Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen opened yesterday. Were you first in line? Did you buy your tickets weeks in advance on Fandango? Did you track down that Optimus Prime toy you’ve been keeping in the attic since the ’80s?
My answer to all these questions is a resounding, “No.” Look, I’m not anti-Transformers; it’s just not a franchise that’s been a part of my pop culture life. I didn’t watch the TV show and, even though the complete first season was just released on DVD, I have no intentions of doing so. In short, I have no nostalgia for Autobots and Decepticons.
But I’m mildly curious about the movie sequel that opened yesterday, and there isn’t much else being released this weekend that has me jonesin’ to visit the multiplex. Should I go? You tell me. And voice your choice in today’s featured poll about what draws you to the flick: is it Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, or the ‘bots themselves?
