Something evil's watching over you...

OPTIPUPPET copy

So, I saw a sneak preview of TRANSFORMERS last night.
I'm not sure if I want to write any kind of review, but I wanted to at least mention that I've seen it.

And I have opinions.

UPDATE
Speaking of movies, Robert of Ye Olde Comic Blogge has a great new post up about comics and movies and the state of both.
You should read it.

and those opinions would be?

i'm extremely interested in this movie, in that i'm excited to see transformers in live action, though i'm not that excited about how they look, what with all the moving, jagged, bulky parts (it just seems confusing).

also, i hate michael bay's style of directing, which is, from what i can tell, to take a story that could potentially be cool, and ruin it by throwing millions and millions of dollars in special effects at it (which are, admittedly, pretty spectacular), shoe-horn in some sort of love story (even when it doesn't work) and plop it on the screen, rejecting any idea of character development whatsoever.

are my fears valid, or will i enjoy the ride?

I think all of your fears are very valid.
I also think you will enjoy the ride.
I also think I will do a write up of my thoughts on the flick.

well, if i can go in and enjoy myself, even while still nitpicking things, then i guess it'll be okay.

and i'll read your review after i see it this wednesday.

you've already seen it!?!!!!???

I'm on pins and needles. I'll probably be going on Tuesday night...I believe it opens on Tuesday. Wanna go?

chrishaley said...

I have indeed already seen it. Bwah-ha-ha! I can feel your jealousy seething through the computer.
It does indeed open on Tuesday (I just checked the Malco site) and I'd be up for catching it with you... as long as it's after 4:30.
Cool?

I'm sure it will be a 7-something or 8-ish show. I'll know tomorrow afternoon. I'll call you and let you know.

Sounds good to me!
