Review: “Transformers: The Movie” Blu-ray Dares To Be Stupid and That’s Alright

by Neo Yion September 12, 2016
I love the cheesy aesthetic of 80’s media because they are often shamelessly dumb and driven by the Rule of Cool. Transformers could not have come out at any point before then. The high concept — giant alien robots that transform into vehicles, forever locked in an eternal war between two factions — is mind-blowing to […]

Review: “Quackerz” Lays an Egg

by Ed Liuon June 15, 2016
One of my fundamental precepts of comedy is that ducks are funny, but Quackerz is an animated feature film that is intent on challenging that idea. This Russian import, now available on American shores via Shout! Factory, is a chaotic and messy affair that baffles more than it amuses, and sometimes came close to offending […]

Still Got The Touch! “Transformers: The Movie” Comes To Blu-ray

by Peter Paltridgeon June 9, 2016
Few movies are as beloved by children of the 80’s as Transformers: The Movie. The original 1986 movie, that is, not counting anything afterward. Until now, however, it’s gotten only token treatment in the home video market. Someone must finally be in charge who grew up with this movie, because it’s getting a digitally remastered […]

Review: “Transformers: Robots in Disguise” Season One – (Mostly) Revs Up and Rolls Out

by Ed Liuon May 27, 2016
Enjoying the Transformers franchise means accepting the inherent ridiculousness of the concept, which makes for some extremely cool toys but requires all kinds of story-driven gyrations for any of it to make sense. The most successful Transformers series present characters and problems that are interesting enough on their own merits to keep the audience from […]
