The 80’s Cartoon world hits summer 2007 with Transformers.
Anyone who is anyone knows about Transformers and their transforming into cars, planes or whatever. There are, of course, the good guys: Autobots and the bad guys: Decepticons. They end up fighting on Earth over a cube. Things go Boom and fan boys giggle.

When I saw they were making another Transformers movie I giggled. When I saw the trailer I giggled. Then I saw the movie and through the whole movie I giggled. I grew up with them and I loved them. They were so massive to me when I saw them on the TV and to see them on the screen just as massive as I imagined them when I was younger is just *drools* awesome.

I told my brother it was just going to be a HUGE car commercial. I was right but what Transformers also is, is a great action movie that just the definition of what Summer Movie means. I want to see it again. I want to see them transform and I want to hear the transforming noise. Oh that noise I was all happy when I heard that noise on a trailer. I had a HUGE grin on my face when I heard it. I can’t explain how childlike this movie made me feel.

I see critics being horrible to yet another movie that they just don’t get. Their opinion on the movie doesn’t matter. I think they just like to be mean for the sake of being mean. It’s a summer movie what is there to expect an Oscar? Do not the critics know what a movie is any more? Movies are what keep people entertained and have them say, “That was worth my money.” Well Transformers is exactly that kind of movie.

Peter Cullen (voice of Optimus Prime) is the original voice from the cartoon. He is also the voice of Pooh Bear’s friend Eeyore. It’s interesting who the other voices are. Check it out. Shai LaBeouf, who plays Sam Witwicky, and Megan Fox, who plays Mikaela Banes, are a perfect pair to run around with the Transformers. Let me just say Fox is foxy…very cheesy but oh so hot…I mean true. Oh so true. This would be why her picture is there. It had to be. I couldn’t resist. Could you?

The Transformers themselves were just *passes out* sorry…they were eye candy great. SWEEEEET works too. Of course for tie-ins to commercials and such some characters were altered to different types of cars but for the most part they were very similar to the cartoon. They just look so freakin’ cool. Optimus Prime looked like he was in his prime. Bumblebee was my favorite. They were very well made and moved so smoothly and looked like they were there and I could own one if I went to the store and bought a car and I so wish I could and…and I’m rambling because I really, really like the movie and I just can’t stop thinking how SWEEEEET they looked.

I am beyond pleased with this movie. BEYONED and of course they set it up for there to be another Transformers movie. I will so own this movie. I said it within the first 20 minutes that I would be buying it and kept my word all the way to the end. I love the lines in the movie they had some really good funny moments and I love the action that kept me wanting more. Transformers has waken the Autobot inside me and made me want more. Give me more Michael Bay….GIVE ME MORE!
