I just saw the movie last weekend for the first time on Cinemax. I agree with a lot of your stuff here, as well as your first post in the thread. To me, they almost made a parody out of it---kinda like Men in Black. You had the two ghetto robots, you had the former Sector 7 guy who is now employed for a meat-shop with no government pension but he keeps a library of secret stuff under the meat cooler floor, etc. Yes, the robot girl with a metal tail coming out of her butt was a bit much and weird--plus they never introduced a transformer that could take the appearance of flesh before. Too much new stuff. Plus it was never really explained how the all-spark cube brought back Megatron 100% but the "new" energy artifact could bring Optimus back to life but barely and unable to walk. And like you said, they introduce a guy who is above Megatron, and it was silly how Megatron illogically screams and beats up Starscream even when Starscream does nothing wrong---it's not like Megatron ever does anything superior. Hell I think Starscream could take him down if he wanted too. The final fight scene barely took a few seconds and I figured it would be more epic.
But I like these kind of movies and it was almost 2.5 hrs of nonstop action so I enjoyed it
It seems that they forgot to add in all the parts of the guy's quote at the end of the article.
"When I was called about the property—I was called because of what I'd done with 'Transformers' and 'G.I. Joe,' Atari reached out to me and said, 'We have Asteroids,' and I had an immediate reaction 'Yes,' [I moaned over the phone as I creamed my pants at the prospect of how much money I could exploit out of horny teenagers who'd pay out the nose to watch my shitty popcorn flick movies in shitty overpriced 3D.]"
I wonder why they cut that part out...
"The Daemon lied with every breath. It could not help itself but to deceive and dismay, to riddle and ruin. The more we conversed, the closer I drew to one singularly ineluctable fact: I would gain no wisdom here."

I'd really enjoy saying this face to face with some of you all; go **** yourselves you motherbot****ers. Starscream has no right to MY position. Cowards never get what they want in reality. They see action and they shit their pants and run. Not to mention he's a freakin' huge failure. he's failed me three thousand times. Two of those times were on Cylon 5. Our most important mission yet. Didn't end so well. Ironhide shot the core blowing it up and Starscream fled the scene when the first sign of the Autobots was obvious.. The asteroids from the planet collided with our mother planet Cybertron and set it off it's normal orbital pattern. You scientists have found it already and named it Nibiru or Planet X. They couldn't see upon its crust due to Cybertron's (Nibiru's) HIGH MAGNETIC FIELDS. In short; you're all ****ed!
