24th June 2009 in Malaysian cinemas
*I watched the trailer, and of all the WHOAs, WAHs and HOLY SHITs I was supposed to express, I thought "did that bad bad robot spit a tiny robotic limb to slap Shia LaBeouf (1.55min)???"
The 24th was a very important day (cue: fireworks and party hats) until I had to change it to the 22nd of June instead.
"Apasal", you ask.
"United International Pictures Malaysia are premiering Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen, 2 days before the Malaysian premiere and a full 24 hours before the world premiere and Nuffnang is giving out tickets to the premiere," I exclaim. Yes, I said "premiere" four times in a sentence.
To be honest, the only two robots I can recognize on Transformers are Optimus Prime and Bumblebee. Mega-who?
The rest are just really cool robots that can do really cool stuff. Sorry lah, but I grew up in the Power Rangers era mah.
So I'm sitting at home in an itchy turtleneck trying to study for my exam and all I can think about is the Transformers. It's torture I tell you, waiting for the premiere of a movie is torture.
You've got the hot chick for the dudes, the heroic male lead for the girls, and of course, the robots for every fanboy in the theatre.
I mean, how can you NOT want to watch an awesome blockbuster like this?!
My I-hope-I-win slogan:
I can't get enough of Transformers because I want to save Optimus Prime from the evil bots. Keep your robotic missiles away from him!
It's not weird to think a bot is hot, right?
