    ...just as movies such as "Pokémon the First Movie" and "The Rugrats Movie" are now fondly thought of as childhood memories by today's teenagers.

    What do you guys think?

    I think it'll be like the 1986 TF movie is for us older fans. We look back on it with nostalgia and can still enjoy it even though we know what crap it is. :D 

    I still love the first Bay TF movie.

    RotF... not so much.

    Wait... who the hell likes the Rugrats Movie?

    Rugrats in Paris, maybe, but the Rugrats Movie? It killed Rugrats for us!!!

    I never saw Rugrats in Paris after the damage the Rugrats movie did to me.

    Agreed.

    Rugrats in Paris was the better.


    On topic the movie I like was The Aristocats.

    I think kids will look back and wonder what exactly they thought was so great about the films. Some will realise that they were young and easily entertained by shit blowing up.

    I think they were entertained by all of the awesome giant robots fighting, a theme that is prevalent throughout the Transformers franchise.

    Hang on, let me make a note of this. Robots fighting is a prevalent theme in Transformers history, you say? What other words of wisdom do you have, oh great sage?

    I just had to lol at this being an "old timer". I was 22 when Rugrats came out and had my first daughter on the way.But back on topic, yes I think the younger generation will look back on it like I do on the '86 movie. I have 3 girls, ages 11, 10, and 5. They all LOVED both movies and I imagine when they are my age they will look back on those movies the same way I did when the '86 movie came out because I was around the same age as they are now.

    I liked both films despite being a 'serious film' fan who would rather Orci and Kurtzman stay on the films instead of Bay, so I often wonder how I'll see the films in future. Will brilliance like "The Autobots, they're here to hunt you" continue to outweigh things that would never have been there like "Cuz you're a pussy?" I'll certainly always like the movieverse more than RiD, Dreamwave G1 and the Unicron Trilogy, and I'll get ROTF on Blu-ray, but if I would I buy them if I hadn't seen them in cinemas? I don't even have Tim Burton's Batman films on DVD, I only bothered to buy Nolan's films (and this coming from a big Burton fan).

    A decade ago, I was entertained by Batman and Robin. I look at it now as one of the worst comic book movies ever. I bet the smart movie goers in ten years from now will feel the same with the TF movies.

    I hope we get a reboot in less than ten years from now.

    James Cameron, please be the Chris Nolan for the TF movie franchise.

    like how we were with the 86 movie? or i am now with the power rangers movie(it's terrible, but i love it for nostalgic quality)? people often look back and realise things in their childhood were in reality pretty awful, poorly made and kinda pointless, but the good memories stay with them, and they idealise it. which is where the geewunners etc come from. and i don't blame them. love what you want, hate what you want, don't spoil it for the rest of us though.



    or the spider monkeys will come for you

    ^ Power Rangers Nostalgia Alert! If that movie were to come on tv right now I would probably watch it.

    Kids will grow up and look back on the TF movies... and be just like many of us and say "what the hell was I thinking to enjoy this so much... ahhh oh well, good times though!"

    And lo, legions of MOVEEWUNS will descend upon the fandom, bitching and moaning about the new toyline "NOT BEING MOVEE-LIKE!11" and "OPTIMUS SHUD HAVE FLAMEZ!11" And thus, the new, stylized toyline featuring a show with well-written plots and great toys will die a needless and early death, much like its similarly unfortunate predecessor, Animated, did.
