The Unloved, Part 9: "Transcendence"

Scout Tafoya's video series "The Unloved" has already reached into all corners of the cinematic room with pieces on well-known bombs like "Ishtar," recent disasters like "John Carter," and even auteur misfired like "Pola X." This month, Tafoya turns to a film that was just released on Blu-ray and DVD after a disappointing run in theaters earlier this year, Wally Pfister's directorial debut, "Transcendence." Critics and audiences were brutal to the film in theaters. Now that it's available on the home market, Tafoya argues for a reappraisal.
