Exclamation NO more Transformers movies please....for 100 years!

People are moaning too much about these movies. They will never be seen or credited as great movies, with or without humans. People go to a TF movie to get entertained! The sooner you people learn, the sooner you stop moaning about them.

Yeah most of them (like me) watch movies to escape from reality, they don't care if its really good as long as it looks cool and its entertaining.

I'm sure that there are some awful movies that you liked.

I enjoyed TF1 and TF3. I know that these are not masterpieces of storytelling ... however, I see them as ganged-up upon, and I'm under-impressed. There are some far worse or comparably poorly-written movies that have done better and even much better critically: Thor 2, Star Trek into Darkness, Contagion, etc.

When it's "cool" to hate something, that's when it's no longer smart to hate something.

If you want to prove how smart you are, don't go around telling everybody that your IQ is just too damn high to enjoy Transformers... instead, provide an analysis explaining its popularity, or, don't feel the need to prove anything, that's ok too.

Instead of spending millions of dollars on a new film you could just watch Robot Wars (anybody remember that !) !

These have all been horrible. The third one was decent but still horrible. With technology, you can really make it a good film, it just needs a good director. Imagine if Nolan were doing these films. Just because they're robots doesn't mean there can't be a good storyline. We're just being fed hot visual garbage. Watching the films, I have no idea who is who except for the obvious prime and bumble bee. You aren't drawn to any characters personalities at all like the cartoons. With good writing, this could be a hit. Maybe they need to start with less characters in reboot or prequel. Idk, but i do know it needs a better direction and director.

The way I see it if you dont like anything about the film why come on to the Transformer section of superhero Hype and moan about it. Why not just stay away and comment on the threads of the movies/games/tv shows you do like.

Why do you HAVE to moan about it? Wouldn't it be easier to just forget the movies exist and move on with your life?

Cause its a forum where you're allowed to voice your opinion both good n bad. To bad if you don't like the voices of those who didn't like the 3 films.

That's what I think about the Harry Potter and LOTR movies but every time I go to a convention I see cosplayers dressed up and it brings back the memories.

Bay's TF movies are horrible. If you like them, you like horrible things. Nothing wrong with that.

No matter what the fan community says, these films are very well liked by the general public, expecially Teens, since it pretty much delivers in what they like to see more in movies, getting kick-ass special effects and action, as well as American Pie type of comedy.

I like these films on a purelly visceral level and due to that am quite hyped for Age of Extinction. They're not great films, they're actually kind of bad, but i still find them incredibly entertaining, i also like to see one of the few last classic type of film franchises, as you don't get constant promises for "the next film" with stingers and they don't give you half a movie because of an already planed sequel, each film earns its sequel.

As for a reboot, no matter how bad Bay's era was, it will get a major stygma unless it offers a fresh new experience like the recent Godzilla reboot. And then, most of the public of these films may end up being disapointed in seeing a Transformers film with not as incredible special effects or with less focus on the military.

When the inevitable reboot transitating from Michael Bay to a new Director comes out, i see a similar situation to Spider-Man happening, where a high priority franchise close to getting the top 1 of the box-office suddenly loses much of its steam and has to win its audience back.

All movies, bad or good, give a lot of people work. I'm not talking about Mark Walhberg or Michael Bay, I'm talking about assistants, best boys, drivers, etc. So even if it's a big piece o' crap, a lot of people get experience that could move them onto better projects.

As long as Michael Bay lives, there should be TF movies, and he should at least be producing them. Because I want Michael Bay to be contained somehow, and at the same time many people like those movies.

I thought TF1 was okayish, and the rest of them crap. But I watched them anyway. Somehow, sometime I will also watch TF4 and most likely think it sucks. In any case Michael Bay wins.

Bay has actually made one movie I really liked. The Island.

About TF fans, I like those bastards. They're not the ones waging the studio wars or whining all over the place. Seems like they're the exact opposites of fanboys, because I never see/hear them raving about how great these movies are or how everyone else is an idiot for not thinking like them. They just like to watch robots, boobs and explosions and I can't find anything wrong with those things.

People need to accept the fact that it's perfectly ok to enjoy a poorly made movie... same way it's perfectly ok to not enjoy a well made movie.

Just don't try to tell me Revenge of the Fallen is a well made movie. It's definitely not. But it's definitely ok to enjoy the hell out it!

True, with these films i'm just expecting more and more spectacle, and it's what i'm being given with every movies. I agree that even dumb entertainment should try to improve when it comes to the plot, in Bay's case i think he has to tone down the comedy a lot. Criticism in the 2nd film made him try to improve for the 3rd film, and the result was a slightly darker film with a much easier to follow action.

About Michael Bay being contained, what do you fear him doing exactly? I myself would like to see his Bad Boys III and his Ghost Recon adaptation.

As for his best film, i vote for The Rock, it's possibly the only one i will argue at not being a bad film and it was incredibly entertaining. My guess is that he needs a studio restraining him.

Or a producer like Spielberg. That's why the first Transformers was so much better than the sequels.

I agree that The Rock is a genuinely well made film and fun as hell. Armageddon had it's moments too.

Oh yea Pearl Harbour has got some great moments too. Actually Pain and Gain isn't too bad either for me. Baffles me when i see people say it's glamorising those guys.

To tell the truth, in the past few years, it seems like Spielberg's Production credits have been with less involvement in his part, in the first film we also followed one of his ideas, which was to make it a story about a boy and his first car, after that i don't remember him giving any more ideas or talking much about those movies, Bay says he called RotF "Awesome", and about DotM i don't think he even said anything.

I enjoyed Armageddon too, but i'm not going to defend it as easily, it's definitelly a trickier one. I do respect Bay in that he's one of the last old type of Hollywood blockbuster Directors, as he doesn't go into a movie with the expectations of a sequel and limiting what he can do, he simply makes films that stand on their oun enough and earns the sequels.
