Oh the Transformers

Aw man, I just went to the official upcoming Transformers movie website and I’m even more apprehensive about Michael Bay and the movie now.

One of my big complaints about the first movie (besides giving Optimus Prime ‘lips’, oh the horror of it all) was the soundtrack. The music of the first movie was very mediocre at best. It was more akin to choosing currently popular songs and putting them together on a disc. And Mute Math has a lame rendition of the Transformers theme, so bad it shouldn’t have the transformers name on it.

Anyway, things don’t seem to be improving on that front. Linkin Park’s new single “new divide” starts playing as the website loads. How that song (or any other song chosen for the previous soundtrack) will ever fit in the Transformers universe I will never know. Here’s a snippet of the lyrics of this song:

So give me reason / to prove me wrong / to wash this memory clean
Let the floods cross the distance in your eyes
Give me reason / to fill this hole / connect the space between
Let it be enough to reach the truth that lies
Across this new divide

Great, now who in the movie could be such a whiny idiot? The Transformers are all way too awesome and badass so they’re out. And well, as for the humans, who cares about them in the movie anyway? Meh. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to play “The Transformers” by Lion on repeat for a bit.

Something evil’s watching over you
Comin’ from the sky above
And there’s nothing you can do

Prepare to strike
There’ll be no place to run
When you’re caught within the grip
Of the evil Unicron

Now that’s more like it.

Old? Yes.
Cheesy? Yes.
Still totally freaking awesome? Optimus Prime says it is!
