The outside of a skyscraper is the best place to hide the key component of your evil teleporter device. Oh, and while you're at it, why don't you make that component glow red so that it won't stand out to your enemies. (0) Comments
While the Autobots learned Earth's languages through the World Wide Web, their former leader - who's been on the cusp of death for decades - will automatically be able to communicate in English upon being revived. (2) Comments
When everything you need for your evil master plan is on the far side of the moon, it would be foolish to execute your plan from the moon. Instead, teleport all your stuff to a major US city. (0) Comments
Knowing that he was going to betray OP and the 'Bots, Sentinel Prime decides not to take the Matrix of Leadership - the greatest source of power left in existence - when it's offered? Uh, with instincts like that, it's no wonder his leadership wasn't that successful. (0) Comments
So, in Michael Bay's mind, the plot works like this.
Megatron wants the AllSpark; AllSpark is destroyed, except for shards that apparently EVERYBODY KEEPS FINDING. Then he helps the Fallen get the Matrix, but Optimus gets it instead. And BEFORE that, he arranged to rendezvous with Sentinel at the moon. But he needed the Matrix, which he didn't have- and if he had gotten it, it would've been given to the Fallen. So either he let Optimus win, or he's spent a WHOLE lotta time thinking up this brilliant scheme. And for a guy who dies almost EVERY MOVIE, it doesn't seem like he'd be able to do that. (0) Comments
Don't worry about missing it - I just followed the development of this movie WAY too closely... disappointing last minute name changes, and frankly, Q wasn't half as cool as Wheeljack is supposed to be.
Of course, simply being the "messenger" in a galactic war between two advanced robot-alien factions isn't too shabby a position. It's way better than "innocent bystander that Megatron flicked into a taxi". (1) Comments
No matter how many medals you have, no matter how many times you save the world, that whole "FBI was searching for you" thing is gonna really throw a monkeywrench in the ol' getting hired thing. (0) Comments
Indeed. Megatron has a habit of hooking up with Primes who have turned evil. What for? It takes 3 movies for Megatron to be damaged enough that Optimus can beat him in a fair fight, whereas Optimus annihilates the Fallen and Sentinel in a matter of seconds.
Sam has a brilliant life - he's got a job, lives in a nice apartment, has a girlfriend, has a car, loving parents, robot buddies; but he'd prefer to throw that all away to scream, run around and be a potential target for Decepticons. (0) Comments
I'd have to agree with Mom, you annoying prick - you got two world class hotties - don't count on getting a third. At least, not without another movie franchise and a sympathetic casting director. (0) Comments
Despite your geeky looks, bad hair day, and busting a crystal lamp in the Oval Office foyer, all you need to pick up the rich, British Embassy hottie is a medal from Obama and a finger-point-gun maneuver. (0) Comments
So - Sentinel Prime's Autobots were getting their butts kicked so bad that he had to resort to dealing with Megatron, yet he picks a fight with Megs over the difference between "working FOR him" and "working WITH him"? That's ballsy, dude... (0) Comments
Frenzy - beheaded (twice). Ravage - spine ripped out his butt (ouch). Laserbeak - head shot off with a cannon. I don't think being one of Soundwave's minions is all that great a profession. (0) Comments
Epps is pretty gung-ho about kickin' some Decepticon ass up until it's time to actually get into the battlezone. And, before that, he took a job watching a launch pad!? Yep - that guy's a wuss. (1) Comments
Referring to the kid that a) killed Megatron with the Allspark, and b) resurrected the only Autobot capable of defeating the Fallen as simply a "messenger" means that a certain NSA Director didn't thoroughly read her briefings... (1) Comments
If you see the person you are talking to is suddenly scared shitless and makes a funny face when he looked something behind you, don't get suspicious and certainly don't investigate. It can't be important, can it? (0) Comments
You can stop space missions by making up numbers so they look too expensive, even if the missions were to gain access to priceless alien secrets. Apparently Bay thinks the same economic rules that applies to cruise ships work here too. (0) Comments
Decepticons execute their defeated and surrendered foes while they are begging for their lives because Decepticons are evil; while Optimus murders his defeated foe while he begs to be spared because he is heroic and noble. WTF Bay? (0) Comments
