To be fair, I'm excited NOW. I wasn't in the beginning. In fact, I had ZERO desire to go sit in a theater and see it. TLK left such a bad taste in my mouth that I didn't want to relive it. After seeing the trailers and reading Mr. Knight's love letter to the series and the fans, then and only then, did the outlook have any kind of rosiness to it. I can't blame him for not being excited. I know plenty of fans who aren't excited and are sitting it out as a form of protest. I think it's pointless, really, but I can certainly see why they're negative. At times, the Bayverse has exceeded at doing one thing professionally and perfectly and that's stupidity. Those films are excellent at being utterly STUPID. Flashy, visually dizzying and incredibly stupid. Bumblebee, for once, seems to have heart and intelligence behind all of the flashy visuals. That's what giving me hope, but for some, that's not enough after all this time. I don't blame them, either. It's been over a decade, now and until now, nothing's looked like it was going to change.
