    Watched it for the the first time last night. I thought the action and effects were really cool. Maybe I'm just getting old, but if there was ever a (non-Skinemax) movie made specifically for 13-year-old boys, this is the benchmark. I know it's a cool voice and all, but Optimus Prime seemed like he was channeling William Shatner.

    The overgrown child in me agrees with you. I really liked the movie, but it's not exactly meant for deep thinking.

    I watched "Gone with the Wind" a couple weeks ago and thought it was ok...

    I was colossally bored by Transformers... The effects were great, but the plot was horrendous and Shia LaBeouf was insanely annoying...
  5. Did people honestly go to Transformers--a movie centering around giant robots beating the piss out of each other--and expect some tremendous, intricate plot or phenomenal character acting?

    The fact that it's a Michael Bay movie should tell you something about it going in...

    Loved it. Bought it the day it came out. Makes me feel like a kid again. Will watch it several times this weekend. If you don't over think this one, you can have fun watching it.

    I was a fan of the cartoon.

    The flick gave me a headache. I blame no one but myself, since I shelled out to see a Michael Bay movie.

    Exactly. I enjoyed it the first time through and I'm looking forward to watching it again when it makes it to HBO. Just turn off the deep thoughts and enjoy the giant robots, the hot girl and lots of shit blowing up.

    hb, I was a fan of the cartoon, too. I thought they captured just enough of it to get by and the rest was just carnage.

    I rented it, thought it was OK. Good effects, but couldn't they have found a guy who was as hot as Megan Fox or whatever or name is. I mean Zac Efron's (sp) the right age. geesh :D

    I have no problem with mindless popcorn movies or even most Michael Bay movies (I thought "The Island" was underrated). I'm all for checking my mind at the door, throwing my hands up in the air and just giving in to the fun. It just really hard this time around.

    However, Megan Fox was very easy on the eyes. Yowsa ...
