I just came back from watching TRANSFORMERS... and I'm here to put all of your fears to rest. It is an extremely decent movie. It does have some cheesy moments, but they're either drowned out by something hilariously funny or by the intense action itself. A well crafted movie and while extremist fans will have SOMETHING to complain about, they shouldn't because this is a very decent effort to bring them to the big screen. I was extremely fearful of what I was going to see but my worries are all gone. Well done to everyone who made it, you've won over this Transfan.

Now make a sequel that's at least just as good. Don't screw it up, you've got a good thing going here.

damn right. Thats prob the first time we gotta something so big early. I watched it a few hours. IT WAS THE S**T!

I expected nothing coming into the movie, but within a few minutes, i was hooked, and it was like i was 10 years old again with a giant grin on my face during the whole movie.


My respect for Michael Bay has increased.

AUTOBOTS ROLL OUT!!

no, it's more of a psychological drama about the inner psyche of the transformers. in the trailers when Bonecrusher smashes into the bus, it's symbolic for his hatred for the autobots.

Oh and when I was watching the movie, there was this uber geek who was sitting next to me XD ...man, he was so tense, he was literally clutching his seats arm rests through the entire movie and not moving an inch. At one point I had to give him a sidewards glance just to make sure he wasn't experiencing a heart attack XD

Yeah, it was decent, not more, not less. The first half dragged on a bit, but the second half was better, albeit a little too Micheal Bayish (although that is to be expected right?).

Still, the giant robots did make it an automatic awesome.


I did like that Megatron was a good, old-fashioned evil villian. He wasn't just misunderstood, or too focused on something, he wanted to enslave and annihilate mankind, build a grand army, and take over the world. He rips his enemies in two, flicks innocent bystanders around, and just plain mean. Hugo Weaving does an excellent job with a really really dark voice (on the few lines he has).

Lynk Former
06-28-2007, 11:31 PM
Actually, I was glad the first half took it slowly, built it up and set things in place, without it you wouldn't be able too sit back and enjoy the second half as much. There were a lot of hurdles to be crossed to make the whole giant robot concept seem right for those who aren't familiar with Transformers like a lot of us are.

I saw it for free :) (Friend organised a party thingy at one of those luxury theater private sessions)

The dips and bread served were the highlight for me... I was suprised to see no evil Nazis in there, since Spielberg had his mangy claw involved in this flick...

But Ive never been a Hollywood fan, apart from what GL does...(who is actually pretty anti-Hollywood if you think about how he's made and financed his films)

so, bring on Indy 4...my next visit to the cineplex. In the meantime, I'll stick with the freaks and art students at the arthouse/foreign film theaters :D

I saw it yesterday at 12:30. Never really been a transformers fan or really into transformers (only transformers I've watched was the beast wars transformers series a few years ago and i really liked that) , but the movie was awesome. Very glad I got to see it at the theatre. The movie is pretty Non-stop action all the way through, and that's how i like my movies. I didn't watch much after the credits so i guess i'll see that when it comes out on dvd.

next movie i cannot wait to see is The Bourne Ultimatum.

also the preview to that ping pong movie had me lmao

Lightsaberboy

I thought the movie was great. a good balance between humor and action, showing how it could have a serious tone while making it kid-friendly.


I also loved all the voices, especially Barricade's. He spoke his lines with such authority. There were two things i wish the movie had more of. first it would be more english dialogue and personality for the decepticons. what they had was good, however. Starscream and Megatron's bickering was funny , although i wouldn't have mind seeing Megatron insult Starscream more, since it only hinted at Starscream's shadyness.

second would be more starscream in general, especialy since he and most of the decepticons come in the final act, and most of his scenes were already shown in the trailer. although it was funny seeing him flee at the end, so if there's a sequel, he'll prolly return as the self-appointed leader of the decepticons.

Heavyarms

Now that I've seen the movie, I want to get a nice wallpaper image from the movie of Optimus. The only ones (the standing in front holding a big gun and that darkened one ) are all I can find. And not the one with bonecrusher and optimus fighting. Some help, anyone?

Optimus Prime's voice was the best. Barricade? Hell no. Peter Cullen you can tell has been waiting almost 20 years so that he can voice Optimus Prime. And now that I heard him in that movie, I can't think of anyone else who could play that. Hugo Weaving's voice was altered a lot so you didn't feel like you were listening to V or Agent Smith, which helped a lot.

Lightsaberboy

well of course Optimus' voice was cool, but out of the others, I enjoyed Barricade's most. it's such an intimidating voice.

I saw most of it Thursday, and what I saw was pretty awesome. The only Transformers I was really into was Beast Wars, so no "raping" of my childhood. I plan to see it again this weekend so I can see the rest of it.

I also liked Barricade's voice. His lines were awesome.

Megatron reminds me a lot of the Power Rangers Movie villain.

If they make a sequel, I'll probably go and see it.

Only thing I didn't like was: when they killed Jazz. He didn't even have that much action :

But other than that, an excellent, excellent movie.

Also, did anyone else see the preview where it started out with a guys going away party, and turned into a horror movie? Didn't catch the name of it, all I saw was the date. Looked damn intruiging. Or however the hell you spell that word.

I just came back from seeing it as well.

I loved it. I never watched the Transformers and wasn't really into to it. So, I didn't really know what to expect. But, I enjoyed every second of it as well. I'd have to put in my top 3 favourite movies this year with Live Free or Die Hard and Hot Fuzz. I'll definitely have to see it a second time to catch anything I missed.

My thoughts exactly. Everything about it just worked. The over the top action sequences, the booming soundtrack, even the cheesy dialog were just spot on for the tone of the movie. Heck, even with Michael Bay's shameless self promotion - The guy shouting "It's like ten times cooler than Armageddon!" when the Autobots arrived, and Bumblebee being captured in the same runoff area that Nicholas Cage raced through in Gone in 60 seconds" I just chuckled knowingly because I got the jokes.

I really hope they do a sequel to this one.

Lightsaberboy
07-08-2007, 03:34 AM
I rewatched the movie and noticed some things that could be subtle hints to Starscream's character.

when Frenzy tells the other decepticons that the allspark has been found, he makes no mention of Megatron, yet Starscream goes to the hoover dam and attacks it. It'd be funny if he went there with the intention of claiming the allspark to himself, not knowing that Megatron was there either, but when Megatron came out, he started doing his suckup act to him.

also when he attacks the f-22's he only takes out a couple of them then keeps going back in disguise. right after that, a bunch of f-22's fire at Megatron. it's possible that one of them was Starscream in disguise, knowing that the decepticons were far outnumbered and this would be his chance to get rid of Megatron.

I agree with you 100%. In the director's cut DVD, they should have the rolling credits play to "The Touch" by Stan Bush....OR the "Transformer's Theme" performed by Lion! :p

I just watched it. ****ing awesome, nothing much to complain I just would've liked to see more of the Transformers.

There's just one thing I was wondering:

Why didn't Bumblebee repair his speech-system when he made The Cube smaller? Or did he and I just missed it?

Prime
07-10-2007, 11:27 AM
Here is my reposted core dump from the KOTOR area...disagree away!

In a Nutshell:
This movie didn't have everything I would have wanted, but it did have giant ****ing transforming alien robots from outer space blowing stuff up, so they are 80% of the way there.


The Good:
I will be the first to admit that I was one of those who did not like the new designs when they were first released. But damn, when you see those things in action, with a few exceptions (Megs and Starscream, I'm looking at you), they look awesome. And hearing Peter Cullen as Prime once again was super nostalgic for me, and made Optimus the character I know and love. The other Autobots also were very cool and reminiscent to their original counterparts (I actually liked this Ironhide a bit more than the original. Same with Bumblebee).

The action itself was at times simply unbelievable. ILM has, IMO, has set the bar once again for visual effects. It is one thing to create a fantasy universe like Star Wars, but it is another to bring such over-the-top creatures to life and have them actually perform as characters and interact so seamlessly with the human actors in a "real life" environment. Amazing. This alone makes the film watchable after multiple viewings.

As for the meatbags, the acting overall was OK and for the most part I thought they were entertaining. Sam was annoying at times, if only because he behaved like any teenager that age. :) But he delivered his often cheesy lines and humor about as well as possible. I found that he was likable because he was just awkward enough to be sympathetic. Mikaela was super hot, so full marks there. :p But her character was fine. The army guys had some good moments, both in terms of delivery and action scenes. Jon Voight as the Defense Secretary was pretty solid, even if his character got more unrealistic as the film went on. I love Bernie Mac, and his cameo made me laugh in his typical style. John Turturro also deserves some marks for making an otherwise straight faced character a bit more lively.

For all the complaints going in (mine included) about how much was changed and the usual "raped my childhood" mantras, I was surprised at just how much of the original concepts and elements they actually drew from the original material. There were a lot of things that non-fans would never pick up on. There were many lines taken directly from the old G1 movie and shows, with many spoken again by Cullen 20 years after the fact. Actually, I would say that Cullen's involvement goes a long way, probably more than the makers realize, to really making this Transformers for my demographic. He brings to life once again a character that for kids was up there with any from that decade.

The story spent a lot of time building up, but for the most part I didn't get bored at any point. It had its problems, but it served its purpose overall.


The Bad:
While this film does a lot of things right, it also is far from perfect. As good as the visuals are, the complexity of the transformer models sometimes made it difficult to actually make out what they were doing, particularly in action sequences. Combined with the occasional documentary-style shaky camera work, some things were just a blur. For a movie that is basically visual crack, these sequences did the film a disservice, IMO.

While the story is never the focus of an action movie such as this, the movie could have done with some editing. There was too much time spent with the government and hot scientist decoding signals and the like, which didn't really add much. This was at the detriment of some character development (in an action movie? Say it ain't so!) for the TFs, especially the decepticons. Starscream gets next to no screen time, and the rivalry relationship that will no doubt be a larger part in the future was only hinted at with one line. When certain bad things happen to some of the secondary autobot characters, it is hard to care too much since they are never a big part of the story. It is fine to tell the story from a human point of view, but there didn't need to be so many human points of view. :)


The Stupid: (more direct spoilers here)
There were plenty of WTF moments all through this movie, and enough plot holes to drive Optimus Prime through...

First of all, how is it that the only person that can solve the big computer mystery is some dance dance revolution-playing fat kid living in his grandma's basement? How is he better than the best the US government has to offer? And he doesn't do anything! What's more, Bay and co. thought it was time better spent to follow these chuckleheads around instead of Starscream?? They literally didn't add anything to the story.

Why was Tree Boy in the movie at all?

Why does the allspark only create evil robots? If that is the case, why wouldn't the autobots just want to destroy it in the first place?

Can a transformers really only be taken out by humans in the manner that Captain Lennox does? I mean, come on...

I don't mind product placements, but come on...

Etc.

Fanboy stuff:
Is anyone talking about Optimus having a mouth these days? Just wondering...

After going through the effort of getting Hugo Weaving to voice Megatron, I really couldn't tell it was him. Why not save some money and go with Frank Welker? That would have gone a long way to making Megs feel more like Megs. Not that he did a bad job, but he didn't add anything to it.

I think the cola machine transformer shot soda can missiles. :)

After all the comments from animators about not wanting mass shifting in the designs (thus the huge size differences), they go right out and pull the biggest mass shift of all time. Even if it could fold up like that, wouldn't it still be ****ing heavy? Sam runs around with it like it is his lunch!

Why does cold affect Transformers so much? I mean, they fly through outer space, and then can survive re-entry...

Final Word:
A movie that delivers on what it intended to. A great trip down memory lane for some and fun popcorn movie for everyone else.

8/10 for Fans, 7/10 for non-fans.

well they said all modern technology was derived from studying Megatron, so I figure they studied his hardware and reverse engineered from that. since he's a decepticon, that means all the technology they create are of decepticon origin, so that's why when they come to life, they are evil. i know it's a stretch that everything seems to come from him, but meh.

I'll likely be going again this weekend, so I will see if I can get an exact quote :)

Actually, here's what Robert Orci, one of the writers, had to say about it.

A: 1.) Prime intended to use the Allspark to repower Cybertron as it was intended. Megatron wants to abuse it by creating Transformers directly, which makes souless, primal Transformers.

which is weird because later on down the interview, he says

A:
1.) It is meant to power Cybertron, not adapt human technology. Also, since all earth's tech is reverse engineered from Megatron, maybe that affects the outcome, too.

then again, alot of that interview didn't seem to be too informative.

I kinda enjoyed the fighting scenes, they were the most intense ive seen in a while. Although i did find the whole movie to be a little draggy. But overall, its a cool movie that deserves to be watched.

And no, i didnt cry when optimus appeared on screen. :D

Is there any other kind?

Saw it again last week. The line in question was something like:

"The microchip, cars, space travel, all reverse engineered from NBE1"

Or something...

well in the interview I gave on the last page, Orci said it was because the allspark brought the machines to life as souless, primal transformers. then again he later goes on to say that reverse engineering from Megatron might've had something to do with it, so who knows.

who's to say they're all evil though. xbox360 just sprung legs and didn't really attack anyone. the escalade just came to life and wanted to hug the first person it saw as a thanks for bringint it to life, and mountain dewbot was just using aggressive marketing tactics.
