    Movie when no Transformer is on-screen: very disappointing.
    Movie when at least 1 Transformer is on-screen: fun.
    Movie when Optimus Prime or Megatron is speaking (with the exception of the last few lines in the movie): great.

    My biggest hang-up, before and after, is imagining how Unicron might have looked with the same special-effects make-over.

    What's with all the unnecessarily Australian characters appearing in American movies and tv shows? It used to be that they needed a reason (or an excuse, at least) to include openly Australian characters. Now they throw them in without a word of justification. Boo!

    Pros: great special effects
    transformers in it
    attractive females

    Cons: too many characters
    gaudily painted vehicles
    irritating lead actor
    not enough whining from Starscream
    potential crisis silly rather than scary
    secretary of defence firing a shotgun at a deceptacon

    All in all, I enjoyed the movie but much preferred the earlier cartoon movie.

    He was the main reason I was going to go see it. The inevitability of it all.

    That's what I thought too.

    We enjoyed it overall. I have quibbles, but then I have quibbles about every film since I saw Last Year at Marienbad.

    You have your head stuck so far up Uranus! :steam:

    Better technology with massive special effects and explosions are what make me more curious about movies.

    Better Technology = Better Movies!

    To say otherwise is naive. Who cares about the story? The basic story in practically every movie is usually mundane (a dance between good and evil). And who the hell cares about the characters? I wish they would all die!

    Just imagine all the Disney cartoons being live action film with special effects! That would be bliss for me!!! And I'm one of those people who thinks that The Incredibles should have been a live action film with CGI.

    Did they mention the larger though? You can't have an Aussie without the tinnys!

    Hey don't laugh. Give them tungsten penetrators and they'd work a treat. Shotguns can blow through engine blocks with the right ammo. They're a lot larger bore than any rifle you can tote.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?

    I wondered why Sdalek didn't wear the Japanese Autobots t-shirt I got him in Winnipeg a few years ago. I noticed other folks had their Autobots shirts on.
