Optimus Prime in Transformers: The Last Knight

Transformers: The Last Knight a.k.a WHAT THE F*** DID I JUST WATCH

After I saw Transformers: Age of Extinction, I didn’t think it was possible for Michael Bay to make a worse movie. Because it was bad. Painfully bad. So much so that I thought he’d straight-up drop this franchise into the ocean like Megatron and pretend it never existed. I was wrong.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Finally Shows Us the Dark Side of Killing

Yesterday, I spent about 13 hours on planes and in airports, which sucked. On the bright side though, I had time to re-read Catching Fire before seeing the movie (and I’m not kidding when I say I went straight from the airport to the theater). I love re-reading books before I go see their film adaptations. Not because I want to moan and groan about how they’re nothing like the books (It’s stupid to think something created for a print medium would translate the same in a visual medium). I just like seeing how things get interpreted. But I know some people care about the films staying true to the books. So, just for good measure, this movie is about 75-80% accurate, which is pretty good by Hollywood standards.
