Finally saw Transformers: RotF
Sunday, May 29, 2011

As I recall, the movie got panned pretty harshly. Not being into the series very much from the beginning, even Megan Fox wasn't enough to sway me to go see this in the theatres.

The girl is smokin' hot. Almost so, that it negates her off screen idiocy, but I digress.

As for the movie... what were folks expecting ? It's a movie about TRANSFORMERS ! Duh. I mean, aside from some really poorly edited parts, and some really lame writing here or there... the movie delivered damn near what I'd expected it to. Cool fx , a smokin' hot Megan Fox... and a plot that was about as thin as tissue paper. Exactly what one would expect, right ?

Top of mind things which I felt were horrible in the movie:

- Skin job co-ed. Really ? A 'cylon' transformer ?

- ghetto 'bots. Only slightly less annoying than Jar Jar. ( shudder )

- Resurrection scenes. Both of Optimus Prime and young Witwicky. Ugh.

I could go on and list a few more, but what's the point? I mean, Transformers was never my 'thing', so to be overly critical at this point seems silly.

There was action, Megan Fox, neat FX... ok, so it was a bit long for my likes, but other than that, what's all the fuss? It wasn't a HORRIBLE movie.. not as bad as the last Indian Jones pile of go-se.

My main problem with the entire Bay'verse sub-continuity is just that: it's exactly what a non-fan would expect (it is a horrible movie, but your expectations are so low that you give it a pass).

It's like introducing a non-Whedonite to Joss by showing them the Kristy Swanson Buffy movie. . .

Transformers could be so much more. Check out Beast Wars , Animated , Prime , or the early IDW comics (the "-ation" arcs [Infiltration, Escalation, Devastation Revelation]) to see what Transformers is capable of when firing on all cylinders.
