Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

I saw it a couple of weeks ago. Wasn't completely sold on it. Being a G1 Transformers comic fan... I do prefer a well written TF story and not just an action flick.

I don't like the characterisation. "Minor" Autobots always seem to come across as ridiculous caricatures. I also don't thing the scriptwriters *get* Optimus at all. They make him increasingly brutal throughout the series. There is no way he'd ever say the line "Give me your face" as in ROTF and he wouldn't perform a cold blooded execution on a beaten foe who has so obviously been broken and appears contrite... he just wouldn't do that.

Wasn't sure of the silly robosnake drill thing that accompanied Shockwave. Why not just make Shockwave himself more hardcore?

Shockwave is a character who is well developed enough to deserve his own plot. I would have liked to see an adaptation of the "Repeat Performance" storyline combined with "Dinobot Hunt". People have been crying out for the Dinobots for ages and those storylines would bring them in with credibility.

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Your mistaking classic 1980's UK comics written by Simon Furman with US mainstream. One is actually 2000 AD for a slightly younger audience, the other is mainstream tosh.

I enjoy both, although the blood-thirsty prime is a bit hard to swallow, especially when he bleats on about freedom, then chops his surrendered enemies / mentors head off.

Film 4 will have no Bay and all Dinobots. That is my hope.
