The last thing I wanted to do was show you the trailer for Transformers 4: Age of Extinction

You guys know. You saw the Super Bowl, or know someone that saw the Super Bowl. You go to the websites that post all of the ads days beforehand. Sill, it’s my job as the resident Transformers geek to put this up for review, discussion and analysis. We’ve seen the spy photos from toy shows. Grimlock is in the movie, and… matrix help me… Optimus Prime rides him like a horsie.

There is no Shia to be seen, of course, and Marky Funk-a-bunch does his classic “looking at the action offscreen” pose.  I just don’t get it. A Transformers movie could be successful without overwriting everything that makes Transformers… Transformers. Grimlock doesn’t look like Grimlock – the design even drifts from a classic T-rex. There’s a 2-headed flying thing that might be Swoop. Who knows? There USED to be a distinct look that defined the characters and the brand. Not in these films. The new green guy looks like he got his wardrobe from the Matrix movies. The thrust of the promo tells us that this movie is going to be BIGGER and BAD-ASSER – that one dude’s FACE turns into a CANNON!

Still. These things make tons of cash. So BLOOM! CRACK! KA-BLOOEY!  Please to enjoy…
