    thanks for sharing, i agree the films do allot of stuff right & much of it is subtle & requires extra viewings to fully grasp...i do think the writer's strike & dotm being gutted hurt this franchise longterm & as of now the only film id recommend to a non-hardcore filmverse fan is the first film which is on the terminator 2, jurassic park, raiders of the lost ark level of classic tent-pole action flicks

    That one again? It's the third time I've seen it on these forums. :p 

    It does has a few good points though, but I think it took it too far to say that Megatron was in the movie "Duel" from a while back. :p

    Yeah I agree that some of his theories are too far-fetched but it's still an interesting read as an alternative explanation of the movies.

    I have to wonder what that person thinks given that came into existence before TLK happened, which was the breaking point for so many people who even tolerated AoE.

    Oh is this that 300-page thesis on the first 3 Bayverse movies positing it's a satire of American excess and that the Autobots are equally as bad as the Decepticons and whatnot? That was quite a read.

    I would be genuinely curious to see a similar analysis for AoE and TLK by the same person. It's not that I have not seen some great analysis of those movies, because I certainly have. It is just that an analysis by such a person would certainly be extremely interesting and well thought out.

    I rarely pull the 'tl;dr' card, but nearly 500 pages? F that noise.

    You know, at five hundred pages, I’d be willing to bet this mad person has written more ABOUT the movies than was written FOR them.

    Dwelve is a half-dwarf, half-elvish?

    Edit: gonna try and read this and maybe respond after a while but feels already, out the gate, to be a bit... I dunno. Appreciate the effort tho.

    This isn’t an essay, it’s a god damn college text book! Nice try though.

    I would have loved to give this a read through, but I needed to subscribe to the website in order to read it, and...I really don't feel comfortable making accounts on websites I don't really know anything about.

    Even if it did turn out to be a bunch of nonsense, i'm sure it would have still been a fun read.

    This seems like quite the daring claim. Are we talking "enjoyable in an intellectually stimulating way" fun? Or "oh my god, this is a car wreck that was born out of a bunch of drivers not paying attention because they were staring at another car wreck?" fun?

    Oh! The later for sure! I'm always up for reading or listening to Transformers theories, regardless of how outlandish they are.

    Exactly the same situation, on this forum aren't there threads where something like this is done to the screen with the given text?
    Besides this for me was the discovery of this source Custom Expository Essay Writing Service - Edusson.com from where you can buy an expository essay or any other type of writing, I was very glad to find this out because I am the person who hates writing and this would be very hard for me, and now basically on any stuff I can make my writing very simple.

    The Bay movies are a goldmine of interesting and topical (especially in our current decade) sci-fi plot ideas. The execution sadly lacks though.
