More Than Meets The Eye

I saw Transformers tonight. And I loved it! I loved it so much that I had to come home and blog about it immediately. It was completely ridiculous and cheesy and unbelievable...but it's a movie about good and evil robots who come to earth and battle...what do you expect?? The dialogue wasn't as horrible as I was expecting and it was actually quite funny. A good way to spend a Friday night and $8.50 (that's right, student tickets in Portland are $8.50...whoo hoo!! And yes...I'm still getting student tickets, call me a thief...or as my mom would say...thieth). One thing that I realized tonight, is that I love that I have lived in two of the most filmed cities in movies (DC and LA...too bad I'm missing New York). I love that I've called those places home and can recognize my home in the totally fabricated shots of the pentagon and the streets of downtown LA. It just steps up my fuzzy happy warm spot smile as I enjoy my movie going experience.

I cant wait to see t-formers. I have to go see it by myself this week (Cheyn opted out). I am so excited.

when I was a kid I used to watch the cartoon and play with my transformer whenever the matching one was on the screen.

The best part of watching Pirates III was the preview for Transformers. I think most people have seen it already, so I might just go catch a matinee by myself some afternoon.

Also, I'd highly recommend Fast and the Furious, Tokyo Drift. Watched it the other night on a friend's projection screen, and it was SUGOKU SUTEKIIII (translation: OUTRAGEOUSLY COOL). Dialogue was pure drivel, but the driving was amazing.
