Transformers: 6.5 out of 10.
I was worried about Michael Bay's "Transformers", but it was actually better than I anticipated. I watched it with fellow 1986 Transformers movie fan James, and we both thought it was pretty good.
Good: Bay was smart enough to hire Peter Cullen to voice Optimus Prime. I didn't want to hear any other voice in that role. It's perfect.
Bad: Bumblebee is a a Volkswagen Beetle, not a Chevrolet Camaro. This switcheroo pissed me off throughout.
Good: Bumblebee communicating via his radio was fun. The tunes, the soundbites, it was a nice move.
Bad: Where was the theme song? They could have closed with it instead of Linkin Park. Sure, it's a little cheesy, but a modern spin on it would have been cool.
Good: Two words: Megan Fox.
