    Are you talking about the final Optimus, Sentinel, Megatron battle? Because I loved everything leading up to it.

    I personally don't care for the Bay movies. Crude humor with no wit, IMO bad characterization(robots and humans), convoluted plots, etc. That being said at first they did give the franchise good exposure but with the failure of TLK, I feel they may have done more harm than good. I did find BB to be quite enjoyable.

    I personally hate the movies overall. They were going out of the realm of realism (even for transformers) in a live action movie. Each movie was more insane and stupid than the last, a world like that would not function. Not to mention the characters were senselessly destroyed and lacked any characterization, save for some moments. I am glad they rebooted the series...but Bumblebee? Come on! We already have enough of Bumblebee.

    Still, my favorite and I will say the best iteration of the franchise. I love the world and the new discoveries made of each sequel. These have my favorite incarnations of the characters.

    There are a lot of bits and clips present in the movies that I genuinely enjoy on repeated rewatch, I usually skip through the bad parts but that is not exclusive to just the Transformers movies

    Same here. After I started collecting movie toys I stopped collecting all other lines.

    Whether you guys like them or not, the constant human focus kept annoying me.

    I don't hate the movies but only the directions in TLK.

    Hating takes a lot of effort. I don't hate any of the films despite how bad objectively they are, in-fact I enjoy occasionally checking them out with friends when they're on, even if I spend most of the time laughing and pointing out things. :lol

    I've said it before... the Bay TF movies are a guilty pleasure. It may feel good at the time, for a brief moment, but you know it's only because you didn't have a better option at the time. Afterwards you feel dirty, and want to scrub the depravity off with a steel brush in the shower. You know it's terrible, but did it anyway.

    I actually had to re-edit a "clean" version for my nephew, years ago, for that 1st movie. He's a GenZer, and had no interest in seeing the 2nd movie, because the plot was craptastic. Even at a young age, he had standards for good storytelling.

    I don't really hate, as hate is adjacent to love.
    I'm really quite indifferent to them -- and that's the opposite of love, not hate.
