The Transformers/Coen Bros Venn diagram
It's one of the weirdest phenomenons in modern movie history: how is it that so many Coen regulars wind up in Transformers movies? See the culprits as we attempt to figure out what possible motives the guilty parties could have.

Review: Transformers: Age Of Extinction

Transformers: Age Of Extinction
An age of extinction. Well, it does go on for ages, but Michael Bay's fourth Transformers movie, while offering some CGI spectacle to knock your block off, threatens the eradication of the human race but never treats the prospect with much more than an afterthought.

Opinion piece: Everything's awful when you're a snob
In a frankly unbelievable turn of events this week, two properties which have been successful in the past continued to be successful. For reasons yet to be determined, various parties are disgusted by the fact that Transformers: Age Of Extinction and Mrs Brown's Boys D'Movie made so much money at the box-office, satisfying their respective audiences of young people and old people. The school of thought seems to be that audiences shouldn't spend money on movies they want to see – they should spend money on movies we want them to see.

Renaming Mark Wahlberg's Transformers character Cade
I recently learned that Mark Wahlberg's character in Transformers: Age Of Extinction is named 'Cade Yeager', which is a contender for the most ridiculous action hero name of all time. Cade. Cade. It just sounds so... Hollywood. Real people are not called Cade. Help me right this wrong.

Mark Wahlberg found something even more futile to run from than the wind
This new poster for Transformers: Age Of Extinction shows that Mark Wahlberg is still unclear about exactly what he can and can't run away from. Can run away from: people, cars, explosions (at a push). Can't run away from: responsibility, wind, giant planet-sized evil robot alien overlords.

Most perfect headline/photo juxtaposition of the day
No, of course Transformers 4 is not a kids' movie. It's actually a ponderous, meditative tone poem about the exploration of the self. It just happens to feature a space alien robot truck riding a space alien robot dinosaur while holding a big sword. Directed by Terrence Malick. (via /Film)

How I have not noticed Mark Wahlberg's stubby fingers before?
The first official picture from Transformers: Age Of Extinction doesn't feature any robots or explosions, but it does reveal that Mark Wahlberg has stubby fingers. Another highbrow post, after the jump.

Is Ken Jeong Hollywood's most irritating man?
The new poster for The Hangover: Part III is here, and Ken Jeong looks more punchable than ever, even in two dimensions. Is Jeong the most annoying actor working in Hollywood? (Spoiler: he is).
