The Touch – Pop Culture Curmudguin #35

There are some songs that are just so underrated that it is a crime.  On the top of this list is “The Touch” by Stan Bush, which is best known as the featured song on the original Transformers movie way back in 1986.  But have you ever noticed how that song is used as a background for important scenes?  In this article we will look at the song The Touch as it has been used for various purposes.  I “dare” you not to read this, as I “hunger” to show off this great song.  After all, nothing is going to stand in my way, not tonight…

…and there go three puns that only other serious G1 Transformers marks like me will get. *sigh*

Pop Culture Curmudguin #11: A G1 Fan’s Take on Transformers 4

As one of the original Transformers fans, watching when the first Transformers mini-series aired in September 1984, I have not thought much of the previous live-action movies.  The first was OK, the second was ridiculous with at least 45 minutes of nothing but explosions, and the third I didn’t even bother to watch after glancing in its graphic novel confirmed that I would have no interest in seeing it.  So why the heck am I going to see the fourth live-action movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction?  Simple…ME WANT GRIMLOCK!!!  Since the very first live-action movie I have wanted to see Grimlock on the big screen.  Therefore, for only the second time in the past 10 years I am going to actually go to the first run theatre and see a movie as it premieres, and this will be the first time I’ll be watching a 3D movie on a big screen that isn’t in Disney World.  With both excitement and trepidation, here is my take on the newest movie, going in hoping to find a Transformers movie as good as the 1986 animated film.  If not, then I am feeding Michael Bay to Grimlock.


Review – Transformers: Dark of the Moon [2011]

As someone who enjoyed Revenge of the Fallen more than the majority of people (make of that what you will), I, nevertheless, was still looking forward to this next (and last?) installment of the Transformers franchise. And, man, do I have some mixed feelings on this one. Directed by Michael Bay, and starring Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, Josh Duhamel, Patrick Dempsey, Tyrese Gibson, and John Turturro, it’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon. More
