Default Re: Will there ever be a good Transformers movie?

The movie are what they are, but I think the second film fundamentally flawed, even for a popcorn flick. It's the one movie where I felt like I felt stupid for the world.

I think the perfect popcorn flick is 'Fast 5'; it delievers in the fun, pacing and action. But it never stoops to the lowest common denominator like showing off robotic balls or stupid slapstick humor (from the useless twins). If you gonna have banter, make it funny.

I've always felt that Transformers don't strive to do..more with the story. And while you can say it shouldn't, I mean, again, look at Fast 5. Or better yet, look at the Marvel Studios films. They never stoop low for anyone.

Transformers is junk food but once in a while, it's okay to sneak in an apple. Hopefully that apple can be part 4.
