The review to end all reviews

June 26th, 2009, 1:49 pm by Sara

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.
