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!
Lady in the Water (2006)
The Slob begins a special series of reviews called The M. Night Before Christmas, where he looks at the films of the internet's favorite punching bag, M. Night Shyamalan! First up, Lady in the Water, starring Paul Giamatti as a crazy super who finds Bryce Dallas Howard in a pool, and discovers she's a mythical mermaid-thing who's come to protect the savior of humanity, cleverly played by Shyamalan himself!Armageddon (1998)
"I just wanna close my eyes / I just wanna fall asleep / So I'll miss it, baby / I wanna miss everything..."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. 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.The Last Airbender (2010)
The Slob continues his M. Night Before Christmas review spectacular with his look at 2010's The Last Airbender!Kurtzman & Orci to direct (and ruin) Venom, Star Trek 3
“Most of their work seems to be the result of a couple of not-very-bright guys trying their hardest to write really smart movies.”
