    The latter sounds more badass and to the point.

    Last night on IMAX I noticed that the 'Bee-Otch' hanging from Sam's Datsun's mirror has been changed to 'Bzz-Otch.' I don't know if anyone remembers the person who sued after the first film came out, claiming that the 'Bee-Otch' belonged to them. This is the only reason that I assume it was changed.

    I also saw that when Ironhide is transforming for the final time, his canons on his arms (which shouldn't be there) transform like they did in ROTF and the first film.

    When Sam first meets Mearing as he was talking up to her, Carly from offscreen puts her hand on his shoulder in support. Now that a cool little detail.

    I also liked some of Wheelie's comments. Like right after Carly gets pissed and storms off he shouts "Great we're homeless!".

    Saw DOTM again over the weekend in the theatre.

    Brains is comical.

    As one who has never seen a shuttle launch, seeing the shuttle to scale with Optimus and the others was remarkable. I knew it was big but wow.

    Barricade has Soundwave's voice when he kills Que.

    Barricade also is apparently pissed with other Decpticons and is chastising them in Cybertronian when the humans begin their assault.

    Shockwave is diesel. He's got like a 12 pack.

    We never actually see the Wreckers transform.

    In the final scene when the remaining Autobots are walking towards Prime, Dino is limping.

    Sentinel fought with everyone: He's fighting with Sideswipe and then sees Bumblebee and tries to stab him, but Bee goes to car form, backs up and transforms again and shoot, while Sentinel lifts Sideswipe and throws him to the ground.

    Also, the rocket that humans we're going to use with the pillar is used against Sentinel, saving Bee and Sideswipe from the rust weapon.

    The soldier who can find his own way home survived climbing on top of Shockwave and fired at him, and then he fought more Decepticons and he was still alive!!

    Lennox repeating his move with Blackout, sliding down the road. Only this time he didn't have a bike and it was with Shockwave.

    Before Prime flies in, Shockwave's eye is hangin around. No where he got his ass handed to him literally.

    Sentinel's sword has an awesome sharp sound effect that sounds everytime his sword moves.

    I loved it when the right before the scene where a whole bunch of Decepticon ships attack the Chicago buildings at night the screen went completely black and it was suuuuper silent in the theater. It was so awesome!

    I loved how when the autobots are saying goodbye, optimus tells bee to make it quick. It was truly an emotional spot in the movie and score went so well with that part of the movie. It was great taht the music when the autobots were leaving was so epic like when they were arriving in the first movie

    The very last frame of the film before the end credits (Earth below and space on front) was used in all three films: 1.- The A-bots get close to Earth 2.- The D-cons get close to Earth 3- Earth's now the Autogot home.

    Im sure you do see the wreckers transform but in the background and only partly as the camera is then moved to sam and the soldiers perspective before the wreckers well wreck the downed con. But you do see Q transform in the same scene

    A lot of you need to lookup the meaning of "subtle" methinks.

    The school bus that said 'Bay City' in the background of the scene where Starscream attacks Sam and Carly.

    After watching the freeway scene on youtube, as the Dreads are running and just tossing cars around Bumblebee and/or Sideswipe fires missles at them. They miss.

    My favorite "subtle" detail, is when Optimus was giving the low down to the soldiers on what his plan was, and then he straightens up to his full height, and tells the autobots "lets roll" and as he does that, I love how he twirls his finger in the air.

    I don't know if this was subtle, but it just dawned on me that the blue wrecker didn't talk. I kind of like that. Since the other 2 were so dominant, they needed a strong silent type.
    They call me Ratchet Girl for a reasonl.
    Yeah, I'm a girl...SO FREAKING WHAT????
    I will always love Ratchet. Don't even try to take my title.

    I think he did, or maybe I confused him with Topspin. Anyone else remembers if Roadbuster talked?
    Also, the voice actor for Leadfoot plays a very famous robot...
    And he voiced Ironhide in the ROTF game too.

    I love that game! I can't believe I never noticed that he voiced both of them.

    Optimus putting his feet on a building (when flying in to save the day) and when he pushes off, the clock hand moves back about 20 minutes.

    Bee transforming, driving backwards off a ramp of rubble and then transforming back again.

    Now that I remember, Roadbuster did talk: When the Wreckers kill the D-con on the ship, one says: "This is going to hurt! A lot!" the voice is different from Topspin's, who's more irish and less agressive, and Leadfoot has this particular irish voice but not as high pitch as the guy who says that.
    Or I'm confused, anyway I love that line

    Roadbuster and Leadfoot both talked while they were standing on the huge shuttle crawler and when they were explaining what happened before the shuttle crashed. Actually Topspin didn't have any lines in the movie.

    So now that the Blu-ray's out I need you guys to look at this one part, because I can't take screenshots on iTunes. (copyright mumbo jumbo...)

    Around the long panning shot of the massive battle on Cybertron, right as the Ark appears, on the lower right-hand corner looks like what appears to be giant...RAVAGES!!!

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Yes, there were Ravage-like quadrupedal transformers. The Cybertron sequence is really well done. A lot of details are in it. Can hardly wait to watch it frame by frame.

    Another subtle detail I liked.. maybe a CGI glitch, Prime's lip quirks in a weird way when he was held at sword point to his throat at the Lincoln Memorial.
