    Actually I was thinking more along the lines of Dungeons and Dragons sorcery. Necromancy, elemental manipulation, summoning creatures, etc;

    That's honestly not that bad. Not at all, really. It's just different.

    And Madman's Paradise in Season 3. A Decepticon in King Arthur's Court is more like a time travel story.

    Ebay:
    Metroplex transforming into something like the Red Keep from game of Thrones?

    Optimus Prime Transforming into a Griffin? Bumblebee a Pegasus? Prowl and Chimera?

    Bruticus being the combination of 5 siege weapons? catapult, battering ram etc?

    Megatron transforming into Dragon?

    Sign me the fuck up already and take all of my money.

    This might be off-topic, but since not many people like the idea of a Swords and Sorcery Transformers movie, would a Western-themed installment work? I'm thinking something like the Magnificent Seven, except set in rural Kansas beset by Decepticon raiders.

    Id say the transformers plot of tf4 kinda blew the gates wide open on this issue....isn't it said and universally accepted that any sufficiently advanced technology viewed by a sufficiently technically basic observer is indistinguishable from magic....albeit IS MAGIC .

    Example 1....medieval theme...a time rife with magic myths and beasts (the whole plot is designed to shrink the current human condition in the films so everything else is much more advanced)

    Example 2....the transformation of ksi created things plus the demo by tucci( just magical transformation)

    Example 3.... galvatron controls the other drones....mind control(spells)

    Example 4.... How galvatron came to be who he is and not nemesis prime.....possession!(demonic hence his look)

    Alpha Trion being a sorcerer would be so awesome

    Also the fallen and his while character and powers also alludes to this premise of swords and sorcery.....i kinda like it...but only if they approach it from a technology angle not from a spells and sorcery book kinda hoodoo junk plot

    Transformers using tech powered by sorcery would be great. Kind of like Prime's Matrix

    Transformers 5 should have a modern medieval theme

    Not kidding. It should go with the Knight's theme with Optimus. And cut all those stupid jokes, cringworthy dialogues. It's been 4 movies with that.
    I want a more adventure, serious tone for the fifth film.

    I think the Humor Level from AOE and DOTM should stay

    I don't want TF turning into an emo bore fest like DC

    The knight thing was a pretty nice touch in the fourth movie in Optimus. I wouldn't mind seeing it returning. I think they should keep more regular, "modern" themed bots like Crosshairs and Hound as well. You seem to have the same idea.

    The less out of place dialogue the better. Humor is fine as long as it is not dumb or otherwise crude.

    I thought the humor in AOE was fine, for the most part.

    Same here- I found the humor in AOE to be a nice change from the previous movies. Now if they could continue to refine that...woot!

    I was also fine with most of Age of Extinction's humor. My post may have given the impression I was not fine with it. If they keep that sort of humor I will be satisfied.

    The Knight thing will almost certainly be expanded on given that they intentionally kept it vague in AOE.

    As for the humor, AOE nailed humor. So as long as they keep it up I think it's good.
