Transformers: The Last Knight Reviews Are Filtering In…

TransformersI’m politically liberal, which I mention because it  mystifies me when people fall for a fairly obvious ideologue/fake populist like Donald Trump.

The same reasoning process extends to the movies I enjoy in that the Transformers have always been terrible (I give a pass to the first–it wasn’t great by any means–but it was at least new and novelty matters) but enough people don’t seem to think the same way–especially internationally–that they seem to make lots of money quite reliably, hand over fist.

Despite being loud, obnoxious, sexist and the cinema equivalent of diet soda (less taste and offering dubious benefit) people can’t seem to get enough of them. 

So, it’s very likely that Transformers:  The Last Knight will be a rousing success.

And just like Trump, it sends the entirely wrong message but don’t just take my word for it.

Donald Trump: Ally Of Zelda!?

If you have ever seen Gerry Anderson’s Terrahawks you’re familiar with Zelda of Gak, an android who’s numerous attempts to invade Earth were thwarted by Dr. Tiger Ninestein and his team, known as the Terrahawks.

Speaking of Zelda, she recently released a video from her base on Mars denying any involvement with or connection to the Trump campaign.  And while such meddling in human affairs isn’t beyond her, she also tends to be be pretty open about her attempts to undermine humanity, so I’m guessing that she might be innocent (this time).

Besides, while Zelda may hate humanity with every fibre of her being, she’s never been known for her racism, lying on the verge of being a pathological condition, or overall smarminess.
