    Wheelie humping Megan Fox's leg, the dude landing face first in MF's crotch and all the masturbation, statutory rape and poop/piss jokes would like to have a word with you.

    Along with all of the very out of place T&A.

    I like the 2007 movie, too, but I like it more as a film that captures the human awe of seeing Transformers arrive in Earth, gain new disguises, hide in plain view, transform, and battle rather than as a film about the Transformers as sentient beings if that makes sense. It still has its moments though here and there.

    Yes, those things were cringy and embarrassing, but there's still gaps between the cringe. Breathing space. The '86 film is just a constant assault of cringe, which individually aren't as bad as leg humping and crotch jokes, but at the constant rate they are delivered it just becomes unbearable.

    Eh, I can easily say that about the issues I have with the Bay sequels.

    Different strokes for different folks I guess.

    Oh I almost forgot "enemy scrotum" and pervert--er, I mean Agent "CRIMINALS ARE HOT" Simmons.

    It really does come down to that, but once again, there are other factors that contribute to me seeing the original film as being worse than Bay's series.
    I have already listed my problems with the '86 film, as well as the hypocrisy of people treating the '86 film as the holy grail of Transformers when it's really no better than the live-action movies, whether it be due to the cringe, the story, the lack of care for the franchise, and/or so forth.

    It's a problem when he's the most interesting bot in the movie

    I'm still trying to figure out who here even said that. I'm certainly not. For me, the Holy Grails of TF writing and characterization are Beast Wars and Animated. G1 had some great stuff for sure, but those two shows, I feel, captured something really special that has yet to be recreated. Bumblebee hints at recapturing some of those qualities, and I want more of that.

    Not necessarily on here, though some certainly act like it, but go to facebook, youtube, and reddit and you'll see it.

    The Last Knight actually made me feel bad at a personal level.

    In regards to the 86 movie, it's worth mentioning that killing off everyone was entirely Hasbro's idea that even the writers spoke up against

    Age of Extinction, but TLK is a close second.

    Oh, I'm under no illusion that TFTM is a good movie.

    TLK, however, got the questionable honor of delivering a Mortal Kombat-style fatality to its own movie franchise and the new trilogy they were setting up in AoE.

    It wasn't just a bad movie.

    Revenge of the Fallen. Easily the worst movie I've ever seen in my life.

    TLK, hands down. AOE set up a lot of potential for a new direction they could take the films, and then TLK nuked it. On top of making plenty of poor decisions in the story department.
    ROTF is next. But I feel ROTF could've been a good movie if you cleaned it up a bit. Primarily, ditching all the toilet humor, you could have a half-way decent movie.
