While Tom Hardy has yet to win any prestigious awards commemorating his skills as an actor, his popularity has been increasing. His break-out role in Inception has put his name in the spotlight, and his performance as Bane in The Dark Knight Rises left little doubt as to his potential. Lawless features another solid performance by the English actor and continues his streak of strong, likeable performances.

I look upon the Transformers franchise in a state of utter disinterest. Sure, they make billions of dollars at the box office, but I never found them to be at all fulfilling. The first one was mostly forgettable, with the last 20 minutes being the only good part in a sea of mediocrity. The second one was god awful, and I honestly have no idea where to begin with how bad it was. Between bad writing, bad acting, racists robots, boring action, humping robots, a nonsensical plot, and robot heaven, there's a lot of bad to go around for that film. After Revenge of the Fallen, I thought I was done with the franchise. But then I saw the first Super Bowl spot for Dark of the Moon, and Bay had me by the balls once again. Even I couldn't deny that the action looked pretty incredible. It was the quality of everything else that I was worried about. But did Transformers: Dark of the Moon fulfill my quixotic dream of a good Transformers movie, or is it just as bad as Revenge of the Fallen? Find out after the jump.
You gotta give Shia LaBeouf some credit. Despite nearly losing a finger, eye, and other assorted body parts in recent accidents, he's still doing his own stunts. He's currently in California shooting Transformers: Dark of the Moon, and we have pictures of the former Mutt Williams in action.
