Weapon: Laser Scalpel
I suppose it could be worse (thinking George Clooney's Batman)...
Scalpel...blood bucket...priest...next patient!

Would ye care fer a wee nip of scotch whiskey?

Yes I am a Cubs fan. You may pity me now.

Dude, I think this would be one of the rare cases in which the sequel is better than the original. I mean, the origin flicks are usually kinda boring (yes, YOU, Hulk) but I mean, once they get the start of the war done in the first TF movie, the rest second one would almost have to be an all-out, no holds bared annihilation fest, Terminator 2 style, man. That's gonna open up the possibilities for all sorts of new characters and stuff. Man, it's gonna be great.

I agree. A lot of these franchise flicks know they are going to make sequels so the first movie is used to build the backstory. By that token the first X-Men movie bores me to tears. It's only the climax (of the movie) that I enjoy.

I've seen him in other stuff. He's actually really good.


Agreed. Shia actually isn't bad. He just finally is getting a lead role instead of the sidekick stuff. And as far as his swearing goes, I don't mind it too much, it isn't like he is intentionally trying to be a d*ck or anything he just doesn't realize.

And as far as him being chosen as Sam/Spike, there isn't anybody better that I can think of for them to have chosen, so I don't care about it.


yea who cares? who here hasnt ever cursed before? people are acting all offended, as if their virgin ears must not be pirrced by such language.

sure its an interview, but hes a "kid" and only human on top of it. i think when poeple cry about how actors talk, much like this whole thing.. it goes to show just how human the kid really is.

Shia sounds like a typical 18 year old to me. Hell, he's tame conpared to the kids around my school.
