|05.24.06||Alamo Village|| I seriously remember almost nothing about the story behind the transformers... autobots vs. decepticons. after that, all I remember is which toys I had... so When given the chance to see the movie projected at an Alamo and knowing that Michael Bay's shooting the film right now, I couldn't pass it up.|
So... this film is pretty crappy. I remember it being good... compared to the G.I. Joe movie and the He-Man live action miscarriage of a movie, I remember this one being really good. Granted Orson Welles as the voice of Unicron the planet-eating mech is awesome... but the weird al yankovic song not so much. It's actually the constant bed of background 80s rock that bugs me most about the movie... the story's actually pretty decent and it gets double extra points for killing characters off. No parachutes floating from every blown up G.I. Joe jet here, man... robots DIE. Sure it feels more like a gimmick to introduce celebrity voices than anything else but still... Optimus Prime and Megatron throw down... and thanks to boogie nights i have the song they throw down to memorized ("you got the touch!"). Actually you know it wasn't that bad... I was definitely ready for it to be over when it ended though... that non-stop barrage of robot fighting and heavy metal is better suited to kids I guess.
