    Chris...are you seriously trying to say that we need Batman and Robin cheese?

    Chris. You're ill. Lie down.

    He wrote Batman and Robin, he adapted A Beautiful Mind. You should at least get the panic kit on standby.

    He wrote Batman and Robin to confirm to Joel Shumacher's desire to revisit Batman's 60s feel. I feel like it's unfair to point to that and say "he's a terrible writer."

    I can't help but hear the constant thunder in my audio. It was storming like crazeballs at the time.

    You know what?

    I admire you for still having faith in the film franchise. You are a less cynical person than me.

    The last thing I would want to be is one of TJ's "people".

    Hehe :D  Much appreciated sir.

    The truth is I think the whole thing has a bad rap. I feel like the disaster that was RotF made everyone retroactively hate the first film. Which was unfair, in my opinion. I still think it holds up as a solid popcorn flick. DotM was just...kinda ok. AoE though? I felt that it, while far from perfect, was a huge step in the right direction. Particularly when it came to giving the Cybertronians screen time and character.

    So all in all? I would say the live action film series is trending upward. Not that's starting from a high point. Just that I think the last film pushed it into a very intriguing direction.

    When you guys were responding to the listener question & struggling to come up with a different name for Starscream, I was somewhat dissapointed that you just didn't rename him Cobra Commander.

    He's already the Decepticon Air Commander, so Cobra Commander isn't too much of a stretch, plus there's the whole Chris Latta connection.

    Also, Devastator would get the new name Chuck, because anything short of Devastator is just a joke.
