Last night we celebrated my sister’s birthday. It was really good to see her. She’s looking for work and recently had an interview at Harrison in Port Orchard (ah, the irony). We had some good laughs and the kids got to play and hang with her.
We also watched the Transformers sequal which was, in my opinion, not as good as the original movie. Some of the things that really bugged the heck out of me was the immense amount of sexual innuendo. A super robot had balls made of wrecking balls, the hot girl traveled through space time and landed missionary style on top of a guy, the college girls were all perfectly figured and preferred to wear lingerie and mini skirts; it was just too much. There were several massive plot holes, problems, and just general character stupidity. I’d give it 3 out of 5 or 5 out of 10.
I woke this morning feeling almost hung over from all the carbs. The snooze button and my body conspired against me and I ended up driving to work to get here at a reasonable time.
We watched Doomsaday a few days ago and although I found the post apocalyptic theme interesting it was just another almost comedic stroking of the horror junky’s senses. I liked the idea of city people degrading into cannibalistic punks and those in the country regressing into a Scottish keep and living off the land. It seems to agree with the idea that those living in urban ideas have completely lost touch with how to survive. But that’s it. The rest of it is shallow and partly cheesy. I gave this one 2 out of 5 or 3 out of 10.
