That Shelf created a list of amazing panels to check out at Fan Expo Canada this weekend.
Bumblebee actor Ricardo Hoyos talked to That Shelf about what separates this film from the rest of the series.
Bumblebee's director and screenwriter care more about teen angst than interplanetary conflict – and that's a good thing!
But what are the biggest movie franchises out there? Let’s look at some of the best-known film franchises.
In honour of the release of Pacific Rim: Uprising, here are eight Japanese mecha franchises that made the giant fighting robot genre what it is today.
Transformers: The Last Knight opens across Canada June 21st but you and a guest can attend a screening in Toronto or Montreal on June 19th courtesy of Dork Shelf and Paramount Pictures!
Street Fighter V is an excellent fighting game that makes little effort to reach out to newer players.

I will keep it brief since Transformers: Dark of the Moon director Michael Bay can't seem to do it himself. Do you just want to see some shit blow up? If you answered in the affirmative, then you will probably greatly enjoy this film a whole lot more than the second entry in the franchise since you will actually be able to SEE what is happening for a change.

With Jess absent, Gavin and Jeff have a frank and deep discussion about the current state of media, lament having to grow up and reminisce about their respective dorky childhoods. They also discuss the always timely subject of the Transformers motion pictures.
