    Okay, we're all gearing up for Transformers 4. I personally think Michael Bay's Transformers movies are pretty bad, for many reasons. Please tell me if you think the same, and list your reasons. List as many possible.[​IMG]

    Why don't you go first? You're starting a discussion, promote it by initiating it.

    "Bad" is such a loaded term. Your definition of bad might not be mine, or others.

    Translation: I think they're bad, post if you agree with me and state reasons supporting my opinion.

    No.

    People are just extremely jaded nowadays. The movies might have some bad aspects, but they are far from horrible.

    Pootie Tang is a horrible movie.

    btw, first posting and this is the result? Smells like an alt ID to me...

    wow, you just joined the forum to get this off your chest?

    No they are not terrible. They're just not very good even if they try so hard to be good. They almost try too hard.

    Welcome to the forums

    Bay movies are not bad, but what I miss is the POV of the Transformers themselves rather than the humans. Hollywood tends to be human-centered, and hates machines.

    The Bay movies are far from perfect but they are fun to watch, I enjoy them more than I should. The movies aren't horrible but they aren't the best either because they have quite a few errors and mistakes and conflicting plots, but I loved them.
