Transformers 3. I don't know if you've heard of this, Tim, but in the business we call show. that was called a "teaser trailer" How does it look like anything?

I agree that it's not anything for people to get excited about, but it's also not something to be negative about.

I think the most you could get excited about is the historical fiction of us going into space and actually finding aliens, but that's it. It took me a long time to actually sit and watch Transformers 2, and I think that I am no better for watching it. Like any sequel, it was long and overblown.

I don't hate Michael Bay for being Michael Bay, but I don't like Transformers all that much. Still, I would watch the 3rd film- just 2 years after everyone else.

No, the history of the filmmaker and the last two Transformers movies is the thing to be negative about. And you are right, it is a teaser, which is why I am baffled that people who trashed ROTF as the worst movie ever made are excited and willing to pay money to see "Dark of the Moon".

So how many movies do you give a director before you don't trust 'em?

For example, I might give Tim Story another chance, even though he not only didn't make good on any of his promises for FF 2, but actually made an even more terrible film. I'd probably have to be tricked into it, though. I'd have to be visiting someone and see his movie on TV.

What's unbelievable about a town near caves and haunted houses?

House of Mystery sucked.

Writers would sometimes write short stories with open endings or continuing stories so they might get hired again.

Attacking an ice cream truck isn't so preposterous if you know about the stories of people of more recent times attacking cars, planes and balloons they thought were demons and dragons.
