    Hello there. I've just wasted a perfectly good hour watching a movie on SyFy channel called "Transmorphers". It was the dumbest movie I've ever seen. It looked like it was pretending to be Transformers or something. All the robots were evil, built from us by reverse engineering from Roswell, blah, blah, blah.
    None of the bot's had any personalities, or anything. It was really stupid movie with very low-budget CG graphics and special effects.
    Anybody else seen it? The TV guide description said it was a 2009 film.
    What's your opinion on it?

    I hated it. I couldn't even get through it all! Me and my brother rented it around the time Tranformers left the theaters. Halfway through the video and the sound were off! That was the clinching point, as we both had hated the acting and, if I recall correctly, the CGI wasn't all that great either...

    I was shocked to learn there was a sequel

    Yea, the CGI is very crappy. Looked like it was done by my 8 year old nephew! LOL!
    I wonder if their sequel was an attempt to improve on the first one?
    Anyway, it was indeed very stupid and I quit watching it. Right now it's just background noise upstairs.

    I had that sound issue too, but it was because it was on Dolby 5.1 and I had only stereo sound on my TV. A simple switch to stereo on the options menu fixed it right up.

    What the fuck are you all on about? Transmorphers is a masterpiece. Enough said.




    And yes, that was sarcasm, for those with slow minds.

    Typical shit movie that tries to ride on the succes of a big blockbuster movie.
    Believe it or not, people actually fall for this shit all the time. That's the reason old movies or cartoons get new covers once their big budget counterparts hit the big screen. Oblivious people will be tricked into thinking it's the 'real deal'.

    Personally I don't really care if the people who make this stuff are really great guys (I bet they are), from an artistic point of view, ripping off like this is the worst insult.

    But hey, I guess if they're having fun making this stuff, and if there's actually people wanting to see it..they should go right ahead.

    I think at the point the sound issue arose, me and my bro were too pissed that we wasted the money even renting the movie to even bother with the fix.
