Just for the record here.

If one more person asks me if I’ve gone to see Transformers yet, they’re going to see a transformation more appropriate to Bruce Banner than any giant robot.

Yes, I’m an animation fan.

Yes, I like some anime.

However

I hate giant mecha anime, with the partial exception of “Big O”.

It’s a Michael Bay movie. The only reason Michael Bay isn’t the worst director in the world is because Uwe Boll is still breathing.

I’m not going to see it, I don’t care about it, I don’t even want to hear about it anymore.

Now, in other movie news, I’m going to try to see OotP when it opens today. But if it doesn’t have “It unscrews the other way”, it loses.

    I might see transformers..but I’m certainly not watching it in theatres. I’ll borrow the dvd from a friend when it’s released or something. And unless someone takes me to the movies or it gets fantastic reviews I’m not seeing OotP either..I was rather disappointed with the last harry potter movie…it just wasn’t as ..FUN.

      I’ve been generally disappointed with the HP movies. They’re poor adaptations, imo. Often, they seem to require too much knowledge of the books already.

      • I thought they were okay, by and large. The problem is that from GoF onward, they really needed to be two-parters, not squeezed into one long movie that’s short on content.

    • It’s getting less than glowing reviews — most, predictably, on the theme of “Where has the magic gone?” I’ll go see it anyway.
