    Okay, I"ve read enough hate threads and posts on here to last me a lifetime. Times like this make me miss N&P :) . My opinions on why the movie might be good are:

    Michael Bay is attatched- I liked the Bad Boys movies, and of course The Rock.
    Stephen Spielberg : He's won just a few Oscars, and with the exception of War of the Worlds, I have really enjoyed just about every movie that he's been involved with.
    THis is based on a Hasbro property: I grew up with GI Joe and Optimus prime, I think they've done a really good job lately with Star Wars, Joe, Transformers, and they were smart enough to buy companies like Fisher-Price, Wizards of the Coast, etc.

    My final reasoning that this movie might be good is this:

    This is aalive action movie about Transformers!!! I mean, it's going to have Optimus Prime and Megatron duking it out for the first time on the big screen in 20 years!! Okay, so it might be a new continuity, they might look different, but WHO CARES!!! It's freaking transformers for God's sake!!!

    I am so getting flamed/insulted for this

    I read some more bits of the script today, and I gotta say, it's loaded with some awesome action scenes that I can't wait to see played out on the big screen.

    Even if it wasn't Transformers, I'd be psyched to see it.

    *hopes that last comment won't lead to angry hate posts of "But it ISN'T Transformers!!11!")

    I'll say that I'm looking forwad to it as well. Speilburg only annoys me because his movies run about 1/2 hour longer than they should, but they still are good. Bay has some good credits under his name: The Rock and Armageddon were fun movies.

    I'm not an avid movie goer. I go to be entertained, not Oscar hoping.

    And what's funny is that we always see this. Beast Wars wasn't G1, Beast Machines wasn't G2, Armada wasn't, Energon wasn't, and Cybertron wasn't. This isn't either. What everyone seems to forget is that Transformers is a general term used to define the notion of giant robots turning into stuff. That's all.

    I too am still looking forward to this film... but I am hoping that those elements I dislike won't distract me too much.

    But Beast Wars and Beast Machines were in fact G1. G1 TNG, but G1 never the less.

    Yep, and I can't believe I forgot about the fact that Cullen is in it, yet another reason why it might be good.

    Yeah your gonna be flamed, but not by me. While I don't have high hopes for the film, I will say that I like the optimus design and I'm willing to give it a chance.

    Can you - hell, can ANYBODY in this fandom - go a thread without offering a "but, here's a counterpoint with the purpose of striking up an argument" ?

    I'm happy that Transformers is getting a big-screen, live-action treatment and that the general premise is similar to what I remember as "transformers" from when I was a kid. That's about all.

    You said can Anybody go without adding a But into their response. Considering I'm on the "haters" side, I did that. Just answering your question was all.
