    TRANSFORMERS 2007
    Autobots and Decepticons fought for the engraved glasses to seek out the Allspark, it ended up killing Megatron thanks to a human boy.

    REVENGE OF THE FALLEN
    The Fallen wanted to activate the sun harvester to use the sun as Energon source, but he was too weak to do it all by himself.

    DARK OF THE MOON
    Sentinel Prime cut a deal with Decepticons to rebuild Cybertron, it backfired horribly because Cons are not to be trusted.

    AGE OF EXTINCTION
    Greedy corporation and government of Earth attempted to create an army of Transformers, and they unwittingly gave Megatron a new body.

    THE LAST KNIGHT
    Quintessa brought a fractured Cybertron back to Earth to drain its core, she must to be stopped because the Earth is actually Unicron.

    BUMBLEBEE
    The ballad of a girl and a giant robot that transforms in to a VW beetle. They saved the world from an invasion before their inevitable separation.

    Edit: It is all just personal observation on the storyline itself rather than about how good (or bad) these films are.

    Ahem.

    Transformers 2007
    Written by the two hacks who are currently (still) ruining Star Trek, Hollywood dumps out a bastardization of the Transformers IP. For some reason fans defend it and call those critical or skeptical "Geewunners" among other things.

    Revenge of the Fallen
    The Writers Guild of America went on strike and as a result of impatience (among other things) this botched, horribly rushed mistake was shat into theaters. Effectively making the TF film series a joke. There are still some fans who defend this film.

    Dark of the Moon
    Many were confused why Joss Whedon would re-purpose the plot of this crap film into 2012's Avengers. Also they modeled Sentinel Prime's face on Sean Connery before even asking him if he'd voice the character.

    Age of Extinction
    Film based on a toyline blatantly incorporates Chinese propaganda to a rather disturbing extent. This flies over the heads of many astute fans while they shriek about the existence of a certain law instead.

    The Last Knight
    For a few months before this movie came out we had some grown men proudly proclaiming they 'fought like a girl' in solidarity as if they were making some profound and empowering statement.

    Bumblebee
    After more than 10 years of making the same mistakes over and over again Hasbro decided to do the merciful (and smart) thing and put the previous continuity out of its continued and prolonged misery to try and give us a better (at least in comparison to the films preceding it) product that more closely represents what Transformers is. Some fans still cling to the past films.

    Transformers

    Michael Bay directs the first live action Transformers movie featuring Shia LaBeouf and new designs, ruining Transformers forever!

    Revenge of the Fallen

    A hideous monstrosity known as Bayverse Devastator smashes the Pyramid at Giza to pieces using his wrecking balls before getting killed by a human weapon, thus ruining archaeology and Transformers forever!

    Dark of the Moon

    Optimus Prime is forced to Shrexecute both his mentor and his nemesis, and many Decepticons get killed by humans in Chicago, and Cybertron is gone (?), thus ruining Transformers forever!

    Age of Extinction

    This movie replaces the characters and designs people complained about in the previous movies with new characters and designs, ruining Transformers forever in the process!

    The Last Knight

    This movie brings back a bunch of guys from earlier movies and has Cybertron come to Earth...again...and like before it ruins Transformers forever!

    Bumblebee

    Every true fan's least favorite yellow Autobot comes back and makes a new human friend, except this time his body and ears look like Shrek (Shrekformers?), and Blitzwing looks like Starscream, thus ruining Transformers forever!

    The rest of the movies are so inonsistent that they hardly feel connected to the first one. Especially the later ones.

    Eh, good point. Continuity had been endless mangled to death throughout these “films”.

    This thread is painful.

    Is the "still" necessary when preceded by "currently?" :p

    More please! I’d like to see some synopses from people who grew up enjoying this part of the franchise as well. I’ve always enjoyed these movies...yes, even TLK...despite the shortcomings. There’s good and bad in everything...even poop and cotton candy...

    I saw "Abridged" and was expecting something much different... like a kind of "Series" if you will.

    The movie discussion never fails to bring forth strange, strange threads directly from the void.

    This thread still has more purpose and effort than the other new Movie discussion that's currently going on.
