    From a technical standpoint DOTM wins easily, but I must admit sitting in the theater in '07 and hearing Cullen's Prime booming out the speakers gave me chills.

    But to be fair, I don't know what the ROTF and DOTM intros were like theatrically because "Fool me once, shame on you..." :)

    Hard to choose. The opening for TF1 is so mysterious (and chilling, in a way), but the DOTM opening is flat out epic. I honestly can't choose between the two.

    I actually enjoyed all three movie intros, but my overall favorite is DotM's. The Cybertron opening was very cool, and the progression to the Apollo 11 mission was really nice. I'm a fan of space travel, so I really enjoyed the integration of the movie's scenes with historical video and audio.

    You must be jesting? Seeing our home world again brought back so many memories, and instilled the desire within to finish the fight, once and for all...

    ROTF doesn't even rate next to the other two.

    I like the mystery opening with the Cube, and just hearing Prime's voice. A Less is more kind of thing, I guess.

    TF1 gave more of a mystical feel which I think a show about robots in disguise should have.

    I voted for DOTM because it really brought to mind the scale of the war that had been fought. And because it was an awesome in-flight battle sequence.

    However, because it wasn't in the poll, I couldn't vote for it, but just after TF1's intro is probably the most awesome moment starting a TF movie. Blackout transforming for the first time, almost step-by-step at first before he gains speed, really brings the suspense because nobody knows just what the hell is going on or what to expect. It really packs the surprise of seeing something that looks just like a normal Military helicopter suddenly shapeshift into a giant ass robot.

    let me redefine the question as:
    what would you prefer, a cube floating in space for 2 minutes while being narrated, random violence that doesn't even make sense for three minutes, or 8 minutes of epicness?

    DOTM since it ties humans and the great war well.

    I think they all have something going for them.

    The first movie had that mystery to it. As the camera moves over what we think is a massive alien world, the light glimmers across its surfaces and all that jazz. Then you see it's just a cube. Oh. And then motherf**king giant asteroids smash into it and send it veering off course!

    RotF gave us a bit more to chew on, visually. I really liked it because it didn't drag on, but it still gave us some awesome shots of the ancient Primes and the Fallen being evil. The scene left me wondering "Whoa, how are they gonna' play with this?"

    DotM had the most epic in terms of scope, scale and visual effects. It was basically like watching Star Wars, but with giant robots. And this one told a bit more of a story in it, seeing as how it was several minutes of the Cybertronian war, the space race, presidents, the moon landing and then the big reveal on Sentinel. It was throwing a lot of things at the audience, but not in a bad way. Just enough to make us think.

    Overall, I'd pick DotM based on action, spectacle, mystery, story and the last few moments as the camera pushes in on Sentinel with he "Sentinel Prime" score blaring! Brought back some of that mystery and magic.
