I <3 Transformers

I’ve been waiting to see this since I nearly peed my pants watching the trailer about 9 months ago.  And I’m going tonight.  I’ve been a little worried though after reading some of the reviews of the movie (notably the one on nytimes.com).  Sure, sure Bay loves to merchandise, sell out and blow up some stuff with the support and permission of the US Army.  But honestly, who in his position wouldn’t use transformers to blow up some tanks and artillery (even if you can make it look just as good with CGX)?

That’s all until I read the most amazing movie review ever on io9.com (part of Gawker media group).

So, to sum up: Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen is one of the greatest achievements in the history of cinema, if not the greatest. You could easily argue that cinema, as an artform, has all been leading up to this. It will destabilize your limbic system, probably forever, and make you doubt the solidity of your surroundings. Generations of auteurs have struggled, in vain, to create a cinematic experience as overwhelming, and as liberating, as ROTF. [emphasis is mine]

AWESOME.
