Boycott Transformers 2

Just came back from seeing Transformers 2.  I have been waiting for this for 2 years.  Have blogged about the dope cars coming even took my daughter to the auto show and got a picture with BumbleBee.  Oh and did I mention I have never missed a Michael Bay film.  Good Ol'Fashion Fun Right?

Well here goes... First after we go through some opening sequence we get a history lesson. Many years ago Decepticons were here on Earth.  Well suddenly there are some spear carrying, bone in the nose, war paint brothers standing on a mountain and in the next scene getting killed by Decepticons.  Ok gonna let that go.

Get a little deeper in my popcorn and here comes two jive talkin, cursing up a storm twin chevys, Mudflap and Skids.  Oh ye Gold Teeth included.  This is so sad and so unnecessary.  And to add insult to injury they can't read.  One scene there getting President Obama to a bunker and the next Mudflap and Skids.  Mike you know that's wrong.  And what is with the response from Huffington Post Interview ..."I purely did it for kids," the director said. "Young kids love these robots, because it makes it more accessible to them." Michael Bay.  That's just a lame excuse. Funny, Dark Knight, Iron Man and Terminator did not seem to need to play to such low levels for success.

So the only language that people can here is money.  DON'T SEE THE FILM.  Yes this is a call for a Boycott.  If you gotta give them your money wait till after opening weekend.  Let's send Mike a message.  

Also... Mike a suggestion. At least add voiceovers for the DVD release.
