    sams grampa found megs and he announced to his crew that they made a discovery. so that means that the crew either saw megs too or they just lifted him out and ignored his claim. so other peoples familys might be involved too bringing more humans into the third movie perhaps

    Oh you've an interesting point, but they won't focus on them, at all.

    Examples:

    TF07 barely had any real material to work with in terms of the characters.

    Sam, Mikaela, Ron, Judy, Mojo (yes, he was in there long enough to have material written about him, obviously.), Sam's tree hanging douchebag friend, Lennox, Epps, Figuroa, Simmons, Banacek, Maggie, Glen, and Keller.

    And all of that before we even got to Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Ironhide, Jazz, Starscream, Frenzy, Barricade, Blackout, Scorponok, Bonecrusher, Brawl, and Megatron.

    The entire TF portion suffered by being limited to a handful of impressive scenes.

    The human portion was boring because there was no real depth to the characters. None.

    "Sam's a hormone driven teenager!"
    "Mikaela is the mysterious beauty with secrets all her own!"
    "Mom, Dad, Simmons and most of Sector 7 are laff-a-matic!"

    The material was too thin to begin with, and then it was stretched to fit a 2.5 hour movie. Yeah...something's gotta give. Unfortunately the quality of the characters and story did.

    Oh the final presentation was an assault to the senses and the visuals knocked you out of your seat, and there was genuine quality behind that portion of the film, but the rest of it (the majority of the film in terms of story) was a boring waste.

    ROTF:

    Working with about the same level of material (a bit more than the first though) and you'd think that'd be fine considering they learned their lessons with the first one, problem is, this film's seven minutes longer. Doesn't seem like a lot of time, but it really is. They can't have seven minutes of vapid goofiness, (thank God) no, they need material (which would be better used on the story itself) to help fill that seven minutes.)

    They're adding Leo into the mix, and he has a more important role over Sam's douchey friend, so while it seems like it's not a big deal since one character's replacing the other, this guy actually has an impact on the storyline, the doofus didn't. So yet, another character requiring a background (which will be neglected.) More material they're stretching thin. So thin that it should be as strong as steel and when it snaps, it'll cut you in half.

    And that's all before we get to:
    Jetfire, Wheelie, Skids, Mudflap, Jolt, Ravage, Soundwave, Long Haul, Demolishor, Mixmaster, Rampage, Devastator, Scalpel, Alice (who's
    2 in 1
    , so double the work.) Grindor, Ransack, The Fallen, Sideswipe, Arcee (x3), Sideways, plus the 40 odd bots running around tearing shit up. And that doesn't even count fleshing out more of Optimus and his crew from the first film.

    With the third movie waiting in the wings, if they add anymore unimportant humans, you might as well call it "The Hills: Bad Motherfucker Edition" and not even try and put Transformers in it.

    They won't go back to Captain Witwicky's crew, it'd be project suicide. But, if they did, the movie would be even longer than these two, the same amount of material stretched thin AGAIN, and the robots would all be called Herp and Derp.

    No thanks, pass.
