More Than Meets the Eye
DH and I went to see the late show of Transformers last night (no kids, few adults I love late shows.)
It was great! Definitely better than I had expected. Much better than what anyone would expect from a movie based on a 1980's cartoon. They really went out of the way to make the story good aside from the effects. And the effects were amazing!
One thing I noticed right off was the wonderful portrayal of the US Armed Forces. They could have gone with "the entire government is stupid idiots or trigger happy war mongers" but chose instead to show the amazing courage and skill that the soldiers in our military have everyday, and especially when they fight giant alien robot monsters.
