If you've been reading the site since January, you know that I love to talk with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman. I had a long interview with them in January and then talked with them on video in May about all things Star Trek. Now I'm back again with another interview, this time focusing on Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, which hits theaters tonight. Once you've seen it, let's just say that, there are a lot of questions to ask these guys. And I tried to address some of those and get an idea for how this screenplay came together in the midst of the writer's strike. This full interview is, for the most part, spoiler free!

This interview was shot using my Flip Mino camera. There is an extra 3 minutes talking about Soundwave and Isabel Lucas' character Alice that I cut out of this interview above, however, I have made the complete interview (with those 3 minutes still intact) also available to watch online if you're interested. As always, it's great talking to these guys, even if it's about criticism and some of the rougher parts of their script for Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. If you had any questions (or complaints) coming out of it, then I suggest you start here. Or just watch this to get a glimpse at how they tackled this highly anticipated sequel.
