Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

With “Transformers: Age of Extinction” on the horizon, it’s time to buckle up and relive Michael Bay’s loud, underwritten, headache-inducing follow-up to the first “Transformers.” Seriously. It gave all of us headaches.

First ‘Real Steel’ Set Photos
Tuesday, June 15 by

Filming began yesterday on Hugh Jackman's robo-pugilism adventure Real Steel and we have the first set photos courtesy of USA Today. In the film, Jackman plays a washed up boxer who, along with his son, promotes and coaches a robotic fighter to win a boxing championship. We get a good glimpse at the robot, Noisy Boy, in the first pic and note that this is not a CG character. That's an honest-to-goodness robot pictured with Jackman. Sure, there is always the danger that it might go haywire and attack the crew, but it's still far safer than working with "Rampage" Jackson. Once his cold eyes are upon you, you're already dry-humped. You just don't know it yet.CHECK OUT THE PHOTOS AFTER THE JUMP…

5 MOVIE ROBOTS THAT DIDN’T WORK
Wednesday, May 13 by

The '09 summer movies have already begun to arrive, but still to come are  some of the biggest, baddest, FX-iest movies around. For robot fans, you can look no further than three of the biggest releases this summer: Terminator Salvation, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and (if it sticks to the cartoon’s use of robot drones to satisfy the ratings board) G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. [No, colons are not movie code for “Robot Plot.”] Robots are on the A-List now, but they didn't always have it so good.  Here are five cinematic robots that just didn’t work (as they were intended):   T-800 from Terminator Program: Kill Sarah Connor, period.
