    :bay 

    Let's do this!

    Favourite :bay  would be Optimus running towards Shockwave with the world cheering him on with explosive fury.

    Least favourite :bay  would be Megatron using his weapon flail on the rooftop and then there was a :bay . Inapporpriate unless his flail is equipped with proximited charges or something.

    My favorite will be the :bay  of the entire village at the climax of ROTF. I mean, it's in the Guinness Book, right? Props!

    I favor all :bay , so I don't think I have a least favorite.

    Off the top of my head, I want to say the same. That scene with Carly was ridiculously stupid.

    And Ironhide kicking Crankcase into the store was awesome.

    Fav: The array of random nonsensical explosions around Optimus as he swoops down in DOTM to Shockwave. It's as if the Gods of fire themselves seek to deliver him to his goal, even if there's no good reason for it.

    Least fav: I can't really think of a single innapropriate explosion that wasn't awesome in it's hilarity or visuals.

    This. For me, there wasn't an explosion that was needlessly put in (I'm talking like, Sam with his dogs while, say, their collars blow up or something like that). Every explosion seemed realistic in either its execution or, if it was slightly ridiculous, it was slightly humourous (the random explosions 20 feet from Optimus during his murder mile).

    Does it matter whether they are on-set, practical explosions or computer generated?

    I'd probably have to break it up between the movies.

    *My "least favourites" aren't explosions that I hated, simply ones that I liked...the least.

    Transformers

    Most: Bonecrusher :bay  through the bus.

    Least: Megatron punching his way through the roof of the building.

    Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

    Most: When The Fallen/protoforms take down the aircraft carrier.

    Hilarious: When the two halves of Sideways :bay  after rolling away after being cut by Sideswipe. They're explosions in the background, but seriously, he cuts him in half, they roll away...and BOOM! explode into nothingness. :lol 

    Least: When Frankie and Mojo's doghouse is blown up by the Kitchenbots.

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon

    Most: Oh, gosh, there's just so many to choose from.

    -The destruction of the Xanthium
    -Starscream's head being blown off
    -Optimus crashing through the skyscraper

    But I'd have to say that Optimus' entire Ragin' Murder Mile takes the cake, for both the epic-ness of the explosions (his mere presence makes objects erupt in flames) and the hilarity of the random explosions at his feet.

    Hilarious: When the telephone booth erupts in an explosion when Crankcase (or Crowbar? Can't remember.) falls into it after colliding with Ironhide.

    Tied with when Ironhide kicks Crankcase into the store. Even Ironhide's reaction by shielding himself was sort of like "Wait, why did that explode?" :lol 

    Least: Probably the entire collapsing of Cybertron. Obviously for time and budget purposes, it had to be cut short, but it just felt a little lacklustre.
