    This Will Go Over Well, We're Sure: Michael Bay Writes To Theater Projectionists

    We'd always assumed the humble projectionist had next-to-no contact with the people who actually made the movies, but recent weeks have shown that that's not true at all; the recent disclosure that Terrence Malick had personally written to theaters across the country with certain specifications for "The Tree of Life" has unleashed a sea of similar memos, including Stanley Kubrick on "Barry Lyndon" and David Lynch on "Mulholland Drive." And it's not surprising, considering that all filmmakers worth their salt would want their film to be displayed in the best possible manner. The latest to join th...

    Michael Bay Blows Up Earth & Everything In 'Transformers 3' Super Bowl Spot

    Man, watching the reactions to this one on Twitter was epic and awesome. It was like the sound of 5,000 nerd boners just light up your feed. Love your shit blowed up real good?
