Movie Reviews: The Quiet + Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen

The Quiet (2005)

Nina (Elisha Cuthbert of 'House of Wax', '24', 'Happy Endings') is not happy that her parents god-daughter Dot has come to live with them. Dot is deaf/mute and is ignored or used as a sounding board by the various narcissists that surround her. Nina wears a bad wig and fights with her BF Michelle while having a creepy relationship with her father Paul. Her mother Olivia (Edie Falco) spends her time out of it on pills. It's a sick situation all round.

People pout moodily, Dot finds out a dark secret and everything comes apart. This is okay, it shows what can lurk beneath the perma frowns and self absorption of some people.

Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen (2009)

This was one of the worst films ever. Why do transformers have mouths? Why must everything in this film inevitably explode? Sam goes to college, Megan Fox bends over stuff and the 'plot' is annoying and incoherent. Sam yells a lot and I'm not sure what this film is supposed to be about. Everyone looks sweaty, Megatron wakes up, Sam freaks out in tiresome fashion.

Sam's college library is trashed, Sam is molested by Decepticons and everything is so badly edited, I wonder how this got released. Everyone's an idiot, there is unfunny comedy and a huge battle in Egypt for some reason. Stuff blows up some more and this was incoherent idiocy.

Best Lines:
"The Fallen shall rise again."
"That doesn't sound good."

"You should be embarrassed."

"Sometimes you get to the end of the rainbow and the leprechauns went and bobby-trapped it."
