    Animated Bumblebee proved that you can have a Bumblebee who isn't just another copy-paste of the movie version.

    It would require that the major heads behind the project understand that the Transformers are characters as well.

    Guess what Lorenzo firmly believes is not true.

    It would require Bay, Hasbro, Paramount and Knight(who I think should be the defining person this time around) to realize that.

    To be fair, Animated was a whole different beast altogether. It was actually bringing innovation to the franchise. I doubt we'll ever get that again—at least in a long time.

    Except Lorenzo inexplicably has more clout in these films - he himself said in an interview he was the one who "combined" scripts to give us TF5.

    Agreed. Animated was probably the last time that a team who truly cared about Transformers was behind the wheel. People who appreciated the franchise such that they paid respect to it while going into absolutely new territory.

    Never watched TLK or AoE more than once. Stop generalizing.

    I hope she bumps into the Stranger Things kids at Kmart and they have G1 Tfs in their hands. 
    Double cameo.

    Alright then. Wether I'm the biggest Bee fan or not is irrelevant. You have your reasons to believe I'm not and I have my reasons to believe I am. Perhaps we'll never know. That doesn't matter right now. I have to say you have and still are missing my point totally. Let me try to brake it down for you. I didn't even think of critisising her acting skills or underestimate her knowledge nor have I actually done it. I have only expressed my annoyance towards her "know everything about the movie I star in" attitude. Neither she, neither you, neither anybody else knows exactly how I feel about this franchise and this character specifically and I don't need some girl to tell me how awesome a fictional character is. Even more that I'm pretty sure she hasn't seen all the movies. I bet she hasn't researched about the character that much either. It's actually pretty simple - she can act (or not, remains to be seen), she stars in a famous film series as the lead character next to probably the most famous character from that series who is loved by majority of the fandom so she has to say something positive to really look like as if she cares for the movies (she might actually do), to gain their trust in a way . What I'm trying to signify is her passion for the things she is doing. A typical trait for a young person. They pretend (in some cases, most likely in this one as well) to understand something just because they're a part of it or have something to do with it.
    Now if my knowledge has led me to traiding wittcisms and you're have spent some from your time time to reply than I'm sure it's obvious what your knowledge has led you to.


    M-U-T-U-A-L. Also...saying "greater" makes it seem as if you think of yourself as a great man. :D  You need to help yourself first buddy.

    That alone literally contradicts your statement. I'm not sure intentionally tuning someone out is DECENCY, since you appear to be worshipping it.

    Young actress is excited about the big IP movie that could be advancing her career and knows enough about the picture she's playing in. It's just a promotional material for a movie. Wishing the best for her career and for the movie but I don't really care about the Ballgagbee. I'll watch the movie, tho.



    Ignoring something you are uninterested in especially when it's coming from a celebrity you don't care about not disrespectful. It's just ignoring the background noise.

    Meanwhile responding in a patronising, disparaging and overall sexist way (the word "girl" used in a way suggesting as if she knew nothing because she's a younger female) kinda is.

    She probably knows little of the franchise... But then, she does not need to know. All she needs to know to perform is her role and her parts of the script.

    Yes, I do. However I can't remember talking about the cartoon series. I meant the live-action version of Bumblebee. Then again, thanks for explaining all that to me but it really contributes to nothing, so...

    I wish this movie were about a young girl who gets herself involved in something way over her head (is a witness to a mafia hit for example) is about to be killed gets pulled out at the last minute by a talking car. But her troubles are not over as a corrupt cop is determined to use her as a skapegoat or is on the mafia paycheck but nobody believes her so her life is in danger. To save her again Bee must reveal himself, he explains that he is all alone, the only member of his species on Earth. The cop and his cronies run off scared. Then the cops car transforms into barricade. Whole mafia subplot is actually a decepticon plot to. I dunno, rule the world through human patsies.

    Follows an old fashioned cat and mouse game with Bee terrified as he is heavily outmatched but trying not to show it. Cue elaborate plot to outwit the enemy which ends with barricade injured but not out. They remove the threat to Hailee but barricade shows up again, threatens Bee and speeds off. Bee realizes that he can't beat barricade and must go into hiding so he leaves Hailee behind and sets off, alone, afraid and hunted. Barricade is shown prowling around. As Bee is cowering, hiding, afraid Barricade finds him. They begin duking it out and it is clear that Bee won't survive. Before the killer blow is delivered a familiar semi truck busts in and sends barricade flying. Peter Cullen cameo "old friend, reunited at last, will you join with me to protect these people blablabla" Bee took such a pounding he can't speak, cue Ratchet "pah, I'm sure it's nothing, I'lI have it patched up in no time " comedy moment to lighten the scene and a little nudge to fans because he never does fix it.

    Yeah, I know, it's supposed to be Megatron who destroys his voice box.
    TL,DR:
    Anyway, sorry for the fanfic, all that just to say I'd love to see a less badass fighting Bee and more a conquering his fears to protect others kind of badass Bee.

    Just because you find something or someone (an actor in this case) uninteresting, this doesn't change their opinion nor does it make it inconsequential. Shia Labeouf thinks the name Bumblebee is really silly and @Gordon_4 has chosen to disrespect/deny whatever Labeuof speaks. However this still does not diminish its significance (the statement). Disrespectful can be interpretend in a lot of different ways. If you find ignoring someone's opinion "ignoring the background noise"...well I'm not really sure what to say then.

    Well, sorry if there's some feel of superiority in my comments. I do not really wish to threaten anyone but I will not change the way I feel and I will not miss a chance to express it. My apologies if that makes some feel uncomfortable. While I have my issues with the sexism I will rather not go this path right now. I did not use the word "girl" to suggest anything and PLEASE stop misquoting me. I said a young person (this includes males and females)!

    Ignoring something you are uninterested in especially when it's coming from a celebrity you don't care about not disrespectful. It's just ignoring the backgronoise.

    Meanwhil responding in a patronising, disparaging and overall sexist way (the word "girl" used in a way suggesting as if she knew nothing because she's a younger female) kinda is.

    She probably knows little of the franchise... But then, she does not need to know. All she needs to know is her role and her parts of the script.
    Celebrity's, or anyone else, statement has any significance only if you chose to put any weight into it. Shia's opinion on Bee's name might be important... For him. Disagreement or dismissal of it it's not lack of respect.
    Unless you're going to care of act upon every opinion a several billions of people on this planet can have upon anything.

    In that case every statement is true/not true depending on the way you look at it. Following that logic you're actually confirming what I've been saying from the beginning of this conversation and that is - she doesn't know enough and yet is telling us why this character is awesome. Alright but I choose not to put any weigh into it (using your words). You might not find it important...but it is to me as is your opinion to you still we cotinue to express our thoughts ever so desperatelly...and what's the poing of all this? Should we eve continue. I do not find it right to define ones' opinion as disrespect just because you don't agree with it and then compare with other opinions which serve as an example of what YOU think is not disrespectful.

    I cannot disagree, but I will say in all of history we only had one ruler, The Bay. Now we have a Knight

    I wouldn't say he was lying. It is true to some extent.
