Malkovich, McDormand: Transformers 3 Aims for Respect

From what I’ve heard, I didn’t miss anything.
Now, though, both Academy Award nominated John Malkovich and Academy Award winner Francis McDormand are about to pick-up very generous paychecks for trying to make this crap compelling in some way. That alone is worth the price of admission. Remember that whole “He’s so good, I’d pay to watch him read the phonebook”. Well, now here’s your chance.
