Transformers (2007)

A long time ago, far away on the planet of Cybertron, a war is being waged between the noble Autobots (led by the wise Optimus Prime) and the devious Decepticons (commanded by the dreaded Megatron) for control over the Allspark, a mystical talisman that would grant unlimited power to whoever possesses it. The Autobots managed to smuggle the Allspark off the planet, but Megatron blasts off in search of it. He eventually tracks it to the planet of Earth (circa 1850), but his reckless desire for power sends him right into the Arctic Ocean, and the sheer cold forces him into a paralyzed state. His body is later found by Captain Archibald Witwicky, but before going into a comatose state Megatron uses the last of his energy to engrave into the Captain's glasses a map showing the location of the Allspark, and to send a transmission to Cybertron. Megatron is then carried away aboard the Captain's ship. A century later, Captain Witwicky's grandson Sam Witwicky (nicknamed Spike by his friends) buys his first car. To his shock, he discovers it to be Bumblebee, an Autobot in disguise who is to protect Spike, who possesses the Captain's glasses and the map engraved on them.

Godzilla (2014)

Godzilla (2014)

reviewed by: max crawford "the eventual climactic monster showdown is everything a godzilla fan could hope for." if you're a film in 2014 and you're still relegating female characters to tragic backstory or hero's moping wife roles, you need to sit down and have a word with yourself. the only female character with any real agency in gareth edwards' godzilla is a 300-foot monster that eats nuclear submarines. it's a shame, because it's the sort of film you want to be shouting about from the rooftops, and adding niggling little caveats somewhat ruin the effect. not only is it an astounding spectacle, it's a proper godzilla movie, spitting atomic fire in the face of roland emmerich's misbegotten 1998 atrocity. the opening titles set the tone: over a montage of 1950s atomic bomb tests, the credits appear alongside tantalising snippets of information which are quickly whited out as if by a censor. the sequence was designed by kyle cooper, the man behind the main titles for se7en and every other film with a decent main title sequence, and it neatly reflects the teasing approach taken to revealing big g himself. that's right, there's plenty of trivial human nonsense to be gotten out of the way before we encounter any monsters at all, let alone their king. if you simply must have humans in your film, bryan cranston and juliette binoche are two pretty solid picks. their early scenes in a nuclear power plant in tokyo lend the film a grounding and emotional heft that's rare in a summer … (Read More)
