"The Transformers: The Movie" put us in a very strange position. Should we view the movie as children of the '80s, as adults in a 2020 pandemic, or through the eyes of Gen Z?
And that led to more questions: Why do Autobots turn into cars at the worst times? Is something creepy going on with Rodimus Prime and Daniel? Is Spike the worst dad in the galaxy?
Sometimes, a movie is just meant to be fun and sell toys. Sense of scale doesn't matter. Storylines are secondary, and the deaths of beloved characters just lead to really detailed dance scenes.
"The Transformers: The Movie" had everything: a puckering space butthole, dozens of named characters that basically looked the same, a kick-ass butt-rock soundtrack, Orson Welles, Leonard Nemoy, Judd Nelson, Frank Welker, Robert Stack, Scatman Crothers, and the Micro Machines Man.
As the theme song goes, this one was more than meets the eye.
