Maybe jet lag isn’t the worst thing about flying, after all!
Star-Studded New Lineup
Mark Wahlberg. Kelsey Grammer. Stanley Tucci. They all hold the prominent roles. Yes, in the acting department, this movie is confirmedly not trash. This cast is also accompanied by…
A New Female Lead
Nicola Peltz is a girl with a little major acting experience under her belt. Because of her dedication to this project, she delivers an emotional experience not to miss, and certainly will be blowing Megan Fox and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley out of the water.
In addition to the actors, the characters now actually make sense in the story. The protagonist is a mechanic who can help repair the Autobots, as opposed to the loosely connected “messenger” that was Sam Witwicky, the previous protagonist. Another character is intimately familiar with the Transformers’ technology. All the characters really feel like they belongin this movie, which is so refreshing.
Connected and Fluid Plot
The ties between humans and Transformers are much more present in this movie. Not to give away any of the plot, but the inter-being cooperation is much more evident: in a trailer, we even see a human holding a Cybertronian gun. (Also, awesome points.)
The things we can’t stop doing!
Ashton Kutcher vs. Justin Timberlake
Ashton Kutcher started his celebrity prank show with a bang by making Justin Timberlake cry on his very first episode! Timberlake was only 22 at the time and Kutcher had him convinced that he owed over $900,000 in back taxes and that all of his possessions including his dogs were going to be seized. He even called his mom for help!
Brad Pitt vs. George Clooney
Bradd Pitt and George Clooney have had an ongoing prank war for years! That gauntlet was thrown down when Clooney put a bumper sticker on Pitt’s car that said “I’m gay and I vote”. Pitt then sent out a memo to the crew of Ocean’s Twelve asking that they refer to Clooney only as “Mr. Ocean.” He also took out an ad in the Hollywood trade papers making fun of Clooney for winning People Magazine’s Sexiest Man Alive for the second time in a row, posting an old picture of George back when he had a mullet.
When it’s just you and your bros, these classic films are a must!
