The live-action Transformers movies are about as close as you can get to a soulless corporate cash grab.

In the first movie at least.
Willie Nelson is a man famous for two things, his country music career and the fact he’s spent the better part of half a century launching a hellacious assault on his internal organs by smoking like a pound of weed a day. Today though we’re here to talk about that time he forgot to pay his taxes.
