More Nerd News in Brief

Michael Bay’s Transformers is equal parts slapstick, horny teenagers, ham-handed politics, slow-motion collateral damage, sketchy science, even sketchier dialogue, and old-fashioned Hollywood racism.

Was it a fun summer film? Sure! A good film? Eh… maybe. But was it a Transformers film? Nope. Not in the slightest.

Our beloved “robots in disguise” were, for the most part, merely a convoluted plot device.

In addition, the movie was full of characters that didn’t do anything and set pieces that existed simply for the sake of destruction. It was a summer popcorn move, plain and simple.

And yet I had to see it. Because I am a huge dork.

I'll be glad to switch that link over for you, nYgel. :)

Yeah, Soc, that's Wheelie from Optimus Rhyme making a cameo. I believe the other two are bandmates Stumblebee and Powerthighs, but it's hard to be sure.
