Giant robot cars go smashy smashy. Clearly, the most entertaining film ever made, and I was on the point of tears throughout.

Perhaps I should explain my curious emotional reaction. Years ago, I was taking my finals, and suddenly stopped having emotions. People react to finals differently, but everyone goes a little potty. So, I became a weirdly serene being.

Except that, there was this one car advert on at the time. A car with really good brakes would come round a hill and not run over a deer. Every time I saw it, I'd be in floods and floods of tears.

To this day, there's nothing like a nicely filmed bit of ABS and decent suspension to make my lip quiver.

So, you can imagine the effect Transformers had on me. Yeah.
