WTF @ TFW - Episode 48

Booyah late release!

Last podcast before ROTF. :O

In preparation

Going to be seeing IMAX Revenge of the Fallen tomorrow night! Got some pre-movie thoughts.

Heading in to this hoping to have fun, and I expect I will.

The internet's going to be a warzone, but luckily on TFW most of that is contained in one subforum. XD

Only thing I'm not looking forward to is once again hitting a cavalcade of "Why do you like such a crap movie" from people I know who aren't as big a fanboy for cartoon robots as I am. Let me lay this out:

I've been into Transformers for about 24ish years, without any of those years-long breaks a lot of other people bring up. I've been heavily active in the online fandom since late '99.

I am seeing the movie in order to enjoy very different things than most average moviegoers and critics.

While I don't plan to defend any of the movie's likely multitudinous faults, the only thing I don't have patience for is "Man it must suck being a Transformers fan and seeing that movie, huh, since it totally ruined the soul of the franchise". I dunno why it bothers me, but whenever I get that it always makes me sigh. And the face hits the palm as I then get told all about how Transformers used to be awesome, nostalgia nostalgia, etc etc.

It annoys me because it turns me into a "snobby nerd who knows more about Transformers than you do" guy for a few seconds. XD Though I take solace in my neuroses being nice and harmless like that.

Revenge of the Fallen is not in a position to ruin Transformers. I like big robots that talk to each other. There are years of fiction and history between '86 and now. I can explain them if you want, but I admit I doubt a lot of people want to know about it.

Anyway, onto the movie, and then onto the lulz of the online discussion spectating!

Click here for the thread!

Forgot to leave space for an intermission on this one, so just pretend the SFX war between the three of us is the programming pause. :O

Vangelus Review 50 - Masterpiece Dragonkaiser

This one took a while to edit, but hopefully it'll be fun to watch. :D

Also if you find the length to be a problem, there's a clickable chapter listing on its Youtube info box.
