After re-watching ROTF and DOTM, I'm actually pretty surprised at how much Sam's character changed between the two films. I'm not sure if it was because of different writers, but the change wasn't for the better. In ROTF, he wanted nothing to do with the Autobots, and wanted to just be a normal guy. In DOTM, he couldn't handle the idea of being normal, and complained all the time about not being involved with the Autobots. To be honest I thought he was a bit of a whiny bitch in DOTM, and seemed angry at everyone and everything throughout the whole film. I'm not a huge fan of DOTM in the first place, but Sam's attitude for me didn't do anything to help the movie. I'm just wondering if anyone else found his personality somewhat grating throughout the film, especially considering how he behaved in ROTF.
