lonegamer78: (Transformers Movie Optimus)
Saw it at the Arclight Hollywood with Jim Sorenson, Marty Isenberg, and Bill Forster on the 23rd. Bonus on that was seeing Optimus, Ironhide, and Bumblebee in the car forms again - additional bonus was the Corvette Centennial Concept that is Sideswipe. :D Shiny and gorgeous piece of metal, though I'd be loathe to even drive him. Inside the lobby were two display cases: two mannequins displaying the combat uniform worn by NEST members with the patches "If I told you, I will have to kill you" (will have to check). XD Another pair of mannequins were that of Leo Spitz's "The Real Effing Deal" green jacket and Mikaela's black jacket over white shirt she wears at one point. Saw ROTF again at Universal Citywalk's IMAX theater (and multiple times in the future).

Gonna need eyedrops! Don't wanna miss anything! )

Was I expecting something like The Godfather or Seven Samurai? No. Was I expecting something like Batman: The Dark Knight or The Green Mile? No! Was I expecting to be entertained by explosions galore, giant alien robots beating other giant alien robots, humans interacting and adding in their own way, Optimus being a serious badaft while kicking major Decepticon butt, plot and inconsistencies be damned?


Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen will certainly have its low points, but if you're a fan that wants a form of escapism, spend all that time in the theaters. Preferably IMAX. ;D

In short, reviews from critics like Ebert and others... Well, I'll leave it to the audience to really decide.

...nets a 9 out of 10 from me. Why?


TF pun aside... =P

I am LOVING what Hans Zimmer and Steve Jablonsky has cranked out, especially when several cues from the first film's score were integrated with ROTF's score. :D  Namely tracks 10, 13, ESPECIALLY 12 and 14. *bounces in music glee* Gorgeous stuff and a crowning jewel is the solo female singing portions, especially during "Infinite White". Of course, can't deny the wonderful choral lines as well. :) "NEST" integrates instrumental portions of Linkin Park's "New Divide", which I find a nice touch for an action sequence.

Who says TF can't have gorgeous orchestral music?! Praise Primus and other The Powers That Be!
