While visually stunning, the Transformers film sadly also had the crappy elements that I feared it would have from having Michael Bay in the directors chair. (Wooden dialogue, I’m looking at you.) Perhaps nostalgia has raised my standards, I mean at its core this was a cartoon about cars that turned into robots that was essentially a marketing vehicle for mass-produced toys.
I suppose the cynic (who, me?) will say that Transformers has grown up with its audience in that it is now an advertising vehicle for Chevrolet instead of Hasbro.
Edit: For some reason Blogger won’t let me title this post. Is anyone else dealing with this?
Edit the Second: Okay, fixed it.
