Do you guys blame the writers strike for the poor perfomance of rotf ?
Poor reception? Sure. Poor performance? No. It made bank at the box office.
The writers' strike definitely wasn't the Quilty though.
But somehow affect the script.
Then what's DOTM, AOE and TLK's excuse?
Ehren Kruger joining is the starting point of ruining the franchise.
Actually the starting point of ruining the franchise was way back in 1984.
The writer's strike affected the quality of RotF, but mainly in that the creators involved couldn't either compensate for it or admit defeat and delay production until they got a script (I'm not sure if they were even allowed to do the latter).
Actually, it was the Big Bang billions of years ago, because that resulted in the universe that would eventually be home to the species who created Transformers for profit, thus ruining Transformers forever!
Seriously speaking, if anything I think RotF (and some of the other films as well), while not perfect or flawless, were actually closer to being best case scenarios rather than worst case scenarios as final products.
Bay says on the commentary track they only had half the script when the strike hit but the studio wouldn't let them delay so they just had to shoot scenes and write a story around them.
I dont blame the writers or bay for that
This subject has been brought nearly 4 billion times. And we know the answer, no matter what script bay got, he cant tell a story!
Woah woah there bud bay can tell a story hes told stories that people love bad boys and his latest movie that he did about the attack on septmeber 11 people loved that movie it was his most mature movie ever. So if I were you I'd look at his track record sorry if I'm coming a bit hostile I'm just letting you know.
So that answers that question. Man, the studio messed that one up.
noone watches bad boys for the cliche buddy cop story! We watch for Lawrence and Smith to tell jokes between car chases!
I've always felt the biggest problems with the writing in the movies is that they clearly have too many ideas/subplots but don't really flesh out one really good idea instead, choosing to do everything only to result in a half-baked overstuffed plot.
I mean you can insult bay but if you insult him in Instagram hes gonna reply back with a short and simple response that will make you just feel like fool one guy did it and bay responded and everybody was roasting the guy that got burned by bay with a simple response
Friendly reminder to knock off off-topic insults.
When you see other examples of Orci and Kurtzman's writing, you realize the strike is nothing more than a well timed excuse.
That's pretty spot on. Each movie could have been expanded into a miniseries or full season.
At least rotf didn't feature their strange obsession with magic blood they seemed to have at the time.
