DOTM is way more awesome now

Thanks to Netflix, im watching season 2 of G1, um "megatons master plan" parts 1&2 are awesome! Bay couldn't have gone more G1 with the story line of DOTM, and I appreciate the movie so much more now. I'm pretty sure there were a number of lines copied verbatim from the episode to the movie.

I knew that DOTM was all about the Ultimate Doom,but never realized these other episodes. Too cool.

Meh. It isn't a G1 homage until someone builds a giant purple gryphon.

... That was a joke.

Its been said before now... also sorry to ruin this for you but Sentinel Prime was the one with the idea of saving Cybertron. Megatron's plan was only to rule Cybertron believing that Sentinel Prime would let him - watch the movie again. Sentinel states he is only working with Megatron to save his planet. Sentinel is the one who developed the pillars. Sentinel is the one who controls the pillars. Sentinel is the one who comes close to killing Optimus. Megatron does nothing in the film other than die and stop Sentinel Prime from killing Optimus. Also, despite people saying this hundreds of times, people fail to realise... Bay did not write the script for the movies - Ehren Kruger wrote the script, you should be thanking him for the refrences to G1.

Bay only has small influences over the characters and actors chosen - this is why we had Sams parents, the Twins, Deep wang. All of these characters were suggested by Bay and Bay alone - they contribute nothing to the story and were added as an after thought. For example, Deep Wang filled the place of Sam's boss - who was originally going to be the one to be killed and reveal the secret of the moon landing to Sam.

Not entirely sure why a bad story being the same as another story makes it any better.

Oh yes... there was a LOT of G1 goodness in the movie- uncomfertaly so for many people.

All things considered, I'll just watch the Ultimate Doom instead. Less fast-forwarding though useless human scenes.

And no Deep Wang.

Despite those G1 story plot references......... I think the reason why critics criticize DOTM's story is because of the continuity errors and the comedy.....
