    In the first movie and the second game Starscream had a vocal voice, in an interview with Charlie Adler when he said, "We will deliver the final blow" he sounded like Dinobot from beast wars, but in the second movie he sounded like Tarantulas. What do you think?

    Yeah now that I think about it, SS did sound like Tarry from BW... Not so sure about Dinobot... but this confirms what I assumed after watching ROTF the first time. He did change the voice around.

    I don't really hear the Dinobot in the first one (granted, Starscream had only one line :D ).

    I definitely hear the Tarantulus in the second though.

    Unfortunatly the voice changed for both Megatron and Starscream in the 2nd movie.

    Shame too, I liked the voices much better in the first.

    But yeah, I hear Dinobot in the first, and Tarantulas in the 2nd

    I never noticed either one. I do love Adler's take on the character though, very fitting.

    I don't think it's worth our time to discuss Starscream's voice in TF1. It was so heavily processed, I honestly thought his 2 lines sounded identical to Megatron. I remember seeing TF1's behind-the-scenes and listening to Adler's unprocessed voice. The same lines. I thought to myself, "This guy is PERFECT! This voice is PERFECT! Too bad the processor took all personality out of it."

    I actually vastly prefer Megatron and Starscream's voices in TF2. The processor is still there, but scaled back enough so you can actually hear Weaving and Adler's (excellent) performances. I don't really hear Dinobot or Tarantulas, I hear Starscream.

    I believe Adler uses the same voice for GI Joe Resolute's Cobra Commander (which is REALLY FRIGGIN' COOL, by the way, since we once again have the same voice actor using the same voice for CC and Starscream!!!!) His Cobra Commander has just enough Chris Latta in it to pay homage to the original. The pacing of his words, his tone, the hiss-like rasp, it's all there. It's like Adler is basing his performance on his experiences with Latta (they worked together on G1 TF and GI Joe, after all) rather than Latta's actual performances. Or to put it another way, it's like Adler is performing CC and Starscream as if he were Chris Latta being asked to play the role with less comedy and way more genuine threat.

    I have...er...quite a lot of problems with the live-action TF movies. Starscream's voice is not among them. Adler's Starscream voice is basically exactly what Latta's performance would be, if he were asked to play Starscream as a believable real-life character who should be taken seriously, and that's pretty awesome. I don't hear any Tarantulas or Dinobot in the voice. I guess, if I really had to pick an existing voice, the type of voice sounds a bit like A/E/C Starscream, but I mean this solely in terms of "what the voice sounds like." If we're talking about performance and personality, Movie Starscream isn't at all like A/E/C Starscream.

    I think he sounds like Starscream.

    Yeah -this.
    They did a much better job with the voices in TF2. There was less processing done to each voice.
    I liked it that Megatron had the subtle growl to his voice but you could hear Hugo Weaving. In the first film Megatron could have been played by anyone.

    I hated that they took the processing out, I liked it more when they sounded like Alien Robots.
    Not actors reading lines, the voices were practically unaltered in ROTF.

    I think it's just Megatron and Starscream had a lot more dialogue in the sequel and more varied personalities: let's face it, Weaving's voice still sounds deeper than he does in real life, and Starscream was given more cowardly moments.
