The Transformers Movie - Hello, inner NERD!

So, is anyone else as stoked about this as I am?

True, I'm a six year old trapped in a 27 year old body, and you might not be, but I am salivating with anticipation over this thing.

Now, I like movies, but, being an actor (used loosely), I understand, unlike some people, that the world does not revolve around these cinematic adventures.

In fact, I'd rather be making movies than watching them.

But there are those rare occasions when I simply cannot wait to see a movie, and oddly enough, this is one of them.

Say what you will, but I'm sure there are thousands of people who have spent quality time with Wheeljack, Megatron, and Optimus Prime.

I admit, the premise is ludicrous. Robots that are aliens that come to earth and just happen to be able to transform into vehicles indigenous to planet Earth.

I mean, I didn't know the Datsun Fairlady 280ZX - (The Autobot Bluestreak) - was so intergalactically popular.

However, the show was extremely entertaining, down to that cool sound they made when the robots would transform.

And the voices! They were awesome, and I'm happy to say the guy who voiced Optimus Prime on the cartoon, Peter Cullen, will be voicing him in the live-action movie.

The best voices belonged to Soundwave and Starscream, though. You might know the Starscream voice better as that of Cobra Commander on G.I. Joe. Done by one of the most famous voice actors ever, Frank Welker. I hope he's still around to do the new movie.

Alright, I've geeked out enough in this post. Join the nerdiness if you want, or shun it, just like you did in high school, you bastards.

Hugs and Handjobs,
