Transformers 2: Trucks and Hot Chicks

Hey all,

Last night, at midnight I went to see the movie Transformers with Dan, his guy roommates (well, I guess they are technically my roommates now too), some girls, and my friend Bob. The movie was amazing, I mean who doesn’t like to see trucks turn into machines that beat each other up? I would sure want one on my side! That’s for sure.

As good as the movie was, I have one gripe: The hot girls in the movie were completely and utterly unrealistic. Don’t get me wrong, I have an appreciation for hot girls. I understand that they help to sell movies. But, really? Megan Fox stripping down in front of her boyfriends house? Megan Fox working on a motocycle at her dad’s garage looking like this?

If it was just this shot, I’d be fine but the scenes with her in it were sloooow… like I’m watching a porn-movie slow. Give-me-a-break. Then at the college where the main character attended, ALL the girls were model-hot. ALL. I didn’t see one normal-looking chick at all. It kinda put me off especially because there are girls out there (like me) who like the Transformers movies. If they are going to have hot girls acting like that, why not have hot guys? Yes, I realize Shia isn’t bad looking…

…but that was about it. (Actually, he’s kind puny if you ask me).

Do I recommend Transformers 2? Absolutely! Just brace yourselves, ladies, for the dude who sits next to you and every time Megan unbuttons her blouse or shows her ass ever so slowly he breathes in hard like a kid at a candy shop (yes, this happened to me).

Stay tuned for more Wearing Design Week tomorrow!

xoxo,

Julie

I loved the movie! I saw it at midnight as well with David before he left for England. However you say that there weren’t really hot guys there dude I totally thought Josh Duhamel who played Captain Lennox is HOT!

Bob: Thanks dude! :-)

Sarah: I loved it too! I guess my point is that, yes, the guys were hot but how they captured the girls was just ridiculous (like a porn film) haha.

That is totally one of my pet peeves too. Yes, sex sells, but seriously? As a woman, I don’t want to see it! And shouldn’t movies like that want to draw in a female audience, too? Men will go see the movie even without Megan Fox flaunting it… women might not go if she is.

shut up. she’s rediculously good looking dont hate. people should go see the movie not because megan fox is hot but because the movie is great without her and she makes it that much better

Thanks for the heads up! I’m glad of the warning! Mr B and I will see the movie soon I’m sure… He LOVES transformers and will surely love Ms.Fox a lot too!

I agree with you- Shia is totally puny. Not hot at all. And Megan Fox does seem totally porn star in the movie.

I almost saw Transformers the night before last, but couldn’t make it. I’m still deciding whether or not to see it, so thanks! I laughed out loud at the guy breathing hard next to you. That must have been a bit distracting!

So I shouldn’t go with the boyfriend? Ha. I’ve heard both great and horrible things about this movie, but I cannot wait to go see it myself!

Last night, over dinner, I relayed to Megan your comment about her role in Transformers, and she doesn’t think you’re being fair. She says that almost a third of her fans are women. She says it doesn’t mean they’re bi; just that many women enjoy looking at hot women. Go figure! But even she was surprised (and embarrassed) at some of the camera angles that were shown in the film.

Seriously though, I think your point is well taken. Television shows are the same way – - filled with unrealistically great-looking men and women (Two and a Half Men; NCIS, The Mentalist). Heck, take a look the female “newscasters” – - does anyone really believe they got their job based upon their keen investigative reporting skills!

Love your new header design! Eloquent and fun. Keep up the good work!

Shia is a busted 12 year old little boy, as far as I’m concerned… NOT the hot leading man in a major action flick. Transformers FAIL.

I found her ever plump, fully glossed lips to be especially distracting. COME ON, dude those are ALIEN robots trying to kill you…when did you apply that lipgloss??????

The girl sitting next to me made this comment, “That is always how I work on my motorcyles…” exactly.

I haven’t seen it yet, but I think I am going to have to agree with you on this one! There needs to be some normal, girl-next-door kind of gals! xoxo

I haven’t seen it yet, but looking forward to it!

I am all about the equal opportunity hotness movies, such as Australia with hot Hugh Jackman and hot Nicole Kidman.

What’s really amusing is that women go crazy over Angelina Jolie for the exact same thing Megan Fox does.

A movie clearly made for teenage boys. It’s Giant Matchbox cars beating the crap out of each other so a dweeby kid can be realize his hero fantasies and live happily ever after with his unrealistically mechanically inclined, strip-hot girlfriend that he can’t chase away with a stick.

If it WERE realistic, I imagine he’ll grow up to look just like his father and still be driving around a yellow hot rod like so many other man-boys out there. And she’ll leave him because he’s not as exciting as he was when the world was ending. Or she’ll gain fifty pounds after a couple of kids.

You guys are harsh. Its a god damn movie thats not real, that would be why you see matchbox cars transforming into beasts and fighting with the U.S. military. So stop being jealous of Megan Fox

I cannot agree more with you! The movie was great (love me some Shia) but the girls in that movie were so unrealistic like you said. I’d love to see someone with a real body, real curves, get up there and show that men can appreachiate her just as much as someone like Megan Fox. Thank god our daily lives don’t have hollywood expectations!

I don’t know- I’m a girl, and even though the movie was kinda showy for almost every scene with megan fox in it, I didn’t mind. It would be nice if they tried to appeal to us women a little more, but I don’t think it hurt to make it a little unrealistic.

But hey- that’s just one girl’s opinion
