More Than Meets The Eye?
As I write this, the new Transformers movie, Dark of the Moon, is actually already in theaters. I just found out that one of the local movie houses already started a showing at 9:00 PM. I find this kind of amusing becuase this movie has had a very, er, flexible release date. First it was July 1st, then it was June 29 at midnight but I guess that's just the full national release date.
Of course the critics have already seen it an most of the votes are already in. According to USA Today it sucks. According to RottenTomatoes.com it sucks. Yeesh. To be fair, RT did give it a higher score than the much-despised Revenge of the Fallen (TF2 or Revenge got a 20% on RT whilst TF3 got 38%) but TF3 still does not have as high a rating as the first Transformers movie. So what do I think? Well, the critics were wrong about the first movie and they were right about the second so this one has a fifty-fifty shot. We shall see...
