Jennifer is now a proud member of the VIPers - the Melanie's Muses Spotlight Feature Team!
These movies have five parts and one prequel, though pretty much after the third movie it just gets like "why?", and they should of stopped but that’s just my opinion. "Transformers". When they first announced it I was like man I definitely can’t wait to see it, and honestly no movie will ever beat the first. You all know the story. Boy buys car, turns out it’s a autobot from a different planet out to protect our world from the decepticons. I know, craziness but if you know me by know that’s what I like. These movies made from cartoons and kids toys are not to be missed though. Like I said I’d probably stop at the third one, skipping the fourth, fifth, and prequel. Also after the second movie the characters start to change, and I’m definitely against when that happens. Add new characters, fine but at least keep the old ones as well. Bumblebee also changes drivers, which for me was a no go even though I’m not a huge Shia LaBeouf fan.
Dave - Dave Christy loves horror, music, documentaries and more. He is also the co-runner of several fan based groups including Morningstars (THE Lucifer fan group also run by Melanie), and now is a member of the VIPers Spotlight Lounge team for Melanie's Muses. Other than "In The Spotlight" Features -check out his "31 Days Of Halloween Movies"
“Transformers” may be more than meets the eye but if I’m being honest I never got into the animated series. It was 1984. I was the right age but never really got into it. I think I watched in passing but was never really obsessed. The first “Transformers” movie was actually in 1986 with an animated feature.
Many years later, with the advancement of movie technology, live action films began production. If Marvel and DC can bring larger than life characters to the big screen, why not add cars that change into giant robots? Or is it a robot that can change into a car? The timing was right as the CGI effects were getting better. You don’t want the fakeness of the look to suspend your belief and remove you from the action
. Anyway, as I watched this first feature in theaters, I was a couple rows behind one of biggest fanboys and I could see him completely geeking out, rocking in his chair. Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox led the cast in the feature. Megan would only stick around for one more in the series while Shia did 2 more. Like most film series, casts and quality change. I hear a lot of flack and distaste, mostly starting with the 2nd one “Revenge of the Fallen”. But you know how fans and people in general can get. They like to have something to complain about. I held on for “Dark of the Moon” and even tried out the new lead characters in “Age of Extinction”. That’s when I started losing interest in the features. Never bothered seeing “The Last Knight” or the “Bumblebee” solo movie. Another outing is setting its sights on a 2023 release. So I guess we’ll see if it recaptures the magic for me.
