based on the action figures

I recently decided to watch Transformers after everyone I know that had seen it said it was so good! One of my roommates bought it so I watched it. For being based on a kids' toy, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The language was very minimal, there was no sex (although there was a very funny line about it that I'll get to in a minute) and the viloence was all between robots. So there was no blood, only lubrication. So the funny line (not that there was just one... Shia LaBeouf knows how to make an audience laugh)... one of the autobots says to the head autobot, "The boy's pheromone levels suggest he wants to mate with the female." I about lost it! It's probably a lot funnier in context of the movie, but wow! I had a good belly laugh :) And one of the best part of the movie is when one of the autobots... well, here's the conversation...

Autobot: You have a rodent infestation.
Sam: A what?
Autobot: (aiming at "rodent") Shall I terminate?
Sam: No! No! This is a chihuahua. We love chihuahuas.
Autobot: He's leaked lubricants all over my foot! Hmmph!
Sam: He peed on you? Bad Mojo! Bad!
Autobot: Bad Mojo! Ugh, my foot's gonna rust...

A chihuahua as a rodent makes me so happy! I'm pretty sure they're more closely related to rodents than dogs...

Anyway... it's a very good movie. I highly recommend it if you ever get the chance to watch it. The acting is very good. The direction is great. And the special effects are awesome!

I guess I need to see it... I'm glad they refer to chiuaua's (however on earth you spell that) at rodents!

Do you remember the transformers bed tent we had?!?

Of course I remember it! But I was partial to the pink princess one :)
