Can't agree with that. Transformers: The Movie is a legitimately good movie and not just for nostalgic reasons (although it was part of my childhood). It's also the best Transformers movie to date. The Bay movies are an abomination for many, many reasons but mainly for how he manages to completely misunderstand the characters (turning Optimus Prime from a noble hero to a brutal killer with no empathy for example).I meant the first two live-action Bay-led movies. I find the '86 animated one like I find most cartoons from my childhood, absolute dribble. All of it. TMNT, Voltron, Thundercats, Silverhawks, G.I Joe, etc. They had great theme songs, great "transformation" sequences (He-Man, Voltron), and one or two good recycled action animations, but that's it. None of them aged well.
Bumblebee is the best of the live action movies.
