    that was funny

    something many people don't understand is this is one movie that is "hated" and loved for the same reasons

    except from different perspectives

    very interesting

    I agree. A fun article.

    It effectively captures the schizophrenic dichotomy of the TF movie franchise and its love-it-or-hate-it qualities.

    I would have taken a rather Batman Begins-ish approach with Transformers.
    Action and Thought... good mix of both...

    I don't care if it's a kids show. Batman was a kids comic book.

    Cameron's not a Godsend; am I the only one in here that thinks that???

    And what a lame title for a movie.

    Plus...I think Bay was the right choice for Transformers; granted Michael Bay knows **** about storytelling, but then again, these movies should be all about giant robots, and they are. Sure the first one had no big TF action until sixty minutes in, but that was for budget purposes.

    For Transformers, story is last on the list, imo. It's not meant to be in the same category of The Dark Knight.

    And also, it won't bomb. So far, it's been getting mixed to positive reviews, much like the first film.

    That's because we didn't get a Michael Bay's Iron Man.
    I bet if it was directed by him, the armors would have been disgusting, but people like you would have liked them anyway just because you just accept what they swallow in your mouths.

    Prove it. Cuz almost every Batman comic made from the 80's till now is full on adult.

    Oh and by the way....G1 would never ever work. Ever. I can assure you no one wants to see colorful boxes run around....

    Oh, and BTW, my problem with Bayformers doesn't lie just on the designs.
    The characters, the jokes, the camera shakes and the plots are all crap.
    The only thing I owe to Bay is his photography.

    G1 can be worked out to look less boxy and more detailed:

    And this is just a drawing.
    I bet in ILM's CGI it would be wonderful.

    It's just a matter of work. With more details and darker textures, every G1 can look cool.
    This is just an example of how much better G1 can look vs the animated series:

    5. Megan Fox and Shia Labeouf

    For God's sake, audiences have had enough of these two ******s, and they've only been in one movie together. Trix the Rabbit is a better actor than Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf has relied on his 'flustered' look for far too long. Neither one of them can deliver a line with any sort of sincerity, and they don't even look like they belong together. They had zero chemistry in the original and it will probably be the same for the sequel. Everytime Megan shows up on screen guys have to go get checked for STD's and Shia is so overrated that audiences are sick of looking at his ****face. Expect these two to meander their way through another movie.

    Here's another one. Remember that I'm not saying this should be the final designs. You should take them as concept art.
