I'd get into Satan's Camaro

We took the kids to see the "Transformers" movie on the Fourth.

Some people go on picnics on the Fourth of July, my family escaped to the confines of a super air-conditioned megaplex of theaters.  (Nothing says "American" like an overpriced movie ticket, bladder-challenge sized Coke and a bucket of popcorn so large you could park a VW in it.  Hold the butter, I have standards.) We were in good company, as we arrived an hour before our show was to begin, and only 78 seats were left in the theater.

It's not a good sign, my friends, when the line inside rivals a Disneyland line, and you are the lone adult with your merry band of children.  Mr W was the player to be named later, "I'll meet you there, let me wrap this up" somehow becoming a plot to time his arrival to coincide with the beginning of the previews.  No matter.  The merry band stayed merry, close, and (miraculously) well-behaved.

The movie was fantastic.  The special effects were good, the action was good...

I give it two thumbs up.

I have a very hard time going to movies...

I don't know if it is the price of the tickets...

The fact that I don't like people I don't know sitting next to me...

Or just the fact that I can't pause the movie when I have to pee - and because I have the bladder the size of a pea, I go often...

I rarely go... I know my hubby can't stand that too!!

I do want to see "Transformers"... as well as "Pirates"... the new Disney Rat movie... and "Harry Potter"...

So, I guess I better venture out ;)

Glad you had a great 4th...

We were at the movie's on the 4th too...and I saw the lines for Transformers!  WOWZERS!!!!  We opted for Evan Almighty, and I go for extra butter!  Must be why your figure looks better than mine.

I enjoyed the Transformer movie too, except I went on Tuesday night and had to get there extra early to get a ticket and a decent seat.  I didn't realize that it was such a big deal!
