I heart giant robots
If there is a bright and shiny house of hipness, i live about 3 miles away from it - close enough to be in the same zip code, but not really walking distance on a hot afternoon. For that reason, i just got around to seeing Transformers this weekend. My brother took me to see it on Friday night. My expectations weren't real high. When i first heard about a live action Transformers movie i was appalled. When i saw the trailer i thought it might be okay. Various people have told me they liked it. But really, i just wanted some giant robots beating the crap out of each other. I LOVED THIS MOVIE! Plenty of metallic booty kicking, but it was actually funny and kinda smart as well. It looked good. It sounded good. The ex-Disney kid, Shia Lebeouf was good - i mean he even sold the line "Satan's Camaro is stalking me" without it sounding like a line. How can you go wrong with a car that speaks through songs on the radio and tries to get its driver hooked up? I was frankly amazed at how good this movie was; i'm considering going to see it again. And the best part of being a few degrees from hip? I got a great seat in a not too crowded theater with hardly any kids. Rock on.
