I do not plan on supporting this gawdawful franchise, so I will not have my brain pounded to mush for a second round by Herr Bay. But just for kicks, I went into the archive and grabbed Cinecast Episode #54 where Andrew and myself talked about Transformers in 2007. I condensed things a bit and cropped the discussion out of the full podcast episode to a separate file below.
I challenge anyone who goes to the Transformers sequel to let me know if every criticism and comment on the first film does not apply to the sequel. The consensus out there is that everyone has finally woken up and smelled the coffee and have laid the critical boots to The Revenge of the Fallen.
