Transformers Sucks...or Does it?

I saw the first Transformers movie.  The first time was willingly, and quickly regretted, at the theater, and the next 11.5 times were at the gym.

Having seen that, coupled with reviews like this and this overly made-up pile of plastic and whale blubber, I wondered who would pay money to see the second movie. 

Then I stumbled across an awesome review.  Though I don't agree on the mere point that I don't think Michael Bay has an intelligence level to comprehend anything beyond "Tree pretty, fire bad," and therefore did not intentionally create an art movie, I do believe in whole heartedly Barthe's theory of "Death of the Author."  Besides, the review's just plain entertaining. So read it.
