It’s a luxury to make a movie like this because all of the emotional resonance and significance has been created in the prior seven films. The characters are already strong because they’ve
I almost don’t want to say anything nice about it, by virtue of it being Transformers. But there are good things in this movie that can’t entirely be ignored.
I never really felt driven to see this, because I don’t really love Robert Downey Jr. and I’ve kind of been over Jude Law since 2004 (more for cheating on his wife with his nanny than the massive glut of his movies from that year). What I forgot to factor in, however, was that I really like Guy Ritchie!

Mostly Tron: Legacy was awesome. Not great, but kind of awesome.
Let me say first that I never saw the first Tron. It was just never on my radar as a kid and then I had no reason to watch it once I grew up and never
