Am I the only person who is scared the Transformers movie is going to totally suck? Just the fact that Michael Bay is doing it scares me. I promise he has a rule that for every line of dialog there must be two explosion. Add that to the fact that the trailers make the story look more like it is a movie about us instead of a movie about the transformers. (check out this new trailer from Jalopnik) Really who cares how the people respond to the big robots. We have a million movies that show that. I hope that they quickly get us out of the way and let Optimus Prime and the rest be the stars.

On a personal note I can’t believe they are making this a live action movie. I am sure it is going to look great, but it will never compare to The Transformers: the Movie which is still one of my favorite childhood memories.

    Totally agree on the Michael Bay talking to booms ratio, except maybe on the Meatloaf videos he did. I think the Yahoo trailer does the movie a lot more justice though, and it also shows that the bots might actually get adequate screen time.

    I’m less scared of the director than the fact that Prime’s voice is supplied by none other than Eeyore. Could be worse, though. It could be done by Elmo, I guess.

    btw can anyone name the Transformer in the picture?

  3. -B says:

    With or without hovering my mouse pointer over it?

    I was always a Shockwave fan. I like the name Starscream, but they made him such a big baby.

  4. The Average Youth Minister says:

    Alright can anyone give me his original name?

  5. Allie H says:

    Have no clue. But I really don’t think it is necessary to dog Elmo on this website!

    Heavens to Mergatroid, you all are a bunch of geeks.

    Really, no one knows who the Transformer is? Rodimus Prime/Hot Rod. Maybe I’m more of a geek than I thought.

    Also, the guy who did the voice of Eeyore is the guy who did the voice of Optimus in the tv show and movie. Looking at hsi bio, he was also Ironhide. And look! he was. KARR from Knight Rider and Venger from the D&D cartoon!

    (It’s a miracle I ever found a wife.)

    Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner. Don’t worry jose, I tend to make sure I mention my wife immediately after I prove my level of nerdyness too.

  9. Andrew says:

    Is it just me, or am I the only one that thought nerdiness should be spelled with an i instead of y? Any other nerds pondering this?

  10. The Average Youth Minister says:

    The cool thing about being me is that when I make up a word I can spell it however I want.

  11. -B says:

    Like "meself", right?

  12. The Average Youth Minister says:


    Or like if I want to call some of the annoying typo hawks that comment on this site "really-great-people-ish" I can spell it J-E-R-K-S

  13. -B says:

    Should you hyphenate typo hawks? Typo-hawks… yeah, I probably would.

  14. Allie H says:

    Get them typo hawks Shane! They are soooooo annoying.
