New Transformers Trailer Brings the Weird

I have no idea what’s going on in the new trailer for Transformers: The Last Knight. I think…the world has come to an end? It’s like a robot post-apocalypse.

I’m pleased to see that John Goodman’s Transformer is coming back. I’ve always been a little disappointed that most of the supporting robots get killed off quickly or disappear between movies. What’s the point of making these films if you can’t keep the recognizable robots? It can’t just be Bumblebee and Optimus Prime!

Also, am I the only person in the world who wants to see Shia Labeouf and/or Megan Fox to return? I want to see a connected Transformers movieverse.

Double also, I’m a little scared of how they’re going to sexualize this new little girl character. What strange, obscure sex laws are they going to pull out of their pockets this time?

6 Characters I Can Blame For the Common Cold

Ugh. Is there any worse feeling than trying to shake the last days of a cold? Probably, but for me right now, there definitely isn’t. I’ve been battling this bug for days now and I just want my nose to work properly again! Is that too much to ask?!

Help me, monster!

At any rate, as with all things that crop up in a given week, I’ve decided to turn my cold into a List of Six! So I scoured the world of pop culture to find six characters, good and bad, who revel in disease and infection. It’s not going to be pretty. You might want to have a box of tissues handy before joining me after the jump!

There is So Much Wrong With Transformers: Age of Extinction

Not the least of which is not calling the movie Age of the Extinction in order to fit with the rest of the titles in the franchise. Still, there’s so much wrong with this lazy sequel that the Cinema Sins peeps have split their video in two! This is nearly half an hour of riffing, people. Enjoy it on your lunch break maybe!

Am I the only one who wants Megan Fox or Shia Labeouf to come back for the fifth one?

As If We Needed Honest Trailers To Tell Us What Was Wrong with Transformers 4

Turns out I’m making this a Transformers day! I honestly did not see that coming, but Honest Trailers whipped out a video for Transformers: Age of Extinction the same week I wrote up that nifty Transformers List of Six. I could not let that coincidence pass without taking full advantage. They hit all the right points. Such a silly movie and franchise.

The 6 Most Unconventional Transformers

I’m not a car guy. I can drive them just fine, but I don’t know a thing about them. I used to drive a Chrysler Sebring, and now I drive a Chevy Impala, but they might as well be the same car for all I really know. So it shouldn’t be any surprise that my favorite Transformers are a fire truck, a Mountain Dew machine and a wolf/eagle hybrid. There’s just no way to get me to careĀ about Transformers who are cars, even if that’s kind of the entire premise.

Unless that car is the Batmobile, of course.

Why aren’t we funding this?!

Fortunately for geeks like me, not all of the Transformers are hot rods and sports cars. There’s a whole minority of weird but awesome vehicles out there. Of course, you’ve got your Beast Wars, your Constructicons and your transforming planets, but these 6 are some of the best unconventional Transformers in the bunch.
