Better than the live action adaptations, mostly because it's exactly like the cartoon.

As a nine year-old, dragging my dad to see the latest TV-cartoon-turned-movie, I was completely unprepared for the next 90 minutes. Autobots and Decepticons -- DYING onscreen? Spike and Cliff Jumper -- SWEARING? Optimus Prime -- KILLED by Megatron? Some jackass named Hot Rod -- the SAVIOR of Autobotkind? Orson Welles (yes, THAT Orson Welles, in his final performance) as the voice of Unicron, the planet-eating robot? A FEMALE AUTOBOT??? All of this was more than my pre-pubescent mind could handle. Say what you will about how incredibly the effects are in Michael Bay's new CGI masturbation-thon, but for a certain generation of cartoon lovers, there's only ONE Transformers movie...

The one and only Transformers The Movie...

Yes, I said it. This is the ONLY Transformers movie. Michael Bay should be drawn and quartered for his atrocity of a movie. For those that are too young to remember, or those that just have no clue (I'm looking at you Bay, Mr. "I never saw the show, but I love cars!"), this was the movie that fulfilled the expectations of my generation. It had action, it had (minor) swearing, it had the death of an icon, a believable plot (once again looking at you Mr. Bay), an 80's soundtrack that not only works well for this movie, it also serves as a "musical reminder" of exactly what scene the music played in (who can forget Instruments Of Destruction playing as Ironhide was slaughtered). Also, it has two great actors from the generation before us (Leonard Nimoy and Orson Welles in his final performan...

The original Transformers movie

Growing up in the 80's, there were a lot of cartoons that one could watch and be entertained. And now, as adults, we can still go back and watch those same cartoons for nostalgia, but realize the the shows seem to talk down to kids by over-flexing a sense of drama, like Thundercats did. He-Man cartoons do the same to a degree, and so does cartoons from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
But Transformers cartoons never did such a thing. They presented a story in a way that now, as adults, we can still watch and enjoy with the same vigor that we watched with in our youth, and that's because that Transformers isn't a cartoon that has dated itself to the point that it screams 1980's, and it doesn't talk down to its audience. The characters are multi-dimensional, and they react to each other in in...
