Transformers 4 looks to be on-track to be the first movie of 2014 to open with a $100 million weekend, and-thusly-had to have a Killing Time presence and coverage. I was fortunate enough that my good friend Peter, The Reasonable Critic, volunteered to do KT’s first-ever guest review, so I will get out of the way and let him tell you of the fourth outing of Cybertron’s best. ~Dave
Long ago I made a vow to only write positive reviews of movies I like, and yesterday, sure that Transformers 4 would be even worse than the first three, I decided to violate that directive as a favor to Dave. He’s taken far too many for the team this summer. It was the least I could do to watch this for him, and write up a review. But Dave is going to be sorry he asked me, because I am about to throw his blog into utter disrepute. I liked Transformers: Age of Extinction.

I don’t want to particularly bum you out, but the summer movie season is essentially over.

OK, sigh, this looks awesome. The trailer was great and now this just looks so supremely cool I made it my wallpaper. The theme of the trailer is a very different relationship now exists between Transformers and humans. The third film pretty much leveled Chicago and there are billboards in the trailer “Remember Chicago”; “Transformers are Dangerous” with an 800 number to call if you spot one. The second poster was in the trailer and is part of the film’s viral marketing at http://www.transformersaredangerous.com. Drink in the coolness and don’t think it will translate on screen. This is the man who gave Devastator a giant robot scrotum. He’s the same guy.
