I always see a lot of people saying "yeah they suck, but they're a guilty pleasure" or something similar when it comes to these movies. But who else genuinely likes them? Maybe I was the right age when the first one came out (19) but it just hit all the right notes with me. I loved the action, the humor, the references to older source material, the set designs, the special effects. I was hardly a newbie to the franchise either. At that point I had seen all the cartoons. Grew up primarily with Beast Wars of course, which got me into G1, didn't watch Beast Machines when it aired but got it when the DVDs first came out, I loved Robots in Disguise. I had watched a lot of Armada and Energon but didn't really care for them so I didn't watch Cybertron. Maybe it was because I didn't care for those previous three shows that the movie looked fantastic in comparison lol. But since the very beginning I've loved these movies. Especially the first two. Of course there are some things I would have done differently with characters or story... but obviously it's not my call lol.
