Since my cable provider was ill-equipped to deal with someone plowing down a main line, I spent much of yesterday afternoon/evening sans Internet. In my net-deprvied madness, I made the decision to watch the Transformers movie, and it’s since become I decision I wholeheartedly regret (and for which my wife has still yet to forgive me). I’m apparently incapable of depriving my brain of enough oxygen to allow me to enjoy the work of Michael Bay, but a number of my friends have stood by their original assessments of the film being stupidly enjoyable. So question #1: What’s wrong with them? How could anyone decipher even a glimmer of enjoyment out of that juvenile mess of incomprehensible gibberish?
Question 2: Heroes: Good or bad? I’ve been watching this on DVD, and I just can’t make up my mind. There are enough elements to keep me interested, but mostly I’m thinking it’s just a need to see where the hell they’re going with all this. Personally, I think they could drop half the characters and make it a much more concise and interesting show, as I certainly think the show’s narrative suffers greatly from having to bounce around so many storylines.
Discuss (and give me some recommendations for future DVD viewing).
