Since I finally got around to seeing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, I’ve been able to scour the web for reviews, critiques, etc. Topless Robot’s FAQ sums up the movie better than most, and if you haven’t seen the movie and plan on it, be careful following the link (there be spoilers).
Some gems included are:
And why couldn’t an Autobot translate these symbols?
Because Bumblebee is mute and the Racist Twins are poor black robots from the slums of Cybertron who never learned how to read. It’s a sad commentary on Cybertronian society. Like The Wire, actually.
Can you explain Megan Fox’s appeal?
Yes. She looks like a porn star and has the same acting talent as one, yet for some reason she makes mainstream movies. This tonal disconnect is what’s so appealing about her.
