Transformers 2 Deconstructed

This is the funniest thing I've read in a looooong time. Don't read it if you haven't seen the movie (or plan to). Hat-tip to Trish for bringing it to my attention.

That. Was freakin' hilarious. I guess in the end, it's like going to see Jurassic Park 3. I didn't go for acting, storyline, or an ending that actually made some fucking sense. It would've been nice, but alas, you can't have everything. I went to see dinosaurs fuck people up. And I was not entirely disappointed! (It needed a lot more people for dinos to maim)

I still love Transformers 2. I agree, I didn't go for the acting or the high-falutin' plot, I went to see things I haven't seen before. Creatively done robots. It had them. And Ravage was awesome.

At least the reviewer at Topless Robot understood the plot. I hate all the reviews where people say the movie is indecipherable. Okay, the plot was not great, but it wasn't hard to understand.

The big thing that movie needed was an intro scene. They could have done it easily in the army hangar. "You remember Ratchet and Ironhide? These are some of our new recruits, Arcee, Sideswipe, etc." And then outline their new Decepticon targets.
