Seeing as TF came out in NZ and Australia today, and I went to a midnight premier, here are my thoughts:

FUCK YES!
FUCK YES!
FUCK YES!

SO GODDAMN GOOD!

The action was intense, the human bits not too bad, the Decepticons badass, the Autobots heroic, effects phenomenal, and it was surprisingly funny.

The Good: The vast majority of it. The transformations were epic. Fight scenes generally pretty good. The mannerisms of Frenzy were pretty cool. The Decepticons firepower was also impressive. All the voice actors were perfect.

The Bad: Mostly nitpicks. Could have done with a bit more interaction between the Decepticons. They didn't really feel fleshed out. A lot of the battle scenes were rather hard to follow due to jerky cameras. And I just didn't like the section 7 stuff.

The Awesome: Ironhide rocket-jumping. Military guy's bike slide grenade launch. Optimus decapitating Bonecrusher. Starscream's flying fight scene against the jets. Megan Fox is crazy hot.

The WTF: Making out on Bumblee while all the other Autobots watch?

And Megatron dies. Hey, I did say spoilers in the title. So do almost all the Decepticons, but Starscream pulls a Vader, and shoots of into space.

Plenty of room for a sequel, and I'm fucking looking forward to it.

Late now, am tired. Sleep good.

I remember the last time Megatron died.

He came back as GALVATRON!

Plenty of material for sequels, imo.

Im actually glad to see that someone actually liked it. I was afraid they would cinematically rape what was left of my childhood, the few parts that the internet hasnt scarred completely.

Sounds like it is worth seeing.
And for that
I thank you.

Blue Sun Missile
getting his childhood excitement for a transformer movie back. (a good thing)

Fucking epic- one of the best movies I've seen this year, no doubt.

You just know that with the ending there's going to be a regrouping of decepticons coming to earth to eradicate the remaining autobots and meanwhile, autobots will descend from the heavens to do some epic battle in another major metropolitan area.

Went and saw it. Was awesome.
[spoiler]Felt bad for Jazz but he didnt really do much. Ironhide's rolling was pretty comical during parts of the fight that didn't require him rolling. Bonecrusher getting decapitated was awesome. We never saw Starscream die so I am assuming he is still alive. The scorpian midicon(I'm pretty sure that's what they were) never died. The little midicon that shot the blades was probably my favorite next to Starscream. Ratchet seemed kind of useless. And I can't remember seeing Blackout die. Were those really midicons? And please tell me the next movie does not envolve collection energon. [/spoiler]

I too was most pleased by Frenzy’s appearance in the film (even though everyone knows he was Soundwave) and all of the redesigns were pretty much badass. The absence of Unicron actually gave the characters some room to breath and the absence of the cube gives them something better to do then play keep away in the sequels.

I can't tell if the movie was better or worse due to its complete lack of "Ravage, go."

This movie was my dirty little dream for years. Can't believe they up and made the blasted thing AND did a good job.

Aye, I'm waiting for the sequel when we starting talking about "sparks" and when "sparks" go out.

Starscream definitely survived; he was seen LEAVING THE ATMOSPHERE AND BLASTING OFF INTO SPACE during the credits. Barricade was absent during the final battle; he was there during the highway chase, but totally absent during the fight itself and he wasn't among the bodies beind dumped in the ocean. Scorponok, though he got his ass kicked, survived after burrowing under the sand and fleeing. He wasn't seen for the rest of the movie though. It's also pretty likely that Frenzy survived since he survived decapitation once already.

In fact, if Frenzy can survive getting his head lopped off once or even twice, why did Bonecrusher get his ass raped when Optimus Prime decapitated him? Plot hole?

Also, Soundwave and Ravage are supposed to appear in the sequel.

"RUMBLE, FRENZY, RAVAGE, RATBAT, EJECT. OPERATION: INTERFERENCE."

Soundwave and his cassettes totally kicked ass. He also had the coolest voice imaginable.

As long as they leave the Energon out of any sequels, I'll buy my ticket.

Riddle me this:

What happened to XBot360, Mountain Dewtron, and hug-a-bitch's-face-with-my-steering-wheel-bot?

They were one-scene-only comic relief, to be forgotten about. If enough people complain, they will either be thrown in as extras in the sequel or mentioned in passing in as vague as possible that will still technically close that loophole.

Also- Was there really a point to the fat, black hacker besides comic relief? He provided as much to the script as Jar Jar Binks, except he was actually entertaining, though predictable.
