1. Transformers: The Last Knight
“Seriously, macha? Transformers?” – Not-Roger Ebert.
Some of ya’ll might be asking why the UN hasn’t stepped in and outright banned this franchise. While some of ya’ll are probably screaming, “WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THESE MOVIES??!!!” I feel your frustration and confusion bursting out of my computer screen. The Transformers franchise sucks more d*ck than your back-alley prostitutes I get it.
Here’s the cruel joke, though. Believe it or not, this franchise rakes in a crap ton of money. Wanna know an even crueller joke? The key to the Transformers franchise success is this: The worse the movies get, the more money it makes.
Don’t believe me? The numbers speak for themselves.
|Movie||Rotten Tomatoes Score||Worldwide Box Office Gross|
|Transformers (2007)||57%||709 Mil USD|
|Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen||19%||836 Mil USD|
|Transformers: Dark of the Moon||35%||1.1 Billion USD|
|Transformers: Age of Extinction||18%||1.1 Billion USD|
Besides the first Transformers film, all the proceeding movies have been unanimously panned by the critics, yet it continuously rakes in the big bucks. The Transformers franchise is critic-proof, as they say. And there is nothing anyone can do about it. It doesn’t matter if the upcoming Transformers: The Last Knight is just three hours of explosions, robot orgies and Anthony Hopkins hopping on one leg singing Twinkle Twinkle Little Stars. It will most likely crack the one billion USD mark again.
Prediction: 1.2 billion USD #Nofaithinhumanityleft
