After 4 explosive movies, the last two which have grossed over a billion dollars each worldwide, TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT is hitting theaters this weekend. Have we reached 'sequel fatigue' yet with these films?

Fans of the franchise don't even understand what these movies are about, but that doesn't stop them from going. Even comic book icon Rob Liefeld chimed in:

Explosions and fighting robots are all people need to sit in a theater and be entertained these days? While some movies go for a more deeper connection with the audience, there's something to be said about a franchise that has pulled in nearly $4 billion on special effects driven theatrics. Join me, as I wonder if Transformers has jumped the shark, or if mind-numbing popcorn flicks will still continue to make a billion dollars at the box office.
