Transformers opens Tuesday, and I’m expecting another 300 experience: exciting effects and action, cringe-worthy script and acting. So far, online reviewer fanboys seem to like it at least.

And can we please drop the ridiculous attempts to find non-existent political subtexts to mindless entertainment?

That planet was once home to two alien races: the upstanding Autobots and the sneaky Decepticons. (Does anyone but me hear the echo of “Democrats” and “Republicans” in these names?)

I hope Dana Stevens is being sarcastic there (I’ve noted this tendency in her work before).

Before anyone defends the director of such masterpieces as Armageddon and Pearl Harbor from my post title, let me note that it is a song lyric from Team America.
