ROTF's twins black stereotypes? (Lol, Jazz)

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090625/ap_en_mo/us_film_transformers_jar_jar_again

Found that earlier. Just wanted to say a couple things...

"Skids and Mudflap, twin robots disguised as compact hatchbacks, constantly brawl and bicker in rap-inspired street slang. They're forced to acknowledge that they can't read. One has a gold tooth."

I just wanted to nitpick... It wasn't that they couldn't read, it was that they couldn't read the Language of the Primes (said so in the novel), which, if you guys didn't notice... no one could read. Wish people would do their research...

ROTF interview

Sorry updates have been so... nonexistent lately >.< RL is screwing me over. Things will be back to normal soon.

Here's a cast and crew interview: http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=56191
Extended kitchen scene from ROTF: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwQuG5pZnH8&eurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Etfw2005%2Ecom%2F&feature=player_embedded

(Sorry about lack of posts, been really busy.)

Also, list of VAs for ROTF:

Optimus Prime - Peter Cullen
Bumblebee - Does not speak in the film
Ratchet - Robert Foxworth
Ironhide - Jess Harnell
Sideswipe - Andre Sogliuzzo
Arcee - Grey DeLisle
Jetfire - Mark Ryan
Mudflap - Reno Wilson
Skids - Tom Kenny
Wheelie - Tom Kenny
Jolt - Does not speak in the film
Megatron - Hugo Weaving
Starscream - Charles Adler
Soundwave - Frank Welker (but lacking the vocodered voice)
The Fallen - Tony Todd
Scalpel "The Doctor" - John DiCrosta
Demolishor also speaks, although the various other Constructicons do not. Devastator reportedly just grunts and roars, so there is no confirmation if Frank Welker is providing his voice. Additionally Kevin Michael Richardson provides the voice of an ancient Transformer seen in one sequence.

Sorry for the missed news, guys >.< I've been having some issues lately and didn't have time to get this out. Yes, I missed some news, but I'll post the most important stuff.

1. First, another round of TV spots-- the first one has an AWESOME shot of Sideswipe (whose figure I bought-- yayyyy): http://community.livejournal.com/tf2007fun/1429047.html

2. The HDRoom has posted some cool ROTF facts:

* 14 robots last time, 46 robots this time (ILM only)
* If you had all the gold ever mined in the history of man, you could build a little more than half of Devastator.
* Optimus Prime will be life size on IMAX screens in many forest fight shots. (That is awesome.)
* Devastator's hand is traveling 390 miles per hour when he punches the pyramid.
* The pyramid destruction simulation was 8 times bigger than the old rigid simulation all-time record holder at ILM.
* All robot parts laid out end to end would stretch from one side of California to the other, about 180 miles.
* Devastator's parts stacked tip to tip would be as tall as 58 empire state buildings.
* If all the texture maps on the show were printed on 1 square yard sheets, they would cover 13 football fields.

3. Preview of the G1 Megs bust: http://www.toychestnews.com/default.asp?t=1&m=1&c=4&s=678&ai=83604

4. Variety has released an article with some of the ROTF voice actors listed, along with other info: http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117940483.html?categoryid=31&cs=1

5. Orci+Kurtzman gave an interview on ROTF: http://www.filmjournal.com/filmjournal/content_display/news-and-features/features/movies/e3iecfa450e38f03b77320a92c99890ed5a?pn=2

6. An interview with ROTF's Tarah Paige: http://therealmtoys.wordpress.com/2009/06/15/interview-with-tarah-paige/#more-784

That's all for now-- a little note on the Sideswipe figure: he is as small as Naaly said (about 6 inches tall) and well put-together. Quite a complicated figure for as small as he is. Next on my list is Megatron, then Knockout and Sideways.
