Transformers Released on Blu-ray (and again on DVD) in Australia

Written by Big Bot on October 11, 2008 | DVD,News,Paramount,Transformers movie (2007) | Tags: ,

Sorry, forgot to post this on Thursday! Aussie fans now have the chance to watch Michael Bay’s Transformers on Blu-ray, with the release of the Two Disc Special Edition last Thursday. The set is exactly the same as the North American and UK version released last month.

Also out today down under are the Transformers 1 disc editions with the Optimus Prime and Bumblebee masks, but we recommend you give them a miss unless you are a mask collector, or need something for a fancy dress costume.

Transformers Ranked 309 in Empire’s Latest Movie Survey

Written by Big Bot on September 23, 2008 | News,Transformers movie (2007) | Tags: ,

Empire Magazine have released the first 300 entries in their latest and geatest poll: The 500 Greatest Movies Of All Time. Surprisingly, Transformers is represented with the 2007 movie being ranked at 309, ahead of other comic/kids movies such as X-Men 2, Spider-Man 2, Iron-Man, Star Wars Episode III and a lot of Disney/Pixar titles.

The likelihood of the original Transformers The Movie in the top 200 is very slim, but we can hope.

Transformers out on BD in UK

Written by Big Bot on September 8, 2008 | News,Paramount,Transformers movie (2007) | Tags: ,

Less than a week after North America, the UK now has Transformers on Blu-ray. The 2 disc set is exactly the same, with BD-LIve features and all the material from the DVD and HD DVD releases.

There is no word on if a store (maybe Asda) are stocking the ROTF videos like Wal*Mart did.

Megatron in Top Movie SuperVillians

Written by Big Bot on July 19, 2008 | News,Transformers movie (2007) | Tags: ,

Yahoo! Movies have written a special feature about their top supervillians to celebrate The Dark Knight villian, The Joker. Megatron is featured as the fourth photo on the list, for his short role in the Transformers movie. Joined in the list are other recent villians such as Davy Jones, Agent Smith, Magneto and Lord Voldemort.

Here’s how they describe the big bad robot:

A robot that shrinks down into a handgun that other robots have to hold to shoot? Not exactly a threat to the planet. So it’s no surprise that the leader of the Decepticons was given a new “alien jet” vehicle mode for the movie. Not that he needed to turn into something to wreak havoc; he tears poor Jazz in half with his bare hands.
