If you thought sitting through the nearly three hour sequel Transformers: Dark of the Moon was rough, it was downright excruciating for star Shia LaBeouf. It's unclear if the actor had ever seen the movie until earlier this week. But it proved to be one of the most painful experiences for the young actor as he relived every single one of his films. Lets just say it was no Even Stevens movie. And some enterprising fans have captured the agonized facial expressions that LaBeouf dropped while trying to bare the weight of his final Transformers installment.
Shia LaBeouf is finally at home, resting up after a grueling three day movie marathon. In an act of artistic rebellion, the kid decided to watch every single one of his films, and he allowed the public to watch via a streaming video. You can re-watch HERE if you missed it. Things kicked off this past Tuesday. He greeted his full catalogue of work with varying degrees of acceptance. Some he seemed to love, some he seemed to tolerate. And then there was the occasional movie, like Transformers: Dark of the Moon, that had him groaning through his teeth. And at times, he had to cover his face in embarrassment.
Many wondered if Shia LaBeouf would ever get up and go to the bathroom. Or take a nap. He did both while trying to wade through the shit wave that is Transformers 3. The #AllMyMovies project did prove to be a success, with a lot of detractors finally warning up to the actor's weird sensibilities. Everything played out at the Angelika Film Center in New York. Admission was free, and anyone who wanted to join in on the movie marathon was invited to do so. Though Shia LaBeouf was eager to engage with fans who stopped by for a selfie or an autograph, his one rule was that he remain silent through it all. He never spoke to anyone during the three days he was in the theater.
Shia LaBeouf began the movie marathon with his most recent release, Man Down, which he appears in alongside Kate Mara, Gary Oldman, Clifton Collins Jr. and Jai Courtney. The action thriller doesn't have a domestic release date yet. The movie is set in a post-apocalyptic America, where former U.S. Marine Gabriel Drummer searches desperately for the whereabouts of his son, accompanied by his best friend and a survivor. The actor then worked backwards through his entire filmography, and some of the audience in attendance didn't mind being vocal when they didn't like something. One man stood up at the end of Man Down and very loudly declared that it 'sucked'. Though he never once tried to engage the actor.
While Shia LaBeouf couldn't contain his disgust for Transformers: Dark of the Moon, he certainly had a ball watching the Even Stevens movie, which served as a finale for the Disney Channel movie. We have those photos too, captured off his streaming link. During that film, he, and the rest of the audience, appeared to be having the time of their lives. You can check out all the images here, where the actor's face tells the real story. And if you want to relive the whole ordeal in real time, you can revisit HERE.
