Hot Rod, Kup and Galvatron are the only new guys who come out of the film with much credit... Agreed, though I actually think Wreck-Gar should be included in that list. He's the leader of a brand new race of Transformers, he gets the best of Springer, he leads the resurrection of Ultra Magnus, he e...

It's hard to understand why they'd cut this one in particular, since it's a perfect representation of the capabilities of the Ultra Magnus toy. If I recall correctly, the only time the movie shows his truck mode is for less than a second during the initial assault on Autobot City. Wasn't he the bigg...

House cats kill more birds every year than windmills and have a way of making your house smell like something absolutely no washed person would want to venture into.

Recommend one movie to the unwashed masses

For me, it has to be Zero Effect. Still my favorite movie of all time, even despite the fact that Ben Stiller's heavily featured.

What's your relationship status now?

It's been 12 years since I joined the Archive and I know a lot has changed. I'm simply curious as to how many people out there are married and/or have kids or are still living the single life.

Me? I've been married for five years, and been with the same girl for nearly 10, with no kids...yet.

Usually, going to the movies is simply too expensive for me to justify. I can easily afford it, but I simply can't rationalize spending $25 or more (accounting for the wife) to see a movie unless (1) I really really want to see it, (2) my wife or friends want to see it as well, (3) it's an action mo...

Does anyone want me to get a Masterpiece Thundercracker for them?

I have no idea where he's been released or whether people are looking, but they have 4 or 5 left at the nearby Toys R Us (in Virginia) and I'm in the mood for community service or whatever.

The only fictional moments that have ever made me cry:

Optimus dying in TFTM when I was 4.

The ending of The Shawshank Redemption EVERY GODDAMN TIME IT'S ON TNT OR TBS.

and that horrifying scene in Toy Story 3.

That is all.

Also 95% of advertising (which is what the G1 cartoon was) is brand awareness rather than specific product promotion. I am, and always will be, highly skeptical of the impact 'spotlight' episodes have on sales of specific figures. I don't think an average child watches/watched "Auto Beserk", for ex...

I really can't stress how much of my enjoyment of Prime so far has been down to avoiding the "let's do our version of [prominent G1 character]". There's a nice blend of different influences in there (Op and Bee from the films, Bulk and Ratchet from Animated, Airachnid from BW, Starscream with some ...

Part of the problem is that the first three films, as much as I love them, follow a pretty simple formula: 1. Find something extremely powerful, located on or near Earth. 2. Activate something else extremely powerful. Transformers: AllSpark, Megatron ROTF: Matrix, Sun Harvester DOTM: Sentinel, Space...

And the 897345 commercial breaks during each NFL game, not to mention the 30-35 seconds between plays when NOTHING IS HAPPENING, are why watching a game in real time (unless you're there in person or at a bar with friends) is lunacy. I just DVR all the games, and I can typically watch four games in ...
