Fox's Replacement for Transformers 3 Announced

Fox's Replacement for Transformers 3 Announced

We all knew that when Megan Fox was officially out of Transformers, Michael Bay was going to find another female hotter, if not as hot as, her. And who better than a Victoria’s Secret supermodel? Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has been chosen by Michael Bay to be the next female role in the new Transformers movie. The Victoria’s Secret model has been featured in ads for Abercrombie, Bloomingdale’s, DKNY and Ralph Lauren just to name a few. What about her acting experience? Well, she has none. But that hasn’t proved a problem in previous Transformers movies. Personally, I’m sad to see Megan Fox go. I mean, she was fun to look at and she probably won’t be in anything I ever want to see. But hey, out with the old in with the new. What do you think? Let us know with a comment!

We will miss you Megan, or maybe not.

BTW shes not single. She’s currently dating Handsome Rob, aka Bacon, aka Chev Chelios, aka Frank Martin, aka Jason Statham.

Oh No He Didn't

What’s up readers.  I know a lot of you thought Transformers 2 was a giant mess of a film. Well apparently so did Shia LaBeouf. On top of that he thinks that the latest Indiana Jones flick wasn’t quite up to snuff.  I am going to go ahead and agree with him.  Stephen Spielberg has made to many films to think that was going to fly.  In game releases we have eight titles dropping at midnight tonight.  What are you most looking forward to? Red Dead Redemption, Prince of Persia, and Split Second all drop tonight. So what are you all going to be playing? Let us know in he in the comments below.

Bay Out. Abrams In. – Transformers 3 Gets New Director [April Fools]

Bay Out. Abrams In. – Transformers 3 Gets New Director [April Fools]

UPDATE: This is an April Fools Joke. Sorry! =D

Paramount has just announced that Michael Bay has dropped out of directing the new Transformers 3 movie. Citing creative differences, Paramount has a new director already lined up. None other than J.J. Abrams, director of Star Trek.

“We didn’t want to have Mike (Bay) announce his departure from the movie until we had another director ready to step in. We felt that it would be unfair to our fans at this point. We wish Mike the best and lots of success in the future.”

More info past the break.

Transformers 2 Movie Review

Posted by: |

transformers_2_halfpage_poster1a

Just got home from the IMAX version of Transformers 2 with the lowest of expectations of just watching robots fight.  I got what I came for and now here’s my easy to read review broken into 4 pieces and 2 groups.  Robots, Explosions, Plot, and Tits, grouped into Good and Bad.

The Good Stuff

Robots
I loved them.  ILM once again, brought our imaginations of transforming robots to life.   When fans asked for more robots, we got them.  We asked for more fight sequences and oh boy did we get them. The fight sequences were wonderfully choreographed. You can tell that ILM held nothing back when it came to special weapons and robot brawls.

To read more, just go past the break.  There’s a lot you need to read before watching the movie.  Don’t worry. There aren’t any spoilers.

Irony: Writing About How Shitty Transformers 2 is Still Contributes to its Popularity

The popularity of Transformers 2 is bewildering.

It looks like brilliant advertising has made it impossible for consumers to discern (1) a movie with big explosions, flashing lights and a pair of tits from (2) a genuinely shitty movie.

A midnight opening was once reserved for a certain (negative) stereotype, but it has somehow found its way onto the Twitters and Facebook statuses of the mainstream.

The numbers at the box office make one wonder: how many of those ticket-buyers have actually heard of or seen the original Transformers? And while it’s not intended to be a condescending speculation, it’s hard for me to believe that the majority of the (millions of) people who have seen it (and who will see it) were interested in overgrown transforming robots from the 80s.

So, what makes these CGI’d Takara toys so appealing and how were so many people enticed?

I can only conclude that the media has done a wonderful job of spoon-feeding us gold plated piles of shit – the kind with big explosions, flashing lights and a pair of tits.

What will they think of next?

PDP Helps Transformers Disguise as Nintendo DS Products

Posted by: |

“Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” hits movie theaters this Wednesday. To celebrate the release of the movie, Performance Design Products (PDP), an industry leader in designing and manufacturing peripherals for all major video game platforms, partnered with Hasbro to developed a line of Transformer video game accessories for the Nintendo DS.

Autobot and Decepticon supporters can choose a Bumblebee or Megatron stylus and armor for the Nintendo DS. Each stylus can be purchased separately for a suggested retail price of $12.99 or bundled with its respective armor for $19.99. The products are anticipated to hit stores this week.


Earlier this year, PDP and Hasbro agreed to a multi-year, international license agreement that allows for the creation of a new line of video gaming accessories and products.

Tyrese stops by to play Transformers 2

Posted by: |

While stopping by Target’s “Bulleye Lounge” I got to try out a demo multiplayer game of Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen.  After finishing 2 games, a handsome and studly man tells the booth employee that he wants to play and proceeds to take my Xbox 360 controller.  This handsome man looked easily familiar to any Transformers fan.  It was Tyrese Gibson.  It was awesome that he stopped by to play and gave us a few moments to talk to our camera.

Don’t forget, Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, comes out in theaters June 24th. For a trailer of the movie, click here.

Blaster gets an upgrade – Transformers USB Hub

Posted by: |

First it was the old Ravage turning from panther to a USB drive, now we have Blaster transforming from robot to a fake laptop with a real USB hub under it. I like this new trend of geek gadgets. If you want one, head over to this page and fork up the 3,980 yen.

Update: I suck. This is Blaster, not Soundwave. -_-;; Flame me in the comment section below. I deserve it.

Old meets new – Ravage Transformer USB Drive

Posted by: |

Remember the old Ravage transformer? He was the one that could change from a cassette tape into a panther.  Back in the 80’s, cassette tapes were the most widely used technology in the music industry. But now, in the age of MP3s, what can an old transformer change into to stay relevant? A 2gig USB drive of course.
