    ★★★ Watched 27 Jan, 2015

    Weird as fuck and funny as hell.

    This movie has so many meta-jokes and pointless run-offs that it's hard to focus on it all, but it's also had not to laugh out loud at it's over the top absurdity.

    None of it really makes sense. The vague plot and meta plot that are happening at the same time are just there to keep somewhat of a story going.

    ★½ Watched 28 Jun, 2014

    I won't say that it was good, or even that entertaining. It's a total turd. But, it's the Bayiest Micheal Bay movie ever Bayed. Which means it's nothing but one-liners and explosions. It's a good turn your brain off film. Nothing more. No real cinematic story. Just lots of splosions.
