Singapore Gala Premiere of Transformers
Last night, I attended the Singapore Gala Premiere of the new Transformers movie at The Cathay. Before I write any further, here are the 5 things that you people should know:
1) Transformers is so far the best movie this year!
2) Megan Fox is a babe! No wait. She is a goddess!
3) The Transformers robots look so awesomely real that I really believe that they exist.
4) Shia LaBeouf is destined to be a big, big name actor.
5) And err, yes, I did scream and shout with excitement throughout the movie.
Ok. Let's start with the pictures taken last night.
That's the pamphlet containing tickets to the Gala Premiere.
The giant heads of Megatron and Optimus Prime greet the guests at the Premiere.
That's Optimus and me!
Ok, now to the review. The movie is about giant robots making a big mess on Earth. The good guys are the Autobots led by their leader, Optimus Prime. The bad guys are the Decepticons, led by Megatron. They fight. They shoot rockets, bullets, bombs. They try to kill each other. Some are really killed in the end. I won't tell who. Ok now you guys should just go watch the movie. Ha!
Seriously, Transformers is the best movie so far this year. It's a movie that I think even the girls would enjoy watching. It is highly entertaining from start to finish - very rare for a movie nowadays. Credit to the writers. I was worried that the script for the movie would be poor but I was surprised that it turned out to be much, much better that I expected. Lots of humorous moments too.
The CGI was brilliant - the best I've seen in a movie. Like I said earlier, the robots look damn real. The way they transformed into their vehicle modes is awesome. I have never seen anything like it before. Totally breathtaking. Makes you want a real Transformer as a buddy.
There are so many moments in the film that is worth mentioning but there's one that I like the best. That's the part when Optimus Prime said to Megatron, "One shall stand and one shall fall." Brilliant! That's the same line that was said during the 1986 Transformers animated film. What a classic! I bet the writers included that line to pay homage to it.
The biggest credit has got to go to director Michael Bay. Oh boy, did he prove the doubters wrong - that he IS the right person for the job. His directing was of the highest quality. I even shouted, "I love you Michael Bay!" once the film ended. Hehehe.
Now, I can't wait for Transformers 2. I'm very sure there is a sequel coming. Till then...
Transform and roll out!
