To be fair to Bay, he's spent a lot more time professionally and personally with Megan Fox than any of us ever will.

Count your blessings.

What.

I used to grant Bay a fair amount of leeway based pretty much on what Darryl said earlier in the thread but that is just dogshit. Fuck that guy.

It's odd. I have expected both of the Transformers movies to suck, and both times I've been pretty entertained. Not by shit blowing up so much as by the simple characters! I realised just recently that, when I feel in the mood for movies about things that go boom, I'm not really looking for explosions (because I've become desensitized to them after all these years of explosions). Rather I'm looking for simple and fun characterisation and a simple and fun plot.

Both the Transformers movies delivered that to me, and so I was perfectly happy to have paid the ticket-price. I just wish they'd had fewer and less messy fight-scenes with the robots in the second movie. I liked the humans, and I think the main actors did an acceptable job with what they had. Cute couples :o

Tbh, I do think it was lame of Megan Fox to shit on her own movie, esp. because it shows a lack of respect for and loyalty towards hard-working people that she'd spent a lot of time with. That was rather immature.

Am I the only one who thinks Megan Fox has a really mind numbing expression on her face all of the time that makes you feel dumber by the second?

Let's be fair.  Odds are good that that's not her fault.  Imagine what you would look like after months of trying not to let Bay know that you think he's a shit-hack.

Or not. It's more spending months thinking about how famous she will be, which is probably more the case with Megan Fox. I think she may have just read some reviews and figured out that most people don't like Bay, so maybe it would be clever to jump on that bandwagon.

ITT we ascribe intentions to someone none of us will never know based on our personal opinions of the way she presents herself to the outside world though mass media.

I sound entirely judgmental. I'm over it. I'm just bitter that no one even cares anymore about seeing actors with talent, or roles with depth. I wish more actors would actually work hard at characters.

People do care. Transformers is a vapid summer blockbuster but otherwise we've had a rather a nice run of movies in the last few years. It's perhaps a bit disconcerting that things like Kung Fu Panda can push more tickets than Wall-E or Up! but it's not really something worth getting upset about.

Really the most egregious thing about the article linked on this page is the fact that it refers to Michael Bay as an "auteur."

If it weren't for Michael Bay, I could have never laughed my ass off along to this piece of pure hilarity: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRS90V8BQGo


Has Shia LaBarf ever played a character he didn't render completely insufferable by either horrible acting or being very dedicated when it comes to play douchy roles (can't really tell)? After having seen Transformers, Indy 4 and Eagle Eye I avoid movies he has a major part in.

And Megan Fox is really meeh if not buuh.

I thought it was the worst part. They had a perfectly good gag that for once only got funnier with increasingly absurd escalation, and then at the end they threw in a completely gratuitous and pointless blow-job joke coupled to a really bad pun.

Yeah, me too.  Remind me when Megan Fox received an Academy Award as well as three Golden Globes, as well as countless nominations for awards (hottest woman aside).  Oh, and when she actually acted in a movie.

Thornton should have gotten more screen-time in Eagle Eye, he was still quite badass.

I had doubts about Transformers 2 from the get-go. The trailer quite LITERALLY had 1 line of dialogue and it was from Optimus Prime. Everything else was fighting and a splosions.
