Finally we can wash the stink of Michael Bay off this hallowed franchise! Pat made special care to point that out in this review, since Transformers was (apparently) one of his favorite shows growing up. Jere had a slightly differring view on the series and it showed in his review. On the run in the year of 1987, Bumblebee finds refuge in a junkyard in a small Californian beach town. Charlie, on the cusp of turning 18 and trying to find her place in the world, discovers Bumblebee, battle-scarred and broken. ‘Bumblebee’ is the sixth installment of the live-action Transformers film series and a loose prequel to 2007’s Transformers. There was some good debate here in the battle for disguised robot dominance!
