Echoes of 9/11 in Transformers the movie

  • I enjoyed Transformers tremendously, the script seemed to be put together from a bunch of semi-rubbishy ideas, there's probably not a lot one could do about this because the film was based on ideas associated with cartoons and toys but it was enjoyable and brilliantly surreal non-the less with what seemed like great effects but I believe that it was a post 9/11 movie. They had one of the main tunes for  
  • The Power Hour radio show in there at the moment when Bumblebee transformed himself into a flashy new car, that show was responsible for "9/11 In Plane Site" and at the end Optimus Prime, the leader of the good Autobots mentioned the words "in plane site" and there was all of this mass destruction in the city streets, and well I keep thinking about the shape shifting reports about the aircraft sightings for 9/11 and what was causing all the damage in 9/11, and indeed all the confusion we have experienced since wondering where the next attack would come from in hand with shapeshifting evidence that Osama Bin-Laden (with Al Qaeda) was supposed to be responsible, so obviously the Decepticons must have been responsible for the 9/11 incident.
  • Another thing that caught my attention in the street battle scenes was a moment when a curious yellow light or glow came from the background as they closed up on certain humans, and I wondered what to make of this. But since my mind was so wired up to deal with post 9/11-isms, I took it to be perhaps something to remind people of the glow of the Corruscant sky in Attack Of The Clones which was an incredible sunset caught caught somewhere around the world on film from the evening before 9/11. And I believe that I remember many woeful sunsets after that event
