Movies and violence …

Filed under: Entertainment,Movie,Tech — ramsblog @ 5:15 am

I was at the Movie Transformer 2, 2 days ago. Apparently, this time, I made it at about the right time. Most movies I go, although, it is very rare, would have the house almost empty, and it is easier to find the last row, that i usually prefer. Or perhaps, we usually go earlier than this time. Anyways, although it was on time, it was not really on time for the movie to start, but just on time before the trailers began. Managed to find a seat on row 5 from the last, I never prefer to go to the front to watch move, although i see some people prefer to sit on row 3 or 4 from the front and some at row1. When you go to the Sony Digital screen which is about 45 to 50 ft tall, and sit at the front, I can’t imagine the stiff neck you would have when you get out of the theatre.

Anyways, being right on time for trailers, sometimes, I like the those trailers being a great preview. But at times, it makes me think whether all movies made these days are of violence in nature? Or do trailers follow the path the main movie is labeled as? in this case it was Transformers. Following trailers were shown:

9.9.09 – some sort of violence
The airbender – about destroying one individual (but appears to have lots of stunts)
Search: 2010 –> about world ending in 2010
Gamer: – about army and slayers – though a video game, but the players are real
<and few more>

I probably feel it this way because of not watching many movies, and me going to a theatre is once or twice a year. or well, I am not sure if such movies has made me not to go watch them.

well, I am also aware, that at the end of the day, me talking about violence movie doesn’t mean anything in general.

Now, coming to the part of Movie I watched : “Transformers 2: the raise of the fallen” –> it was a great movie. Great graphics, great direction. Although, I personally felt, if I missed the sequel part of it for not watching the part1 of the movie. but yesterday, one of my colleagues, said: not necessarily – as they are not completely connected or disconnected. so even without watching part1, you should still be able to grasp the theme. I guess my understanding was very isolated to part2 alone.

Overall, the movie was entertaining, funny, though some violence, but not in a way that living characters get hurt. I know some viewers have that kind of notion that as long as living characters are not hurt in the movie, it is entertaining. So movie characters involving into violence were mostly autobots. I liked the movie, and it was also interesting to note the movie was for over 140minutes, it is is not that often that we notice English movies being that long.



  1. I think that violent movies show that kind of previews. The more softer, chick flicks have previews for Litte Women…When I go with the boys I also think, ayyooo Raama! Then you have Bourne Identity kinds of previews during Bond movies.(sigh my favorite kind 🙂 ). Yet to see Transformer 2.

  3. @bachodi,
    well, i think for someone who watch one or two movies in a year, it is probably likely to like the cinematography 🙂
