I'm a dork, it's not something to hide from...i embrace it as a strength. of course this personality trait has made me a bumbling buffoon for the past year waiting for this movie to come out. of cousre, i'm a comic book fan so your X-men, spidermen, fantastic quatro, etc.. movies usually get a little excitement out of me...but they're not transformers.... i'd scream and hoot every time i saw a trailer for transformers, and i made almost everyone at work's life a living [bleep] talking about this movie (except for one loyal dork with whom i can discuss all things star wars, star trek, and transformers). no other movie has gotten this kind of anticipation from me....even movies that i think will be great usually just get a "i'll see that some time"
Finally it's out and i got to see it...and OH MY GOD was it great. there are some inaccuracies (what...something innacurate about a complete fantasy movie? yeah)...but most of those were licensing problems (bumblebee is not a VW beetle...instead he's a corvette...still cool) and the rest...well they're irrellevant compared to the rest of the movie..
all the CGI is FLAWLESS....or at least so cool that you don't see the flaws (it was reported that it took 35+ hours to complete a single frame...and if all the polygons used were laid end to end, they'd go to the moon and back a few times)....the plot leaves a little to be desired but....it's a freakin transformers movie...who needs a plot? it was a real treat having Peter Cullen voice optimus prime again...unfortunately the guy who did megatron's voice (Frank Welker ) didn't age well and his voice couldn't be used...they only got the original "transforming noise" in there once or twice that i could hear...but it sent chills down my spine when i did hear it...brought back alot of great times from my youth..
they set the movie up in such a way that they've garunteed a sequel (if not 2 or 3)...but it's not that far of a stretch to follow the original plotline to form a loose prediction
#1...they all fight, megatron get's hosed, starscream goes into hiding
#2...starscream comes back with "the boys", they all fight, Unicron (THE decepticon..you know..the one who transforms into a planet?) comes in, finds megatron and rebuilds him into Galvatron (bigger, faster, meaner) at the end of the movie
#3...Galvatron kicks the snot out of Starscream (either destroys him or just beats him into submission) then goes back to fighting autobots...might see primus (THE autobot...BIG guy...really big) make an appearance...who knows?
another fun rumor: there MIGHT be a voltron movie in the works as well..maybe out next year at this time
