No Celery Please – NYC Edition!

More Than Meets The Eye!

The Transformers movie totally rocked.

We went yesterday to the 11:30am show. (we have to go before noon now because the definition of “matinee” has been rolling steadily backwards and they now require cheap-ass MF’s like myself to show up at the theater before noon in order to buy a $5 movie ticket. Otherwise, they are $9 now and, really people, I just think paying $18 for two people to go sit in a dark room with a flickering screen for two hours is a bit much. Yeah, yeah, we do it anyway. I love movies in the sumeertime)

Did I mention the 11:30 show was sold out? Yeah. Theater was full. There’s something cool about seeing amovie in a full theater… the whole crowd laughing and gasping and cheering together. It was cool.

The movie was excellent. OK, OK, it was silly. Very Silly. But, I was expecting silly when I went in. I used to watch the cartoon when I was a kid – the concept is silly. Still, I thought it would be fun.

It was.

Lots of explosions and crashes. A little fake, because none of them resulted in any, you know, blood, or dismembered bodies, but they were going fo the PG, so I guess you can’t blame them for that.

Big fun.

Plus – the robots – man, they looked so real. The CGI was excellent. There were a few places where it really did look like giant robots made out of cars were fighting each other in the middle of the freeway.

Anyway. If you like big, dumb, summer movies where lots of stuff gets blown up and the good guys save the day… this is totally for you.

On a side note. In one part of the movie, the transformers are fighting. And one of the robots takes a swing at the other robot, and the rocket-y things that stuck up off the shoulder of the one snapped right off. The SB leaned over to me and whispered… “Yup – that’s just what those rocket things always did on the toys too.” That’s realism for you!
