    Transformers!


    Caught this one on the 4th - it so totally ruled. Any gripes I may have had with the movie were completely washed away by an unstoppable barrage of hot chicks and giant robots blowing stuff up. Im gonna go see it again tomorrow

    It came so close to what I was imagining as a 10 year old kid rushing home from school to play with my toys and watch the cartoon...I'm so happy that the movie didnt just not suck, but kicked all kinds of ass

    Agree V. I seen it on the 4th as well. While other losers where at the local parade I was getting my eye candy fix on. Much better then anything I ever imagined. I almost forgot how well Peter Cullen's voice fit Prime. Brought back a lot of good childhood memories.

    I may just wait for the DVD. I am really getting sick of movies with themes from 1980's tv shows...

    When a movie thats 2 hours and 23 min feels like an hour thats saying something. Michael Bay has totally redemed himself of past failures.

    Optimus Prime: "My Bad" awsome!

    Yeah I hear ya bro - but if you're gonna see one of them this is definitely the one. It MUST be seen on the big screen - seriously.

    The intro narrative kicked it all off for sure. His "my bad" comment was pretty cool to, and I love the fact that they threw in the classic yet little remembered line " At the end of this day, one shall stand... and one shall fall." I was a kid all over again.

    Without a doubt this movie kicked serious ass!! It's amazing how seeing this movie brought out the 8 year old kid again who loved his transformers. You have to love megatron's famous line when he tells starscream " You've failed me yet again starscream."....and that megan fox.....HOT!!!

    What was even better was that was pretty much the very first thing he said lol. They really pushed ebay and GM motors hardcore in the movie too, but hey it all fit fairly well.

    On an off topic, anybody have any idea what the secret trailer was at the beginning of the movie?

    Hot young chicks awesome !

    Hugo "Agent Smith" Weavering voice awesome

    Corporate embedded cross over marketing scary !

    how old were you guys when you first got into the Transformer comics? At 62, I can't recall when my former patients were so taken with the Transformers in play therapy. Also my 20 month old grandson loves trucks and I was wondering if he would like his first Transformer.

    Well I am 34. I was 12 in 1984 when they first came out. I really didn't play with toys much. Maybe match box cars some. Mostly I would ride my bike and go outside to catch snakes and go fishin.

    Im 31 now - I think I was around 7 when I started playing with the toys. First the GoBots, then the Transformers. There was this toystore in town that got all the die-cast japanese imports in so that's what we had - I look on Ebay now and that stuff is worth a mint! Too bad my brother and I played with them all so much they're all worn to **** now

    voltron was the ****....they have the cartoon series out on dvd now also. Voltron and the transformers are tough to beat....i think kids toys today seriously fail in comparison to what our generation had.

    There was a place in Waltham MA. on Moody St where they had everything like that, Gai King, Jesse Dart, Star Poseidon/Arrow, StarBlazers, anything remotely anime.. Also the Voltron that was made up of all those damn cars and jets, he was considered Voltron 2 while the lion based Voltron was 3.. Voltron 1 was 3 robots that became one big one, but the comic was kinda boring..

    Watched it free at home on the lcd plasma....you guys should really check this out...Forget renting movies.as long as your even slightly computer literate and can read instructions...you can watch stuff in the theatres for free,I watched Hostel 2 in Hd-dvd qualtiy 3 weeks before it even came out in theatres

    http://movieforumz.com

    This is no BS...just get an s-video cable and you can use your laptop or pc to play on your tv,or like Sinner mentioned,you "10ft.wide 108i projector"

    Plus were lucky,the ay the theatre is setup here,you can just walk in,hit the bathrooms,and hit the theatre...I havn't paid for a Movie in a long time...last one was 300'..just cause we wanted to see it in hi-def on the big Imax screen...loved that movie..

    If you can't figure it out just pm me..its a completely free site..my girl watches movies most of the day on her pc at the office...

    Ah yeah this place had all that too! My Dad used to get us all the robot stuff there because it was so much more detailed/higher quality than the US branded toys. I never did get Voltron 1 or 2 but I remember looking at them in the store...

    While we're at it let's not forget Tranzor-Z and Robotech!

    Robotech was actually pretty dramatic, and had hot anime chicks.

    I thought Transformers was good but not overly amazing except for tha special effects.

    I had higher expectations. In tha end, they changed things too much.
