More Than Meets The Eye

Lucky me, I got to see an advanced screening of Transformers.

It's the summer movie to beat. I don't want to ruin it for you, but it has a wonderful way of melding the best of American genres. The teen film, the car film, the monster film, the horror film, the action film, the romantic comedy -all in ways that are unexpected and welcome. The result is hilarious and it carries the film, supporting the intense action scenes. This is a film to see in a cinema with lots of people, the reactions are as priceless as the jokes. It set a new benchmark for effects that will undoubtedly be noticed come Oscar time.

I'm actually going to see it twice in the theater. That's the biggest compliment I can offer.
