I LOVE THE TRANSFORMERS!!! Now that I got that out of my system, we can move on.

I have been a die hard Transformers fan since I saw the very first episode of the cartoon air in the US back in 1984. I waited over 20 years for a live action version that everyone just knew Michael Bay was going to screw up, but the first film was probably the best of the trio. That being said, I did like all three movies, but certain things need to be said.

  1. If you're a fan of the G1 cartoons and comics, understand this: the director and writers change some things so the rest of the world that aren't fanboy/comic book nerds (like myself) can still enjoy the movies. Yes Opitmus Prime and Bumblebee had some minor to very major changes, but at least they got the legendary Peter Cullen to reprise his role as the voice of one the most iconic and heroic characters in fictional history.
  2. Hate all you want on the franchise, but the later 2 movies are on the list of highest grossing movies ever ('Transformers: Dark of the Moon' is ranked 6th, while 'Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen' is ranked 38th) and the total amount of revenue grossed by all three is over 1 billion dollars!!!

Now on to the latest installment. It's set for a June 27th, 2014 release and from the looks of the latest trailer, it's going to have a few things previously unseen in the prior movies. For example: the Dinobots AND Optimus' G1 truck form. That's all I'm going to say. If you want more... just watch the above trailer!!!
