We went to see Transformers, Revenge of the Fallen tonight. With this type of movie I always have to work overtime at suspending disbelief, but I got into it. The names of the Transformers were familiar because we've read the books so many times. The action never stopped. There's humor and excellent cinemetography; the special effects are awesome, and the sound--wowza.
Elijah was in seventh heaven, of course. He's been looking forward to this release. He just got the poster today, and tomorrow it's getting framed and going up over his headboard in his freshly painted room.
Great action flick, but I was a little disappointed in blatant sexual references and the over-the-top sexy way the young women are portrayed. There is some offensive language, as well. The movie would have been as good or better without those factors. There were, of course, a lot of children in the theater.
I have a feeling it's a major movie weekend, so hang on for more.
