    What exactly did Prime do to The Fallen that no one else could? Since "only a Prime could kill him". I mean all he really did was scrap with him, no special powers or anything were used on O.P.'s part.

    Pointing out holes in this script is like pointing out the individual holes in a 7 mile long piece of swiss cheese. Best not to dwell.

    I mean I like Bay, Orci and Kurtzman, but there's only so much shit that can be force fed before the toilet over-flows. PS- I really, really liked the movie. Soundwave FTW!

    I know pointing plot holes in Bay movies is old hat, but like I said it was just bothering me.

    Okay, I finally figured out my main beef with the movie.

    ROTF does exactly what the first film does, only in a larger degree.

    What TF1 did?

    It had action.
    It had teen-movie silliness.
    It had army.
    It had robots.
    It had silly jokes.

    ROTF has everything of the above, but more and more.

    Now here's the problem: A guy who goes to see the movie mainly for the action, and gets turned off by the teen-movie elements and silly jokes might be overwhelmed.

    Think of this example:
    You are in a room. A corridor connects this room to the kithcen. In the kitchen, there is an amazing, delicious cake. You must go through the corridor to enter the kitchen and eat the cake. However, in the corridor, there is a fly buzzing around.

    And you hate / fear / get disgusted by insects.

    The fly is a bit annoying, but you either shrug it off with your hand, or just walk with a fast pace, covering your face or some crap like that. You go through, you enter the kitchen, and eat the cake.

    Now, imagine the same example, but instead of a fly, you have a freakin bee nest, and spiders on the floor and walls and wasps buzzing all over.

    You either say "screw this" and don't leave your room, or you run forward, squashing spiders with your feet, getting stung by bees and wasps but you finally make it through the even more delicious cake.

    But you're scarred for life during the effort.

    When the things you don't like in a movie you're seeing are increased in the sequel, you just don't cringe at silly cops who act as if they're on crack, you become quite negative.

    Hmm, a small thought went too far. Operation: Shutting up.

    If this trend continues, when Transformers 3 comes out, you simply walk into a theater, pay twelve dollars, clamp a bear trap to your junk and an electric eel rapes your ear. While you look at a picture of Megan Fox. There may or may not be a picture of a Transformer involved, since they apparently aren't the draw.

    I could honestly care less about her. She's hot and all, but I honestly don't give a fuck. I pay no mind to the non fanboy/girl, average movie goer crowd. They might as well not even exist to me. And that's who she's there to impress. I'd rather have the movie fail at the box office for actually being a movie about Transformers, then to have it suceed based off of some half-wit Angelina Jolie clone.

    Just sayin is all.

    I've never liked her. I don't understand the appeal. Look at her face, she looks like the kind of girl who would spit on one of us just as soon as look at us. I guarantee she couldn't hold a conversation for more than 30 seconds that didn't involve make-up or pot.

    Oh, that's right. She wants to get that super-cool tattoo sleeve, because I guess 4 years in the future when she might want to possibly take a real role where she "acts" is too far to think about. Yeah, I'm sure everything on that sleeve is going to be really relevant to her when she gets older, a butterfly, a corona bottle, the word "Prada".

    Being rejected by someone is no reason not to drool over that someone ...

    I remember I wanted to have "welcome aboard" tattooed in my ... little jack.

    They could just use make up to get rid of them, like they do to Angelina Jolie' tattoos.


    Oops, I compared Megan Fox to Angelina Jolie!

    But she's so fakey. Totally not my type. Give me sexy librarians and goth chicks any day of the week. Unapologetic for their love of geeks, and you can watch sci-fi with them.
