So last night after vball, the team got to talking about the Transformers movie filming in the Loop. Don’t ask me why. I don’t know. However, it did remind me of Shia LaBaouf. Which reminded me of his previous movies… including Eagle Eye. Now, for those of you who didn’t see it, won’t admit to seeing it, or who blocked it out of your subconcious memory, you’ll recall it involved a 2001: A Space Odyssey-esque plotline. Oh, who are we kidding. It was a blatant rip off of 2001:ASO.
Anyway, it involved a kid who was chased aroun or something and everywhere he went various electronic devices talked to him.
This was an awful movie. The best part of the movie was when it ended and Best Friend and I went to get ice cream. We also decided that the original movie used so many different machines to display messages that any potential sequel (hahahaha I know) would have to really stretch the imagination. The sequel should use machines like alarm clocks. And calculators. You know, digital displays that can really speak to the characters using descriptive phrases like “hello” and “boobs”.
Can’t you see it playing out? Shia looks to his coffee maker, rubs the sleep out of his eyes and blinks.
Shia: What does that say? Boobs?? I don’t understand…?
Coffee Maker: BOOBS!!! BOOBS!!!! HELLO, BOOBS!!!
Shia: I…. I don’t get it. Are there… (looks around) are there boobs that you want me to see? Are there… I don’t understand?
Coffee Maker: HELLO!!! HELLO!!! BOOBS!!
Shia: Great. Well, I’ve got a meeting so I’ll see you later, coffee maker.
