New Trailer: Transformers: The Last Knight – Final International Trailer

New Trailer: Transformers: The Last Knight – Official Trailer #3

Movie Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLDECEMBER 27, 2014 Michael Bay’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” are definitely not the ones you knew from your childhood. This time around they are motion captured CGI rather than complete animation or dudes in rubber suits but that is actually a step in the right direction. Their bodies might look steroid-ridden but their iconic humor endures, with their … Read More Movie Review: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Movie Review: Transformers: Age Of Extinction (2014)

TRANSFORMERS: AGE OF EXTINCTION BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJULY 6, 2014 Michael Bay gets me. He understands that I was once an eight-year-old boy who had a huge collection of Hot Wheels cars that were often commanded by Optimus Prime. In my imagination, these non-transforming cars were still Autobots, fighting alongside their leader, attempting to stop the Decepticons from destroying the Lego towns that lay in … Read More Movie Review: Transformers: Age Of Extinction (2014)

Movie Review: Transformers (2007)

TRANSFORMERS BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLJULY 24, 2013 Bringing to life a story of epic stature, “Transformers” is everything I wanted it to be and so much more. Michael Bay understands the anatomy of a science fiction action film and runs with that knowing full force. Despite some heavy-handed attempts at stereotyped humor, Bay handles the comedic portion of the movie with an expert hand, weaving … Read More Movie Review: Transformers (2007)

Quick Review: Pain & Gain (2013)

PAIN & GAIN BY CHRISTOPHER HASKELLAPRIL 26, 2013 Entertaining yet never quite exceptional, Michael Bay’s foray into the comical and violent true story of three Miami bodybuilders turned criminals starts strong but fizzles off into a stylized and indulgent farce of an action film. Mark Wahlberg does his best to keep the momentum going, but with the macho, dimwitted dialogue burdening the entire movie, … Read More Quick Review: Pain & Gain (2013)

Stuck On Repeat: “Monster” by Paramore

Title: “Monster”Artist: ParamoreWritten by: Hayley Williams and Tyler YorkSource: “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” Soundtrack (2011) Most people have a celebrity crush (or tons of them). Mine happens to be Hayley Williams from Paramore. I have enjoyed their music since their days as a Myspace band, and Hayley has held a special place in my eyes. So when they released a song for another … Read More Stuck On Repeat: “Monster” by Paramore

2012 Oscars Challenge: [13] Transformers: Dark Of The Moon & 3 Nominations

[33 OUT OF 46 FILMS REMAINING]-[25 DAYS TO OSCARS] Few things would be please me more than the “Transformers” franchise finally getting the praise it deserves (but perhaps all the money it makes is reward enough). As one of my favorite film series, the original Michael Bay “Transformers” garnered the same three awards at the 2007 Academy Awards.(Visual Effects, Sound Mixing, & Sound Editing), … Read More 2012 Oscars Challenge: [13] Transformers: Dark Of The Moon & 3 Nominations

For Your Consideration 2011: “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”

Imagining “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” nominated for Best Picture is rather comical. Though it is one of my favorite action franchises, the idea of the film getting considered for Best Picture is humorous. Expect the film to get the normal Visual Effects and Sound Mixing/Editing nominations and not much more. FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IN ALL CATEGORIES INCLUDING BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR Produced … Read More For Your Consideration 2011: “Transformers: Dark of the Moon”

Stuck On Repeat: “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” Soundtrack

Title: “Monster”Artist: ParamoreWritten by: Hayley Williams & Tyler YorkSource: “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” Soundtrack (2011) The anthem of this year’s “Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon” is surprisingly not from Linkin Park. Instead, the band Paramore has picked up steam and shows no slowing down, with the single “Monster” off the soundtrack. Though Linkin Park does have a single on the soundtrack, “Iridescent,” … Read More Stuck On Repeat: “Transformers: Dark Of The Moon” Soundtrack
