It’s the end of the year, and you know what that means: It’s time once again to look forward to the movies that no one is looking forward to. Some of you might recall I compiled a list like this…
There have been some pretty great movies this summer. The Marvel offerings were not only lots of fun but well-constructed. (Except, why did Kurt Russell’s brain actually look like a biologically human brain? About 25% of my waking thoughts are…
Welcome to June! We’re now in the thick of the summer movie season, with all the unwanted reboots and sequels a moviegoer could ever want. Once again, we at the Agony Booth are here to judge which releases this month…

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!
