This special movie review brings my brother Miles in front of the camera, as we discuss the newest cinematic abomination created by the shit-flinging monkeychild Michael Bay.

Part 2

    Finally! Someone out there agrees with me on just how bad these movies are! They’re not good if you want a good movie, and they’re not good if you just want a stupid action movie. They’re just pure fail.

    Great review.

    Children always applaud to movies for some reason, it’s like there’s some kind of applause instinct. Now, if anyone older than 12 was applauding, that’s just weird.

    Hey guys, great review. I’m really happy to see that you guys feel the same way I do about Michael Bay noisefest’s. I was dragged to the theater to see the first movie by a friend and I hated it, and I wasn’t going to see this second one, but this review really sets it in stone. By the way, it’s cool to see your brother, Spoony. I have to say, it’s cool to see that you two seem to have a good relationship.

    By the way, SBaby, if you’re talking about Spoony and his brother, you obviously have no idea what you’re talking about. Just because they didn’t like these absurd movies doesn’t mean they aren’t fans of the series.

    I take no responsibility for this movie, as I’ve never seen the first one and don’t care to see either, Not after Pearl Harbor, screw Bay.

    This was the wrong Hasbro toyline for Michael Bay to make into a movie. I went to see the movie yesterday. I had nothing else to do, but still nearly walked out several times. The constant juvenile sexual references made me cringe. Even then, while staring at the huge giant robot balls taking up the center of the screen, I actually thought, “That can’t be what I think it is.” None of it was funny or even titillating, so what’s the point? Was it designed to make 10-year olds laugh? But shouldn’t they NOT be watching that anyways?

    It was just a blur of robot fighting in between scenes filled with vacuous characters that made me feel like all of humanity is on a downward morality-death spiral. I’m still fighting the feeling of sadness for the human condition that it spurred inside of me. I actually felt embarrassed for everyone involved in this steaming pile of Hollywood. What makes me feel even worse is that they probably think I’m crazy for feeling that way. One of the things that really just killed me was that the theater was PACKED. I mean, come on. I went into the movie with low expectations and came out with a broken heart for yet another shameless American movie…

    Oh yeah, Megan Fox is the reason why most people attended. I swear.

    I agree completely, Spoony. These movies are a fucking abomination.

    Also, Mike, Uwe Boll still wins in the terrible contest. At least Michael Bay has a budget behind him.

    Wow. It sounds like this is BAD. It sounds like Bay tried to fuck up? Has he even seen any Transformers cartoons? This movie is to Transormers what Episode 1, 2, and the CGI movie did to Star Wars. Totally, 100% fucked it over.
    Thanks, Bay. You’re now my #1 worst dic. You are even worse then Lucas.
    FYI, why would I pay $8 to see half-naked Magan Fox when I can see nude pics of her online for free?

  • johnnyfog

    I haven’t seen it yet, but my friend didn’t like it. And *his* friends didn’t like it. And these guys go to every car fetish movie and love every minute. The ones who paid to see EVERY Fast & Furious movie. These people are *not* easy to disappoint!

    (He even developed a crush on Megan Fox because she was in the first one).

    But 3 hours? Really? It’s not like a superhero franchise where the actors will leave after 3 movies, so you have to cram in all the fanservice you can. It’s CG!

    Wow, that interview was almost as long as the movie. Ok, not even close.
    After seeing how pissed you are about this movie, I’m wondering if I should see it with my friends (who liked the first movie and are going to see it whatever I say) or commit social suicide by staying home and watching Bab5 DVDs.

    That was great Spoony. Was hoping you were going to do something with Dr. Insano at the end, but still great.

    Your brother is right though, it will probably be the highest grossing movie this year, and that is bullshit.

  • Emanuel

    If it makes you feel any better Noah, I’m not going to see this movie – not legally anyway. I might check it out online just to see what could possibly make you -this- angry, but they’re not getting -my- money.

  • TheRussianGestapo

    Wow. I’m so glad that British audiences rarely applaud. For the record, when the Spoony One decides to enact his painful wrath-based vengeance on this world with a flamethrower, I was out drinking the night this film was released (and I never saw the first one)! And now I probably never will…except on DVD maybe. I can put it next to the original Casino Royale (which I guiltily really enjoy).

    Anyway, marvellous to see Miles make an appearance, although I am sure he’s freaked out by complete strangers referring to him by his first name. I could really feel the brotherly love, and it’s definitely more healthy to share the hate.

    Yeah, the movie was pretty bad, but I had nothing better to do that day, and just adding films to my brain seemed like a good excuse. But just watching Spoony and his brother tear this movie apart is comedy gold.

    Me and my friend were praising god when we thought one of those twin robots died, but when it turned out he lived, we just looked at each other and we almost lost it. But of course the theather was packed and we didn’t want to be looked at. The audience was also laughing the entire time, and the entire film was so unfunny, I facepalmed myself at least 3 times.

    God, that was an annoying 3 hours.

  • CaptainFreetime

    I saw this movie, but I refused to pay money. A friend who works at the movie theater brought me using his free passes. And I still feel ripped off. I didn’t pay MONEY and I wanted my money back. Spoony, you sir hit the nail on the head, and kept hammering it in. I still don’t think though, that this is harsh enough. The movie is SCUM. I would rather watch STAR WARS EPISODE ONE at this point than deal with that. Anyone who reads this, DO NOT WATCH THIS MOVIE. Not pirated, not free with movie passes, and especially not with money. I’m pulling selective amnesia on this the second I hit submit comment. This murders transformers, and I keep an open mind with new things in it. I loved beast wars, I love Trandsformers animated, and I saw the Unicron trilogy. My inner Transformers nerd died from this movie. Rot in hell, Michael Bay

    Ehhh. I saw it at midnight too. And I’m not much of a moviegoer, but I was a fan of transformers when I was about 8 and now that I’m 15, it’s nice to get back into it. That said, it wasn’t the kind of movie I’d stay up until midnight to see (again =P)

  • NeoSpriggan

    Well, heres one person you more than convinced not to see this movie.
    In fact, about halfway through the first video i was hunting for a torrent of it. I personally didnt mind the first film, it was at least entertaining, but even half of the stuff you mentioned about this one made me cringe as my inner child was beaten soundly by Micael Bay’s perversion of the franchise.

    I salute you Spoony for warning me, noble hero that you are.

    Didn’t see it, didn’t see the first one. Don’t care to see either because I’m not an idiot :P Though I can’t blame people for seeing the first one (too much).

    But I do have the scores to both movies composed by Steve Jablonsky. They’re both horrible and stand for everything that is wrong with movie music today.

    Don’t worry, I don’t plan on watching it anyway. There are remake’s and worst movie now a day’s that I’m not interested now, but thank you for the review, now I’ll know it sucks.

    P.S.
    Is your bother is older or younger than you?

    Spoony, I’ve watched a lot of your videos, and overall, I really like your stuff. This one was just bad and not because of your opinion. You hated the movie. Fine. You’re entitled to your opinion and have the right to voice it. You just went too far by continually insulting people who do. You didn’t like it and you have every right not to. I did like it and i have every right to. What you don’t have the right to do is to verbally bash people who liked it. That’s just wrong.

  • NaclynE

    Ive been a long time fan of the comics and all i can say is that i am glad Spoony is saveing me a trip to the movie theatre.
    He sounds like he pointed out alot of things in the movie sequal which to me never ever happens in the comics. One of the things he pointed out is that they can morph into humans and metal objects n stuff besides vehicles and robots. In the comics they sorta can turn into humans but not to travel around like normal but only as a fake image to people. Like in a scene in the first one where the helicopter lands on a pad and theres a human pilot. The ship was like “Oh ok. we have another helicopter onboard” n stuff. next thing you know is that the whole thing (includeing the human guy) turn into a giant robot and starts blasting the ship to shmids. That I was fine with in one but they F*’d that up in 2 it sounds like.
    The jokes sound waaaaaaaay unessarly over the top and Obviously they wanted to amp up Megan Foxes sex appeal (Go figure. If you saw Michael Bays version of MIAMI VICE there were like sex scenes every minute so go fig on what he wanted to do with Megan Fox).
    I have seen the first one and hoped it was going to be played as a disastor movie with giant robots with ahint of being played out like one of the comic parts where the government employed 3 special members (A woman that was able to zap the autobots/decepticons and head mess them,a juggernaut like guy but less powerful, and a third guy but I couldn’t remember him that well). But instead they screwed all that up and played it as a lame-o alien invasion thing. It sounds like they made things ten times as worse as well in the sequal.
    There have been a rare amount of transformers with goatee’s, mustaches and beards in the comics. the noteable I can popup is Wreckgar from the Transformers ANIMATED movie where he had the Fu-Man-Chu style look. Yeah he was preatty annoying in the movie in a way and was voice acted by the real fast paced voiced guy who did ads on tv.

    Honestly I have 0 interest in the movie still and don’t plan on watching it. I rather see PUBLIC ENEMIES next week.

    Ive been a long time fan of the comics and all i can say is that i am glad Spoony is saveing me a trip to the movie theatre.
    He sounds like he pointed out alot of things in the movie sequal which to me never ever happens in the comics. One of the things he pointed out is that they can morph into humans and metal objects n stuff besides vehicles and robots. In the comics they sorta can turn into humans but not to travel around like normal but only as a fake image to people. Like in a scene in the first one where the helicopter lands on a pad and theres a human pilot. The ship was like “Oh ok. we have another helicopter onboard” n stuff. next thing you know is that the whole thing (includeing the human guy) turn into a giant robot and starts blasting the ship to shmids.

    God, I laughed so fucking hard at that. Maybe it’s just because I haven’t seen either of the Transformers films, yet I have had that foul taste of Michael Bay lingering with me. I knew all he was capable of, I mean, man, I remember the fucking Xbox ad in The Island, that was just AWFUL, but the way you and your brother describe it, the film sounds so DREADFUL! I’d love to see it just to laugh, but I think I’d lose some sort of innocence by subjecting myself to it.

    Before I saw this review I didn’t plan to watch this movie. If a movie like this can grind your gears to this extent Spoony, well that sparked my interest. Since I have free access to see whatever I want at my local cinema I will go see it this weekend, no money paid and no money lost.

    It was nice to see someone else on the screen with you, that’s a first if I recall correctly. Perhaps this will become a regular thing?

    With all this talk about hating mankind I was expecting an appearance from Dr. Insano and his brother to come out and declare war on humanity again… WITH SCIENCE!!!!!

    Listening to this got me thinking; Did anyone else keep hearing about the primes and keep thinking “LIBERTY PRIME!!!!”

    Also, the IMAX theater got out after mine, I thought. So I don’t know, it might be longer.

    For those that aren’t aware, Shia did not actually LOSE his finger, however he did SEVERELY injure it. Just thought I’d mention it, cuz a lot of people are unaware that he didn’t have it amputated.

    As far as music, I loved the soundtrack, mostly because they played all my favorite songs from 21st Century Breakdown. Oh well. That’s part 1.

    Oh if you like to know how transformers are made here’s how

    frist they build a protoform, the ones in the eggs, these guys can be turned into anything, if you take the spark of an older transformer like Jetfire and pull it in a protoform it turns into Jetfire.

    now these protoforms are mosty lifeless blanks so they needed the all-spark or the Matrix (depends on the comic) to give them a spark, like a human each spark in different and shapes the protoform into whatever.

    However this doesn’t give them sentients they need a massive super computer called Vector Sigma which is conected to the will of their god Primus to give it to them.

    I will go behind you 100% by saying, fuck these movies who prostitute the art that is cinema – in the process, killing it off. Yeah, . The first one was a HUGE ripoff as it tells us humans are awesome and the robots secondary at best. huh, no and ULTRA no,

    No, Noah didn’t go too far; at all. He just took a stand against something that is being senselessly destroy for the sake of a quicker buck than the speed of light.

    Thank you for confirming I won’t spend my money on that and… hope you and Miles got a refund, somehow.

    I am glad someone else besides me shares the opinion that the people who are truly to blame for Michael Bay’s Transformers and Michael Bay’s Transformers 2: Baysplosion Boogaloo, are in fact the people who went to see the movie in the first place (critics notwithstanding), and (somehow), LIKED it. First movie, fine, I’ll accept that (given how much everyone hates it in retrospect it’s kinda funny). But everything I’ve heard about this movie leads me to believe it is possibly the dumbest movie not made by the “______ Movie” guys. Hell I’m not even that big a Transformers fan (I mean I missed G1 mostly and basically grew up on Beast Wars, I’m not even sure if I count), but as a movie person, I’m amazed something this stupid and offensive made it to the screen. But hey, the “fans” asked for it.

    I have never been more dismayed to find out that this movie somehow broke a box office record. Titanic even, I could understand even though it makes me agitated by all its historical innacuracies and taking way too damn long to get to the part I care about (ship sinks, omg spoilers you guys). But a movie being made by a bunch of people who could care less about the source material (and thus were doing it for only the money) doing this well? It defies convention. Course I shouldn’t be surprised, the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still that had nothing to do with the original movie (much less its message) managed to be ridicuously profitable. But it’s not like it set a record. Maybe I’m overreacting, but oh well. Someone once told me it wasn’t a legitimate gripe to say Michael Bay was wrecking whatever credibility or enjoyment the older fans of Transformers do. Well all I have to do now is point out that before Michael Bay, we never had to see Devastator’s giant clanging combi-trucknuts, and leave it at that. :P

    …yeah, you need to die now.

    True, Michael Bay only seems to pump out crap, but I liked it based on sheer entertainment value. I went in with high expectations and walked out with every single one met. Do I think this was the best film ever made? No, but I do put it on the same tier as Star Trek, because I went in to both expecting to entertained, and I was.

    Spoony, you are the MAN, but try to be a little more open minded when watching movies released during the Summer season.

    p.s. KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULL WAS NOT THAT BAD!!!

    This reminds me a lot of your Indiana Jones rant/review, which is what introduced me to your work. I found the “better or worse” to be particularly good, especially since I have trouble getting through the MST3K Manos. Make sure those tickets are at least a tax deduction.

    The thing is this movie did not have to be bad all the prequel comics and the comic adaption were pretty good.

    In the end this was frat boys present transformers crass crude in rude where awesome dude!

    I mean if these guys wrote star wats an Ewok would have raped lieah.

    Darth vaders big reveal would have gone like this

    Darth Vader Luke I am your father!

    I liked the first one, didn’t like this one, but I have discrepancies with you review:

    – Frenzy (“the boombox Decepticon”) was not the one who broke into the Allspark vault, he’s long dead– you see his head in the Sector Seven guy’s secret bunker under the deli. The ball bearings were individual robots (likely Insecticons) that could combine.
    – Prentenders are from G1 and can take human forms. It still raises the question as to why they would still use vehicle forms, but you still should know this isn’t a Bay invention.

The four hours and forty minutes it took me to beat it sounds more enjoyable then the two plus hours running time to sit through the movie. Quick side not of the Decepticon Chick: I’m betting they came up with that part from the Transformers series: Beast Wars except instead of a wild animal they used a human being.

    The first Transformers movie was one of the most wretched things I’ve ever seen in a theater, so that was more than enough to keep me from seeing this one. Hearing about the movie, though, does make me wanna watch it at least once… I think all of us MSTie nerds are game to slog through a bad movie at least one time.

    Hey now. I didn’t see the first one till they started airing it on HBO. And I certainly don’t plan on paying to see this.

    But yeah, you’re right. Fuck the people who actually paid to see the first and actually came back for seconds. There was not a moment while watching the first on TV that I didn’t think that the plot was immensely stupid. I’m not really sure why I even stuck with it.

    And the audience applauded? Seriously? I’ve never seen people applaud in a theater in my life, even for a great movie.

    I did not even go see this crime against art, the first transformers was the first movie I ever walked out of and THIS IS WORSE?!!! Good Lord!! To everyone who watched this and applauded I wish you a swift and painful death. Shia La Buttfuck is one of the worst actors I have ever seen, he makes Keanu Reeves look like Marlon Brando and Michael Bay is a douche. Anyone who thinks this is good should go watch Disaster Movie, (probably the worst hour of my life ever spent).

    I consider Alexander to be my personal 3rd worst movie of all time, probably because I study history. After that we have Battlefield Earth, and then I go with AVP: Requiem. You have to understand, I also factor in cinematography and pacing

    (It’s just glaringly bad to me when you have awkward pacing in a movie, it’s not the run time per say, it’s just pace of the action. I actually think the early New York scenes in Peter Jackson’s King Kong are paced way too fast and look how long it is!).

    I’ll torrent this, see what I think, but I get the feeling that Alexander is going to slip back another slot. Oh, and if you wanted to know there is one non-angled shot in Battlefield Earth, the very last one.

    (It’s just glaringly bad to me when you have awkward pacing in a movie, it’s not the run time per say, it’s just pace of the action. I actually think the early New York scenes in Peter Jackson’s King Kong are paced way too fast and look how long it is!).

    I’ll torrent this, see what I think, but I get the feeling that Alexander is going to slip back another slot. Oh, and if you wanted to know there is one non-angled shot in Battlefield Earth, the very last one.

    When you brought up movies to compare to Transformers 2, I expected you to bring up Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (especially because you thought that too was worse than the first Transformers). Was this accidental or did you purposely leave it out (for whatever reason, although I would be interested as to why)?

    Hey, I liked TF2…

    Ok, no I didn’t. I am just a huge Tf fan, and was hoping that Bay could make something better then the first. I was wrong.

    Severely wrong.

    After awhile I was just constantly checking my watch to see if/when the movie was going to end, because it seemed to drag on forever.

    Speaking of dragging on forever, what the fuck was up with the scene where Spike is going to give the matrix to OP? You can clearly see that Prime is like 20 yards away fro Spike, and then he starts running and….the fuck? An hour goes by and Spike still hasn’t reached Prime.

    This movie pissed me off to no end.

    I hadn’t intended to see either of these movies either way, because I just plain and simply have other things I’d rather waste my money on. Now, if this series of cinematic messes that Michael Bay is slapping the Transformers name on had come out twenty years ago and been animated, I might have been interested. As is, though, I think I’d rather spend the $8 on getting more candy someplace.

    And I liked seeing the Antwiller brothers working together like this. You two actually look and act like brothers. I just wish me and my kid brother were like that. With us, it’s kinda hard to tell unless you watch for a while or somebody says.

    Anyway, great review, guys. Looking forward to more, and maybe seeing Scarlett in something, too.

    Did you ever see Benjamin Button? Honestly a completely shameless ripoff of Forrest Gump scene by scene… from the SAME DIRECTOR. It’s just three hours of characters I completely didn’t care about, it does Forrest Gump’s basic plot even worse on the second go around, plus you have the added squick that about half the time they’re “in love” they’re 20+ years apart from each other.

    Honestly, I gulped about a liter and a half of Coke just so I could go get refills three times and have an excuse to go pee so I wouldn’t watch that movie. Still not as bad as You Don’t Mess with the Zohan, though.

  • ajla

    So the movie was hit-and-miss?

    Spoony, thank you. Normally, I am thrilled to go see a movie after a bad review (Masochism or contrariness, I don’t know). Here, I am fairly certain this review is more amusing than I would find the movie, even given all of the Transformers stuff I recognized that you had problems with.

    I would like to hear you and your brother again. His reserved personality contrasts yours hilariously.

    P.S. Oddly enough, my brother liked Revenge of the Fallen.

    I didnt think any rant would be funnier than indy, buy Oh my Jeezus this was awesome. By the way, I’ve been wondering what you’re brother would be like, he’s not bad. Almost as good as burton, Maybe like once every couple months he could pop on screen too, when he’s avalible. My least favorite movie as of now is Wanted.

    Never in my life have i seen people exaggerate a movies problems than right here. This movie wasn’t oh so horrible like people have made it out to be. It was a good followup to the first movie and addressed everything people wanted from the first movie.
    You got TONS of Transformer vs. Transformers action(specifically the Forest fight and the desert battles)
    Less human BS to an extent.
    AND
    We finally got to see some dialogue between the Transformers themselves more specifically the Decepticons.
    Its was cool to finally see the relationship between Megatron and Starscream be just like the cartoon.
    There was tons of nods to the G1 era.

    Hey, I didn’t go through all of the messages so I don’t know all that’s been stated. I whole heartedly agree with a lot of things you said. But, I just want to correct you on a couple of things. First, the teleportation thing is the Space Bridge which is clearly stated. That is in the original series. Season 2 I think. I was pretty impressed how they incorporated it. Though, the consistent time of day thing is just absurd. Also, the hottie Decepticon was not made up by the studio. She’s a Pretender which apparently are characters from the comics. So, you can blame them for that one.

  • Sockoman

    …. Ok. earlier, while watching your Indy 4 rant, i stated that Micheal Bay couldn’t have screwed up Transformers. Hell, its the last comment.I may dislike Bay, but fanboy-ism for giant transforming robots that beat on each other really guided me to say I would like it, and was excited to see it. I should have known better. Really. This movie was…. eh. I sadly can’t hate this movie, no matter how hard I want to. But, your right. It’s so terribly fucked up it kinda hurts. Racism? Shameful. Comedic relief? They had.. one good joke. And I think even that may be giving them too much credit. Action scenes? Fortunatly, I wasn’t sitting in the second row, but even when you see it all, it takes some time to process. For me, it really strikes me as Bay bumping down his expectations and target audience to the new generation, moreso than the adults paying for the tickets. Which is weird, because of all the remakes Bay could make, this should have been the easiest one to do.

    But again, as a handful of posters above are saying, it does do attempt to do what alot of people bitched about being left out of the first film.Mainly, trying to flesh out the backstory of most of the characters that got sort of abandoned in the first film. With the exception of Sam ( and, even this is kind of a strectch) Every human was comedic relief. Cut out all their scenes, and its a akward looking CG film. You just can’t please everyone. So… really, it reminds me alot about what people said going into Watchmen. It’s a film that maybe should have never been made.

    If i have to review it, i would give it a passing grade, by its close, at 5/10. I probably would buy it, being the big nerd I am. But, I wouldnt see it again in theaters. Once will do. It was pretty, the action scenes, while taking a moment sometimes, were as big and flashy as I know some fans demanded they be.

  • Fiendly

    watching the first movie was one of my worst nightmares. i knew from the trailers it was going to suck, and refused to watch it for months. my friends actually forced me to watch it because they LIKE it, and it was even worse than i had expected. nothing short of certain death could get me to watch the sequel. FOURTEEN comic relief characters, and not a one the least bit funny? that’s a deal-breaker by itself. i bet The Phantom Editor would have a field day with this movie, and even then i doubt it’d be any good. still, an hour of hard-to-follow, ‘meh’ fighting sequences is immeasurably better than three hours of nightmarishly bad characters and writing.

    thanks Spoony for suffering immensely for my entertainment. the “Is Transformers 2 worse than this?” game was very clever

    For the most part I gotta agree with you Spoony, but I gotta disagree with you on Jetfire, the old Decepticon.

Can you really say you didn’t at least crack a smile?

    Transformers and Michael Bay are the true reason why I really fucking hate Hollywood. I was never really a Transformers fan as a kid, and I did plan to see the first one with my friends….until I found out that Bay directed it. I never want to see the second one, I’d rather tear my eyes out with a plastic knife. Just the fact that there is a second one makes me sick to my stomach!

    This proves that Hollywood has gone downhill and hit the shitty bottom, and how bad American cinema really is!

    Can’t blame ME Spoony cause I will NOT go see it. I have been boycotting Hollywood in the theater since Quantum of Solace.

    You are wrong however, when you said that Eragon was ripping off one film but ROTF wasn’t…noooo, it ripped of FOUR films. First theres the “Master Apprentice” star Wars rip off with Megatron and the Fallen not to mention the Revenge of the Sith title rip off. Next, we have the Terminator 3/Species chick as well as the liquid metal Decepticon. Another you forget is Aliens, with the Decepticon eggs that you even mentioned later.

    In all this film for me is WORSE than Battlefiend Earth because it is shorter and at least isn’t full of rip offs.

    Spoony I did enjoy the first one because of the ego soothing feeling it gave to me, if you can call it that. But the sequel was not as good as the first one because of the many things that irk me. A Decepticon transforming to a girl was a bad idea, the twins speaking hood-like was just in bad taste, Simmons butt was gross, dragged out and confusing action scenes wasn’t very entertaining and overall the story didn’t made much an impact on me. I did expect it to be just another mindless summer movie but I did expect at least a bit of substance. The reason why the theater was packed was because of the hype.

    whew, dodged the bullet there. I nearly went to go see this movie not 2 hours ago and decided against it. At an IMAX no less so it would have been more expensive and more crowded…well maybe not more crowded but it still would have sucked. Thanks for the review Spoony and Miles. I’m sorry your fury was so unending and please keep reviewing for us. It saves us the pain of watching or playing it.

  • Beans

    I can never understand how it is that someone can get so worked up over a movie like this. Maybe it comes from being raised on the “pick a random movie of the rental shelf” system of movie viewing, but I find very very few movies that I wouldn’t watch again. Even the ones that I do refuse to watch generally fall under the heading of moral objections (frequent and unnecessary porn scenes, blatantly negative racial imagery{especially the glorification of it}, etc.). While I haven’t watched the second transformers movie I did watch the first when it came out on video and I really don’t remember it as all that bad. Kinda unremarkable but necessarily bad. The same goes for a number of movies you have reviewed, Indiana Jones, Battlefield Earth , AVP, etc. I guess it’s just a different mentality…

    Two notes:

    1) I’d rather watch Eragon, which, boring and redundant as it was, it at least had an easy to follow plot.

    2) On the traveling issues… bare in mind the original G1 cartoon had the autobots drive (DRIVE!) from Oregon to Africa in an hour and a half.

    Anyway, fun review, I liked the two of you reviewing together.

    Funny, everyone is offended about the twin Autobots, everyone, but black people. It’s absolutely HILARIOUS that white people are offended by stereo-types that don’t involve them. Fucking unbelievable.

    The movie was entertaining to me, that’s all that matters, but to say I’m a shitty person for watching it? Fuck you, hard up the ass.

    What ? There were people who got a crush on Megan Fox ? Yeah, she has a great ass, but come on, she’s covered in tattoos, she was on cocaine for fuck’s sake, she’s just a cheap whore.

    Spoony, thank you for doing this review. It saved me the trouble of having to go to the theater with a notepad and a pencil so I could do a point-by-point review of why this movie is terrible (and really, coming from Michael Bay, yes I am very much validated in having made that assumption without seeing it) and argue with my friends who (I am not kidding) came out of the movie saying not only was it good, it was one of their favorite movies ever. I can just link them to this review and say “That!”. Because, if everything you said that is in this movie actually IS in this movie, then it’s terrible. A robot with balls? Dog humping sight gags? Joe Pesci bot humping a girl’s leg with a robot dick? My mind fought desperately to cope with that.

    To the earlier people saying Spoony went too far when he bashed people who like this movie: Grow up. He has every right to do so. Oh no, someone’s making fun of you and insulting your intelligence! Call the Internet Police! If this movie really is as bad as Wing Commander, then EVERYONE should be insulting your intelligence for liking it.

    And to everyone who defends this movie by saying “Cmon, can’t you just stop being so judgemental for a while and enjoy an action flick without expecting so much out of a movie?”…No, I can’t. That’s why it’s A MOVIE! If I wanted to see fight sequences, I’d watch Mixed Martial Arts fighting! Willingly ignoring all the faults of a piece of art and focusing only on one aspect and saying it’s amazing is the exact wrong thing to do. And yes, I think the Twilight analogy goes past the movie and even into the books. They’re horribly written, the characters are cliche and one dimensional, the plot has huge gaping holes, it’s supposedly aimed at a younger audience but it has mature themes and adult aged people eat it up, and it’s a mockery of the original source material! (The original source material for Twilight being not only the vampire mythos she completely fucks up, but pretty much just Anne Rice-who I do like). It just encourages more people to put in less effort into making actual art, and instead lethargizes them into just pushing out cookie-cutter trash that’ll make money.

    In short, Ernest Hemingway really and truly put it best. “If you have a success you have it for the wrong reasons. If you become popular it is always because of the worst aspects of your work. ” People like this because they ignore the gaping problems and just focus in on the pretty effects and fight scenes. If Ernest Hemingway hadn’t shot himself with a shotgun already, he would have done it after seeing his prediction come true in this movie and so many other things.

    The sad thing is I actually know some dudes who fucking liked this movie…
    seriously.

    Talking fully grown men here.

    Anyway, I haven’t seen the movie, but I think I understand enough about it to tell my friends why they are idiots for liking this movie.

    Thanks, Spoony. (And brother.)

  • Sirabhorn

    Hey Spoony, this movie may be really bad. But I have yet to see you do a review of the recent Dragonball movie. That movie is honestly the worst piece of shit I have ever seen. Buuuut it is only about 90 minutes so I guess you could go for the time again. But still, Dragonball was insulting to my human brain. I wonder if Transformers 2 is worse than Dragonball?

    i own the first one, and like any fanboy, there were a couple of things that didn’t set right with me. after hearing that Bay dubbed the stereo frenzy, because he wanted soundwave to be properly done and didn’t support the “big robot-little disguise” physiology (i.e. Megatron turning into a usable gun), i figured i could tolerate him at the helm.

    but fans spoke up, and said that’s where the charm is… we like that a 20 ft robot can turn into a ship that can house his thirty 20 ft comrades. Bay musta heard it, and went batshit fucking insane. oh well, games never got good movies, i guess i’ll never get to see nostalgic shows turned into good movies either.

    after seeing the first movie there was no way in hell that I was going to see the second one because I knew it was gonna be just more of the same shit…no relevant plot, stupid action scenes, horrible acting, and toilet humor. It’s fucking bullshit that most people love these movies….and because they love these movies they are just going to keep making more shitty ass movies. All they need to do now is get Lucas, Spielburg, and Bay together…make transformers 3: the crystal all spark…and you will get the shittiest ass movie ever made and it will still sell millions….unfucking believable!!!!!

    I mean yeah transformers are awesome but these movies are shit and just kill the franchise. There is absolutely no acting required in these movies, which is why Shia LaButtfuck is in these shitty movies cause he can’t act his way out of a paper bag. In fact most of the actors in the movie have barely any acting talent at all…the only thing saving their sorry careers is the big CGI robots which I guess have balls and weiners now….pathetic…

    What the *&$#! From what you and your brother described, it doesn’t even sound like Transformers. I didn’t even watch the first movie and I have no intention of watching the sequel. Thank you and your brother for describing how terrible this movie is. From all the plotholes you guys described, it sounds like a total mind#$*@. I’m still mad at Michael Bay for making the crappy Miami Vice movie. That movie sound have never been made.

    I have been a Transformers fan all of my life. I have seen both how amazing the stories can be and how awful they can be and this is the worst thing that I have ever seen the Transformers name attached to. If they would have taken out all of the sex jokes and bad comic characters then it would have basically been like a long episode of the

    Here are my issues, first off lose Megan Fox, she cannot act her way out of a paper bag. The scenes with her in the beginning were just awful and made me roll my eyes. The robots were more life like then her. I hated The humor, it was crude and childish, mostly from the twins (new Jar Jar).
    I liked Devastator but Alice could have been left out and I was laughing at her more then the stuff that was actually meant to be “funny”. I think Bay was watching Spices when he thought of her. The Transformers are not treated as characters they are mostly props and a few are fully developed characters. I would of loved for the twins to have been taken out and had some of the other transformers get more screen time. Man the more I think about this movie the more it starts to piss me off. I cannot look at Devastator now because now I think about his balls or Wheelie because I think about him humping Megan Fox’s leg. This movie is sexist, raciest and crude. There are two scene with dogs humping, as if one was not enough. There are a few good point but they are far out weighed by the bad, and what is good is something that only long time transformers fans will get.

    This movie is horrible but I think that my ultimate opinion of it can best be expressed by Roger Ebert and what he said about the 1994 movie North. He said:”I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it.”

    I am going to take the advice that Spoony gave the upset Star Trek fans for the awesome movie that they got, I am going to upset for the next couple days, go into a drinking fit and then forget the movies were ever made.

    I was fortunate enough to watch Transformers 2 alongside JJ Abram’s Star Trek in a double header movie feature at the local drive-in for $5. Not to brag but that’s probably why I didn’t mind Transformers 2 that much was because for the price of a rental I watched two new movies, however, everything that was mentioned about Transformers 2 was correct. Even the story didn’t really have a purpose. What annoyed me the most was the fact that there was no hiding Megan Fox in the movie. The whole purpose of her existence was to sex up certain scenes that otherwise wouldn’t be appealing or interesting. And for a franchise that reaches out to the teenie-bopper crowd, thats a big no-no. Also the two characters, Skids and Mudflap, were the most annoying characters in cinema history. Sterotypes that was used in the movie shouldn’t of been used as humor.

    When was said and done, like I said before, I didn’t really mind Transformers 2 because of the low price of admission I paid to get in. If I paid full price ($9) for a ticket then yes I would of set fire to the world and everything in it.

    I would rather READ Battlefield Earth than watch the movie of it. Even if the book is 300 pages too long and all it talks about is banking. The first Transformers movie was horrible and if it took you almost an hour to review how bad it was, then there is no point in wasting my money on that crapfest. Thank you Spoony for telling me beforehand your information is very valuable. Also, Twilight sucks big balls and I can’t believe it won all those awards. Don’t give up on your fellow man just yet, there are still some of us out there that know what is crap and what is not.

    I would disagree i enjoyed the film because it was exactly what i wanted to see

    Giant Robots: Check
    Explosions : Check
    Megan Fox: Check

    What else could you expect. Ive noticed every reviewer complaining about too many explosions not enough plot too much CGI. Its transformers not the fucking Fall. Granted it dragged a little towards the end but one thing im not certain of, how am i an idiot for expecting what i was going to see and you guys are the most intelligent people in the world for being surprised by a sequel of a film you didnt like in the first place having MORE of what you didnt like in the first place? I do normally enjoy your reviews but in my opinion (as that is what this “review” entirely consists of) you dropped the ball.

    Is Spoony turning into the angry video game nerd? I’m not sure what that drink was. . . and the climactic ranting insult of the movie’s fault was much like the nerd’s swearing fugues. Except it was all adjectives that apply to the movie rather than swear words. Good show. :)

    Haha battlefield earth, Oh I’ve seen it, lots. Like atleast 5 times now. Its bad, but hilariously so. Is the version you have the directors cut, In which they throw a guy off a cliff to see if he can fly. I’d easily chose Battlefield earth over any micheal bay film.

    Prety much the only way that anyone could possibly enjoy this film would be if they went to it *just* to see Megan Fox.
    If you wanted a decent film, this clearly isn’t it. If you want robots fighting eachother, the fast-moving camera ruins that. It’s simply chaotic and ugly. If you’re looking for something remotely entertaining…just watch the first one again. This one just copied everything from the first film, very very poorly.
    In short…it was painful to watch, and I really felt like walking out towards the end there. Ugh.

    Hmm…I did watch, and greatly enjoyed the first one. This sounds like all of the “Movie” movies (you know, “Dance Movie”, “Disaster Movie”, etc.) all mashed together with robots included in as an afterthought though.

    Hang on, it had too much hot robot-on-robot action? It had barely enough for my tastes.

    I had been planning to avoid this film, and -maybe- rent it later, but my girlfriend wanted to go, and I’m a nice guy…(Weak excuse, I know.) Anyway, the only way that film could have been any use was if it had been the robot version of 300. You said it yourself; a Transformers film would do well from a storyboard consisting of a guy bashing two action figures together while making fighting sounds.

    It’s okay, Spoony. We feel your pain. It was banal, and full of nonsensical (And worse, unfunny) pieces of humour. It forgot about no less than three characters at least (The twins, who disappeared after fighting the big one, and the little annoying yappy Hispanic “Isn’t it funny, the robot thinks he’s a crack addict?” robot. Maybe more, I can’t remember.) And they’re probably going to try to make another.

    Forgot to add; I thought the cinematography in this one was actually passable. The scene where Optimus beats Megatron, Starscream and Unnamed Decepticon No. 3 about the forest was pretty swifty. I had hopes that the film could live up to the opening sequence, which I found passably cool.

    All I’m gonna say is it’s disappointing that (going by the comments in here) sharing an opinion came down to insulting people who disagree with it, in this case. :/ Usually I glance at them for fun before I click play, and it sounds like this video goes to levels I wouldn’t actually enjoy watching.

    I still love a lot of your stuff but it’s sad to hear you’ve gone by way of vitriol-warrior activity.

    Spoony, i feel your pain. I’ve seen a lot of bad movies in my time, but i just couldn’t bring myself to go watch either Transformers movie. Seeing this review… i regret it not. Keep the truth rolling Spoonman!

    Oh yeah, and more Snively imitations (the whiny werewolf from the Terror TRAX: Track of the Werewolf review). That always makes me *howl* with laughter…. okay bad pun… anyway, more Snively.

    Well, now we know how Dr. Insano got started! It was all Transformers 2.

  • Ubermetalhed

    I saw this yesterday and I feel exactly the same as you Spoony. I nearly walked out of the cinema it was that bad. The only movie i have ever walked out of was Epic movie and this piece of shit was nearly as bad as that. I really liked the first film only really for the robot battles i didnt care for the rest to be honest there was no need for any human characters at all. This film was just atrocious, Bay put more talking shia lebuttfuck crap in it than actual transformer fights, the dialogue was god awful, the jokes were just unfunny and crude, and god damn it was so f’ing long. These are only a few of a hell of a load of things that pissed me off. I really could rant forever about this poor excuse for a film, especially as the last film i saw was drag me to hell and that was a masterpiece ans was what cinema was truly made for, not this self indulgent, stupid, poorly written, shitfest. Rant over.

    Ok maybe since I’m not from the US or anything but…..is using racial stereotypes SOLELY for comedic effect really that bad? I mean, Jesus, unless the producers and screenwriters went on a KKK meeting right after finishing the movie I honestly doubt that hey meant to be “racially insensitive”. Like, what does “racially insensitive” even mean? I thought they whole idea was to treat people of all races the same way and wouldn’t being racially SENSITIVE mean that you ARE treating them differently because they are part of a different race? I’m not saying the jokes are good or anything, but is it really that horribly offensive? Even though not all black people act like that SOME black people act like that so such characters are poking fun at them.

    Ok Spoony, I usually respect your work and your oppinion, but this time I just can’t.
    I don’t know why you hate transformers so much, but this is way over the top dude. I saw this movie with my brother and my friends and all of us thought it was awsome, even the newspaper reviewer gave it a good score (I live in Sweden).

    You might not like it, and thats totally fine by me. However, you can not call this “the worst movie ever”, not by a long shot.
    I have seen some pretty bad movies in my days so I know what i’m talking about, and Transformers 2 does not even come close to beeing as bad as you say.

    I’m really sad to see you sink so low you know.

    Battlefield Earth, no movie gets worse than that. As for Transformers 2, I was going to take my father to go see it since he like the first one but all chances of that happening have completely diminished into oblivion. Two and a half hours of bulls**t doesn’t sound like a grand and well spent adventure.

    I’ll probably get dragged to seed this, but the first film was just TERRIBLE.

    Megan Fox is hot, sure, but I’m not paying $10 for a few minutes of shameless eye candy.
    I hate hate hate hate HATE Shia LeBouf. Good god, it’s like he’s doing his best to act as stereotypically Jewish as possible.

    And the fucking Autobots act like children.

    Even the action was crappy. Robot shoots other robot. Other robot is unaffected. repeat for several minutes. pew pew pew. Oh and Optimus and Megatron tussle a bit but it’s hard to really make out and most of it happens off screen anyhow.

  • Moccamonster

    This movie is possibly the worst high-budget film ever made. It beats Waterworld. Waterworld, people! What has this world become?!

    The plot is just such a clusterfuck, i might have read Transformers fanfiction that is MILES better then this. And believe me, i’ve read some shitty fanfiction.

    Micheal Bay just took everything that made the 80’s cartoon so great, put it in a blender together with a big dump, and then barfed on the result. Recognizable characters, gone. Great action scenes, gone. Decent human characters, off the fucking radar!

    Oh, and you gotta love Bay’s idea on how everyone forgot about the Transformers. His idea was that it was like Katrina, in that it was forgotten in like, 6 months. I don’t think that applies to alien robots that can defy the laws of physics and somehow turn into cars and trucks.

    At the end, i hoped the Fallen would just barge onto the scene, unleash his all powerfull lazor or something, and blow up the entire world.

    One thing though, i would still rather watch this then Troll 2, because despite the campiness of it, it still is the worst movie i have ever seen, and i have sat through Street Fighter, Double Dragon, and even Wing Commander. At least TF2 had some good effects, whereas Troll 2 just zapped these little lightning bolts through the screen. TF2 had a lack of plot, but that still beats an unreal, impossible, logicdefying plot. And Shia LeBouf, as terrible as he is, is better then that guy who yelled “Oh mah goooooooooooooooood”.

    I did watch the first, but I don’t remember anything from it, except retarded action scenes.
    And the most hilarious part of this review is all the people being offended..
    It’s like “Oh noes, spoony is bashing me for liking it, and that would mean I’m stupid”.. and reply in that fashion. People need to lighten up and do their own review of why it was so damn good then. (Though I hardly see that happening)
    Cheers from Sweden, keep up the good reviews spoony!

    I did not see either transformers, so you cannot hate me. I feel your pain though. I sat through many a bad movies and may watch this one just to write a blog on how bad it is, but I probally wont watch it, cause I do not want to go through the horror of sitting through shit.

  • Assiman

    I hate Bay. I don’t even like the original transformers show that much, but my god! This movie just suck. Seriously.

    I agree with Spoony’s opinion. Must have been shitty situation to watch this confusing mess in almost front row. Great review anyways and nice to see your bro too.

    I didn’t even watch the first movie iwas like “Nothing good can come of this why would so many people want to see it?” of course micheal bay cant make a decent Transformer movie.. i mean i knew these movies would be bad but OMG judging from this review.. they are MUCH worse then i would ever have imagined.. im so glad i knew this would be bad..

  • Riptor

    Well, I saw the first movie and I liked it, but mostly because of the nostalgic value it has for reminding me of the great times I had watching the original TV series, not for the movie itself. I will watch the second movie today, but after watching this review I fear that Michael Bay will fuck this one up as well with his stupid jokes.

    But I can say this for sure, no matter how bad this second movie is, it will probably give me that nostalgic feeling the first one did, and for that reason, and that reason alone, it will be better than the following movies I watched. Without exception, these movies made me die a little inside:

    – Battlefield Earth (Actually watched it at the movie theatre. I know what you mean when you say it feels like it goes on for hours. Horrible movie.)
    – Reign of Fire (Filled with plot holes, for example if the dragons killed of the dinosaurs, how come they didn’t rule the Earth after that, and who killed the dragons except for the one survivor. And so many more mistakes that made me hate it.)
    – The Day The Earth Stood Still (Most Keanu Reeves suck, but this one…..awful. I was begging for it to end and when I looked at my watch only about 15 minutes had gone by. Truly an effective means of torture.)
    – Beowulf (Did anyone with half a mind actually like this piece of crap? Never mind the horrible CGI use, the plot and story go nowhere. Terrible movie.)

    There are a few more I can’t remember right now, but let me just say this: Any of these movies would be considered a means of torture. If you want to interrogate terrorists, just show them any of these movies and I guarantee that after 20 minutes they’ll be giving out everything they know. I’m just not sure if this goes against the Geneva convention.

    don’t hate me i saw the first one but i was just holding it for a friend!!! lol really though he got a free copy (one of his friends burnt it for him) and he brought it to my house and we watched it. what a piece of shit movie that was. i was afraid that they were making another after the ending and i was right oh god. is there even any riffing value to the second one? like really is there even anything you can point out and laugh at? because to me it seems like (from what you two were saying) that it makes fun of itself in away and it doesnt work usualy trying to riff those sorts of movies.
    anyways i really liked that you brought miles in i mean spoony is the man but it was pretty cool/funny that you had someone to bounce off of instead of just talking to your camera lol but really though he was pretty funny. i hope you do more with him. i mean dont like ALWAYS have him on cuz spoony is spoony! but i you should do more stuff like this every once in awhile or maybe have him play a character or something he’s funny.
    though i got a suggestion for you. watch the movie The Pumpkin Carver and then tell wich you’d rather watch. that movie is fucking rancid and just ugh its horrible. but then again The Pumpkin Carve could be riffed on quite a bit so idk. the ONLY thing in the movie that makes TPC even barrable without clawing youre eyes out is a guy is taking a piss and he gets his head cut off and piss’ on his own head….wich goes agains the laws of physics and logic but its one of those things you thought youd never really see someone seriously do in a movie, so its got that once ina lifetime appeal things. but either way the movie SUCKS! but yeh im never paying for transformers 2. maybe if i get to see it for free or something i watch it just because A: me and my friend can riff B: see what spoony was talking about and C:im a self masochistic bad movie lover like you two so i kinda want to see how really bad it is.

    The worst movie I have ever seen in my entire life was Grizzly Man, even though it’s not technically a movie. It’s really a documentary, but I’ve never been happier in my life that a man was killed and eaten by a bear than I was when I saw that jumble of film.

  • Disthron

    I went to see this movie yesterday….. people clapped and cheered at the end! It’s only the second movie I’ve ever been to where that happened, and I go to see most things that come out. I actually thought it was pretty good but not that good.

    Also, I know this movie has it’s problems but I’ve no idea how you can justify calling it one of the worced movies to EVER blight the cinema. That is a VERY big claim witch Transformers 2 comes no where near justifying. what’s wrong with us? I’m wondering what’s wrong with you?

    Come to think of it, with “the twins” most of the time I couldn’t actually understand what they were saying. So they were supposed to be black stereotypes? I thought they were supposed to be Yocals, like Cleetis from the Simpson’s. Though I was just going on the sound of there voices as, like I said, I couldn’t understand most of what they were saying.

    What do you mean that the filming of the action was incomprehensible? Mostly it’s two or more giant robots shooting or bashing one and other. It’s not like there spouting techno-babble or something. Most of the time there not even talking. What’s so hard to comprehend?

    Wasn’t Lord of the Rings like 3hrs long? Also 2001 was dam boring.

    Some very good points about the parents and the cover up thing. I guess you could MAYBE explain away something like that in China but not in the US.

    Some of the main problems I had with it was the humanoid decepticon. I mean what was he even doing at that party when he was supposed to be on the net with his girlfriend. Then there is that hole thing of him dragging her across the desert. I guess she could have been captured and held hostage like his parents but there was no reason for both of them to be running through the gunfire in the final battle. I mean at least in the first film she had something to do.

    You know, from watching your other movie reviews, it seems that no one is allowed to be sad, let alone cry, ever for any reason. Although I have to agree that when Optimus died I didn’t think he’d stay dead. With robots in general it’s a lot easier to bring them back from the dead because often you can just repair them. I did think that they were being a little rough with his body through. I mean did the Chinook really have to just dump him on the tarmac, couldn’t they have laid him down? Have some respect man! I’m also wondering why, if they went to all the trouble of dropping Megatron in the ocean why they didn’t rip him up onto bitty peaces first.

    “I don’t like to through out terms like worst movie ever” Oh, yes you do! I mean you seem to really think there crappy but you do like to through that out there. See I didn’t think transformers was that bad. My brother actually loved it. I’m sure he’s going to love the second one too.

    Oh, Alone in the Dark was awful. It’s still nowhere near the worst movie I have ever seen though. And one of my best friends loves Twilight. He’s reading the books and is really looking forward to the new movie. ^_^

    OK, on to part 2!

    I didn’t like eragon ether, but it didn’t make me angry. I don’t even know Manos.

    You know, there was so much clutter in that room I didn’t even notice the vending machine. I also didn’t notice what kind of phone they were using. I also had no idea that all the cars were from the same manufacturer but then agen I don’t know anything about cars really. Oh, and before I forget, even if I had noticed the movie posters I probably wouldn’t have known that they were directed by the same guy.

    I should probably say that I was never really a fan of the TV show back in the 80’s. For me the original show was in the same leeg as Captain Planet. It was ok but there were other shows I liked a LOT more.

    Anyway, it was interesting watching you rant. I have to say I think that your pretty wrong about Transformers 2. It wasn’t the best movie I’ve ever seen but I thought it was pretty good.

    What do you mean that the filming of the action was incomprehensible? Mostly it’s two or more giant robots shooting or bashing one and other. It’s not like there spouting techno-babble or something. Most of the time there not even talking. What’s so hard to comprehend?

    Wasn’t Lord of the Rings like 3hrs long? Also 2001 was dam boring.

    Some very good points about the parents and the cover up thing. I guess you could MAYBE explain away something like that in China but not in the US.

    Some of the main problems I had with it was the humanoid decepticon. I mean what was he even doing at that party when he was supposed to be on the net with his girlfriend. Then there is that hole thing of him dragging her across the desert. I guess she could have been captured and held hostage like his parents but there was no reason for both of them to be running through the gunfire in the final battle. I mean at least in the first film she had something to do.

    You know, from watching your other movie reviews, it seems that no one is allowed to be sad, let alone cry, ever for any reason. Although I have to agree that when Optimus died I didn’t think he’d stay dead. With robots in general it’s a lot easier to bring them back from the dead because often you can just repair them. I did think that they were being a little rough with his body through. I mean did the Chinook really have to just dump him on the tarmac, couldn’t they have laid him down? Have some respect man! I’m also wondering why, if they went to all the trouble of dropping Megatron in the ocean why they didn’t rip him up onto bitty peaces first.

    “I don’t like to through out terms like worst movie ever” Oh, yes you do! I mean you seem to really think there crappy but you do like to through that out there. See I didn’t think transformers was that bad. My brother actually loved it. I’m sure he’s going to love the second one too.

    Oh, Alone in the Dark was awful. It’s still nowhere near the worst movie I have ever seen though. And one of my best friends loves Twilight. He’s reading the books and is really looking forward to the new movie. ^_^

    OK, on to part 2!

    I didn’t like eragon ether, but it didn’t make me angry. I don’t even know Manos.

    You know, there was so much clutter in that room I didn’t even notice the vending machine. I also didn’t notice what kind of phone they were using. I also had no idea that all the cars were from the same manufacturer but then agen I don’t know anything about cars really. Oh, and before I forget, even if I had noticed the movie posters I probably wouldn’t have known that they were directed by the same guy.

    I should probably say that I was never really a fan of the TV show back in the 80’s. For me the original show was in the same leeg as Captain Planet. It was ok but there were other shows I liked a LOT more.

    Anyway, it was interesting watching you rant. I have to say I think that your pretty wrong about Transformers 2. It wasn’t the best movie I’ve ever seen but I thought it was pretty good.

    Haven’t seen it— don’t think I will. Maybe when it comes out on dvd and dad gets it to watch (which…btw…he watches anything and everything….). So- I suppose I won’t be watching the review (but I’ll eventually break down and watch to satisfy my Spoony addiction. Not like I’ll be taking much out of movie watching experience if I knew the plot). But the opening is already hilarious (Spoony in pain…hilarious?).

    Get this: it’s being considered for a nomination for Best Picture for the Oscars.

    As far as bad movies go this movie is really bad but it isn’t the worst. I have found a movie a lt worse made this year. If you have seen Hannah Montana (i went there looking for a bad movie and not because i am a fanboy retard) the movie it’s just horrid and painful mostly because of the huge amount of cockiness ”hidden” within. Also in the transformers there was 60 minutes of actual movie while Hannah achieved about 15 min of shitty music videos and the rest is just talking about how Hannah is the ultimate being and is more popular then Jesus.

    Damn you Spoony, I was not planning on seeing this movie but now I must. I have to find out if this movie is really the worst film like you say it is. I mean really, could it REALLY be worse than Ang Lee’s Hulk, the Super Mario Bros. Movie, Ninja Turtles 3, Godzilla, or Open Water? I mean, you have to be pretty bad to be worse than Open Water. Oh and don’t forget In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale, one of the worst Uwe Bole films ever, so easily one of the worst movies ever. And Saw no. 9240201XX6. Or whatever they are up to. Along Came Polly, oh, and North, and Bubble Boy, that was REALLY bad. She’s all That, Glitter, The One, Crossroads, The Garbage Pail Kids Movie, any movie ever made for LifeTime… and lets not forget Catwoman! the list goes on and there are A LOT of contenders for the crown. And now I have to go see because SOMEONE just HAD to throw the gauntlet. So, thanks alot.

    You want a worse movie ? Just watch Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus. It came out this year. SegaCD-quality 3D effects (half of them are just mirrored throughout the whole movie), the plot is so ridiculous and full of holes it’s a miracle it didn’t implode during filming and the sheer ammount of continuity and logic errors is just mindblowing. For example a giant shark jumps up 30000 feet into the sky and destroys a speeding 747. Or there’s a scene where a single jet fighter scouts for the octopus and every two shots the aircraft model is changed. One time it’s an F-15, after that an F-18 and ends up looking like an F-22. Oh, an pheromones glow in the dark like some generic radioactive substance.
    What’s the worst part ? PEOPLE REALLY LIKED THIS PIECE OF SHIT.

    @Disthron – 2001 boring? Looks like you’re the target audience for this crap, dude. Also, LOTR was over 3h long EACH so T2 doesn’t even come close when comparing the ACTUAL running time. But I remember seeing Alexander and it felt like at least 5h so I know the feeling. Nice idea with this vid. You two should do that more often

    What’s the deal Spoonerman?

    You complain about not understanding what’s going on and that you thus can not enjoy it, and you also complain about the “retarded 4-year old” behind you, who whas having the time of his life.

    Ever considered that he got more of the plot then you did? Mayby he was just paying a BIT more attention. Most of the shots it’s 2 robots fighting eachother. It’s not required that you know the names of them, but it’s always easy to tell who is good/bad.

    Also, why does NOBODY understand why the transformers have lame, steroetypical manners of speech? “We learned about human culture from the world wide web”, uh oh, they learned about us from the land of stereotypes and cusswords.

    And finally, why are you just so hateful towards this movie, when I have seen you being infinitly forgiving towards stuff like Final Fantasty Tactics A2: The Grimoire of the Rift? Seems pretty inconsistent.

    Two things:
    First, an advisory: I loathe Michael Bay, and avoid him like the plague he is. I still have seizures if I accidentally remember a scene from Pearl Harbor, which I was tragically forced to watch back in eight grade. Eurgh, I swear that movie gave me post traumatic stress. I also usually don’t go for mindless action movies, and don’t like turning my brain off just so I could be entertained. If given the choice, I would choose Casablanca or the Philadelphia Story over Independence Day or Men in Black without a second thought. And finally, I would say that about 85% of your review was spot on.

    Second, a confession: I had an absolute blast at Transformers, and for the life of me, I can’t figure out why. I really, really don’t understand. I mean, what the f*** is wrong with me?
    I have a few theories — I mean, I guess ther’e the heavy nostalgia factor loved the show/movie when I was a kid), but if anything, I should hate this movie more for f***-ing up a beloved childhood memory. And I guess that where you and your bro wanted to strangle yourself, I was more reverse-entertained at the bad parts, kind of in a so-terrible-it’s-good-to-make-fun-of-it way, but then again I genuinely liked th action sequences, over-blown though they may be. Still, I’m jiggered.

    Anyone else have the same experience?

    Well as much as I loved the movie, I can’t disagree with you on a lot of the facts. The twins Skid and Mudflap were the worst idea period, Leo could have been dropped after they found the S7 guy or even before then and they could have found another way to find him, and the fact that every decepticon besides Devastator and that random green truck thing in the desert looked like Megatron was pretty annoying.

    However I’d like to point out that people don’t watch this movie for it’s plot or humor. They come for the sheer fact that it’s Transformers, a movie/show that we loved as kids when we watched it with our parents, and still love today and probably always will til our dying days. I mean you can’t tell me that you didn’t go “Holy shit that’s hardcore” when Optimus Prime took on Megatron, Starscream and another random decpticon, pulled a second sword and stated: “I’ll take you all on” then proceeded to destroy the random one and use him as a shield to get to the others.

    A good example of why people watch movies is (drum roll please) STAR WARS! EPISODE IV: A New Hope. People watched this in theatres forever because the effects were great, the wars were cool, and Harrison Ford was Han Solo. But if you took away all those special effects, then the movie wasn’t as great as it appeared to be, and you notice that all the actors did really terrible jobs besides Harrison Ford and James Earl Jones’ voice (and they’re the only ones who got work after episode VI!!!).

    So yeah, Transformers was a bit of a let down with the storyline, but that doesn’t matter whatsoever to a lot of us. We simply enjoy seeing another adventure with our beloved 20 ton destructive robot killing machines.

    If it makes you feel any better, I didn’t pay for my ticket (though really my Mother when I had little money), and you’ve just made me hate the movie more so than I did! I’m a Transformers fan, and I didn’t like this movie as much as the last, but only some little good stuff made it a somewhat enjoyable time. Somewhat…

    Admitedly, I mostly enjoyed the few action sequences and seeing certain Transformers, especially hearing some of them (Peter Cullen and Frank Welker especially). Also didn’t mind Jetfire much, cos I don’t mind old codgers (I somewhat act like an old codger) Wasn’t greatly dissapointed with the movie, only because I had my expectations low! But at least we saw more robots this time.
    But everything else, it’s as you’ve said, and I very much agree with all points. The humour put me off, as it’s something I can’t see going for a Transformers movie. It’s like trying to make a Gangsta version out of Zelda or turn the Godfather into a comedy with toilet jokes. I never cared for the human characters or comic relief, neither. It somewhat hurt me watching any scene without the fighting. Also dissapointed that they didn’t include the theme song again!
    The only bit I liked was the interaction between Megatron and Starscream, since that’s the only thing from Transformers that’s accurate (other than Optimus and Soundwave’s voices, I can’t recall Optimus Prime killing off somebody). Everything else, Meh! I even got bored by the last hour. And the whole Robot reproduction, I think those’re Protoforms. Could go on about them, but maybe another time and don’t want to make too long a comment.

    A movie I’d rather watch instead both Transformers movie is the old 1986 movie. Sure, it might seem silly and cheesy in times, like a Typical Transformers cartoon, but it’s far more enjoyable and memorable (and the song The Touch and a Weird Al song, too), and has Star Wars elements to it, from chosen ones to Giant planet Transformer (Unicron/ Transformer Satan) destroying/eating other planets.
    Would you also say that this movie’s worse than Crystal Skull?! And seeing how they had Judas (The Fallen) in this movie, what’s the odds of them getting Satan (Unicron) and God (Primus) in the next one?

    Thanks Spoony now I’ll never go and experience the full IMAX John Turturo crotch experience. You still didn’t answer the question about if the Transformers were more in this film than the other but I think it’s self explanatory seeing it’s 4 minutes longer :P. Watever it’s clear that the movie is just a actionxplotation movie with big budget with the foundation of the nostalgia factor of the fans. But I thinthey will feel more raped than the Watchmen and Star Trek and Star Wars fans combined.

    And, since you’ve mentioned the Autobots’ speech manners – are you really that dumb? The “world wide web” bull isn’t the reason they talk the way they talk, it’s just lame excuse for the writers to make them talk like retards. Learn to distinguish those two, than we’ll talk.

    I saw it and i liked it. Also why is that white people seem to get more upset about black stereotypes than black people. Im black and the theater I was at was about 60% black and we were all laughing at them. Besides to get the twins seem like white kids trying to act gangsta. Just my opinion.

    First of all, I haven’t seen the movie and most likely wont after seeing this review. Second, this is from the San Fransisco Chronicle. It’s an interview with the voice actor, who is a black guy by the way, who played mudflap (the guy who voices spongebob was Skidz) and he came up with the voice and most of the characterization.

    Wilson said Wednesday that he never imagined viewers might consider the twins to be racial caricatures. When he took the role, he was told that the alien robots learned about human culture through the Web and that the twins were “wannabe gangster types.”
    “It’s an alien who uploaded information from the Internet and put together the conglomeration and formed this cadence, way of speaking and body language that was accumulated over X amount of years of information and that’s what came out,” the 40-year-old actor said. “If he had uploaded country music, he would have come out like that.”
    It’s not fair to assume the characters are black, he said.
    “It could easily be a Transformer that uploaded Kevin Federline data,” Wilson said. “They were just like posers to me.”

    I don’t know who this Michael fella is, but Il reply to you anyway.

    The Autobots speak the way they do because the writers wanted to give them some personality, and if you deem them “retarded” then that’s your problem I guess. All I’m saying is, I’m sick of people getting “offended” by stuff that vaguely resembles black stereotypes.

    Would you be angry if a white, middle-class french kid started speaking English in a “gangster-slang” way?

    I wanted action, and I got action. I liked the first movie, and this is just more of that. More robots, more action, more stupid and racially insensitive toilet humor.

    It may have plot holes, annoying as fuck characters and it is too long. I agree with you on a lot of things, but I got what I wanted.

    If you keep your expectations low, you will not be disappointed.

    I actually kind of enjoyed the first movie. Yes it has some cliche’s and empty character, but it didn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it for the action.

    I’m really kind of shocked you hated the first film as much as you say you did, was it really that bad?

    Ehrm… Great review and all but doesn’t anyone else think that Miles looks a bit like van Damme?

    I have a theory that the people who complain the loudest about “racial stereotypes” are most likely closet racists themselves. They misread what they see because that is how they see other races and try to convince themselves and others that they really don’t think of other races in that way. From the sound of it these robots are more like white boys who think they’re “gangsta”. Ask yourself, would you be as offended if they talked like illiterate rednecks and acted like they were from Deliverance, or would you laugh your ass off at those silly hillbilly inbreds?

    I’m not talking about Spoony by the way, but people who overreact in general.

    PS. If stereotypes of “gangstas” are so offensive then we should boycott the “gangsta” movies and rappers who play it up. I went to college with guys who were walking stereotypes. They had to constantly hold up their pants and waddle around because their belt lines were bellow their ass cheeks and they spoke English so badly that they could barely compose a coherent sentence and had to drop out of half their classes. They treated women like property and talked about “pimpin da bitch ho’s” (actual quote by the way!). Other black guys I knew were perfectly coherent and had no problems keeping their clothing in place. They couldn’t stand how the others made them look. Most stereotypes don’t pop up from nowhere but are based on actual actions and behaviors from a segment of the communities in question. While they may or may not be the minority, they are the most noticeable and therefore become the stereotype of the entire community. The way to transcend this is not just to be outraged, but to work to make the non-stereotype image the most recognizable and therefore make the stereotype irrelevant.

    I did see Battlefield Earth, yeah I know. We’ll see how bad this movie is. If you guys start comparing this film to Battlefield Earth, man, I’ll have to bring a barf-bag to the theater.

    I was desperately hoping for you to rip the living shit out of this piece of relentless fucking balls. I may be going out on a limb here… but this film made Uwe Boll look fucking competent. I actually tore some of my hair out watching it. I wanted to scream. I never even frigging liked Transformers as a concept in the first place but I got dragged into it by my best friend (God bless him) and I physically cringed for the entire duration of the movie. Every single scene was actually torturing me with toilet humour, beyond annoying characters and completely nonsensical crappy plot.

    The worst film I’ve ever seen, bar none. Thank you Spoony (and Miles!) for this brilliant decapitation of the piece of crap that was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. Maybe now I can salvage my shattered movie-consumer psyche. Maybe…

I dont want to see this i dont plan to see this and i will not see this movie.

    So wait your pissed because he hit his target audience right on the fuck in head, but I mean come on you can’t get pissed because he did what he was supposed. how about you watch it again from a different angle if you see it from higher up it would make much more sense. I was sitting like three rows down from the top and I got everything just fine.

    Re: Comparing Transformers 2 to other movies; considering it’s an acceptionally high-budget film, I’d say it’s only really fair to compare it to other high-budget films (relatively speaking, for older films.).

    And as far as these movies themselves are concerned, I loathingly watched and to some minor enjoyed TF1, although frankly I consider it a poor movie. Now, this one, I wasn’t planning on seeing anyway, and frankly given the disparity between the general literacy of the other commenters (who support the film) I feel rather justified in this regard.

    I have 2 agree with you guys about Battlefield Earth (I downloaded the rifftrax to it or they would have probably had to put me in a straitjacket.) EVERY camera angle is on its side. There are plot holes big enough to swallow several houses, and Travolta hams it up as much as a hog farm. But one question, which would you rather watch, Transformers 2 or Waterworld? For me, Waterworld is pretty high up on my scale of bad movies. What do you guys think? Very good show. And even if my 4 yr. old was begging and screaming for me to take him to this garbagefest, I would say hell no. For, I love my son, and do not wish upon him brain damage…

    HA! I never saw the first OR the second so I don’t count lol! I think movies like these are the reason I don’t watch many. The only new 2 movie I’ve seen is dark night and speedracer(btw I actualy kind of liked speed. It did what I expected and the cgi was done the way it was to make it look cartoony.)You know what I watched enstead of the transformers movies. The old episodes and movies of transformers and much better mechs(such as mobile suit gundam…no not SEED the original.) I like to play a game when a movie based on something from my child hood comes out I usually ignore the movie watch the shit I liked and pretend the movie never happened(I do the same thing to the batman brave in the bold show, where I watch the 90s batman. I actually sat though a few Brave and bold episodes and the bastards actually did a skit where they where making fun of fans of batman for saying there series is inferior to the 90s…douch bags)

    I went to the theater thinking “giant robot action. Can’t be that bad” (yeah, sorry. But to my excuse I didn’t went to see the first one.)

    Well, ILM did a good job, but the actors sucked, the plot was stupid, the transformers were often hidden by shaky cameras, close-ups or turning cameras .
    I thought about making a 1 hour edition of the movie cutting the sucky parts out. During the movie.

    Good review by the way! (as always)

    I saw the first movie, and it was a disappointment. Then again.. I consider myself a ‘purist’, or as the Transformer fans would say, ‘G1-er’. The new style that Bay is rolling with is a horrid abomination that turns Transformers into giant robotic insect-looking things that can turn into cars and planes. It’s just bad.

    As for Bay, his only decent movie was The Rock… but that’s just my opinion.

    I don’t think Spoony is actually going to be roasting movie-goers with a flamethrower, guys. Don’t take anything he says TOO seriously.

    Honestly though, I didn’t mind the first movie too much…most of it was stupid, yeah, and I think I hated all the same parts everyone else did. I assumed there was nowhere left to go but up though, and that the second one would be worlds better now that the robots and everything have been established. Surely we’ll be able to see more robots, more fighting, and hopefully less of the annoying parents and humans in general, but I guess not.

    The internet has pretty much killed what little hope I had for this movie, I was excited about it, and now I’m dreading the thought of sitting through it instead. I really don’t know if I’m going to bother, I want to see it just for the action but if even HALF of the retarded bullshit the Spoony brothers commented on was true then it wouldn’t really be worth it. I’d probably launch myself at the screen in a fit of rage when the “Bumblebee go away” scene came on, how can anyone be that stupid? I’ve been drinking more Dr. Pepper lately than any human being really should just for the chance to win one of those Camaros, and his can not only get him Megan Fox but it can transform into a robot and kick ass for him. Doesn’t even make any sense, you very clearly DO need him fucker if he just saved your ass from getting buttfucked by a mob of Decepticons.

    And robot balls. Really? If I pushed my palm into my forehead any harder it would be in my brain.

    Honestly though, I didn’t mind the first movie too much…most of it was stupid, yeah, and I think I hated all the same parts everyone else did. I assumed there was nowhere left to go but up though, and that the second one would be worlds better now that the robots and everything have been established. Surely we’ll be able to see more robots, more fighting, and hopefully less of the annoying parents and humans in general, but I guess not.

    The internet has pretty much killed what little hope I had for this movie, I was excited about it, and now I’m dreading the thought of sitting through it instead. I really don’t know if I’m going to bother, I want to see it just for the action but if even HALF of the retarded bullshit the Spoony brothers commented on was true then it wouldn’t really be worth it. I’d probably launch myself at the screen in a fit of rage when the “Bumblebee go away” scene came on, how can anyone be that stupid? I’ve been drinking more Dr. Pepper lately than any human being really should just for the chance to win one of those Camaros, and his can not only get him Megan Fox but it can transform into a robot and kick ass for him. Doesn’t even make any sense, you very clearly DO need him fucker if he just saved your ass from getting buttfucked by a mob of Decepticons.

    And robot balls. Really? If I pushed my palm into my forehead any harder it would be in my brain.

    You should have your brother in more of your videos. You two really worked well together. Was interesting listening to both points of view. The thing at the end where you guys compared bad movies to transformers 2 was brilliant. :) Does your bro have a channel or website himself??

    Good review, but, in regards to your defending Oliver Stone, ‘Natural Born Killers’ convinced me that he’s nothing more than a controversy whore, so let me respectfully disagree with you there.

    I never thought that the first Transformer movie would be descent, so I did not watch it until my brother bought it. I did not like it, as I predicted, it was horrible. That is why I did not watch this movie, I didn’t even want to watch it for the pure stupidity of it.

    But people are dumb. That is a fact! if a product is advertised well enough then people will buy it. I know because that is how I waste most of my money. I bought SIMS 3 simply because it looked tempting. I’m not a child, I was wowed by the time and effort they said they put into the game. It was bad! Simply because it was almost identical to Sims 2. We react on what we see and if it looks nice enough, then we want it.

    We just need to learn that sequels are bad generally because they never give us something new, it’s the same old story both with games and with movies.

    Anyway, thanks for the warning Spoony, I would have given up on the world if people like you didn’t exist.

    Well, I’m seeing for free tonight at an employee screening (I work in a movie theatre) and I’m afraid most of the people I work with are going to love it and cheer throughout. Most of them keep talking about how awesome the G.I Joe trailer looks. Whatever, at least I’m not giving Michael Bay any money.

    Mitch is pretty cool, get him in some more reviews and whatnot. Thanks for the review Spoony, sorry you had to sit through that AND pay money! Don’t worry, I paid to sit through 3 hours of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, luckily, I did not gouge my eyes out because it did finally end.

    ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED?
    I loved the movie. I loved it because even though it strayed from the comics and the old series… it is a fucking movie.
    it was made for enjoyment. And as much as things went on I loved some of the characters… Jetfire, Wheelie… those were my favs.
    The scene where Optimus is fighting everyone and ( SPOILERS) gets impaled by Megatron… I was reminded of the old fight with him and Megatron in Transformers the movie 1986.

    This movie was made for kids and fans of the first movie… as well as those of us that can actually see. Yes spoony. I could tell who was who nearly all the time. Decepticons were harder to figure out but the autobots were easy to remember.

    If your trying to remember who was missing from the second movie that was in the first… it was Jazz… but he had a valid excuse… HE WAS RIPPED IN HALF AND DIED IN THE LAST MOVIE!

    Yes the comic relief bots were just that… comic relief… but they were not as bad as Jar Jar… as Jar Jar killed the joke the twins actually made me laugh. Especially when ( SPOILERS) they fought Devastator.

    I went to the showing with a G1 purist… he usually agrees with you on these things Spoony… but this time… no.
    He loved this movie and honestly I can’t wait for the next one. Maybe we will see some autobots like Boomer or Cliffjumper or even Blur and Kup. I would love to see Kup in the movie.

    I have seen this movie twice. And if the chance presents itself I will go again.
    As for my intelligence on this subject. Spoony… I am not a genius… but I do hold a college education. I am usually on the level with you man… and agree with what you say about alot of the stuff out there. But honestly… this time… not so much.

    Battlefield Earth is a travesty, as is TF2. I will say, I haven’t seen it yet, but hearing spoilers and reviews such as this has convinced me that it would be a giant waste of my time….and I quite enjoyed the first one!!
    Bay is Bay, I know what to expect but it seems he’s crossed the line into self-parody territory with this garbage.
    To any defenders, stereotype and one liners does not equal character development or personality – it’s lazy, worthless and pathetic. $200 million and about $5 was spent on the story, script and plot – madness!
    And the “all I want to see is big robots fighting” argument doesn’t work either, because a movie with no story to hang the action from is nothing but an FX reel. Without adequate pacing, action means nothing. Action is supposed to be exciting, something to look forward to and provide something to put the antagonists at risk. If it’s non-stop action, where does the excitement come from? You can only see shards of metal clash together so long before it becomes boring – Bay has succeeded in making the world’s most boring action film.

    ASD, you came to the site and clicked the link, if their opinion matters so little why the hell are you here and why the hell did you comment on something you care little for? Disagreeing with an opinion is one thing, but crying about how their opinion means nothing simply because they didn’t like a movie you did shows a remarkable lack of maturity and intelligence. Grow up.

    Loved you review :) Pretty funny.

    But, I must admit, I loved the first Transformers and I am excited about seeing the sequel. Does this make me a bad person? LOL!

    Seriously, lighten up folks. These movies are not as bad as everyone says they are. I mean, spoony loves highlander, a pretty damn cheesy action movie with tons of bad dialog and plot holes. Why hate on transformers so much? (I love highlander too BTW).

    It seems like most folks just have an ax to grind with Michael Bay.

    Fun review none the less.

    asd wants to sound smart and “cool” just because he liked the movie but as there are almost no argument to say that it was good he just use a very low and pathetic way of express himself by saying something “ofensive” to the one or ones (spoony and his brother in this case) because no better opinion can be said by him and for the movie

    in short saying he is trolling because somebody bash his favorite and lovely movie

    To all of you : those who loved it (as weird as it can be) or hated it : just do not forget that there is a difference between something you like and between something that is good.

    Most people like what is bad. In any domain. Junk food is a good example. Arts, including cinema, is no exception. People like this movie, in general, but it is bad, indeed.

    To all of you : those who loved it (as weird as it can be) or hated it : just do not forget that there is a difference between something you like and between something that is good.

    I’m sorry, folks – this movie was SHIT, plain and simple. When is America going to raise its standards? How does THIS pass for entertainment? I was actually BORED by the time this overlong piece of elephant shit was over.

    This was such an entertaing review and your brother made it a lot more enjoyable. I was seriously considering going to see this movie because it looks like it should’ve been oh i dunno somewhat decent for half way developed human minds but that’s obviously not the case.

    i like Transformers. i like it a LOT. and Pearl Harbour. i saw it, it was ok. same with Twilight. not exceptional, but OK.

    and as for pointing out pliot holes: that’s called BREAKING THE FOURTH WALL.

    and besides, Transformers (the new ones) are partly humorous. you didn;t like Transformer’s humour beacause you went in, expecting to have more fights between the robots. you didn;t expect the humour or the excessive human charactors. sorry, but you just don’t know to expect the unexpected. besides…

    if you don;t like the movies, don;t watch them!

    I liked Transformers 2: it reminded me a lot of Batman and Robin, another underrated gem. I hope the next four sequels will have Vin Diesel and Jean Claude Van Damme as conjoined twins who become the President of the United States. In fact: they should be the focus of the movie! Michael Bay is a JEEN-YUS!

    the thing is, I normally agree with most of Spoonys opinions, but the fact is.
    The cinema cheered and aplauded to the movie aswell… I wonder why? Probably cause it is good.
    This movie was great, I honestly think so. If you find the Twins offensive you get offended too easily, sure they had too much screen time but when the main action came they was rarely seen, they was there mostly for the desert bit to stop the younger audience getting bored.
    The movie didn’t even seem long to me, the only time I felt like it dragged on was in the desert when they was just walking around.
    So yeah… what part of ‘mindless action’ don’t you understand?

    Deep4t, I think the rating for the movie from both critics AND users on RottenTomatoes says otherwise.

  • Sniktbub

    Hi Spoony. Update time, I watched this movie online…and you know what? It wasn’t all that bad. So I’m going to drag my father along to see it in the theater.

    Calling this the worst movie ever is SERIOUSLY overreacting. Try most any Sci-Fi Channel original, or any hip hop or dance movie. And if you wanna go for length, how about Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless mind. It’s only 108 minutes long but it feels like it drags on for hours and has the worst, most confusingly stupid plot of any movie I’ve seen. I fucking hated that movie, and I love Jim Carrey.

    I think you’re letting your nerd rage get to you a wee bit too much. These movies may bastardize the Transformers, but if you try looking at them as just giant generic robots beating the shit out of each other, I’m pretty sure you could overlook it. Then again the only Transformers series I’ve ever liked was Beast Wars, I thought the original was boring.

    The movie as of right now has a 21% positive rating on Rotten Tomatoes. It is NOT a good movie. Do not be confused. And furthermore, I don’t think it makes sense to jump on one person for their objective opinion and not go after all the other critics.

    And again, as a person who never saw much of G1 and only really saw Beast Wars (and liked it), from one Beast Wars fan to another, you’re out of your mind to claim this is a good movie. Also when a sci-fi channel movie features robo-balls, maybe they’ll be as bad as this.

    My entire family watched this movie so I take offense to this.
    This wasn’t a review AT ALL! It was just a whiny bitch fit of fan boys. The dragonball movie was shit because they took a complete 180 with everything about the show! But in this movie they have all the characters and they act like they should! The ONLY hing I didn’t like was the
    pointless love story! But did that keep my from loving the movie? NO! Because I’m not some idiot who can’t take a single flaw with any new thing because all they care about is whining about their FUCKING childhood! I miss the old days too but I’m learning to like the new stuff.

    That was a great review I felt, you should really get your brother on again when you review another film. As long as the both of you went to see it obviously :P

    That’s about how I would act if I was actually being serious. But in all honesty, I didn’t think the movie was that bad. They changed a few things, like with Arcee. But really, Arcee wasn’t all that important to the plot.

    I love how people tend to over-analyze things. It’s quite funny to watch. Almost like one of those bad sitcoms that you know is bad, but you can’t turn away because you know that the train wreck is just gonna get worse.

    Nice review, also when you were comparing it to other crappy movies what about “Indy 4″ is it better or worse than that?

    Didn’t see it, have no drive to. I figured if I saw the first one, this one would be no different. I’ll rent it from netflix or watch it if/when my friend, who really wanted to see it, buys it. I thought the first one was really mediocre although I did have fun watching it.

    I’m guessing you probably enjoyed Terminator 4 better than this, though.

    What I’m waiting for now is Public Enemies!

    i saw that movie last night. I was bored, and i needed something to do. i went to the theater, and saw it. now… i have to agree- it sucked. the plausability, (disregarding the whole “giant robot” thing) sucks. they pulled the “destiny” card. WTF WAS THAT?!? but it gave me what i was looking for. explosions, and megan fox.

    Noah,

    First of all let me say that I am a have been a huge fan of your work and have been following you for pretty much the duration of your time as an internet content creator. I’ve been watching your stuff pretty much since the beginning and as far as original internet content producers, you’re easily at the top of my favorites list. I also think you are one of the funniest and most creative guys on the net.

    That said, I’m seriously put off, disappointed, and ultimately embarrassed with your behavior here. You should seriously re-evaluate your life if the best thing you can think to do with it is insult other people whose opinion is different from yours on something as banal and insignificant as a movie.

    I hope you were playing it up or acting more pissed than you really are, because seeing a grown man insult and disrespect his own audience for not sharing his opinion on something as ultimately trivial as a fighting robots movie is absolutely and utterly pathetic.

    Hate on the movie all you want. You’re certainly entitled to your opinion, and for the most part I agree with you–I thought this movie was terrible.

    However, to insult and belittle your own audience for not completely sharing your opinion is indicative that you’ve got some serious personal issues.

    Don’t attack your audience, man. You lower yourself to the level of a common troll (albeit a troll whose words–because of his own ego and ultimately worthless “internet celebrity” status–seem to carry more weight than most others.)

    Other thing ticking me off here is hypocrisy.

    You say nobody should ever see this movie because they shouldn’t give money to support such horrendous films, yet you’ve PURCHASED and collected DVDs based on the sole reason that they are crap? How is that not the exact same thing? You’re still supporting crap cinema (and crap games while we’re at it) either way.

    And you somehow think that using the excuse that you’re a “critic” means you have more of a “right” to see a shitty movie? That your nerd powers somehow allow you to withstand the barrage of idiocy that may come at you and leave the theater without being dumber? Do you think somehow that you’re “taking one on the chin” for the good of the american public by going to see this? Is your ego that huge, man?

    As I’ve gathered it, you hated the first one. You pretty much had already decided you weren’t going to enjoy this sequel at all to begin with–yet you went and saw it anyway, with another person you knew wouldn’t enjoy it–THEN you had the balls to tell off your viewers for doing the same thing.

    Do you seriously think you’re providing some kind of relevant service here that affords you some level of respect different from what others should receive? Do you expect that your opinion is any more relevant than anyone else’s? No. What you do is first and foremost–entertainment.

    You’re not Roger Ebert–you’re a basement-dwelling, comic book reading, role-playing nerd and gamer geek just like all the rest of us, and don’t you ever forget it.

    Spoony, your barely contained homicidal rage is a hilarious thing to behold. I find myself almost hoping for a Transformers 3, just so I can see you raging out about it.

    However, the assertion that this movie could possibly be worse than Twilight is so outrageous that I just HAVE to go and see it. I wasn’t going to, and I really, really don’t want to, but a claim like that leaves me with little choice but to experience the horror for myself, to see if it can stand up to the unending pit of despair that was Twilight.

    Once again, my morbid curiosity has made me into a part of the problem.

    I thought at the point about halfway through that the movie was setting up for a third movie much like Pirates of the Carribean by killing Optimus Prime and being like “come back next time when he comes back to life!”

    The parents made me upset.

    The Egypt scenes were right out of Indy 4… not a good thing. ever.

    I could cut this movie to an hour and forty-five minutes without cutting any of the action.

    The whole Sam breaking his hand thing and Megan Fox making a cast in the DESERT! FU**ING DESERT! DESERT!

    D-E-S-E-R-T!

    Oh man… bad

    “You’re not Roger Ebert–you’re a basement-dwelling, comic book reading, role-playing nerd and gamer geek just like all the rest of us, and don’t you ever forget it.”

    Wow, seeing your comical hatred makes me wanna buy 50 tickets for this movie and donate all of my savings to Michael Bay, just to anarchistically contribute to the apocalypse and spite you…………….

    ……….just kidding.

    What’s pissed me off most about Michael Bay is the amount of talent he manages to get for his movies, Steve Buscemi, Ewen Bremner (Julien, cut it out), and he doesn’t hone that talent whatsoever, instead focusing on the explosions. Pearl Harbor, a bombastic and ill-conceived attempt at nobility and art could have been good, but in the hands of Michael Bay the cast were given bad dialogue and melodrama overkill, and the actual attack is offensively shot like the death star trench run. I actually almost feel bad for Bay, because you could just tell he gave it his all, he really strove to make something worthwhile, and it just bombed (no pun intended). And somehow I think that’s why he’s doing films like Transformers, he’s so bitter and cynical over the failure of what he intended to be his magnum opus that he just decided to sodomize willing audiences through clever marketing with inhuman, noisy garbage.

      Actually, Pearl Harbor wasn’t Bay’s fault. It was the studio’s.

    To answer your question about why nobody in the world of Transformers 2 knows that giant robots exist is because, well… yeah, everyone DID film them fighting in LA with cameras and phones… the trouble is, in the world of Transformers, everyone films like Michael Bay, so it’s impossible to tell what’s going on.

    “Yeah, those could be giant robots, I guess. It could also be merry-go-round. How long is this video? …SERIOUSLY!? I just don’t care enough.”

    Oh! And to respond to the comment just left by Rock: I think a co-op video with Miles would be great. You guys should play Obscure: The Aftermath. It’s a two-player survival horror goof fest that ripes for riffing. It’s also very cheap and easy to come by. It practically mocks itself.

    It has a retard chainsaw fight in it, Spoony. I’m not kidding you. Two people — who are mentally retarded — fight each other. With chainsaws.

    Barabbas, I completely forgot about that. I noticed Spoony probably inadvertently (synonym anyone?) covered his own ass. He said it was “Your fault”, but I don’t recall him saying we were less of a person than he was. That, and he openly admitted to being hypocritical in that article. Which, to say, everyone can be guilty of, including me.

    I seriously did not know there was a new Transformers movie out. I check rottentomatoes.com almost daily out of boredom. How the hell Spoony was the first to inform me of this movie’s existence is .. quite frankly awesome. I am thinking my mind is hypnotized to consciously ignore anything Michael Bay puts out. I had to actively be looking for it on the Opening menu to see it.

    FYI Spoony, I have you beat on the number of times a human being has watched Battlefield Earth. (BFE in Scientology lingo) I worked as a projectionist at an United Artists movie theater when that came out and the goddam production company sent me 2 defective reels.

    Total times I had to watch that movie on the job was 4.
    Total tickets we sold to that movie was less than 100.
    Total days it stayed on the projector, 10.

    I also have a theory behind those Dutch angles. The director shot the movie in that way for convenience to the audience because he assumed anybody watching the movie was forcibly bent over a barrel.

    I have seen Battlefield Earth 2 times now. I have seen it once with Rifftrax and the other time without. Believe me, I wanted to fling my boot at the computer monitor as I sat alone, trying to grasp how John Travolta could be far superior to Darth Vader (Travola’s words, mind you.) In fact, ya know… I’d say that this movie could very well be worse than Battlefield Earth, and I haven’t even seen it.

    Watch Undefeatable (which is on Youtube, complete) and see if that’s worse than Transformers. You haven’t seen hilarity until you’ve watched Undefeatable.

    Your Quarantine review spurred me to see the movie in theaters. I laughed my ass off at that piece of shit film ( before that I cried a little bit on the inside.) THIS movie on the other hand I wouldn’t touch with a hazmat suit. No way in hell am I seeing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and this review justifies WHY I shouldn’t touch it.

    It was harsh, but you make a lot of good points. That’s what I like about you internet cynics, you give REASONS why you like a movie. My parents marked this supposed abomination on the calendar and are looking forward to seeing it; I’m trying to convince them to go to Land of the Lost first and see something a little more worthwhile. They get free tickets for helping out with displays, so I might go along with them if they DO see Transformers 2 just so I can confirm how crap it is (or is not) and not feel bad about it.

    All I can say to AkewsticRockR is fuck you for turning on someone you claim to adore after one little disagreement, but I will say that Spoony comes off a touch hypocritical. I’m honestly a little torn; the fact remains that Noah and Miles PAID to see this movie, but so long as they’re willing to look in the mirror and say “fuck you too” I really couldn’t care less.

    I enjoyed the movie, i’m am a know idiot though, i however enjoyed the entire film (as in 73%) of it. I liked the battles, i liked the graphics, i LOVED the Decepticons, i loved the fact that Bouf STABED HIMSELF IN THE EYE WITH THE MATRIX (hope the DVD has a blooper reel). The 27% i didnt like were most of the comic relif points that they pointed out. I agree. But stuff like the blonde girl and the teleportation, if you know you Transformers Mytho’s well and think about it, it makes sense.
    (if you want me to expain them, or any other questions, send me a e-mail at rabid_cow_2002@yahoo.com and i will. I don’t wanna be a dick and fill up an entire page).

    Also, before i get booted out of the spoony fan club for likeing the movie, i have a great idea….Do a Lets Watch of Twilight.
    Take like 15-20min of the movie, watch and comment. You get more 10yr girls comeing to your site and yelling at you that way noah.

    1. Transformers that could turn into humans were called “Pretenders,” and were a part of the original cartoon. It was not something made up by the Michael Bay crew.
    2. The movie is directed old and new Transformers fans alike, who actually understand the franchise is directed towards selling toys and merchandise. That was the original intention of the cartoon movie to begin with.
    3. Characters have been resurrected in the cartoons. It’s not anything new.
    4. I’m sorry a 4 year old was more capable of understanding what was on screen than you. I didn’t know Arcee, Ratchet, Ironhide, the twins, Sideswipe, etc. were hard to distinguish on screen. God, too much yellow and pink.
    5. The U.S. military in this movie is probably more effective than that being portrayed in other films. “Oh noes Aliens, we can’t do shit.” For crying out loud, the U.S. military in Transformers 2 took out Devastator with 1 rail gun blast. You’d think all the humans would be useless, but they actually manage to kill off some Decepticons.
    6. “Why would the Fallen only be defeated by a Prime?” Well, genius, because The Fallen IS a prime, so only one as strong can defeat him. Dur hur.
    7. If Sam intended to keep transformers a secret from the public, WHY WOULD he take Bumblebee to campus? Dur hur.

    It’s sad to see you not being able to sit back and enjoy a “shit kicking film,” especially when you should have recalled Transformers was always been about that to begin with.

    1. Transformers that could turn into humans were called “Pretenders,” and were a part of the original cartoon. It was not something made up by the Michael Bay crew.
    2. The movie is directed old and new Transformers fans alike, who actually understand the franchise is directed towards selling toys and merchandise. That was the original intention of the cartoon movie to begin with.
    3. Characters have been resurrected in the cartoons. It’s not anything new.
    4. I’m sorry a 4 year old was more capable of understanding what was on screen than you. I didn’t know Arcee, Ratchet, Ironhide, the twins, Sideswipe, etc. were hard to distinguish on screen. God, too much yellow and pink.
    5. The U.S. military in this movie is probably more effective than that being portrayed in other films. “Oh noes Aliens, we can’t do shit.” For crying out loud, the U.S. military in Transformers 2 took out Devastator with 1 rail gun blast. You’d think all the humans would be useless, but they actually manage to kill off some Decepticons.

    NOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Idiocracy is right! Ass: The Movie (literally, thanks to John Turturro) is the best selling movie in the country. Run Spoony! This species no longer has a future. Michael Bay has destroyed us all.

    Seriously, the saddest thing is that all the people who are going to watch Transformers 2 probably watched The Dark Knight last year. Apparently, even the Dark Knight isn’t good enough to give the general public a sense of taste. For Shame, Humanity. For Shame.

    P.S. Isn’t it great that the first post I nutted up to submit to Spoony’s site involves John Turturro’s ass in Michael Bay’s shit?

    Spoony I love you man but out of respect I turned off your review about half way through. I’m a big fan of Transformers. I love them and have seen every US series, Car Robots, have probably over 1000 figures, and so on. Yet I loved this movie. I had no problems with it. Yes it was long, but I see it as getting more bang for my buck. Is it Shakespearean story telling? Hell no! I loved the last movie and loved this more. I wanted giant robots fighting each other and explosions. I got what I expected. I left happy. I don’t expect masterful story telling in a Transformer film.

    I’m a fan of MST3K too man. I seen most every episode from season 2+. I know bad movies when I see them man. This is hardly that bad.

    I had ZERO trouble telling who was who. Only ones I had no idea who they were were some of the Cons near the end who were hunting for sam and mikeala in Cairo. But they were nameless drones most likely.

    As for the “Racial Stereotypes”.. I didn’t see that. I see more dumb ass white hick kids act like that than I ever see black kids. Therefor I saw the twins as stupid ass hick teens trying to be cool and gangsta. I laughed my ass off at them.

    I stopped watching your review because I saw where you were going and I didn’t want to lose any of the respect I have for you. I love your videos man. ToplessRobot.com for the past few weeks has been bashing the film left and right. Seems they are doing it mostly for the jumping on the bandwagon.

    It is a decent film for turning your brain off and just enjoying the ride. If I want a masterfully told story I’ll go see Up from Pixar. TF2 is what is supposed to be.. A big action movie with giant robots fighting…

    Astrotrain:
    1) Pretenders didn’t turn into humans. Do a little research before spouting off.
    2) If the film is directed towards selling merchandise, why does it contain so much material totally unsuited to the normal market for toys, children?
    3) Prime was resurrected after a public fucking outcry.
    4) These character designs are terrible, and blur into each other in motion. Do you know why comic book characters all tend to have vibrant, easily distinguishable colour schemes? So you can easily tell who’s who when there’s a load of them in the same panel. Bay could learn from this.
    5) Which is ironic, given it’s a film where the US military should be useless. If humans can take down Devastator, why are the Autobots even here?
    6) That makes no fucking sense. So, what, only another member of the Antwiler family can defeat Spoony?
    7) Yeah, it would be impossible to keep him secret, what with him being disguised and all,

    People who enjoy this film are what is wrong with society. If you liked this film, then for the good of us all, throw yourself under a bus. Preferably after castrating yourself. We cannot afford for you to reproduce.

    1) Pretenders can turn into biological lifeforms. Humans ain’t really farfetched. At all.
    2) Because the movie is PG-13.
    3) Stop being a G1douche. Prime’s resurrected several times in other series, along with other transformers.
    4) Okay. Your opinion, so that’s fine.
    5) I agree to a degree; the U.S military was too damn strong. The Decepticons should’ve created a greater means of defense, or bolstered their shield technologies.
    7) Bumblebee CAME to campus, unless you’re mentioning some scene post movie that I don’t recall. Did you miss the entire point of the ‘departure’ scene at home?

    You guys are completely, utterly impossible to please. This movie, hell — the FRANCHISE — has never been anything more but a commercial with lasers and transforming robots. The Transformers (or Bayformers for you Geewunners) are just summer flicks meant to be fun, over-the-top action flicks with OH MY GOD WHAT’S THIS GIANT ROBOTS IN MY SUMMER HOLLYWOOD MOVIE? UNPOSSIBLE.

    If you’re looking for a decent story, then you’re looking in the wrong place. If you all are so well-versed in story-structure and film, then you should have been able to see what the ‘Bayformer’ movies WERE. They’re military-on-robot porn with LENSFLARE and butt shots. Oh lawd, too much CG? Let’s get some animatronics to represent Optimus Prime on screen! No? Bad idea? Inb4 BUT JURASSIC PARK DID IT HURRRRRR.

    I’m a cynical jackass and even I enjoyed the shit out of this film. The movie is stupid. The pacing was eugh. But it was entertaining. Very entertaining. For this to even be some titanic hate-train discussion is absurd. Anybody with a brain cell could tell what this movie was just by the trailer alone. n

    You might not want to begin a review ever again with a self-righteous proclamation about how it’s only okay for you to spend money on a movie because you’re a reviewer. It’s cool you think that movies are some torturous endeavor you’re sparing the rest of us from, but you’re no martyr so stop acting like one. You’re a e-reviewer at that, you don’t get screenings for free. Thus for you to tell us what to do with our money is all the more hypocritical.

    As for the movie, most of your points were just plain wrong but there are so many sycophants on here too busying with their nose up your ass to point them out.

    The one that probably annoyed me most was how ineffective you think the military was. If anything they were too effective. On the ground units keeping the decepticons at bay with m16s, rpgs and artillery, ineffective? The fucking transformers have laser cannons. Yeah I guess the military is fucking useless dealing with lasers when all they have are bullets and missiles. I’m not going to even bother with the rail gun that takes devastator out in one blow. Because apparently, according to you, our navy is supposed to be able to take on robots that can submerge underwater and travel to depths we can’t even reach ourselves in less than a couple seconds.

    I am going to see this tomorrow but after this review clearly the only way that I can enjoy this is to be drunk enough to laugh at the stupid humor. If I was back in high school I might still have found this stuff funny but it isn’t even like Scary Movie where that humor was just so over the top you couldn’t help but laugh at that immature age.

    Thankfully, I am seeing this at a drive in theater so I am justifying giving my 8 bucks to Star Trek for a third time. And because it is a drive in I can continue to drink the whole 2.5 hours of this crap. I have seen most of the movies you guys have brought up and it scares me to see this movie. Being drunk is my last resort…my final escape.

    I am going to see this tomorrow but after this review clearly the only way that I can enjoy this is to be drunk enough to laugh at the stupid humor.

    JTurnblat,

    At what point did I “turn” on Noah? Did I say or otherwise imply that I wasn’t going to watch his videos anymore or that I now hate him?

    Not in the least.

    Still love his stuff, so I don’t see why a “fuck you” to me is justified. I’ll continue to support his quality content, but I’m not going to put up with being attacked for having a differing opinion nor should any of the rest of us have to. If we’re the problem, then he’s just as guilty if not guiltier.

    Not that the result ultimately matters at all, but sometimes I simply can’t shut up when something ticks me off.

    What many people missed was WHY Sam decided to leave Bee behind for college… He didn’t decide to leave him behind. The choice was already made for him if he wanted to attend the college. He says specifically, “If it was up to me, I’d bring you along but they have rules against freshman having cars on campus.” I’m going to go out on a limb and say you were just being funny when you proclaimed that it was only ok for reviewers to see the movie.

    I do agree that this movie needed a major cutting. You could literally cut every single Mudflap and skids shot out with some video editing and clever audio. Hell, it would be an interesting challenge to see you could come up with the best version with about 45-60 minutes cut out. I’ll give an example. The Smithsonian scene could have been cut down, big time. Show them looking at the Smithsonian from the outside then cut to them running up to Jetfire. I don’t think anyone would care, especially, when they are relieved of looking at a 40 foot wide ass. And all though their silly break in, I’m thinking “hurry up, I want to see Jetfire, damnit.” Another one is when they visit the restraunt, the moment Sam recognizes the ex-agent, they could cut right to his secret storage. My ass actually got dragged back, kicking and screaming with my parents, and among other things I noticed that you could cut out enough of Leo’s scenes to actually make him seem like he’s not a total (insert your colorful characterizations).

    What I’m saying is it is very possible for someone to video edit this thing and come up something of much much higher quality overall. Not saying it would great, but even if it was good, 150 minutes is awful long for a movie.

    I’ve never trusted Micheal Bay. I mean the guy ripped off a movie called Parts: The Clonus Horror. You know I’m surprised Noah didn’t mention The Island. I saw the first Transformers, bought the cheap DVD, and then my brother played it so many times he wrecked it, which is sad, the rifftrax for it was awesome. My brother thought Transformers was better than the Dark Knight. I am so ashamed of my family.

    But anyway, awesome review as always Noah. I’d actually seen a review from someone who liked the first one, just to get some perspective and when he said he hated it, and then you, I knew this was going to suck.

    I’ve got to say, barring UFO shows, Sasquatch specials and the Man VS. Beast Sextet, this is the most important piece of video-based American entertainment of the past 233 years. This is absolutely better than anything I have watched as a sentient adult beer drinking human.

    This is of course made better by the fact that I’ve not watched the motion picture in question.

    But come on! Any fucker reading this needs to realize that Spoony is not only the best possible Seth Greene, he is better than TELEVISION.

    Ok guys. If you are going to see a TRANSFORMERS movie for PLOT, shoot yourself in the face…right now. This movie almost to a T captures the original series. What does plot matter, you just wanted to see robots blow each other up. Seriously, you need to walk into this movie with the mindset you had when you were a kid and watched the first Transformers movie, dont analyze it as an adult, enjoy it as a KID.

    If something like this gets under your skin, seek anger management and do it as soon as possible or you’ll have problems in your adult life. I’ve already said, this is the internet, you’ll go insane if you take everything personally.

    On a sidenote; I just watched Gran Torino and was blown away by how outstanding that movie was. If that wasn’t Clint Eastwood’s best, I’d certainly love to see what is.

    I totally agree with you.

    This movie is much worse than the first one, which wasn’t too good at the first place.

    It’s way too long and confusing. The shapes of the robots are too complicated and, except for Optimus Prime and Bumblebee, they all look the same. When they fight it’s just a mass of metal sheets and you can’t even tell who’s who.

    There is no clear plot, no characters development for neither humans nor robots. Plus all the unfunny jokes and those two idiot robots…Please, mercy!

    I’m very disappointed: both of the movies are totally different from the animated series (I was a big fan) and badly produced and directed.

    Avoid it if you can.

    I’m not mad so much as sad that they spent so much money on this movie and it didn’t really show much beyond CGI. Also, I think we should just admit that it’s not Hollywood’s fault these things come out in the form they do… it’s the fault of the people that buy the tickets. I’m tellin ya, IQ levels these days are dropping so fast I can’t even keep up. Thank goodness I didn’t get whatever fucken ‘brain damage virus’ is goin around yet. Hollywood just puts out what marketing polls show them will sell, so again, blame the stupid adults and stupider teens that buy the tickets. As long as they get thrown a ‘treat’ they are happy… those of us that require an actual meal however, are outta luck.

    Oh Spoony, I did not think the first movie was THAT bad. I thought, “Okay, maybe this movie will be better. Usually the second movie is better and they fix their mistakes.” Wow, F*** that. This movie was complete garbage. The “twins” needed to be killed instantly. Also, there were ton of autobots that got about 2 seconds of screen time that got one line if that, and yet we had to listen to the dumb ass twins for the entire time. The toilet humor was beyond annoying and the action was lame. Also, the human characters are annoying and I wished they would all die.

    Personally I’m more offended by some of these comments than anything Spoony said in his review. He ripped the shit out of the movie and “insulted” everyone who paid to see it, but he never told any of his fans to throw themselves under a fucking bus. When Spoony says “FUCK YOU!” it’s funny, because we know for a fact he isn’t really going to camp outside the line for Transformers 3 with a flamethrower, and obviously he doesn’t -really- hate his own brother, or humanity in general. He’s having an emotional breakdown because this is what we all want to see.

    The basement dwellers who come into threads like this just to rage and angst about this stuff are the worst, at least with Spoony I’m entertained, he’s got charisma, and I love watching every one of his reviews. You guys actually believe this shit and are probably seriously enraged by the fact that people are strange and like things that you don’t. You are faceless, nameless nobodies, nothing you say matters, and I have to question how you got such a big ego in the first place and deluded yourself into thinking people care and want to see what YOU have to say.

    Not that I’m trying to argue that Transformers 2 was “good” by any stretch of the imagination, if you try to lump me in with that crowd you’re grasping at straws. I seriously think we all just need to lighten up a bit.

    Also, if it weren’t for bad movies we wouldn’t have good ones. :p

    That was amazing. I So HATED this movie. I am incredibly sorry that I paid for it. The fact that other people enjoyed this, and all the news coverage Michael Jackson’s Death has grossly received. I too hate humanity now. And by the way, Miles was really good. if he ever wants to do a Vlog with you again, it would be cool. You guys work well together, which isn’t always the case with brothers.

    What makes -me- laugh is the fact that half of these people saying “Oh yeah, I’m gonna go out and watch this ‘horrible’ movie first thing tomorrow, and bring all my friends and family and arrive early so we can uh…laugh at it, yeah!” probably secretly WANT to see it but are playing up the whole “Oh I’m just going to criticize it the whole time like Spoony and not enjoy it in any way!” thing to cover their asses.

    I have no doubt its bad though, the first movie wasn’t exactly a masterpiece I’ll admit, but I enjoyed it simply for the action’s sake and suffered through all the retarded crap (the whole unrealistic love story bothered me, but it’s Hollywood and there has to be some human interaction in it, but the excessive comedic relief in the form of the parents, Optimus saying “my bad”, Jazz, Sector 7, etc…gah!). But some of the things I’ve heard about this movie, it’s just too much. The twins, robot balls, even more crap with the parents and the stupid Sector 7 guy (who honestly wanted to see more of him, especially THAT much more?!)…if it really is WORSE than the first one then I’m not sure the action is really worth sitting through the rest of it.

    When I planned on going to the theater I wasn’t kidding myself in any way, I knew exactly what I was going to be paying to see: mindless robot violence. Despite all the first movie’s flaws I still had fun, enough fun to go and watch it two more times and buy the DVD on the day of release. But this…I dunno.

    They trust Noah when he says a movie is bad, because they know Noah has a movie taste similar to theirs. Come to think of it, it is quite brilliant that critics do influence people even when the billion-dollar marketing machine is working completely against them.

  • Facepalm

    Spoony hates me ;_;

    Just watched it and had seen no reviews or anything beforehand that could have made me biased. While watching I didn’t bother judging the plot or anything, I just wanted the comedy scenes to finish so the Autobots could do things. In retrospect yes there was no plot and the scenes were terribly assembled into a padded mess that made no sense. Or rather, it had multiple plot threads that never went anywhere. All of those comic relief characters had no business being there and the toilet humor was annoying. Although I don’t know why but the twin bots only bothered me because they had too much screentime. If they had acted that way for just a couple of scenes I’d have been fine with them. Most of the time their roles could have been better served by the other Autobots that did nearly nothing like Arcee and Sideswipe. They had no idea how to use the characters. Oh and Jetfire didn’t bother me, beard or no. I do agree that most of the Decepticons looked too similar though.

    Compared with the great potential of the franchise, the movie was horrible. However by pretty much ignoring the padding I did have a good time with my friends watching the Autobots. If it had just been them fighting with maybe just a basic plot about something It wouldn’t be so bad. Now characterization and properly setting up a scene, that would really help it.

  • BeastWars78

    Sorry Spoony, but I have to disagree with you. I saw it THREE times (~7.5 hours) since its release (today being 6/27/09) and I found it mostly enjoyable, albeit the running time was a bit long. Now let me begin by saying that I never saw the original Transformers (the animated series), I was a fan of Beast Wars (as my name implies). What’s your beef with bearded decepticons, specifically Jetfire? You bitch and complain about not being able to differentiate between transformers, but when certain transformers do have identifiable traits you complain about those characteristics which separate them from the generic transformers you bitched about. As for the “stereotypes” in Transformers 2, take a page from the late George Carlin and lighten up would ya? How does the depiction of Mudflap and Skids personally affect you? I sat next to black people during one of my times and none of them were externally offended by the Jar Jar Binks Twins and they even laughed at most of the comedy associated with them. The voice actor of Mudlfap (Reno Wilson) happens to be black. Why would actors portray characters if they found the depiction offensive. I’m not defending racism, but lighten up people. Spoony, I found both the use of the word “midget” in this review or saying “That’s gay” in others to be offensive. If you’re going to be politically correct for one group, then please have some consistency and don’t be insensitive to homosexuals or little people. Now, you probably think I dislike the work that you do (presuming you read this), which is the farthest thing from the truth. I find your work entertaining, just as I found Transformer 2 entertaining… all THREE times I watched it.

    P.S. For an awesomely bad video game, try Lifeline for the PS2.

    i felt you was too harsh on it yes there was a lot of corny jokes in it which i hated and the story was everywhere too fast, but it really didn’t bother me as much as it did with you and i enjoy the mindless action … i loved the fact they gave Starscream much more screen time with Megatron, but Starscream wasn’t that much of a pussy in the cartoon and Soundwave sounded cool, but he should be on earth helping Megatron! …. Overall i enjoy it tho .. sorry lol

    Well you know you should have seen this coming cmon. I agree the plot is shit but it was forsawn since its inception

    First its Transformers, all you can expect are giant robots fighting each other. Thats what every one thinks of when you say transformers.

    Second its Micheal Bay, therefore you should know that its going to be stupid plot holes and explosions, which some people need from time to time. I dont think there are any of his movies with a complete plot.

    I expect, rather I hope, that if there is any worth left of humanity, that like a year from now, those same people that are seriously defending T2, will look back and feel bad about themselves for defending a movie that actually features robot balls, and goes for the cheap joke.

    Well you know you should have seen this coming cmon. I agree the plot is shit but it was forsawn since its inception

    First its Transformers, all you can expect are giant robots fighting each other. Thats what every one thinks of when you say transformers.

    Finally thank god someone who HATES the Transformer’s movie’s as much as I do I applaud your every word and agree with you on all your point’s, these movies are so hyped up and overblown I can barely even begin to comprehend it, I had to listen to my friend yesterday talk about it on the phone for over an hour as he praised its every point and could not understand why I so loathe Michael Bay. Let me just say this one more time THANK YOU you are the light in the darkness, and I don’t know what i would have done had i not found someone else who see’s this movie for what it is, garbage. Peace

    Two things:
    1. Awesome. Just awesome. Pure hate for Transformers.
    2. The Dark Knight should be ripped on in the exact same way. Most of the problems you guys have with Transformers 2 are the same things that made TDK a piece of crap.

    When you burn the theatre down, I hope it’s during a Batman/Transformers crossover.

    I love it when Spoony reviews something that absolutely everyone went to see.

    The amount of butthurt in the 36 odd pages of comments is staggering. Spoony gets major points from me for simply invoking this emotional outpouring.

    Really

    This is worse than most political, religious and video game related debates on the internet.

    Wow, looks like Spoonyone really knocked over the hornet’s nest with this one. It’s my opinion that 200 million dollars should be more than enough to buy a good story and awsome action. Seriously, why do people defend this thing as a mindless action flick? Seriously, folks, we shouldn’t have to compromise anymore. Demand great story telling and awsome special effects from your entertainment.

    Michael Bay won’t be directing Transformers 3 or any other action movie for that matter. According to him, he’s tired of explosions, car chases and gunfights. From now on, he wants to be taken as a serious filmmaker, and his next project will be a tearjerking drama. Since Bay is out of the picture, Paramount is looking for another director to replace him. McG being one of the choices they’re considering as of now….

    The best antidote for “mindless action flick” defenders is this: Terminator 2. Robots fighting each other, with human survival hanging in the balance. With a plot that DIDN’T suck. With acting, writing, and directing that was incredibly awesome, alongside tense and incredible action sequences.

    If you believe action flicks *have* to be mindless, and you accept that, then Hollywood has no reason to feed you anything *other* than mindless action flicks.

    I was begged to go see this piece of crap, and I really think we were in the same theater full of douche bags, because people applauded this garbage as well. I hated it! It just goes to show how idiotic today’s movie goer is. I agree 100% with everything you said. Movie blew!

    I had a lot of fun watching that. As a Transformers fan for 25 of my 30 years, I despised this movie with a flaming passion. And I even liked the first live action film, I gave it a pass. Because it didn’t have balls, humping and bad stereotypes. One thing I totally agree with you is the reaction to the rest of the audience cheering. This also horrified me, and further reinforced my suspicions that the general movie-going population is stupid enough to enjoy anything with explosions and Megan Fox.

    P.S.
    I hate Megan Fox.

    I have watched many of Spoony’s reviews. I have also found them extremely hilarious. However, after watching this review, I have finally understood that Spoony’s taste in humor has begun stale. For a man who cannot find any sort of enjoyment in large explosions and robots, it is sad to see that someone can actually loose their childhood excitement. Now i have watched many different vids, especially the Phantasmagoria videos (if you found these things humourous, then the expression “you have the personality of a wet dish towel” is completely applicable). To listen to these comparisons of what he would watch, him picking some of the most god awful movies ever made, puts a sick taste in my mouth. There is no need for anyone to want to reply to this clip, for i will not ever see the reply’s. For some time now i have gone onto this website, even have it on my hotkey setup. But now i will delete it, forever washing away the awful memories and the time that i wasted on this website. Noah, if you ever read this, I want you to ask yourself something:
    What happened in your childhood that made you forget why movies are here? Have you completely lost your innerchild and now only find amusement in artsy-talking films that for the most part no one has heard of? In the rough times we are facing, sometimes all we need is an amusing movie to help take us a couple of those hours away from this word and somewhere else. I am not saying that Transformers Revenge of the Fallen was a great movie, nor was it better than its predecessor. But it did exactly what we wanted: To give us laughs, to give us shouts, and to enjoy it with children and adults.
    I will not call you an asshole, nor any other word. Instead I can remove you from any sort of internet search, never to hear your voice and the corrupted nature of your reviews.

    Hi Spoony, me again. I wish I’d remembered to post this yesterday, but it totally slipped my mind. Transformers CAN disguise themselves as humans, they’re called PRETENDERS. And as for teleportation, Skywarp from Generation 1 COULD teleport.

    You fucking poser. You claim to be a huge Transformers nerd but you don’t even know this basic shit. I don’t think you were ever a Transformers fan at all, you’re just raging for the sake of raging and because you hate Michael Bay. Fuck you.

    Holy cow, PPDr, you’re quite right. I’m always stunned when I see people overreacting like this – because of a negative review, nonetheless.
    I’d like people to think about it just for a moment. It has already been stated that Spoony reviews are mainly for entertainment value. Knowing that, do you really think that whatever Noah said justifies rage, flames, and the like? Well, if you do, you should REALLY sort your priorities right. Or, sure, you can go on hyperventilating and frothing over a monitor (we all know Internet IS serious business) while the world crumbles to dust outside your window.

    well spoony nice review
    altho i mostly disagree
    transformers 2 was better than 1 because there were a lot more BOT fights
    an this time the autobots aren’t weak, not just winning because their good but because they have skills

    but a do agree it was a tad long, and all the stupid moments could have been cut out

    i perssonaly would have liked to see more scennes with jetfire, because i like black birds

    and the real final battle was way weak, felt like one shot, they should have started whent sam arives at the university
    and use the time for a more awsom ending

    so i think you are a bit harsh and realy going for hating it

    ho and there is no draw the travolta movie is horrible

    ho yeh you know you briher kinda look like the cia guy in the series chuck (supposed to be a compliment)

    About the “It’s just a mindless action movie, enjoy it” comments. There are generally three types of action movie: The great ones that push the enevlope, like Terminator 2 or The Matrix, Fun ones, which aren’t great, but have enough redemming features to be enjoyable, like Equilibrum or Demolition Man. Finally, there’s the mindless ones that can’t be bothered to do anything but revel in stupidity and cliches. Why pay money to see one of those?

    Thanks, Spoony, you saved me some cash!

    People who are defending this abomination I have one statement for you: the MOST important device for story telling, going back to our distant ancestors sitting at campfires and telling tales was and always will be to FORM A PLOT.

    Enjoyed every minute of this review. I know better these days. I don’t buy into any pop culture bullshit that is being force fed into our faces. I use a cell phone to TALK on, and its pre paid. I use a car to get form A to B *yes its old and paid for*. I mean, this movie is everything that is wrong with this world today. Fuck Hollywood.

    Fun review. You should have dialogues more often, they work really well for you.

    Spoony needs to vent his rage on whoever thought it was FUCKING BRILIANT to remake Alien. I’ll admit I felt the beggining was a bit to long and boring, but HOW DARE THEY. Let’s hope Micheal Bay doesn’t get his grubby little hands on this one. I spend most of my time watching horror and sci-fi movies, so I’ve seen the good, the ok, and the Shit list. C’mon Hollywood nmake a good horror movie that isn’t a remake, which reminds me Freddy Kruger’s getting a new asshole, with his remake.

    I had an excuse too. I got to see it for free and I knew from the start that it was going to be bad. But you are right, I was not ready for how bad this movie was really going to be!

    Hi Spoony, just wanted to say you’re right 100%, and you’re right to be ANGRY; I just wish more moviegoers were like you, maybe Hollywood producers would be forced to bring back creativity and good writing to today’s cinema. Don’t worry about fanboys and people who think action movies are all about action and explosions: they never understood what made great movies (Terminator, Aliens, Robocop, Predator, Raiders of the Lost Ark) REALLY great, they just enjoyed the experience on the surface – after all, those masterpieces have something for everyone, even the ignorant ones who enjoy today’s all-CGI soulless abominations. Finally, here’s someone who thinks those CGI Transformers are a pile of junk that doesn’t make any sense (most japanese mecha designers could teach a couple of things to ILM guys); finally, here’s someone who doesn’t just describe a movie as “adequate”, or “ok for an action movie”, just ’cause he doesn’t want to admit he wasted time and money. And it’s not a matter of TASTE: saying you like The Godfather more than Goodfellas, or Alien more than The Thing, now that’s a matter of taste. A bad movie is a bad movie. Keep fightin’ and please make more hilarious reviews like this one!

    A friend called me yesterday to tell me that he just watched transformers2 and how much he enjoyed it. after yelling at him that this shit represents everything that is wrong with summer-blockbuster movies i asked him if he could tell me the story.

    after thinking for about 10 seconds he realized that he was just mesmerized by all the blinking lights

    There are much worse to worry about in the movie world than transformers and its associated parts,

    For example the twilight saga, that will slowly kill movies as we know it, horrible source material plus horrible actors quals bullshit on a stick.
    Another thing thats probably going be epic fail is GI Joe… people are going to see it for the explosions and leave without a brain.

    Finally, I see that hollywood has gotten another anime to eviscerate in Avatar:the Last Airbender, im going to say that this movie looks like it is going to kick fans of the series in the balls and steal their money.

    I just have one thing to say. In the FIRST 30 SECONDS OF YOUR REVIEW you state that “Who wouldn’t like to see giant fucking robots beat the shit out of eachother?”. And yet somehow you’re condemning people for going to see a movie that does exactly that? If you somehow think it’s overanalyzed shortcomings outweigh what the movie is specifically tailored to be (a no-brain giant robot action flick) then you AND ALL YOUR FANS SPOONY are seriously deluding themselves into an extreme state of pretentiousness.

    I love your game reviews/videos, Spoony, but your movie critiques usually just echo a lot of the complaints i have with the movie critic community in general. People like you are why great movies like V for Vendetta average a metacritic of 70 on rotten tomatoes and shit like Monster’s Inc averages 100. Fuck. You…. still love ya tho. Lol

    People give money to Bay and that piece of shit Terminator and don’t give any fucking money to people like Raimi. I have been saying fuck America for a long time. When someone finally makes a movie for fans, a good movie for fans, he gets fucked in the box office while people will dish out tons of money to Bay, FUCKING BAY IS THE WORST MAINSTREAM DIRECTOR. I refuse to pay for any of his movies, the only reason I watched Transformers was because there was a Rifftrax of it and I had to borrow that movie because again I refuse to be associated with idiots that give Bay money. Transformers sucked, Cloverfield sucked, Terminator Salvation sucked, and Pearl Harbor,which made soooooo much fucking money, was a cinematic abortion, what the fuck is wrong with you America. I make posts like this in imdb and I’ll have one in every 3 people agreeing with me while everyone else will say they liked Quarantine or the remake of Halloween, it’s like fucking why?

    Fuck you America. You give money to piles of shit with golden flakes sprinkled on top for a shiny effect. You think movies like TDK are the best movies ever made because it was one of the few good movies to be released in a long time and it blows your mind when you actually pay for something that isn’t a movie that is only good because of attractive actors and special effects. You hear that Transformers 2 is worse than 1, a shitty fucking movie and YOU GIVE BAY MORE MONEY ENCOURAGING HIM TO MAKE WORSE MOVIES. Fuck all of you that complain about Spoony’s opening rant, he is 100% correct. I have been saying the same god damn thing for years.

    @ Neobara RT rates how many critics like it, it has nothing to do with their actual scores. RT is way more accurate than that piece of shit IMDB. V was okay at most, V’s character is one of the worst characters in movie history. Watch the opening of several Dawson’s Creek episodes, he talks just like those fucking kids and I fucking hate those fucking kids. All intelligent like he knows everything but he just comes off as an unintelligent douche, I fucking hate people who talk like that.

    @ Zomgerz: “All intelligent like he knows everything”, huh? It sounds to me like you’re describing yourself, Spoony, and 90% of the pretentious film critics of the world who act as if they know what a universal “good movie” is. What it comes down to is who you are audience is. Spoony and his brother claim to be transformers fans, but perhaps they’re just the jaded percentile of movie goers who THINK they know what a good transformers movie should be. All the people clapping at the end of that movie were fans of transformers because they got what they paid for, subjectively funny “padding” or not. And what they paid for was Optimus kicking the shit out of Decepticons. End of story. Anything further is just nitpicking. Plain and simple.
