I was a fan of the original 80's toys and cartoon so I guess already I was kinda into that sorta thing. Anyway when the new 2007 Transformers movie came out I suddenly reverted back to my childhood. It was neat seeing the whole thing start over again after all those years. Kids were getting all excited about them the way I used to. I think these new movies aren't bad but they are kinda loud and overwhelming at times. Some of the new designs still make me sick. Overall though I think Bay did allright. It could have turned out alot worse. I like them.

I thought they were very decent, to be quite honest.

i wasn't a fan of the first movie... the Transformer redesigns/reimagining were top-notch, as were the battle scenes, but the human acting was pretty lame IMO. I laughed my tail end off when that Shia LeBoeuf dude announced 'that's Megatron, he's the leader of the decepticons' because it was so freaking stupid, and i was definitely weirded out at the end with him and the chick making out on Bumblebee's hood with the other Transformers watching. Eww.

I didn't bother with the second because i figured it'd be more of the same, to be honest. I'll catch it when it shows up on TV someday, if there's nothing better on to watch. :3

I think that they are bot huge pieces of censored and is quite an insult to the audience and the "blockbuster" concept. And no, the "is a movie about fighting robots" excuse is not valid because that's never an excuse to make a stupidly written, bad acted, terrible edited, higly manipulative movie. Jurassic Park is a movie about "dinosaurs eating humans" and is 200% better than Transformers 1 and 2 together multiplied by 1000 with better actors, script, edition, pacing, lines and don't treat audiences like milking cows.

@buffalobob: Jurassic Park had a solid novel behind it, unlike the Transformers movies. JP is also one of the few movies where you can definitely say the movie was as good as the book (usually, the book is far superior), even though they were both somewhat different. :3

@theblackdragon - true very true, that's a big advantage but they could have made a way much better movie with transformers anyway.

I have yet to see either Transformer movie. Which is surprising considering I used to love playing the with Transformer toys back in the day.

All I can say is (without spoiling any details) is that both are decent; if you can overlook certain features.

I liked the first quite a bit but its far from my favorite movie (which is Star Wars the Empire Strikes Back). Revenge of the Fallen was good enough but I felt they tried dragging it out a little longer than need be.

@buffalobob: totally, but i'm just saying that it's kinda unfair to compare Transformers to the complete and total awesome that was JP. Transformers was crap IMO no matter what you compare it to... they could at least have cast some human actors that didn't suck.

1st Movie: Was pretty cool, even though it completely strayed from the 80's cartoon idea (for better and worst).

2nd Movie: A bad movie, but a mostly (and thankfully) forgettable experience.

The first one was good fun, great entertainment.

The second one was a horrible stupid mess of a movie. It was painful to watch, I walked away from the theater feeling totally drained. The writing was pitiful, the acting was laughable, and it took itself way too seriously. I was actually rooting for several of the characters to die in the end--the "good" guys, no less. That's the sign of a bad movie.

I actually just finished watching Revenge of the Fallen. It is probably one of my favorite movies ever. Never saw the first because for two reasons.

1.Bad reviews
2.Everyone I know who saw it said it sucked.

I can't wait for the 3rd in 2011.

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

The first one is ok, but the second one, I kept saying in my head "Less people more robots" NOT because I just wanted to see the robots but because the acting was just downright dumb that it was annoying... Course those stupid hillbilly robots didn't help much either.

I'm waiting for the third one where Unicron shows up and sounds like G.W. Bush Junior or something.

I used to play with Transformer toys and watch the cartoon as a kid as well, but the first movie sucks ass. I suppose it was semi-decent (to be kind), but there's no way I'm seeing the second one.

I watched the first and I thought it was the most overrated, mindless movie I had seen in quite some time. It was just over the top, NON STOP action for 2 hours and it got really repetitive and boring. Michael Bay has this stupid obsession with close up camera shots that never stay still. Mix that with a whole lot of CG transformers and never ending explosions and you get a movie that will give you a seizure and make you deaf. It was impossible to tell what was going on throughout the action scenes, which accounts for 90% of the movie.

In action movies, there's always one particular awesome scene that you remember which you look forward to when you watch the movie again...it's like a tease and waiting for it makes the scene even better. Transformers doesn't have that. Instead, it was like watching that particular scene over and over again for 2 hours.
