Review: Bumblebee

Michael Bay lost it somewhere along the way. Sure, he was always grandiose and absurd, but his action held together and his movies were fun. Look back at any of his classics and they are still exactly that. At one point, he was a good actio...

Review: Transformers: The Last Knight

Transformers: The Last Knight is proof that Andy Kaufman is alive. When the first film arrived it was a classic Michael Bay film. Yes, it was dumb, and full of stupid, but it had awesome action, and Optimus Prime, and it worked. Since ...

Transformers: The Last Knight's Super Bowl spot is a disaster

The first Transformers: The Last Knight trailer was a complete mess. Those hoping new footage would somehow make sense of it (me) are going to be gravely disappointed. The Super Bowl spot clears up one thing, Optimus is clearly being manipu...

Review: 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

(Editor's Note: This review was written before the knowledge that there was a 10 Cloverfield Lane trailer before the movie. Press did not get to see that trailer. If I had the film would have gotten a 10/10 off of the waves of euphoria...

What Up would be like if Michael Bay directed it

At first glance I thought they totally missed the mark on this little edit of an Up trailer as it really feels like a Nolan film with all the drama and the WUuuuUUHHhUUHH music. Then the explosions start. Now that's some Michael ...

Michael Bay may not return for Transformers 5

Ahh, the Transformers movie cycle persists unabated. For those of you who don't follow the production of these movies, the cycle goes like this. A bad Transformers movie is released. Critics savage it. The people involved push back against ...

Michael Bay's TMNT Action Figures Revealed

First full trailer for Transformers: Age of Extinction

Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles might look super ugly

I'm not the hugest fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, but I understand the very thought of Michael Bay going through a franchise I enjoy and possibly mucking up the whole thing for everybody. And even if I'll stick by Michael Bay (giv...

These Transformers: Age of Extinction images are handsy

Although Empire revealed our first look at the new and alien-fied Optimus Prime (since he's got a new truck, it does make sense that he has a new robot form), Paramount is still slowly teasing better looks at those dern machines. These behi...

Transformers 4 now Transformers: Age of Extinction
