So, saw the Transformers movie, and I think I agree with Slate, that the original Transformers movie was better than this version. The sad fact of the matter is that Michael Bay is a terrible filmmaker. And yes, the special effects were great and the Transformers are freakin’ cool, but the script was nonsensical, and there were way too much of humans acting in badly-scripted ways that were supposed to be endearing or amusing or something, and too little of the Transformers being cool.

It’s in beta and I’m not sure if you still need an invite, but if so you can get one here:
