bad news about Shia movie role

Postby cyberwuss » Wed Nov 28, 2012 11:46 am

I was reading news today on internet and saw an article about Shia who played Sam in the live action TF movies breaking up with a girlfriend of two years... to warn alot of you I am about to go on a rant about this and will have to put some of it in spoiler tags because the reason he is breaking up has to do with a new role he is taking in a lame movie from a eurotrash director.

The main reason I am putting this in spoiler tags is because it has connections to adult film industry and even looking up stuff about the director Shia has gotten involved with will lead to very lame movie companies and movies that have won awards at film industries and famous critics I like to bash (Roger Ebert for one) seem to love, but deserve no respect from anyone at all in my view.

To sum up before you read, some of this will be self justification for posts I put out everytime Roger Ebert or someone like him reviews Michael Bay's Transformers movies giving them huge thumbs down or 1 star out of 5 type reviews. Mostly about why Roger Ebert and other critics movie opinions can't be trusted for any reason.

Ok, Shia broke up with his girlfriend of two years because she doesn't want him making love on camera in a new eurotrash movie by a director who makes movies so evil and sickening that stephen king looks like early disney in comparison.

The main reason they broke it off was because the love making scene was going to be "unsimulated" so basically they are really going at it in this upcoming movie is what I am getting at, the scenes aren't going to be fake and will show everything.

The director who is making this thing has been making these types of movies for about 20 years now at least.

While reading about the basis of the movie, I got to wikipedia reading about the director's other movies, I read the plot summary for one he released called "Antichrist" that was released in 2009. Fair warning, if you can't handle watching "Schindler's List" in one sitting without looking away, you probably don't need to see the wikipedia article about this movie, just the plot summary alone is more graphic than alot of stuff in "Schindler's List" and it has no historical value as it is a fictional eurotrash horror movie, that is just from reading the plot summary with only the movie poster as reference for how graphic it actually is.

According to wikipedia article Roger Ebert, the same famous critic who always bashes the Transformers stuff, and gives them an F (less than 60 out of 100 rating or 60 percent with 100 being best, 0 being worst) gave the eurotrash horror film, "Antichrist" 3.5 stars out of 4. After a quick punch in a calculator, 3.5 stars out of 4 translates to 87.5 percent, so basically a B+. Ebert goes on to basically call the eurotrash director a hero among moviemakers and writes a big big praise of the guy in his review of a movie that has absolutely 0 redeeming value at all, and in fact probably a negative redeeming value.

So Transformers from Michael Bay is an F to Ebert, but eurotrash horror movie with more violence and graphic horror than historical movie about the holocaust is a B+, and the director of the horror movie is a hero according to Ebert lol!

Also, Shia leaves movies like Transformers and Indiana Jones and other mainstream types, to enter what is basically pornography disguised as artistry. Even breaking up with his girlfriend of 2 years because he wants to be in the movie more than keep the girlfriend.

So main reason for discussing this is its front page news on entertainment sites, and might make the legacy of the first 3 Bay TF movies basically be, the main human Sam became a eurotrash artsy pornography star, and that is how most people will remember the movie from now on... so mostly posting this for how it will effect TF in the future.

Also posting so that people will know not to ever trust loser critics like Roger Ebert... for any reason.

LOL, I heard about this. Not about Mr. Lebouf breaking it off with his gal, though. That seems extreme...if it were another profession, maybe?
"Hollywood" doesn't seem like the easiest dream to have. I look at these poor people on the telly getting criticized for living their life basically...kinda sad that people would hate them so much, for being themselves.

Anyway, I don't think his next movie role will/should have negative effects on the "Bayformers" flicks.

It'd be a little silly, no?
I'm passionate about my entertainment as well, but saying I wont see the next movie in a franchise because so-and-so is doing this or that? So? :lol:

It's totally in someone's right to skip a movie for those reasons...but, that's not for me.
Audiences would be in there right to be snobby, just as entertainers are in there right to do as they please...as long as it's within the law.
Because your Sly Stallone, your supposed to forget what you like as a person? We're human, right? To error is human?

Reviews? Meh. I haven't really paid close attention to movie reviews (in any format) since I was a young lad. If something catches my attention, seems like I'd dig it, why not?
It's only a movie. :)

Keep in mind, reviewers probably use the 'toons (G1 overall, pro'lly) as a base of the review. The 'toons had over 10 hrs. to tell their story...the filcks were 2 hrs.? The translation will suffer a bit. :lol:
That's why they're made into franchises, there's more story to tell! ;)

Finally, I'd rather see a fictional "crazy" movie than a horrific tale based on real-life accounts. With the Anti-Christ film, it's like, someone's vision. Since they've made it for the masses to enjoy, it becomes art. With Schindler's List, kinda scared to see that. I'll probably cry...it's different, someone...well people, 'cause hitler didn't act alone. That's fer sure.
People went out of there way to destroy a culture. And that's putting it nicely!

I think it's much more horrific when the tale is based on reality and not fiction. It makes me sad. Hey, don't laugh!

My point about the sad stuff in holocaust movies was that it serves a purpose to remember history and why tyrants must be kept out of power, the horror movie has no such value... and the director Shia is tied up with constantly jokes about being a Nazi in interviews to the point that he is probably not joking... just a bit of it from wikipedia on him:

I haven't seen either. Schindler's List seems like it would drain me, emotionally that is.
I think it's important to remember events like that, also. I've heard the movie can get pretty intense or whatever, I don't know if I want to see a movie on it. That's just me, though.
It's in the books, there's video footage...I'm convinced! :|

I dislike razis, immensely. I've had encoutners, I guess you could say, with 'em...don't care for 'em.

That being said, I think he may have been kidding? I know nothing about him, except he's a controversial director and the comments at the link. Seems like causing a commotion is something he's good at. That's cool. :)
Apart from that, I know he was overseas (American, here). Being American, I believe in freedom of speech. The same thing that protects you from saying whatever you like, protects him, as well. I know somethings are kinda out-of-bounds (or is that supposed to read, off-limits?), he didn't say anything negative about any singular group...well maybe what's happening in Palestine. But, that's political. Everyone feels one way or another about that...

Sounds like he was kidding.

Didn't finish what I wanted to say:
To have such a passion for one's work, making tough decisions like that...I think that's admirable.
Most people don't appreciate the employment they have. Yeah, I know he's a big-time star...
Good for him, sad for his ex-lass.

One has to do what one feels is right for him/her self. He feels working is more important, now. How cool. Excelsior!
You never know, their roads might meet again. :)
