It was a tough to be a kid in 1986. We begged our parents, saved our money and did everything we could to buy the latest Transformers toys, only to see them mercilessly killed off in traumatic fashion. This was Transformers: The Movie (1986).
To help navigate through their childhood trauma, Sid and James welcome Cenate Pruitt, someone who can best be described as a "Transformers Scholar" as they go beyond the scope of a normal episode of Reels & Wheels to discuss not just the cars and the movie, but the far-reaching effects these toys had on our lives, the ins and outs of how they were brought to life in various forms, and some extremely cool behind the scenes stories about the movie.
How does the movie hold up after 30 years? When you strip away the parts that upset you as a kid, is it now fun to watch? And how about Orson Welles! Fat jokes aside, he was a cool guy in his final days. Listen and learn.
