“Dark Dungeons” Chick Tract to become a movie. Kind of.

We here at the Tower are thrilled at the prospect of the classic Chick Tract “Dark Dungeons” being made into a full-blown film, while deeply offended we were not contacted to reprise our performances from the Tower audio play. As the French say: “We’re all going to hell anyway.”   Tweet

The new Transformers 4 trailer is F***ing with me.

The new trailer for TF4 has hit the electric internet and gives us more of an idea as to what the story is. Transformers are in exile, the government is building/salvaging TFs for their own use, and oh BTW Dinobots. The opening scenes show us that Marky Funkabunch is a good ol’ boy, a hard […]

Shia LeBeouf is now an “art.”

Shia has gone bye-bye. Total deep end stuff. Or has concocted some elaborate ruse to get people to take him seriously. Either way, Shia LeBeouf is openly admitting that he owes each and every one of us an apology. He is part of a small art installation on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles, where individuals […]

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. […]

Michael Bay shoots for the edit LIVE!

Michael “Explodey” Bay was given a check to help Samsung pimp their new curved television sets that will become obsolete in two tears, assuming people even buy the damned things, at CES2014 in Las Vegas. A teleprompter malfunction let all the air out of this fragile ego-in-a-suit. If this were a Transformers film, he would […]

Optimus Prime, front & center…or, rather… not.

The cover of the January 2014 issue of Empire magazine has been made public, and we get a good look at the Transformers 4 design of Optimus Prime in bot mode. There’s a lady and two dudes standing in front of him, so it’s chest-up only. Prime looks to be ready to swat the pesky […]

I’d say it’s official. Grimlock is in Transformers 4

They try so hard, the movie studios. They try to keep things secret, but the realities of capitalism dictate that if you’re going to be selling tie-in merchandise for a film, you have to show the retailers what you want to cram on their shelves. This image of the blurry persuasion is supposedly from just […]

Good news, bad news Detroit…

It’s been all bad news for Detroit recently, but here’s the good news: Michael Bay has brought filming for Transformers 4 to a city that needs all the income it can get!  More bad news people of Detroit? The Bayster saw your city as a good place to get his kicks dressing it up like […]
