Not Like the Movies ~ Katy Perry

Once upon a time, I used to see almost all newly released movies. Going to the movies was a very regular activity for me.

These days I rarely go to the movies or rent movies.

So my sister asked me if I had gone to see Super 8.  And I said no.

And she was all, "You totally should."

And I was all, "I totally won't. I don't do those type of movies"

And she was all, "It's like E.T.!"

And I was all, "Yeah, I have never watched E.T. all the way through because I flipping HATE that movie! I don't like alien movies, except for like Transformers or Star Wars or Signs. I also don't do disaster movies or earth being destroyed movies."

And she was all, "Yeah I probably wouldn't bother with Super 8 then."

And I was all, "Totally never was going to bother with it in the first place."

So Tuesday night/Wednesday morning I went to see Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon. I didn't realize I was until it was too late and my ticket had been purchased. When I agreed to see it opening night, I assumed that I was agreeing to a Thursday night. I was not. The problem was that I had just developed a really fun and fantastic summer cold on Tuesday and had decided that I would cuddle up with some cold medications and call it an early night. Instead, I probably ruined the movie for everyone within 10 feet of me due to my constant sniffling and nose blowing.

Despite such inauspicious circumstances, I enjoyed the movie. Minus the 10 or 15 minutes of the movie where it felt more like a disaster/alien/the earth and humans will be destroyed movie. If it was a Star Wars movie it would be most like Empire Strikes Back which I refuse to watch and instead just skip to Return of the Jedi. Because along with alien, disaster, earth ending, demonic, horror, and slasher movies, I also don't like movies where the bad guys succeed more than I would like.

Oh and before you go believing that I am strictly a romantic comedy kind of girl, let me just tell you that I think most of the romantic comedies that have been released in the past 5-10 years have been completely stupid and overly cheesy.

Wow! Am I persnickety or what?

But back to Transformers. I know that since Megan Fox is such an AMAZE-BALLS actress, you have all been really, really stressing about whether or not the new chicky-chick could fill her Oscar-caliber shoes. She can. Breathe a sigh of relief on that one. Also, remember how in the second Transformers you got annoyed because the parents were just way too much? They have been severely toned down and scaled back. Less is more.

Meg's Mind is to Roger Ebert as Megan Fox is to Meryl Streep.
