    3. DOTM


    BIG GAP HERE


    4. ROTF

    Can someone explain why most people think TF07 is better (even if slightly) than Bumblebee?

    For me, it's probaly nostalgia - seeing Blackout transform for the first time on the big screen etc. I really wanted to put Bumblebee at #1 (tied with TF07) but I thought that it would be kind of weak having a tie. It's probably more of a 1a and 1b type of thing for me. Who knows? I might change my mind after watching Bumblebee again (which I am definitely going to do).

    Had some time to think about it on the drive back, my ranking would be:

    1. TF2007
    2. DOTM
    3. Bumblebee
    4. ROTF
    5. AOE
    6. TLK

    This movie had heart, but comparing the first time I saw this one to the first time I saw the first one and Dark of the Moon... well the latter two just had a "punch" to them and an "event" feel that this movie didn't. The nostalgia of seeing Transformers on the big screen for the first time in 2007, and then the plot twists and epic scale of the third installment, both with Jablonsky's immersive score - those were just bigger and more amazing experiences to me. Bumblebee was very well done and again full of heart and soul, but its plot was extremely simple and overall felt like a cartoon brought to life (not a bad thing but just not as impactful).

    When Shatter was activating the transmitter and the message said "Found Bumblebee. Send Army." it was a bit of an eye roll after the uber-cool Decepticon invasions in DOTM.

    I don't think Bee is the worst, but it's certainly not the best either.

    As a threat; the Decepticons were a big deal back then compared to the sequels and the Allspark being the films plot device wasn't as bothering. It used a fromula that most of us were use to, the other 4 times felt like a copy.

    Bumblebee
    The Last Knight
    Age of Extinction
    Transformers: The Movie
    Transformers (2007)
    Dark of the Moon
    Revenge of the Fallen

    (Keep in mind this is a subjective list, based on my own personal enjoyment. This isn't to say this is the order of quality, although I would argue Bumblebee is the most well-made.)

    The Last Knight

    Subject to change. Really hard to rank after seeing a movie only once. Bumblebee could stay or dip to third. Either way though, it was the most coherent and well done film.
