Jurassic World is now on track to beat the box office records of both Avengers films, and it has a shot at beating Avatar. This is terrible, awful news for anybody who loves movies. Not because Jurassic World is a horrible movie—it’s actually pretty fun. But because this means a lot more pandering sequels.
Shinji doesn’t only get in the robot in Michael Bay’s Evangelion, but completely overreacts to the awakening of the Angels.
I avoided seeing Transformers: Age of Extinction in theaters or on Blu-ray specifically so my first taste of the film would be CinemaSins' "Everything Wrong With" take. I am not disappointed.
We love to argue about pop culture, because geeking out about movies, books and television makes them even more fun. But sometimes these discussions can go to a terrible place. Here are seven mistakes to avoid when having a spirited debate about entertainment.
The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film is in theaters everywhere, already making at least $65 million. Here's a spoiler-friendly place where folks who've seen the movie and those who don't give a damn can talk about whether or not it deserved that many eyes.
It's not enough to say that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is kind of a lousy movie. You want to be able to draw some kind of lesson from its crapness, or at least pick through the debris for some hint of what it could have been. To that end, here are all the ways that TMNT 2014 fails.
With the release of the Michael Bay-produced Ninja Turtles movie (which appears to be getting a critical stomping), now is as good a time as any to take a trip down memory lane to see where this all began.
Watching a Michael Bay Transformers movie is a serious investment. When you add up the running time of the original trilogy, it clocks in just shy of 7.5 hours. That's practically a work day! Thank god they're all chock full of eye-melting robot-on-robot action.
We're big fans of Tony Zhou's cinematic analyses, but we're especially fond of his recent breakdown of Michael Bay's visual approach, which manages to acknowledge the director's knack for spectacle while identifying him as a slave to his own system – a gratuitous, over-evolved action style we love to hate.
I'm the rare kind of person who unabashedly adores Michael Bay's much-maligned treatment of Transformers. Everybody else I know hates these movies, so much so that none of them have even bothered to see the new one.
Did you watch Michael Bay's newest cinematic aberration this weekend and come away confused? Our patented Spoiler FAQ has the answers to every question you have about the Transformers: Age Of Extinction! (Yes, including the one about statutory rape, since Michael Bay decided to bring it up.)
The new Transformers movie expertly duplicates the experience of taking an endless road trip with your father, who refuses to see you as a separate person and who is also quietly falling apart. It's dull, horrifying and miserable. But after nine hours, you realize you're seeing the failure of patriarchy, in miniature.
I love Transformers. I don't mean the toys, the cartoons, the comics, any of that stuff. I mean the new Transformers, the Michael Bay Transformers.
Holy hell, the new Master Splinter is actually kind of terrifying. He looks like a real-life giant rat with a sword, from his pink little ears to his big, black eyes. Take a look.
The comic creator who helped give Leo, Mike, Raph and Don their iconic looks isn't too sure about the human-like mouths and noses that they'll be sporting in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie.
Last week I asked you fine Photoshop people to take back the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from Michael Bay. You've made this old and wizened anthropomorphic rat proud.
Oh no, Photoshop Crusaders! Michael Bay has found his way into our toy boxes again, and he's gotten mutagenic ooze all over our beloved Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Now it's our turn to play with his vision. Tonight we dine on turtle 'shops!
It's been a big secret—with occasional leaks and glimpses—what Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael and Michelangelo would look like in the Michael Bay-produced TMNT reboot. Now you can see it for yourself. They're... bigger.
You could sit through all three Transformers movies in preparation for the upcoming Age of Extinction...or, you can just cut to the chase and watch all the cool transformations.
