Jurassic World Is A Huge Mega-Hit, And That’s Terrible News For Movies

Jurassic World is now on track to beat the box office records of both Avengers films, and it has a shot at beating Avatar. This is terrible, awful news for anybody who loves movies. Not because Jurassic World is a horrible movie—it’s actually pretty fun. But because this means a lot more pandering sequels. » 6/22/15 2:51pm 6/22/15 2:51pm

"Why Not Teach Astronauts To Drill?" Honest Trailers Blasts Armageddon

I might argue how fun Armageddon was, but I do agree with Honest Trailers that Michael Bay’s action-disasterpiece is astoundingly dumb. But whether you’re a fan or not, you absolutely must see this video to learn Bay’s response when Ben Affleck asked him, “Wouldn’t it be easier to teach astronauts how to drill… » 5/28/15 8:30am 5/28/15 8:30am

Why Michael Bay Can Make Movies About Cartoons That Kids Can’t See

Greetings but no salutations, my friends! We have no time for salutations because we have important things to talk about! Why is Michael Bay allowed to turn TMNT into softcore porn? What the hell is happening to Sansa on Game of Thrones? And, most importantly, why do I hate Batman? (Answer: I’m secretly Egghead.) » 5/07/15 12:00pm 5/07/15 12:00pm

First Exclusive Look At The Plague Paranoia In The Last Ship Season 2!


The Last Ship was one of the best surprises last summer — the plague apocalypse tale was basically a fun-as-hell summer movie with heroic scientists, whom we actually see doing science. Plus some neat post-apocalyptic political battles. So here’s a first look at season two, in which there’s a whole new storyline about… » 5/01/15 11:20am 5/01/15 11:20am

I Still Like Michael Bay's First Transformers, And I Am NOT Ashamed

When Transformers came out in 2007, it was a cute movie about big robots that turn into cars, with a somewhat lovable hero and a cute boy-and-his-first-car storyline. Purist fans of the 1980s cartoons weren't thrilled, but the rest of us enjoyed it. But now that it's had three awful sequels, people want me to disavow… » 4/09/15 2:28pm 4/09/15 2:28pm

The Last Ship's Season Two Trailer Is Here, And It Looks Insane

It's clear the action will escalate ("A NEW ENEMY WILL SURFACE," ominous shot of the White House, etc.) on season two of The Last Ship, TNT's adaptation of William Brinkley's post-apocalyptic novel about a Navy vessel that manages to dodge a global plague ... but runs into all kinds o' hellish problems in its… » 4/05/15 1:00pm 4/05/15 1:00pm

How Product Placement Took Over Science Fiction, From E.T. To Star Trek

These days, product placement is an accepted part of science fiction. We're used to seeing big brands splashed all over every TV show and movie about aliens or the future. But it wasn't always this way. Here's the quick-and-very-dirty history of how on-screen advertising became a science fiction mainstay. » 1/19/15 8:25am 1/19/15 8:25am

Paramount Thinks Transformers 4 May Be The Best Picture Of The Year

Because they've just taken out an ad asking the Academy to consider the movie about giant robots blowin' shit up for Best Picture, as well as pretty much every other available Oscar. Transformers 4 was the least egregiously awful movie in the franchise, but does that achievement make it Oscar-worthy? I say thee nay. » 12/09/14 6:40am 12/09/14 6:40am

Is This Concept Art From The Teenage Mutant Ninja Alien-Turtle Movie?!

Artist Tsvetomir Georgiev just released a bevy of unused villain concept art for the Michael Bay-produced TMNT movie, seemingly back from the first draft when the Turtles were going to be aliens. Which means this may be the first look at "Schrader," the soldier-Shredder William Fichter was supposed to play. » 10/14/14 6:48am 10/14/14 6:48am

Michael Bay Is Bringing This Breathtaking SciFi Book To Life

Cosmic Motors is one of those coffee table books that seems kinda cool, you pick up on a whim, then unwittingly read cover-to-cover before it burrows into your brain meat forever. It's cars and planes and racing all rolled into a thin sci-fi storyline, and now Michael Bay is making a movie out of it. » 9/03/14 3:03am 9/03/14 3:03am

The New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie Fails In Every Possible Way

It's not enough to say that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is kind of a lousy movie. You want to be able to draw some kind of lesson from its crapness, or at least pick through the debris for some hint of what it could have been. To that end, here are all the ways that TMNT 2014 fails. » 8/08/14 9:00am 8/08/14 9:00am
