Hoo-ha! Our first guest reviewer! The Great Fatsby has tackled Transformers 2 and has the low-down to prove it. I have not seen the movie but TGF has and it sounds like a laundry list of the implausible and idiotic. Alot of this has been reported elsewhere but Fats might be the first one to use the term ‘Car Car Binks’.

Honestly, this is one of those critic-proof movies. When something makes 60 million dollars on a frickin Wednesday it means that a large part of its audiences knows it sucks and either don’t care or going for that very reason. Me, Im still seeing it with my dad next week. He wants to go, and I actually had a good time at the first mainly because he was there and it was a window back to childhood. I don’t have any allegiance to the transformers or Bay but I do remember watching my dad patiently try to assemble a dino-bot for me on Christmas morning or getting my first Transformer as gift from he and my mother when I was in the hospital. When I watched the first one, in a round-about way it reminded me that people cared for me. According to Fatsby,however, Michael Bay doesn’t care about you. But he does want you see his movie.

Well, it’s finally here. Michael Bay’s Transformers: Louder, Dumber and more Racist has hit the multiplexes and every male between 10 and 24 has penciled it into his agenda right between “get a Slurpee and some Chalupas” and “play X-Box”. The best hope at this point is that it will be ‘good-bad’,  like the glorious Highlander II: The Quickening.

However, the critics haven’t been nice at all, and if the picture they paint is accurate, nor should they. When Roger Ebert identifies the best scene in your movie as involving “a dog-like robot humping the leg of the heroine” and calls the rest of it “a horrible experience of unbearable length” it’s probably safe to say there are problems. And Roger liked the first movie! The best of these reviews is over at i09 and gives me hope that it will be memorable even if it isn’t good. Continue reading
