    This movie was loaded with moments where I simply just laughed out loud at what I was watching ..... and not because it was funny either.

    I'll start it off with two of them ....

    1. The scene where Sam's girl lectures Megatron. One of the most embarrassing moments I've ever seen in film.

    2. How quickly the Russian astronauts were found and how quickly they gave up their info. The whole scene seemed like just another excuse for Bay's human characters to be really, over the top annoying and obnoxious.

    Almost every moment involving Sam at the beginning of the film. I was astonished by the audacity of the script trying to make me feel sorry for him because he didn't have a job.....with his supermodel girlfriend who is making tons of money.

    Not an "Uh really?" moment, but I got mad at the Spock line, because it made me wish I was watching that movie instead.

    Yeap, as soon as I saw that thread title..."I know what I'm going to say"

    He should've just squashed her or at least flick her across a few blocks like he did to that random dude in the first movie. Yes. this was probably Fox's line which would've probably made more sense but they were too lazy to change it to something more believable.

    As Movie Bob stated...the outcome of the final robot battle in this trilogy was due to a pretty girl making Megatron insecure about his robot manhood.

    The scene where Optimus gets tangled up on the wires, they have their reasons but it's still silly.

    Carly saying to Megatron that he'll be Sentinel Prime's *****. It should've been Starscream instead.

    The ass shot; now don't get me wrong it was nice, but it's "really Bay"?

    Everything involving Ken Jeong.

    Everyone's mentioned Carly talking to Megatron, but how about the fact that he was pretty much just sitting there the whole time?

    The notion that Sam apparently earned a college degree in the year following ROTF. :doh:

    How about WHY didnt Sentinel Prime accept the Matrix of Leadership when Optimus offered it to him. If Sentinel had that, ALL the rest of the Autobots would have listened to him. He would not have needed to go around blowing stuff up and trashing Nest. It doesnt make any sense for him to just wait a little longer and then turn on the Autobots... WTF?

    Deep Wang. Optimus and the cables. Megatron wearing a cloth to...to shield him from the sun? I don't know. The fact that Sam keeps getting these hot girlfriends. Eps saying he's given up the guns and fighting....just to go right back into it and pretty much do nothing. Yeah that.

    And I'm still tryna wrap my head around Soundwave's tentacle Kraken like thing.

    Yea he could have just took the Matrix and then destroyed Optimus on the spot

    (And then make it look like a suicide)

    Why didn't the Government help Sam get a job ? Like he himself said in the movie he could be working with the Autobots since he is familiar with them & a friend to them. The Government payed his College bill & recognized him enough to give him a medal. Why not let him help with the Autobots & Lennox's team ? He should have asked Optimus / Bumblee to recommend Sam join them or something

    Why did Mikaela leave her dog behind? Was it like a parting gift for Wheelie or an excuse to come back to Sam one day?

    Buildings that can remain intact even tho they are almost completely sideways. Once a building makes it past that first few degrees they usually collapse on themselves in a few seconds.

    I think pretty much anything that wasn't action. And even some of the action was stupid. Like the humans ****ing up Shockwave as badly as they did.

    Parachutes come out of Jetfire's butt when he sneezes. Parachutes blind Shockwave so the humans can kill him. Parachutes are the real villains in these movies :o

    i read a quick cliffnotes review of the DOTM novel and apparently sentinal threw megatron off that building that they had the pillars set up around. so when carly goes over to megatron that's why he's just sitting there like he's drunk. sentinel also killed the obnoxious twins when he killed ironhide. so i don't know if they never filmed it, edited it out, or what. but yea it definitely would have made more sense if megan fox said that to him, or starscream.

    Sam's boss. I really don't get what was up with his head. He hated the color red or something? So unnecessary.

    The opening ass shot of Carly. Made me kind of embarrassed to be seeing the movie.
