Transformers


I may get bashed for my thoughts on this one, but gotta say I did NOT love this show. Maybe it was all the hype, but it was a let down. Honestly though, I don't handle main characters being ugly very well. This sounds very shallow, and maybe it is, but when I'm looking at someone for two hours (or whatever), if they're not pleasant to look at, it really takes away from the show. Shia LeBeouf fit his non-cool high school kid role well, but . . . . ugh. The main girl character was quite pretty, but very skankily dressed! The acting was ok, but the story just wasn't that great. The special effects were very good. All in all, I would rate the cartoon transformers of my youth five stars (out of five) and this movie 2.5.

Bring on the opposition!

I haven't seen it, but that Skia kid bugs me...real bad. And I wouldn't deny his looks have something to do with it. I think in general, the kids that started on the Disney channel bug me. Maybe that will bring on opposition too :)

I haven't seen it yet either...Dan watched it without me. It wasn't kid (two years old and younger at least) appropriate so he went to the study to finish it on his computer and I had to watch the kids...pfft!

I actually loved Transformers... Jeff bought it the day it came out, so maybe it was because he loved it so much that I loved it. I watched all the special features with him before I actually watched the movie (because he'd already seen the movie in the theaters 3 times), so I was in sort of a different frame of mind when I actually saw the movie. The special features on the second disk are pretty cool. (They show how they filmed the blowing up scenes when the main characters were animated... crazy stuff.) It is definitely a guy movie, but I did like it.

Amen to the Matt Damon comment Aunt Gayle.

Well, I loved it. :) I bought it for Nate as soon as it came out and I have been itching to watch it again. Bumblebee rocks!

And I may get flamed for this, but Matt Damon? Eh.

Hilary said...

Yeah, Matt Damon is more...pretty. Plus, he had huge teeth. Huge. I'll take some Brad Pitt with a side of Christian Bale please. And Paul Newman back in the day...yowza.

K, someone needs to start a new topic!

I hated it. Joel rented it a few weeks ago and I sort of watched it with him and I thought it was dumb.
