"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" Rocks!




Official Movie Site: http://www.transformersmovie.com/


I took the kids, and a groups of friends, to see the new Transformers movie, 'Revenge of the Fallen', the day after it opened. The kids all loved it! And it was pretty good -- from a grown-up's perspective. It was a bit lacking in plot, but the amazing action sequences more than made up for the weak plot. The things that these animators can do with CG nowadays is truly amazing. It was entertaining, to say the least. I like the attempts at humor (i.e., little RC truck destruction and the former sector 7 lead agent) too.

Here's what the critics say -- overall, not impressed, but what do they know. The box office says otherwise.

I liked the end too, when the Navy ship shoots an electromagnetic railgun projectile to wipe out the Destroyer off the top of the Big Giza pyramid. I  worked as a research assistant, for a PhD candidate, on a railgun project in college. So it was neat to see that in a movie and tell the kids: "Hey, mommy worked on that in college."

P.S. Hey, Mark! Saw, through IEEE papers, that you went back to finish up your Ph.D.. That's awesome. Best of luck -- not that you need it! How's Byron doing? Dave? Hi to Dorene and the kids. God Bless!
