I've met Rosie before.

True story.


Should have brought her to Baker Street before Bay got a hold of her.

Christ, it's going some when just one photo can convince me that a performance is gonna be woeful. God only knows what she's giving Mick Bay every night to have landed this gig.

Still, at least Bay has his priorities straight: Pussy > CGI flicks.

It's just swelled up, having been wrapped around Mike Bay's "Transformer" for too long. ;)

Kevin Williamson in Toronto Sun compares Megan Fox to the new girl

"Huntington-Whiteley, by comparison, possesses as much natural magnetism as a leggy ATM. Gazing upon the devastation being rained down by sentient shape-shifters, she looks as terrified as an underwear model who can’t decide which cocktail dress to choose." laugh

Who would have thought 10 years ago that this goofy kid from a quirky Disney show would become a blockbuster action movie star?







Makes you wonder what cinema would have become if Urkel took a stab.

Really loved the new film. Hated ROTF. Everything was pretty good (new girl included). Even the music was unexpectedly good. I preferred it to the first film, and there are some fine plot twists too. See it in 3D if you can 8)

Saw the new flick today with my cousin. It was dumb fun, although they really could have cut down on the action as it seemed to be endless during the last 30 minutes. And I was a bit surprised to hear Nimoy's voice, and not surprised to see Bay chuck in every opportunity to reference Star Trek.

The only film with a more nonsensical pile o shit excuse for a story than Transformers 3 is Transformers 2.

Colour me unsurprised.

Don't. Unless you want to experience about 3 hours of cinematic diarrhea.

Sarcasm overload! ;)


... Er, wait. laugh

Rosemary Wimbledon-Hunter might have scored better with the critics if Bay would have just let her be topless a few times. Of course, there's not much there, but at least it'd take the viewers' minds off of her [lack of] acting capabilities.

I ain't seen any of them.

Matter of fact, I've never seen a movie with Megan Fox, and I don't think I've ever seen a full movie with Shia LaBeef. I switched off I, SHIT ON THE LEGACY ISSAC ASIMOV after 40 minutes.

I took my little cousin to the first one. I think I said I liked it just because Spielberg was producing it.



So, yeah, you guys can shoot me if you want.

Oh yeah, that underwear model was laughably bad. The romance between her and LaBeouf was more unconvincing than the 3D/CGI effects.

I liked the first one in a dumb summer blockbuster kind've way. I had fun.

But I found it didn't last after the first two viewings.

As for Rosie vs. Megan it doesnt matter at all because there's no difference in their characters really. They're both just Shia the Beef's inexplicably hot girlfriend. They dont even really address Megan Fox being gone and this other girl suddenly being there.

That's what my thoughts were when I saw it in theaters. Haven't seen it since. Still it's shorter running time is why I rank it ahead of 3.

Pretty much, yup. They play it like they've been together for a long time. And the eye rolling stuff like "she's the one". laugh

Dude, it sounded exactly like Hans Zimmer's scores for Batman. laugh It was very distracting.

If I may, I would like to recommend you try and get a hold of IDW Publishing's "Classic Transformers Vol. 1". It contains issues 1-16 of the original Transformers comic that was designed to promote the toyline (predating even the cartoon). It's clearly meant for kids but still eons better storytelling than Bayformers. Issues 1-4 are really what the first movie should have been.

I unexpectedly enjoyed the first one when I unexpectedly saw it - me and a mate went planning to see something else but the screening was full, so we saw it an enjoyed it. Haven't watched the others, and I dont really plan to. ;)

Though in terms of Lebeouf, there's always HOLES. That's (the) one fine disney live action film. 8)

That's the only film of Lebeouf that I like. I read the novel sometime ago which was unsurprisingly better than the film itself.

I didn't think the 3D complimented the film. There's the really awesome stunt with a bunch of paratroopers gliding down Chicago, it's a fantastic sequence but the 3D would fool one into thinking it was fake, it just doesn't help.

I think the best thing about the 3D was it forced Bay to shoot his scenes with a bit wider angles and without so many sudden cuts. You can almost tell what's going on.

Pretty funny, though the author seems to be taking some creative license with what he thinks/says are "plot holes."
