I watched this too (not through your window, honest).
I'd never seen any of the other Transformers films as I have taste, but I loved this film. It's soooooo gloriously dumb. I loved Marky Mark being grumpy all the time and looking like somebody had just farted - directly into his face. I loved Anthony Hopkins acting in the most "I'm only doing this for the money" way possible and getting away with it because he's Anthony Hopkins. I loved the stereotypical English characters (it's true, we do all play Polo and drink tea!), especially as they were played for laughs and the main annoying stuck up English woman fell over a lot - people should fall over more in this kind of film - also she kept getting new outfits out of nowhere. I loved that the guy was in it whose name I couldn't remember until I saw that he had "Morshower" printed on his army (I think - I've no idea who anybody was) uniform. I love Josh Duhamel. I loved the robot dinosaurs, especially the cute little ones. I loved that it was really loud. I loved that they ended the film with a giant frikkin robot planet far bigger than our own planet 'resting' on the Earth, with presumably no way to move it off.
