I know a lot of people were severely disappointed with Movie Screamer's death, but how would you have it happen? I'm actually glad he's dead, I hated him, and other than grovelling at Megatron's feet, he wasn't like Starscream at all. Here's how I would have had him killed: At some point in the Chicago battle (probably around the same time the 'Bots were prisoners, Starscream and Megatron would be discussing their plans for after the Autobot's defeat. Megatron mentions something about being ruler of Cybertron, and it sets Starscream off. He finally cracks and attacks Megatron. However, upon seeing this, Shockwave "intervenes" and kills Starscream for his own personal gain, as he knows it would be much more logical to let the already wounded Megatron take over Cybertron, just to betray him then, rather than attacking Starscream when he has power over Cybertron, as Starscream would probably be expecting any plans to kill him.
