Dear Metropolis (specifically Don Morton),
I am an 11-year-old boy and I am absolutely disgusted by the fact that your film reviewer can give a film (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) a bad review WITHOUT EVEN WATCHING THE FILM!!! Think about the film’s target audience Don, not your own intellectual prejudice. I AM going to see the film ANYWAY.
Yours, Joe S.

Title in Japan: トランスフォーマー/リベンジ
Director: Michael Bay
Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Turturro
Year: 2009
Country: USA
Running Time: 147 min

Joe, you are to be commended for standing up for what you believe in. Don’t ever lose that. To be honest, I often wish I were 11 years old. Not from any real desire to go through puberty again, but because it would make my job easier: a good percentage of the movies released these days, especially by people like Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer, are made specifically to dazzle people your age out of their allowances (and to sell toys). Nevertheless, repentant and contrite, or perhaps because there are no other films opening this week, I caught a screening ANYWAY to see if I was right to have skipped it. I was. Not a coherent thought in two and a half hours; repetitive, noisy and content-free. I am thinking about the film’s target audience, Joe, when I suggest that you go read a book. P.S. I’m going to skip the second sequel, too.
