    to tell the truth, i was skeptical when i heard last summer that he was going to be in the movie...but after just watching Disturbia, i can't wait. he was excellent in that movie, and i have no doubt that he'll be great in Transformers.

    i guess i just couldnt disassociate him with being somewhat of a child star, and i felt that that didnt fit with the TF premise, but i've shed myself of that mindset. Shia kicks ass.

    Yeah, if you hate him, go watch Disturbia. You'll definately pull a 360 after that.

    He's alright, just seems to me he's playing the same role in every movie he does.

    I did like the Greatest Game Ever Played.

    You can still hate an actor even though they're talented.

    Heh. that video is pretty funny.

    I think Shia's a decent actor, what puts me off to him is how much of a fucktard he sounds like in all his interviews.

    I'm not too concerned about acting in an action movie. As long as the exploding stuff explodes, giant robots smash giant robots. I'm going to be happy.

    I thought he was good in Constantine. I couldn't care less about his personality, as long as he acts well in the movie.

    Why did they shoot each other? I had no sound so couldn't make out too much, other than that room was cursed.

    Constatine was a good movie. Was Shia that kid that was working for him, if so he was jiped in the end when he was killed.

    I'm sure he'll out-act the dude whose job it is to shout "BRING IT".

    Never heard of Disturbia, I'll check that out.

    Wow! It's only been the top BO draw for 2 wks in a row - not bad for a "teen-flick".

    Disturbia's on my want-to-see list for this wkend (payday!!). I liked him in Constantine, and apparently some of the other (indie?) stuff he's done isn't too bad.

    I think it's intersting that right now,since it's been confirmed that he's in Indy Jones 4, though not as WHO, he's working out to put on weight/muscle, cuz he doesn't want to look too wimpy next to 64 y/o Ford. It'll be interesting to see how that turns out - he's tolerable on the eyes as is, some bulk may do wonders.

    I'm just tired of Shia looking constipated in every still photo from the TF movie.

    I understand you're scared of Giant F'in Robots terrorizing the city but there's a distinct difference between "Oh $#1+ a friggin robot" and "Oh $#1+ I shouldn't have eaten at Taco Bell".

    I hope he doesn't always look like that in the movie.
