    Just watched X-Men: DOFP! That movie has everyting a fanbase want: Character developement, drama, action, good humor and respect for the fanbase. I'm stoke for AOE, but I have feeling it would continue the line from the previous, DOTM. Maybe a slight better, but people talking about Lockdown plotting and scheming like a Bane from Batman? Don't hold your hope too high.

    Ew, please no. He can make good X-Men movies, but that's as far as he can go. I'll stick with Bay.

    So you want to stick with a director that doesn't flesh out the TF and making them like background character?

    Oh boy......
    Seriously another director thread by the same person?

    EDIT: By the way, it's "Bryan" not "Brian".

    That seems like it may change a bit with AoE.

    That is the writer's job, sir. Not the director's. So, in other words, that's Ehren Kruger's job, not Bay's, and he does pretty well with it.

    Most of the X Men weren't given any development in this movie. Hell, a lot of them weren't even named. They just showed up to be brutally murdered.

    I think Bryan Singer is a good director, but, I don't think he did a great job on the X-Men movies.

    We need a writer/director team that aren't afraid to let the transformers lead the plot in terms of dialogue and pro-active ..uh.. actions.

    Indeed. Introducing characters just to kill them, but blame the writer for that...and Bays personal hatred.

    I am a massive Nolan fanboy and even I think that wont work. Nolan's films are rooted in philosophical and sociological concepts and ideas, exploring human morality, a Transformers film need's to have big over the top action. As much as I love Nolan and all his work, I would not want him to direct a TF movie.

    Even if you had the most brilliantly written script ever written if you don't have a director who is a good story teller then that story isn't going to translate well onto the screen. The director is what turns written words into moving picture and even if an actor has ideas on a character a director can always yell cut you are saying it wrong.

    Resurrect history's greatest writers from the dead and even a dream team of writers could not come up with something that Uwe Boll could make into a great film. But a director who is a great story tell can take a weak story and with the help of some talented actors turn a weak script into a pretty good story.

    I watched DoFP this afternoon. It's good...but I'm getting bored of seeing Wolverine as the main character in (almost) every single X-Men film. He's turning in their version of Bumblebee.

    AoE is an action film. It's going to start all angsty and then stuff will explode (You don't waste CGI moneyz on exposition! ;)  ). Maybe OP will try to redeem himself after all his various murderous rampages...if you're lucky.

    So, the X-Men version of Bayformers?

    Isn't it the other way around?

    just goes to show how empty the term "character development" is.

    Also ew, the man with a great movie and two good ones with the rest bleeding with mediocrity. Not to mention he is one of the most negative and arrogant Directors I've ever seen. Again, I'll stick with Bay, especially since everyone that works on his films loves him.
