I am happy to hear that Damien knew what Forbidden Planet is. When Mike had the shameless pledge drive I was thinking of paying for a review of the movie. I never had any money and due to the fact that I am going back to school, what money I do have will be tight.

I gotta confess. I went and saw Enders Game. I was happy to find out that the only writing that Kurtzman and Orci did on the movie was sign a lot of checks. Although the movie wasn't a masterpiece, it didn't make me angry the way that Prometheus or the Transformers movies did.

Thanks for this. I hated this movie. A few months ago I went back and re-watched the 1986 Transformers animated movie to remind myself what a good Transformers movie looks like.

I can't believe this movie didn't get a lot more flack for the shockingly racist ghetto-bots. Michael Bay might as well have put on a minstrel show with actors in blackface eating watermelon and fried chicken. Just plain offensive.
