    This movie is for the guy I know who still sleeps with his 36" Optimus Prime.

    It really pisses his wife off.

    I saw that preview in the theater and was speechless. It looked like they were making a serious movie about Transformers. Didn't seem tongue in cheek or anything. Strange.

    Because kids don't know who the fuck Optimus Prime is anymore.

    Indeed. I laughed my ass off when I heard him singing that. Some of the guys in my shop took a while to believe it; they thought it was an original.

    No, I don't look forward to this film. Yes, I enjoyed the animated one. 20 years ago.

    You'd be surprised.

    It is. Live action.

    I actually think it's going to be okay.
  6. I know this because I have the soundtrack on CD.

    [long, painful pause]

    I'm going to kill myself now.

    You also burned my teddy bear on the stove, jerkoff.

    Guilty as charged, and admittedly, a total dick move. I believe the bear's ass is singed to this very day.

    But let go of your hate ... you'll feel a lot better. :D
  9. It is, indeed, Transformers. [/shamefont]

    It's a marketing idea that has already been proven successful once.
    So you launch some toys in conjunction with the movie and you might strike gold a second time.

    Fuck, now I can hear it in my mind. Some things you just can't shake, no matter how many years go by.

    Now that I think of it, I think we left Optimus Prime's final moments out of that thread on great movie deaths.

    And this is what we get when people keep paying to see movies based on comic books. I guess they figure the kids who liked the original stories 20 years ago are ready for a serious, live-action version now.

    My Optimus Prime is only 4". It occasionally transforms to 6".
