Things that were important to me while growing up were school, cartoons and playing outdoors. Growing up in the 80’s was a real treat for a kid, Voltes V, Sesame Street, Carebears, Transformers and GIJoe were the staple of my life. I was even a member of Uncle BoB’s Lucky 7 Club at GMA 7.
When movie companies started making live action movies of my childhood cartoons I was really excited but somewhat concerned, could they live up to the original? Would it be just a waste to time to go and watch?
Did you know that I watched Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen alone? Why?
Well first, I had this free time and there was no one else to go with. The pull of the movie is so strong, watching transformers is a must for me for I grew up with them, played with transformer toys.
Watching the movie is like paying a visit to a very dear friend, the movie did not disappoint seeing bumblebee(my fave) and the other autobots and decepticons and hearing Optimus Prime (dubbed by Peter Cullen) brought me back to my childhood. The movie was fast paced and had yummy human character like Josh Duhamel (plays Major William Lennox) I was satisfied. The action scenes were great you can really see hardware getting loose from the robots as they engage in combat. It felt like being in the middle to the battle or your watching a great fireworks display.
Well for the kid in me my rate 4 out of 5 popcorn!
