Hello everyone, I wanted to start a post to get everyone's opinions on the many different releases of the Original Transformers Movie. Ok so here it goes. When the movie first come out on DVD I bought this new version in addition to already owning it on VHS. I remember how much of a different it seemed to me, I mean come on back when DVD first came out it was a huge leap forward. I remember thinking about how much of an improvement there seemed to be. Yet this was how many years ago? Now fast forward to present day. I now own nearly every major release of the Transformers movie. I must have owned the First Release of the Transformers movie for about two years then I heard that there was a UK Reconstructed version. I researched it and found out it was true. This seemed to good to be true. Of course the Reconstructed version featured a totally new master and new special features but mainly I wanted it because it was to be the first time to see all of what the artist ever drew. Ive been somewhat happy with this version up until mind you once again a few years later. Then came the talks of Sony and BG doing there own version of it for the 20th anniversary. Once again I was thrilled I never even stopped to consider the fact that it was really just another first of the same film that I already had three versions of. This one featured what as to be an ever better transfer from the original negative. So I bought this one as well. Then I had this version for seriously lest then a year. In mid 2007 I found out of yet another UK release the Transformers Ultimate edition which I just recently purchased. Now I don't consider myself a hard time critic but enough so that I wanted to actually see if my money over the years has been justified and well spent. I started with the original VHS version and worked my way up to current. Figured I might as well do this right. So I watched the same segment on every film version. I watched from the Decepticon attack on the shuttle till the end of the battle between optimus and megatron. Ive watched each version closely comparing detail, clearness, sharpness, and color, with each version. Upon my general review I had to say that the ultimate version did appear to be the best master. But not by much. I am hoping to do a more thorough investigation this weekend with actual screen shots and scene comparisons much like they have done on some on-line reviews. But I want to know what everyone else thinks? am I the only one here that is still not entirely happy with the film? Not just the quality but the error's with the movie which have gone unfixed through out every version? Please leave some input. Thanks.
