    It'd be cool if they made Galvatron appear and fight Megatron in the next film. Without any explanation whatsoever as to why they're two separate characters. A lot of things were never really explained in the movies anyway.
    I know the popular theory or belief is that Galvatron turned back into Megatron in TF5. As that's the most logical explanation. But there's sort of never really been any official word on that.
    If they run out of cool ideas, just make Galvatron reappear as a separate character and viola instant story!

    I don't know if I'll see TF6. If there is one. Not unless Hasbo and Paramount can get someone who can write a good script.

    Should have done the crossover with GI Joe. I mean that’s the only way to save both franchises. As standalones nobody’s interested anymore. But crossing them… people would go “Okay you got my attention.”

    Don’t reboot before doing a crossover. That would take a looong time. Do the crossover now using the current TF’s and the current Joes. Do the cheap thing like DC cutting corners with Justice League. It’s cheap but that’s what you do if you want the “Avengers money” without spending at least a full decade setting the whole universe up.

    But oh wait! They didn’t leave hints and clues and easter eggs in both TF and Joe films to make a crossover even possible at this point! Bummer.

    It took a room full of all-star writers to come up with The Last Knight...

    Then clearly they were not that All- Star. I have read fan fiction was was better than what we got.

    The writers need to be fans. That's what we got from the three guys for the first four films.

    The writers room were a bunch of people who learned about the mythos and the result was a film that felt like what people assumed a Transformers film was, but wasn't. The Last Knight felt like an imitation and I think that was purely done to the writers.

    Get a writer or two in the industry that are actually fans of the franchise and I'm sure we'll get another great film.

    The problem was with the overblown robot roster, and not so much the accuracy or inaccuracy to the mythos.

    TF1 was just it's own thing. It couldn't be farther from G1. Everything's re-imagined. But it worked because it was compact. It was an "accidental" success in a way because they were testing the waters and so they played the conservative approach. It was their first movie after all. That "conservative" formula happened to work.

    After that they kind of went "Okay now WE KNOW these robots sell" so they couldn't keep the roster small anymore. It's a business. They have all sorts of merchandise connected to it.

    The key is to keep it small. Have more screen time for each robot. And then add the Michael Bay magic.

    I really, really hope there's at least one more chapter to come. The series can't stop/reboot now, just when we're on the verge of finally getting Unicron!

    Not the way we want though. With Unicron established as being the Earth, there's no way we are going to see him Transform.

    Not necessarily. They could suggest that Unicron has been locked in some kind of stasis for eons (sort of like how the Autobots were once trapped in vehicular modes in an old G1 episode.) He CAN transform, but allowing him to do so would result in everything that's grown over his shell during the intervening ages - the Earth's crusts, plant and animal life, human civilization - to be instantly destroyed. The script could compensate by showing Unicron's alternate shape in various flashbacks.

    Honestly, my biggest complaint about TLK was the lack of screen time for Optimus Prime. He was absent from the main story for far too long.

    I have watched TLK about 15 times I would say, not including just watching random scenes on Instagram/ITunes on my phone/Computer. My preferred way of watching this movie is the 3D version, it is incredible (just like Age of Extinction and Dark of the Moon). If you have a 3D setup at home, do yourself a favor and buy DotM, AoE and TLK in 3D. I am a HUGE fan of this movie. I keep finding little story elements/details that I missed before. I also found that watching this movie after AoE is truly amazing. It feels like a proper sequel, I just wish we could get a 6th movie from Bay. All in all I am very impressed with the movie, I feel that the writing and story are very well crafted. Like the other Transformer films and all of Bays movies, the dialogue is entertaining, engaging, and complex. I get the sense that most of it flies right over people heads and they never grasp what is actually being said, it is just dismissed. To me it is apparent how much work and attention to detail went into making this movie. The size and complexity of all the moving parts in this film are overwhelming in the best way possible. I feel that the age of huge blockbuster popcorn entertainment that Bay has dominated since Armageddon may be over and it makes me sad. No other Directors or filmmakers make movies like this on such a scale and deliver such grand entertainment. Even his smaller films feel big. If this is indeed his last Transformers film as a Director, then I can only hope to see another massive popcorn blockbuster from Bay in the future. Nothing would make me happier as a Bayos fan. Hope everyone is well S4TE
