Transformers movies are like the dumb jock who scores a lot of touchdowns, but gets held back only to pick on the smart kids, and you and I are the smart kids. Smart kids know these movies are mindless entertainment that make money, that’s fine and dandy, but the quality is only getting worse! Just give Michael Bay and Transformers an honorary diploma or degree like they do celebrities and just get them the hell out of here!
The fourth installment was nothing short of steaming pile of mechanical sh** and I’m not sure who is seeing these films (the Chinese), but they are making billions of dollars which warrants more sequels. I want the people who wanted Deadpool PG-13 to start petitioning these movies and have the director and brain trusts to go somewhere else.
Even if Bay is confirmed to only direct the fifth one, this is a property that has smothered us like Saint Bernard (in a bad way) only to keep drooling on us. If anything, we need more Pacific Rim movies rather than Transformers. We love giant robots, but damn, at least give us good giant robots, right?
The release dates for the films kick off with Transformers 5 on June 23, 2017, Transformers 6 has been set for June 8, 2018, and we’ll get Transformers 7 on June 28, 2019.
