In 2007, Transformers returned to the big screen. A new generation was turned on to new versions of the toys that made it so fun to be a kid in the 1980s, but now Michael Bay was in charge.
Joining Sid and James to talk about 2007's Transformers is Gabriel Owens, AKA The Salty Seaman (YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/user/recharge138). Gabriel has a show called Military Bullshit where he points out inaccuracies in movie portrayals of the military. He joins us to talk about the cars of Transformers and the military BS.
Between explosions and Megan Fox running in slow motion, Transformers is actually a fun movie. James and Gabriel plead the case to Sid that Michael Bay's insanity doesn't ruin this movie - sure, there are the usual complaints, but in retrospect, it's a fun shot of energy to something we grew up with.
General Motors paid to play in this movie so most of the good guys are GM cars. How did those choices work out? How does this movie stack up from a military standpoint?
