Friendly Film Perspectives: “The Transformers: The Movie” (1986)

Host Matthew Reveles & Sergio Berrueta gear up and roll out with the Autobots in the first animated film featured in this series, 1986’s The Transformers: The Movie. Watch and listen as we discuss the classic nostalgia fest by talking about the music of the 80’s, the random voice cast, and debate if it can be considered anime. We also find out that the ‘nostalgia goggles’ don’t work all the time.
