Transfomers. They're more than meets the eye, and because I was never *that* much a fan of the cartoons, I really liked the previous movie a lot. Pity I've now seen this movie and was more than a little disappointed by it. I believe the wording of my Facebook status afterwards was:
"[I] watched Transformers II to dull the pain of work... and now I'm turning to alcohol to dull the pain of Transformers II".
Was it worth it? For the amount of time I lined up - overall? No. For the experience - perhaps. To the possibly permanent detriment of my relationship to my camera and its autofocus system - Yes, ...or maybe No, depending on the wording.
Here's how a strange day went down, photographically:
So, fair enough I got a couple of not-too-bad-shots. But I won’t lie, it wasn’t my favourite premiere from a photographic perspective. Can’t wait for the movie, though, with my expectations kept firmly in check at ‘Terminator Salvation’ levels. (ie. not high, verging on skeptical)
Until next time!
