    Alright, who else is worried about the fact that DoTM is being handled by a guy whose writing credits have been placed on movies that suck eggs? Excuse one or two movies he's written, and the rest are terrible.
    I know a lot of what goes into a movie relies on the director, but a director can't make magic out of a terrible writer.

    If his wikipedia page is accurate, then the only movies I've seen that he's written were The Ring and The Brothers Grimm - both of which I enjoyed, especially the latter. I won't pass judgement 'til I see the movie, then I'll have an even better picture of his writing.

    As long as Kruger provides cars transforming into robots that then beat up other robots, just like the other movies, I'll be happy.

    Ehren Kruger was the one who thought of starscream calling megatron a coward at the end of ROTF. I trust he can handle himself.

    he is a reputed Transformers fan so he should understand what will make a good Transformers movie, or we could get something along the lines of Superman returns were the people in charge were Superman fans so it little actual plot but just showed superman being awesome. personally i would like a good movie, hopefully up to par with the 2007 movie

    I'm more worried about people continuously starting threads using their opinions based as fact.

    Given how weak the Transformers movies have been on story and characters I kind of wonder if a writer even matters any more on the films. It's likely going to be just a series of flimsy excuses to get to the next big special effects part of the film.

    I never said it was fact that it was going to suck. I merely pointed out the track record of this particular writer and poised it for interesting discussion.

    So get your facts straight and learn how to read.

    I don't know how it works where you are, but those two sentences are blatantly being stated as if they were fact, rather than opinion.

    Ah, let me rephrase it then.

    The movies that Mr. Kruger have written are generally disliked by movie critics as evidenced by rottentomatoes.com.

    Apologies on my part as I poorly worded my original post.

    He's the one who added "Not to call you a coward, master but... Cowards do survive!" on ROTF.
    That to me, is enough to trust he can handle himself. Hopefully, he'll give us a good story. We'll just have to wait and see after 6 months. :)

    Indeed. And again, if any problems were inadvertently started, I apologize.

    DoTM looks poppin and I am one of those people who thought RotF was actually fairly good.

    I only started this thread to get some opinions going on.

    a bad movie is as much the Director, Producer, and actors faults as much as the writers, a good script can be directed horribly, it can be acted horribly and it can be produced horribly. where as a bad script can be made good, its called improvising and is part of the reason why the original star wars movies were so well received compared to the newer ones
