Roger Ebert is a robotist.  He apparently also hates fun.  Guess what, Rog…no one wants Transformers 2 to win an Oscar.  They want to have an awesome time at the theater.  Mission accomplished.  I loved it!

I wasn’t a Transformers kid…and while I probably like the first one more, since it was the first and so amazing that Michael Bay could make robots transform on screen, the second one is just as entertaining.  And Shia is actually better looking, if possible.

Dear Mr. Ebert,

For F’s sake, Roger….can’t you just have fun watching a summer blockbuster. Stop being so pretentious and eat your popcorn. You wonder why no one notices the pyramids being destroyed…HOW ABOUT THE FACT THAT THERE ARE ALIEN ROBOTS AT ALL!?!  

I’m surprised you like the robot dog humping Megan Fox’s leg…that seems very “frat boy” of you, and living in a college town, I saw the movie with a bunch of frat boys who all seemed to love the whole thing.

One last thing…they’re DeceptiCONS…not Deceptibots. Loser.

Sincerely,

Jackie Witkowski

(Ebert gave it one star, I would give the story a three, but since its a summer blockbuster meant to blow things up and show attractive people on screen while you eat your popcorn, I give it a 4 because it completely accomplishes that.  I hope TPTB come to their senses and let Michael Bay have the time he needs to make the 3rd one…it wouldn’t be Transformers without him.)
