    Let me start by saying that DoTM is a much better film than Revenge of The Fallen. Optimus Prime is a fully realized badass, Megan Fox is gone and the action is a lot better. More importantly we see a bigger focus on the ones who matter most: The Transformers.

    One issue I had with with the film however was the length. At 2hr 36min there is some fat that can be trimmed off. The climactic action scene,while enjoyable, felt repetitive in parts.

    I saw it in 3D at 10pm last night - I'm still unsure of this whole 3D thing but DoTM looked GREAT in it. The best use of 3D since Avatar, maybe even rivaling it. If you're going to see it, see it in 3D.

    I'll post a lengthier bit on the movie when I have more time.

    So despite the fact that the other two sucked badly, you still went to an early showing of it?

    Did you just say Megan Fox NOT being in the movie is a good thing?

    Glad she's gone. I was always weirded out how the guy could be with someone as hot as a Megan Fox. She's just too hot. So, where's the realism there?
    The relationship believability was hurting the overall verisimilitude. IMO, at least.

    but the talking robot cars from planet Cybertron? :bigup: OH YEAH!

    You act like you aren't speaking the truth.

    You think they sucked. I enjoyed them...Well, the first one. And I just saw First Class and figured why not sneak into the showing of DoTM.

    And yes, Megan Fox being gone is a good thing. Poor acting and she really isn't anything special in the looks department. She has porn star eyes.

    That's what I see every time.
    I was going to ask Lethean if we get any killer Pink Floyd tracks with Optimus Prime and Shia Labeouf. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BgHlupEdtzQ But then I got high. High on life, and cocaine. mostly cocaine.

    edit: all cocaine.

    edit: heroine

    edit: ok, jenkem :(

    Optimus Prime: Together we stand, divided we fall, we fall, we fall, we fall....

    I fail to see how that's a bad thing... Has GR changed me? I used to be different you know, for when i was a child I caught a fleeting glimpse out of the corner of my eye. I turned to look but it was gone, I cannot put my finger on it now. The child is grown, the dream is gone and IIIIIIIIIIIIIiiiiii have become comfortably numb *cue amazingly amazing guitar solo*

    The first one was very watchable, and I think enjoyable. I think people hate on it because the second was so bad, it tarnished anything Michael Bay touches. He's like an M. Night now.

    The DOTM is just slightly less bad than ROTF. It's worth watching if you just want to watch mind numbing entertainment, which is what I went into it expecting.

    And a guy with Shia Laboeufs (sp?) personality in the movies could get any vag he wanted. If you can make a girl laugh, you can make a girl spread her legs.

    I guarantee there was a copyright issue there, because no, no you are not.

    I thought it was really cool, but it was too long. By the end, I was kind of bored seeing giant robots fight. Yeah, that's what I said. There's a reason why action movies are only an hour and a half long.

    Megan Fox is married to Brian Austin Green so she clearly would sleep with just about anyone. Take that B.A.G.

    True, except when Jazz was all YO YO WUD UP HOMIE, I cringed. Scatman Crothers would be rolling in his grave.

    So I just watched Transformers 1 for the first time last week, thinking maybe I'd watch them both before the 3rd. I had very low expectations but I thought it was pretty terrible. The 2nd movie is even worse? Because like, damn.
