Revenge of the Fallen

Ok, I admit I just went to see Megan Fox, but it was surprisingly good. Just like the first Transformers flick, this one is filled with explosions, and robot fu, and lots of military personnel and equipment getting jacked up - and that's just the first 10 minutes! As much I want to HATE Michael Bay (he is responsible for Pearl Harbor and both of the Bad Boys movies), I have to say that he got this one right. He seems to really understand how the whole giant robot/teenage boy/hot girlfriend/special forces/crazy parents/misguided bureaucrat thing goes together. This one has a bit more rough language than the first one, and a bit more skin. Perhaps the third one should be rated R, and there could be a Decepticon hiding in the shower with Ms. Fox (a boy can dream, right?).

There are no surprises in this film - it steals liberally from Star Wars, Terminator, the Matrix, Fifth Element, Stargate, and even a little bit from Species - but it's still quite entertaining. You could do worse with your summer movie dollar. Also, if you are a Bumblebee fan, he is certifiably bad-ass in this one.

...If I venture that Megan Fox isn't that hot, will I be lambasted mercilessly?

Okay, okay, stupid question.

No, not mercilessly. You are simply wrong; sorry.

Mayren,

I really have only one request for the next movie - MORE STARSCREAM!

I could barely decide between overdose on prescription drugs and malpractice. Looking at his med list I couldn't help look up all the contraindications in my drug manual. Holy flippin cheezburgers batman!

I haven't seen the movie yet, but anything with more Starscream is definitely win. Starscream was always my favorite of the Decepticons.

I always felt that Megatron shouldn't have ever been in charge. But, alas, brains hardly ever beats out brawn.

Herr Doktor,

I'm sure his blood was an interesting pharmaceutical cocktail... perhaps that's why they are saying that the toxicology tests may take a month to complete.

Sci Fi Heroine: Can I come sit at your table? Megan Fox is alright looking, but not hot enough to make up for the aggressively stupid and offensive bullshit she keeps rambling on about.

Mayren said...

ok i loved Starscream in the cartoons too... but dammit he's ugly in the movie version AND not NEARLY underhanded enough.. i mean Starscream is Always looking for a way to oust megatron.... dammit i need him more nefarious. he's like my favorite bad guy next to SoundWave

Mayren said...

ok ok... the reason i love soundwave is ...
the original toys from hasbro were badassery. Soundwave not only transformed but inside his boombox chest you had 2 (or 3?)tape cassettes just like the cartoon. one transformed to the panther, the other to a mini robot. these were his spies to send out and run errands.. I thought that there were 3 though; i'm not sure anymore but i thought the 3rd was a wolf like critter? dunno.

Mayren,

Checkout this Soundvave thread... :)
