    (Okay, here's a new, more constructive topic!)

    Personally, I would like to see less "shaky-cam".

    More bots, more bot dialogue and more of Sam's parents. Good thing about it is we should be getting all 3.

    More robots interacting with each other,more explosions and a bit less of the lame humor that was in the first one.

    More Optimus Prime kicking ass (looks like I'll be getting this one).
    More robot to robot interaction.
    Less hackers...

    Less wasted time: There are a number of shots in the first film that are pure filler - the camera following the large, distressed cousin out of the house and subsequently tackled into the pool is the worst example.

    Less gags for cheap laughs.

    More dimension in character development for the leads.

    More talking bots with better lines.

    ...Even cynics dream from time to time.

    More robots, fewer "human scenes".

    Also, improved pacing. I've been wanting to rewatch TF1, but after seeing it a number of times, it's really hard to suffer through all of the people scenes.

    More robot to robot fighting, less of the irritating shaky cam, less of the regular humans, and more of Mikayla with no clothes on.....:drool:

    On the less side I'd like to see less shaky cam, gritty cam, too close cam, and too dark dark cam that keep shots from being all they could be. A bit less on the humor as well, not that they can't have laughs in the film just they don't need to go as far for those laughs.

    On the more side I'd like for the Decepticons to kick more ass. I want that feeling of they could win even though I know it's a Hollywood so the good guys have to win but it would be nice if there wasn't the feeling of a forgone conclusion. I'd also love more character to the robots, a reason to care about the robots instead of feeling like they were just movie monsters or the character in name only.

    Wouldn't mind feeling more welcome as an old fan, but perhaps with more personality to the robots that would come naturally.

    More bots.
    More fighting between bots.
    WAY less military who think they can kick bots' butts.

    I think we're almost all on the same page with this stuff.

    Less shaky-cam...and if the trailers are any indication, we may get it. The big field-fight looks pretty solid, so does the China-chase.

    More interaction among the Transformers. More dialogue, more emotion, more characterization.

    Less ability of humans to successfully fight the Decepticons on almost equal footing.

    I guess we want it more like any of the cartoons or comics, pretty much.

    I did find some of the shaky camera moments to be too much sometimes and it made watching it difficult. I wanted to see more Decepticons talking along with the fights. Instead they just fired and fought with no reason but to be movie monsters like Ash from Carolina said. I'm hoping that they speak more during fights and not just shoot.

    agreed, less shaky cam.
    agreed, more decepticon characterization, exposition, or even PURPOSE

    I'm probably alone on this, but
    disagree...I'm actually okay with the military being able to fight, if not on equal footing with the cybertronians, at least on the level of the Scorponok fight from 2007 (e.g. taking a while and having to throw everything they've got at one decepticon to damage it)

    YES! Besides, the military is being shown as too powerful. We'd get slagged if this was real.

    Yes more of Optimus kicking @ double $ and Sam's parents. But I want there to be less government processes/hacking too like someone else said.
