More than meets the eye  

Aside from his name being Sam instead of Spike, of course.  But other than that....

A little clearer.

I agree with Nenti. Go see Transformers. Like, now. And tomorrow.

I wanna see it again.... (First movie I've seen in a couple years that made me say that while I was leaving the theatre)

*grins evilly*

I need to know when you find out that'll be available to own because - well - I need to own it.

I also badly need to go see it again.

Like, now. I just can't justify another $14.50 to see it.

I still get all squee-ified when I think about it.

I didn't even have a problem with Bumblebee being a Camero until I thought about it in the ending credits. He kicked far too much ass to worry about that. (although Jen pointed out that aside from Jazz, all the Autobots were American-made cars. Being a Bug woulda made BB German. Interesting bit of politicking there...)

And I REALLY liked that they put some thought into what kind of consequences would result from beings that large having an all out battle in the middle of a city. People inside the buildings scrambling to get out of the way of impacts and such. These are things that won't be nearly as effective on the small screen...

Re: Yeah
WHAT?!!!! No hybrids?! Sorry, but that's plain un-American!

Ah, but that's the whole point!
They were ALL hybrids! Part car, part robot! No gasoline wasted there - these puppies run on Energon. =)

For those who watched and said "wait, that sounded like....was that...?"

...the answer is yes. Which just adds to the cool.

Plus, Megatron was played by V. =)

Re: Also
Oh yeah - I was thrilled to find that out from the beginning. It was a bright spot in a number of fears I had about the movie - least of which being that Megatron wasn't going to be a gun. But then again, someone pointed out later that "How evil can you be if you have to wait for someone in your ranks to use you?"

Bumblebee was a Camaro, btw, because Volkswagon refused to let them use the VW likeness for Bumblebee. That was early on. I forgave them. Barricade being a mustang though... oooo boy.

It's Spelled "Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuude"
When you get the "Surf's Up" DVD, you'll understand.
