    As we all know the previous 3 movies were not a hit with critics and there was a lot of mistakes made, but even just from the trailers AOE looks so much better from the CGI Designs to the plot, Bay could really do it this time !

    I agree with you at this point, but to really win me over he needs equality in screen time for all the new bots and more character development.

    They're critics though, it's the Transformers fanbase that really matters and I really loved the Bay movies. Also I agree with you on the designs, Primes new robot form is pretty damn creative along with everyone else. Has Prime ever been a knight before AoE? Actually I've taken to calling him Knightimus Prime.

    Yeah, but unless it's Avengers-level good it'll get a lot of hate on these forums.

    Hell, even if it were Avengers-level good it'd get hated on around here.

    So basically, those who like it: enjoy. Those who don't: spend the next 3 years ranting at us who do.

    It's not even the fanbase that matters, but the silent, general audience.

    Even if wasn't a big hit with either the critics or the fanbase, one of the three hitting the top 10 most grossing movies of all time (at number 7) says something. With the trilogy's track record, it could very well move even higher up that list.

    My dad once told me that no matter how good you are, there always will be someone complaining about what you do. You have to look past it and keep doing whatever makes you happy.

    I guess that's what Bay's been doing since ROTF.

    I don't care what the critics or fellow transfans say, I know I'll love it

    I think Frozen bumped it back some. No joke.

    That was a pretty good movie but Transformers still beats it in my opinion.

    Yep, Frozen was great. I thought Tangled was better, but Transformers was better than that.

    Still though, regardless where the movies lie on any list, I'll always enjoy them.

    Because being on a list never bothered me anyway.

    Never. For one, it's Michael Bay. He's not going to suddenly become a different person with one movie.

    Second, him and this movie franchise have become such a joke in the public eye there's no way it'll be regarded as anytihng but yet another one of his stupid robot movies. Even if it's halfway decent, it's still a Bay movie.

    Never bothered me anyway.

    Its a line in the song "Let it Go" from the movie Frozen.

    "The cold never bothered me anyway."
