Hello Im Volts48 and, whether you like it or not, Im your critic.
What is it people want to see in an action movie? People fighting each other with Asian-style close combat, bullets flying everywhere, and things getting blown up; that seems to be the formula. Enter Michael Bay, the director of Armageddon and Pearl Harbor, who brings us, again, another one of his CGI-heavy action thrillers to the big screen where things just get blown the hell up. Only one problem, he forgot the thriller part and replaced the majority of the human characters with crude and rude alien robots. The movie Im referring to is Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.
What can I possibly say about this movie that critics and fans have not already said? Apart from the fact that this film is based on a line of toys from Japan by Hasbro, nothing much. But, in 2007, director Michael Bay teamed up with Steven Spielberg to make a movie that would not only sell more toys but would

He set his briefcase down and hung up his suit coat, then carried the package into the living room.Halloween Costume TF8 years ago in Fantasy More Like This
He had to stop and take a breath, he knew what was in the package, and he was very excited. He set the package down on the sofa and hit the play button on the telephone answering machine on the end table, and it stated, Three new messages. The first of the messages began playing as he pulled out his pocketknife and began cutting the packaging tape on the box.

I tripped as I walked over to it. It was like a giant slide and I slid down for about
half a minute or so. I fell with a sudden thud and lying on my stomach, I slowly got up,
brushing off the rocks sticking to my shirt, and I was shocked at what I saw.
All over the place were little lizards, but I quickly noticed they had wings!
I quickly came to the conclusion that this was...A DRAGON NEST! All of them just seemed
to be staring at me, every now and then I heard a little 'squee' noises they made
every now and then. While still staring at me, they started walking towards me. They
weren't that big, as they were only about the size of baby golden retreivers, but that
wouldn't be a problem, except there were about 15 of them and knew I wouldn't stand a chance
They continued silently walking to me, while I looked all around for a way out,

Lurking out in the fields, a deadly force is rising up
Sneaking up behind our friends, and slaughtering them before us
We've got nowhere to run, they have us beat and surrounded
Our time to strike has come, stand your ground and take them head on
Someone tells me cast your worries and your fears all aside
Harden your spirits, never give into your doubts
Take a breath, brandish your weapon
Recall the oath you have taken
All I can do

Charge your spark and transform
Summon that anger burning inside of you and turn it into strength
All I can do

Call out to arms and transform
Sound out your battlecry
Fight and Go!
During this age of war, we have to face our share of grief
While fights and lives lives are lost, and the outcome seems hopeless
Our enemy is fierce and appears to have the power

"Take the Super Driver off," repeated Lynette firmly, jerking the rifle at Solace's back.
Solace continued to face away from Lynette, "Why?"
"You don't know?" taunted Lynette, "The Super Driver is flashing many coloured lights on your front and back."
"... So? If it's giving you a headache, there's no need to point a gun at me."
Sora was attentively watching the flashing patterns of the lights on Solace's chestplate. "... Take it off," she murmured.
"What? You too?"
"No, seriously, take it off," Sora ordered with force, looking into Solace's eyes.
"Why?" replied Solace, matching the force in her own voice.
"Only one thing freely gets through the Hakurei Barrier," explained Lynette, "Light. The Super Driver is transmitting information about the Thunder Child.

Part 1: Life and Death
Many often spoke of the price of life. Philosophers in nearly every civilization had dedicated their entire lives to speculating on it. One race had even attempted to build a computer the size of a city in an attempt to quantify it. But whatever the price of life was, one thing was sure: It was steep.
It was sometimes easy to forget just how precious life could be after gaining immortality and leading a life of warfare. The Maximal who called himself Gunslinger was not only gaining a lesson in perspective, but economics. Security work paid dirt, even in the slums where guards were paid relatively well. Nevertheless, he had been scrimping and saving for the past thirty years, working until he had enough energon to build a new body one part at a time and grant it the gift of life. He had even sacrificed maintenance on himself and his blue and yellow paint job was mostly worn away. Though, it was hard to tell in the shimmering violet and blue hues of light pr

Time stood still as Marcus Fenix and Master Chief starred each other down, with their respected weapons pointed at each other.
"Look jackass, I don't know who you are, but don't think I'll kill your ass!" Marcus threatened the SPARTAN.
"He's a vulgar one." Cortana commented about the Gear.
"Who said that!" Marcus said in confusion about the voice.

Marcus, obviously annoyed, ignored the two as he was about to open the armory as he heard a gun clicking.

Then the sounds of a chainsaw could be heard as Marcus yelled "Fine then!"

Legends persist of nightmarish creatures that lurked in the shadows and manipulated mankind to feed upon his flesh, blood, and spirit. Likewise tales have risen in popular consciousness of the rugged heroes and heroines who using ancient techniques and weapons vanquish these beasts in human shape or otherwise.
But what's less well known is that these tales are the truth, distantly remembered.

In the midst of the night, Jazz returned from his patrol, silently and smoothly gliding into the abandoned warehouse that served as the home for his fellow Autobots on Earth. It was definitely no Metroplex, but it had a homey feel to it that the garrison lacked. He greeted Bumblebee, who was still up playing Ultimate Bloody Death Combat IX vs. Zombies!. He could see the appeal of video games, but combat simulators were one of the few aspects of human culture that he could not appreciate. He did the real thing for a living; he didn't need to dwell on fighting in his off time either.
His own room had a widescreen TV now, a "welcome to Earth" gift from Sari Sumdac. Flipping through the channels, he finally settled on Men in Black. Jazz rather liked this Will Smith guy, for some reason he couldn't quite put a servo on. The man had style.
