Movie Review: Transformers: Dark of the Moon
A part of me, the part that enjoys thought-provoking science fiction, wishes there was more to Transformers. They're an alien race. Of giant robots. That are sentient. Who have evolved a culture of deception. Who are virtually immortal. Who have been warring with each other for millions of years. Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert, or Philip K. Dick would have gone to town with the philosophical implications. But then, maybe Transformers can never be anything more than a franchise about toys murdering each other.
With that realization, I sat back, pretended I was 12 years old, and enjoyed Transformers: Dark of the Moon.
