Transformers!

When I was little, I really had the best of both worlds. I lived in this awesome apartment complex and there was a group of us (it varied between 6-10 kids, depending upon who was there and who had moved on) that would play together every day. The boys were always willing to play house with us and us girls were always willing to get down and dirty and play our made up game Navy Seals.

The boys got me hooked on these fun little toys called Transformers. My favorite was Bumblebee and my all-time favorite was, of course, Optimus Prime. I had a few of my own, but I had always wanted my very own Optimus. Naturally, he was way too expensive for my mom (who was single at the time) to buy for me.

When I heard they were making the transformers movie, I was so excited! Then I heard that they were making Bumblebee into a freaking Camero and I was PISSED! I hate when these things are remade and don't stick to the authentic version! I was going to boycott it out of respect for the cartoons.

Then I saw the previews during the trailers before the Pirates movie, and I decided there was no way I was missing that thing! I was still mad that they'd changed my favorite character, but the effects looked too good to miss.

Yesterday, after much begging and pleading that the movie would be cheapened if we didn't get to see it on the big screen and watching the how it was made little things on TV, CB finally concurred that we needed to go see the movie.

Let me tell you, I am totally over them changing Bumblebee. Because that car was AWESOME! And Bumblebee was still awesome.

Seriously, if you can, you HAVE to get to that movie in the theaters! When it was over, I wanted to sit through it again. The effects are insane, the storyline is awesome, Josh Duhamel is drool-worthy as usual and the cars are INSANE! Also, did I mention that the effects are awesome?

Anyway, enough about that. I haven't talked about this yet, but I'll be doing an interview with Mr. Fab himself on Sunday August 12th. I'll give you more details as it gets closer, but mark your calendars so you can listen in and call in with questions. Don't leave me hanging there all by myself!!! :)

*sigh* I missed it in the theaters. It costs way too much money for the whole family to go.
BUT I'll snag it when it comes out on video. I REALLY want to see it.

It does look awesome. My husband was all excited about it too because those were some of his favourite toys as a kid, too. Even though I only know who and what "Optimus Prime" is and that the "Deceptacons" were the bad guys way back when, I'm interested in seeing it too! I'm always up for a good action flick.

OMG!! OMG!! OMG!!! (I found you here via MisstressM, btw)

You have my complete and utter attention because you are talking about the movie that I'm totally in love with and addicted to!

I've seen it THREE times now and I'm going to see at least 2 more times before it leaves the theatre.

And of course, you ROCK!!! because you love Bumblebee and Optimus Prime, the two most kickin Autobots in the world!! :)

I've got two posts on the movie that I think you'll like. The second post, especially because it has some GREAT pics of the cars.
