  It appears not everyone appreciates Shia Labeouf's newfound candor when discussing past films. For those of you unaware, the star recently admitted Transformers 2 was a disappointment while on a promotional tour for his new movie. He blamed the lack of human character relationships, claiming that without this element "it's just a bunch of robots fighting each other." Now apparently these remarks have ruffled feathers with several of the non-human cast members, including co-star Optimus Prime.

  Yesterday, Optimus offered his own explanation for the disappointing sequel, claiming "the real problem was too much Shia Labeouf running around screaming like an idiot." The normally reserved leader of the Autobots could barely contain his anger when speaking on the matter, at one point growling "I didn't become the Protector of Earth to have some greasy little weasel talk down to me." What was once a solid working relationship between the two has obviously turned sour quickly. Prime even went so far as to question Shia's talent, saying "I've seen third-graders in Christmas Pageants who are better. People aren't watching these movies for his acting, I can promise you that."

   This new conflict comes on the heels of Megan Fox's dismissal from Transformers 3 after altercations with Director Michael Bay. Only this time there are numerous cast members involved. Will it ultimately end up delaying production? It's certainly a possibility considering all the animosity. Rumor has it even Bumblebee is no longer on speaking terms with Shia. When asked about the matter, the usually friendly robot replied "Shia can go suck my giant metal **** for all I care."

I can't tell who you hate more Shia Labouf or Nicolas Cage, james. I'm going with the second one for now.

You'll find out. I'll be doing a head to head comparison soon. May the worst actor win.

Just laughed my butt off. Shia must be a pretty big bitch to piss of Bumblebee that bad. ;)

They're not wasting any time with these Transformers movies are they. First two were good so here's hoping for another decent film. Perhaps all these squabbles are because they're spending too much time with each other!

Personally I hated the second one but thought the first was great. Transformers 2 seemed to get away from anything resembling plot or character development. Even the fight scenes seemed less inspired in my opinion.

Can't disagree with you there. I just think I warmed to the franchise and certainly have lowered my expectations for superhero/comic adaptations these days.
