Why? It it seems my first response went completely unnoticed. There's no actual discussion taking place here. I know you were upset about the "reading/comprehension" remark I made, so I know you read this part of my response: I can tell, how these things make sense in the framework of the world that Michael bay has set up, but I'm trying to look at things from outside the box. Questioning why these things are the way they are and why more people don't care. That's the thing right there. Your responses were on a superficial level, devising reasons why they're there, when they never had to be in the first place. Sure the military can be shown making an effort, etc... but there's no need for the over the top *********ory military fetishism showcased in these films. It's so blatant and in-your-face that it's impossible to miss. Yet another case of a hack trying to shove glib political agenda's down our throats in a movie about giant robots from space.
