- Motto: "Do a barrel roll!"
- Weapon: Railgun
Basically, the way that these awards work is, if the film is just, well, enjoyable (which DOTM was) and doesn't pretend to be anything more, then it's automatically terrible. Also, in the film world, if you say anything good about Michael Bay then you get attacked with LOL EXPLOSIONS TROLOLOLO. But then film critics stopped being about actually giving proper reviews a long time ago, in favour of finding funnier ways of saying "THIS FILM SUCKS LOL".
Unfortunately, not only has the Transformers movie franchise got normal "critic" stupidity up against it, it also has the people going "OMG IT'S NOT G1 THEREFORE IT SUCKS!!!!". I for one thought the new aesthetic was a breath of fresh air, infinitely preferable to the G1 "stack of rectangles" look, with no proper joints and horrific size changing and deformation.
And come on, who honestly watches a giant robot film for the plot? (Unless it's Neon Genesis Evangelion, and let's face it, they weren't trying for anything remotely like that).
What my tombstone will read: "Transformed and rolled out."
