I just hate the characters in all of his movies because he's such a bad storyteller. Take the first one, for example...they spend a good amount of time building up Megan Fox's character as juvenile delinquent with a record, throw in some sappy moment where Shia tells John Turturro that he won't help save the world if he doesn't erase Megan Fox's record...just so at the end of the movie it "makes sense" that she knows how to hot wire a tow truck to save Bumblebee. Even his action scenes, while impressive, are just too much. The end of the 3rd one seemed like it was an hour long. After a while I started to feel like I was about to have a seizure and felt dumber for watching it. The comic relief he tries to throw in his movies is always pretty bad too.
