Movie Review – Transformers: The Last Knight

I love me some good old action-filled, giant robot bashing, planet crushing movies as much as anyone, but this a real yawner. There was nothing new to see in the fight scenes with the bots. There are a bunch of characters that we are told we should care about, but don’t. The first hour of …

Transformers: Age of Extinction, movie review

Grade: B- There’s not a lot to say about Transformers: Age of Extinction. (TAOE) It’s a Transformers movie with bits of awesome, a dash of humor, and loads of plot holes. But as we’ve seen before, Transformers can effortlessly jump over plot holes. When comparing TAOE with the other Transformer movies I’d have to put …

Review: Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen

  The sequel to the 2007 blockbuster “Transformers” is out and it is rockin! When I see trailers for movies I decide (because of my ever-shrinking budget) whether it is going to be a “wait for the DVD” movie or “go see it in the theatre” movie. Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” was a “Go …

What is the best all-time series franchise?

So many movie franchises, so little time. While it’s easy for producers to add yet another movie to any long-running series, it’s not so easy to have every one of them qualify as good, quality films. And in some series, all are decent, but none are outstanding. How to decide who gets the top spot …

Avengers Bests Avatar at Box Office – But Avatar Is Still #1 in My Heart

Avatar is one of my all time favorite movies.  So I’m a little torn that Avengers: Endgame has broken its box office record.

But when you watch the movie you better wear your best retcon glasses, because there’s a lot that just can’t fit with the story we already know. For instance: in …

Movie Review – Bumblebee

I can’t say this movie met my expectations. Unfortunately, my expectations were pretty high, based on early reviews by critics that this was the fresh new face of a new take on the Transformers. There’s a lot of good stuff in the movie. Most notably: Hailee Steinfeld as the lead character, Charlie Watson. She was …
