I blame a decade worth of crappy Michael Bay Transformer movies for ruining the steam of the first relatively faithful Transformers live action movie.

Pretty much. I think the fact the the Bay films has continued the same basic plot of retrieving the MacGuffin of Ultimate Power from the first film shows genuinely how unimaginative Michael Bay is with the series.

We should also blame Spielberg as well. He was the Executive Producer of Bayformers and reigned in Bay in the first movie. After that he sat on his duff and let the franchise get run into the ground like he did with JP.

Bumblebee is considered profitable by Paramount:

https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2019-01-10/paramount-pictures-is-hollywood-s-comeback-kid

Quote :
“Bakish congratulated Paramount for a successful turnaround, using the latest in the Transformers franchise as an example: Bumblebee, he said, is “solidly profitable” while its predecessor in the summer of 2017 lost more than $100 million.”

“Gianopulos is also trying to recharge “Transformers,” which is based on the Hasbro Inc. toys. Derided for being shallow, irritatingly loud and with contrived machismo, the 2017 installment — the final one to be directed by Michael Bay — was the lowest-grossing in the series and scored just 15 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Now, with director Travis Knight, the franchise has been re-imagined, and the recently released “Bumblebee” — which stars a female lead and was the first “Transformers” screenplay to be written by a woman — is already meeting positive reviews.”
