transformers

“Many millions of years ago on the planet Cybertron, life existed. But not life as we know it today. Intelligent robots that could think and feel inhabited the cities. They were called Autobots and Decepticons. But the brutal Decepticons were driven by a single goal, total domination. They set out to destroy the peace loving Autobots, and a war between the forces of good and evil raged across Cybertron. Devastating all in it’s path, draining the planets once rich sources of energy. The Autobots on the verge of extinction battled valiantly to survive.”

NICE NEH!

before watching the movie, i was sceptical. i thought it was an over-hyped, lame attempt at a cartoon-turned-big screen movie...

but its actually pretty cool wei. so, yea i got a lil dizzy cos i sat a little bit too in front during the big fight scenes and i was sorta blurr cos i couldn't really tell who were the autobots n who were the decepticons (i'm a girl ok). talk about lame names... but u gotta forgive them cos they just stuck to the 1980s original.

lol... look how much they've grown.
simple little faces into insectoid metal heads.

I'M SO OLD!!! cos i still remember (vaguely) watching those lame-ass cartoons neh. but i cant remember whether i had any transformers... optimus prime is pretty familiar, i recall tucking heads into slots but i don't remember transformation into cars.

the whole transformers things is wasted on me tho, cos i enjoyed the military coordination, the hot soldiers and the human story more than the battle between the alien robots. that doesn't mean bumblebee doesn't rock!

did u else realise a lot of the actors were tv-stars?
shia lebouf : louis stevens, even stevens
josh duhamel : danny mccoy, las vegas
amaury nolasco : fernando sucre, prison break

then there's the cliches, over-emphasis on sex appeal and dialogue which was a bit off... who here thinks that slow-mo part where megatron narrowly grazes the bombshell in a turquoise top was POINTLESS apart from allowing the bit-actress to flash her ample bosom?

the amount of cleavage flashed throughout the show rivals an episode of baywatch.

but still.... I LIKE TRANSFORMERS! for now.
