Okay, saw Transformers today! I actually enjoyed it, but it definitely had its problems. For enumeration of said problems, check out my friend Steve's review HERE
(possible spoilers). I think he puts it quite well and points out all the problems (and strengths) of it. His review is coming from the point of view of someone who's been obsessed with Transformers for, like, 20-some years, but I actually had the same problems with it and I barely watched any Transformers as a kid.
There was a REALLY interesting trailer before Transformers, though, for the project that J. J. Abrams is working on right now, to come out in January. It's currently untitled but IMDB says they've been calling it 'Cloverfield' internally. It DEFINITELY looks like something to watch out for...
