WatchingTransformers: Dark of the Moon(with the Rifftrax of course.) On top of the dozens (hundreds?) of things wrong with this movie, the people behind DotM do not understand foreshadowing.
In the scene where McDreamy is showing off all his vintage sports cars, I was super excited, because this is a Transformers movie, soobviouslyat least one of them was going to turn out to be a Transformer by the end. That…never happens. Not a single cool vintage car is a robot : (
Then near the end, there is a close-up on a garbage truck. I know enough about framing of shots to know when a camera pays that much attention to a single item on screen, it’s going to come back later and be important. Later the “hero” characters are in Chicago and there in the background is the same brand of garbage truck. Time for a payoff right? No. No it is not. It was yet another bit of product placement and was not tied to the plot or story structure at all.
In a way, these two things disappointed me more than the rest of the movie’s flaws combined. ::groans::
