arccie: 12kingdoms break (babysitting)
Fantastic 4:Rise of the Silver Surfer
Rather questionable spoilers...

Finally went and saw the movie today with [livejournal.com profile] julzbat.
A LOT better than I expected after hearing the reviews.
Having only seen the first movie for the first time a couple of weeks ago, I was fairly fresh on my take and would even lean towards the 2nd movie being better.
They both have their weaknesses in terms of canon-ness, but I felt the romance in the first movie really overtook the actual plot (which is a pet hat romantic sub-plot is not supposed to be THE plot of the movie), while in the 2nd movie, because it's an established relationship...although it has it's quirks and screen time it's not the in your face eye-gazing.
Would have loved for more "extraordinary powers" screentime, but what they had worked.
Overall pretty good acting, and character interactions. PLus it's nice to see our long term supervillains can focus more than on their own desires for world domination when there is about to be NO world...NOT (and the USA government/military was once again shown in a somehwat negative light).

Mmmm...also managed to get the delicious vegetable pie that's always sold out (first time I've had it in almost 2 years, darn it's delicious)

NB...do you know that lj works a whole lot better when you remember to press the POST button at the bottom of the screen *shakes head at own stupidity*

Soo...I went and saw the Transformers movie today with a uni friend.
As per my normal routine I was almost late and was speeding along never before travelled roads in pouring rain...FUN!
The movie was actually a lot of fun and a great watch.
♥ Bumblebee (though I prefer him when he's googly-eyed and not talking)
The 2 main male characters were quite a lot of fun, though Sam required about 30minutes to be really cool and interesting. The main female character was also very fun, especially as when she first appeared on the scene my immediate thought was "Oh no! Not another useless romantic interest." But she came through and was her own kind of kick ass.

For the actual plot...well it was non-stop action and some great humour. Not the most indepth plot of course, and they didn't even bother to try and cover the entirety of transformers history (or so my Transformer-fanatic friend tells me). He also mentioned that they totally ruined some of the "truths of transformers". But yeah, a good movie in and of itself, though it will probably be getting the hard-core Transformer fans a bit riled.

Oh and they seem to have ruled out the possibilty of a sequel (whether that's a good or bad point is up to you I suppose)

...so how's that for a thumbs up or thumbs down [livejournal.com profile] julzbat?
