Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

   10 July 2009, terribly early in the morning

I watched Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen last night. As much as I hate Michael Bay, I love Transformers too much not to watch the movie. The film is better than the first film, though it still kind of sucks in the grand scheme of things. (Many of my complaints about the first film apply equally to the second.) This movie features a reimagined Soundwave, Megan Fox, guns, lots of cars exploding, lots of regular ass explosions, and people running in slow motion. Those are all things I can get behind. It also features crappy dialogue, hammed-up acting, fairly offensive jive-talking robots, and a very stupid plot: classic Bay. If you like Michael Bay, this film takes what he does to whole new levels. I want to punch Michael Bay in the dick, but even I have to admit the dude knows how to blow up some cars. As I’ve said before, there is only one true Transformers movie, and it was made in 1986.

  1. No, this movie sucked way more than transformers 1

  2. No way: No stupid Australian Hacker Chick story line; No stupid jive talking fat Black dude ultimate hacker dude storyline; No 45 minutes of Herby the Love Bug; Robots start blowing up 5 minutes into the film; etc. I can go on and on.

  3. But the first one had lines from the original movie.

  4. Robots in Heaven was much, much worse than the ultimate hacker storyline. I can deal with bad hacker storylines because they’re everywhere in movies, but, Robots in Heaven coupled with Tyrese’s “God made us in his image. Who made those guys?” makes me want to bludgeon someone.

  5. They weren’t in heaven, they were in his head or some shit like that because he had the magical robot dust all over him. And that was such a small part of the film, compared to the whole NSA story line in the first movie.

  6. I fucking hated & walked out of Transformers one, but this movie is starting to sound kind of awesome. Magic robot dust? Robot heaven? Jive talking robots — is there anything it doesn’t have?

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
