Transformers: In theaters for 25 years

I thought I would highlight an article from an old friend of mine over on his blog.

Like Mark, I'm from the original "Transformers Generation" and I'm still emotionally tied to that movie.

Unlike Mark, I didn't get to experience it in a movie theater. I recall watching it a friend's house after renting it at a video store. I'm not sure my own family even had a VCR at the time (we didn't get our first VHS player until I was in middle school).

I would love to wax poetically about how I feel about this movie, but I'm afraid I would only manage to embarass myself publically. If you're a fan... you know you love this movie.... if you aren't... you're probably shaking your head right now.

Transformers: The Movie*. For modern-day Transformers fans, it probably comes as a bit of a surprise that the franchise had a theatrical movie many years before the Michael Bay live-action movies started setting box office records. But this was the Transformers movie for my generation of Transformers fans.
