more than meets the eye. less that meets the ear.

1. I hate to rag on a small neighborhood theater that I can walk to...but the Squirrel Hill Theater is a relic of the dark ages that needs to be upgraded or demolished or something. Broken air conditioning is one thing (broken air conditioning that causes the theater to close on the hottest day of the year when I was really looking forward to chillin' with some giant robots). Calamities like that happen, and I'm willing to forgive. But that sound system is unacceptable. And unforgivable. What was that, eight bit 22khz digital sound? Why bother? Might as well put up subtitles and have someone playing a piano in back. I imagined myself as one of the (genius) sound designers for that film, being forced to see it here, with this hideous mockery of an aural sensation. Pure hell.

2. Movie's better the second time. Fewer people in the theater means less applause and laughter, less communal experience but fewer distractions and more involvement in the story. Better for me. Also easier to follow what's going on the second time through, and things that were absurd on the first viewing seemed less so. Everything made a lot more sense.

3. Frenzy still rocks, and totally isn't dead. His remaining eye was able to say "oh shit" after his decapitation, proving it can live without the rest of him. I'm sure he transformed into a used shotgun shell and got taken out with the trash. Frenzy will be back.

4. Speculation continues to center on how Megatron will be revived for the sequel. Why bother? Frenzy's clearly the most effective Decepticon and should be the leader.

5. The All Spark is clearly some sort of hypercube. Most likely, only the bit of it that currently existed in this dimension, after Bumblebee folded it up, was destroyed. It'll be back too.

6. I really need to go see it again in a theater with real sound.

7. Harry Potter sucks. See Transformers!

Ooh! Frenzy should team up with Aku! They'd be the baddest villainous duo ever. They'd conquer the universe in no time.

Plus, they have similar head silhouettes.
