Responsibility is what everyone seems to be lacking today. It all comes back to that.


In my opinion current day parents let their children get away because their own parents were either strict to the point that they saw it as harsh or abusive the difference between the two is that the second is an actual good reason to be nice to their kids.

My Step Dad was pretty abusive to me but my mum is pretty darn nice and the reason she never noticed him being abusive was because she was the one who went to work all day and he stayed home to "work" on his own business of being a graphics designer which hardly went anywhere until he eventually ran away to another country like the coward he was.

And I'm pretty sure that the parents who see their kids as paychecks is a minority cause most parents I know or hear about love their children.

But back in my day parents actually disciplined their children. Now when I go out I see kids running around, climbing on things and the parents don't do anything about it. I know I probably sound like a cranky old man but those kids are not only obnoxious but they could get hurt.

I used to work security at some local concerts. Now these were family friendly concerts mostly held at at school auditoriums. Of course people would bring their kids to come check out whatever band was playing. I would have to tell so many children off from playing in the isles and walkways...and this was also during set up time too. Someone could come whipping around the corner with a hand cart full of guitar amps or other equipment and run into your kid! And on top of that parents would sometimes get mad at me for enforcing safety rules. (It's actually against the rules to block the walkways, go ask the fire marshal)

Realistically speaking, if these movies were watered down for children, they simply would not exist. They wouldn't make money because 1. the entire audience would be little kids and their parents, which isn't a huge demographic, especially considering they can just watch cartoons that have basically the same stuff. 2: no company would want to have their products in them, like say, the cars, because... most of the audience isn't old enough to have a car... and 3: it would be weird. Example: Hound gets shot a few times, do you really think it would be normal for him to say "ah, heck you guys".

These movies are marketed to young adults/teens because that is arguably the largest movie going demographic. You water the movies down to make them for children... these movies wouldn't make HALF of the money that they do.

We really need a new g1 film.
"Do you have the time - to listen to me whine?
About nothing and everything all at once!
I am one of those
Melodramatic fools
Neurotic to the bone
No doubt about it

Sometimes I give myself the creeps
Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me
It all keeps adding up
I think I'm cracking up
Am I just paranoid?
Or am I just stoned?"

But why though what would be the point?

G1 already ended a long time ago and we already have a film series still running with at least a couple more movies and believe it or not there are movie fans out there and ending the movies halfway would be a bad idea since the current story should be finished before moving on.

Reboots are an awful idea I mean when was the last good reboot...ever?

And what is a G1 film is it just the designs and copy paste characters or do you mean just rip off the story from the cartoon?

The ideal thing would be a new Transformers show that also has live action movies that are connected with the show such as the show taking place in between the time gaps of the movies.

I think the answer is pretty simple. The first movie was an experiment and made godbillion dollars. So what'd they do with subsequent films? More. MORE. MORE.

If it works why change it eh?

It's disheartening but Children are becoming more and more like us with every years that goes by.

At the very least DOTM only had a small handful of bad jokes and AOE had like 2 or 3 at most so clearly Bay or someone else realized what jokes not to repeat like compare DOTM Wheelie and his ROTF counterpart.
