Review – Transformers: The Last Knight

Michael Bay’s (apparently) final Transformers movie was a marvel of special effects and glorious, beautiful explosions. A lot of people really didn’t like it.
Guest columnist Narrator26 weighs in.

Michael Bay’s latest installment into his much-maligned Transformers series rolled out this past weekend to serve yet another overlong feast of bloated robot mayhem. And with Bay finally vacating the director’s chair after this entry, one might be forgiven for thinking that he would try to go out on a high of sorts; predictably though, that’s not the case.

Preview and Review – Optimus Prime #8

Jazz has a chance to tell his story to the press, which is maybe not the best idea but you have to admire his principles. Jetfire gets to talk to the friend who beat him up for being a sellout, which is a slightly better idea but is still pretty dicey. And Optimus finds out that “keeping your friends close” isn’t a good idea when one of them is a murderer.

See below for preview pages and a review of Optimus Prime #8.

Movie Issues: Transformers

Leland, Elizabeth from Comic Issues, and Spooky all sat down and watched Michael Bay’s 2007 Transformers. It’s a rant-filled episode as Leland and Spooky get schooled by Elizabeth about Transformers from back in the day. Spooky gets into all the race issues of the movies, and Leland just takes it all in as a passing fan. This is a episode where we get into the heart of robots peeing on humans, Megan Fox’s “acting,” Shia, and all about Bay himself. Please download and sit in as we wade though all the crap that is Transformers part one.  Read On

Is Optimus Prime going to use his trailer in Transformers 3?

Is Optimus Prime going to use his trailer in Transformers 3?

Thanks to the Chicago Tribune, we are seeing some pictures from the on-location set of Transformers 3.  Out of all the photos in their photo gallery, only a couple, that I have reposted in this post, made me actually want to see this movie.

At first glance, I just thought, “Ok.  We’ve seen this before. Nothing different.  But then I noticed his trailer and immediately got gitty. Now, I know Transformers 2 sucked. Hard.  The fighting scenes were good, but the acting and plot holes and Michael Bay in general overshadowed it. But now, I’m just hoping for a fighting scene or two with Optimus busting out a huge gun after his trailer opens in half in the third installment of the movie series.

For two more photos of Optimus Prime and his trailer, go past the break. For the full gallery, visit the Chicago Tribune’s page.
