From the clips I saw of it, it looks like a good movie, but good f**king God that MUSIC...it just takes me out of it, man.

I just can't take this movie seriously as an epic movie about robots beating the s**t out of each other with some whiney 80's rock band singing "YOU GOT THE TOUCH, you got the POOOOOOOOOOWEEEEEEEEER..."

No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

"The Touch" is off limits.

NONSENSE!!!!! The music was AWESOME!!!! Lion performing the Transformers Theme was EPIC!!!! Also love the fact that the guitarist out of that band was none other than the very talented Doug Aldrich, who plays in Whitesnake today!

Stan Bush's numbers too are great. Yes The Touch is cheesy not to mention the other song - I think it was called "Dare" or something? ♪♫ Better believe you can survive ♪♫ well that was in it.

As for this movie oh how I remember watching this in the theatre at the very innocent age of 10. I'll never forget it, and still holds dear to this day.

And now speaking of Stan Bush, thinking I'll throw this in for good measure. Featured at the end of the War for Cybertron game!

"It all started with a cartoon and a line of action figures"....WRONG (geez do some research), it all started with Diaclone and a bunch of other Japanese toylines and a comic book written by Bob Budinsky, NOT the cartoon, the cartoon came last.

I like this guy. But he jumps to conclusions, and I'm not always sure whether he knows what he is talking about. He shoots from the hip too much, and while some of what he says is spot on, a lot seems to be nostalgia filled propaganda. I agree Transformers is a fun movie to watch, and one I have repeat viewed even into my adult years, but it doesn't deserve too much analysis.

A nice thing to note about the film...it openned on my birthday.

Okay, how about f**kin' WIERD AL? Huh? Is "Dare to be Stupid" off limits?

I apologize, but any movie that tries to put that song in with a straight face deserves to be mocked.

The Theatrical releases used the Star Wars style openning. You could also get certain Canadian and Japanese video cassettes of the movie that contained this openning.

No. Call of the Primatives and Five Faces of Darkness would be the ones to explore that.

Call of the Primatives does not explain anything about the matrix.It was an animation error on the part of the company that did that epp.It was not the intention of the writers to connect the matrix to Primacon's aid.The animation house was givin a bunch of designs and a script but no history on the charters.

That's highly debated. The explanation for that was given well after the fact, and most people chalk it up to fanwank attempts to merge the comic and cartoon. Fact is, even if it WAS an animation error the story and dialogue matched perfectly with what was going on in the animation. So it was a very rational animation error and not something akin to miscoloring Optimus. The lab assisstant claimed a desire and means to stop Unicron, in addition to stating that it was wise...something the cartoon Matrix was.
Quote:
Unicron was created by the insane genius, Primacron, but turned on him. After Unicron's attack against his master, Primacron's assistant was shown to flee, and from his damaged robotic body, an object that appeared to be the Matrix emerged. If this truly was intended to be the Matrix, how the Transformers obtained it was never revealed.

If you're trying to insinuate me as a "Michael Bay-type," I shall sue you for slander, sir. SLANDER!
