OK. I’m going to get crucified for this, but I’m watching Transformers right now, and I can barely stand it. It is soooooo cheesy. I’ve seen the cheese factor at least a dozen times, and in the last scene there were at least 3-4; Bumblebee “lubricating” on a guy. The “hot” girl telling the secret agent to undress, and he’s got some crazy superman tank top on and printed boxers. I mean, come on… I watched Transformers as a kid and this is such a let down. The scene where the parent catch the kid upstairs and all the Autobots are hiding outside – cheese! “Sector 7”? Get real…
And the soundtrack? wow, not even close! It’s all soundscapish and LOTR style… for Transformers? Come ON!
Maybe I’m just numb to CGI, but other than that, what a let down. Maybe it’s one of those movies that everyone builds up so much hype around, then you watch it and it’s nowhere near what you thought it would be.
Cheese factor quotes: (as I’m watching the movie, I’ve already missed like 50)
“I bought a car, turned out to be an alien robot”
“Freedom is the right of all sentium beings”
“Autobots roll out!”
“Oh and her juvie record, that’s gotta be gone forever”
“We call him NBE One, that’s what we call it”
“All hail Megatron”
“Freddy Kruger had four blades, that’s Wolverine baby!”
I’m losing interest… Rich Kirkpatrick just IM’d me, later…
