    Well I was saying a few minutes ago with another user how we movie likers are a minority so he suggested to make a poll and prove me wrong.
    So lets see.

    I'm kind of so-so on the '07 movie, but really liked the following two.

    I like them, but I can see their flaws.

    Change the thread title. I remember a couple years back when a bunch of whiny people called everyone who disliked the movies "haters" and eventually it got out of hand, so a mod told everyone to to stop saying it or something along those lines.

    I hate them primarily because they treat my favorite characters like shit. When an entire film series is about action and all the action scenes insult my favorite characters, what else is there to like?

    I love the 2007 movie. I don't like ROTF and DOTM was better than the second movie, but not as good as the first.

    I loved all 3. Leo and Simmons' ass in Rotf are the only things I'd get rid of.

    I love the movies, as they introduced me to the franchise. I even like ROTF, though I do admit it is the weakest of the trilogy.

    Well I liked the 1st and 3rd one but the fact that you lumped the turd of a 2nd one in there, well guess I gotta vote hate.

    I enjoyed the first movie a lot more than I was expecting to, and while I would say I was entertained by the 2nd and 3rd, they kind of fell flat by comparison to me.

    For everyone who reads that and thinks "What?! DOTM was much better than ROTF!", I agree with that to an extent, and while it had a much more cohesive story, it still had a lot of the problems that plagued ROTF, to such a degree that they appear to be very similar films (intentionally or not) compared to the first film. I felt the first film ran with the concepts of Transformers in a much more endearing way, was deeper from a narrative standpoint, and more faithful to the concepts and history of the franchise.

    I didn't HATE as much as "didn't care for"... They weren't Transformers movies. They were 3 movies about Sam with Transformer cameos... When Spielberg said something to the effect of "Transformers is the story of a boy and his car", I thought "Get that man the hell away from our robot franchise. He obviously doesn't know what the hell he's talking about"...

    I saw them all in the theaters to support the franchise, but that's were it ends... I'm not happy with a 4th one being made... I'm ready for the next thing... It's like having to eat dog ass before you get to the ice cream, but now there's no ice cream... just more dog ass...

    There's fantastic moments drowned in a sea of mess. It's not a great trilogy but once you stop taking it so seriously, it's good entertainment.

    It's impossible for me to vote in this poll because my feelings aren't that simple.

    I love the first movie and love the movieverse itself.

    But then there's the sequels - I enjoy ROTF more than DOTM and can watch it as it has its fun moments, but I still wouldn't call it a very good film. It falls between like and dislike - closer to dislike when thinking about the story and characters.

    I can't watch DOTM all the way through. It falls between dislike and hate.
