    I was happy to see that they incorporated a few moments between these two that reminded me of their relationship in G1 specifically.
    The NY rooftop and Cybertron Hatchling scenes really brought a smile to my face.
    Whilst some new bots may have been short changed, the one good thing is that the ones that got no development in the first film, got much more here.
    Are you happy to see the banter between Megs and Starscream developed more in ROTF?

    I liked it, but it would've been better if Starscream did anything do deserve the abuse.

    Yeh, but I just assumed their past had many moments where SS provoked Megs and Megs just automatically thumps him these days. :lol 
    Plus, Megs was provoked by SS less than sincere apology for stranding him on Earth and assuming he is no longer the leader.

    I loved it. It was nice to see that at least some things don't change with time. I wonder though if Starscream had simply stayed quiet the whole scene would Megatron have sarted smacking him around?

    Megs was most likely gloating in his mind having just... we all know what he did, then SS came in with "but we lost the boy..."

    it was cool that they made that relationship true to G1, but it made SS look like a total bitch, whereas he was actually really badass in the first movie.

    I hear what you're saying. Its a fine line, but I think it worked 'just right' in ROTF. Hopefully he doesn't turn into just being a 'bitch'.

    I'm hoping that it's the beginning of the whole SS tries to overthrow Megs angle. It could make for an interseting part 3 if they had 3 factions. Autobots vs Decepticons vs Starscream and his band of defectors.

    I've had the idea of a Decepticon civil war in my head for the third film, so seeing the banter that occurred in the third film turn into a full-fledged conflict between Decepticon factions would be pretty sweet. I loved the interaction between the two in RotF and hope it continues/progresses in a third film.

    ^ This.

    Had the 'thats the Starscream and Megatron I remember' moment when the banter on the Nemesis started.

    I could see Starscream breaking off from Megatron because of his over obsessiveness on things and the fact he let another being direct his actions (the Fallen).
    Basically have Starscream like in the Reign of Starscream comics where he breaks off with his own group to do what he sees as the for the better of the entire Cybertronian race by going against Megatron AND the Autobots.

    I thought it was one of the best parts of the movie.

    "Starscream I'm home!"

    Megatron needs to deploy that PIMP SLAP more...plus there was not enough time of a beatdown on the screamer in my opinion...If i had been megatron and been abandoned to sit in an ocean for 2+ years...I would be alittle more than pissed off at the screamer's poor excuse of an apology....

    i would have been beating him with a ripped off arm and leg....

    It was great - G1 style homage from start to finish between those two, from Megs powerful reassertion to Starscream of his status as the Decepticon's one and only leader, to the very end when Optimus knocks the slag outta him, and he's left calling for the very soldier he distrusts and belittles so much.

    Loved it all.

    In TF2 we saw starscream's fake loyalty. I hope to see his treachery in TF3.
