I remember when Susan Anton was going to be like the next Grace Kelly or something.

Yeah, that didn't happen.

Polaroids of Spielberg blowing Osama Bin Laden. Bank it.

Well damn it. I just got Eagle Eye from Netflix. Now I can't watch it. Thanks Fark!

Or he's blowing the guy that has them.

Because Hollywood somehow convinced itself that the coveted 18-35 year old male demographic watched Transformers to see Shia's acting abilities, and not to stare at Megan Fox's hot bod.

he has a quality. in interviews, he comes off as very likeable and he exudes that star quality effortlessly. he reminded me a lot of an older-style movie star. i mean, they couldn't act, but the camera loved them.

i mean tom hanks went from non-acting gigs like bosom buddies and bachelor party to winning oscars. i'm sure people had plenty of things to say when the guy from 'splash' won an oscar.

No, no, no, no, damn, no....

/Polaroids of Shiate LaDouche blowing Spielberg. On YouTube.

Bullshiat. When's the last time you saw a Poloroid?
 
2009-06-02 09:34:35 PM
Or even a Polaroid?

Or a Hemorrhoid?
 
2009-06-02 09:41:14 PM
He seems like a nice guy, but I really don't get what his thing is besides the fact that Spielberg likes to give him bubble baths.
 
2009-06-02 10:13:04 PM
Shia Lebeouf the next Tom Cruise? So he's gonna be a gay alien cock sucker?

Hagbardr: Or a Hemorrhoid?

You don't want to know the answer to that question.

I like him.

The Beef.

It's what's going to be in every movie until I'm 30.
 
2009-06-02 10:51:42 PM
His name means "God has given you beef."

Case closed.

mediablitz: Well damn it. I just got Eagle Eye from Netflix. Now I can't watch it. Thanks Fark!

But you HAVE to.

It's one of the most ridiculous tech-happy movies to come down the pike since Hackers.

While I agree he has an everyshclub quality that will appeal to star-struck drunk driving parole officers and I could be that dude theater-goers. To me he's the next

I'll give him one thing. While he has yet to convince me that he is capable of human interaction, he is capable at looking gape-mouthed at a blue screen like no mo-fo I've ever met.

I'd like to point out that Tom Hanks' most acclaimed work has been in movies where he's by alone and grunting to himself, or as a foreigner that no one can understand.
 
2009-06-02 11:19:25 PM
I don't get the hate for this guy. If anything, he is kind of generic.

IrateShadow: Tom Hanks' most acclaimed work

Luckily, "most acclaimed" does not equal "best". It usually means "appealed most to a bunch of pretentious douchebags".

Tom Hanks' most acclaimed work should be The 'Burbs.

End of story.

He's the next Colin Farrell.

Manufactured and packaged goods brought to you by QVC.
 
2009-06-02 11:41:22 PM
He's the next Christian Slater.

5 years from now no one will remember him.
 
2009-06-02 11:47:30 PM
I don't really know his work, other than, what? Transformers and the last Indy movie? Anyway, his interview in Playboy was good. He's not a bad kid. I wish him luck. He's gonna need it.
 
2009-06-02 11:52:31 PM
Hopefully he'll become the next Heath Ledger.

EviLincoln: I don't get the hate for this guy. If anything, he is kind of generic.

This is my take as well. He's just some actor, what's to get worked up about?

goodnight funny hand!
 
2009-06-03 12:18:16 AM
I was entertained through all the movies I have seen with him in them. He seems to really enjoy his life like pretty much any other Farker would in his position at his age...He is just a douche because he gets to do it and you didn't.

Man subby, you sound bitter.
 
2009-06-03 12:20:29 AM
Even Stevens is the peak of his career.
 
2009-06-03 12:22:27 AM
He was in two of the worst movies I have seen in the past 10 years, transfomers and disturbia, I will never go see a film that he is listed as being the star, hes farking horrid.

Not only bad films he just acts like someone you would rather see dead than live in film, fark why dont they just pluck some random guy from a dinner theater presentation? Its guaranteed he would be a better actor than bouf.
 
2009-06-03 12:26:45 AM
We will see how big of a star he is when he is done with transformers II. Right now this is just a pre-release fluff piece.

I'll tell you what he better not be:

Yorick Brown

that role should be handed on a platter to one Anton Yelchin*

(*plz note i was saying this long before star trek/terminator)

I used to think of a game called "why not me?" Why Tom Hanks with Oscars and Steve Gutenburg with none? Up until Philadelphia, I would submit they had very similar sort of roles.

That said, Shia starred in an Indy movie, starred in a Transformers movie, and was suckled by Phoebe Cates. He has lived all the 80s fantasies we had. Also one time he was bad and he was spanked by Kelly LeBrock.
 
2009-06-03 12:41:10 AM
Shia LeWho?

HAHA JK INTERNETZ I KNO HEZ TEH GAI HOO ROOINED TRANZPHORMARZ!! LET TEH HAET FLO PHREE

Oh sweet Jesus. Just finished it. What a farking JOKE! Now, I still say Jeff Goldblum uploading a virus to the alien ship in Independence Day is the most joke worthy tech fark-up in movie history, but this thing? PUH-LEASE!!! I did LMAO in several parts, based solely on pure ridiculousness.
 
2009-06-03 12:46:53 AM
I don't remember people talking about what douches Toms Cruise and Hanks were at this stage of their careers.

To be labeled a douche right out of the gate doesn't bode well for one's longevity. Tom Cruise has proven you gotta pay your dues, THEN you get to be a douche, not the other way around.

He's not a bad actor, but he needs about ten years on his face to be movie-opening caliber.

Your tentpole actors don't usually look like their mom dropped them off at the set.
 
2009-06-03 12:55:35 AM
It's like Shia Lewhatever is the next Matthew McConaughey.

Tons of "he's the most awesomest evah!!" press and then...what?

lolmadillo: I'll tell you what he better not be:

Came here to say exactly this. I'm really looking forward to seeing Y: The Last Man on screen, but when I read they were considering LaBoeuf for the role I threw up in my mouth a bit.
