...AND IT WAS FUCKING AWESOME.

I went to the midnight showing last night and didnt get home until 3:00 AM. Couldnt sleep a wink. The adrenaline rush was too much. It was almost nonstop action and I loved every minute of it.
Except the fucking frat boys/valley girls babbling the whole time, but thats not the movies fault. I still firmly believe that only fans should be allowed to see comic/cartoon-related movies on opening night. Im sick of god damned drunk/stoned teenagers seeing movies just for the hell of it and acting like complete jackasses during it. I missed quite a few lines because of people laughing before the jokes were finished or clapping when the movie clearly wasnt over.
Its all good though. I just did what I always do when humans annoy me during Transformers(heres lookin at you, Daniel and the entire human cast of the Unicron Trilogy). Imagine one of my favorite robots ripping their heads off while they squeal like the pigs they are. Ah, music~
My mind's still too scrambled so I'm just gonna type as things come to mind.
-The fight scenes were absolutely amazing. Forest and Shanghai? Epic on an unholy scale of proportions.
-The best parts [by far] were the Megs/Screamer moments. So G1 I wanted to fall to my knees and cry tears of joy(the Im hooooome
line had me cracking up). How I love domestic abuse. Even if you hated the rest of the movie, you have to admit, those exchanges were fucking perfect.
-Like I thought, Jetfire and the Twins were highlights of the movie. May "MY FATHER WAS A WHEEL...!" and "It's an ass-whoopin'. It's supposed to hurt!" be quoted until the end of days.
-Poor Jets. It kinda bothers me that OP basically swiped his parts, kicked ass with them, then ditched 'em without a second thought. It's Jazz all over again. Y'know, without the racism. The Twins make up for that though. I vote they make a rap album.
-Seriously, any people pulling the race card again are complete imbeciles. Its comedy. Get over it.
-Wheelie was hilarious as well. More than makes up for the abomination that is G1 Wheelie. Anything that gives me flashbacks of Rattrap gets instant-win status. He just became one of my favorite Movieverse characters. Sucks that he basically disappears in Egypt.
-SOUNDWAVE. 'BOUT FUCKING TIME. Was kinda pissed when I heard Welker wasn't doing the same voice, but it worked. Can't wait to see more of him in the 3rd one.
-Poor, poor Ravage. The Movieverse Autobots are fucking hardcore. Optimus is obsessed with decapitation, Blackout got shot in the crotch(low blow, dude), and Bumblebee rips out Ravage's SPINAL CORD.
-Speaking of which, Optimus was a complete badass. Especially after the Jetfire power-up. BEST. TOY COMMERCIAL. EVER. I heard people crying when he died. I was so tempted to stand up and shout "HE'S GONNA COME BACK! ROBOT JESUS WILL RISE AGAIN!"
-HOSHIT IT'S THE CANDYMAN. The Fallen's voice was perfect. Sooo deliciously evil.
-Needed more Ironhide, Sideswipe and Devastator. And for Thundercracker and Skywarp to show up.
-Problems? Still too much human crap. It was much more balanced but some of them are just so annoying. Sam's mom, Simmons and the military dudes are pretty much the only exceptions.
-Also, Hatchlings. WHY? Transformers lay eggs now? Fan-fucking-tastic. Still not as bad as Budding though.
I plan to see it at least two more times. Just AWESOME. And that's not mocking Micheal Bay. That really is the best word to describe it.
Hell, I'm tempted to make some Transformers parodies now. I'm already brainstorming tons of ideas.
PS: Just wanna say, Danzo being elected Hokage is the best thing to happen in Naruto in a long time. Really, his first order after getting in office is the assassination of Sasuke? HOW DID THIS MAN NOT GET ELECTED SOONER? I hereby dub him DanzObama! YES WE CAN!Smash Bros. Brawl Friend Code: 4897-5662-4406
