    Transformers: The Last Knight

    Right when you thought this embattled franchise couldn’t get any worse…it somehow did. It’s as if Michael Bay hadn’t already destroyed every ounce of cool that this franchise once represented that he decided he needed to take one final blow. It’s like he has hear EVERY single criticism levied at the franchise and said, ‘you know what, I’m going to give them MORE of ALL of that’! Heck, he even tries to shoehorn in every single actor that has appeared…

To me though this film really never hooked my interest. I never understood the motivations behind the ‘villain’ played by Jude Law which left me not caring about most of the dramatic beats the film went for. It’s an interesting take on the King Arthur Legend but…
