The Haunted House

Thursday, August 02, 2007


Last night Me and Neil went to see Transformers the movie in Derby. I have been looking forward to this film for over 9 months now. Plot wise, the film is very simple. It is a good old good vs evil special effects romp. This is all I was expecting, and it didn't disappoint. It's a perfect film to switch your brain off at and just enjoy the ride.

Because I used to work in video games, I am still very much interested in the animation technology that goes into making these films as there is a lot of technical overlap between games and film production. If you are interested in special effects take a read of this article over at I am hoping that the 2 disc special edition DVD box set will contain lots of documentaries about the making of the film because I like that sort of thing.

Anyway if special effects and action are your thing, then go and see the film in the cinema. This sort of film really should be appreciated on a large screen with a THX certified sound system. If deep and meaningful plots with profound and intricate human interactions are more your thing, then you will be disappointed, go and see Crash instead ;-)
