Director Michael Bay (Armageddon, Pearl Harbor) helms this live-action version of the popular cartoon series, which finds the heroic Autobots and the evil Decepticons landing on planet Earth and fighting for Energon, their most valued power source.

For centuries, two races of robotic aliens -- the Autobots and the Decepticons -- have waged a war, with the fate of the universe at stake. When the battle comes to Earth, all that stands between the evil Decepticons and ultimate power is a clue held by young Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf). An average teenager, Sam is consumed with everyday worries about school, friends, cars and girls. Unaware that he alone is mankind's last chance for survival, Sam and his friend Mikaela (Megan Fox) find themselves in a tug of war between the Autobots and Decepticons. With the world hanging in the balance, Sam comes to realize the true meaning behind the Witwicky family motto - "No sacrifice, no victory!"

#10
Awesome price!
The format may die but all my films won't instantly disintegrate! there will be literally hundreds of region free HD-DVD films available for cheap :)
#11
For anyone who has ordered from these before. How long does delivery take roughly?
#12
Excellent Price cheers
I have a HD DVD and Blu Ray and I love how people say HD DVD is dead...
...worst case scenario? I'm gonna get some movies for my collection on HD DVD that are the same quality as Blu Ray for a fraction of the price.
#13
Great price seeing as it as selling for almost double that before Christmas.

HD-DVD maybe dying but its far from dead yet and there will be a lot of good deals coming soon.

Transformers is on an 18 month timed exclusive I think. It was always going to come to BlueRay eventually :roll:
#15
Michael Bay went mad when he heard it could only be released on HD-DVD, he's pretty happy now obviously. Should be out on Blu-ray soon. Hope theirs a god deal then too!

Won't rate as I personally don't think HD-DVD's are a good deal.

I am really P****D, that a Sony owned format is gonna have the monopoly on the hd disc market!
But hey thats what the masses have been buying, and the studios are gonna go with what format sells most, never mind the fact that hd dvd is LIGHT years ahead of blue ray in EVERY respect!
I will probally bow to the dark side of blue ray at some point, but for the TIME being i am gonna enjoy transformers and the matrix boxset EXCLUSIVLEY on hd dvd.
Then i am gonna enjoy the FLOOD of reduced to clear hd dvd discs about to come our way!:p

By the time this comes out on blu-ray and people start running around shouting "I just bought Transformers on blu-ray" the general resonse from people will either be "Yeah I saw that at the cinema a few years ago" or "I've had it on HD DVD for over a year" or even "I bought that last week on DVD for £2.99." At this point the blu-ray purchaser will point out something like "but this has dolby true HD sound." At this point all observers will shake their heads and walk away while muttering something like "********" under thier breath.

Or maybe only Michael Bay will be happy, in his little blue ray tinted world, and everyone else will go meh!:thumbsup:

Why does every ******* HD DVD post turn into the same debate over and over and over again?

Jeez. :roll:

Its just everyone trying to justify their purchases. Blu-ray people are jealous cos the hd-dvd people are getting their movies and hardware for fractions of the price they can get theirs for and hd-dvd people are jealous that the flow of hd-dvd's will stop in a few months while at the same time being happy that the ones that are out are very cheap.

No....

when/if HD DVDs stop being produced, then you just buy the DVD versions :?
#28
I bought this on HD a while back and it is TERRIBLE. It has a completely pointless and boring plot, appallingly rubbish cuts, awful script, annoying characters and even most of the special effects weren't that great (lots of blurry spinning and whirring with a bit of clunking and chattering). Honestly, everything about this film sucks the big one.

Watched it once, was extremely bored, sold it on Ebay. Avoid, wait till it comes on the telly if you must.

The young bird in it is pretty fit though.

thought it was a good movie myself :)

I've had HDDVD and BLU RAY and IMO HDDVD was the better of the two. Picture quality was exactly the same on both as far as I could tell, but the bonus content on HDDVD was much better (PIP n all that). But as the VHS / BetaMax format wars showed ('wars'??? Saddo geek bags, get a grip) it's about popularity not quality and so HDDVD is on its way out.
Personally I've since sold both players and got back to standard DVDs with an upscaler anyway as HD films at the mo are a total ripoff. 20 year old films that are in DVD bargain bins for £1.99 costing £20+. Then when your mates come round and they go, "Is this in HD? Looks the same as DVD to me! What's the point? This film's ****. This was on the telly about 15 years ago - and 3x a year ever since!" And they're right.

All you HD geeks are mugs. **** old films at robbing prices and really, it only looks slightly better than the DVD version. (with the exception of Hot Fuzz cos that did actually look ace - still 3x too much to buy tho).

Carry on arguing knobheads.

While I do agree with you that HD media is overpriced, I am yet to pay over £17.99 for 1 film (heroes cost a bit more but that was 7 discs and one of the best quality box sets I've ever seen). The quality issue does not sound right either as I see a huge difference between DVD and HD DVD / blue-ray (maybe I sit closer??). The only 20+ year old film that I have bought is blade runner (5 discs for around £16.50) and the difference between the DVD version and HD version is incredible. I really like the film and it looks like it was made yesterday. I'm more than happy with HD and just buy the films that I like (I have double dipped with batman begins, equilibrium and a few free ones), I'm not buying films to collect or just because they look good and I'm happy to pay a premium.
