Saw Transformers tonight, and it passed the subterranean bar of my expectations. The highlights: surprisingly good cameos, someone actually says "Kill them all," some fun action, quasi-recognizable Transformers. The lowlights: even given the premise, science was ignored; writing/directing/acting (as usual), the rest of the Transformers, the attempts to make it seem significant or emotional. The story actually is worse than the first two, but individual scenes are definitely better than the second. It will be exactly what you expect, whatever you expect.
Harry Potter What-If #3:
What If the Ford Anglia had something better to do (pretty much anything) than rush into Spider Grove and save Harry and Ron? Harry and Ron become tasty spider treats, and OldTom sacrifices Ginny to corporealize (bad year for the Weasleys!). I think OldTom would polish off Voldemort and his horcruxes. Would Neville become the new Chosen One? Maybe, but OldTom's the kind of up-and-comer who would finish what he started.
