okay, so here’s a disclaimer: i was a comm major, which has pretty much ruined all movies for me for life. i just wanted to get that out there. actually, it’s really only ruined crappy movies for me for life…good ones still soar 🙂
that being said, i guess i’d give this movie two out of five stars. i really wasn’t all that impressed. of course i like shia and josh duhamel, but the movie just wasn’t mind-blowing or anything. it’s pretty funny to me that the reason they keep megan fox around is completely obvious. she’s gorgeous, but not really the best actress. i will say, though, that the special effects and the explosions were amazing. those were probably the best part of the whole movie. i heard others say before i saw the movie that they were shocked by all of the perverted jokes, and i have to say that i was as well. this makes me wonder it we will ever get back to real comedy. so much “comedy” is really just gross-out or sex humor, which (in my opinion) doesn’t really take talent. i really hope that this fad doesn’t last, because i’m quite sick of it…and i don’t really think it’s that funny.
i would like to add, however, that i think that shia lebeouf is a great actor, and even though the movie was a little lame, he was awesome.
currently watching: regis and kelly 🙂
