Good point, lol. Yeah again I don't see Bay as any visionary figure in the franchise.

Man, I'd MUCH prefer an echo chamber where everyone just says the same things over and over to a sea of nodding. That sounds like an awesome model for a Discussion Forum.

I remember those times I'd race home after school to watch my beloved cartoon and every single day I'd have the same stunned reaction. "What? NO dog humping? AGAIN!?" I'm glad he could revolutionize that aspect in particular



But seriously, as far as the original question...these Geewun-loving "Bay-haters" that you may be tired of having around? Yeah, a lot of these folks are the ones who stuck around and built this community while carrying a torch for their beloved plastic robot men.

Is the hate extreme? Sometimes, of course. If you don't like the movie he made, it's not like he kicked your door down and broke all of your old toys and DVDs.

Is the hate warranted? To some extent. The guy makes dumb movies. Hell, he might in fact make the dumbest movies. I mean that objectively. One of our long time favorite brands was made into 3 of the most ridiculous big budget films in recent memory. I used to constantly imagine what it would be like to see a real car Transform into a giant mechanical warrior. Not once did this fantasy involve this mechanical warrior being illiterate with a giant gold tooth.

That said, I adore the films. They are gloriously insane. They are a total mess and every frame look like a billion dollars was tossed up on screen and straight into my skull in the most excessive and often incoherent way possible. They are not the movies I always wanted, but I saw a cranky robot fart out a parachute and I would not trade that for the world. I'm serious.

Would the movies have been better by someone else? Very likely. But Bay knows how to do the kind of crazy that tons of people go to see opening weekend. Financially, he was a fantastic choice. Artistically, maybe not so much, but I'm glad that money helped keep my toys chugging along these past few years.

I got a better idea.

Let's walk away from the computer. Pick up your favorite Transformer toy. Mess with it for a bit. Then go watch/read your favorite piece of Transformers fiction.

Then go for a long walk and come back.........

I think this is what frustrates people about Hollywood in general. Artistic merit is at the mercy of the almighty dollar, heh.

But I think the question for people is, why couldn't the same have been done with better written movies?
