It sounded like they'd just had Goodman record a few choice phrases and looped them into the movie at random. Sort of like how all the little units in StarCraft say stuff whenever you click them, or how fake John Madden announces video game football. Only it was a movie, and they're not allowed to pull that shit in a feature film, are they? Yup! Goodman joined the cast in May, a month before release.
But Transformers 4 was basically a bad cartoon. Planet of the Apes: This One has drawn praise from critics and fans alike. Oscars are going to happen because of this thing.
"Whatever. You guys once voted for Crash."
And it, too, treats actors like interchangeable blocks. For example: Judy Greer is technically in this movie.
She's an amazing voice actor, and at least a decent regular actor, so I was excited to see her in this movie, too. Only she wasn't in this movie, not really -- she doesn't say or do anything. But I guess they mapped her face for one of the ape ladies, and that was enough to slap her name on some marketing. We didn't even get one scene where Gary Oldman choked an ape-lady out, and I hope the Internet never forgives this movie for that.
