A Movie Reel

Transformers: 6.5 out of 10.

I was worried about Michael Bay's "Transformers", but it was actually better than I anticipated.  I watched it with fellow 1986 Transformers movie fan James, and we both thought it was pretty good.

Good: Bay was smart enough to hire Peter Cullen to voice Optimus Prime.  I didn't want to hear any other voice in that role.  It's perfect.

Bad: Bumblebee is a a Volkswagen Beetle, not a Chevrolet Camaro.  This switcheroo pissed me off throughout.

Good: Bumblebee communicating via his radio was fun. The tunes, the soundbites, it was a nice move.

Bad: Where was the theme song?  They could have closed with it instead of Linkin Park.  Sure, it's a little cheesy, but a modern spin on it would have been cool.

Good: Two words: Megan Fox.
