    It has to me. I'm listening to The Strokes and the Mustang is my dream car. Has it to you?

    It's finally made me respect 3D animation. Never EVER thought that would happen. But 3D is a-okay in my book now, as long as it's used in really cool ways like it was in the TF movie.

    I also shamefully admit that although I loathe Chevy cars, the Camaro is a pretty nice looking ride.

    I showed my Grandmother the movie this week and she smiled widely; she had the same make/model as classic Bumblebee, she even had a yellow one. "He looks just like my old car! But mine didn't have strips!" she exclaimed. I asked her "What was it from the 70s?" "Yeah! That's my old car!" she was so happy. Later on we were talking and she said how her husband/my grandfather had ended up selling the car. And I told her that he cars they used were ones from the 70s, they just gutted them and restored them and repainted them. And although very rare- her old car could have been in that movie. It made her so happy. It was cute seeing her like that. :)

    The Saleen should be your dream car since that is what Barricade is...The new Mustangs are pieces of shit. I know from experience.

    On topic, the movie has made me reflect on what exactly makes a movie enjoyable for me.

    But do you let them roll around on the floor for added flavor?

    I can't really say the movie has influenced me, but the nice thing is it has given my son and I something additional to talk about and share something we both enjoy. Every time he sees a vehicle from the movie on the road he has an automatic Pavlovian response to say the name of the TF character.

    I've found myself becoming more detailed oriented when drawing Transformers, working in more mechanical details, and breaking the vehicle components into more pieces when creating new designs. Suffice it to say, the designs have influenced my TF drawing style.

    It has made me realize just how awful every TF tv show and fiction before it (sans BW, and parts of RID with Sky-byte in them) has been. The movie rocked my socks, hard, and I've never loved Transformers more since BW.

    I have seen the light and I know what truth is now. I am saved by Michael Bay and the Holy Spirit of Don Murphy has made me repent.

    The movie has shown me what a true epic of masterful storytelling should be. This movie speaks to the core, nay to the soul, of everyone that has watched this movie. Nary an eye did not have have a tear when Jazz was killed.

    I am behooven to spread the gospel of Hasbro so that others may also become converted and buy more TF toys, TF clothes, and other TF merchandise. It is upon us, my brethren, to spread the word and testify how we were saved.

    This movie influenced me to give up my old life completely. I divorced my wife because she spread blasphemy that the movie did not have a plot!! She thought that I was crazy to spend $900 on the rare pink version of G1 Starscream. I even quit my job because they looked down upon me writing testimony on this board at work.

    But it is worth it. Till all are one my brothers, till all are one...
