DVD Tuesday: Great! More damn money for Michael Bay!
Transformers would have been perfect as a 20-minute demo reel for ILM. Instead, it's a long, dull live-action cartoon. And I still don't understand all the fuss about Shia LaBeouf. He's good. Not amazing. Good. No one saw A Mighty Heart at the theater, but it's worth a rental. Angelina Jolie the Actress has been replaced by Angelina the Star, but she doesn't get in the way of a gripping, horrifying story. No one thinks of Richard Gere as a great actor, but The Hoax is further proof that's exactly what he is. Hilary Swank makes bad choices, too.
