    This is sure to incite some fan rage, but honestly, when I read this, I couldn't stop laughing. If you're a hardcore fan of the movie, I'd suggest skipping this altogether, unless you've got a sense of humor:

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon: The Abridged Script | The Editing Room


    There's also ones for the 2007 movie (as Soundwave3K mentioned a few years ago here: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...diting-room-transformers-abridged-script.html), as well as RotF (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: The Abridged Script | The Editing Room), which is equally as hilarious.


    They've also got some others like The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers. Have a look!

    It would have made for a much better movie.

    :lol  This is sort of like Cracked.com's occasional "If [insert movie here] was ten times shorter and one hundred times more honest"-articles.

    Part of me laughed because it was funny, part of me cried because it was true, and another part of me had my jimmies rustled because some of it was hyperbolic crap.

    I stopped reading after the first two 'lines'. It has neither humor nor creativity.

    It was pretty funny, but it kinda insults the franchise itself sooooo....

    I'll often drop into there after I've seen a film for the first time to see if there's a script of it there. Quality varies wildly. None are comedic masterpieces, but they're amusing enough, especially if you thought the movie in question was crap or had a lot of problems in story logic.

    It's not funny. I've seen far better abridged series.

    It used to be by rod exclusively but now they have contributors. Some are off but some are pretty good, i recommend 'the mechanic'.

    (if it reminds you of cracked.com thats because it was featured on cracked.com)

    That's actually where Cracked gets them from.

    I felt the same, but over all, I had to admit it was just funny. Sometimes you just have to laugh it off. The movies they do aren't always bad movies either. They've done a Spider-Man 2 one, which is one of my favorites, and while they poked fun at a lot of it, they at least admit in the end how good of a movie it was. Transformers on the other hand, well...it's got it's fair share of stuff to make fun of, and not as much redeemable qualities.

    this would only be funny if the nostalgic critic, linkara, cinema snob, and ect were voicing the lines.

    and needs a better script too. lol

    Ohhh, this isn't going to be a good day for all the easily offended, overly sensitive, melodramatic, delicate sensibilities that run around here.

    Fun read :)

    It seems as though a good deal of the fandom has stayed away this far, surprisingly. Perhaps they heeded my advice.
