Through two full-length, live-action feature films, moviegoers have learned that cars, trucks, jets, tanks, helicoptors, cement mixers, boomboxes, cellphones, satellites, remote-controlled vehicles, soda machines, ballbearings, toasters, vacuum cleaners, the Model T, heck, even people, can be Transformers.
A day after witnessing Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen on the big screen, I was expecting every mechanical thing around me to suddenly transform into a robot.
With all that aforementioned fun in mind, and knowing a third installment of the film is due out in theaters in 2011, here are five every-day things we may take for granted, but would be fun to see transform into warring robots …
Welles’ first feature film was the incomparable Citizen Kane, which was nominated for nine Academy Awards (but won just one). It is generally considered the greatest film ever made.
Welles’ final feature film work appeared in Transformers: The Movie, which was released 45 years after his masterpiece. Welles did some voiceover, told somebody that he was “playing a toy” in a movie about toys who “do horrible things to each other,” and then passed away five days later.
“It’s not trying to be the greatest movie on earth. It’s going to be the best action movie of the summer. Hands down, it will win that. But it’s not trying to be a Golden Globe-nominated film. It’s a badass popcorn summer movie.” — Über-hottie Megan Fox, on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

We’ve just ordered our advance tickets for The Transformers IMAX experience (thank you very much, Moviefone), which sounds awesomely promising.

Sounds outrageously awesome.
In eager and giddy young kid-on-the-night-before-Christmas-like anticipation of this summer blockbuster theater event, Greatest Pro Bowls of all time, and other stuff has a countdown of the top five robots Greatest Pro Bowls of all time, and other stuff is looking forward to seeing in this sequel.
(Important note: No robot that appeared in the original Transformers flick from 2007 will be included. So, it’s all new robots in disguise here, which means these are either robots that were more than meets the eye in the trailers, or robots rumored to be a part of the film. Anyway, this should be fun.)
Let’s transform and roll out …
Tonight is going to be magical.
Tonight, Greatest Pro Bowls of all time, and other stuff is going to see the first big blockbuster of this very promising summer movie season.
That would be X-Men Origins: Wolverine, a feel-good superhero story about a man with metal blades that come out of his hands. Should be a great popcorn flick.
