I was a dweeb

Back in the 80s when Transformers were a big deal, and I had no real interest in seeing the movie. But Tommy insisted, saying "Mum, you'll love it! It's wall to wall cheese!"

So I did, last night. And he was right. It was lots of fun.


It's the first CGI movie that I've been able to be completely 'unaware' of the CGI-ness. I actually followed the story rather than finding the movement of the critters to be slightly off. I suspect this is because the critters are robots and they don't have skin and hair that moves a certain way when a foot falls - that is so obvious if it isn't perfect in CGI. So that was cool.

However - the robots claimed that they learned English off the internet. If that were really the case, the script would've gone more like this:

Optimus Prime: AUTOBOTZ FTW!
Megatron: OMGWTF FUK OFF NOOB!
Bumblebee: O RLY YI GET DIS DUM NAME???????!!!one
Scorponok: OK MINE IS SOOOO WORSE LOL!
Jazz: GIMME KYOOB NOW KTHXBYE!
Starscream: I CAN HAS JET PLAIN
Optimus Prime: O FFS ur all a bunch of n00bs I go hang with the peeps now
Bumblebee: OK SUMWUN TEL ME HOW I CHANGE MI NAME?

*cough*

Also, every time the leader of the Decepticons was mentioned, I kept expecting them to break into Southside hip hop. But that probably didn't happen to most people who watched it, eh?

It was fun. I'd recommend it for a laugh. However, don't be surprised if I start making references to 'happy time' now. ;-)


Today has been all about climbing trees and chopping down branches. I can now see more than leaves out my bedroom window, and there's sun on the back of the house. I figured out why my room leaks - there are two tiles out of place just above my window, and there's a gap. Unfortunately, while I could see it from the tree I was in, I couldn't reach it. And because of the 20 foot drop onto steep concrete stairs below, I think it's a job for the professionals.

My vote goes for a new, tile free roof. They seem to move a lot, and then the house leaks. I don't like drips from the ceiling.

Also, one of my fake horses won a fake race. I made a fake $150,000. Progress!
