>>113358853>I don't see the appeal of a movie where most of the characters people are familiar with are killed off pointlessly
Something tells me you're being disingenuous about this, I somehow think you're the same kind of person who would be saying the G1 TV series was "awful and one of the worst cartoons I've ever seen". I don't believe you give a shit about Ironhide or Prowl or anyone who died in the film, if I'm wrong you can let me know because the issue of character deaths upsetting G1 fans is a different debate entirely.> The animation isn't good, the sound effects like Unicron's chomping are hilariously bad
So you're a zoomer who can't into "dated", bet you also complain about Animaniacs just cause you don't get the references. Once again if I'm wrong, feel free to say so. Even if you love 80's animation though, I have a hard time believing you truly think this movie looks "bad", it wasn't Disney...but it wasn't "bad", and it has a kitsch charm that is appealing to some people, presumably the people who like 80's shit.>it introduces a bunch of new characters that are uninteresting at best and downright annoying at worst
Who is annoying other than Wheelie? If you hate Wreck-Gar, F U is all I have to say. No fun allowed jpeg.>and half the movie takes place on other planets with robot people unrelated to the main conflict that feels like a bad fever trip.
This, I will say, is actually true...though "bad" is subjective, it's exactly what I like about the movie, it's just a crazy adventure through space with epic moments and robots. It's like the Transformers version of Heavy Metal in a way, it's just meant to be enjoyed visually and go along for the ride of cool and badass shit happening.
Though I would say, Idk what you're doing looking for something extremely deep or high art with TF, it's about robots who fight, it's not supposed to be a thinkpiece for fedoras to smoke their bubble pipes and discuss, it's supposed to appeal to your inner child.
