And I don't want future Transformers movies to necessarily repeat Bumblebee's plot either, cos we don't want that to get stale either.
EXACTLY this. Regardless of what comes forward, the feeling this movie gave me permanently etches it into my heart and mind as the 'go-to' live action transformers movie from here on in. It'll be really tough to beat for me and actually quite difficult (and in some cases, uncomfortable, i'm looking at YOU TLK) to watch the others. I'll still enjoy them, but for what they were, an attempt to bring life to my favourite little plastic transforming toys but never quite hitting the mark. I have a feeling i'll always enjoy Bumblebee for what it IS (note not past tense, and sorry if I've mucked up my English there Goktimus )

According to a couple of news stories yesterday theBee movie is approaching $300m and had a great China debut so is now outperforming Aquaman. Itís also left behind the newSpiderman and Mary Poppins flicks so I reckon itís doing fine

I just got back from watching Bumblebee, pretty solid movie, human leads actually have depth, growth and are not annoying.

Really hope Lindsay Ellis does a video essay comparing the 2007 movie to Bumblebee.

Probably not the highest bench mark out there, but still good news.

My daughter and I watched it for the second time yesterday. We both enjoyed it more than the first viewing. Very re-watchable (I'm sure there's a better term than this) movie that will have long-term appeal IMHO.

Yes, I was admiring his robo-calves on my second viewing.
