    Cool interview! It's surreal (in a pleasant way) to have a TF movie director who even knows who Cliffjumper or Skywarp are, let alone care what happens to them. I really hope he remains involved with future movies, his love for the brand is apparent.

    This guy is great. I really hope the box office rewards him. It is completely obvious what reverence this guy has for the material.

    I saw this movie and I have to say, it was 80s. It was 80s as Hell. And I loved it. Hailee Steinfeld is a remarkable young actress. She is going to go far in this industry.

    I agree. I hope she doesn't feel the need to "sell out" as it were like many actresses her age are doing in Hollywood. She already has some...shall we say...interesting pictures floating around.

    I like it too.
    Interesting fact is that shows-within-a-show are usually intentionally of low quality, e.g. Terrance and Philip (South Park), Itchy & Scratchy (The Simpsons), Days of Our Lives (Friends). I think this is why idea of Go-bots within the Transformers universe works so well.

    IDW Cliffjumper could take down both Shatter and Dropkick single-handedly. Read Spotlight: Cliffjumper.

    Hopefully they do hire him for more movies. He seems to understand Transformers way better.

    Sorry man. But Cliffjumper got Jazzed. It happens in every movie. Someone had to die.
