Optimus Prime... is dead. Whole-lee fuck.
It's pretty much become a meme but... I still cried.
I know that I normally don't swear online. A friend lent me the 1986 Transformers movie. This thing absolutely does NOT fuck around! It beats your face in from cel one. I was honestly shocked at least five times. I'm just... I'm still kind of shaken. This is what 1986 kids went to see? Forget Mulan. This sucker will smack the man right through your soul. How did this "animated obliteration scenario" escape an R rating?
Admittedly, it's not a bad movie; just a very "bold" one. I found myself admiring some of the animation. Its soundtrack is memorable with tracks like Weird Al's "Dare to be Stupid" and Stan Bush's "The Touch" taking center stage. Even though I've seen many of the plot points mentioned, their cinematic got to me. Got to be in awe of a 30-year-old "animated toy commercial" that can still "roll out" the emotions - especially on a first time viewer.
