Ebert defends intelligence and critical-thinking while arguing that Transformers 2 is a BAD FILM. I had the same argument last week over an incredibly stupid blog post that argued that “critics” don’t enjoy entertaining films. Anybody who reads Ebert on a regular basis knows that he’s got a big soft spot for low-brow stuff. (After all, he was the writer for Beyond the Valley of the Dolls!) It’s not about being an action movie; it’s about being a really bad action movie.
