When was Hound gruff?

The character was completely in awe of everything about Earth.  He was one of the more upbeat characters throughout the entire series.

/special place in my heart for that character
//first transformer I ever owned... still have him.

Pretty much this.  If they manage to make a fun movie to watch out of it, all the better, but if it looks like it'll suck, it's not like that will significantly diminish my entertainment options.

The thing is, studios re-boot these properties because they know nostalgia porn sells.  But if you're going to sell a demographic on a brand of nostalgia they enjoy consuming, try and be a little more faithful to the brand.  Transformers was about cheesy 80s action cartoon plots and characters, and GIANT ROBOTS FIGHTING EACH OTHER.

What we got was a movie too heavily focused on human characters, made worse by terrible casting and Attack of the Clones-level of bad dialogue.  And when the robots finally did fight, half the time you couldn't really see what was going on because of awful cinematography.

/VG Cats wasn't all that hyperbolic when they called it "Dawson's Creek with robots".
