    Yes, it's totally better that Bay filled that time with stuff like Bumblebee "lubricating" all over Simmons, ogling Megan Fox with the camera and filling dead time with masturbation jokes instead.

    Don't even get me started on movies 2-4...

    Not to mention Bay made Prime kill a human. If you had to choose the only Transformer that shouldn't kill a human, it would be Prime and Bay took that moment to twist a character's philosophy. That's so much worse than making the bad guys shoot people on screen and burst into a clear goop.

    Agree so much.

    ''I have sworn to never kill humans... but when I find out who's behind this, he's going to die'' is NOT something Optimus f'n Prime should be saying.

    So I finally saw this last night and I'm gonna be honest. While it's good as a prequel and a movie. It's pretty much a lovechild of the Iron Giant & the Shape of Water.

    Underwater scenes=/= Shape of Water.

    Seriously, people seeing a romance with Bee and Charlie are seeing what they want to see.

    He would after his already endangered species is being driven to extinction by those he sacrificed everything, including himself, to protect.

    A hero without flaw is nothing but a stereotype, and the fact that Optimus can be broken is something that this franchise needed to do to flesh him out more.

    That's... messed up, dude. *smh* That says a lot about you. You remind me of the crazy lady who wrote an entire article about how Bumblebee was super sexualized and pretty much everyone in the comments called her on the carpet for it.

    C'mon. Be better than that.

    That scene should become the textbook example of b*stardizing a character.


    Ya, I don't see how a film about a mute girl falling for a fishman is anything like bumblebee.

    I disagree. ''You'll never stop at one'' is what he said to Megatron in the first movie and for him to then do such a thing is a complete misunderstanding of the character.

    There are plenty of ways to keep a hero fresh without resorting to what they stand against.

    1) That was the second film, not the first.
    2) That's cool and all, but that was before humanity turned on them entirely.
    3) You cant have 5+ movies of Optimus just being the same. Otherwise, you get Tf: Prime Optimus (its a great series, but the problem that a lot of people have is that Optimus was kind of stale). After a while, it gets tiresome. AoE took a huge risk and asked, "Optimus is all heroic, but realistically speaking, does he have breaking point? What is it? How much can he take before he has had enough" and "Can he get back up and come back from that?" We all have a breaking point, but not everyone can recover from it. By the end of AoE we saw that despite everything, Optimus did come out of the dark place he was in.

    Well in that case sounds to me like you're a little confused as to whether friendship=romance, and sorry to break it to you but it does not.
    And please don't get me started on the whole guy friend+ girl friend= automatic romance.

    For some reason, I didn't know that Bumblebee had lost his memory for most of the movie until the part towards the end when he regained his memory. I had thought he was just trying to hide the entire movie vs. he had lost his memory.

    My bad. I was mixing that up with his response to Megatron's ''Humans don't deserve to live'' line.

    At risk of straying off topic and being warned, I'll just say agree to disagree.

    The ‘ell? o_O 

    I’m not confused, all I was saying was the Bumblebee is nothing like SoW. And my point was that girl/fish romance is nothing like bumblebee and charlie’s friendship.

    Sorry but I think your wording confused me on your stance.
