Live (inside the movie theater) Review: Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen

The following is a combination of posts I made yesterday to my blog:

• This is my live text blog from the 4:30 EST premeir of Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen. My next few posts will be coming straight from the movie theater ... during the movie. I'm in the back row with my son with tap sounds on mute ... No one near us so I doubt I'm bothering anybody.

• My son & I found a nickel in one of the video games in the lobby before we came in. He says to tell my "website weeders" hello.

• I saw the previews for the new M Night movie and GI Joe - both look good

• Wow ... on the effects in the first 5 minutes. I love Optimus Prime's voice. He's so cool.

• Four 4 letter words in the 1st 10 minutes ... I thought this was a kids movie???? ( A lot of sexual innuendo too! )

• SoundWave (my favorite transformer as a kid) is still my favorite - he's now a telecommunications satellite instead of a cassette player ... I think in the new cartoon series he's an SUV with tricked out speakers

• Noticed a Cloverfield poster in a dorm room ... Had a "metoo moment"

• Interesting Terminator 3 twist

• Taking a bathroom break ... I'd be ashamed if I were GM ... Most of the Autobots talk stupid (all cars are GM & GM co-sponsors)

• Deep Roy is in this and Bushemi is doing a voice ... Are they in more movies than Samuel Jackson?

• The Transformer "Devastator" may be the greatest special effect ever produced

• I love how movies like this wreck the wonders of the world

• I guess I shoulda done this by Twitter ... but I hate Twitter

• Well ... Movie's over ... Liveblogging experiment accomplished ... I just like trying new things every now and then ... I wanted to see this movie, but my son REALLY wanted to see it ... His birthday is tomorrow. One of the reasons this "blogging from the theater" was so easy is because he's so well behaved. I can't say that for other kids that were there (same age, younger, and older) Going to movies nowadays is an almost miserable experience. It's one of the reasons I don't do premeire movie reviews any more ... a lot of my reviews come weeks later when theaters aren't crowded or months later when I can watch it on DVD. More tomorrow ... I'll combine all of these posts and give a more thorough review.
