    Mr.Bay is higher level mind like fractal Ginsberg.Well,I'm sorry for that.I wanted to mention summer Milano fashion week LudocicSaint Sernin,in that some suits are offlimits in friendly manners.If a lady wears 200 year old quality garments,does she say-I am offlimits?Some people are more approachable in their cheaper knockoffs.No matter what I thank all for their good and interesting manners.

    Dictated Freedom is not freedom! Why have there been no women writing the sequel of Mikyla Banes? Body Heat starring Kathleen Turner & William Herd will never have a sequel because only WOMEN have the Wright to speak to what her freedom means to her! Kathleen’s acting of the protagonist is perfect. She kills the idiot who married her and henchmen William Herd is in jail where he belongs! She in possession of her freedom, and only women can interpret what that means! Same with the character of Ms. Banes-where are the women writers (still licking their wounds from EQUAL RIGHTS AMENDMENT CIRCA THE 70’s. Look to Phyllis S. The Fault lies where?

    this isn’t really about this video, which is fantastic, but the title of this video reminded me of something really frustrating to me about verbiage people use when discussing michaelas character. often, they just refer to her as ‘Megan Fox’. sometimes, they say “the megan fox character from transformers”, or something along those lines, which i think is quite different. and referring to her as megan fox as shorthand in a discussion about the character is also quite different. but i don’t think it’s fair to fox herself how mich people view her as just... the sexualized character from transformers. again this isn’t really about this video, because lindsay’s points are much more thoughtful. but there’s this weird victim blaming element of the way people talk about megan’s character. as if it’s her fault she’s being objectified. the concept of her being “framed”, not in the literal cinematic sense, but in the sense of her taking the hit for another person (bay)‘s crime, is all too real. people blame HER for the way she’s filmed and it’s so cruel and unfair :( anyways this is kinda a ramble. love the video!!!!

    10:10 why do u think that is? There are a lot of truths in stereotypes and most ppl aren't educated or sophisticated by experience enough to see hot, feminine women any other way than helpless and unintelligent, but if the avg person spends a significant amount of time with said 'hot and intelligent feminine female' I believe their basic attitudes toward women in general would change and grow. But unfortunately there are many truths to most stereotypes.

    I like to think that Marisa Tomei's character in 'My Cousin Vinny' is the grown-up version of Michaela. Her character, Lisa, is treated to a similar framing strategy as Michaela (telling our eyeballs that she's not to be taken seriously via her crazy outfits), but it's all in service to the final payoff where she wows everyone with her know-how. The 'dissonant' framing has narrative purpose in her case. Whereas Bay's framing seems to support the idea that viewing Megan Fox is a payoff in and of itself.

    13:41 because like all women Mikaela is too dumb to hold the air brush like an air brush and is using it like its a sharpie. And all men have come to terms with that being the case so we let you play pretend. While we surrender all hope for meeting a lady which will be able to understand the things we're saying on a intrinsic and technical levels while we simply focus on the T&A. Ex.

    Men generally don't find 'experienced' women sexy, or at least 'infantilised' women are less intimidating to common masculinity, thus we have an experienced female character portrayed as an object of fantasy rather than knowledge in order to protect this fragile masculine ideal.

    I don’t get the framing making her character any less of a badass and any less memorable. The protagonist needed to be a victim, so they could be constantly saved by robot intervention. mikaela was not a victim. She was the epitome of badassery. She was a female transformer; a hero in circumstance to save and protect weak little Sam for no apparent reason other than how simple he was. They are shiny and cool she was shiny and cool. If she was the protagonist the movie would have a much different tone. They would have had to weaken her character, and I’m glad they didn’t. The movie is intentionally immature to serve its audience. Her character exists mostly so Sam has someone to talk to besides his parents to progress the story, but ends up being his felicity and his trinity. She’s only in danger when he’s in danger, but she chooses to be part of the action, while he feels like he had no choice. She is a hero; Sam is a victim trying to right his accidental wrongs.

    5:12 Dissonance of Framing - it seems that was also happening during a Megan Fox talkshow interview, where she talked about being made to dance under a waterfall in a bikini at 15 years old - but because she says it with a smile, a little laugh and whilst looking gorgeous, the audience start cheering. ... She was sharing something uncomfortable with a nervous laugh, and if you hear her speak a bit more perhaps you would notice she speaks calmly and has a sort of dry humour, getting to the point without needing lots of exaggeration, and people completely missed it. If people would just hear what she is saying and think of the meaning for themselves...

    Yeah, Transformers 1 was the most cohesive Transformers film from a screenplay standpoint....until "Bumblebee."

    I don't think US audiences were ready to see a mainstream action-blockbuster with a powerful, interesting female character. Every time you get pushback, every time you get excuses, every time you get people saying how unrealistic that is. Mikaela Banes is depicted as an object because James Cameron wrote her as one. James Cameron wrote her as an object because society wants her as one. #truth

    I still remember the first time I say this movie at age seven and how awestruck I was (as you are at seven by your favorite cartoon reruns being shiny and new) but still despite all that awe holding to Mikaela because I didn’t see the sexist framing as a child. I’ve always said that she was a stronger lead as a side character than Sam was as the main character and none of the boys I was friends with (noted they were the only friends I had BECAUSE I liked Transformers) never agreed with me. It wasn’t until I rewatched it (suddenly in a new light despite watching it hundreds of times since the first time I saw it) and decided that “no I was right, she’s badass and I want to be like her. I’m going to write her with a stronger presence and have her be more focused on the Autobots than Sam because that makes sense.” So ever since if I write anything Bayverse Mikaela is either the lead or a strong supporting character who works as NEST’s head mechanic and is loyal to the Autobots not Sam’s cheating self absorbed ego ☺️

    Bobby Horn2 ヶ月 前

    Oh your focus is that on paper she is not written as just eye candy but if you were to ever read a screen play you would notice that it points out that Shia LaBeouf was not just to sit there staring at her oiled up body but also is suppose to bite his hand as if he was on the verge of orgasm. The comment of when was the last time you had to sacrifice anything was to drive home how opposite they are and how she is willing to do what it takes to do the right thing. This question also asked when push comes to shove will you do the same. Megan fox knows she is smoking hot. So she took a job knowing she would be spending the entire movie as eye candy. In the interview she was asked if she was ok with that and then became bitchy about it. She knew what this role would mean for her and some role are just that if you got paid the amount she did in the transformer movies would you really be complaining or would you be working to keep your same image. It’s like the rock being cast in doom as the biggest badass just because he has big muscle the dude at that time couldn’t act for shit. But he played his role and moved one slowly making a name for himself in anyway he can. Playing now in father daughter comedy with him in a tooth fairy costume. To him playing in the fast and furious breaking his casts and jumping out of helecopters with a turret on hip. Always using what he’s got. He once played a step father role in journey to the center of the earth 2 and had someone throw berrys at his chest to bounce off. So why is that not looked down on is it because he is a guy. A guy who worked hard for those pecks. Does it not take similar effort to have such a flat firm stomach and tight ass that Megan fox has or will you claim that she just woke up that way and even then why is that bad. Allow these people who if they can act allow them to use everything advantage they have. As well stop thinking of a movie like a book. A director wants to use all your senses and if they tease you with a beautiful women then realize there is most of the time a purpose Michelle bay is an exception seeing he is a horny Bastered

" According to Megan Fox bio she was " born May 16, 1986 !" Micheal Bay released movie Bad Boys 2 " July 18, 2003 " In " July 18, 2003 " That would have made Megan Fox " 17 years old " not 15 years old! Further Megan Fox in other recent interviews claimed nothing inappropriate happen between her and Micheal Bay Someone needs to get their story straight!

    Remember ’Jennifers body’? Its a really good movie. It was supose to be a kind of ’Mean girls’ but with demons. A take on female friendship and how toxic it could get. But the marketing basicle framed it to be a porno. Markening it for men/boys instead for women/girls that it was intended for witch made it sink at the boxoffice. If you think about it, the same could just as easely be done too Mean girls. ’Jennifers body’ was done by women with women for women and got destroyd by men.

    I used to hate her. I think part of it was internalized biphobia because she is stunning and as a result I immediately thought "bimbo". I realize now that I was part of the problem, honestly. She seems like a kind person who's strong despite being lambasted. It was kind of a thing to hate Megan Fox for quite a while. And it was uncalled for, because she did absolutely nothing wrong.

    We should cancel Michael Bay. As a child I used to watch the movies and feel uncomfortable but could not explain why, when I grew up I just felt that she was too under dressed and even though we did not have a dress code I would never dress like her. Sure my classmates wore skirts but were never like her, this sexualized. I feel bad for Meghan and beauty is subjective. In my opinion people should hate a mean, violent person who pretends to be good rather than some pretty face they know almost nothing about. It is not just the gross old man, some men have the aduicity to talk to women and even minors however they like and do not care if they are minors which makes it even more uncomfortable. Michaela really seems like the main chracter rather than this immature boy who is supposed to be relatable but has no other characteristics besides being anxious. Usually real people are complicated, just saying. And yes you are right. I just do not understand, not refering to the movie here, how some men and boys seem to have that idea that women are just boobs and butt ans something to be won, then they move on to another woman, collecting them like pokemons and when she is not "hot" she must always be ugly and dumb and " no one will want her" some guys even comment under average looking girl's profiles that they would do them if they put a bag over their head. When women receive comments like these, men should not wonder why they hate them. There are many and different types of men, comments and disgusting behaviors would make any woman hate men and be wary of them if they would do something to her rather than feel calm around men

    I see so many people finally now realizing what Lindsay is saying in the video. She was ahead of her time with this one

    If people, especially women, boycott movies like this and director's like Bay, that'll send a message, where it hurts, to Hollywood!

    Woah. Excuse me while I rethink every single opinion I had of a character in a famous blockbuster.

    I think what creates this bad impression of mikeala’s character are stigma in our society, I actually remembered her as exactly that, a powerful, self actualising women that has figured men out and is so much more mature than anyone else in this movie. You know why? I watched this movie when I was somewhere between 10 and 12 y/o and that’s what I remembered. I think it’s about how you grow up and view things what let’s you have a different impression than others.. cinema is so much more than just the surface that most people focus on!

    omg just realized first movie: Trent gets slack for calling Michael "my little bunny" third movie: Carly essentially gets introduced as "your new lucky bunny" its like they're setting themselves up to say that neither character is going to be respected

    Girls(Feminist) hate Megan Fox

    Can I just say: never understood why people hated Fox? I've never watched one of her films, but I have seen clips. She is exceptionally beautiful and from what I've seen, she acts well- so why wasn't she welcomed with open arms in a system that wants just that? For the longest time, I didn't even know she was hated, but I knew of the famous bending over the hood scene. Again, never seen transformers, but every time I saw that scene even I understood that she was being objectified by the camera, not because she's an object, but because the main character is attracted to her and in turn objectifying her. It doesn't take a genius.

    She was always oversexualized, and then she got (mostly) blacklisted when she actually spoke up about it, in a nutshell.

    This is the cinematic equivalent of a writer telling you how totally empowered a female character is while describing her breasts in lavish detail. (And then making her fall for a guy who has no redeeming qualities aside from being the protagonist, and treats her like a blow up doll.)

    I think I learned a lot more from Lindsay Ellis’s transformers film theory than I did in actual film school

    Megan was really attacked from all angles in the 2000s- Over-sexualized and dumbed down by men and the main target of "I'm not like other girls feminism" by women So glad she's finally getting appreciated (esp with Jennifer's Body) but I hate that she had to go through all this bullshit to get there!!

    As a misandrist, this was more depressing than it should have been. Never looked at it the way you did. Nice video.
