Where in the World is WTF Duck?

Has it been two years already?

I know a lot of people that have been really excited about Transformers 2. My life is melting into the Twilight Zone.

Lots of good posts lately, Will! Keep it up!

I know where he is, but I'm not going to go get him.

I didn't see the first Transformers movie, and I probably won't see this one either. I was never a big Transformers fan.

A.M.Bush said...

yea, i won't be watching that movie

esahC said...

Yep, it has.

Will, I'll give you 50 bucks if the duck didn't like the movie. Wanna take the bet?

Will Finn said...

No takers here. As of Sunday night the duck is still in the theater. : o )

The only two films I want to see this summer are The Hurt Locker and Public Enemies. Maybe Inglorious Basterds but IDK, I really can't stand Quintet Tarantino.

THAT'S how I felt!! Unfortunately, my penis lead me into the theatre, and he's pretty stubborn.

The film was unnecessarily long, which is to say, it exceeded thirty minutes. The funny thing is, both the Autobots and the Decepticons had two supreme creatures ( Optimus and some other long lost toy design who outranks Megatron ) who had to take chunks of other electrical and mechanical machinery to make themselves bigger so they could fight. It didn't matter if what they picked up looked like it would fit, in a few seconds, it magically stuck to their body and they kept getting bigger.

The reason I say this is funny is because I felt watching this, when I wasn't watching my date's nice legs, that this method of compiling large chunks of nothing and adding it to the bigger something was merely the technique employed by the screenwriters under the producer's influence. There were plot holes bigger than the ones in CASABLANCA, and leaps of faith bigger than the ones in SOME LIKE IT HOT. Both the movies I just mentioned have wonderful acting, good dialogue and memorable performances but there was nothing to fall back on in the case of the new Transformers movie. Everything was overwrought with decadence, shaky camera effects and hack acting.

That's how disinterested I was: it's 'the new Transformers movie' to me. I don't ( and didn't ) even know the proper name of the movie and couldn't be bothered to look it up.

Great cartoon, Will! The drawing's funny too!

- trevor.

I just back from HURT LOCKER, it's a very intense and interesting. This isn't just another war movie, it's tense but there are no big over blown action sequences.
