Roll out!

A quick and not entirely helpful review of that there movie about those robots what transform.

It's really nice, sometimes, to watch a story entirely devoid of shades of grey. I mean, when even the latest Die Hard features a villain who's not entirely villainous and good guys who use questionable tactics, and that's the canonical popcorn franchise, maybe it's time to go back to storytelling basics. Megatron and Optimus and the rest of their cohorts do not leave room for thought... Megs wants to take over the Universe, and Prime wants to save it. Decepticons are more than willing to kill humans to acheive their ends, and Autobots value all life. The good guys are colorful, and the bad guys are POINTY. It's easy, it's fun, and you don't even have to think about it afterward.

Also, it rocks as a movie. Just so you know.

For the last six months there has been a sign in backstock area of my store "Only Decepticons don't label boxes"

These guys have been looking forward to this movie forever, I'm glad it didn't suck
