“If only they’d spent as much time into justifying the plot as they did for having sex with a minor…”

Get ready for the honest trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction, a movie you know the Screen Junkies crew is going to have a field day ripping apart even going so far as to “pander to Chinese audiences to boost its international appeal.” Bravo boys, bravo.

I will continue to defend this film on some levels, but it’s near impossible to defend it against a lot of the criticisms this honest trailer brings up. However, I do think in almost any other movie, from almost any other director, the idea of a guy getting punched in the face by a car tire is something people would applaud rather than condemn. Just saying.

As for that screen capture above, from my review:

For example, in what is perhaps the most egregious and blatant moment of female objectification I can remember in a Michael Bay film, he sets up a shot from between the legs of Nicola Peltz (who was 18 when the film was shot). All we see is her from behind, from the waist down, wearing very short, cut off jean shorts while Wahlberg makes a comment on his daughter’s attire, drawing added attention to what’s on screen. Only Michael Bay and Zack Snyder can get away with such shots and not reap any negative repercussions. And this is just the most galling example, topping the introductory shot of Rosie Huntington-Whitely from Dark of the Moon.
