    Yep, I saw the first ep, but need to catch up on the next eps. So far, it's been a pretty wild ride.

    Saw Transformers: Age of Extinction last night.

    I have some mixed feelings about the movie. In some ways its better than the earlier version, and yet it still has some of the Michael Bay cliche story points.

    In the interest of sharing my opinion, I will put Spoilers/Alternative Suggestions below... they are in white font, so if you want to read them highlight them, and if you don't.. then don't.

    There are too many no depth characters in order to keep some of the cliche's alive.

    Mark Wahlberg plays the main protagonist/dad in the film. He's spent so many years being the young action hero, it was rather surprising to see him play someone his own age. (Though still an action hero.) No offense to Mr. Lebouf, but Mark Wahlberg was more interesting, so this is a good thing. Lebouf's Sam character does not even get a mention. Apparently even Bumblebee got tired of him.

    Kelsey Grammer is good at evil. Maybe its all those years playing a shrink.

    Michael Bay clearly grew up very far from corn fields. Let's assume you have a car that can drive as fast through a cornfield as another rally car can drive on a road through a corn field. (HA HA!) This would mean that it was in fact faster on the road than the rally car and driving through the corn field was just stupid.

    When you are evicting someone from a home, even in a foreclosure. The eviction happens prior to the house going up for sale. Having a realtor show up and referring to the house for sale prior to the eviction notice was a waste of movie time. This movie was nearly 3 hours long, this would have been a wise cut of stupidity removal.

    Buggatti (aka Transformer Drift) is an originally french car maker that is now presently being made by Volkswagen. He transforms into a Japanese Samurai and is voiced by a japanese actor. Japan makes hundreds of cars. They even make super cars like the Lexus LFA. This bothered me a bit more than it probably should have. .

    Not as much as the guy at the Chinese defense tower that is speaking Chinese randomly switches to English for a sentence and then back to Chinese again.

    Also if you are going to use the whole cameras everywhere surveillance state method as part of the story advancement, you can eliminate the hippy slacker guy that shows up and gets killed off early on and is used to make a phone call to notify the authorities, who apparently knew because of surveillance. The dept of redundancy dept would fire that guy and so should this movie. You could replace his tragic demise that we cried about for 2 seconds with the robotic dog in that scene if you felt that it was REALLY important.

    Portrayal of the women in this film is especially stupid. There are 3 "main" women, Tessa, the Blonde daughter of our human hero, the Blonde Geologist, and the Asian Investor lady. (That's right, a nearly three hour film and I can only remember the name of one of them)

    Tessa's boyfriend could have been eliminated from this film and nothing of substantial value would be lost. He contributes one skill - driving, that would be perfectly acceptable for Tessa to have instead. Which would make about a billion times more sense then that one time they have her shifting the car he is driving..... seriously the man needs her help shifting and he's a great driver. -.- This change would actually give Tessa more depth than "mostly helpless female that is the main female love interest" and frankly its a Michael Bay film... Eliminating the token love couple would actually be fine, no one expects in depth romance from Michael Bay. They expect action and explosions.

    The Blonde Geologist and the Asian Investor Lady could just be rolled together. Blonde Geologist seems to appear and disappear from the film whenever its convenient. Sometimes with a reason, sometimes just out of the blue show up or disappear from the group. The "Conflicted, Egotistical Man" flirts casually with both of them, so the flirting with attractive women angle would still be covered. And once we make them the same character.. can we also not send "random elevator riding ninja skilled Chinese guy" out to save Asian Investor Lady? Let Asian Investor Lady handle her own business. Not all women need a white knight to charge into battle from the nearest elevator and come to their rescue. This is just poor writing. Just let her kick tail, she was doing a fine job.

    I'm usually way behind on movies so I'm sure this has been discussed before. Just saw Star Trek: Into Darkness. Really liked the movie, it was a lot of fun. The only thing I had a problem with is that I felt like Khan wasn't as focal a character as I would have liked him to be. It wasn't as much he took a back seat as more of the passenger seat.

    Good call compass. I bought both new Star Trek movies and enjoyed them very much as well. The newer Khan really was "superior" in regards to the Ricardo Mantelban (Corinthian leather) Kahn so I liked the newer take on him more.

    Zen.... From iTunes TV

    3 part series about a detective in Rome. Politics, religion etc make for a decent show.

    Well, I just saw 300: Rise of an Empire tonight. I know some people didn't like it much, but I loved it. Loved 300 and loved the sequel. That usually doesn't happen, but I really felt they stayed pretty true to the original and linked them narratively and visually. Thought they did a magnificent job.
