Transformers

Posted in play by Greg on the June 27th, 2007

Having watched transformers as a wee lad, I’ve been looking forward to the new transformers movie ever since I first got wind of it. Yesterday I bought my advance tickets for next Monday’s sneak preview. I’m trying hard not to get my hopes up, nor to set my expectations to high, but it isn’t working. If the movie is bad, I’ll probably be devastated. It’s funny how we can have so much nostalgia for something from childhood, even when it isn’t that great from an adult perspective. I acquired every episode of the transformers cartoon a couple years ago, but I’ve only watched a handful of them since then. I tried, but it just wasn’t that great. I preferred to stop watching and preserve the memory of it being awesome. But now, with a new live action movie coming out, I have a chance to be entertained by transformers as an adult. Here’s hoping that it will be great :)

This is a screenshot from Forza 2, a racing game on the 360. I will not reveal how many hours it took me to create the Decepticon logo on that Supra using the in-game editor (you would laugh at me). Suffice it to say, that I had to combine 30 plus polygons to construct it.

    Getting your hopes up for a movie is the make or break factor hands down. I’ll give you a couple of good examples of why: I saw the matrix in the theatre when I was about 18 (yes, thank you, I’m old). Having seen the preview for this movie with all the unrealistic floating in the air and dodging bullets, not to mention Keanu Reeves’ long list of terrible movies, I was quite certain the only enjoyment I would get from this movie was laughing at Mr. Reeves and his acting ineptitude. Needless to say my expectations were low. When the movie turned out to be very well thought out and completely engaging, with plausible, albeit sci-fi, explanations for all the crazy stuff that we were seeing on screen, it became the best movie of the year.

    So then I became a big Pirates of the Caribbean fan and when the second one was release we were there on opening day full of expectations for the return of Captain Jack. I was let down, there was less fun, less goofy Jack sayings, less of what I’d pictured in my head. I saw it 6 month later when it came out on DVD and loved it then because my expectations were more realistic.

    You are doomed Greg.

    hmm….

    I think it’ll probably be somewhere between ‘awesome’ and ‘Pirates: II’.

    But I’ll look forward to your review/recommendation. :)

    As for the car…. that is SWEET.

    I am SO wanting an Xbox, but it’s not in the cards for a bit here…. a few more things that are important before that. Ugh. Me want one.

    Yeah, I’m really looking forward to Transformers as well, and I share your hesitation. Last summer, I went to see the original Transformers movie (the one with the ridiculous soundtrack where Optimus Prime dies) at the Music Box. Much to my muted dismay, it was horrendously bad. Kind of like when I watched a few Thundercats episodes two years ago. It’s a sort of stripping away of ones immaculately preserved childhood memories or something. Kinda depressing. But anyway….

    I have tickets for the Monday show as well. Can’t wait to hear what you have to say about it. Post a review on the NAB, will you?

    Oh my, that movie is bad. Though it is bad enough to be good….

    I’ll be sure to put my thoughts about the new movie up. I’ve read one review so far, and it was encouraging. Here is an excerpt: “it’s not a mere blockbuster, it’s a two and a half hour atomic bomb… strapped to a roller-coaster… filled with snakes… on fire!”
