A Day Earlier Than Most


July 3rd. Mark it down. The day that mi familia went to see Transformers. This means that I saw it a full day before some of my Blog counterparts. I'm not saying that makes me better or anything. It's just one of many things that makes me better. I can prove my claim too. While sitting in the theater waiting for the movie to start and perusing the crowd I sent the following text message to Q at 8:19 PM July 3rd: "Hot girls don't go to see Transformers". His response dated 8:20 PM July 3rd: "Hahahahahahaha. No shit! Nerdy guys do". So there it is Gyuss. 2nd place again.


Anyway on to the review. Pretty good. Not as good as the live action Transformers movie I made with my friend 's video camera when I was 11, but whatever. Maybe they didn't have my budget for black cat firecrackers. My daughter spent the entire time pointing out everybody in the movie that has also been on a Disney Channel show. There were four of them by her count. Shia LeBeouf was terrific in Even Stephens, awesome in Holes, outstanding in Charlie's Angels 2, and pretty good in this. He's a disarmingly funny actor.


In fact it's good enough that I might say this is the best Tyrese movie ever. I know that others will argue that 2 Fast 2 Furious was good 2, but I disagree.


Megan Fox is awfully pretty in this flick and so is Rachael Taylor as the really hot Australian that works for the U.S. Department of Defense. As if we'd ever let an Aussie inside our inner defenses. Those people were sent there because they're criminals. We're not that dumb.


So anyway where was I.....Oh yeah, Anthony Anderson looked good too, but I didn't like the Portis jersey he was sporting the whole time. That's going to date this movie pretty quickly. Ummmmm.....Jon Voight looked kinda good I guess. Man I need to kick this up a notch


Oh got it!!! SPOILER ALERT!!!!!


The cars turn into robots, and apparently don't think to much of humans.


So that's an A-. I guess.

I have sense gained a little more information about the demographic that went and saw Transformers that same night, and I am going to have to rescend my above statement.

Dagromm said...

Q - I think it was an "in general" statement, not an entirely inclusive statement so I think it's ok to stick with.

Tera said...

I just can't wait to see Tyrese in that movie! I might have to bring extra panties along! ;)

Gyuss Baaltar said...

I was gonna brag that I saw the movie cheaper than you did, then I realized how high ticket prices are here in Gyuss town and cried.

Dagromm said...

Tera - I always keep some with me just in case.

Gyuss - Well considering I paid for four people plus popcorn and drinks you probably did.

I want to receive random Quad text messages. Is there a service I can sign up for for the low price of 5.99 monthly???!

Susan - They come with pictures. Send any one of us the number and you will probably get lots of messages you wish you hadn't. The Crotch Wizards love texting.

We saw this last night. I thought it was a great movie. Very entertaining, which is truly all I want in a movie...probably why I will often pick action movies over true chick-flicks.

Random texts with pics, huh? I may need some amusing surprises over the next month or so...

Churlita said...

My girls and I might see it for my birthday next week. Are there lots of explosions? That would really get me there.

Dagromm said...

Heather - Go see it. It was the most enjoyable movie I've seen this summer.

Woo - Trust me they are random, both the messages and the pics.

Churlita - There are some good explosions. Not Black Cat firecracker good, but you know.

Nina said...

I can hardly remeber the transformers from when I was little...I don't think I'll be seeing the movie. I believe you that it's good though!

Dagromm said...

Nina - I weep for you and the shallow shell of a life that you will have without the Transformers in it.

I want to see this movie all because of your A- rating.
