Movie Review: 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen'

... I wasn't even remotely interested in seeing the first Transformers film. Even the trailers, I thought, looked awful ... So, of course, I've been wondering for weeks as the trailers for the sequel rolled out, why?

Thus, this piece this morning on the Washington Post gave me a good chuckle ...

With its fascist sensibility, assortment of smutty asides, illiterate gold-tooth-wearing homie robots and the hero's brainless mother, much of "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is simply despicable. So complaining about one's physical discomfort seems petty. But given the relentless din, the Leni Riefenstahl-inspired music and the headache-inducing visuals, OSHA should probably be investigating the conditions under which human beings made this thing. Or the conditions under which they watch it.
EW.com also has this.
