The intended 1st segment for the previous episode, the venom was in buckets which led it to become its own beast.  After hundreds of movies, we finally let loose on a flick from the Bay shelf - the only one we can really stand to talk about (other than the rock, here's that episode link!).  With so much love for the original Transformers movie (that link here!) & series, we were so PRIMEd to love it.  Alas, Mizzle Bizzle makes it hard to enjoy anything retooled with his equipment.  Chris also give almost 2 cents on Equilibrium, & 6 or 7 cents on Apatow.  

Links:  Bay - The Rock.  John Turturro - Coens II, III.  Tyrese Gibson - Flight of Phoenix

Notes:  Matt was wrong about F7.  It was in the top 10 highest-gross of all time, which we still think is a bit sad.  It wasn't the U.S. that thought so, however - we were about 20% of the total in ticket sales.  Action as a uniform medium for an international audience heavily affects the modern blockbuster market.  The main reason we won't see another Independence Day film:  no one cared in the overseas market...   Here's the top 100 to make you happy and sad.

Matt meant to mention the Audi-geddon in Capt. Amer. Civil War.  Nearly every car in it is an Audi, but at least you have to look to notice...
