    why are so many fans judging the movie strictly against the original series?

    the new film is not generation one-based,it's more generation one-inspired.
    it's like RID haters who couldn't stand optimus prime as a fire engine.(i won't even bring up the issues g1 purists have with the beast era.)
    why can't ratchet be a green-ish search and rescue hummer?
    why does ironhide have to be a red van?

    if you don't like the new film,that's one thing,but,guys,try to judge it on its own merits and faults,not its differences from other tf serieses.

    opinions on this?arguements?

    You called me a G1 purist in the other thread.. but I'm far from it. I have seen the movie 2 times already and respect it for what it is, TRANSFORMERS 2007. Just as I respect G1 for G1 and so on. I just think that the mvie should've stuck to a more traditional type Megatron. Bumblebee looked better as a Camaro, and Jazz looked awesome as well. My favorite, probably more than G1 was Armada anyways.

    why? i thought this was a legitimate discussion topic.i didn't mean to accuse anyone of anything negative.i was trying to get people to judge the movie on its own,or at least understand why some refuse to.

    "how did bay do anything to anyone's childhood without a damn time machine?"is my reply to whoever started the "raped my childhood" garbage.
    scraggin's gone for a reason...

    decepticon665, the reason you're probably going to get a slew of sarcastic and mean responses is because this subject has been done, and redone, and redone to death, over and over again. If you click back through a few pages of the movie discussion forum, you'll see more than enough conversation of why people hold different viewpoints on the "G1-ness" or "not-G1-ness" of the movie, as well as lots of spite and bitter frustration between the members here regarding this subject.

    I think I speak for a few folks when I say that we are tired of it. The general consensus has been that the movie was generally well-accepted, enjoyable by just about anyone who's willing to have an open mind about the film, and - at least, it seems to me - splitting the hairs of "Is it G1 or not?" is really a moot point at this point - the film is what it is and, good or bad, it's a unique entity in the Transformers universe...and it's makin' Hasbro some money.

    Because I think the G1 Bot designs were the shit!

    Where as the Transformers 2007 Bot designs were shit.

    My opinion of course.

    sorry if this has been done to death.i was just hoping to get a handle on why the differences between g1 and the 2007 movie are so painful to some.i don't see it myself.

    if the only reason anyone replies to this is to say that this is a duplicate thread,it mat as well be shut down and deleted now...

    I've always had a friend of mine explain to me that "It's G1 characters but not a G1 plot".

    I think what he meant when he said that to me is that we didnt get a situation where Megatron and his possie would raid some energy facility and acquire glowing cubes as their objective.

    Ugh... no another thread like this...

    I remember a time when there was such a thing as intelligent conversations on the internet. Those were the days.

    If you don't have anything to add to the conversation then it doesn't make it ok to Troll. In fact it will get you a warning.
