Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

So I have seen ROTF twice (so far).  I don't know if I am surprised or not at my reaction to the plot of 'killing' Optimus.  It's the weirdest thing.  Its very similiar to when I first saw the cartoon movie way back when.  It's a delayed response.  I remember we went to eat at McDonalds (funny I remember that!) before we left the city and I just started to cry out of the middle of nowhere.  Ok so I was like 10 I think.  It's much the same with this movie and how old am I now?  :-P  Play that Linkin Park song or Green Day and I'll no doubt be in tears. 

I think it has to do with how much Transformers meant to me when I was growing up.  I *know* that sounds ridiculous!  Really its just a cartoon.  (Yeah and that is why I've cried my eyes out at Sailor Moon and Gundam Seed. :-P)  I never even had the Optimus G1 toy.  -_-  But I still have Blaster and Soundwave and Ravage (much to my cousin's jealousy! He always wanted Ravage from me. :-P)

Really it is an obvious plot, it's like in the older Star Wars books, Luke always got injured in some ways in order to take him down a notch, or something like that.  And I read on wikipedia that Optimus is really expensive to CGI (not saying that the rest of the characters aren't) so it was a way to not have to CGI Optimus.  I'm quite sure they have constructed something resembling Optimus for the scenes when he was dead, so to speak.  Isn't it always better to make everything as real as they can, instead of CGIing everything?

I haven't read the novelization yet, but someone on Genvid used the term stasis lock.  Yes I suppose you could argue that it was stasis lock, but it wasn't the same concept as in Beast Wars.  Then you could argue that Megatron was in stasis lock at the bottom of the ocean.

And its not like its the absolute best movie I've ever seen.  And although this one was better, there were still some issues that remain from the first movie.  Can you tell them all apart and can you hear them all - I mean the Transformers?  And I must admit that there is a part there when someone in the military is yelling at the commander saying 'Incoming transmission from Autobots!'  (or something) that it sounds just a little ridiculous!  Like it doesn't belong in the same sentence with anything military!  

It doesn't help that its the same voice from the cartoon - Peter Cullen.  What an awesome voice.  And as a total aside, that Soundwave is so cool!  I'm on the hunt for the toy!  (and AGAIN how old am I?) 

I don't know if I actually have anybody that will actually read my LJ as I don't update a lot. I know I'm on some friends lists.  I think.  Just felt it was better to put this here then on genvid.

I WAS RIGHT!!!!

WINTER is here!

ARGH!  I hate freezing rain.
I feel so stupid.   I have been traveling the last three days.
I only got as far as the next city - about 130 KM away and I got
stormed stayed!   All the roads going out of the city were 'travel
not recommended"
It probably said that this morning!  Stupid me didn't believe the warning.
Well at least I'm safe and have a hotel room.
I'm going to try going home tomorrow morning, even if I have to crawl
at 50 KM/hour for the next 150 KM.

Seed 2009 calendar


I waaaaaaaaant!  Unlike 2008, the pictures are so much nicer.

Man just read the comments, those asucaga fans are so excited!

Dressing up as Lacus (again!)

I get to put on my Lacus Clyne costume tomorrow!  We do our Halloween afternoon tomorrow at school.
I got my Lacus plushie just in time! :-PP

lol and everyone will look at me and say... Who are you supposed to be?

Haven't had the chance to look to see what stuff has been posted for Athrun's bday. 
Hoping for a fic at least.

----------

What the? Oi!  Oh boy.  Here I am 'complaining' about the lack of Gundam Seed stuff out there on the net, and here
I go and totally forget about the HAIR CLIP!!   *roll eyes*

YES I admit it, I went searching for a pic of Lacus because I couldn't quite remember how the sleeves go
and doh!  the hair clip!  This one http://www.gundamofficial.com/worlds/ce/seed/characters/chara_lacus.html


  What with most of my belongings at my other place and me living across town... I purposely
brought over the Halloween costume two weekends ago.  It is at my other place - I remember now where it is.  

Well I'm not about to go over and get it.  (*gasp*!)  I will be surprised if anyone recognized me anyways.

Besides the fuel smell has gone up to the second floor, so a lot of my belongings have a fuel smell to them
(REALLY hoping not the doujinshis!  They are in a cupboard.)   But that is another story.

Happy Birthday Athrun!

Just wanted to remind you all that it is Athrun's birthday on October 29!

Picture Day!

Well tomorrow is picture day, so wish me luck!
(I organize my school's picture day)

It was almost a disaster last year.  So let's not hope for a repeat performance.

Voiceprint with Trevor Devall and guest


New Voiceprint episode!  This time with Richard Cox (ala Inyuasha).  I've only listened to the first part, man its a long interview!  He sounds exactly the same as Inyuasha.

I'm bound and determined to win those copies of all the podcasts.

Listening to Sam Vincent episode (AGAIN!)
LOL  "I know a lot of you anime women out there who get off on the whole yaoi thing and think that Kira and Athrun maybe they love each other, but its not as much fun for me."

But you know I haven't watched a Gundam Seed episode in a LONG time.

INSANELY busy work at week.  When will it end?! 
Oh geez that is how tired I am.  Reread that sentence:  it should read
"busy week at work"







I can't believe I almost forgot....

I can't believe I almost forgot Athrun's birthday on October 29!    *GASP*
Nooooo must not let Seed fandom die!
