Oh, we’re on to you, Michael Bay. Don’t think we’ve forgotten the legacy of pyramid destruction and robo-leg humping established by Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen quite yet. Most of that movie made absolutely no sense, like those vaguely racist robots Skids and Mudflaps. If their brains are computers, then how can can one of them just not be able to read?
Which is why, as much as we love slow-motion explosions and the actor John Turturro, we know that the Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon trailer is as exciting as the movie could possibly get, probably more so. While we are somewhat intrigued by the idea that evil Decepticons have been living under the surface of the moon since the American moon landing until said time that they would emerge and wreck havoc on the District of Columbia, we know those exciting moments are probably separated by forty minutes of nonsensical dialogue and painful plot exposition. We are so sorry, Shia. We’ve grown too wise for your games.
