Why I Like the Transformers Movies

Yeah, that's right. Laugh. Go ahead, get it all out of your system. I like the Transformers movies. People often laugh at me for it, but I like them. I like them, Sam I Am.

Reason 1: Transformers is freakin' awesome. Everybody loves action and giant robots punching each other in the face; it's the perfect mix. Transformers was awesome in the 1980s and now that all those kids are all grown up, they just wanna see what they knew and loved as children on the big screen. These movies are perfect for that because they follow the material well. Yes, the material is over the top and "out there", but who does over the top better than Michael Bay?

Reason 2: Just because Michael Bay movies consist of nothing outside the realm of explosions and hot babes, doesn't mean he's not good at it. He knows how to moves the camera to tell his story, even if his story lacks depth and a decent script, but who walks into a Michael Bay film thinking "Gee, I hope this is an emotionally stirring movie that wins an Oscar for anything at all"? Just because it's simple, doesn't mean it's bad. He's no auter, but Michael Bay is good at setting the mood, that is, only when the mood revolves around something getting destroyed and Transformers is all about destroying stuff- always has been.  

Reason 3: It's just fun, people. I wish that everybody would just stop taking these movies so seriously. Who cares if it's just Shia LaBeouf running around with a mcguffin while things are getting blown up? That's how the cartoon was. Besides, it's at the very least entertaining ( and I do mean "at the very least).

So there you have it. Those are the reason why I like these movies. Oh, and by the way, another thing Michael Bay is good at doing is making millions of dollars at the box office. With the original Transformers making over $300 million worldwide and Revenge of the Fallen rakin' in more than $400 million worldwide, Michael Bay is putting up digits that you probably won't see in your lifetime. And what are you doing? You're sitting here, reading reasons why I like his Transformers movies. Ha! What a waste of time. Jokes on you, ya jerk.
