Transformers: Less Than Meets The Eye

An infuriating trailer which quick-fades to black every damn time you're about to get a decent look at a Transformer.

I get the "Don't show the monster" thing, but that rule has been mothballed for years. Trailers now show just about everything, including, sometimes, the final plot point of a movie.

A dark, gritty, realistic-looking version of the Transformers -- in other words, a totally jackass interpretation of trucks that turn into giant bipedal robots.

From Michael Bay, of course, who brought us Armageddon, a dark, gritty, realistic portrayal of Ben Affleck's chin-sphincter.

Much Better... Unless you consider it heresy. What's cooler than the Millenium Falcon? How about a Transformer Millenium Falcon -- actually, two Transformers, as the fore and aft the ship transform into two different robots.

Click on the video here to see the Millenium Falcon transform into a "Han Solo Mech" and a "Chewbacca Mech" to battle the Slave One's transformation into a "Boba Fett Mech."

Blasphemy? Eh, after the prequels, I don't know if blaspheming Star Wars is possible any more.

Thanks to Andy the Dorky Squirrel.
