VIDEO: Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

We’re sorry...

This video is no longer available due to the shutdown of Blip.tv.

The Cinema Slob checks out what has luckily turned out not to be the final movie in the extraordinary Michael Bay four-part Transformers trilogy. Watch as the Slob learns about the moon landing, ponders the evil-ness of goatees, sees his beloved home town get blown to hell, and reenacts clips too awesome to actually include in the review!

    Say what you want against or even for Mister Bay, one thing this movie got right where other franchise updates fail more and more recently: a shitload of references to the original `84 series!
    Awesome little tidbit to know this was in your backyard, Slob. You may be the nearest Boother to me (Madison region).

      I obviously missed those 80’s references. Didn’t like how Optimus was portrayed at the end. Obviously Bay doesn’t “get” what the Autobots stand for. They have values and standards, unlike the Deceps.

        I’ve seen it just once in the theatre thus far, but just going by memory:
        –Spacebridges. They used them all the time back and forth between planets on the show.
        –The plot with the super-spacebridge. This was about the classic three-parter from Season 1, where they made the biggest spacebridge to bring all of Cybertron to within Earth’s orbit. One thing the cartoon got right that TF3 didn’t was what would believably happen bringing two planets that close to each other–their gravities pushed and pulled on each other with catastrophic results (Earth got it worse than Cybertron). It was like the movie “2012” times 20.
        –Optimus Prime did lose a complete arm in one episode, and eventually got it back at the end after some difficulty.
        –The Autobots were exiled from Earth in a huge rocket with the help of politics. And for a minute I thought that rocket would turn into Omega Supreme (ha!).
        –A few more classic characters were brought in, such as Wheeljack, Shockwave, Sideswipe or Sunstreaker (can’t remember), and Laserbeak, and maybe a few others. And others like Ironhide and Soundwave got it bad. Starscream also had more of a presence in this one.
        –Sam’s (Spike’s) girlfriend was more true to the show than Fox’s character ever was.
        –Sentinel Prime bore some resemblance to Optimus’ mentor in the show–I don’t remember the name, just the face.
        I’m just going by what I remembered from the show, since I haven’t seen them again until maybe just within this last year. Yeah, that’s what really helped me enjoy and/or tolerate Bayformers–the trip down memory lane (80s child here).

    I do agree that if you focus only on the action scenes and filter out 90% of the human plots, it isn’t a bad movie. Like, the entirety of Sam’s parents’ scenes as well as John Malkovich’s can be totally cut out, and nothing from the plot is changed. Hell, most of Sam’s could be taken out and it wouldn’t change much.

      Or just cut out the whole movie. I’ll stick with the Animated movie even if the animation is “outdated”.

    Steve’s re-enactment was awesome, and the use of ‘Transformers Cybertron’ figures further sweetened the deal for me.

    “Am I evil?” Yes, Zach, you most certainly are. 😀

    Good stuff. The reenactment was especially moving, far better than anything that hack Bay could have produced. At least there I could tell which Transformer was Prime during the action scenes.
