    I haven't seen this covered too much in any great detail so far.

    So in the first Bayformers Sam goes face to face with Megatron while he's trying to obtain the Allspark.

    In ROTF he goes face to face with Megs while Sam is his prisoner.

    I think Sam should have gone face to face with Megatron again in DOTM.

    I'm not a huge fan of Carlys 'pep' talk to Megatron, I'm saying is if that had to happen, I think Sam should have been the one to do it. They kind of know each other at this point, I think it would have made a better scene.

    I actually forget what it was he was doing during that scene. Could someone jog my memory on that one?

    OK, I think if Megatron saw Sam, he wouldn't give him time to talk. He would just squish him.

    Sam and Megs aren't exactly buddy-buddy.

    Oh yea, thanks.


    Yea you might be right. But then again; Megatron isn't exactly the type to normally wallow in self pity, either.

    Yep, Sam would have been better.

    Carly's scene with Megs almost seemed like an attempt on Bay's or Kruger's part to justify hiring a Victoria's Secret Model. IE "Yeah, she's a lingerie model, but she's actually a REALLY GOOD ACTRESS! And to show off her acting chops, we're going to have her redeem Megatron!" Problem is I've seen dogs act better than her. I would've preferred Jar Jar Binks to show up out of nowhere and say "Mesa so sad for Yousa Megatron! You so pussy!" over the "You're his bitch!" line.

    Remember, Carly was the one that watched Sentinel bitch-slap Megatron. The way the movie was structured by that point, it made more sense for Carly to do it than Sam.

    I'm not exactly a big fan either of Carly being the one to talk Megatron into fighting after him sitting out of almost the entire Chicago fight. I would have actually liked to see Megatron be more than SP's whipping boy. The final fight should have been a little more epic, more like the forest battle scene from ROTF.

    I was personally hoping that Megatron, after getting smacked around by Sentinel, would do the Charlie Brown walk of shame (with the music and the Snoopy's dog house in the backfround. Kind of like this:

    YouTube - ‪Arrested Development - Charlie Brown moments‬‏

    Or at least have him get tossed off the side of the building. In the movie he just sort of got smacked around and disappeared until Carly went to brighten his day.
