The review to end all reviews

Friday, June 26th, 2009

If your weekend plans involve taking in the new Transformers movie, or especially if they don’t, Charlie Jane Anders has written a hilarious piece of cinema criticism about Revenge of the Fallen.

Critical consensus on Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen is overwhelmingly negative. But the critics are wrong. Michael Bay used a squillion dollars and a hundred supercomputers’ worth of CG for a brilliant art movie about the illusory nature of plot.

Oh, and I would warn you that there’ll be spoilers in this review — except that, really, since I still have no idea what actually happened in this movie, I’m not sure how much I can spoil it.
