Transformers Hall of Fame 2013 Winners Revealed at BotCon

Just moments ago, Hasbro revealed the 2013 entrees to the Transformers Hall of Fame.

This year’s TRANSFORMERS Hall of Fame class, as entirely voted on by TRANSFORMERS fans online, consists of the following two characters:

bw_megatronBEAST WARS MEGATRON

An insane, hyper-intelligent criminal mastermind who led a group of renegade PREDACONS to Earth in search of the Energon they would need to conquer CYBERTRON, MEGATRON became so much more than a petty felon. When the search led to the discovery of alien artifacts, MEGATRON launched an assault on Time itself, seeking to change history to his benefit. He nearly destroyed CYBERTRON in his mad quest to exterminate the TRANSFORMERS, and was stopped only when OPTIMUS PRIMAL brought him down. He returned, determined to have his vengeance, and his battle with the MAXIMAL leader raged across the multiverse!

As the commander of the most elite AUTOBOT special forces unit ever assembled, you’d expect ULTRA MAGNUS to be just about one of the most unstoppable warriors this side of the galactic core. You’d be right. If there is any AUTOBOT the DECEPTICONS fear as much as OPTIMUS PRIME, it is ULTRA MAGNUS. His battle hammer has crushed chassis from one side of the galaxy to the other. No battlefield on which his armored feet have stepped has ever been yielded to the DECEPTICONS.

Iron Man 3: So Awesome. Or… Not.

(Original Subheader: SO AWESOME!!! Wait… hold up… did I just see that, let me think…. Oh… wait.. not as awesome as I thought! *GASP*)

Ok gang, so it’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed a film, and yes you’ve probably read a million reviews on this film.  But this one is FULL of SPOILERS, cursing, and full on hate for this film,  so consider yourself WARNED!

Overall I give Iron Man 3 a C- ….  Yes that’s right, a C-.

Forget the fact that this movie made $700 Million so far, REMEMBER it opened up in EUROPE A WEEK EARLY!  Which I’ve learned that Europeans have no taste in good movies.  I mean the Europeans spent nearly $300 Million on the last Resident Evil installment when the US only spent $25 Million… Tells ya something.

This movie is honestly the worst in all the three Iron Man films, because of a number of details which I will mention here….

SPOILER ALERT…..SPOILER ALERT……SPOILER ALERT!!! Read more
