    I can't decide. I like both of them equally.

    '86, I tear up when I watch it now. I just have such an emotional reaction to it, maybe because of nostalgia. I did cry from excitement when I was sitting in the theater for 2007 movie, but once the movie started I was more dizzy from shaky camera and bored than anything.

    Easily 2007. The original movie was just bad, killing off characters and replacing them with bland ones. The 2007 was when TFs really came alive.

    Also, realistic violence > cartoon violence.

    i have to admit the 2007 movie was pretty sweet, but the g1 movie has it's originality. For a cartoon in 1986 it wasnt that bad...

    Honestly, the only thing 1986 has going for it was nostalgia, and Prime's death. It's impossible to like it without love/familiarity for the series the preceded it.

    To be honest I can't decide both have their good and bad factors.

    The 1987 movie is legitimately a bad movie.

    Both had their strong and bad points, but both were also enjoyable. So can't decide for me.

    G1 movie(1986) because it has a better story overall and the story wasn't around humans...
    I don't go to a transformers movie to see humans unless they are the army dudes!
    But I'm not saying I didn't enjoy the 07 movie!

    I just wish we had a Beast Wars movie..... DON'T MENTION BEAST WARS II THE MOVIE... THANK YOU VERY MUCH.

    Easily 1986. I enjoyed the 2007 movie the first few times, but it no longer holds up well under repeat viewing. The 86 movie introduced my favorite TF cast and is a wholly enjoyable experience that I watch almost weekly.

    Torn.

    First off, to be honest and objective none of these are actually good movies (but that doesn't stop me from watching them- again and again and again).

    I LOVE the bots in the new movies, but we don't get nearly enough of the good stuff in the new ones, and when Tformers aren't on screen doing cool stuff it's really hard to ignore just how bad the movies are.

    The 86 movie isn't quite as cool if I compare the bots- but at the end of the day it's just 90 mile an hour robot carnage the whole way through, and that's really what I want to see.

    So until somebody finally manages to make a truly great Transformers movie, I think I have to go with 86 just because there's more of what I love.

    I'll take a hokey cartoon movie with characters I actually cared about than a poorly written and directed shitstorm.

    The robots got way, way more characterization in the 1986 film than they did in the 2007 one. For that reason alone, the 1986 film is superior.

    The 2007 movie, which I thought was an awesome introduction to live action TFs....

    The 86 movie suffers from pointless deaths of too many main characters, though I'm a fan of Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime.
