Take out the explosions and add some light aircraft and people drinking coffee and you can have yourselves a Coleman Francis movie.

Mark Wahlberg is going to be in the fourth movie? I can't wait.

"Hey. So you're Optimus Prime? You turn into a semi truck, huh? Yeah. Well, I was in 'Ted' with Seth MacFarlane. Say 'hello' to your mother for me."

Macular Degenerate: I never watched Lens Flare Fest 1 and 2 - why would I start watching the franchise at Episode 3?

We're not talking about the Trek movies

Heims: The first one was fairly good

Just for curiosity's sake, what part of the first movie was fairly good?

Was it the alien robots peeing, farting, humping, and stepping in dog poo while trying to hide behind a house? Was it the cinematography, with its closeups of jagged metal and shaky claustrophobic in-your-face nonsense of blurring colors and loud, obnoxious noises trying to confuse you instead of show you what's going on? Was it the schizophrenic direction, giving the audiences five opposing tones and moods states in a 40 second timeframe? Where it completely loses focus as to how it wants you to feel about it? And the marketing can't decide if its a slapstick comedy, a teen romantic fable, an action adventure, a political thriller or a war epic? Was it the writing, wrought with plot holes, continuity errors, inane backstory, cringing dialogue, hackneyed cliches like "destiny" subplots and "loser gets the girl" MTV date movie bullshiat? Was it the characters -- underdeveloped and underutilized, with no redeeming qualities in any of the humans and barely any humanity in the robots (except for one), where the leads were played by "exasperated suprised man" and "wooden pinup girl"? Was it the setting, that jumped around from city to desert to halfway around the world without any real considerable time given to how the characters could all get there so fast? Was it the fact that everyone's wearing lipstick for some reason? Was that fairly good? Really?

I avoided these movies, because Michael Bay is a hack... And then one week I decided to torture myself and watch all three, one per day, for three days I had off.

Man... I want to kick Michael Bay in the nuts. Hard.

/Also, Shia thebeef is terrible and should be stopped.

I loved his Top Gear interview when he admitted to stealing a neighbor's car on roughly 12 occasions.

If anything, the main problem with the last three films was that there was too much plot.

Seriously, if Michael Bay wants to make a good Transformers film, he should just stick to what he's good at and film 2 hours of giant robots and wall-to-wall explosions without any corny human plot lines in between. That's what the audience wants, anyway.

Okay for good measure, he can also stick in a few scenes of a skimpily dressed Megan Fox (or that British chick, or whatever skirt is "washing his Ferrari" nowadays).
