UFO Film for the Weekend of Oct. 15: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

There was a minor media uproar this summer when it emerged that Megan
Fox scored her role in "Transformers" by shooting an audition tape washing Michael Bay’s Ferrari at his house. This seemed hypocritical to me because "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" is essentially that plus robots. It's not worth getting too mad at "Transformers" because everyone will watch it anyway, and it'll be fun enough if you're (very) drunk. But in terms of movie intoxication, if, say, "Star Trek" is like a nice glass of wine, "Transformers" is like huffing paint thinner.
