I think that I will call this a new kind of thing that I would like to do. Actually the first one was going to be my thoughts about the digimon universe, but since I saw yesterday the new transformers movie, I have to rant about it first.
First of all, this is only my opinion, but there are a couple of things that you may not like but are true. So let's start. Also, I've realized a lot of things I disliked were mostly about Optimus character, so, sorry Optimus lovers.
Before starting, I have to state that I liked the movie. Overall, it was good for a Michael Bay thingy and after all it is like an anime about toys/cards, it is meant for kids to buy their stuff, so, what did you expect? Anyway. The human protagonists are thousands of times better than the last movies ones, these characters really had some worthy comic and emotional moments. And the love story here is way more awesome.
But again, this movie has lots of flaws that could have been fixed easily. But anyway, I'll mention them bellow.
CAUTION Minor spoilers ahead! CAUTIONPlot Holes, plot holes everywhere
Yes, tons of them. Tons of premises wasted and tons of elements that were a waste of screen time. You want to know which ones? See the movie.
Don't worry it isn't a spoiler. Yes, every human protagonist should have died in this movie. What I mean is that, with most falls and shakes, and transformers power hugs, the humans characters should have dust instead of bones, their necks should have broke dozens of times, without talking.Deifying gravity!
Something that I've never liked about some scenes is when a transformer makes something float in the air, normally small objects like the leadership matrix. But, well, you could say it is part of some macnetic field that transformers have developed. But damn, those robots (That you can easily see in the trailers) that to transform need to turn into millions of tiny cubes, can defy gravity and float around for a hell of time! I mean, if that material can do that, why can't all the robots float all the time?Rainbows
A really small spoiler. DA f*CK WITH THAT????? I mean, I don't have anything against bronies. Actually there is a brony somewhere inside of me. I'm in love with some of Flutershy humanifications and some episodes that I saw were kind of funny, like dexter's lab/powerpuff girls/Fairy Odd parents funny, (Oh, old cartoons, one day I should talk about that). But it is a transformers movie, I hope to see explosions, epic battles and the freaking dinobots! Not a pony. It was a cheap way of comedy that at least IMO, didn't work pretty well.Why the f*ck do you want a medic?
So, you, a human, which can't pay your bill because you suck at what you do and can't make anything work, can fix a transformer's engine in one night?? That's awesome. BTW, I will put here a minor rampant too. DAF*K with that hole in the ground at the barn, when did you did it???? Anyway, you want to know what is MORE awesome? That a transformer that is almost falling apart piece by piece, siemply goest and BOOM! You scan a new car and you get totally fixed! Again, why the fuck do you need a medic for?
That was a really dumb part of the movie IMO.Violence
Why would someone complain about violence in this kind of movie? Well, I do, specifically only one scene about a car, a baseball bat, a couple looking to buy a house and an afroamerican woman. I mean, again, cheap comedy (Yeah, I consider it a joke. If it wasn't supposed to be a joke, then it is worst that I've thought) that wasn't neither necessary nor effective. The same goes for Optimus prime attitude in this movie. For a wise leader, he is a moron. I mean, He, more than anyone else, should understand that even in the same planet, in the same group of individuals, there will always be people with different opinions and overall, there will always be good and bad people. You can't just judge everyone as the same. I've never been able to respect the optimus prime from these movies. Have you seen my lizard? Please, while you're killing each other try to search for it.
Ok, everyone knows how this movie will end, so even if it is a kind of big spoiler, who really cares about the story? Anyway. You win the battle and decide to leave the planet for an important mission, I understand that Optimus. But just a couple of hours/days ago, you saw how the other autobots almost killed each other to see who was going to be leader. And you still leave without saying anything? DAF*K??????!!!! Well, I suppose you trust your crew, even the fucking dinobots that only you can prevent to wreak havoc, because you know, YOU LET THEM LOOSE IN CHINA!!! That's why I can't respect you Optimus, you take really stupid decisions
Anyway, like I've said. It was a good movie, loved the new bots and battles. But it doesn't make me forget about the bad parts of it.
What do you thought about the movie? Did you like it? There's something you didn't like it? Leave a coment!
