now every day, and every week goes by more of the cast is announced, more transformers are revealed. also my thoughts on ROTF since I am a new member here too Now the negative part on ROTF and how to get it right for T3 For transformers fans like myself hoping that T3 will redeem itself from the mess that was ROTF, we are all hoping the reason why ROTF was such a mess was? that the writers strike is the reason why ROTF was such a rudderless ship, yes it was entertaining but so much useless scenes could have been cut, to develop the 3 biggest names in ROTF, optimus prime, megatron, and the fallen, all 3 were so underused it is not even funny. lets look at optimus prime - all prime fans will only even like ROTF because of how bad ass prime was he seemed so angry, owning megatron and the decepticons, crushing the fallen, but? by the time megatron kills prime in the forest, and when prime returns the movie is almost over, that's well over an hour of filming time optimus prime is never in the film, also he never once said megatrons name in ROTF like he never met him before megatron - a bad ass in transformers and truly a monster in T1, he returns and he is a servant of the fallen, when megatron if bay and co even looked into megatrons personality in the cartoons he never bows down to anyone, some say he is stronger than no1. Yet he is way too bulky and slow, he basically has one arm, how can he supposed too fight a upgraded prime with one arm, and his screen time is has limited has T1 the fallen - what was the point of this guy in ROTF, he must have had no more than 10 minutes of screen time overall, and the title ROTF, what is his revenge, when a more perfect title would be return of the fallen, bay on commentary says they ran out of time so they had too rush the final fight between prime megatron and the fallen. Now what scenes could he have removed to give these 3 transformers more screen time. yea he could have removed the pointless college introduction with Sam not even bothered having the twins in the movie do not even bother having the parents in ROTF never develop the pointless relationship Sam had with fox's character you eliminate the douche bag character that tagged along with Sam and co also the battle 10 minutes could have been cut instead of pointless scenes where there is so much explosions going on, lets not forget robot heaven LOL now T3 Bay seems to have cut some of the fat, not bringing back megan fox, negative part he is replacing like for like with another pretty girl. But the PPL who are casted for T3 is exciting, like bay announced he tends too cut the goofy comedy and go for a darker route, but some of the transformers brought back worries me, like? the twins and Wheelie, these 3 alone can destroy any movie, like jar jar binks can alone, just give you enough of a headache to make you have a overdose on painkillers. I want more airtime for optimus prime, megatron, Soundwave, and new transformer Shockwave, more deaths for the autobots and the humans, and less comedy and go for a more gritty darker movie, because transformers is a perfect film that can be a really dark edgy movie. But with micheal bay incharge I have my doubts So overall there are positives but there a phew things that concern me, if the twins and wheels were removed, and no new pretty girl was replaced with megan fox, I can see bay really evolving transformers and he is solving the wrongs in ROTF, but the problems that ravaged ROTF may still be there but I do not seeing it has poor has ROTF.
