My Fun-filled Transformers Weekend

If you ask me, i will say without a doubt that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was definitely one of the best movies to ever come out this year.

Now there are a lot of things I liked about the latest installment in the Transformers franchise, I’d have to say that while the filmmakers had taken the liberty of introducing fresh ideas and story devices into the movie, they were ideas that didn’t violate the old memories I had of the 1980’s animated series.

In fact, the new ideas worked rather well in tying all the elements of the story together.  So for that, you simply have to give credit to the writers: Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (who both worked on The Legend of Zorro (2005), Mission: Impossible 3 (2006), and Star Trek (2009), as well as on hit TV series Alias, Lost and Fringe), and their buddy Ehren Kruger.

In any case, I did look up trivia, production notes, etc. about the movie- because I’m just involved like that.  I had even gone so far as revisiting the old Transformers classics- such as episodes from the 1980’s animation series and the 1986 Transformers movie.

If you’d like to check out movie trivia on the latest installment of the Transformers franchise, then check out my other post, “Ten Fun Facts About Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”, or you can head on over to the movie’s pages on Wikipedia or on IMDb.com.

You can also read my review “Ten Things I Like About Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen”.  It’s got some spoilers though, so don’t read it yet if you haven’t seen the movie, and plan to watch it soon.

Also worth checking out, if you want to brush up on everything you need to know about the Transformers, check out these sites:

Both are fan-maintained online databases of all things Transformer and Cybertronian.  If you ask me, great geek reading.

Cheers, everyone!
