It was a good popcorn flick. Nothing more, nothing less.

As soon as I read the first paragraph I knew not to watch the video. Yet again movie snobs are among us.

Man I don't know if it was even a good popcorn flick. That shit was so long I don't even remember what happened.

I was surprised by how much I liked TF4.

This one ranks up there with the first one. Lots of great Autobot action, Whalberg is so much better than LaBeef, and Lockdown is a total badass.

Transformers 4 was an amazing movie. End of story

When they killed Ratchet I was so upset and pissed at humans I was like [frick] my species we suck, I take alien side anyday over humans.

Once I go back and watch the earlier movies it's gonna be so sad to see Jazz, Ratchet, and Ironhide walking around not knowing that they're gonna die 😢

When you look into a dumpster, there are two kinds of garbage.

1) Smelly brown-stained trash.
2) Stuff that people have discarded now covered in smelly brown-stained trash.

You may see a perfectly fine sofa in a dumpster, maybe it's a hideous color and has some torn upholstery, but it doesn't belong in a dump. Maybe you can dig it out of the dumpster, clean it, and put it in your spare room, but it's still going to have a slight smell of the inside of a dumpster. The first type of trash has so completely infected the second type, that it's become unusable.

Michael Bay is the first kind of trash. Transformers 4: Age of Extinction is the second kind of trash.

It had it's shit moments but it was surprisingly good. No worse than any other Transformer movie but certainly better than the others.

Still haven't seen it. Might wait for it to come out on FX, two years from now.

These guys are the opposite of "movie snobs". They're really funny, playful, un-snobby guys.

Also, this is the first time I've had to skip through this podcast, since I haven't seen Age of Extinction yet. But I will just so I can listen through this episode in its entirety.
