Hi everyone. I just wanted to say a few words. Just a bit of warning at first. I have a feeling this post might be a little long winded...we'll find out. I've beening thinking alot about the upcoming movie and what I seem to have against it and what not. Just to let you know, I'm not trying to start a fight or anything. I'm just thinking outloud here. So if some of you guys don't like my opinion that's fine. I just though I'd warn you. Obviously I haven't seen the movie yet, and my final decision won't be made until I see it. But why do I have such a chip on my shoulder about it already? The story: I'm ok with. No problem. You need a plot and this sounds like a decent one. The characters: I don't like them. For every single character I see I can point out several things wrong with each of them, and how they're not being true to the character in which they're being based on. Optimus Prime: Probebly the least screwed up of them all. He's got the right face (with mask) the right color scheme. The robot mode wierds me out a bit still. He just doesn't seem to command the majesty of the original Prime. But he's good enough for government work. Bumblebee: I understand every movie needs a star, and BB is it, but he's just way too cool of car. I know that must sound petty, but come on. BB's supposed to be the cute mascot of the Autobots, not a badass. Ratchet: Puke green? The face of a bulldog?.........Yep... Jazz: Why does he have the face a gremlin? And why is he a minicar? Isn't that supposed to be BB? Ironhide: He looks more like one of Unicrons heralds then Autobot security. He's more badass looking than Megs! Oh yea, and wrong color scheme. He's evil Trailbreaker. Megatron: I don't remember who said it but 'turd dipped in shrapnel' is a pretty good description. Plus has anyone else noticed how much he looks like Mandarin Spawn? StarScream: For a low level grunt that monkey looks pretty good. For second in command of the Decepticons? No. Barricade: If they got rid of the bug face he'd be fine. Bonecrusher: HAhAAA!!!! Brawl: Same thing as Barricade. Fix the head. Blackout: Eh, not bad. Though his face reminds me of Galvatron wearing a scuba mask. Flimsy....er, I mean Frenzy: It shows that drug abusers can get work in Hollywood. So my point for all that was...To me Bay's not being true to the characters. I'll be suprised if the man even cares about them. He just wants to make a movie with the best car chase scene in his career. However in spite of my shopping list of complaints this one thought occured to me last night, that changed my perception. No matter how bad this movie may, or may not be. No matter how much this movie might be butchered................It still ain't gonna be as bad as the 1987 Masters of the Universe movie starring Dolph Lundgren. Who remember's the little gem? Talk about a Bastardized movie! It was horrible! And strangely enough I still like it... So that's my point. On July 4th, I may be leaving the movie theatre reeking of bad movie, and will need a shower. But I know it won't be as bad a Masters of the Universe. And that has actually made me feel better about the movie. Ok, long winded, it was, but I'm done. Thanks for reading. Feel free to discuss or ignore. I just wanted to share.
