    This. I only noticed Ironhide last week. and I got a lot of characters mixed up in the Forrest battle, the first few times I watched it.

    Here's the thing. As a movie critic one has to look at these films as if they knew nothing of the subject matter. The first film excelled at showing fans and the average movie goer alike who and what Transformers were.

    The second movie being a victim of the writers strike made for a dull film with explosions

    Unfortunately since this is a trilogy and Revenge of the Fallen existed Dark of the Moon took a hit in many of the same places. No character development, and a transparent plot line.

    Actually, Incepticon said he was attacking BluRayHiDef not defending.

    I really don't see how that's possible. The characters are very well-defined in that sequence.

    Really? And where is that? Where exactly is my post that I said I was attacking BluRayDef? You can't find it because it doesn't exist. The only post I can find is the one where I explained why I gave the answer that I did to his trolling little comment about people who don't like the movie designs supposedly must just wanting unrealistic G1 on the screen instead. I gave the kid an articulate answer to his original question about why these movies get so much negative criticism, and his sole response was that tired old shot about G1 that's become notoriously predictable with ignorant Bayformer fans trying to wrap their heads around how & why people can't or don't like what they like. I didn't pull the debate pin in this thread - BluRayDef did with that comment.

    I wasn't trolling. I can't stand when people toss words around without knowing what they mean. Trolling is when someone says something with the intention of offending/ upsetting other people. I had no intention of offending/ upsetting anyone when I said what I said. Perhaps you may disagree with it and may be offended/ upset, but that was not my intention.

    The thing I dislike about the designs isn't ''Who's leg is that?!?'' it's the colours. I'm fine with Ratchet being green and whatnot, just that characters would be more distinctive if they weren't all mostly grey, black etc.
    In G1: (Heeeeeeeere we go. >:L)
    Megatron - White
    Starscream - Red
    Soundwave - Blue
    In movies:
    Megatron - Gray
    Starscream - Gray
    Soundwave - Gray
    I can't tell even these amazing and vast designs apart!

    I've obviously lost track of this thread. I think instead of trying to sort this out I'm going to attempt to stop offending people by never coming back to this thread.

    I just do not understand why everything is so not like ROTF???
    Maybe a couple of moments was unpleasant, but for me they do not spoil the admiration from the film!

    Apparently not, if people are saying they've never even noticed Ironhide fighting Demolisher.

    EDIT: I just watched that scene, and yea, I could sort of make Ironhide out. If you're not paying attention, he blends in with the other random robot parts. I saw him jump off Demolisher before he crashed.

    Yeah that's the one thing I haven't like about the films is that (with some exceptions of course) most of the major depticons have been gray. However, Hasbro has been very kind in some of their repaints.

    I love movies in general so I end up reading a lot of things about movies. Sadly there are segments of our society that are over obsessed with finding racism, sexism, pro war messages, anti war messages, political messages or something else to rally against.

    Nice guy Peter Jackson gets accused of being a racist because something was supposed to be racist about the bad guys, ouch and some of the things that were said about King Kong because a giant gorilla can't just be a gaint gorilla.

    Apperantly everything George Lucas does that doesn't have a British or Mid-Western accent is racist and Lucas meant for it to be that way.

    Because the Bayformer films misuse charecter development and ends in anti-climatic manors.

    I never noticed Ironhide there! Never!

    I also for the life of me have no fucking idea what's happening in the Bee VS Drill Mc JUmpy in ROTF. Seriously I watched that fight 3 times now and I still have no idea who is hitting who andwhat's going on.

    My friend thought that Optimus killed Megatron in the forest fight when he killed Grindor.

    My dad couldn't tell Optimus and Sentinel apart in their battle in DOTM.

    My dad also had no idea how Shockwave got killed and asked me "What happened to the one eyed guy" and thought that Optimus killed a random drone with his robo-pimp-knuckle.

    And list goes on...
