A thought occurred to me -- If we all thought Spider-Man was going to be a trilogy and it ended up getting a fourth film, is it not possible for Transformers to get the same treatment? We all know how greedy the people making movies are as it is and they will milk every dollar they can from Transformers as long as the teets are still warm and giving milk. So do they really HAVE to cram everything we really want to see into the third film? I'm DYING to see some kind of Unicron story but they aren't really building up to anything in particular. In fact, the entire second movie did not really have anything to do with the Transformers' story and could have never been made and we really wouldn't have missed it. The first film doesn't have very much to do with the second as far as story goes other than character development and much cooler scenes. I would have assumed being a trilogy that there would be a series of events that help move the story along but I just don't see much more than eye-candy in number two. There was plenty I could have lived without... the pretender, Devastator, the twins... none of which was very relevant to the overall story. Don't get me wrong, I like the movie... it was fun to watch, but from a plot-perspective, I just don't think it was all that necessary. They didn't do what I would have liked them to do with the Matrix but at least it was included. The space bridge and Soundwave were nice to have but don't really have any meaning in the overall story. The only things that really expanded the story were the little bits and pieces mentioned about Energon and the hatchlings. I find it very hard to believe that our planet is the only source for Energon. I would much rather see more of the big battle scenes and Cybertronian War. Sorry to have rambled on so long... I just don't see much in 2 to tie in to a REALLY EPIC 3 other than Megs and SS surviving and Prime is alive (yay!).
