not film, hollywood. and just because money is the motivation doesnt mean it has to be terrible... although, in many ways it helps.

The original is a guilty pleasure, it's stupid but fun. Transformers 2 is literally the worst movie that I have ever seen. This looks like a grey area between the two; stupid, but not stupid enough to have ebonic robots. It will suck but will also make $700 million followed by an immediate green light for Transformers 4.... Sigh. Go f*ck yourself, Hollywood.

Eh movies in general I've never considered any kind of real barometer of society in anyway. Meaning, there's always been fluff and there probably always will be. At the same rate, there's always been quality films and probably always will be as long as society calls for, consumes, and celebrates it. Something like Transformer will earn $, not that it shouldn't have any right to, but it's not likely go get much positive recognition from awards shows and such. I don't blame Hollywood, I blame the consumer. The last Transformers had the 4th highest International gross of all time, so it's definitely not just a California or USA problem necessarily.

Looks slightly less shitty than the previous two... but I bet it will still suck. It's hilarious they keep trying to add a love story with this dorky kid and some random model who can't act.

Fell asleep during the 2nd film and haven't been able to finish it. Such a terrible film. I went opening day to the 1st one and enjoyed it for what it was. Might watch it when it comes out on DVD, but I won't be paying to see it at the cinemas.

It will be an over the top action film with a pithy melodramatic script and wooden acting. However I'm not expecting it to be anything else.

We were lucky to end 2010 and start 2011 with some great films.

The Fighter
The Kings Speech
True Grit
127 Hours

All released this summer, Which is great news because the cinema goes to shit every summer.

Michael Bay should make a whole movie of nothing but people running away from explosions. Seems to be his thing.
