    Very funny. I liked this review a lot.

    [u]Now how about a review of the ORIGINAL Transformers movie?![/u] You are, after all, the Nostalgia Critic, so how can you review a modern-day movie without reviewing its 80s, animated, kid-oriented, commercialized counterpart?

    Can I assume you were being sarcastic?

    With the messy action, terrible jokes, castration of the Autobots, countless plotholes and overall just an awful script, I can only assume that the review was sarcasm.

    Clearly when it comes to you there is no more than meets the eye at all.

    @Steve:

    I don't know about you, but when I saw this movie on the big screen, I didn't give two shits about anything else but the giant CGI robots ruining peoples shit. Looking back it was very corny, had horrible dialogue, and stretched your suspension of disbelief to its breaking point (no chick in my high school was as hot as the one in the babe in this movie). But what was the intellectual property they were dealing with? Transformers. You really can't make an Oscar winner with a movie based off a Japanese toy line. But who cares about how good the movie is when so much detail is put into transforming robots that people are having orgasms in the theater seats, soaking a new layer of secret sauce all over their popcorn?!? I think the Nostalgia Critic's review was simply his take on how kick ass and testosterone filled you felt coming out of this movie. I walked to my car waiting for the Hummer I parked next to, to make that bad ass transforming sound and start firing cluster missiles at the Fred Meyer across the street. So no, I don't think this was sarcasm, but instead was pure awesome.

    It's called an opinion Steve. Some people are action people. Some people are drama people. A movie like Transformers isn't intended to be drama so I think it's fair to review it as an action movie, not a drama. Who really cares about the plot?

    Besides, there weren't really many plotholes when you get right down to it. If anything the problem is the plot is way too simple.

    I cant tell whether your being sarcastic like the Speed Racer thing or whether you actually like that turd belonging to Micheal Bay.

    Not every movie can be A Clockwork Orange.

    Transformers was pretty cool. Great action.

    My fave part of this review was twofold:

    "A hummer! I'm totally buying a hummer!"

    and

    "A police car! I always knew police were evil!"

    I think this video really shows how good you are at choreography and cinematography, especially during your second "Eye" quote.
  • Game_over
    You're so good at doing voices. Especially the Transformers.
  • SalemJericho
    @Kindra - There was a plot?

    Definetly #2 on my favorite reviews, showed exactly what you were paying for when you saw this movie, lots of random action, WE MUST PROTECT THE CUBE! and a lame lazily put in love story that could have been much better if it had been necessary. This was a ***** review :) (yes thats meant to be 5 stars)

    PROTECT THE CUBE! That was probably the best line, mainly for the pose and way you said it. xD

    lol @ "I always knew police were evil." ;D and the end was funny. Nice debut for the Nostalgia Critic.
  • patmannix
    Great review.
    You have a lot of energy.
    the little guy was actually called soundwave. Yeah i know all the names.

    i dont like how they messed up everyones face but like Optimus.
    And Megatron used to turn into a GUN.
    you know hes gonna be evil when you turn into a GUN.

    Well, Crod, I think the answer you're looking for is in the video "Ask That Guy 1.5."

    pat mannix: That's actually Frenzy. Soundwave is in the sequel.

    I really don't understand this, man! This isn't what I expect from you (granted, this came before you made allyour other videos, and we knew what to expect, but still). I mean, this movie was so ridiculous, I'd be sure (had I seen your other videos before this one) that you would rip it apart.

    Stupid crap like interrupting the movie a half-hour into the story to see ANTHONY ANDERSON of all people, shouting racial stereotypes like nobody's business? That specifically is something I'd be sure the Nostalgia critic would rip apart!

    Not getting so see practically any robots fighting at all, and instead the whole movie being a propaganda piece for the U.S. Military? The Nostalgia Critic I know would tear that a new one?

    Endning the film with asolutely no resolution to the fights because two of the bad guys are STILL THERE, even though one of them had died before, but then mysteriously reappears? Come on, NC. You should be jumping on this shit!

    I can't belive it when people say "you can't criticize it for just being an action film." That's just a lame excuse. There are good action films, there are BAD action films (Transformers), and then there are Action films that are truly just great movies (T2, for one).

    I'm just saying.

    I love the tribute vid with clips of Transformers in the background and NC's voice as the audio.
  • pascalbg
    Your first Nostalgia Critic review looks like one of you Bum Review! :D

    My favorite part of this video was when he stopped all his craziness and, in Phoenix Wright style, said, "Protect the Cube."
  • Happy_Nostalgia_Nerd
    Has it really been nearly a year since it came out?

    I loved Transformers a lot. I can't wait for Transformers 2.

    I waited this movie as I loved that cartoon dispite the fact that it was mostly commercial for toys (I didn't see it that way back then) and certainly I just love those giant robots. I was kinda dissapointed from it. Sure it had some great scenes but it also had some pointless parts like Spike talking in class and Bubblebee "peeing" on that agent. Huimor didn't work in it exept that part were those soldier tries to call and that indian guy is as operator. It was kinda funny.

    Some Transformer toys being banged together 'til they broke would've been funny, during the end part when he was trying to describe the end action with erratic sounds.
