Ok, so this is going to be a short piece on the TF-franchise with Bay at the helm. I just wanted to talk a bit about the comic reliefs he so annoyingly had to have in the trilogy. I’ll be taking on 3 reliefs, one from each movie, in order to keep myself from getting angry again.
For starters, in the first movie… what the hell was he thinking when he made Optimus Prime act like some kind of child on christmas when Sam’s searching for the glasses? Seriously, the mightiest leader of all time and he can’t even wait for 5 minutes while he goes in and get them? That annoyed the crap out of me when I saw it the first time. I heard people all over the movietheatre laughing but I took it as an insult. If anything, Optimus is the most patient being in the universe.
And then we have Revenge of the Fallen. Seriously, a nutsack on a robot? Again, all over the movietheatre people were laughing. Sure, I might have giggled a bit at first, but in retrospect, I can not find a single good reason for having it in the movie. I’ve talked to some of my fellow TF-fan friends and they all say the same thing: “It’s there for Simmons to have something funny to say, that’s all.” . But in all seriousness, Simmons had enough comic reliefs already!
For the third one…. Ken Jeong… Need I say more? An annoyance beyond redemption. I just wanted to get up out of my seat, take the first flight out to the US, and punch that litte asian man in the face for agreeing to those stupid things. That kind of behavior is suitable for a Harold & Kumar-kind of movie, NOT in Transformers!
Now that I got that of my chest, I can go back to finish the real thing!
So until next post…… Peace out hombrés!
