Strange thoughts...

So, it's midnight, I've got the week from hell approaching, I can't sleep, I'm too hot, and my mind keeps wandering to other things.

Recently I've been cleaning up and tidying up paperwork and stuff, and have found various things that have caused me to wonder whether all relationships are based on lies.

Now before I go on, I'm not being emo, and I'm not being depressive, I'm just curious. While tidying up I found various documents, paper and e-documents, from ex's, and possible ex's, and close friends....

And I just wonder. When people write things, do they mean it? And am I the only person who finds that when things are written down they hold more truth in my head than when they are spoken?

I'm not complaining, reading some of the things I found today made me smile and remember good times, and that's a great thing, but I suspect the confusion that is running through my mind is to do with the fact that I have, and always have, had trouble with letting go of conversations, feelings and ideas.

I guess that probably makes me a little stupid.

I have no reason to write this, and maybe tomorrow morning I'll decide to delete this. Or maybe not. I don't even have a conclusion or any idea how to end this post.

So I will just end it here.

Peace Out.

Transformers 2 and other stuff - Spoilers Be in this review

So, I just came back from seeing Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen... and I have to say, I think that the best description of it comes from Sprog who named it Transformers: Revenge of the Explosions.

It was pretty good, suffering mostly from all the thing that a sequal suffers from - too many characters, certain "contracted" actors returning with nothing to do, an attempt to make it bigger and better making it more convulouted and overlong....

Oh. And way too long a climax.

Seriously, the whole Egypt section - WAY TOO LONG!!! And how long does it take Sam and Mikaela to run a mile!!

Devestator was quite cool, but pretty well wasted... the plot didn't need him AND the Fallen AND Megatron....

Oh, and Sams parents? Not needed. And the stoned mum bit at the beginning.. not funny.

Why didn't we get any answers about the decepticon college girl?

If there's two chunks of the allspark left, and one of them is able to revive Megatron, then why doesn't Sam just take the other one straight to Optimus Prime, rather than use it to wake Jetfire?

Why in every film like this do we have the irritating Government idiot who tries to shut down the project? What did that do to aid the plot?

And how much money did Josh Duhamel and Tyrese Gibson get for however few minutes of screentime they actually had? I wonder, was there a lot more of their plot that was cut?

I know this sounds negative, but there were bits I liked a lot... the editing style was much better than the first one, you could mostly see who was fighting who in the fights without the camera cutting every five seconds....

Oh and I know I'm echoing every straight man who saw it.. but Megan Fox.... droool.....

There were some good jokes, the return of Agent Simmons was done in a great way, and it was partly great popcorn entertainment.

All in all, it was fun, but by the end it was dragging. I'm usually a fan of long films, especially if I'm paying a fortune to see them in the cinema, but even I was wondering how long it had been going on by the end. Then I thought we'd reach the end... then I realised the Fallen hadn't turned up yet.....

So yeah. 7/10 i think.

Moving on... in other news, my deadline for Out of Time has been extended a week, so it should be done by next Friday (26th), although that'll depend on work - which will be madly hectic this week.

And also, I am ridiculously excited by New Super Mario Bros Wii... and Mario Galaxy 2... and the new Metroid Game... click here for trailery goodness!

Talk soon
