Classic Hasbro Movies

Hotblooded Pinkie has the right idea.
The Hub has decided to air some good ol' Hasbro classics again. Thursday at 3pm ET, the Hub will be airing the original 1987 G.I. Joe movie, and on Friday at 3pm ET, the Hub will be airing the original 1986 Transformers movie. And trust me, if you've never seen the original Transformers movie, you don't know what you've been missing. With Leonard Nimoy as Galvatron, Orson Welles as Unicron, and Eric Idle as Wreck-Gar, it's really something to behold. Not to mention that the soundtrack features "The Touch" by Stan Bush and "Dare to Be Stupid" by Weird Al Yankovic.

  1. I do believe I am one of the only people on the planet that actually likes Michael Bay. I also loved the Transformers movies.

    In fact I pretty much enjoy every single movie I watch. Sure sometimes I run across a movie that isn't amazing (Ghost Rider 2 comes to mind) but I'm still able to enjoy it. Very few movies are completely joyless to me (I'm talking about normal big budget action, scifi, fantasy movies, not random weird movies or B list fare. I don't usually watch dramas, comedies, romance, or things along those line either.) I literally can't think of a movie that I actually just straight up despise. Think of all the movies that the internet loves to hate, I pretty much like all of them.

    Pretty much ever day when I'm searching for movie news I come across posts that are "Movie x sucks, I hate actor/ director Y, this is a stinking pile of crap, people who like this should go kill themselves, stop wasting your money on insert insult here" I can get not liking a movie but when these people just seem to take it on a personal, life ending level just seems absolutely ridiculous to me.

    If I were to believe the internet, then it would seem I have bad taste in movies. Well, if that means I'm not filled to the brim with burning anger all the time and that I can actually watch movies and have a blast with just about anything that comes along, then I'll just take having bad taste in movies.

    1. Okay then, I guess I need to clarify. I don't particularly HATE Bayformers. I really enjoyed the first one, then the second one just a little less, and the third one a little less than that... The movies are well thought out and have great special effects, but the action scenes often get so hectic that it feels impossible to tell what's going on. "Um, I'm not sure, but I think Soundwave just died... Wait, they killed Soundwave!? *RAGE*" Which brings up another thing I disliked, the horrible perversion of beloved characters. "So, Shockwave is now a giant tentacle monster? ...Giggity?" Plus, the Transformers' designs are so overly complicated that, while certainly very impressive, it almost hurts my eyes just looking at them, especially when they're moving. Plus, Shia LaBeouf's character was really annoying in the third one...

      Sorry for the silly rant from the big Transformers fan that I am, but yeah... The Bay films weren't bad, they just could have been done a bit better... and they felt really weird to me. Lol.

      And yeah, I'd say that I watch plenty of movies from just about every genre, and it's really rare that I'll find one I can actually say I hate. But as I've said, people should have the right to enjoy whatever they want.

      Also, yeah, sometimes it's just not a good idea to trust views expressed on the internet. People often just use the internet to vent about their smallest complaints... Which is exactly what I just did. XD

    2. I wasn't particularly aiming that at you, it's just something that I see all the time and thought this would be a good place to talk about it.

      Shockwave the tentacle monster was awesome, I'd watch an entire movie about him trying to integrate into society but since he's a giant tentacle monster thing he faces negative stereotypes, but in the end he saves the community he live in from a threat and then they accept him.

      I'll give you the it can get hectic at times argument, but I'm in the "giant robots from out space that can transform should probably have a fairly complicated design" camp.

      Also, Dromaeosaur, I'm sorry I have to say this, but you're crazy. The third one was the best one. It was a little slow in the first half, but the second half was just straight mind melting goodness. Galvin can back me up on this. I would suggest you go watch our video review of Transformers 3, but it was done way back when we I had no idea how to make videos, so it's better that you don't.


      Now I'm not saying they're perfect movies or anything, but they're one of my favorites.
