Burning Questions: The 10 Most Confusing Things in 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'
I really wish I could get paid to write crap like that, acting all clever when all I'm really doing is pointing out that I can't pay attention, follow a simple plot, or use any basic logic.
Sam's bandage aside, which is something I've brought up in another thread, this guy is a moron and this are moron questions.
To be fair, robot heaven was confusing to anyone who never watched the cartoon. Everything else, well I think people are just piling on now because they don't want to get made fun of for saying they liked the movie. There was a "critic" on the radio yesterday (filmdrunk.com or something) and he was basically calling anyone who said they liked ROTF a retard. Really, so us "retards" contributed $400 million to the film and we're the ones in the wrong.
I think these are logical questions for an average moviegoer to ask
Pretty much this. In all our anti-critic nerdrage, I think we tend to forget that most of these people only watched the movie once. Heaven forbid things get a little confusing for people with the explosions, shaky cams, and general chaos that is the movie.
So screw these guys for being confused because they didn't watch the movie four or more times already! Fucking idiots, scum of the Earth!
Good questions - it all points to general sloppiness in editing.
He does make a few valid points. But he writes in such a squirmy annoying way, that i just think, "Tit"!
While I'm not saying the plot is air tight, couldn't a similar list be made for almost any sci-fi/fantasy/monster movie ever made? Not until Phantom Menace did we really get a scientific explanation of "the force", and when they did, everyone hated them for it. These kind of movies aren't going to give encyclopedic explanations of everything. Watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy- amazing movies with great reviews, but how much do they really explain in the movies themselves? Not a bunch.
cant people just shut the f*** up, sit back and enjoy a movie with over thinking it to death. these movies are ment to be fun and entertaing. so a big middle finger to ANYONE who nit picks this movie. and two middle finger to the fans on sites like this who nit pick it, "ehh transformer heaven" "farting robots" how can you be such a fan even though you have lost your childlike enthusiasm?
i mean sure there are a few things about this movie that were "different" but common!
this movie was awesome!
I could only imagine how confusing it must have been for a person unfamiliar with Transformers. I've been following this movie since the beginning, and I still sometimes am unable to tell what it is I'm looking at from the robot designs.
I'd usually just flame such idiotic comments, but I'm just gonna report you instead.
Oh it's always about the designs with Superion.
If my 60 year old auntie can tell who is who, so should you. No excuses.
Anyway, it seems that non-fans got a problem with understanding the religious aspects of the franchise like the originals and Matrix Heaven, they seem to think that Transformers ain't much more than speaking robots, shame but it was expected wasn't it? Our favorite franchise got some extra nuts storyline to the point where Hasbro writers themselves don' t know what it's all about.
Did you even read it or are you just lashing out defensively because something you liked is being attacked? Paying attention, following a simple plot or using logic wouldn't have answered most of the questions he raised there.
I do wish I could get paid to read message boards and write an article about crap we argue about all day though
it's not confusing to follow, it's just excruciatingly mind numbing to follow.
Those are definately valid points. The only one I don't agree with is Scalpel's glasses. He turns into the microscope, so his glasses are his magnifying lenses. I find that more interesting then the usual "adjusting robo-eyes".
But again, valid points. The dude just comes off as a dick when you read the article, though.
first post. He failed hard on number 7. They were National Air and Space Museum, which is located in Chantilly, Va. Which happens to be where I saw ROTF in IMAX. He seems to think they were at the Smithsonian Air and Apace Museum, which is in Washington D.C. Just thought i would point this out.
Yeah that was kinda nitpicky, it was just a lil' effect they gave to the CGI Model, it was harmless and kinda gave the character more personality in a weird way.
Also, number 2, the second piece of allspark that Sam found was used to bring back Jetfire.
Ok simmer down, no need to be so aggro.
You do know you still called his comment idiotic even if it was indirect, so you still flamed and you reported.
When are you people going to realize being right about if the movie is good or bad isn't going to solve anything and start mellowing out?
yeah...same goes for all of his geography related points. Who cares about that....and for that matter HE got the smithsonian geography wrong. The national mall is about a 45 minute drive from where the SR-71 is kept.
