Okay. Here we go. XD Spoilers abound below! I shan’t hold back so read at your own discretion. ^^
Transformers – Little peeved they killed Jazz, but otherwise liked it.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen – Loved it. Wrote a whole blog post on it.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
I’m…split on this one. Half of it was good (and I really loved the parts that were good) and the other half was almost unforgivably bad (I say almost b/c I think I liked the good stuff enough to drive off total hatred…)
So we’re going to do a back and forth! :D
Loved Carly. Loved her so much and I’m so happy Spike’s (His name is Spike darn it! Screw ‘Sam’ XD) finally with the right girl & her actress was great. Her telling Megatron off? Joy. Total joy because Carly was always that sort of girl to walk straight up to the autobots and give them a piece of her mind.
Hated Whiney Sam. Sam was a little needy in this one. He wasn’t winning any brownie points.
Loved Lennox. Sorry, he was my favorite military guy and he got a few good scenes. XD
Hated Que/Wheeljack – for a while. But that was when I thought he was Kup (easy mistake with the Wreckers in this movie. XD). My rage is gone now b/c his character choices suddenly make sense. XD So…moving on.
Loved Dutch & Dylan. Those two just kept getting better every second. Dutch was a mixture of funny & kick ass that worked very well and he bounced off Simmons amazingly. Dylan was great for various levels from the slightly caring hitting on your girlfriend Boss to the desperate bad guy. Lots of love.
Hated the death toll. This one isn’t so much an issue. I’ve gotten used to it in these films. But still…Starscream and Megatron? Why? Why would you do that? I was quite upset when Starscream when down. And we’ll tack on a hate for Starscream’s spitting problem. *sighs*
LOVED Leonard Nimoy. He should have revived his role as Galvatron, but I’ll take Sentinel Prime any day. Love that man behind a Transformer. His acting was amazing.
Hated that I was wincing at the Autobots. I know these are a far more violent bunch after the last two movies, but when the Decepticons are taking prisoners before the Autobots things are a tad mixed up. As for Optimus killing Megs and Sentinel at the end….eh. I can sort of see it happening with this version of his character. Didn’t mean I liked it, but eh.
Loved Laserbeak & Barricade’s cameo. Laserbeak b/c he was a glorious little smart-ass (like all cassettes should be) and Barricade just b/c he was there. <3 Barricade.
Hated wondering where the other freaking Autobots were ! I mean, what happened to Arcee and Jolt and the guys from the second movie? They couldn’t even get a cameo drive by?
Loved Bumblebee. He needed more screen time. He’s also still my favorite Transformer from this franchise and probably always will be.
So there you have it. Overall I’ll say I liked it, but there was quite a bit to be disappointed with. Enough good overweighted the bad though to make me be too upset with it. Overall it felt like the folks behind it said “Screw it, let’s have so fun.” and went with it. I can work with that. It’s Transformers.
