3.0 out of 5 stars Transformers
This item received was in good condition. The only thing I did not like was the price showed on the website. I went to get my Visa card and all of the sudden it jumped up by about $10.00. I wrote to the company and they said their supplier uped their rates.
I feel the company should have been on the ball and showed the correct price on the Amazon website. I felt...

5.0 out of 5 stars Remarkabley Amazing,
This review is from: Transformers the Movie (DVD)For those who grew up in the 80's should never forget what Hasbro brought into our lifes, the TRANSFORMERS!!!
Just when I thought the episodes couldn't get any better, they release 'The Transformers Movie' which should be written down in the history books.
Thanks to Rhino for taking it on to release it on DVD.
TRUST ME, You'll Never want to watch anything else...
5 stars, Remarkabley Amazing!

4.0 out of 5 stars The best release of this film to date.,
The original DVD release from Séville pictures, and it's successor released by Rhino Home Video have nothing on this.
First and foremost: This edition is released by Sony, so you know they weren't scrimping on the reproduction of the film. It's a high quality transfer, great sound.
If you're going to shell out money on a Transformers: The Movie DVD, this is the one to get. However, there are a few things you should know about it:
1.) The "bonus footage and deleted scenes" are a small collection of clips, mostly test shots and unfinished scenes, and they show the promotional trailer of the film which features alternate versions of a few scenes, and ones that were cut out of the film. However, you've got the captions over top of everything and a commentary track you can't turn off.
2.) The presentation of Scramble City, additionally has a commentary track you can't turn off, so the original Japanese audio is lost, and you've got some guy from the Transformers Collectors Club and one of the anal-retentive G-1 purists from www.tfw2005.com going on about the difference between Japanese and American Transformers (with obvious contempt and/or disdain.) Additionally there are no English subtitles. So if you want to watch a Transformers episode dubbed over by two guys who's opinions you don't care about explaining to you what's going on, on the screen, then this is for you. As for myself, I would have preferred if they kept the original audio track and had subtitles in English. That would have been a nice touch.
3.) This is more for the sake of humor than a complaint or observation, but all of the old Transformers toy commercials are of poor quality (In fact, you can find better quality versions of them online if you look hard enough) and they also blurred out the faces of live people in the commercials (for obvious legal reasons, it's funny to watch) it's also funny watching the Japanese versions of these commercials that were just dubs of the American toy commercials.
4.) The story board pictures are the same ones featured in the Rhino release.
Other than that, I would have to say the bonus features aren't really that exciting, or interesting, or worth the hype. If you're going to buy this 20th Anniversary edition, buy it for the GREAT quality version of the movie. Otherwise your going to be disappointed.
3.0 out of 5 stars Transformers,
I feel the company should have been on the ball and showed the correct price on the Amazon website. I felt ripped off.
4.0 out of 5 stars Happy and satisfied buyer :~),
They are really professionnal and effective. Buy Amazon.ca
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best animated movies of all-time and one of my favorites!!,
I remember the movie like it was yesterday.
Who can forget "Arise, Rodimus Prime" and Rodimus sends Galvatron to a plasma bath. After 21 years, I still remember the movie like it was yesterday.
5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for any transformer fan.,
5.0 out of 5 stars Disney can take their movies and stick em up their wazoos,
This review is from: Transformers the Movie (DVD)Disney artists need to take lessons from this movie. Disney uses a lot of lazy computer animation, which usually looks horrible.
This movie is 99 percent actual hand drawn animation. All of which looks superb.
The music is also great. About 6 great songs with that 80's hard rock attitude.
For another example for great hand drawn animation, check out G.I. Joe the movie.
5.0 out of 5 stars Till all are One.......,
This review is from: Transformers the Movie (DVD)As a child I was obsessed with the transformers, together with about 40 million other boys of my age. This whole concept of a vehicle that could transform into a humanoid form, wich not only had a deep character but also a form of spirituality, is very mind stimulating.
Transformers The Movie is a modern myth, like Star Wars, only Star Wars is very limited in comparison to the Transformers. Like all good myths this movie has certain universal themes, the latter I shall describe below:
- The battle between good and evil (Autobots vs Decepticons)
- That wich transcends and unites good and evil (the infinte danger of Unicron that would wipe out all existence).
- A secret power from within, a spiritual essence (the Autobotmatrix).
- The transcendence of the hero (HotRod becoming Rhodimus Prime).
- The transcendence of the villain (Megatron becoming Galvatron).
- The exploration of an unknown realm (Cup and HotRod visiting Quintessa).
- The victory over the subconciouss mind (when Cup and HotRod are thrown into the Sharkticon pool they even go deeper, and drive in circles, thus creating a vortex wich throws the water out giving them free game to battle the Sharkticons).
- True comradry and friendship (well, this is just all over the movie).
- The rise and fall of pride (Starscream's coronation).
These are just a few wich are displayed but I think you have to watch the movie and decide for yourself. I rate this movie five stars because it is such a wonderfull myth (but a myth wich is greatly animated and highly entertaining and has fantastic music). And yes, maybe there are a few flaws like Starscream losing his foot and two seconds later there's nothing wrong with him and yes I would like to see some Unicron history but these are all details.
Till all are One.......
4.0 out of 5 stars The coolest Transformer movie created!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Transformers the Movie (DVD)This movie rocks! Just if you're wondering, the Transformers are two legions of robots who war over the control of their home world, Cybertron. These robots convert from vehicle to robot, whenever they please. The good guys are the Autobots: Hot Rod, Kup, Blurr, RC, Ultra Magnus, Blaster, Wreck-Gar, Perceptor, Ironhide, Jazz, Cliffjumper, Bumblebee, Grimlock, Slag, Sludge, Snarl, Swoop, and of course, the legendary Optimus Prime (there are other Autobots; too many to list). The bad guys are the Decepticons: Megatron, Starscream, Astrotrain, Bombshell, Kickback, Barrage, Shrapnel, Venom, Soundwave, Thundercracker, Bonecrusher, Hook, Laung Haul (Bonecrusher, Hook, Laung Haul and a bunch of other guys combine to form the most powerful Decepticon called Devestator), and more.
What really was dumb to jam in the movie was 2 swear words. I thought the coolest scene in the movie was Hot Rod opening the Matrix of Leadership and Transform into Rodimus Prime, and also "lighting their darkest hour" while playing "The Touch" in the backround. Having the coolest soundtrack a director could dream of, this movie is probably the coolest you'll ever see! By the way, the Transformers theme song and the song called "Dare" are in my favorite range of soundtrack. Hope this reveiw helped everyone who read it.
