So, let me get this straight... The content you hated is fine stretched out for nearly 2.5 hours, THREE times over but you can't handle it for 90+ minutes? I mean, really stop and think about what you're saying here. Bumblebee cried windshield washer fluid, people found it charming and cute. It looked stupid. If you can't handle it for 100-ish minutes, but you can handle it for SEVEN AND A HALF HOURS over three overlong and bloated movies and the only difference is the reproductive organs of the human protagonist, then yes, it's sexism on your part. Your argument makes zero sense, and is what people have cried about and clamored for change over for a DECADE. You didn't bat an eye. They do it in a film where it actually makes sense and is handled with care and sensibility and you're up in arms crying foul? Good grief. One day, you'll look back on this and feel serious pangs of regret. We always look back and wish we could've done better, been better. Please have your epiphany sooner, rather than later, for the sake of the rest of us. Women have problems, too. Women are relatable, too. Women are soldiers who've died for a greater cause and YOUR freedom, too. They have boobies and an innie instead of an outie. Ooh! Cooties! Please, stop and think. What are you talking about?! The reason the dang first movie dragged on is because we had to watch Sam tell his mother off about Mojo's "bling", dealing with Uncle Bobby B ripping him off, hanging out with a friend who deserves better and also getting arrested by the police and getting caught with his dog's meds. I just explained ALL of that in a few lines and people will get the gist, it took the filmmakers FIFTY EIGHT MINUTES of a two and a half hour film to do the same thing and they still bogged it down with even more garbage like a video game playing "hacker" who didn't actually hack anything (he accessed a SD Card, hardly a hack) as well as the filmmakers enjoying a circle jerk of the military and getting their rocks off during excessive and needless explosions that ran over budget just a few gas cans too many. Sam didn't stand up to his bullies, he mocked them and made fun of them until Mikaela stepped in and turned them away. That wasn't standing up to them, that was letting your mouth write a check your body can't cash and fortunately someone else stopped him before he could finish putting his stupid name on it. You don't have to like Charlie or her family, but that's not your issue... SHE is not Sam. She's a she, not a he, and you don't like it. That's the very definition of sexism and it's not going to get better for you until you admit you have a problem. I guarantee if Charlie had actually been Charles and went through exactly the same thing as the current Bumblebee film, you'd have loved it. Or at least liked it more. And you say Bumblebee is more or less stupid and wasted here... Like he wasn't in the other films? He urinated on Simmons. He cried windshield washer fluid. He let Sam and Mikaela make out on his hood while the other Autobots watched. He was supposed to be protecting Sam and failed as Sam was still killed and went to robot Heaven. (Though, I'll meet you halfway on this last one, it was written that way to further the story and get it to conclusion. Still, Bumblebee sucked at his job.) He then became a living MacGuffin in TLK. Him being goofy because he lost his memory is the thing that offends you most about him thus far? Are you serious? C'mon. That's a legit crazy amount of reaching to justify a terrible viewpoint to bolster your sexist views. This all started with hating on a female protagonist and ends with you making digs at a character who's been the writers whipping boy since day one. Oh, and in case you're forgetting (and you clearly are) this is a last minute reboot, but a reboot nonetheless and the film is aimed at families with kids, they needed him to be relatable and cute to get families on the hook. Now that they're there, he can be all the awesome you need to him to be. Though, I assure you, your definition and mine aren't in the same zip code.. .
