No doubt hidden in the 271 reviews that precedes my own you will find many of my ideas and thoughts about this movie. No matter, I still feel obligated to share what this movie meant and continues to mean to me. To begin, credit must be given to the composer and artist of this film. While, although sometimes a bit cheesy (ie. that same choo-choo-train sewer music playing whenever unicron appeares, which is borrowed from from ROCKY IV), the music does energize the film at times and makes for a great soundrack. Next, despite what some others have said, the animation for this film was great for its time. I mean, who could ever forget that scene when Optimus decides, "Megatron must be stopped--no matter what the cost," and leaps into action blasting away. That's the stuff great memories are made of. Conversely, however, the plot of this movie made perfect sense when I was ten years old, but now seems a bit weak. But what can you expect? After all, it IS--or WAS--a childrens cartoon. More than anything I think this film represents the end of an era. While kids still have vivid imaginations and continue to love cartoons, I wonder if they will obsess over them (running home from school to make sure you didn't miss a minute) like we did. In these days of powerfull computers, DVDs, and Wallmart(hehe), I don't know if things will ever be the same. Bottom line, I love this movie not only for what it is( a childrens cartoon), but for what we made it( a legend that defines a generation). Autobots, transform and roll out.

When I saw Transformers on Blu-ray, with snazzy hand-drawn cover art (my copy is Rodimus holding up the matrix with Unicron and all the other S3 characters), I knew I'd be satisfied with even a barebones release. But as it happens, this UK Madman release has extra features that rival even the U.S. Sony/ BMG DVD release. Highlights include a Peter Cullen Q&A, the alternate Star Wars-style opening, awesomely bad Stan Bush music video, lots of toy commercials, and a PDF file of the movie script.
The only problem with all of this is that all of the extras are in PAL format and not compatible with U.S. players. The version I bought of the movie was described as "Region Free." That's kind of true, as the feature film is presented in 1080p 24fps and playable anywhere. The special features are not, however, and I had to use computer software to be able to watch them. When I try to launch a special feature from my PS3, nothing happens.

So, with the bad news out of the way, I can say that I love this transfer. First, it's genuine 1080 HD, certainly not upscaled (some YouTube uploads had me worried). Second, it's unabashedly filthy. Just the way I remember movie prints as a kid. We're not talking Tarantino Grindhouse, here, it just feels like you snuck into the last theater left playing the movie. It's refreshingly organic and fitting for an 80s cartoon. Thanks to blu-ray, digital artifacts are minimal (nice to see after the digital mess on the U.S. DVD). Even the many "strobe light" sections fare pretty well.

This is the release of the Transformers animated motion picture in celebration of it's 20th anniversary as well as a prelude to the release of the Transformers Live action motion picture that will be released in 2007. Let us take a look at the details of this dvd release which will help buyers in making the choice as to whether or not to make this film part of their dvd library.

Firstly, this dvd is released by Sony BMG Music Entertainment, as therefore those who might be expecting a dvd release of the animated film together with the live action film later in 2007 will be sorely disappointed as the property doesn't belong to the same distributor.

Secondly, this dvd release is a 2 disc release featuring three versions of the feature film, commentary tracks and interviews, a sneak peak at the live-action movie.

A breakdown of the dvd details are as follows :

*Brilliantly remastered and color-corrected

*16x9 widescreen presentation, which has not been seen anywhere since the movie was in theatres twenty years ago

*Full screen edition as well

*Commentary tracks

*Interviews with director Nelson Shin, story consultant Flint Dille and voice actress Susan Blu

*Autobot Matrix of Knowledge Presentation: Truly showcasing the pop culture phenomenon that is The Transformers, Sony BMG has created a special version of the film for the DVD release.

*The `Autobot Matrix of Knowledge' will feature trivia and fun facts about the movie itself, the Transformers brand, and the pop culture references in which Transformers has been spoofed/tributed. Approximately one hundred fun facts will show up on screen throughout the movie.
