TRANSFORMERS on IMAX poster.

TODAY... A MUCH BIGGER big-screen reincarnation of Transformers gets released in theaters, and so does Jessica "I’m-so-clumsy-I’m-FREAKIN’-HOT" Alba’s newest film Good Luck Chuck. Speaking of Ms. Alba, I could’ve friggin' met her at San Diego Comic-Con last July!! She showed up unexpectedly to promote Chuck. Son-of-a... French poodle. Ah, screw it—that was lame. BITCH. Anyways, where was I? Oh yea... You can’t accuse me of wasting cash on seeing Transformers in IMAX when I wasted so much money on seeing it multiple times at the regular cineplex throughout the summer. Hah! Can’t wait to see what those two extra minutes in the IMAX version consist of, haha. By the way, I was thinking about showing that poster where an ice cream cone is melting in one of Alba’s hands, but I decided to post this more modest pic instead. Very subtle, eh?

The logo for INDIANA JONES IV.

SO ACCORDING to various online news reports (who in turn got the news from Shia LaBeouf, who will play the archaeologist's sidekick in the upcoming film, at last Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards), that's the new title of the fourth Indy installment. When I first heard about it, I was thinking, "Um, isn't that title a little long?" But then I thought about Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, and thought, "Nope, it's not". It's catchy...and obviously fits in with The Temple of Doom and The Last Crusade. Now hopefully The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull will be just as good as these previous sequels (or at least The Last Crusade. I didn't really like Temple of Doom). We'll see... If Rocky Balboa and Live Free or Die Hard are any indication, there's a good chance Indy IV just might deliver. *Crosses fingers*

Indiana Jones in RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK...the best film in the series.

3:10 TO YUMA... I saw the film this weekend, and all I have to say is...it was good! Russell Crowe as captured outlaw Ben Wade kicks ass!! The last time I rooted for Crowe in a movie was as Maximus in Gladiator. Not to spoil the film or anything, but how interesting that it was he who was the actual hero (or should I say, anti-hero) in the story. Not gonna tell you why that’s the case, since I would have to ruin the ending for ya'll to do so. Christian Bale did a great job, and Ben Foster was a bad-ass as Wade's second cowboy-in-command Charlie Prince. A great villain. Again, not to give anything away, but Charlie is so ruthless that you definitely root for Wade when he and Charlie clash in the climax. I have the sudden urge to watch other Western films now, haha. Still haven’t seen Unforgiven or Tombstone... One more thing: I could’ve SWORN that that was Luke Wilson who was part of the posse overseeing the construction of that railroad... I know it's him. Rhetorical comment.

I also watched Shoot ‘Em Up this weekend. WAAAY over-the-top...unless you think it's possible to easily punch a carrot stick through a guy's throat. The only thing I understood from the story was something about bone marrow and gun control. And I'd hate to be that toddler who was being "protected" by Clive Owen and Monica Bellucci. Is it just me, but Owen might be typecast as the typical anti-hero in an eccentric action film (RE: Sin City)? Paul Giamatti was definitely over the top in this film (obviously intentional... I should compare his performance in this movie to his role in Sideways, haha)...and Ms. (Mrs?) Bellucci, sadly, isn’t being treated that kindly by age. Not to sound like a punk or anything. Or it could possibly be that her role as a hooker was surprisingly not a turn-on in this movie? She was HOT in The Matrix sequels (one of the only reasons why those films are worth watching) and Brotherhood of the Wolf. But Shoot ‘Em Up? I like the constant depiction of breast-sucking throughout the film, though. I’ll end this Blog now.

TRANSFORMERS DVD cover.

TRANSFORMERS: THE DVD... Days after word got out that Steve Jablonsky’s original film score for Transformers will be sold in stores starting October 9, news has been released that the movie itself will be coming out on DVD a week later! Woohoo! Can’t wait... Transformers will be released on standard DVD and HD DVD versions. Those of you who want a Blu-Ray copy of the movie will be left hanging...as Paramount and Microsoft made a deal a few weeks ago to have Paramount movies released exclusively on High Definition for at least the next 18 months. This originally prompted director Michael Bay to get peeved at the "one format only" approach and threaten to walk out on helming Transformers 2, but had a change of heart after watching the movie 300 on HD DVD. Sigh... What a relief. For those of you who want Bay to come back for the sequel, haha.

TRANSFORMERS: ON IMAX... On September 21, the sci-fi blockbuster will be briefly released on 70mm theatrical projection...complete with two extra minutes of new footage! Either it’ll be a prolonged version of Sam and Mikaela making out on top of Bumblebee’s hood, or we’ll finally get to see what happened to Barricade (the Decepticon cop car) towards the end of the film. Like I said... Can’t wait!

Sam and Mikaela make out while, um, Ironhide and Ratchet look on.  And Bumblebee enjoys the ride.

WHERE’S STEVE JABLONSKY?? Part III: In retail stores, that's where he'll be...or at least his film score. About a week ago, word broke out online that the Transformers music score will be released on October 9. FINALLY!! Details can be seen on Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com. Of course, if you want to ensure that Warner Bros. Records doesn't change its mind and delay the score's release (Is that possible? Don't wanna know), you can sign a petition here:

Can't wait till October 9!!
