I remember my high school physics teacher used episode 2 to talk about bad physics in movies and I was its STAR WARS ass, its fantasy with alien babes, not The Core.
Nothing is worse than physics nerds who have to ruin the party
-Ok after reading it, this is exactly the kind of person that is in the top tier of lame. Thanks to him I still hate physics

Oh yeah, I got replies
Anyway, I'm surprised he liked it, have you read some of his other reviews?
Yeah, crazy how he wasn't really rough with TFs. This is the bit that got me.
Four very minor critiques? Not bad. Not bad at all.
Phsyics just kills fiction I swear. Seriously, there's a reason they call it FICTION!
How hard can you be on a movie about giant transforming alien robots? Come on.
I'm suprised he didn't bring up all the miraculous mystical stunts the Allspark pulled off. I guess he knows where to draw the line when it comes to suspension of belief.
I've read some of this guy's other reviews and he was surprisingly gentle with Transformers. Of course, I always mumble to myself while reading his reviews 'there is a reason it's fiction my friend'.
Jeez ,and we're called nerds for liking Transformers, this guy actually takes the time to pick apart the movies physics and put theory into transforming robots!
Seriously he picks apart the fact the robots sound heavier when they're in bot form. Maybe he's forgetting the whole fact that it's impossible for robots from a planet made of machinery with an unknown past to come to Earth, and scan vehicles to disguise themselves.
Sorry, critics piss me off (yes I noticed the irony)
That's kind of his "thing" he wrote the book on it - literally.
Were the TFs actually heavier in bot form? I figured that Prime's crushing stuff was just the result of basically smashing the weight of a semi-indestructable Peterbilt truck into the ground. I mean, I'm pretty sure if you dropped a semi on a fountain that the fountain is going to crumble.
I agree, as a matter of fact, I just posted this on his message board a few minutes ago:
I'm not sure I agree with something in Phil's review:
Think of this as an example - Optimus Prime is a rather large semi truck, I'm not sure of the exact weight, but don't they weight several thousands of tons?
Now you take that, and stand it up, now you have the entire weight of a semi truck concentrated into the area of the robot's two feet, not spread out among the tires and suspension of the truck. It seems pretty plausible that when the robot walks the ground would shake and it would leave craters.
Very plausible indeed.
