I'm not really that excited about the new Transformers Movie.
Transformers wasn't my generation and I have to agree with Pig, who just said in IM:
Oldspot says: meh, AFBB (Another Fucking Brainless Blockbuster)Sad, but true.
Lactose says: Look at the fuckin robots though dude. Hmmm, shiny...
Oldspot says: Thats what they want you to say, and then queue up and pay you ten quid or whatever, watch it, and then go away disappointed thats its not as good as you thought it was going to be...
...OF COURSE IT ISNT, ITS A FUCKING BLOCKBUSTER, WHOSE SOLE EXISTENCE IS TO STEAL YOUR MONEY. NOT TO ENTERTAIN YOU, NOT TO STIMULATE YOU, JUST TO HAVE ENOUGH CRAP TO STRING TOGETHER INTO A VISCERAL TRAILER TO LURE YOU IN AND TAKE YOUR FUCKING MONEY.
Sorry. Too much coffee...
Still, a Summer block buster can be the thing if you know what your getting into. I can always drool at the toys and at Jennifer Connelly.
Foxy, being the right generation, has been bouncing around for months over this. All giddy and fanbird in a way my generation can never be due to our innate world-weary bitterness. I hope it's every thing she wants, cos she'll sulk like a fucker if it's not.
