Here's some Optimus Prime quotes from the very first Micheal Bay directed Transformers movie in 2007. A few of them are classic quotes culled from the animated series and the original animated Transformers: The Movie.

Quotes from Revenege of the Fallen can be found here.
  • [Opening Movie line Prime Quote] Before time began, there was...the Cube. We know not where it comes from, only that it holds the power to create worlds and fill them with life. That is how our race was born. For a time we lived in harmony, but like all great power, some wanted it for good...others for evil. And so, began the war. A war that ravaged our planet until it was consumed by death. And the Cube was lost to the far reaches of space. We scattered across the galaxy, hoping to find it and rebuild our home. Searching every star, every world. And just when all hope seemed lost, message of a new discovery drew us to an unknown planet called...Earth. But we were already too late.
  • Freedom is the right of all sentient beings. [Prime and the Autobot's creed]
  • [Introduction to Sam] My name is Optimus Prime. We are autonomous robotic organisms from the planet Cybertron.
  • What's crackin little bitches? [Jazz introducing himself to Sam and Michela]
  • [The Robot steps on Ron Witwicky's backyard decorations] Oops! [to Sam] Sorry, my bad.
  • Transformers[gazes at Jazz's corpse] Aww, Jazz...We lost a great comrade, but gained new ones. [referring to the Sam and the soldiers] Thank you, all of you. You honor us with your bravery.
  • We've learned Earth's languages through the World Wide Web.
  • [Prime to Sector 7 personnel] Taking the children was a bad move. Autobots, relieve them of their weapons!


  • Autobots, roll out! (classic quote from the cartoon series)
  • Autobots, re-con!
  • It's you and me, Megatron!
  • [Prime to Megatron] At the end of this day, one shall stand...one shall fall
  • [Optimus looking at Megatron's destroyed body] You left me no choice, brother.
  • [Bumblebee pops an oil filter at Simmons, then leaks lubricant over the Sector 7 personnel as if he were urinating on him] Bumblebee, stop lubricating the man!
  • [What has become Prime's classic film ending quote ] With the Allspark gone, we cannot return life to our planet. But fate has yielded its own reward: a new world to call home. We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight, but watching over them in secret, waiting...protecting. I have witnessed their capacity for courage, and though we are worlds apart, like us, there's more to them than meets the eye. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message to any surviving Autobots taking refuge among the stars: We are here. We are waiting.
  • Written on the side of the police car robot, Barricade, was the logo 'to punish and enslave' which is a play on American police officers motto of 'protect and serve'. The front quarter police logos have the Decepticon symbol on them and the writing "Pacis Quod Alcedonia", Latin for "Still, Halcyon Days of Peace", and "Incorporated since June 1865".

Transformers 2007 Quotes


megatron


This was the first Micheal Bay movie. Megatron proved to be just as a bugger as his cartoon version, and just as mean.

Megatron: "Humans don't deserve to live."
Prime: "They deserve to choose for themselves!"

-

Jazz: Is that all you got, Megatron?
Megatron: Come here, you little cretin!
[
Megatron makes a grab at Jazz, but Jazz opens fire with his blaster]
Jazz: You want a piece of me? You want a piece?
Megatron: No, I want TWO!

Megatron then pulls Jazz into two pieces.

Optimus Prime: It's you and me, Megatron...
Megatron: No, it's just ME, Prime!
Optimus Prime: At the end of this day, one shall stand, one shall fall!
Megatron: You still fight for the weak! That is why you lose!
-
Starscream: I live to serve you, Lord Megatron...
Megatron: Where is the Cube?
Starscream: The humans have taken it!
Megatron: You fail me yet again, Starscream... get them!
Megatron: Humans don't deserve to live!
Optimus Prime: They deserve to choose for themselves!
Megatron: Then you will die with them!
[
throws Prime away and readies his cannon]
Megatron: Join them in extinction!
Optimus Prime: It's you and me, Megatron...
Megatron: No, it's just ME, Prime!
Optimus Prime: At the end of this day, one shall stand, one shall fall!
Megatron: You still fight for the weak! That is why you lose!

The second Bay movie, it was a prolonged punch up between Autobots and Decepitcons with an inane plot.

Megatron: "Isn't the future of our race worth the cost of one human life?"
Optimus Prime: "You'll never stop at one!"

"I am alpha and omega"

JJ Reviews: Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen


revenge of the fallen movie poster

So like I made it to Revenge of the Fallen.

Short Review: Giant Alien Robots beat the crap out each other.

Longer Review:

Having dialed the brain to mental age of 10, I went in to the movie expecting to enjoy robots bashing the crap out of each other. And that's exactly what I got. So it's win win in that regard.

If you are not expecting Casablanca, you may like it. Other wise you'll call Micheal Bay a talentless hack (which he really isn't, he's not derivative, he clearly has his own unique style).

The movie should actually be called The Attempted Revenge of the Fallen because it's a rule the Autobots never lose so therefore the villan must fail, and due to a ridiculous convoluted plot the Fallen failed.

For me, it's about the robots and the small moments. Bumblebee's animations when reacting to Sam are fantastically done. The fist bumb of Mudflap and Skids was touching. Though most people will say they are the Jar Jar Binks of the movie, but I kind of liked their goofy slapstick. Perhaps only 10 year olds get it.

The scene where Optimus Prime takes on Megatron, Starscream and another decepticon I didn't recognise in a forest was a highlight of the movie. Starscream loosing an arm was cool and having to carry it with him and then being beaten with it by Megatron was classic transformers.

Overall ROTF was a fun but long movie which could have done with some edits, removing Sam's Roomate character would have been a good start. It has great action scenes, big explosions and Megan Fox:

Revenge of the Fallen Movie Quotes



Revenge of the Fallen Movie Quotes.

Transformers 2 is out at last and Sam and co have trotted out some
badly acted lines, here's some of the choicer quotes.


An er... fallen Demolisher: "The Fallen will rise again!"
Optimus: "Not today." Prime then unleashes a cannon blast to the face.

Optimus Prime to Sam: Fate rarely calls upon us at a moment of our
choosing.

Wheelie: Is that the best you got, huh? Is that best you can do?
Mikaela Banes: What are you doing here, you little freak?
[Mikeala burns Wheelies left eye off with a soldering iron]
Wheelie: That's my eye, you crazy bitch! Easy Warrior Goddess, I'm
just a little salvage scrap drone.
Mikaela Banes: Then I'm your worst nightmare.



Here's a picture of his nightmare.

Megatron: "Isn't the future of our race worth the cost of one human life?"
Optimus Prime: "You'll never stop at one!"

Soundwave makes an appearance too with the minimal quote of 'Soundwave
acknowledges.'



Optimus Prime,"I'll take you all on!" as he takes on Megatron, Starscream and Grindor during the massive forest fight.
Jetfire came up with this classic quote:
"My father was a wheel! The first wheel! And do you know what he
transformed into? Nothing! But he did it with honor!"

The always close but no cigar, Starscream:" Cowards do survive..."





The Fallen: Die like your brothers!
Optimus Prime: They were your brothers too!






Agent Simmons: [positioned under giant robot Devastator on the Egyptian Pyramid to give a position for the rail gun, two wrecking balls are hanging from Devastator's crotch area] I am directly below enemy scrotum.

And Prime's end of film, closing quote , "Our races, united by a history long forgotten, and a future we shall face together. I am Optimus Prime, and I send this message so that our past will always be remembered. For in these memories, we live on."

All Blacks: Song and dance about the National Anthem


all blacks singing national anthem

Is that a bird or a plane?

So like rugby journo Marc Hinton's
song and dance about something to do with the All Blacks disrepecting the nation, the Anzacs, the baby jesus and yo' mama by not singing the national anthem is amusing.

Amusing for two reasons. I think he's taking the piss out of the reader. Any one who goes on that bloody long about something as unserious as the All black's abilities as baritones and tenors must be taking the piss. Must be...

The second reason is the 400 plus commentators who seem to be on side with the face value of the text, bemoaning the "rude behaviour of the All Blacks" and labelling the All Blacks as not being "a proud team".

Give me strength. Why should we care about the song? It's asking god to defend New Zealand. It's asking the impossible. It's like asking the taniwha to protect a highway or something. It's like asking Chloe to defend Wainuiomata from the swine flue with out her tiger slippers.

The smart one's are in the team are probably athiests and object to singing god defend new zealand on principle!

Why do the All Blacks need to sing a song any way? Good looking people are paid to sing the anthem any way! Admittedly they are sometimes worse than the what the entire pack could muster but thats beside the point.

Why also give passion to the song, when you have the haka coming up. That's when the Blacks turn it on. Not for some bloody triple star.

What had Colin Meads said about this situation? Probably something about man is a steak eating island I imagine.

-

Not a proud team? Look at the passion and fire when the AB's line up to do the haka. When Piri Weepu does the call, I get a lil scared on the couch.

I was thinking the All Blacks were gonna use the new Kapa o Pango haka, to show France they meant business in the second test match. But they didn't. Which is genius really because even though they were there to do the business, they were just showing Le France they were just another team and not worthy of Kapa o Pango. This subtley is of course lost on Chabal.

You can also imagine them doing this same tactic in the Rugby World Cup Semi Final but not the Final* as well.

*Don't laugh, All Blacks gonna win the cup.


What do Autobots eat?


optimus prime transformers


So like @coupdemain asked the question: "if autobots actuaaaallyyyyy ate food, what would they eat? go ask Optimus Prime pleeeeeeease :)"

If you thought Autobots ate energon, you'd be wrong. I did go and ask Optimus Prime and he told me that Autobots eat all kinds of things. Grimlock in particular likes to eat petro rabbits while Jazz likes to eat Ella Fitzgerald records. Prime himself enjoys the odd pie and coke.

Optimus also told me on the QT that Megatron eats kittens, Starscream puppies and Soundwave eats puppies with kitten sauce.

Wendy Petrie Fist Pump David Bain Trial



Below is Wendy Petrie the video (not playing) that TVNZ apparently had removed from Youtube. The above is a different service.



So that's Wendy Petrie giving a fist pump during the David Bain trial news feeds. Everyone was a twitter that she was signalling her joy that David Bain was found not guiltly. Which is not the case as she is clearly just telling the talking head in the studio that the verdict is about to come.

So she is simply fist pumping that the feed went well!

wendy petrie fist pump

I am very surprised David Bain was found not guilty, as the circumstancial evidence appears to have pointed in only one direction. The jury clearly did not see it that way, believing reasonable doubt existed. 


I would love to know what the jury thought that meant (they actually had to ask the judge) - apparently NZ law prevents jurours from telling cases as they saw it to the media.  Of course like the entire NZ population less twelve jurors, I haven't followed every inch of the case so I'm guilty of trial by media as the best of them.

On hearing the verdict I opined the jury was probably a bunch of people who failed School C and had time to sit on juries but it appears there were a few people with degrees which gives me some confidence the Bain jury were at the least not muppets

David Farrar does a round up about what he thinks are the things the jury had to have thought about to convict or not. Trial by blog is too easy, but this does paint a fair picture of what the jurors thought David or his Father did or didn't do.

I wonder what they would have thought if they had known about the 'rape' evidence that was suppressed. People will be talking about that for years to come.

What irks me about the commentary I've seen around the interwebz is how many people think David Bain was found innocent. People like Paul Holmes's sub editor should know better. David was found not guilty, and this was probably only because the jury could not be sure about their er.. convictions on the matter. There was no evidence to suggest David was innocent, rather not enough to prove he was guilty and therefore could only be found not guilty. 


Update: "I shot the prick,'' David Bain is alleged to have said these words in the famous 111 call. The Supreme Court has released a document exmplaing why this recording could not be considered as evidence for Bain's trial. The document clearly shows why the recording could not be used as evidence where noted linguistics, blind to the suggestion of what was said, could not come up with "I shot the prick" as being what recorded.

James Cameron's Avatar Movie Concept Art Pictures

James Cameron's Avatar Movie Concept Designs


Here's some of the concept artwork that went into the design of the biggest movie 2010 had to offer, Avatar. 

A mish mash of storyboards, artwork from the game and design sketches are yours to enjoy.


The above image is some early concept art of the heroine of Avatar, Neytiri.

More of the blue princess
This is next image is a larger one of the above of Ney’tiri. Her colour reminds me of Cortana from the Halo games:

Blue Smurf?


The next two shots are from the video game version of Avatar. They were first displayed at Microsoft's E3 in 2009 and were some of the first images released that showcased the look and feel of Pandora. 

avatar cameron film

Yes, they may *only* be from the video game but they do show the concept Cameron was going for with Avatar and how close they were to how the Avatar movie ended up.

Does any of this remind you of the Halo games? It should as those games were totally based on the look of Aliens that Cameron designed and directed:

Helicopter and Dragon
This concept art for Avatar's mechanical man below is very reminiscent of Cameron's Aliens' film exosuit which Ripley wore in the show down with the mother alien. 

Indeed, a lot the ships and design that appeared in Aliens was recycled by James Cameron. 

This lead to some fans of the Halo game to think he had stolen design ideas from that series of games, however it quickly became apparent that Bungie had originally borrowed from Aliens!
