Ugh. First of all, just hearing John Turturro’s voice while the Bayformers are on the screen makes me angry and kind of nauseous. Second of all, why are all the cars loaded with secret guns and cannons and shit? Looks like Bay has found yet another way to keep from having to show robots in his fucking Transformers movie. Thanks to Ryan A. for the tip. And +10 nerd points to anyone who gets the MST3K reference in the article title.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
