    You'll get no argument from me that it would be nice if Hollywood thought about more than just a quick buck today. I know they need profits to keep making films but it would be nice if they thought a bit more about things other than profits or Oscar bait toward the end of the year.

    I also agree that thought needs to be put into a reboot of any sort. For all the good reboots you also have bad reboots that didn't seem to be thought out like the reboot for the V television show.

    I kind of hope the films take a few summers off so they can decide which direction they want to go with the films next. It feels like some films are a bit too quick to jump on a sequel and the film suffers for it.

    Agreed.

    That "sequelitis" thing was even part of what screwed up Revenge of The Fallen if you think about it, and I think I speak for all when I say that no one would want ANOTHER Revenge of the Fallen to open a rebooted series.

    ROTF only faulted in writing because of the writers strike, they had to rush production or if they delayed the movie,
    everyone working on ROTF would be out of a job.

    I knew about that as well, but I had forgotten that there would be consequences if they had delayed the movie.

    I've said it before, I'll say it again:
    The first movie didn't have money
    The second movie didn't have time
    This movie has no excuses

    The people that still say ROTF is "TEH WOARST MOVY EVAR!!!1" have clearly
    forgotten about Battlefield Earth...

    ROTF:
    Rushed writing from a story made from scratch.
    Rushed production.
    Improvised humor.

    $836,297,228 at box office.
    $200,000,000 Budget.

    Battlefield Earth:
    Based on a novel.
    Calm paced Production.
    No humor.

    $29,725,663 at box office.
    $75,000,000 Budget.

    In short, a truly bad movie is one with no excuses.

    (Correct me if i'm wrong about BFE's production, i'm too lazy.)

    All because he has brought back Shockwave and Soundwave, supposedly Wheeljack and "Mirage" in action.

    In ROTF, most of the complaint was about Devastator looking butt ugly compared to G1. Even my little nephew says he loves the G1 Devastator more than the ROTF version.

    I started getting in to tf after I saw the first TF movie. Im tired of people whining about stuff and complaining. People continously whine about symbiotes in spider-man video games, people whine about TFs not resembling their G1 counterparts (I don't think it would transition well in the live action-verse from what Ive seen from G1 from Wikipedia, TFwiki, etc.)

    I hate how people must whine about something,

    Even if they get what they want, they still will whine about something else!

    That's the dumbest complaint I ever heard in my life.

    ROTF surely had a lot of problems, but ROTF-Devastator's "uglyness" is NOT one of them.

    Heh, got back to TF for some slightly dumb reasons. I didn't like both bayformer films and I ain't complaining about how it raped my childhood because, well, the original still exists. Not to mention, the classics line smoke the movie versions anyday, so I really can't complain. I have to admit that if it wasn't for Bay, there wouldn't had been some interest re-vitalized for TF.

    This. I honestly have never watched a G1 episode in my life. I would never have known Transformers as well as I do now if Bay hadn't turned the cartoons into a series of badass robots punching, shooting, and fly-kicking the shi* out of each other.

    Really? Darn, well I thought Devastator was epic, just underused.

    It was difficult putting that character together so they had to kill him quick in them movie.:( 

    All he needed was to be much faster, the ability to run, walk on his two feet(like the concept arts) and stomp over tanks and soilders and blast tons of firepower..yes, that would have been nice.

    And instead of defeating the Fallen at the end, just switch him with Devastator, the bigger threat to egypt. win...:rock

    You know, i got introduced to Transformers when i was 12 back in 2007. So when there is a reboot in the future with different designs and stuff i could say
    "[Insert Director's name] ruined my childhood"! but i wont.

    So this cycle is just going to keep on going and going and going and going.
