Shout! Factory brings the Transformers movie people actually like to Blu-ray
Quote:
Coming just one month shy of its 30th anniversary, Shout! Factory and Hasbro studios are bringing Transformers: The Movie to Blu-ray this September.

The newest edition of the film that sent countless children running and crying from the theater at the death of Optimus Prime in August of 1986 will feature a new HD transfer from the original 35mm elements, as well as a “full range” of bonus content, some of which will probably be culled from the out-of-print 20th anniversary release that will fetch quite a bit of energon on Amazon. That content includes the international scrolling Star Wars-style opening and audio commentary with director Nelson Shin, as well as deleted and alternate footage (including an animated storyboard where Ultra Magnus is drawn and quartered).

Transformers: The Movie contains more heart, gravitas, and actual Transformers than Michael Bay’s 2007 “live-action” take on the popular toy line—if just about everything in the movie is digitally altered, is it really live action?—not to mention a much cooler soundtrack. Or maybe it’s simply nostalgia: Cynics will point out that, in the film, many favorite characters from the first two seasons of the Transformers television program were killed off simply to make room for new toys in the Hasbro line.


However, the brutal deaths actually carry some weight in the film’s “hero’s journey”-inspired storyline and showcase anime inspired—and far superior to the television series—animation and commitment to more adult storytelling. Transformers: The Movie is also notable for its, bizarre cast including Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack, “the Micro Machines guy,” and Orson Welles in his final film role.

Transformers: The Movie is slated for release September 13th, 2016.

If you haven't seen this movie in some time, it holds up amazingly well for a movie that was ment to be vehicle to launch a bunch of new toys. The animation is well done as is the voice acting, story line and the outstanding 80's soundtrack.

Holy hell yes! One of my favorite movies of all time. I listen to the Transformers soundtrack regularly (if Dare or some of the other electro songs aren't on your exercise playlist, you're doing it wrong). It's aged so well with a great cast of voice actors, good story, and serious villainy.

The rebooted live action movie series is overdue for a Unicron encounter...

So if I take a white girl and give her straight bangs and dye her hair black everyone will think shes asian?

 

Maybe she can say 'me love you long time' too

As a fan of the Comic I've been pleasantly surprised. Tone has been excellent.

At first I thought it was just poor image quality or make up that made her look different there, but according to Johansson's publicist, that's her double.

Too bad her double isn't Asian; that woulda caused the internets to explode.

Saw Warcraft. As a fan of all the games I liked it a lot. Give it a B+. I can see how people who aren't Warcraft/Blizzard fan boys would dislike it or not understand it.

I think it's a movie purely for its base. (Which is totally fine)

I'll probably watch inthe coming weeks

+1. Been involved with the franchise since Warcraft 1 so I loved seeing everything on the big screen. Thought they did an excellent job with the Orcs, but the Garona plotline wasn't well executed. Medivh could have been better too.
