    Default One of my fondest memories of the movie....

    Would have to be the crowd interaction with the movie. Especially on the first day it came out. When Barricade ran after Bumblebee and then Transformers into a car to chase him...the crowd went fucking ape shit. It was awesome. People started screaming and clapping. It's shit like that, that makes you know your seeing something special.

    I live in Sweden and I've never seen a movie which get a reaction like that. We sorta just sit there nice and quiet and watch the flick So no one went apeshit while watching Transformers but I felt a vibe that people were enjoying it. They laughed a lot though, and only at the stuff that were supposed to be funny. I've heard of audiences where people laughed during the Optimus Prime narration

    ya, i always hear about how in Europe nobody cheers and shit, they just sit there and watch and laugh if it's funny. But the cheering is such an integral part of the theater going experience for me.

    It's like when your watching something at home with a bunch of good friends and you all proclaim something awesome when you see it, expect in the theaters its on a massive scale. The sharing of that first time experience is awesome.

    I like the way American audiences express their emotions. Japanese audiences are uber quiet (while they are enjoying the movie).
    I saw "The Rock" in San Francisco, that was so memorable. I wish I could see Transformers in such a wonderful atmosphere.

    I remember the audience went nuts when Bumblebee changed his car-mode and came back as the new Camaro.

    It was the same experience for me too!
    I hobbled to the theater on crutches to the advanced screening and people were cheering,yelling out when optimus narrated,laughing at all the right places.
    Most of the time that would bother me a bit but in this case I understood peoples unthusiasm for the movie and the long awaited anticipation, I first heard about it a good three years before it came out.
    Now we look forward to the musical score and the dvd release and the sequels of course.

    At exactly the same scene, I get my eyes watery every single time (11 times now). That scene is amazing.

    In my theatre there was applause left and right for the movie and when the end credits began to roll the crowd went apeshit like they were at a concert. I waited for the "a MICHAEL BAY film" credit to roll hoping someone would cheer but I ended up being the only one. I was fucking loud too.

    My fondest memories from Transformers was when the rest of the Autobots land on Earth, Bay had done a terrific job slowly building up to that. And the music gave me goosebumps.

    My second favourite scene was the end battle, not how cool the effects or anything where but how it was written. The Autobots and humans working together as a team and not just a bunch of guys running around trying to take everything on by themselves.

    Oh yeah, I remember watching Kill Bill in Tokyo and they were so quiet while me and my brother and friends couldn't help but react audibly (not intentionally) to certain scenes. And we had to stay til the end of the credits to be respectful because in Japan they don't get up until the end credits are finished.

    Maybe we Japanese audiences are going fucking ape shit silently in our head. But sometimes I want to react audibly, especially as to this movie.

    On that very scene when barricade jumps back into car mode to chase bumblebee my MOM goes wow!! & at the very point she wasa believer...hooked until the credits rolled...by the time it came to the end of that long scene when bumblebee transforms and opens the door for them to hop in she says as giddy as a lil kid "i gotta get me one of THOSE" and ends with "this seems so familiar" of course faintly remembering the toys she bought me as a young lad

    Dude, judging from the title of this thread, one gets the sense that this movie came out about 10 years ago.

    Haha, I thought the same thing. Like people that say Back in the Day to stuff that happened like a year ago.

    The masterpiece makes people feel nostalgic for the first day, even though it's just a couple of months ago.
