Personally, I have only seen the first Transformers. It was terrible.
My current obsession is the Epic Rap Battles of History youtube channel. What could have been a stupid idea is redeemed by clever editing, well produced music, and just a whiff of actual research. They also somehow managed to get some pretty big guest names to play some of the characters.

Hulk Hogan vs Kim Jong-il
Bruce Lee vs Clint Eastwood
Gandhi vs Martin Luther King Jr.
Mozart vs Skrillex

If you think that was showing off, watch this for something completely different. I used to play snooker for my school(!) but I never saw anything like this in any of the snooker dives in the seedy underbelly of Oamaru.

It is good to see the team behind the pulpy orange juice ad are still hard at work.
