You Have Been Deceived

October 6, 2010

Shia LeBeouf is already beating the drum for Transformers 3: The Dark Side of The Moon, claiming that it will the best film of the series.

Despite expressing the feeling that he “wasn’t impressed” with “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen,” franchise superstar Shia LaBeouf is pretty sure the third film will be the best of the series.

“The script is the best script we’ve had,” LaBeouf said. “The second movie, we were in the middle of a writers’ strike, writing on the go,” he explained. “The first movie, we had the discovery, and this movie really is the fruition of the rhythm we’ve created out of five years working together. I’m super proud of this movie.”

“This is, and I’m not just BS-ing you, it’s the best movie we’ve made of the three by far,” LaBeouf told MTV News recently about “Transformers 3,” adding that director Michael Bay showed him 40 minutes of footage that had him feeling extra confident about the final product.

All this honesty about the quality of Transformers 2: Revenge of The Fallen does little to ease the hurt that that film caused me, and millions of other men, women, and children who viewed it in theaters. There are many wounds from those films that I thought had scabbed over and healed, but the interview where the excerpt was lifted from above has opened my eyes up to the reality for my need of closure with Transformers 2. I am sure you are expecting me to complain about The Twins; who will not be in the third film of the series, but since I did not know that they were supposed to Black until a friend brought it up hours later, I did not allow it 4o get me angry.

My main problem with Transformers 2 is that it paints the Decepticons in a negative light. It seeks to make Megatron and company seem selfish and cowardly, when it is The Auto-bots who are seen rolling  up on sleeping Decepticons and shooting them in the head at close range.  All The Decepticons were doing is trying to live, and murdering sentient beings in cold-blood is not heroic, though Michael Bay tries his hardest to convince the viewer that it is.

The evil nature of Optimus Prime becomes evident in Transformers 2, but the Auto-bot apologists probably will refuse to see him for what he really is. Optimus is dispicable, self-loathing, and is going to be the death of his race. He can and should be likened to Clarence Thomas. I now refer to him as Optimus Tom now. He destroyed the only known Energon generating machine without first figuring out how it works. It is clear from the film that the Auto-Bots do not know how to build another machine.

*Note: Energon is the food source of Cybertronians(Auto-Bots and Decepticons) and is essential to reproducing their kind.

The Decepticons are trying to make sure that their people have a future. I can’t be mad at them for that. The Decepticons’s struggles mirrors those faced by minorities and indigenous people around the world. The Auto-Bots are willfully involved in some Cointelpro-like machinations. Optimus Prime is the Cybertronian equivalent of the lightskint intelligence agent in Panther who flooded the African American community with drugs. Self-preservation is the law of the land. Optimus Tom is going against the principle of survival of the fittest.


The callous disregard that Optimus had for the sacrifice of others was made evident with his behavior after the climactic fight scene. He just tossed aside the parts that made him into an unstoppable force like they were nothing.

Megatron should change his name Huey P. Newton Bot which would go a long way toward getting people to see him in a proper light.

“I think what motivates us is not great hate, but great love for our people.”-Megatron

    I don’t know bout you, but I will always side with the ones that don’t want to wipe out my planet, regardless of how cowardly they are when killing.
