So although a lot of people have already seen it, Tomorrow I go and see Transformers 3 in theatres. I am really excited as transformers was and still remains one of my favorite franchises of all time.
I loved the cartoon as a kid, watched almost all of the spin offs (beast wars) so when i found out that Michael Bay was relaunching the franchise in 2007 I was pumped! and quite frankly he did not disappoint. Transformers was a great film. the explosions were awesome. the story was awesome. and the robots were awesome!. So when the second one was announced my first thought was AWESOME!
Don’t get me wrong. I enjoyed Giant Robots from outer space (Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen) as a movie about well giant Robots from outer space, but as a Transformers film I was disappointed. it didn’t focus on the Transformers (ya know… the movie isn’t called “Shia Lebeouf and Megan Fox in: My Boyfriend and his crazy robot friends’)
But more about my disappointment. Due to A lack of funds (broke student) and not a lot of time due to work (weird how I’m still broke) I have not gotten to see as many movies this summer as I would have liked. But out of the movies I have seen so far I can say the only one to NOT disappoint me was Super 8. Green lantern a movie I’ve been waiting my life to see left me walking out of the theatre ashamed to be wearing a green lantern T-shirt.
So as I enter transformers tomorrow night. I enter with high hopes and a barely mended heart. If Michael bay adds Transformers to the list of things that have disappointed me this summer I don’t know how I will ever be excited for a movie again. that being said It could be awesome! and I hope it is! I purposely have not been reading reviews because I don’t want to form an opinion before I see it.
All i know is Michael Bay has some faith to restore. hopefully he is up to the task.
