Never going to take that word seriously after what Yoda said in TLJ. Besides you endorsed that Barricade avatar at one point. Expendables 2 is currently sitting at 66%. And you care about the RT score? Do you even remember what you said in that Quiet Place thread? I believe Michael Bay (as much as I enjoy his work) was becoming a problem after TLK with no one else being considered to take the directorial helm and 5 movies compared to something like Mission Impossible where Tom Cruise wanted something different. And believe me, Bay has this thing called 'improvisation' going back to Bad Boys where he lets the actors stray from the script. So someone else could elevate the script to a different level. I used to believe that writers were a huge problem until I understood more clearly about the power a director can have when they have the creativity. I'm pretty sure what the Transformers films were lacking was the substance and heart to make us care about the characters which Bay isn't strong for. So Bay clearly has been a problem with overblowing the budget... Hm? No wonder the budget was around $217 million in addition to so many robots, so many visual effects, so many practical effects and so many actors. And yes not since the Ninja Turtles being called aliens is this the most controversial thing ever. Seriously, where's his toy?
