Transformers




Transformers was one of my favorite toys and cartoon shows as a kid, but freakin' Michael Bay made it into a modern day Godzilla vs. Mecha Godzilla movie. The story sucked, but the action and special effects were good. It could have been a much better movie. GM must have bought the studios off, since they turned BumbleBee into a 70's Camaro and then into a 2009 Camaro. He used to be a Volkswagen Bug.

In the thousand year war between the Autobots and the Decepticons, their battles have lead them to Downtown Los Angeles. They totally laid waste to all the buildings down there. Fortunately, my friend Andy who lives on one of the blocks they demolished survived. You can check out some of the photos here:

C, 71.

Sorry I haven't been posting my movie reviews. I've been getting lazy. I'll probably keep my reviews real short too.

I've just been listing movies that I've seen here:

To be expected from Michael Bay. Do still want to see this film, though.

good to know. my husband has been wanting to see this one although i haven't had the need to go to a movie theater in years. this might be a good one; despite the lack of depth, there is something to be said for the special effects on the big screen.

Yeah, the special effects make it a fun movie. I was disappointed with the story though.
