I can never decide which of the bayformer movies I like best; I am constantly deciding that I hate DotM and RotF is actually better in retrospective, but then I flip flop and like the first one or AoE and hate the rest. They're all chock full of stupid shit, but they're also full of goodies, and each one's goodies are good for different reasons. Transformers 1- Mission City/ Los Angeles: pretty sweet battle, though the transformers are often obscured by shaky cam and human-level perspective shots. It's still very cool and makes them look very powerful. The Decepticons are at their most menacing in this one. RotF- kind of a classic G1, guerilla war in the desert, but the Cons are inconsistent and so is the geography DotM- rewatched it last night and I (currently) think this has the best final battle in all 4. Everything about it is awesome, its huge, its the first movie on steroids. Remember Starscream vs. The raptor jets in the first one? Well here he does it again with NEST and the action is glorious. The geography had vastly improved over RotF as well. Cool battle tactics, cool scenery, amazing visual effects. The CGI was truly at its peak in DOTM. AoE: for awhile I liked it, but its ridiculously cartoony in both its effects and script. Its really kind of terrible, but it's more fun than RotF.
