"Um yeah, Satan's Camaro? It's stalking me!"

Given that it’s been a relatively lazy long weekend so far, we’ve watched a couple of movies.

Transformers (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was a pretty acceptable little action movie. Flashy and dumb like all Michael Bay films, but the special effects were amazing and we actually laughed quite a few times…especially at Shia LaBeouf’s parents. Stupid, but fun.

The Lives Of Others (imdb | rotten tomatoes) was juuuuuust about the polar opposite of Transformers. Not at all flashy or fast-paced, but a scary study of life in East Germany in the 1980s. Well, scary but…uplifting somehow. Or reassuring. Or just slightly less scary. Anyway, it was very good…though not good enough to steal the best Foreign Language Film Oscar away from Pan’s Labyrinth, in my opinion. Still, I’d recommend it.
