LOOKED LIKE A RED ROBOT TO ME.

It cut off the rest of the dialogue, which went...
"... I had a cousin once who was fluent in 'bitch-ass tramp stamp,' but it was never my thing."
"Oooh, oooh, I bet it says 'peace' or 'unicorn!'"
"Nah, these are HUMANS, it probably says 'frigerate after openin' or 'not a significant source of energon.'"
God fucking dammit, the one time I want to spell incorrectly and I manage to fuck that up. FUCKITY FUCK FUCK FUCK! I WILL RAPE THE PLANET!

Sure they're black and not hicks? Plus why would you product place nerdy little cars like this? Is there a logic here I'm not seeing?
There's a reason GM is in the shitter?

This whole movie is shit even without this scene. So I'm not sure what your point is.
That whooshing noise you just heard, that was the point sailing several miles above your head. His point is that it's Dumbo Bird racist not that it's not entertaining.
Rape Van Winkle
They don't sound 'ethnic' at all in this clip, at any part of the one second they spend talking.
If you want to talk about Dumbo bird racism, shitty writing, or anticlimactic character death, just slap up a vid of Jazz from the first movie.

I just saw it tonight. Great special effects, great action.
Few spoilers below, but it's not like you should care at all.
However. The plot is fucked, the characters are stupid and terrible and I cared more about the cranky old robot more than anything(or one) else in the film. Furthermore the humor consists of repeating the same juvenile jokes that we've seen in the last 10,000 movies we've all thought were crap. The film is a commercialized, shallow, cliche, mindless, predictable piece of utter trash the likes of which (apparently) theater patrons enjoy. It's like they brewed up 1,000 bottles of "The Worst Elements of American Culture" and fucking broke 500 over the heads of 500 writers and the last 500 over a bunch of talented graphic artists, animators, much less talented producers, and a director who shall not be named for legal reasons.
And yes the infamous "Jigga-Robots" as I've dubbed them. Jar-Jar level of offensiveness. I thought it was pretty fucking racist and I'm just as fucked as most of the people who visit this site. Yeah, pretty fucked I know.
The point is: This is a steaming pile of trash that would only appeal to young/ignorant people, idiots, and wholesome folks who like to see awesome robots fight and kill each other in the most graphic ways possible... for robots.
I'm torn on the rating.
So, the robot killing is good then?
It is a shitty movie and I can tell you this from not and probably never having seen it.
Rape Van Winkle
People who disliked Jar Jar Binks because he was stupid are normal.
People who think he was offensive to blacks are fucking retarded. He was only "racially offensive" to oversensitive white liberals, who were unaware of the fact, or too stupid to consider the importance of the fact, that he was voiced by an African American, who had created the voice concept himself.
But maybe you're right. Maybe pasty George should have climbed down from his tower, and said to black person he'd hired to come up with a voice, that the voice might be considered offensive . . . to people of the same genetic and cultural background as the person who originated it. Right?
. . . .
On the other hand, there's Jazz from the first Transformers movie. That was some world-class white-trash pandering. But most nigs probably weren't smart enough to catch it :-) Personally, I'm only upset that he wasn't a boom box.
-Rape Van Winkle,
Jar Jar was offensive to blacks because he wasn't just a lone, retarded, Americanized Jamaican alien, his entire species were retarded amphibious Jamaican toad-people. I'm not calling for a fucking boycott or a legal witch hunt, I could care less and am not deeply offended or taking any of this seriously. You cannot deny, however, that those two retarded cars were demeaning race based stereo-types (which are very close to some real people sadly). This has been stated: The characterizations were more offensive to my intelligence. Dumb, ghetto, black personified cars just added icing atop a stale cake cooked by a five year old on his 6th birthday.
I can't believe I'm arguing about a modern adaptation of an 80s cartoon, but I couldn't be categorized with "retarded liberals".
Wait, Jar Jar was racist?
Rape Van Winkle
Did you see any niggers in Otoh Gunga?
Didn't think so.

The first movie already had a wacky, "racially yours" black sidekick
they added a grizzly old scot and a nazi war criminal doktor to the list of "stereotype based transformers" for this one.

It's giving Michael Bay and shit staff too much credit to even say this is racism. See, people in the entertainment industry don't think of casual racism as being even remotely offensive. The thought doesn't even enter their heads. To them, all they see is some way of trying to "connect" with the audience using what they think is a guaranteed laugh-riot comedy bit of having shucking and jiving black stereotype characters do their thing and act like morons. Because so many black entertainers do this on their own, these people assume that it's cool to co-opt it for their own purposes and re-tool it however they see fit, but literally lack the brain power capable of understanding why it offends people when boardrooms full of white people think that writing this shit and executing it out is mildly offensive. They don't do this because they're racist, they do it because they're stupid and can only appeal to the lowest common denominator, which ultimately is that the Transformers movies are all about.
It is, however, amazing that a Michael Bay movie can elicit any commentary other than "wow, Michael Bay movies suck!"
