Welcome back for another edition of News Bits. What is it you ask? The film world can get quite overwhelming at times in the news that releases. Unfortunately some of this news is just too small to warrant a full article. Rather than deprive you of the news, we've created this section. This week in news bits we’ve got videos, casting, posters, and tons more!
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.
