Transformers 2 and the city.

July 1, 2009

Went to the cinema with Davina, Deena, Frankie and Mel to see Transformers 2.  Against type, I a) did not fall asleep, and b) did not tweet once during the film!  So it was a reasonable success, despite the film being 2 and a half hours long and having far too many robot-on-robot fights.  It only really came alive for me during the human fights.  And the whole saying “I love you” business was a bit ridiculous. There was also a Martine McCutcheon moment when one of the male characters (I like to think it was Josh Duhamel, but correct me if I’m mistaken) said “This is my moment”.  I whisper-sang “This is my perfect moment” and we all CDFU!  Occasionally I am comedic, yes.

The highlight of the film for me, as a 99% gay male, was the sexuality exuded by Megan Fox.  Yes, Isabel Lucas positively burned the screen during her time, but her role had me solely whisper-yelling “Slut!” at the screen (which I guess was the purpose of it, so well done Michael Bay).  But Megan Fox, despite not really displaying her acting chops (I presume she does have some), was pure fire.  Look at this bish:

Megan Fox + car

Megan Fox + car

Yes.  Yes yes yes.  Jessica Alba, you have some competition.  Beyoncé, move to the back of the class.  Ciara… well, I still love you.  But Megan Fox was scorching!  The other 1% of my sexuality was very satisfied during this film.  I prefer her to Angelina Jolie, for realz.  So my review of Transformers 2 was a surprising thumbs up! Not the best film I’ve ever seen, but certainly exceeded my low expectations.

Looking at Megan Fox (and trying my hardest not to compare her with mismatch Shia LaBoeuf – seriously, on what universe?!) got me thinking on the nature of beauty.  But that is a whole other post, because I don’t want this to be a super-epic-thon like the last two.  But apart from being super-obsessed with my looks and my weight and my body and my clothes and my perfume, I wanted to know, what makes me feel beautiful / handsome?  Well… many things.  But what makes me feel attractive or sexy or handsome without requiring the validation of someone else?  Tonight, these things made me feel good:

  • Riding home in Davina’s car with the window all the way down and the wind blowing through my hair and on my skin.
  • Singing along to Toni Braxton – “Hit The Freeway” – it’s been a long time since I’ve heard that song without me being the one playing it!
  • The city lights shining in a twilight sky.
  • Spending a lovely evening with friends.

Sometimes, more really is more.  But at other times the cliché holds true, and it is the simple things that really make you (or at least me) sit up and appreciate the good things in life.  Because when there’s so much negativity in the world on a daily basis, we all have to take what we can get!  So I am taking as much as I can, and I hope that you do too. Goodnight folks 🙂
