    What's your favorite?

    2007: The cube gliding through space being pounded by space meteors before beginning it's rapid descent to Earth.

    2009: Primitive warriors hunting a tiger before setting their eyes upon the Sun Harvester, then getting attacked and killed by The Fallen.

    2011: Decepticon fighters chasing The Ark through Cybertron, The Ark getting shot down and crashing onto the surface of the moon, Armstrong and Aldrin arriving on the moon to investigate the crashed ship and gazing upon the dead bodies of Cybertronians, the epic zoom-in on Sentinel Prime before the movie's title is formed.

    I'd love DOTM more if there was no Peter Cullen's narration. It would give it more mystery.

    But even then DOTM still has the best one.

    Visually - DoTM. But overall I have to go with 07, just because I love the narration.

    I often imagine what it might've been like with Sentinel giving the narration during the war for Cybertron sequence. I like the continuity of having Optimus provide all three, but I think it would've been fitting to have this mysterious/unknown-character/Leonard Nimoy voice providing the exposition in the intro. Would've provided a bit more depth to his actions; he was so driven to try and revive Cybertron at any cost, so hearing him say things like "A desperate mission. Our final hope. A hope...that vanished." would've been fitting. Then Optimus would begin his narration of "In the years since our arrival..." later.

    07 for me. It had more emotion to me.

    07 had best narration, DOTM had best visual.

    ROTF was good, but pales in comparison to the other two intros.

    I think that they were all good. I loved Mr Cullen's narration

    I liked DOTM the best. The sombre music and Optimus' mourning the fate of Cybertron as we pan down from the stars to the battle raging upon the planet, explosions, bullets and death everywhere, before the Ark attempts it escape, only to be lost to the depths.

    07 felt the most magical and wondrous... this is a Transformers movie and it's happening.

    Those feelings aside, DOTM's whole opening was pretty awesome, some amazing visuals and a great intro to the story. It was probably the best opening scene, although perhaps not as filled with reverent awe.

    The narration by Prime/Cullen was terrific in all of the movies, but I guess I liked it best in 2007.

    My jaw dropped when I saw DOTM's cybertron opening. The 3-D was also killer in that scene
