    Transformers: The Last Knight

    ★★★★★

    In his poignant ode to simplicity, Michael Bay's "Transformers: The Last Knight" captures the sensation of how technology can lead to alienation in a way that hasn't been achieved since Radiohead's "OK Computer."

    Working from a meticulously crafted and deeply personal script by Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan (story by Akiva Goldsman, Art Marcum, Matt Holloway and Ken Nolan), Bay shows us the many ways we and our planet have been changed by runaway science - transformed, if…

    i am legit shocked at how bad this was so all i have is a few thought fragments

    at the 1:57 mark my cat stepped on my apple tv remote and shut off hbo max and at first i was mad but after seeing the last 35 minutes of the movie i realized she was just trying to help

    i think the title refers to the last time we would've thought the movie's special effects looked good

    it doesn't feel…

    i haven't cackled with delight through a horror movie the way i did here in forever, and it was pretty much nonstop during the last half-hour. i will be watching this a lot.

    what a picture!
