The official “I saw Transformers the movie” thread

I just got back from the theatre and WOW. The Fifth Gen looked so damn good on the big-screen.

Oh, and the movie was good, too. lol.

Anyway, the movie was amazing. I highly suggest it for anyone who calls themselves a car enthusiast (specifically GM) or a Transformers fan.

Has anyone else seen it yet? What did you think?

Was it as good as it was in the Traliers?

Note to all those who have seen the Transformers movie!!!!...Please don't give anything away (spoilers) for the next week or so. For courtesy of those who don't have a lot of time on their hands to go out and see this movie....

EDIT: sorry for hi-jacking the thread like this...but I'm worried for everyone else as much as myself...

I go tomorrow at noon. I can't wait. Glad it's not a let down. Too much hype around the movie that I didn't want it to turn out to be an alien vs predator (although I liked it, many people felt let down.)

Saw the movie-- thought it was the usual, pointless Michael Bay crap.

I loved the work that ILM did in bringing the Transformers to life on screen! And "really" dug the old and new Camaro's too!

I would have gone just to see the Camaro, but the movie was pretty good too. The 5th Gen isn't going to get here fast enough.

IT WAS THE BEST MOVIE IVE EVER SEEN. I went yesturday opening night and i was so excited, when the movie started i started screaming. I couldnt control myself. Anyway to answer your question its a longer movie which is good, about 2 1/2 hours. The movie was what i would call the perfect movie. Awesome Cars, Hot Girls, Great Action, Hilariouis, and a Good Story.
Ive been showing pictures to my friends of the camaro and theyve said yea its cool. But they havnt really gone gah gah over it like me. After the movie they told me that car is amazing and they now understand why i like it so much. So the movie does a good job of showing off the car without overdoing it.
Ill stop talking about it. Just go out and see it. Its a movie for anyone.

The official “I saw Transformers the movie” thread

I'm reading a lot of good reviews and buzz over this movie from people who saw it early. Anyone seen it yet? I'm especially curious how much coverage the Camaro transformer gets.

It was a pretty good movie, but there could have been a lot more Camaro in it. All in all, it just made me want one even more.

Thumbs up The official “I saw Transformers the movie” thread

Caught a 12:45 EST showing, the movie is awesome, a must see. :eek: Tons of new Camaro shots. Make sure you stay threw the first half of the credits. Oh, and watch for hand outs after you leave the show. The theater I was at had posters and buttons, very cool…

In order to make all movie information regarding discussion, reviews, and Camaro Concept info as easy to find as possible, all threads have been merged to this one, single thread. Let's keep all the talk here.

This thread was kept due to it's name "The Official - I saw the - Transformers Movie thread."

I'm counting down the hours...we go at 7:40pm and I CAN'T WAIT!!!

No handouts here.

The movie was FANTASTIC.

Only 2 disappointments but I won't give it away. Let's just say I am a somewhat avid Transformers fan. I still think the movie was 11/10.

GO SEE THIS MOVIE!

Good to know! I was hoping that I would enjoy more than just the Camaro about this movie - looks like I won't be let down!

Wow, the movie was Awesome...easily the best of the year, I mean, even excluding the Camaro, which was great in it, so many camera shots directly on it...But I mean, wow, I mean, honestly...the only movie that in my eyes even gives transformers a run for it's money in best of 07 would be 300. But I think transformers takes it...

If you weren't gonna see it cause you thought it might be too cheesy...go see it...worth every penny.

well, i have talked to her about it previously, and im at the decision now that either I can keep modding/upgrading my 94Z and save a little each month ($1000-$1500 a month) or just dump everything into our savings and possibly be able to pay it off in 2 yrs ($2000-$2500 a month).

buuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuut theres also this:

FANTASTIC !!!
Without a doubt, this movie gets . (two thumbs up)

I'd love to get into detail, but I don't want to spoil it for everyone else. I'll tell you right now, it was awesome w/ Bumblebee and both Camaros. There was a great chase scene (I won't tell you with whom!!!). The Camaro alone did not make this movie. It was a combination of everything.

I loved Transformers as a kid. When I saw this trailer one day in the theater, I freaked out. In fact, I still remember seeing the trailer and I thought, "My God. I have to wait another year before it's out...good grief." It was worth the wait. There is the Camaro which is awesome. There's some great comedy, increadible CGI animation (at one part, the camara shot seriously looked like it was real life), a great love interest w/ Sam and the girl, and the theme of the movie was great. All around, this was the perfect movie. There was really only one part I didn't like.

Mindz, PM w/ those two parts you didn't like when you get a chance. I want to see what is on your mind.

And, as far as how well the movie will do at the box office, it's going to soar to the top. This is an excellent movie for all age ranges. There were 7 and 8 year olds yelling "Megatron!" the first time they showed him. There were older couples as well whooping and holloring. It is simply appealing to all ages. Even better, this was the first time in maybe 15 years of going to the movies that people actually applauded countless times and yelled in happiness throughout the movie. It was non-stop and I loved every minute of it whereas normally, I just want poeple to BE QUIET. People just kept clapping and going nuts...as was I!!! I'm going to see this movie again hopefully this week. This will be one DVD to own....which is what my wife said w/in the first 5 min. of the movie.

This movie was worth every penny. I will spend a bunch more pennies to go and see it again in the theaters. All in all, I'd have to say this is going to be my new favorite movie. Good job, Michael Bay and everyone else who worked to make this movie come to life!!!


GO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!

And how about the soundtrack? Not bad, huh?!

I don't feel like typing out the parts. They're just very minor and I found a few more things I didn't like as much as I should have. You guys have cell phones? Especially Zyreal, I have a few questions I need to ask ya. You can check my post in the spoilers thread or pm me your phone number.

EDIT: Tomorrow I see this with my girlfriend and a few other people. My second time, their first. I've been dying to show my g/f the car irl. She's going to the Rev It Up tour with me on Saturday, but I wanna see what she thinks of the car in the movie. I still haven't seen it in person, but the movie made it seem even better than the pictures that I've seen here. I'm just that much more infatuated with it now.
