I watched Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. It was a whim, but there were a lot of Decepticons in it, which was coolio. I don't really have to review it, as it's basically a special effects fest. I found it kinda difficult to watch at times because there are so many special effects and CGI that it becomes hard to even see what's going on.

I did notice Megan Fox stood around with her mouth hanging open a lot. More robotic than the robots....

I need a burning question answered though. I watched it in the 80s. Wasn't it Megatron who was supposed to turn into a giant gun? Didn't one of them do that?

I think there is a special clause in Megan Fox's contract that demands a certain minimum of scenes where she has her mouth open (to lure adolescent boys to buy movie tickets or something). Or perhaps the director says "Megan, could you open your mouth in this scene, for no particular reason". I don't think she's that hot personally and I never go to see a movie because there are hot girls in it. I agree that the Transformers in the movies are sometimes hard to separate, especially in fighting scenes, but if you want mindlessly entertaining action movies you could do worse. 

I also watched the animated television shows and you're right, Megatron does transform into a weapon, a Walther P38 according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megatron_%28Transformers%29.

Thor was a really well done movie, with both impressive scenery and funny moments.

I knew it! I knew he turned into a gun. Frankly, that would have been more impressive to see.  I guess there is another transformers movie coming this summer, sans Megan Fox but with some other girl with her mouth hanging open. The premise of this one actually looks a bit cooler because it is invasion style stuff. I might go see that. Also Spielberg is in charge. I don't remember that before.

Perfume: The story of a murderer

We used to discuss a part of the book back in school and it looked rather original, so i wanted to see this movie.

A weird guy with an extreme sense of smell becomes obsessed with the heavenly perfume that virginal redheads radiate and wants to distill it into a bottle. Serial killing ensues. Sweat gets collected. Empty shells are left behind. Even the main girl doesn't make it. Moral event horizons are crossed. A loving father has one hell of a reason to be pissed.

Swééééééét... How horrible!

The resulting perfume allows our dude to take over the world with pure presence alone. A mass orgy breaks out, the bishop humps a hooker in public and even daddy dearest forgives the bastard.

However, in the end, there is still no one who wants to have sex with the hero.

I recommend this movie and the book because it's original and fetishy to the extreme. I can't guarantee you guys will like it tough. Also: If you think redheads are hot you will come buckets. This flick features some of the finest specimens of that subspecies of girls ever.   :drink:

The Hangover 2:

One of the funniest movies I have ever seen. 

I also learned things from it:

When they say Asians are not well endowed, they really meant it.
A tiny monkey who's trained to give blow jobs is funny in any language (once you forget about the hep viris and all)
Bangkok is a hell of a town. (I suspected this last bit.)

A must see movie, Mothafookas!

Maybe he should have tried using AXE or any other perfume that will instantly get ladies to want to have sex with you (according to their commercials). I haven't seen the film or read the book, but it seems like a really good and different story. Perhaps I'll read the book, which is originally in German. When it comes to books or movies always go for the original when possible. Translation and, even worse, dubbing really ruins the experience I think. You can't get better than the original, so why bother with anything less than the original.

Many said that the original hangover was hilarious, but I didn't laugh much. Is the second better than the first in your opinion?

If you didn't like the first one, you won't like the second one.  They're both the same flavor of comedy.

I saw most of this movie a while ago, and I liked it because it stretched the bounds of what people can consider "beautiful", especially the crazy ones. It's very Slaaneshi, if you keep up with the Warhammer or Warhammer 40K universes.

You won't like them if you don't enjoy laughing at stupid and absurd situations. Random shit. I actually find them really funny. But I like a lot of comedy.
