    you do realise that different characters have different intellegent levels. it wasnt dropkick shatter and blitzwing that won the war. It was the leaders of soundwave shockwave starscream and megatron that are much more powerful than any of the decepticons or bee that won the war.

    while i agree his great we dont want a repeat of aoe and tlk where it was just a director directing something for a paycheck. We need to make sure that he is fully on board or it will be ruined.

    I had an interesting thought while watching Bumblebee. What if down the road, Charlie and Memo hooked up and had a kid, and said kid was Leo Spitz? You know, Sam Witwicky\'s roommate in college!

    I’m surprised he needed to explain this. The movie was all about Charlie learning to love and let go, and that moving on wasn’t the same as forgetting about someone, and Bumblebee remembering his past, and staying true to the mission he took. Having them part, while sad, would have severely hampered their stories. If they meet up again one day, later on in life, great. But they spent the whole movie coming to terms with themselves and growing to become independent, them splitting up was the final step in achieving that and it was perfect.

    I did really like Charlie, though. I hope whatever main human comes next, they’re as likeable and genuine as her.

    No, no, no, no, no, no, leave, no, no, no, no, no, no, no...

    She was a likeable character all around, and she really seemed more connected than Shia ever could. I wouldn't mind seeing John Cena return either.

    Besides, Paramount actually commented on and approved the HISHE episode.. so yeah, jump back in the car!

    TeeHee-ous!!! :D 
    That's actually not a bad idea. Plus it's a better story than the actual movie.

    Sequel, Charly at an older age died giving birth.
    The now single dad takes care of his son best way he knows how, the son grows up living and working on an oil platform.

    The Son is Spike, who gets into contact with Bumblebee and gecomes his best human friend.

    Bumblebee was always checking up on Charly to see if she's safe, but kept an eye on Spike ever since her death. As an unknowingly guardian.

    Prime, seeing this behavior clisely gets inspired by this to save/protect this race of humans.

    while a good way to getting to the g1 scenario, doesn't exactly have anything to do with her coming back :p

    OMG. That’s too awesome for words!!!!

    I agree. The Cybertron stuff was exciting, but after that it was all humdrum. The problem with this movie, it was safe. It was like they were walking on egg shells because they were afraid the fan base would get mad.

    If someone really wanted to shoehorn Charlie back in anytime in the Beeverse, Starscreams null rays or a similar mechanic could be used on Bumblebee, revealing Charlie as a target/weak point/source of coincidental mcguffin any point in the future, forcing the current autobots to try to reach her before the decepticons or whatever threat does. Not as the focus to a film, but just a way to bring her back in

    How is two characters hooking up and producing quite possibly the worst and most irrelevant human in Transformers even a story, let alone “better” than the actual movie?

    Probably because the last movie was such a complete disaster they wanted to show people that, hey, TF movies don’t have to be utter shit. You say “safe” as if there’s anything at all wrong with that.

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, TF fans have no idea what makes a good movie.
