Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen ★★½

This ... isn't as bad as I remember it being. Oh, it's still super racist and sexist and gross, and the massive final action sequence has no sense of geography, and the Autobots are still pushed to the background in favor of pointless human drama, and Sam's character is even more obnoxious than before, and the entire subplot with the roommate, and the sexy lady Decepticon needed to be cut at the script stage ...

... what was I saying again? Oh, it's still fun. The other action sequences are excellent and the backstory, while goofy, provides some heightened stakes. The humor is getting grosser and more juvenile, but, I dunno, guys, I guess I just like watching giant robots wail on each other.
