Bumblebee | Spoiler Review and Lessons Learned #29

Bumblebee was better than every other live-action Transformers movie that came before it, but does that make it a good movie?  We enjoyed some aspects (old school look, characters, action, John Cena) but it left us rather bored and wanting more Cybertron action.

Lessons Learned from Bumblebee

Sky: Do not shoot first and ask questions later.

  • Agent Burns’ (John Cena) really screwed up by being the first to attack Bumblebee. Everything could’ve been different had he tried to communicate first (even though he felt they were being attacked).

Dusty: Have something that you can share with your kids regularly. Song, Movie, Event, etc. This will help them to remember you when pass on. Events are easier to remember.

  • Charlie and her father had their car and her diving as activities they did together.

Sky: Music makes everything better.

  • Not just within a movie, but also in real life.

Dusty: Don’t force a change on someone.

  • The “Gen 1” Transformers are so much better and people will them.  Every movie should’ve had the old school look to the transformers.

Fun interactions between Charlie (Hailee Steinfeld) and Bumblebee

Sky: Do not leave aliens alone to torture another alien.

  • What were they thinking? They should’ve had armed guards with them 24/7, not just Dr. Powell (John Ortiz).

Dusty: Only work with people you like.

  • Never a Decepticon (their name says it all!)

On Rotten Tomatoes the critics score of 92 was way ahead of the audience’s 80%.  I think the critics like the overly emotional story line and audiences wanted more action/Cybertron.

Dusty has chosen Aquaman as the next movie we’ll learn from.

If you missed it, last week we discussed Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse.
