I prefered the stan lee cartoons, the live action movie didn't have such good CGI not to my tastes and the movies weren't good either especially later ones.

Yes, I agree the series dropped off fast, but it did seem to turn a corner with Bumblebee. I did hear that the next one will be more like the last and Bumblebee (2018) taught them alot.

Each of the movies is too long, but I was initially fascinated with the 2007 one. I have never even seen Revenge of the Fallen (but am willing to give it a look if I can watch it at no charge), whereas Dark of the Moon somehow both bored and overwhelmed me. Every sequel tries to outdo the previous in intensity, for lack of a better word. (A similar trend exists in The Fast and Furious franchise.) The Yeager family storyline was a nice comeback for the Transformers franchise, but many of the same problems from before reared their ugly heads. I've always appreciated the the special effects and the level of photorealism in visual effects, but a lot of times the style or "animation" is simply unreasonably jarring. Meanwhile, elements of plot convenience are always a disappointment, of course. I wish writers would be more careful about that.

I couldn't agree more. Almost every movie is too action driven /effects driven and not enough story driven.  I have watched 3 hour plus movies that didn't seem long at all. These movies are 3 plus hours and they seem like twice that in running time. I was glad too see them cut the budget on the last installment, Bumblebee in half it made for a much better movie.

Future Transformer Movie Outlook (per Wikipedia)

"On June 21, 2017, Transformers: The Last Knight was released. The film was universally panned by film critics and underperformed at the domestic and international box-office, becoming the least profitable film in the franchise. On May 23 the following year, the planned sequel was removed from Paramount's release schedule. By December 2018, di Bonaventura stated that there would still be further films in the series, while also acknowledging that the franchise will make some changes in tone and style due to the success of Bumblebee.

By March 2019, di Bonaventura stated that the studio was developing sequels to Bumblebee and The Last Knight,but the following month, he said that a direct sequel to Transformers: The Last Knight was not in development yet. Currently Paramount Pictures and Hasbro Studios are also developing an untitled spin off film based on the character Optimus Prime, a animated film set on Cybertron, a sequel to Bumblebee which will be a Bumblebee and Optimus Prime buddy movie, a live action Beast Wars, Transformers Love Stories, a Transformers/G.I. Joe Crossover, Live Action Transformers TV Shows and a Reboot film."
