Best Movie Review Ever

Roger Ebert’s take on Transformers 2

It’s possible Roger Ebert didn’t like the new Transformers movie.  Here’s an excerpt.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a horrible experience of unbearable length, briefly punctuated by three or four amusing moments. One of these involves a dog-like robot humping the leg of the heroine. Such are the meager joys. If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination.

The review would have been thorough if only he had included: “Megan Fox’s bra size and IQ are roughly equivalent, and “Shia LaBeouf has the screen appeal of a door knob.”

(Editor’s Note:  No offense to door knobs intended.)

  1. I think a huge problem in the movie business these days is that directors are being given too much say over the final edit. It seems Transformers 2 is too long. Benjamin Button was ridiculously long for an adaptation of a short story. Meet Joe Black was more than twice as long as Death Takes a Holiday. Anything directed by Michael Mann or the late Anthony Minghella is longer than it should be.
