    Thumbs up Favorite scene rave

    Starscream ambushing everyone was just the greatest-he was the best character in this movie hands down (and that's literally a fact given he didn't get phased)

    It'll be great if Thundercracker and the gang are back with him come II. Great job on that scene Bay.

    Optimus pawning Bonecrusher.

    Incredible CGI there.

    And then the entire backyard scene. Just fabulous.

    And the autobots arriving to earth.

    Okay, there's too many. I admit. I love the movie. I find very little faults with it.
    I'm a dog chasing cars. I don't know what I'd do if I caught one. I don't have plans. I just do things. I'm not a schemer.

    I use a knife because guns are too quick. Otherwise, you can't savor all the emotions. You know who people are in their last moments.

    I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you... stranger.

    No matter how many times I watch this movie...

    When the music of the Decent starts up and the meteors are hurtling towards earth...

    I just cant help but feel a little different during that scene.

    Yah that was awesome! The maneuver is called Drifting, or power sliding.

    That's it. I wasn't sure how do people say it in English. We say it "drift" too.
    And I just watched it again.

    you know... I don't think I've ever seen a semi drift in any other movie. Mike did a great job getting it done....twice. The city scene where he drifts and transforms is fantastic.

    I can't wait to see what he's gonna pull off in tf2!

    Maybe we might see.. two semis (or more) drifting in TF2?

    That's quite true. everytime I see the car chase scenes in this movie, I find Michael is the best director for this series.

    I think the best part is when Bonecrusher and Prime fall off the bridge. You can feel the impact of it. All the other scenes are completely overrated. Starscream's jet attack scene was fun, definitely something that every fan had been expecting to see for a long time.

    Prime drifting was neat because it kinda showed how even though they're driving they're also thinking and strategizing.

    But all of that misses something when you don't get character development. Bonecrusher's death was cool but he never got a chance to say anything, you never really know what he's all about.
    An idea does not exist until acted upon.

    Especially in IMAX. Ohhhhh yeah.

    Considering Mike has said there was a lot he wanted to do in the first film that he couldn't do - i can't wait either

    Since B stole my fav scene I gotta go with you. That "youie" that Prime does with Jazz in PERFECT sync... I loved it.

    Oh and how close to Tokyo in life to how it was represented in Fast and the Furious and also Lost in Translation. I am seriously thinking of going somewhere over seas. I need to stretch my wings a lil more broad.

    Hey stef Just imagine if that Treatment is real. And you see Magnus and all those cars rolling off and transforming b4 they hit the ground and crash into a million bits. Like in BBII only before the expensive car goes splat it turns into a Giant Fucking Robot.

    Well, you know, it can be shared.

    I don't have dibs or anything on it.

    I don't think anyways....

    I haven't seen the Fast and the Furious yet, so.. the view of Tokyo represented in Lost in Translation was somewhat caricatured, but I know Japan might look strange to people from other countries. Osaka in the Black Rain was not too bad. Funniest image of Tokyo I've seen was of Kill Bill. I loved it, though.

    Well.. It may be said Tokyo is fun to play, and to buy your new Zoids.

    Mine would probably be the entire highway scene. The Prime/Bonecrusher fight had some of the most intricate and incredible CGI I've ever seen.

    And nothing was cooler than Bonecrusher fucking the bus up ha

    The best scene is at the observatory when it's just the Autobots alone and talking to eachother. We needed 20 more scenes just like that one in the first film.

    My favorite shot is definitely the Prime u-turn in the desert.
    Shoot for the impossible...
    ...Then do it.

    - BB's transforming burnout (if that isn't Transform and muthaf**kin' Roll Out, I don't know what is!!)
    - The entire freaking Arrival sequence (it's a broken record here, but for good reason)
    Still my favorite scenes.

    My absolute favorite scene....the Autobots coming to Earth. When I saw this part in theaters I had a massive smile on my face and the "OH BOY OH BOY, THEY'RE HERE!!! YAY!!!"

    The best part of that scene...the score. Loved it, it made the scene very surreal. So I dowloaded it. I'm that obsessed.

    I downloaded that entire scene too, just so I could get my fix before the score CD came out.
