The Cinema Slob continues his in-depth look at the genius of Michael Bay's Transformers trilogy with the truly awesome Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen!
As we all know, 2007's Transformers is a classic of modern cinema, and the magnum opus of master auteur Michael Bay, starring one of the greatest actors of our generation, Shia LaBeouf! It's also the debut review of the Cinema Slob--No, not the Cinema Snob. Confused? Then watch the video, where the Snob himself, Brad Jones makes a special appearance to explain it all for you!Lost in Space (1998)
This episode, the Slob looks back at his childhood to take on the 1998 sci-fi classic Lost in Space! Does the film still hold up, or is the Slob just another space cadet? Watch and find out, and enjoy a special cameo from our own Count Jackula!The Island (2005)
I was always a little apprehensive about championing the cause of Clonus as being ripped off by The Island, because basically, I hadn't seen The Island. Anyone could look at the plot outlines and see the obvious resemblance, of course, but I could never really be sure. At least, not until now.
The Island is finally out on DVD, complete with a commentary track from Michael Bay. After watching the movie twice and listening to Bay's commentary, I'm more convinced than ever that The Island is directly based on Parts: The Clonus Horror. In fact, there are several details and plot points in The Island that make absolutely no sense except as an homage to Clonus. Marvel’s Transformers G1 Comic (1984-1991)
“While people today may automatically think of the dumb, annoying Michael Bay films (starring the dumb, annoying Shia LeBeouf) when they think of the Transformers, the comic book series proved that something dramatically intriguing can be mined out of its premise.”Transformers (2007)
Sofie takes on Michael Bay and his big, dumb, loud first entry in the Transformers series, starring Shia LaBeouf as a high school kid who befriends alien robots and, even more unbelievably, dates Megan Fox. While not as horrible as the two sequels, it's still full of enough obnoxious humor (an Autobot pisses on John Turturro's head! On camera!) to make it a chore to sit through.Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)
“It’s like Michael Bay is deliberately trying to hit every Bad Movie Cliché he can think of.”
