Richard Donner Disses Transformers! It's old news. But he doesn't seem to get it: the Transformers ARE the characters. It's about them, it always has been. They're not just aliens on Earth, they're characters whose interplay determines the fate of the Earth (especially in the third film with Sentinel Prime) Besides, his SUPERMAN flick to some level inspired the first TFilm (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0418279/trivia).
