Yeah.....Hasbro is making a My Little Pony movie, for a wide theatrical release, it's slated to have the writer from Ice Age: Continental Drift to be on board and supposed to come out in 2017......my thoughts on this are as follows: Okay? Seriously, I'm not sure how to think about this, the brony in me is excited, but the movie buff/geek in me is just meh, and it's not because the writer for the movie has only a mediocre sequel to a half decent movie under his belt, but.....look at Hollywood's track record with movies based on toys or cartoons shows, Bayformers, the new TMNT movie, Battleship, GI Joe, The Last Airbender......movies based on cartoons and toys have a similar track record to videogame movies with a few exceptions, so yeah, there is a lot of room for error about this, on the other hand, the writers and staff from FiM are gonna be involved as well and if the SpongeBob movie is anything to prove, if you keep the original writers, you're gonna do something right so I don't know what to think about this, so until a trailer comes out or some promotional images, I have no opinion on this.

Pt 3 of Transformers Dream Voice Cast
Now we're getting in with the Decepticons.

Megatron: Clancy Brown- Clancy has that voice that just exudes awesome, he's like Keith David that way, and he's also voiced characters that were fierce warriors like the Kurgan from Highlander and cunning villains like Lex Luthor from the Bruce Timm DC animated universe, which to me makes him a great pick to voice the leader of the Decepticons

Starscream: Mark Hamill- Fun fact, Mark was originally picked to voice Starscream in Transformers Prime, but for some reasons I do not know, they went for Steve Blum, who did a great job, but wouldn't be awesome to have Mark Hamill lend his voice to the underhanded number two of Megatron?

Soundwave: Tom Kane- Must I say it? Tom did an amazing job voicing Ultron in Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and I'd like to see him bring that kind of performance to Soundwave.

Shockwave: Ron Perlman- Aside from Ron being my favorite actor and voicing one of my favorite Decepticons, he just has that voice that fits Shockwave, a calm, yet sinister tone to it, like what he did with Slade in the good Teen Titans cartoon.

Lugnut: Robin Atkin Downes- It's hard in finding voice actors for different characters so I was lazy and picked a guy who voiced another big, strong, evil guy

Nightbird: Kari Wahlgren- same reason as Lugnut, I needed someone who could have a very sinister yet sensual tone to her voice

Predaking: Steve Blum- Yeah, I wanted Predaking to sound like a badass rouge who could turn against the Decepticons, and giving that Steve Blum is everywhere now or days and he's voiced characters like that, why not?

Dinobot(to be renamed): Steve Downes- I wanted someone who could sound like a soldier like Dinobot, and have a sense of honor and heroism to him, and kind of keep to how Dinobot was in Beast Wars but still do something new with him

Blackarachnia: Vanessa Marshall- I wanted someone who can sound evil, sexy, and sound like she can take charge and since I'm already using voice actors form Avengers EMH, might as well go full circle

Lockdown: Brad Garett- Wanted something new with Lockdown, and I was thinking he'd be somewhat of the comic relief to the Decepticons, but instead of being a victim of slapstick or getting into hijinks, I was thinking Lockdown could be something like Hellboy mixed with Lobo, hence the actor pick

Yeah....remember 17 years ago, and it was announced that an American film studio was gonna make a Godzilla movie, using effects on par with Jurassic Park? Remember the disappointment from fans and casual film goers a year later when the most memorable scenes were the scenes that were ripped off from Jurassic Park and the one line "That's a lot of fish"? Lets talk about that shall we?

Before I go any further, I want to stress, that as a movie on its own, Godzilla 98' is an okay movie, the effects for the time were really good and it was your basic monster on the loose story, but as James Rolfe(AVGN) and many other critics said before, if they called it something other than Godzilla it wouldn't have too much of a problem, hell, title aside the one thing that keeps me from liking this movie any more than I do is the two main leads, Nick and Audrey, who are terrible characters played by awful actors, but I'll talk about them when I get to them so without any further ado, lets get started.

Just because it did well in the box office doesn't mean it's good- This is something that a lot of die hard fans of this movie(by die hard I mean fans who think that Zilla is better than Godzilla) bring up that on it's opening weekend, Godzilla 98' made $55,726,951 in the box office, that's all fine and dandy adjust for inflation by today's standards it would of made about $81 million, but that said it didn't meet the numbers the studio predicted (beating out The Lost World Jurassic Park which was at the time the film with the highest box office numbers on its opening weekend) and the reception from fans and critics alike was scathing, so much so that if there was a sequel to this movie, then it would be a bomb on par with movies today like The Last Airbender and Dragonball Evolution and even as a kid, (who was really into Godzilla) I was pissed off when I saw this movie the first time, mainly because Zilla was a total pussy but now that I'm older there's other things that piss me off about this movie. And for those who still think being financially successful equals a good movie, then look at a film by Michael Bay, the Twilight Movies, and the Resident Evil movies and tell me again how that's possible.

Fuck, the human characters are annoying It's been 16 years, we can drop the thing about Zilla not being Godzilla, Toho bought the character and renamed him back in 2004, but as bad at being Godzilla Zilla was, he was still the best thing in this movie, way better than the human characters, my god. It'd be one thing if the characters were bland and just like your typical monster movie cast, but nope, Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin decides to give us Matthew Broderick in that stupid beret, that blonde reporter bitch, Sam's dad from Bayformers, hell the animated series when it came out it made sure that the characters looked NOTHING like their actor counterparts and blonde reporter bitch and Animal are side characters that should tell you something about the movie, hell as I said, aside from Nick and Audrey, as annoying the characters are, they're alright, yes, they're annoying as hell, but they fit their roles, the gung ho soldiers, the nerdy scientists, the mysterious government agent, they did their jobs, but Nick and Audrey.......Nick is a fucking non entity, who was about as useful as Sam from Bayformers, and Audrey is a colossal bitch, she ruined Nick's career and life, STOLE government property, puts herself and Animal in danger by going into the nest and she really didn't need to be there other than to be the dumbass in distress for Nick to save.

It's nothing special, the movie is just generic The movie was alright but as a lot of people said, you'd slap any other title on this movie, call the monster anything else, and it wouldn't be that different, if you called this the Beast from 20,000 Fathoms or Gorgo, or the Giant Behemoth, it'd be the same movie, if Zilla was more like Godzilla in both how it acted and how it looked, even with all of the other problems, it wouldn't of gotten the reaction from fans and critics that it did but it wouldn't be anything special, hell we'd probably still have gotten the 2014 reboot even if a sequel or even trilogy were made.

Zilla is not Godzilla, and never will be I know this has been said to death, but there are still some people, (particularly a certain deviant on this site who I wont name but he knows who he is) who want to call Zilla, Godzilla, and that's just not true, Toho bought the character, they renamed him and that makes it official, DC renamed their Captain Marvel to Shazam, this isn't me as a fan who hates the character of Zilla so much that I refuse to call him Godzilla, I'm just telling you the truth

Pt 2 of Transformers Dream Voice Cast by morgrag
Pt 2 of Transformers Dream Voice Cast
Here's part two where I finish off my casting for the Autobots

Prowl: Kevin Conroy- I had this idea of having Prowl being the stern badass like Batman so there you go

Grimlock: Fred Tatasciore- Again, it's my reasoning for having R Lee Emery as Kup, I just listened to Fred as Hulk in Earth's Mightiest Heroes and even in Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. and thought he'd be perfect

Slag: Diedrich Bader- For the Dinobots, I wanted to go for a theme for all of them to be more like warriors with a primal spirit rather than have them be animals, and I just have this image of Diedrich voicing a character that just loves to fight and always picks a fight with the other Dinobots when not fighting the Decepticons

Snarl: Bill Fagerbakke- For Snarl, I was thinking something more like Broadway from Gargoyles mixed with Bulkhead from Transformers Animated, a fierce warrior in battle, but at his core, a gentle giant/lovable oaf

Sludge: David Kaye- For Sludge, being the biggest of the Dinobots, I had this thought that he'd be very prideful and feel that he's better than the others, of course this would get him an aft kicking from Grimlock, which would be hilarious

Swoop: Dante Basco- I liked the idea in the Rage of the Dinobots comic from IDW that Swoop was the young rookie, so I decided to play with that and have him be the youngest of the Dinobots, and have him be a lot like Zuko from Avatar season three, with a bit of Jake Long's cockiness thrown in with Swoop thinking he's invincible much like how a lot of teens see themselves

Hot Shot: Nolan North- Like Bumblebee, I like to see Hot Shot be the jokey character, but unlike Bumblebee who would be cocky and a show off, I was thinking Hot Shot would be a wise cracker, constantly cracking jokes against the Decepticons to get them mad, kind of like Spiderman

Flare Up: Tara Strong- I was thinking making Flare Up a fun loving/flirty character, who's a mix of Miko from TF Prime, and Jack Harkness from Doctor Who

Perceptor: Sam Vincent- With Sam Vincent there are two voices he does, the nerdy type like with Double Dee from Ed Edd n Eddy and the young hero type like with Aerrow from Storm Hawks, so I was thinking of having a character whose personality is similar to Double Dee but with Aerrow's voice

Wheeljack: Grant Goodeve- As much as I loved Wheeljack in Prime, I was thinking on taking his character back to his routes and have him be the team's engineer(heh? heh?)

Next part, we start off the Decepticons

Optimus Prime: Brian Bloom- I liked the idea of having a Transformers series where the Optimus of that show wasn't all that experienced like in Animated and in Beast Wars, and while Brian's performance as Captain America doesn't convey that, it does show a leader that still has a lot to learn, whether it's about earth culture, understanding those under him and living with humans, more or less, have Optimus be flawed much like he was in the two shows I mentioned but for different reasons

Ultra Magnus: Gary Chalk- I thought it'd be nice and meta for one Optimus Prime voice actor to be the mentor for the current Optimus

Ratchet: Colin Baker- Intelligent, arrogant, and a bit of a grumpy asshole, and I forgot if I was talking about Ratchet or the 6th Doctor

Bumblebee: Matt Hill- I was re-watching Storm Hawks and listened to the character Finn, and realized aside from Michelangelo from TMNT(who is already being voiced perfectly by Greg Cipes) Matt Hill could capture the personality of the young, energetic Bumblebee

Ironhide: Jon DiMaggio- Because A. Markus Phoenix has the gruff voice I imagine Ironhide having, and B. I want to hear Ironhide tell a Decepticon "BITE MY SHINY METAL ASS!"

Arcee: Lucy Lawless- Just needed to think of an actress that can capture the badass fighter side of Arcee made famous in Prime and who better than a woman who not only voiced Wonder Woman, but also played Xena the Warrior Princess

Elita One: Nicole Oliver- For this role, I wanted someone that can be the voice of reason in the team as well as have some authority to her, and when Celestia is in a serious mood, for some reason I just think of a female Optimus Prime, plus again for meta reasons, it'd appeal to fans who ship Celestia with Optimus without having to think of the horrible implications of a giant robot fucking a horse

Kup: R. Lee Emery- Obvious reason is obvious, but seriously, Kup is a veteran, much like Mr. Emery and the character Wildcat from Batman the Brave and the Bold, plus I have this image of Kup going all Drill Sargent on the younger bots and the human characters

Hot Rod: Josh Keaton- Another meta reason for those who watched Transformers Prime, that is all

Chromia: Maryke Hendrikse- The voice actress for Revy playing the lover of Ironhide, who himself is being voiced by Bender....hilarity ensues
