Trailer Probe: Transformers 2, GI Joe

February 03, 2009

Movies of geekity interest should be only two minutes long, because trailers for those movies make us laugh. They make us cry. They work so hard to make us happy.

Trailer Probe rates the geek explosion content, how much our cortex is combusted with a volley of geekitude, and dork disengagement level is reasons you won't dig it.

Transformers 2

Dork disengagement level: Was that clips from the first one or the new one?

Why is the girl crying? It's cool giant robots!

Geek explosion content: I love the Transformer sound effect from the cartoons in live action.

The best part:

You go, Decepticons! Kick Mutt Williams' ass!

Geek parts per million: 800,000.

GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra

Dork disengagement level: I will see this movie no matter what. So really it's in my best interest to not see any trailers.

But I saw this one. And I can find nothing wrong with 30 seconds of the movie. Another 15 or 20 seconds and I might.

And that thought terrifies me.

Geek explosion content: A half-second of Snake-Eyes!

A half-second of Storm Shadow!

Some lady in a black suit!

"What did you say your unit was called?"

Oh, Dennis Quaid. You are saucy.

Up yours, Eiffel Tower!

Geek parts per million: 900,000. Needs more Snake-Eyes.
