Transformers 4: Return or Teh Flamez

Silly me, I thought that Hasbro could wrestle these classic characters away from the nightmarish wads of metal the Bay-man brought us 3 films in […]

Confused and Afraid: Transformers 4 Casting News

I’m not really sure what this sensation is I’m feeling. The latest cast member of Transformers 4 has me experiencing a positive emotion, and it doesn’t feel right. Maybe I’ll just go with it. While I shudder to think how bad TF4 could end up being, you all KNOW I’ll be watching it in theaters. […]
