Completely horse-shit title aside I am very excited for this movie. Say what you will about the first two Transformers films, and enough really has been said, but I loved them. Giant robots kicking the hell out of each other while hot girls run around? I’m in there like swimwear. This teaser sets up the story in a really nice and dramatic way that seems obvious now. To my knowledge, there isn’t another popular story that deals with the twenty one minutes of dark experienced when Buzz Aldren and crew walked on the moon. Why couldn’t there be some crazy big alien robot?
For everyone who despises Mike Bay, and really he isn’t making movies for you anyway, rest easy knowing that this is his last entry in the franchise. Make no mistake dear readers, there will be more Transformers films. Like Spider-Man or anything Disney they are a license to print money. They are easy to enjoy summer popcorn flicks. And there is nothing wrong with that. Perhaps a new director will jump behind the camera and produce a truly great piece of cinema. I rather salivate at the prospect of Neill Blomkamp, District 9, getting the assignment. But until that time, don’t turn the Transformers into art. Simply enjoy.
