I had to make a choice: watch the movie so that I don't miss anything, or watch the food so that I don't drop anything.
And this is the moment when I realised something about stories and plots, and how it has now affected the way I watch stories and the way I run roleplaying games. I remember, quite clearly, thinking, "It's just an action sequence. All that matters is who wins and what happens to the characters after the fight."
For the theorists out there, this is a case of Scene Resolution rather than Task Resolution. For me (in the here and now), the only importance of a fight scene is how it impacts on the plot, so much so that I can look away from the Michael Bay extravaganza of Optimus Prime battling half a dozen Decepticons by himself... just so I can each nachos, and I don't feel as though I've lost anything.
This is how I like to run games these days, but I hadn't expect it to have such an impact on the way I watch movies.
(By the way, if you liked the first Transformers movie, you'll like the sequel. Enjoy!)
