We've got tickets for TRANSFORMERS

Going to see it on Wednesday. It will be Lisa, me, and my life-long friend Chad Austin.

When he and I were ten years old we would be up all night during sleepovers fantasizing about what a live-action Transformers movie would be like. Wondering just how could technology of the mid-1980s pull off giant robots morphing into vehicles. I think that just like Star Wars fans spent decades seeing The Duel being fought in their minds before seeing it actually happen in Revenge of the Sith, so have Chad and I had our own "perfect Transformers movie" in our imagination this whole time.

To say that we grew up as die-hard fans of old-school Transformers would be a severe underestimation of things. So this movie has a lot to live up to.

And then there is Lisa, who mostly knows about Transformers from her younger brother. All told, this is going to be a good group... an ideal group even... going in to see this movie.

So how is Transformers the Michael Bay film going to stack up against the Transformers movie cooked up twenty-three years ago by a couple of kids? In two days' time, we shall find out!
