(Click this link and press play now!) Dare to believe you can survive [another Michael Bay Transformers movie]. You hold the future in your hand. Dare. Dare to keep all of your dreams alive [of never having to sit through another one]. It’s time to take a stand. And you can win, if you dare [to stay home when the Bumblebee solo film comes out].
Yes, listeners, it’s fair to say that the reaction from Steve Norman, Owen Hughes and Callum Petch to Transformers 5 / Transformers: The Last Knight / Trans5mers was less than positive. Perhaps it was the lack of Vince DiCola and Stan Bush that sours those films so..? Not even listening to the all-time greatest movie soundtrack ever no backsies can change our opinion.
I say it’s the greatest movie soundtrack ever, but Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver, which is also reviewed on this episode, may have something to say on that matter! In What We’ve Been Watching, we also cover another new release, The Book of Henry, as well as The Skeleton Twins, 80’s exploitation Contamination, and last year’s War Dogs.
We’ll be back again next week with a live episode from The Mitre in Oxford, with a brand new triple bill!
