Seriously. It doesn’t make up for all of them, because that would be insane. But this cinematic for Transformers: Fall of Cybertron is so fucking awesome/badass/sexually satisfying that I honestly think it might make up for Dark of the Moon, or possibly even the first one. I’m not even much of a Transformers fan and I still had to change my Underoos after seeing it. I’m not going to spoil it — just watch. (Via Seibertron)
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.
