    It was really good.

    Pros: action was great. The transforming is very well done. The comedy works, especially the nerd nods to the original. Lots of destruction.

    Cons: There was some dialogue that was lame. There was a whole "explain everything" segment that was kind of annoying. Some "hacker" needed a screwdriver to modify a computer to use it as a Morse code generator.

    I don't remember transformers that well. I watched the cartoon and collected the toys, but I was really young and not into it that much.

    yeah, me too. I got an almost-complete stack of the original comics #1-80 a while ago, and I have been reading them. The movie doesn't rely very much on the original storylines.

    Soundwave had the coolest voice. Most of the other transformers sounded retarded, gay or whiny. Soundwave was badass.

    I saw it today and thought it was great. I just loved the fact that they but Scorpy in it :D On a side note, did anyone else get the trailer that had the people throwing a party for someone going away and then there is a huge explosion outside and the statue o liberty's head lands near by? All it said was the release date. Just wondering what the name of it is.

    There is no "official title" yet. It has a fake name given to it so far called "Cloverfield." There is isnt really enough info yet to make any assumptions on content.

    I heard about it, but there was a line to get my ticket, so I didn't get to see it.
    I guess J.J. Abrams is directing.

    Official movie website: http://www.1-18-08.com/
    Official release date: January 18, 2008
    Unofficial Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cloverfield
    IMDB page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1060277/

    Possible other sites linked to the movie:
    www.ethanhaaswasright.com
    www.ethanhaaswaswrong.com

    Part of the Ethan Haas site refers to Cthulu.

    I would say that its a new Godzilla movie.
    My reasons are as such
    1) The guy is going to Japan, which is Godzilla movie central.
    2) There is a huge stomp, and a roar before every event.
    3) It takes place in the same area as the last American Godzilla movie.

    However, I really like the whole Handheld Camera approach sofar :D

    Transformers = Very Good

    Movie trailer clip: A monster movie, either about Godzilla, or some other new creation... We (my daughter and I) both agreed with Wulf about the Japan and roaring references...

    Although the main consensus seems to trend towards Godzilla, I find it hard to believe that another Godzilla movie is coming out, unless it's a sequel to the last one (where it laid eggs in MSG)...

    Wasn't there a Godzilla flick back in the late 80's, then again in 1998? I guess if you say, every 10 years or so, possible...

    Except there has never been a "good" Godzilla movie. imo Maybe it's about time one came out.

    Yeah, I think this is going to be in some way tied into the last American Godzilla movie. I guess we have to wait and see though :(
