I've Been Down This Road Before....
on May 3, 2012
When I first got the Harry Potter BD set, I was disgusted by the lack on bonus features, especially considering the asking price. Now the clowns who design how DVD and BD release have done it again, and this time with a franchise I grew up with.
There is no questioning the worth of the Transformer film series. Top notch CGI with crazy virtual stunts and amazing articulation of the title characters. Sure, the acting is a 'little shoddy' some times, but we're not all really watching these for Shia. We've been here because we remember the old school Bumblebee (not that he isn't a bazillion times cooler now). We've been here because Peter Cullen has voiced Optimus since we were in grade school. These movies stretch thin the line of the nonsensical, but we keep coming back because giant robots rock (even if Hugh Jackman let us down just a wee bit).
So, in the end, if you just want the films with no frills at all, then this is an epic movie set designed just for you. We the fans are left wanting, and we shall continue to mourn until the folk upstairs get with the program. Epic movies should have a modicum of special features regardless of everything else. Films live past the theatre, so let's all get on the same page please.
