    who here agrees...or disagrees that Transformers 3 should no longer be any larger in scale unless it can be done very very well...

    first movie had a magic to it which seemed to be missed by ROTF and this is a pleaa to have the third one be much more emotional, higher stakes, SIDEWAYS, and the ''magic'' that the first one put upon us.

    I'd like to see character interactions, especially with Jolt.

    "We must go FORWARDS, not backwards, UPWARDS, not forwards, and forever twirling, twirling towards freedom!"

    But as to your topic of discussion, I think the movie should be scaled back, since it wasn't even able to be as "big" as it was while delivering a very good movie.

    He said SOME of them might be false rumors. NEVER listen to Micheal Bay. Remember ''Megatron is not in TF 2'' ???

    Or how about "we're not going to make a live action version of the cartoon"?

    (Bay said something to this effect during the making of the first movie. ROTF ended up being this in many ways, for those who don't understand what I'm saying.)

    Except that he's right, the movie franchise isn't a live-action version of the original, it's a new series with new characters and mythos that's based on all past TF culture.

    But g1's live-action it is not.

    I think what he's trying to say was that Revenge flowed more like a cartoon with it's in inconsistencies and bad story telling almost like a G1 episode for example.

    I've got honestly no idea what the OP is saying. Could somebody translate?

    one of the greatest highlights in ROTF was the cemetery scene with Sam and OP where OP is saddened by cyberton's loss and Sam sympathizing. We definitely need more of that ''sad emotion'' which was expressed on both sides.

    now character development is something which MB mentioned he wants to add in third installment (in the secret BD video) so lets just hope he does so.

    one neat thing (IMO) would be if the movie starts with OP narration and showing cybertron war and how BB lost his voice and how the cube was launched into space..it would be a neat way to have a direct come-around to the first movie.

    He's saying that the next movie should stay on the same level as ROTF, instead of going forwards and getting into trouble with too many robots, not enough plot, too much bad humor, etc. like the last movie.

    Well, Sideways is (unfortunately) dead. So, the movie can't go Sideways, though this would have been his big break.

    Then it would be degrading in quality. It would be going down, not up. Up would be a fantastic plot, amazing effects, truly funny jokes.

    Not only that, but the effects, fights, and robot design were better in ROTF. They should try to up the ante in that respect in TF3.

    :lolol 

    Look, all else aside, Michael Bay has pretty well proven that he's effectively incapable of that with human actors in all his films.

    We're not going to get that.

    As for the designs, I'd prefer to see less skeletal and silver, so each robot is more distinctive. Megatron's redesign was, I think, an excellent example of that. He was far more solid-looking and distinct in RotF. The choice to use Nizzi's Long Haul was also, to me, a very good one. He looked alien and strange, but was clearly a huge, hulking, green robot.

    Bingo!

    No need to elaborate further, that pretty much states what I was hinting.
