Friday night I took my 13 year old brother to the movies to see the latest Transformers movie in 3D. I’ve seen a couple of other movies in 3D (Clash of Titans and the latest Harry Potter), but this was actually the first one where I could properly see that it was in 3D.
Because the movie theatre in my small town (read: village out in nowhere) has really bad seats and messes up my back we decided to try a neighbour town’s movie theatre. Turns out it had better seats, but that was about the only thing that was better.
Like all movie theatres they showed trailers before the movie started. Ironically, the first trailer they showed was for… the movie we were going to watch!
Yes, I got to see the trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon about 5 minutes before watching the actual movie. Thank you. That was great.
I quite enjoyed the movie itself. Yes, it’s an action movie about talking robots that turn into cars and other devices – but heck, not every movie has to be logical or deep. Sometimes it’s nice with a good laugh and lots of explosions. Call me shallow, but I like a good action movie!
I must admit though, I think one of the things that I enjoyed the most was the fact that before the movie the theatre put on my current favourite youtube song/movie. It was great to watch it on the big screen with surround sound!
