    I will not be seeing it until tonight PST, but I estimate that I will leave the theater thinking that the critics are just being a bunch of drama queens that are bitter because they couldn't get into show business. Once a far less talented action director like Sam Mendes takes the director's chair, then we will finally have a Trannies movie with a fresh rating.

    Are you kidding? Skyfall was a much better movie than even the first Transformers. Not only does the story suck, not only do the characters suck, not only do the robot designs suck, Bay can't even direct action scenes. The one cool thing about that movie was the jet transformer.

    This is not going to go the way you think....

    I just found a good-quality stream of Transformers (2007) and managed to struggle through the first hour, but I think I'm done. It's really pretty, but oh good god is it boring.

    The entire movie is written for 12-14 year old boys, the best I can tell -- the situations, the jokes, the logic. I'm just really, really bored. Even during the action sequences, I'm bored.

    I guess if that was their demographic, though, then they successfully reached it.

    Despite never watching the show, I did know (somehow) that the Camaro's name was Bumblebee. Do I win a cookie?

    After Trannies 3, which I found to be the most beauxring, I wasn't as excited for Trans4mers. I didn't think it could be topped in terms of action setpieces, but somehow, they managed to do it. Age of Extinction was the best Tranny since the first movie, and the 3D was mesmerizing. As amazing and detailed the Transformers are and how mindblowing it is to watch them transform, you sorta think you're gonna get beauxred of it after a while, but no. Trans4mers takes it to a whole new level. Quite honestly, this is a new level of special fx...yes, probably the best fx I've ever seen. The immense detail in everything was breathtaking. Age of Extinction breathes new life into the series, and on the horizon, I think there will be more than just Transformers.

    Also noteworthy is when the heroes are in Lockdown's ship, some amazing shots there. Never before have I felt the enormity of an alien spaceship.

    And don't you love how Mark Wahlberg doesn't play his struggling inventor role as the nerdy crackpot cliche and instead plays it as a jock mechanic?

    In other news, Shia LaBeouf is in jail.
