There’s not a lot the ‘Transformers’ movies and ‘The Big Lebowski’ have in common. Yet, buried within ‘Age of Extinction’ is a very Dude-like easter egg for those who are paying attention. Did you miss it? Don't worry, we've got that, and a lot more for you, in the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies. Roll out!
Some have said that the ‘Transformers’ franchise is slowing down. ‘Age of Extinction’ was the most poorly-reviewed movie in the year-end box-office top-ten list—and the most poorly-reviewed movie in any year-end box-office top-ten list over the last 15 years. Its 18 percent on Rotten Tomatoes is the worst for any blockbuster since 1998’s ‘Godzilla’ (16 percent). While that may be true, ‘Age of Extinction’ was also the only movie to make more than $1 billion worldwide at the box office last year (beating ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ by over $300 million).
