Man, the Transformers movie kicked ass!

It's not so much that it was a good movie as that it was very, very fun. Explosions! Planes! Tanks! More explosions! And it was the Transformers, so c'mon! Granted the source material, I don't think it could have been notably improved. Optimus Prime's dialog was hokey, but really, it was Optimus Prime. Goes with the territory.

And Hugo Weaving was the voice of Megatron. Which means that Megatron needed more lines...

Deathless, no. But very fun if, like me, you had no expectations and like to watch giant robots hurt each other.

It ain't a movie without Hugo Weaving talking about how much humans suck.

...you know, that may be my new First Law Of Movies.

I wanted to see more Starscream, me. That thing, in the fight scene, at the end? Awesome.

Rumors are already circulating about a sequel. This time with Unicron.

after this week (and it is ONLY Tuesday) my beloved suggested that maybe a movie this weekend would be in order, we deserve a little escape time...
and this is what we all want to see
Thanks for adding a bit more push to the yes vote for Transformers!

Your post makes me happy.

I wanted to give Bumblebee a hug.

He's so adorable; how can you not want to hug him?

And it was the Transformers, so c'mon!

To quote one of my former coworkers (who unfortunately moved before the movie came out, so I never got to hear him fanboying after the fact), "Dude, as long as I get to see a car turn into a giant robot, my nine bucks will not have been wasted."

That was Hugo Weaving? Awesome. All his lines were so Megatroney. "Again you fail me, Starscream."

The movie delivered. It's not like you didn't know what you were paying for going in. =)

Oddly, of all the awesome fights I think my favorite was the two A-10's and the C-130 gunship blowing the crap out of Scorponok. Go Earthlings!

So much bad ass military technology in that movie. Especially the F-22 Raptors... so beautiful. That plane is so hot. *drools*

And the shot of the naveal battle group, well that was just cool too. I might be biased though.

Oh and the robots that turned into thigns *waves hand* *L*

I was pleasantly surprised by Shia LaBeouf's ability to pull off Sam Witwicky. The trailers had left me rather frightened on that score.

I also liked the nice little touch of the Decepticons periodically flicking a running human out of the way. Flailing, screaming, teeny little humans!
I took this transformers quiz: http://www.liquidgeneration.com/Media/Games/Quizzes_Puzzles/Knowledge_Quizzes/The_Ultimate_Transformers_Quiz/
and it told me I'd be Soundwave...I don't know how I feel about that.
It's worth a few minutes 'cause it's the old school bots.

Are you kidding? What's more awesome than a giant robot who talks in Robotone with a giant cassette player in his chest, which shoots out huge tapes that can turn into birds and I-swear-to-god RABBITS that go out and spy on people and record and playback eavesdropped conversations?! Soundwave is the COOLEST.

I'm Wheeljack, by the way. Apparently, I talk with my glowing ears.

I probably would have liked this movie had they cut out all of the plots involving the humans. The robot fights were awesome, but too few and far between in my opinion...

I recently had to take my laptop to BestBuy to get repaired. When I picked it up, they were just finishing up a few things, and we wound up having a chat with all the geeksquad about how awesome Transformers was!

I think we scared the "normals" waiting in line.

Scaring the "normals" is fun!

I noticed it hasn't been mentioned yet and I just wanted to point out that making out on top of a sentient being... that's just creeeeeeeeeeeeeeepy.

Even if that girl was scorching.

I had a similar thought...

But were there any giant stoner optometrist robots?

No but they did kill the only black Transformer!

I liked that they apparently decided that expensive CGI be damned--the movie's called Transformers, THEY ARE GOING TO FUCKING TRANSFORM. And they included the old cartoon Transforming noise.

It was so explodey and fun, I want to move into the theater and watch that movie on a loop, surviving on stale Milk Duds and watery foutain drinks.

Also, I believe a lot of that dialogue was ad-libbed by Peter Cullen, and it was deliberately hokey.

What happens when you sit next to someone you don't know...

I went to see that kick ass movie with two of my friends and a Finnish exchange student. I thought his leg was the back of the seats in front of me and lets just say that it was a little awkward when the lights came back on...
