    What did he mean when he told Starscream "You know what you we're told which is nothing". Did it have anything to do with the real plan on earth or what?

    I still ponder that line as well. Then again Megatron was a bit high and probably had no idea what starscream said.

    It means Megatron doesn't trust Starscream and deliberately doesn't tell him everything in his plans. I would infer from the scene at the Lincoln Memorial that Starscream didn't know there was a deal made with Sentinel Prime.

    it means that starscream is an IDIOT in megatron's eyes and there fore he was told NOTHING of the alliance between sentinel prime and him self to bring the gate into operation to take resources to their planet for "reconstruction" purposes...

    Probably Megatron didn't tell him anything because he somehow knows about Starscreams ambitions, and therefore expected some kind of a stab in the back from him.

    Fixed.

    Basically it's a "need to know basis, and you don't need to know" statement.

    I pretty much dismissed everything Megatron said in the film as the mad ravings of a poor lunatic. Seriously, half the stuff he says makes no sense.

    I love how Megatron just straight away yells at Starscream for his smart ass comment and replies to Soundwave nicely.

    I heard that in the novel it was Scream who shot down the Ark indicating he was told nothing.

    Yes. It doesn't mean he had to be told about the plans Megatron had, he just simply followed orders.

    In the end during the final fight, Megatron yells, "This is my planet"......why the hell would he yell that?

    It means he is in charge not Sentinel Prime.

    Of course Megatron wont tell Starscream about Sentinel Prime not only does Starscream have ambitions he would've tattletale Megatron on the Fallen.

    The Fallen wanted every Prime dead because they can kill him. The Fallen who is the original leader of the Decepticons.

    Megatron always wanted command. Sharing is not his thing. But he is not above using Bots as tools to get there.

    I think in the novel, Starscream shot Sentinel's ship, totally wrecking the original plan Megatron had, which implies that Megatron did not trust Starscream enough to tell him the plan.
