#73 The Transformers: The Movie

Transformers

Out-of-context-quote from this episode: “He died five days after finishing the voice recording of this – I’m pretty sure this movie killed Orson Welles.”

In an episode that might bring us our first death threats, we take on Transformers: The Movie and…we don’t have the Touch.

Tripp and Andrew get turned into confused moms trying to keep Autobots and Decepticons apart, Optimus Prime is only around for the briefest of moments, no one explains anything about anything at any point in the movie at all, Orson Welles died doing something he hated, Prime is a title, not a name, trains can fly?, purple explosions and mystery fights abound, robot squid are a thing? and it mercifully stays under 90 minutes.

All this and more!
