I am all for movies being entertaining, especially if they never attempt to be anything but entertaining. The problem I have is that movie studios will spend half a billion dollars to create a movie based on a script that a ten year old could pick apart. I do try to just enjoy movies, but sometimes I just cant.
Transformers was just terrible. I was wincing at every scene that something wasn't blowing up. The acting was painful, I mean it literally hurt to watch.
Every time this hot garbage was on the screen I died a little inside.
There we so many basic plot holes that it ruined the movie. The voice overs for the animated characters were silly and childish and mildly racist. Megan Fox was hot in a desperate crack head kind of way.
So how does a piece of shit movie relate to the decline of American culture?
Let me ask you this, when is the last time you saw an original movie? Probably a long fucking time. Hollywood use to be the source of creativity and controversial films, now it is where creativity goes to die or get mutilated into a "summer blockbuster"
The quality of intelligent, well thought out story line is an analog to the idea that Americans can no longer process complex thought. We want to be told what to do, told what to think, told what to buy controlled in every aspect of our lives. We don't want to question content and would rater be satisfied with a bunch of bright lights and loud noises.
That is why I hate movies like Transformers, Spiderman 2-4 or whatever the fuck they are on, Avatar, any other over budgeted, over done movie that has no original thought. It insults your intelligence.
