Transformers 3: Dark Of The Moon (PG-13)

★☆☆☆☆

In this third installment, we learn that the NASA space program was a cover-up that allowed the crew of Apollo 11 to explore the alien ruins on the dark side of the moon. Sam (Shia LaBeouf) returns with a new girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley). And once again, the Autobots (our friends) take on the Decepticons (not our friends), with humanity and downtown Chicago caught in the middle. Destruction ensues. Michael Bay continues to offer up soulless and frenetic trash.

Running Out of Gas

Humans love anthropomorphism. Ever since Walt Disney first made a mouse whistle and walk on two legs in Steamboat Willie, we haven’t been able to get enough of animals, insects and inanimate objects that act like us. Children are especially prone to this obsession, so it follows that nearly every animated feature produced these days revolves around a cast of non-human characters who sing, dance and spout knowing witticisms that many flesh-and-blood actors could not convincingly pull off.
