    Has it occurred to anyone that the only way to make everyone happy with a Transformers movie (those craving more character development, those demanding unerring faithfulness to sacred GeeWun, those who hate the human element, etc.) would be to simply drop the live action element and make an entirely CGI film?

    Not that I'm completely advocating it (as I actually enjoy what we're getting), but still, discuss.

    Nope.

    Because crappy writing is crappy writing, regardless of the medium.

    I can see them making a direct to DVD CGI-only flick ala the 4 Bionicle movies. Albeit, I don't think the movieverse would be the best fictional avenue for such a venture.

    As stated above, you'll never make everyone happy.

    And stop using the term "Geewun" it's derogatory and is only intended to piss people off. You're trolling your own thread.

    no TF film live action, CGI, or pure animation will ever satisfy everyone there always be at least one person who finds one little detail to complain about and it won't matter how minor that detail is or how perfect everything else is that person will complain

    Yeah, I agree that there will never be 100% satisfaction between the fans, as everyone likes differing things. But bad writing is bad writing, so a CGI film will be just flawed as a live action film imo.

    QFT. One person will turn into 5, and it will continue as it's picked apart with a fine toothed comb. So my answer is no, there will never be 100% satisfaction

    There is just no way to make everyone 100% happy because Transformers is just too darn big after 25 years to cram everything that everyone likes into any sort of movie. You are sure to find something that was left out that will be a bit of a disappointment for someone sort of like how I loved Animated but I was let down that we only had three Dinobots instead of five and only one of them talked.

    Or if you do something to please one faction you end up leaving out an important element for other fans. Some fans don't want any humans at all and yet other fans would find something missing if we didn't have humans in some sort of way in the movie.

    Good writing, great villains, a nice visual style, and characters the fans can get into is what you need if it's live action, CGI, or traditional animation. By not giving them every last thing they want all at one time it gives them a reason to keep coming back. So we should shoot for mostly happy not totally happy.

    You could make a 3-hour CGI movie with an award-winning script and the best elements from every single TF series ever created and people will still "bitch and moan".

    Like the majority has already said, there's no way to make 100% of the fandom happy.

    How is GeeWun offensive? It's merely spelling G1 phonetically.

    Or you could just let the fandom write and produce the next transformers movies. Problem solved.

    There will never, EVER be 100 per cent satisfaction with anything ever. If doctors came up with a drug that would let people live forever I can guarantee someone will be upset. So there's no chance a movie will bring everyone together.

    That being said, I could get behind a 100% CGI film but only if there were no humans in it...maybe a completely Cybertron based movie.
