    Transformers: The Last Knight

    ★★★½

    Probably the best Transformers movie in a decade. I was genuinely surprised. It was a pretty overloaded movie, but the stakes and the scale were staggering. The writers crafted a compelling story, which is something the franchise has been missing almost since it’s inception.

    I also enjoyed the relevance of the characters. Throughout a majority of this franchise the humans have mostly just been brave individuals with little significance, but this installment changed that. Mark Wahlberg is hard to dislike;…

    ★★

    It’s rare that a film feels poorly paced, hard to follow and showcases ill-defined characters all at the same time. I expected Steve McQueen to hit a few of a those marks; hell, I expected him to hit them out of the park. Unfortunately, Widows was just kind of messy.

    ★★★★★

    All I can say is that sometimes allegory really works for me, and sometimes it doesn’t. Unfortunately, this is one of the times it doesn’t. My podcasting partner Matt said that this movie is going to sit with him for a while. I agree with that. It’s remarkably powerful. The visuals and camera work were a serious achievement. I think maybe the allegory was just a little blunt for me. It’s an impressive movie worth seeing, but I don’t know that I consider it remarkable.
