I can haz Bumblebee pls? kthxbai

We went and saw the Transformers movie on Monday.  I had been delaying seeing it because I was rather concerned about it.  They put flames on Optimus Prime.  FLAMES!  Do you understand how *wrong* that is?  Wrong.  Just wrong.

But the movie itself was pretty good.  Nothing deep (hello, it is Transformers, a TV cartoon created specifically to sell toys), but a good fun action movie.  That grabs hold and just keeps going.  The computer animation of the robots was amazing.  There were a number of cute little bits too.  I particularly liked the bit aboard Air Force One.  But I promise no spoilers in my movie reviews, so you'll just have to watch it to see it.  Really neat well done fight scenes.  
 
And I want my own Bumblebee.  Please?  I'll be good, I promise!  Just because it's a concept car with a half million dollar price tag and only four have been made doesn't make it that unreasonable, does it?  Brian should be able to work by the end of the year, so if I start saving now I should be able to afford it in mumbly years if we live on his salary... Please?  Mine?  I'll just have to get the black stripes painted on it again though.   Bumblebee without stripes doesn't work.


P.S. If you've never seen LOLCATS, the title won't make any sense.  And that's okay.  Those who get it will grin.

Heh. I've been doing the "I can haz" thing around here for a few weeks; thankfully DH thinks it's cute.

I mostly liked Transformers except for the directing in some of the fight scenes. Can the camera please stay still for just a few seconds? Please? kthxbai

Given that I introduced you to lolcatz, I should hope I can tolerate it :)
