Today we’re blessed with not one, but two first looks at some upcoming robot shenanigans. First up is the anticipated — saying highly anticipated seems a stretch, no? — Transformers 3: Dark Side of the Moon. I have to admit, this trailer is done well and actually carries some weight to draw you in. That [...]
God, I really wish I could go loose on this one. He’s like Napoleon and he wants to create this insane, infamous mad-man reputation. He wants to be like Hitler on his sets, and he is. So he’s a nightmare to work for but when you get him away from set, and he’s not in [...]
Ahead of what is sure to be an insane box office draw by Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, director Michael Bay took some time out to answer a few questions about the film.

We’ll call the condition “Bay Overdose,” which can be traced back to a number of the film’s afflictions.
