    111. Ratchet tried to fix Bumblebee's speech problem but ended up getting it himself which is why he could only get out one sentence.
    112. Megatron refuses to say thank you even when brought back to life
    113. That due to more reps on bench press, even Optimus Prime can become bigger than Megatron.
    114. America has been holding out on technology.
    115. Simmons does not want you to tell his mother.
    116. Tyrese, at times, gets nervous and throws gas signals straight downwards.

    I meant backtrack in the sense of: they had to insert the line early in the film, to make up for the fact that they either forgot that they repaired BB's voice, or to retcon the idea that it had been repaired, in order for BB to remain 'cute'. (if this is the case, they just should have never repaired his voice in the first place... back to my previous post: they are professionals, paid to do this job, they should have be thinking about these things over 2 years ago)

    Well to be fair, no one knew that it would be a huge success and a sequel would be ordered immediately. No one knew that everyone would love Bumblebee and the way he is before the movie came out.

    They didn't set out to write a trilogy before TF1 so not everything is smooth as silk but I do agree that their writing needs to be polished up and I think we can blame the writer's strike for this one. However, Paramount should not have pushed to get this done because it did affect the quality.

    That is another thing I learned, I learned that Paramount are ****es like Fox.

    118. You do not require talent to be a successful director regardless of your reputation

    120. For Orci and Kurtsman:
    Star Trek = Another long and hard day at work
    Transformers 2 = Vacation

    I learned that I need to find the manufacturer of those white pants Megan Fox wears while running through the desert. After all that running and getting tossed around in the dirt by explosions, they were still perfectly white! If they make men's jeans, I'll never have to wash them, ever!

    What does that have to do with it being explained in the first 15 minutes of the movie?

    You can film the "explinations scenes" after realizing mistakes, and insert them at the beginning of the movie, so it appears as part of the plan all along.

    CHARLES FOSTER KANE?! OH NO!!!

    Read it again. It was a joke based on the arguments we had in the review forum.
    Both sides were calling names. It's all good....

    I agree, except for the writers strike. If anything, the strike provided writers with lots of time to reflect upon their work, basically, they all got huge extensions. Just because you are on strike, doesn't mean you stop working, it just means you stop providing your work to your employer. Every movie maker should be thinking about the future of the franchise, even when working on the introductory film. When this doesn't happen, you end up with tripe like Superman Returns, where in order to save the franchise, so much would have to be retconned out of the introductory film, that it might finally be safer to just start a whole new franchise. This is clearly not the case with transformers, yet. But just a point I'm using to illustrate the idea.


    Transformers 2 taught me that MBAY still has a long way to go, in learning about visual continuity: case a point, Optimus and Bumblebee save Sam from the warehouse, then suddenly end up in the forest, just a wierd transition,,,, or absence of transition all together. It's actually the exact same foul up as in the first movie, where Bumblebee saves Sam in daylight, drives into a building, and then 2 seconds later, it's night time. These are rinkydinky mistakes that only the most inexperienced highschool filmmakers make. It certainly didn't make me happy after paying 15$ for a movie ticket, and then 20$ for 2 500ml bottles of coke.
