Bumblebee – ‘A mystical bond between man and machine’

In direct contrast to my post this week about struggling to care for the Westworldian robots, now I’m all over-excited at the thought of this Transformer’s spin-off featuring the one and only Bumblebee.

Of course, part of that is because Haiz is in it, but equally, it’s hard not to love that big yellow beast, isn’t it? I wonder why I care more about the machine with headlights for shoulders than the one that looks and feels and is acted by a human being.

I only had a vague interest in Transformers in the first place, and the previous film efforts haven’t done a huge amount to help. Will this be better? Who knows?

Still, the cassette tape bit is fabulous.
