Well, this should go over well.

I love how absolutely everybody is passing the buck: screenwriters to Bay, Bay blaming the voice actor. Yeah, right. The screenwriters are at seven figures a picture by now, and Bay's Michael Bay. The voice actor is a guy making scale who did what he was told to. Not that he's blameless, if this is as ghastly as it sounds, but there's no way he did that on his own.

(It's like when the guys writing SLIDERS kept writing ghastly Step'n'Fetchit stuff for Cleavant Derricks, and then blamed Derricks for acting poorly when they started to catch heat. This was when their critics pointed out that Derricks was a Tony-award-winning actor.)

...WHOA. "[The bots] make Jar Jar Binks look like he belongs in a production of 'A Raisin in the Sun'"?? That's gotta leave a mark.

I was thinking of going to see the Transformers movie, mainly because part of it was shot at my alma mater (U of PA) and partly because Glenn Morshower's in it, though he'll probably only have one scene. If I do go I'll let you know how excruciating it is.

Adrian is shocked


Really, Transformers? I was all set to see the new movie, because hey, giant robots! And you can't kill the black robot AGAIN, right? OH AWESOME IT LOOKS LIKE YOU MADE IT WORSE.

Just, wtf.

Well maybe it will provide fodder for some future Wayans Family movie or something :)

It was pretty damn noticeable- as were the homophobic and sexist comments, and the sudden lack of female characters except for the Love Interest and the Mom.

Tom Kenny is Spongebob. And many, many others; IMDB shows 214 credits.

What Coasterchild said. Seriously, WTF. I might not go see it, now.
