    The first one is considered a CLASSIC Now? That's depressing.

    World War Z.

    The only depressing thing about it is that it makes me feel old.

    I vote Transformers.

    Transformers. Never saw the first one in theaters. My ex went into labor the day before and for some reason, taking care of a newborn supersedes seeing a movie in theaters.

    Some people grew up on it and at this point it’s as old as anyone who’s 13 right now. I can see why it’s called that.

    I may not like the bay movies, but it’s More entertaining than world war z at least

    WWZ is a better film to be honest, but I voted for Transformers out of loyalty. And a twisted desire to see big-screen Bumblebee wee on John Turturro again.

    Interstellar, Wolf of Wall Street, Grease, and Transformers got my votes for round 1. I really hope Transformers or Interstellar wins

    I got into Transformers as the first movie came into theaters, and wasn't able to see one in theaters until DOTM. I would love to see the 07 movie like that!

    That is if theaters are still around after all this is over.

    For all the flaws of the 2007 movie, it was still far better than WWZ.

    Especially with regard to how it handled the source material.

    Even with all dislikes to Bay movies, first movie is always win.

    Never understand why WWZ become so popular. 28 days later is better movie, but it is maybe because it is british.

    M-my favorite part about Transformers 2007 was when Optibotimus demanded Even Stevens kill him so he could die and leave his guys without a leader against his greatest adversary.

    Or how just because Jazz is typically """""black coded"""" they had him behave in the most stereotypical fashion imaginable. All that was missing was him talking about his new Yeezy's and asking if he could borrow 'tree fiddy' from Ratchet.

    Or the joke about Shia's happy time, because when I went to see a Transformers movie I wanted to picture Shia LeBouf-... well you know.

    I kid I kid, the stuff with Glenn and his house getting raided genuinely gets a laugh out of me every time.

    WWZ definitely isn't a mind-blowingly amazing film, but it used some pretty wild technology to render waves of zombies flooding over people, climbing on top of eachother like ants and so forth. It has basically nothing to do with the book it's based on and you can tell from how it plays out the movie's production was a nightmare.

    Still, disaster movies tend to have kinda dumb plots to begin with. Loved Geostorm despite how overly goofy that movie was.

    Also these match-ups are really weird.

    Mean Girls Vs Grease? Are you serious?

    I never liked WWZ. I thought it was too tame (PG13) and all the cool bits they already revealed in the trailer, which made the rest of the movie boring.

    If it wasn’t for Transformers, I wouldn’t even be visiting this site. Bay reopened my eyes to the wonderful world of car robots. TF for the win.

    Why would they release it in theatres again? Are people really this willing to run back to theatres again? I sure am not planning to anytime soon.

    Interstellar is also considered classic and that was only 5 years ago

    They need to make money and everything has been halted or delayed and if nostalgia gets them money then so be it
