Blackout

This is what weekends should really be like. Well, sometimes :). Zero phone use, zero internet access. Tons of movies, and catching up on sleep from like a zillion weeks :D. And of course it was pelting raindrops the size of baseballs, so I figured I'll just stay in and watch the windowpanes take it!Friday was Transformers day! Umm, if you don't know what Transformers are, you'll probably not really like this movie. Unless you're the kind that goes totally wow at fantastic CGI robots and machines and stuff. And cool cars :P. But if you do know the Transformers, you might end up hating this :|. But seeing that I wasn't really looking for anything but a visual extravaganza, what with it being a Friday night and all, I totally loved it :D. Especially the bit when Bumblebee transforms from a beat-up '75 Camaro to the totally sleek '08 concept Camaro :D. Shia LaBeouf is fun. The transformation sequences are totally cool, though hardcore fans might think otherwise, what with the traditional transformation sounds replaced with static. But it's the detail to the transformations that I thought was really awesome! As were the fight/chase sequences. But really, that's all there was to it. Oh well, I suppose you can't have everything. And it was just too bad the Pontiac Solstice (Jazz) had to get ripped up :-<.

Over the weekend I also managed to finally see The Pursuit of Happyness. Must say Will Smith's come a fair way since Wild Wild West /:). Have been avoiding it on in-flight entertainment for a few months now to be able to catch it on a somewhat bigger screen :).

Woke up late this morning. Was up till almost 2 watching Magny-Cours. Was well rewarded with a Ferrari 1-2, though I'd have preferred Massa on the top spot. But anyway, managed to surprise myself by still being on time.... But surprised myself even more by actually remembering what I dreamt of last night. Or this morning actually, felt like I woke straight out of the dream into my 8:45 room with the sun straining to burst in through the thick curtains.

Currently: trapped
Listening to: Linkin Park - By myself

I thought the Transformers Soundtrack was really cool. Ofcourse this movie is more suited for IMAX theaters with all the 3D effects, it was a bit too much CGI for the normal big screen. bit tiring for the eyes somtimes. otherwise, a neat popcorn movie. Would love to get hold of the OST's.

yeah, it was pretty cool, the end credits song was from LP's Minuted to Midnight... yet to figure out most of the rest of the OST...
