TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN Review (Article) - 6/24/2009 2:32:44 PM

Just came back from seeing it. I also have been a fan since 1984, and I actually enjoyed the first (Bay) flick quite a bit. But part 2? It's just plain horrible on an epic level.

Everything that worked in the first flick was exploited to the point that it didn't work at all. Everything that didn't work in the first flick was also exploited to the point that I wanted to walk out. I expected the sequel, especially one written by the guys who wrote the recent Star Trek, to be at least as good as the first. But just when I thought it couldn't possibly get any dumber, it did; over and over again.

This is by far the worst Bay film ever. Even worse than Bad Boys 2.

Seriously, don't waste $10 on this. Instead waste $4 once it hits DVD/BD and then rejoice that you didn't waste more money on it over the summer.

That alone most certainly will not keep you watching this movie. I love Annie Hathaway, but this flick is slow, boring, and just stupid. I had to take it out half way through and send it back to Netflix.

Looks like Salvation did more than $13M yesterday. Not bad for a non-holiday Thursday.

To my first point above - once they were sent back in time, there was no going back to the future. It was always a one-way trip. So again, there is absolutely no possible way Skynet could've known about Kyle Reese.

Perhaps I'll enjoy this flick more once it hits Blu-ray. I'm willing to give it another chance.

Excellent point, Hobbs. That's the main thing that really bothered me about this movie - How did Skynet even KNOW about Kyle Reese? Since the terminators in 1, 2, and 3 didn't survive the films, they couldn't have gone back to the future to alert Skynet about Reese. It just made no sense at all that all terminators could identify Kyle Reese. Why and how???

Also, even if they did know who he was, what was the point of putting him behind bars? As made clear in T1, terminators will not stop until you're dead. It was just a huge gaping hole in the plot. That's basically what kept me from truly enjoying this movie. If you have to keep saying to yourself, "Wait, that doesn't make sense," throughout the whole flick, it's almost impossible to really get immersed in the story.

The best nods to the first three flicks in Salvation:

-Original Sarah Connor picture from T1

-T1 Arnold fresh off the assembly line

-Guns n Roses' "You Could Be Mine," which of course was the theme song to T2

-Seeing John's face get cut, which leads to the scar we saw future John with in T2

-Kate Brewster, John's love interest from T3, is there and married to John (didn't some people say they were completely ignoring what happened in T3? Guess not.

That being said, I think it still sucked. And I for one loved the TV series too.

Just came back from seeing it and in my opinion, the above review is right on. The nod to the 80's Arnie was without a doubt the best part. But overall, it just didn't have that Terminator feel to it at all. There was no heart, which is basically what fueled the first three flicks.

A few of you may disagree, but I think Terminator 3 kicks the shit out of Salvation. Boring. Just boring.

His last name is McGinty. People have been calling him McG since he was a kid. He has gone on the record with this story many times. He's not trying to be a Hollywood dick - that's just what he has always been called.

Van Damme Returns in WEAPON (Article) - 5/14/2009 9:48:44 AM

Does nobody remember Time Cop? My favorite JCVD flick of all time. I saw it in theaters 3 times!

Also, remember Hard Target and Nowhere to Run (both the year before TC)? He was really on top of his game in '93-'94.

Sony Explains PS2 Price Drop (Article) - 4/3/2009 9:22:13 AM

I think the last backwards compatible PS3 was the 60gb model, which is why I bought for just that reason. I'm sure you can still find it - at least on ebay.
