Transformers: Rise of the Fallen is playing on HBO again.
And while this goes on and on for a week, it has become clear to me that the epitome of cool alien robot design would be Ravage. He's a one-eyed jaguar! With rocket launcher and machine gun attachments at the hips! What can possibly beat that???
My alien robot coolness first choice would've been Starscream --after all, he has always been my first love from the very start of the Transformers franchise on the tube. He has the attitude, the sneaky, underhanded persona. This time, matching my profile of myself. Ugh. The cartoon Starscream wasn't exactly eye candy. He looked just like a regular robot that has the obvious potential to transform into a jet fighter. But the Starscream movie translation is just ...well, messed up. Look at it! It's Hellraiser sick!
Anyhooo... rant over. Movie translations will always have hits and misses. Mostly misses, specially in the eyes of original TV series afficionados. But Ravage ...that mother is pure movie translation win!
