Megan Fox's hotness makes this 'Transformers: ROTF' review even awesomer

November 4, 2009 |  8:02 pm

"If you're drowning in an Olympic swimming pool full of hot chewing gum fondue, do you still care if Megan Fox likes you?"

-- Charlie Jane Anders, "Michael Bay Finally Makes an Art Movie"

This review of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" was written long before this blog was born, back in the ancient time known as "summer," in the season of the "blockbuster," before the coming of the "Oscar contenders that tend to be depressing."

But that doesn't mean it's not still worth reading, even though it's getting dark early these days. Think of this as the review's DVD release. (Note that, like the movie, Ms. Anders' review is rated PG-13, in this case for vivid, non-vulgar vocabulary that nevertheless wouldn't be seen in a "Family Circle" cartoon.)
