The studio decided not to screen TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT for critics, and after paying their own money to see it, Tysen Webb, Andy Farnsworth and Aaron Zundel can easily see why not.  (Adam Thomas wisely didn't spend any of his money or his time seeing it.)

In this podcast (which DOES contain spoilers), we review the film and talk about what exactly we think is going on with the multi-billion dollar movie-based-on-a-toy franchise.  There were some redeeming qualities we saw (Peter Cullen! Frank Welker!), but it wasn't enough to make up for it's many and massive problems.  You almost can't believe some of the things we saw and heard Sir Anthony Hopkins(!) do in this movie.  However, you CAN believe some of the things director Michael Bay did: disregarding plot elements he himself had established in earlier films; having key characters disappear for large chunks of the movie; having terrible dialogue.

We also talk about why even CARE what happens next with Optimus Prime, Megatron, and the Transformers franchise? The answer goes deeper for some of us than others.  Give us a listen and see what YOU think, then tell us in the comments!
