It's fun when young actors bite the hand that feeds them!! She'll learn when she gets offered less money for the third film than the second!!

SAG would have something to say about that hehe. I wonder if they could pay her enough to agree to a third movie. I wouldnt. She has lots of other big opportunities around.

Also kinda funny that two of the actors Bay named had won major oscars (Cage and Affleck) before they signed onto any of his movies. To date Bay hasnt even been nominated for one. He's pretty arrogant isnt he?

Took my son to see it last weekend, he loved it. he got so in to it, he forgot about his candy bar, which my kids never forget anything to do with chocolate. He is a huge Transformers fan. Sure it had some plot holes, but I really didn't notice them until after the movie when I started to think about it. But it was a fun movie to watch, didn't have a problem with it.

The cartoon never had much of a plot either.

At least it's following canon.

I think they'll have been signed up in advance, the third was being planned before this one even came out.

She seems to have been signed up for a couple of potentially big films over the next year or two, but she's not the main star in any of them. Jonah Hex and Jennifer's Body are the only two I'm kinda interested in.

Given my aversion to thinking through the plot holes in Transformers 2 I've ended up thinking about this waaaaaaaaaay more than it deserves, but, I can kinda see where he's coming from.

Nic Cage was a cult actor of repute but not a big box office draw. The Rock was his first big smash hit and did make him an action movie draw.

Ben Affleck probably wasn't a star when cast in Armageddon. Given it was filmed in 1997, before Good Will Hunting came out in late 1997 and before he and Matt won the Oscar for the screenplay.

Shia wasn't well known outside the USA, but he was within it thanks to that Disney show he did and Megan was pretty much a total unknown unless you had seen the sitcom Hope and Faith.

So, yeah, he's being arrogant (and I think he can be egotistical anyways) but I can kinda see where's he's coming from with those statements.

A bit!

And Why did Sam waste time using his All Spark shard to bring a old Transformer to life when He could of just used it in Optimus instead?

And When did the twins got stuck with Sam and Bumble Bee?

I was disappointed with how they used Soundwave. All he did was sit on a satellite.

Ensembles often dont work out. Especially robot ones.
