Boy, reading the review at B-Movie Film Vault left me feeling a little cold after the little rant about "how lame" Perceptor is. Man, doesn't anyone like that poor guy? I've always liked him because I liked Paul Eiding's voice, and it never fails to make me sad how often Perceptor gets needlessly picked on. I guess the episode of the show that was all about how he could be useful to the group in ways besides fighting went over a lot of people's heads.

(I would've posted mention of this in the B-Movie Film Vault's forums, but I'm not a member there, and I don't wanna join just to post a complaint about someone else's opinion of a character.)

Anyway, that aside, I wanna say I enjoyed both reviews otherwise. I'm not a big Transformers fan one way or the other. I did grow up watching the movie, though, and still have my original Betamax copy of it around here somewhere, taped along with the pilot episode for the series and the Go-Bots movie, which I would watch all the time as a kid. Now, sadly, our Beta machine is long since broken and I can't watch it anymore. I so need to get off my butt and go buy the new DVD. I almost got it a couple of months ago, but passed it up to buy more Star Wars figures. I don't exactly regret the decision, but I do wish I could've gotten both!

A friend of mine got me the 20th anniversay edition for my birthday however the 1st disc was scratched really bad when I opened it up. The disc had come loose and it skipped a bit when I was playing it.

they didn't have anymore in stock at Best Buy at the moment so I got a gift card instead.  I might just order it off of their web site at some point.

Kooshmeister:
    First off, sorry if my Perceptor-hatin' left you a little cold. That was not my intention. I was hoping that someone would get a laugh out of it, so I apologize. (However, I still do think he's pretty lame.  Wink )

    Secondly, I wish you did sign up in my forums to debate with me. I need more posters! If you want to rant or argue something, then by all means, come on over to the It Came From the Vault Forums and let me know.  TeddyR

Well, he's the geeky tech dude, he's supposed to be lame. ;)

Ah. Transformers.

I remember this.

And Weird Al was featured in the movie.  Kinda.  Dare To Be Stupid was played in a scene

After watching Michael Bay's ho-hum film, I felt a need to rewatch this the other day.  Perhaps the most shocking aspect, as Andrew talked about in the review, is the violence factor.  I did not see this film right away when it came out but I do recall my friends saying "this tranformer died, that trasnformer died" and the shock I felt.  The film also has the word "sh*t" in it.  So in a sense, the film was quite ballsy for a movie kids would drag their parents to see.

Hehe did anyone catch that the title song is the same one that Dirk Diggler & his friend were recording in 'Boogie Nights' ? Only difference being that the guy singing the theme song is one hell of a lot better than Dirk was (oddly enough Mark Wahlberg said it was hard to sing 'bad' in 'Boogie Nights' - he had always been a good singer so to sing off-key was new to him).

For all it's faults, it was still better than the 'G.I. Joe' movie-it answered a lot of questions..plus, Night Ranger on the soundtrack?-BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

"I have been trying the universal greeting on people for years. Out of the blue, I peer at them intently and say, "Bah weep graaagnah wheep ni ni bong." They either stare at me like I am a nut or else their eyes light up and they laugh out loud. "

 BounceGiggle I have done this myself so many times. It's become my standard greeting whenever I'm ant a Con or visiting a Comic or movie shop for the first time. If I get the later response I know I'm in the right place.  Glad to know I'm not the only one that dose it.  Thumbup to you.

I was always shocked at the amount of violence in this movie compared to the cartoon. I was 8 when I saw it in the theaters, I remember when Prime died some of the kids started crying. I was just kept thinking he's the main guy, the Big Bot they have to bring him back at the end, and when that didn't happen I was shocked and a little sad myself. Bluesad

I went to the cinema to watch this and loved it, I brought it on VHS when it came out and watched it to death and when it came out on DVD I brought that too.  when my little girl is old enough we are going to watch it together, much better than the Transformer films done by Michael Bay
