The guy comes off as a straight douche. He spends half the interview criticizing, demeaning, and degrading the fans, then admits that he himself didn't have a goddamn clue how to write a Transformers story. So you suck at your job, and the fans agree! Where's the conflict? He makes it seem as though...

Alliance of the Year has to be yours truly and The Devastator. That's what my wife and girlfriend call it, anyway.

Looks incredible and intimidating and enormous and keeps you enthralled for a solid 4-5 minutes before retiring in a disappointing and anticlimactic fashion.

I love love love the fact that the films became a vehicle for Prime. It could so easily have been the Bumblebee and Sam show all the way; Bumblebee being both cute and tough at the same time, and he could've walked away with it like Wolverine in the X-Men films. Instead Optimus becomes the main rob...

I cried like a maniac, but they refused. They promised my mom they'd mail it to us, but I'm sure one of the security guys gave it to his kid. 26 years later, that day still haunts me.

ROTF is easily the weakest of the three, mostly because it felt like an eight year old on speed wrote in 70 hours straight, Stallone/Rocky style. There are so many subplots and random diversions and wasted characters...augh, I'm getting upset just thinking about it.

Airport security took my Megatron from me when I was 4 because I'd foolishly left him in gun mode. :(

I really do love the exchange between Carly and Megatron though - it's so well written and very poignant. One of my favourite scenes from any Transformers movie. No, it's not. It's marginally well-written...for Mikaela's character, not Carly's. Even though Megatron's more than a bit touched in the ...

When I was in New Orleans, it reeked of vomit, drunks and beggars were everywhere and agressive, and there were mice visible in most of the restaurants we went to. I didn't care for the town at all, and I doubt that the hurricane has improved it. But the beignets were very tasty. I plan on being on...

You read all the books.

And watched all the movies.

And you did this willingly, not because your wife demanded that you do so in exchange for her RE-watching Empire Strikes Back "for the subtle bits"?

You, sir, are a pansy. I mean it.

Anyone been to Indonesia, New Orleans, Spain, or Morocco?

So my smokin' hot travel slut (wife) and I have three trips lined up in the next 8 months: Indonesia (next week), New Orleans (New Year's Eve), and Morocco/Spain (May/June). Anyone been to any of these places, and if so, any advice?

In most cases that's their own fault for choosing such poor third modes, isn't it? The only one who's a threat in every mode is Blitzwing -- his attack on Hot Rod and Daniel in the movie really illustrates what a triplechanger can do (assuming they're less of an idiot that he was, anyway). Yeah, an...

Oh god, the Temple of Doom lovers are coming out of the woodwork.

Honestly, I don't really care how bad future installments of Transformers may get. I just want as many of them as I can get while they've still got momentum and popular relevance.
