Roll Out Down Under

With less than three days to go until the nationwide premiere (four days ahead of the US! Woo!), a link to the official Australian website of the Transformers movie is long overdue – probably because I only just discovered it. It looks as though I’ll see it twice this weekend – first on Saturday, as part of the “Help Rob Frantically Cling To His Youth While It Lasts” pre-birthday party, then again on Sunday with my young mentee.

While I’m on the topic, here’s a review of the movie written by the lads at computer magazine Atomic. Now, if this film needed savaging, I was fully expecting that the performance-happy nerds at Atomic would provide. Their review, however, manages to ably critique the film whilst giving very little away, and their verdict is “Michael Bay shows the doubters it was in safe hands all along”, giving the film a heartening 8.5 out of 10.
