Transformers 2

Megan Fox?: CHECK
Transformers?: CHECK
Plot?: CHECK

Ooooh, I'm going to have to go to the judges on that one. Judges?

Yes, By a 4 to 3 vote, we do have a plot.

Crass and juvenile humor which adds nothing to the movie yet cheapens the entire experience?: CHECK

"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is an OK movie. Not great. And this is coming from me... If there was anyone who was willing to take a hit for the Transformer team - it's me. But I would say, save your money and watch it second run or on DVD.

Wait, it has lots of Megan Fox. Who am I kidding, it was worth twice what I paid. AND it has Transformers. So I guess even the stupid fart joke humor can't ruin it all that much.

But I question the need for it. And once you see the movie, you'll know what I am talking about. I don't do spoilers. (Although I still can't believe they killed Sam, I wonder what they'll do for #3...)

But the stupid juvenile humor... Look, the movie already has ho…

I am sure that a hundred people and sites will be posting more and better pictures, or more in depth information.
But here are a few quick snapshots...

Editorial comments added by me... I can only guess either they are scared that I will copy their business model, or that Disney will find out they are using Disney materials. Either way it was fun to take pictures of their "no pictures" signs.
