So I suddenly really want to see the new Transformers film. I didn’t like the first one, to say the least. However, a couple of things make me want to check out the sequel. Thing one: this review, written by a fellow internet person, makes it sound accidentally highbrow. I love things like that. You know, like Alanis Morissette’s ‘Ironic’, to which you can apply numerous layers of analysis. Accidental genius. Far preferable to New Hollywood‘s penchant for attempting brilliance and achieving dog poo.
We also have Mark Kermode’s concise evaluation, which is the first really good thing he’s done since his Exorcist review. And that was over a decade ago. Something tells me old Mark is a Dapper Dan man.
Anyway. Me throughsilver want to see new film!
