Michael Bay’s continued efforts to be taken seriously have now been manifested in a rather unfortunate way, with the announcement of the full title of his Transformers sequel. Semi-coloned film titles are SO 2003, but nonetheless Hollywood keeps churning them out. This time the victim is our beloved shape-shifting 80s toy line. Titled Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, it’s obvious that screenwriter Ehren Kruger simply wanted to foreshadow the doubtlessly overwrought dialogue with a laughably dramatic title, which could easily serve as the name for a Paul Verhoeven-directed flick about angry Holocaust survivors bent on bloody revenge. Or cool robots that turn into vehicles and kick ass! Pow pow!
