    TF1 was slightly boring.
    TF2 was ok to watch.
    TF3 was fine but felt slow.
    TF4 was alright but felt slow.
    TF5 was stupid, boring, painful, a waste of time, and can make you fall asleep.

    The movies overall were fun and great to watch (most)

    When TF1 was released, Paris Hilton still had a tv show and the recession hadn't hit yet. I reminisced about this when I saw Bublebee.

    1 and 3 were pretty good, but overall, it was a dumb series. I liked it for what it was, mind-blowing visuals associated with the most insanely idiotic writing, but obviously, I prefer good films like Bumblebee. Glad it's rebooted, but I'll still rewatch Bayverse every once in a while. I was a teen in 2007 so you might say I grew up with Michael Bay's awful movies.

    As much as I love bee.. the effects can't even come close to the first one which is over a decade old.

    I think they're pretty close. They have the same texturing, but the movement has improved since 2007. I know 2007 was bigger and more expensive, but their craft improves even among smaller-budgeted projects.

    The scene where bee and Carly (or whatever) walk in the woods ,was terribly composited.. like original hulk movie leak levels..
    As for the fight animations and transformation creativity.. Bee definitely holds the crown..
    The bay movies were mocapped and lazy, but I wouldn't expect any less from a director who's an animators first.

    It's hard to believe that Revenge of the Fallen will be ten years old later this year. It somehow feels like a short time, and a really long time simultaneously.

    I don't think that's really accurate at all. I didn't notice anything wrong with that scene in Bumblebee, I thought it looked great. And I don't think Bay's movies used motion capture. Maybe on Quintessa and Cogman, but not for the big Transformers.

    I think green screen is hard when something is lifted and dragged away. But I prefer that to CGI models of Shia LaBeouf flying around.

    I just realized that between mikaela taking out frenzy and the arrival to earth scene we never saw Sam put his pants back on. Yet during the bumblebee new car mode scene he's got em on.



    It's been a slow day for me.

    I remembered watching this a lot on DVD. But I didn’t see it in the theaters when it came out. Back then I was 6 and 7 years old. Remembered seeing the commercials on TV a lot when this was coming out. Along with ones for the toy tie-ins for the movie and that Burger King ad. Over the years I stopped watching it. Until a couple years ago back in June 2017. I watched it for the first time on TNT. Basically it was free on demand. And I was like 16 then. For me, I thought the special effects still hold up really well. Even for 2007 standards it looked detailed. There is some of the Steve Jablonsky score I like is the theme for the Autobots, Optimus, Arrival to Earth and the All-Spark. But my all time favorite is What I’ve Done by Linkin Park. That was the first ever song from them that I ever listened to. Heck, I’d even remembered owning Ironhide, Starscream, Ratchet, Bumblebee, Blackout, Megatron, Optimus Prime and Brawl toys.

    Even on the 20th Anniversary Edition DVD of the Transformers: The Movie. Basically the animated movie that came out in 1986. Which I got as a Thanksgiving gift from my grandma when she was living Yakima back then. On the widescreen disc it included the teaser trailer with the Mars Rover which does appear in the film. Along with a minute and a half long featurette for the first film.

    I felt a little nostalgic just writing this.
