    Are there any small changes you would make in ROTF that you think would make it a little cooler as a movie(and I dont mean items that have been posted to death)? For example:I think it would have looked better if The Fallen transformed to destroyer mode and flew to the top of the pyramid.

    Sure there are changes we could make to improve the movie. But we got the movie we got.

    I'd have shown the arrival of the new Autobots, and their reunion with those here on Earth. Explained how Grindor got there. Shown the Autobots mourning Prime.

    1. The Fallen transforming into Cybertronian destroyer and flying to the pyramid. That could have been so cool.

    2. More lines for Demolisher and Sideways in the Shanghai scene.

    3. The Autobots mourning Prime's death.

    4. More Constructicon lines, and probably make them as brothers.

    5. In the first appearance of Soundwave, he could have been flying towards Earth's orbit in robot mode, using some thursters on his back or something, then transform to his sattelite mode and announce the Decepticons of his arrival and that he will start spying the humans.

    All of that. Plus, remove Wheelie humping, remove the second dog humping shot, and make the Optimus vs.The Fallen fight much longer. But, keep Devastator's balls (I thought it was funny). With those changes, the movie has improved by 50%.

    Only small changes? Very well:

    1. Remove Devastator's balls. Didn't find them funny at all.
    2. Make Ratchet help out Jolt upgrading Prime, instead of just standing there giving commands. He's the doctor, ferchrissakes! :lol 
    3. Make Wheelie less annoying/humping. No Joe Pesci voice, either.

    1. The general audience won't give a crap to go buy the comics, too boring.

    2. Your typing... GOD. Sorry, but... GOD.

    I would have had Long Haul speak with Animated Oil Slick's voice. Make him an intelligent medic, rather than a grunt.

    Show Overload in robot mode, he doesn't have to talk.

    Explain the Constructicons are a series of drones, based off the original Long Haul, Mixmaster, etc.

    Have Jolt talk. I can imagine if Jolt was voiced by Anthony Anderson, he could've said "You got it! One powered up Prime comin' right up!"

    Explore Ironhide and Chromia's relationship, i.e. Ironhide attack Galloway's men when they started to use force to get her under nets.

    Show Ratchet's frustration when it comes to not being able to save Autobots, like Jazz and Prime. Good character development.

    For Sideways, have Sideways get captured in Shanghai, brought in for interrogation, freed by Ravage and Scorponok (make some use of Scorponok if we have him).

    Sideswipe can have a Depth Charge-Rampage rivalry/nemesis with Sideways, with Sideways getting killed in Egypt, with Depth Charge's last line coming from Sideswipe.

    Trim the college scenes

    Cut out all of the potty humor except Devy's balls (don't judge me) and Jetfire's parachute (I liked the fact that it clashed with his "dignity" line)

    Completely overhaul the pretender subplot to actually have it go somewhere

    Put Sideswipe and Jolt in Skids and Mudflap's roles and move the twins to the military base and tone them down completely

    Wheelie hugs Mikaela's leg, not humps it.

    Make Leo tolerable. And not as many testicle jokes, if any.

    Explore the Mission City coverup (I was SOOOO looking forward to learning more about McClaren Robotics) and make it plausible

    Condense the pre-battle egypt scenes

    Remove the bit about the matrix disintegrating/having to be earned

    Alter the exposition so that its style is not so much "in-universe" (TELL THE AUDIENCE WHAT ENERGON ACTUALLY IS!!!)

    A little bit more time with Arcee to actually explore the tri-partite aspect of her

    Show Overload and Hightower at some point

    Don't bother to bring the parents to Egypt

    Lengthen the Optimus v. the Fallen battle

    Less focus on the civilians and more on the military

    All that good stuff

    Actually, yeah it does. We can't change a movie already released.

    But we can discuss what small changes we would've liked to see. I liked the movie, but I would remove Leo Spitz and move Simmons' introduction to an earlier point. He just felt like Simmons-lite until the real Simmons showed up and Simmons'd it up, and after just didn't really do a lot except get his balls abused.

    Simmons, accept no substitute.

    Yes we can.

    We can't add things that were not filmed, but we can cut out everything we want, switch scenes, add sounds, music, alternate/deleted footage which is available etc. Never heard of fanedits?

    i'm waiting for the Director's Cut. two hours of pendulous swinging balls, which explode repeatedly in the last ten minutes whilst prime hollers dick jokes through the fug of his crack pipe.

    ...

    actually, that sounds awesome.
