Indiewire's New York critic Eric Kohn and I hit Skype again to debate movies and the state of Hollywood. Does "Transformers" represent what's wrong with the movie industry today?

As for what's right, we both like new movies from the Weinstein Co. this weekend.  John Carney's "Begin Again" is a genuine music movie that doesn't fall into romantic comedy tropes, while Eric gushes over "Snowpiercer" (again). He wants the Weinsteins and Bong Joon-ho to give Paramount and Michael Bay a run for their money. Don't you?
