Transforming with Muppets
I went to find the Transformers trailer (for Mike and Dylan) and found it, with the Muppets trailer, too. Something about Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Chef, and Kermit with mechanical cars that reach the earth with glamorized industrialization. Either way, it's about summer cinema and seeing eye candy to take you away from reality for the evening.
Mike and I took Dylan to see the first Transformers and it blew us away. We had no idea it was going to be so phenomenal. The second was good, but I'm hoping the third is the bomb. There's something about seeing flicks from childhood (cartoons or half hour shows) turned into Hollywood hooplah. This is our culture. I watch it with amazement.
