Some good lines there, and some real swill as well.
Huh, a bunch of those lines really fit the dialog that is "corny, yet heroic and sage-like" of Prime.
I admit though, I'm shocked "Do a barrel roll!" actually made it.
Good lord, how did some of those make the final 30? "Do a barrel roll?" "These pretzels are making me thirsty?" Seems like the contest is not being taken very seriously.
Wow! Those were, ummm, awful, yeah.
Geez I should have entered. "Rachet, we need Grimlock"
Wow. Either old movie rehashes, or absolute crap.
I hope they find out about that stupid "Do A Barrel Roll" line. Maybe someone with some sway should explain to whoever's holding the contest that its just some 4chan troll trying to cause a ruckus.
They're currently using that line to spam and harass the Tom Green Internet Show. Not that I particularly like Tom Green, but its so childish and idiotic to raid the guy's show with stupid calls saying "Do a Barrel Roll"
Honestly, if that line makes it in, I won't see the movie in the theater. I'm all for giving the movie its fair due, despite the negative hype, but if the people in charge of the contest can't do ten seconds of google-ing to see that this line is just internet trolling, then I'm not giving them a dime. I would rather Prime said the pretzel line, honestly.
"These pretzels are making me thirsty!"
Indeed. No originality, and poor attempts at jokes. The jokes aside, it's just sad that all some people could come up with was a rehashed line from TFTM.
I liked the handgun one.
There's a few Primeisms in there that aren't just rehashes.
Take out the 86 movie rehashes plus the crap and you have about 3 decent lines. I do like the barrel roll line though, I can see it fitting in.
im a G1 loyalist so i wouldnt mind a bit of G1 nostalgia in there.
But yeah, some of those lines are just a bit too cliche and corny.
just keep it simple like...."Autobots, transform and roll out!"
thats all i need 2 hear Cullen say and i'll be a boy in the 80's again
Wasn't "Do A Barrel Roll" from Star Fox?
There were some ok ones...
Why should it? It's not like the movie is going to win The Academy Awards or anything.
And they *still* can't spell "sentient"...
I'm amazed we didn't get stuff like "WIIGII!!!" or "F*ck Pat Lee!" in there.
The handgun one is the only line that any decent editor wouldn't turf out without a second thought.
Yeah, if those are the entries that made it, I can't even begin to think how bad the ones that got rejected were. I'm surprised they would even post 90% of those lines for the public to read. It's definitely not helping the cause of trying to make people take this "kids toy movie" seriously.
And for the movie makers to say they are not making a G1 movie, and then have at least half of their choices lifted directly from the G1 movie...
