TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE... Tomorrow night, Michael Bay’s long-awaited take on the old cartoon that spawned lots of kick-ass toys back in my childhood days gets released in theaters. Hopefully, it’ll be good...from what I’ve seen in the trailers and TV spots. Then again, I saw the first Bad Boys film, The Rock, Armageddon and Pearl Harbor at the cineplex (plus, um, bought The Island on DVD...but it was on discount since I purchased it from the studio store back when I worked at the Paramount lot, which owns the movie as Paramount is part of Dreamworks. Dreamworks produced the film), so who am I kidding? Michael Bay flicks are like MySpace, caffeine, junk food, and—if you’re a druggie (which I am not. Pretend I didn’t use this last analogy)—crack... You know they’re bad for you...but you keep coming back for more.
Anyways, I’ll probably watch the movie on Tuesday...since I only want to associate my midnight screening experiences with Star Wars (I, uh, watched The Phantom Menace with some college dorm buddies at midnight back in ’99—but it wasn’t on opening night, thank God—and Revenge of the Sith with some old high school friends on opening night two years ago), haha. Speaking of Star Wars... George Lucas' Industrial Light and Magic did the visual FX for Transformers...so all the robots should look bad-ass on the big screen. I mean—REALLY bad-ass. Just look at these screenshots I posted with this journal entry! That is all.
