Transformers is a 2007 American science fiction action film based on the toy line of the same name created by Hasbro. The film, which combines computer animation with live-action filming, was directed by Michael Bay, with Steven Spielberg serving as executive producer. It was produced by Don Murphy and Tom DeSanto, and is the first installment in the live-action Transformers film series. The film stars Shia LaBeouf as Sam Witwicky, a teenager who gets caught up in a war between the heroic Autobots and the villainous Decepticons, two factions of alien robots who can disguise themselves by transforming into everyday machinery, primarily vehicles. The Autobots intend to use the AllSpark, the object that created their robotic race, to rebuild their home planet Cybertron and end the war, while the Decepticons have the intention of using it to build an army by giving life to the machines of Earth. Tyrese Gibson, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Anderson, Megan Fox, Rachael Taylor, John Turturro, and Jon Voight also star, while voice actors Peter Cullen and Hugo Weaving voice Optimus Prime and Megatron respectively.

Great show as usual, you guys!!

sleeperx9 says:

Haven’t grown up on the show, so could never suspend my disbelief enough to actually watch the movies, but this was fun on enthusiasm alone. Shame it was so uncomfortable in there.
Good debut from the new host, gets my vote.

LG3 Nation says:

Love the show!

David Crabtree says:

A much as I LOVE The Rock, 13 Hours is by far Bay’s best movie!

David Crabtree says:

You guys gotta do a Watchalong commentary for Transformers The Movie(1986)

Icarus Prime says:

How come you guys never do other John Woo movies like The Killer, Hard Boiled, A Better Tomorrow? They’re among the most influential movies of the action genre. This podcast should try to expand to not just US movies, but foreign movies too.

Examples include: Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Leon: The Professional.

Kylo Ben says:

After Rise of the Planet of the Apes, you guys better do Dawn then War when it comes out. Love Action Movie Anatomy. Go Team Action!
