    Ive seen the 86 movie probably a thousand times. I popped it in thinkin it might be boring after DOTM.

    Dude, why does it feel like its still fresh as ever? I love this f###in movie. I see new things everytime.


    Megatrons gettin the upgrade from Unicron right now. So sick.

    I watched it last night with my 5 year old daughter for about the 600th time. She loves it as much as I do. I had to get her a Unicron figure so she wont take mine off my shelf.

    I'll throw it on to watch at least half a dozen times a year. That may not sound like many but I rarely rewatch films. Most of my non-TF DVDs I've only ever watched once so for a movie to get around six rewatches a year is pretty amazing for me.

    I remember when it first hit VHS retail here I was watching it like three times a day, every day for about three months so it's definitely the movie I've seen the most times. :p 

    It's just got great quality animation, even today, those pumping songs and music, and stuff like the Optimus and Megs city fight and the Megatron into Galvatron rebuild always give me a little surge when I watch them.

    The Transformers The Movie has been my favorite movie of all time since I first saw it. Where else does a giant metal planet eat another planet and several moons, and then turn into a giant robot and have to be defeated by the combined efforts of two enemy robot armies and their allies. There is nothing as epic anywhere.

    I just started listening to the 86 Theme by Lion. Holy crap i love it more than ever.

    The 86 movie is still the best movie and it's only a fraction of DOTM's running time.

    It's all about the robots, which makes it stand out among Transformers movies IMO.

    The movie's a classic. It was panned by critics, but the kids that watched it back in the day still watch it, and even people born after it's release do! In a few decades, I wonder if the same thing will be said of the Bay movies?

    It really touches me to know that there are others out there who consider the original Transformers movie to be superior to the live movies as well.

    Actually when it came out... There was a backlash due to the death of a certain leader!! People (moms and children) were ticked to say the least.. So much so that it eventually lead to that horrible abomination of an episode return of that certain leader... That honestly did it for me as it was just terrible! I like prime like the next guy, but that was just horrible... But yea TF the movie was awesome for me, especially the end!
