Amy and I went to see Transformers 2 last night at the dollar movie. Going to the movies is one of our favorite date nights but this one was a doosey.
First, the movie was just eye candy. No acting. Overreaching. And after they make about 5 of these films, this one is going to be forgotten quickly. And yes – mark my words. They will milk this franchise for every dollar they can. I’m guessing 5 movies. Who knows, they may even try to get 6. Each will be more ridiculous than the one before. You can see it coming.
Couple of funny lines, about 30 minutes to long. But the movie theater was packed. We had driven around Topeka for a bit that night and it felt like a ghost town. Discovered that everyone goes to the movies.
Second – and what was really disturbing was this – I was shocked at how many kids were at the movie. Like baby carriers, 5 to 9 year olds. It was crazy. Then the guy in front of us started snoring in the middle of the movie. We just started laughing at the whole scene – packed theater, full of kids, guy snoring…it was quite humorous. Almost more so than the actually movie.
