Was invited to a preview of the show by MediaCorp @ GV Marina and I brought Shuyun along since I had an extra ticket. However! The movie was interrupted and could not resume due to (and I quote), “…technical difficulties..” so we were told to go out and get our complimentary tickets. A few things got me a little irritated. Firstly, the announcements was poorly made and incoherent. You would think that they will have a standard script for this kind of situation. Pfft. Secondly, when we went out to collect our tickets, the person handling out the tickets did not apologised and looked downright pissed. Thirdly, no representative from MediaCorp was there to apologise. I mean, not their fault but you invited us so as the “host” you could have at least sent your representative to apologise. BAA! Whatever!
ANYWAYS! Luckily Shuyun was “on” enough and we decided to cabbed down to The Cathay to catch the 10.30pm show! (: I have to say, the both of us were more excited than we were the first time round!
SO! The graphics are still FANTABULOUS! The transformations of the robots are still pretty amazing. The cars are OH-SO-SEXY! And Bumblebee is still so darn cute and hot!
Storyline was not so fantabulous though. The whole “He-died-and-talked-to-the-ancestors” part was kind of “WHAT?!” but I guess it was the only way to end the movie. I have to say, the storyline was kind of expected. Basically, it’s really literally just “Revenge of the Fallen”. The usual works of fallen trying to get back, good guys try to stop them and BLAH BLAH. BUT! No worries! Remember how it was kind of emotional and sad when Bumblebee (or one of the good guys) died/almost died in the first movie? Well! There’s a few of that in this movie! I went “Awwww” and “Ohno!” quite a bit. Especially when Optimus Prime died. Oh, come on! If you are following me on Twitter/Plurk, you would have already known!
I have to say! When Bumblebee came out, I was like, “Bumblebee Bumblebee!” He is still my favorite! The scene in the garage with Sam was quite funny!
Some quotable quotes from the movie –
what you are abt to see is top secret. do not tell my mother!”
what if we leave, and you’re wrong?
AND! Some random stuff that I noticed during the movie –
- Robots can smell?!
- Cool shit! The robot is 1D so that it’s hard to shoot him!
- OHHH MY EYES! I did not need to see the butt and the crack!
- HEY! That’s the little person from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory!
- OHHHH! That robot haz balls! And they swing!
- Hmm! That’s an LG phone and not an iPhone. No apple products !
- They are in the middle of the dessert, where in the world did they get the bandage?
- AND! When, how and where did they get the change of clothes?! Megan Fox changed from heels to boots! HMM!
All in all! A pretty good movie to watch! Not as nice as Transformers 1 but STILL a good movie to watch! A must-watch for this season of movies(:
Tip: If you have short attention span like me and Shuyun, please bring along your 3G phone. The movie is not boring but having a 3G phone helps. A little plurk break can help you concentrate better. Trust me!
