What is your favorite scene from each movie?

Motto: "IMMA M***** F***IN NINJA!!!"
Weapon: Accelerator Rifle
I unlike some other fans absolutley love the movies and would like to know what you guys' favorite scenes are. So if you have time say your favorites a say why you love that scene or those scenes.
My favorite scenes.
Transformers: The Autobots arrival to Earth.
Why?
It was a fun scene to watch with the amazing score and also I loved watching and seeing if I could name them all.(I was just really getting into Transformers at that point.)
Revenge of the Fallen: The Forest Battle!
Why?
This is what you want to see when you pay to go see a movie that is called Transformers, multiple giant robots fighting. Also I'm a sucker for lines like Megatron and Optimus'
"Is the future of our race not worth a single human life?"
"You'll never stop at one. I'll take you all on!" Que epic score and Prime kicking some tailpipe!
Dark of the Moon: The "Trailer Scene" or "Money Shot" or whatever of Optimus going down the road in Chicago and killing probably half the 'Con army in one take!
Why?
Because I'm a murderous psychopath who loves genocide.......or it's because that is one of the few movie scenes where I was astonished and was about to scream "YEAH!" due to me being really into it.

Motto: "The price for peace is war."
Weapon: Gatling Cannon
TF: Blackout totalling a military base. Bonecrusher barreling through a bus. Every scene with Megatron, "JOIN THEM IN EXTINCTION!"

ROTF: Most parts with Megatron, "YOU'RE SO WEAK!"

DOTM: None of the parts with Megatron, *sulk, do nothing*. Sentinel Prime's betrayal and subsequent bad-assery.

Weapon: Acetylene Torch Gun
TF - The entire sequence when Sam is trying to find the glasses and the Autobots are in the backyard. I had tears in my eyes from laughing so hard when they all transformed to vehicle mode in order to remain inconspicuous.

ROTF - How can you not choose the forest fight scene?

DOTM - Little too early to have a favourite yet but this one part stuck with me. It was just a small subtle thing but I loved it when Sam first shows up at NEST, and there's acknowledgement between him and Ironhide and Ratchet. I thought it was cool they gave some props to the bots who were there from the start.

Edit: Damn some of you brought up some other great moments. Ironhide's last hurrah just before Sentinel killed him, (which totally sucked!!!) was awesome, as was Blakout's rampage in the military base. Plus the very first fight between Bumblebee and Barricade gave me goosebumps as it was the first Autobot vs. Decepticon action.

It's really hard to choose for me. Instead I like to think of my favorite shots (without the camera changing)

TF: probably the whole transformation sequence, that goes from Optimus to all the bots and back to autobots

ROTF: Either Optimus coming out of the plane, Ironhide's first tranformation, I'll take you all on, or the scene of BB taking off his mask from killing Rampage, because he looks perfectly real there.

DOTM: Sam flipping out of BB and BB catching him and transforming, the end where BB transforms (again because the CG is so flawless), or the shot of Ironhide getting shot.

TF: The opening scene with Blackout that sent chills down my spine when he made the transforming sound, "When you're looking back at your life, wouldn't you like to say you got in the car?" or Bumblebee hooked up to the two truck and still owning some 'cons.

RotF: The Shanghai opener. One of the few highlights, but still pretty great.

DotM: The freeway/Mexican standoff scene.

First one: Autobots arrival and Lennox shouting "you got 10 back pockets".

Second one: Petra scene before the twins started arguing and fighting and Primes' tomb before Leo said "yo". Also Prime combining with Jetfire's parts and of course forest battle.

Third one: Prime's speech after he came back and save Sam and Epps. Also Mearing's attitude change through out the film is well made (IMO).

There's a few I really like

TF:
Blackout Transforming then destroying the base in Qatar.
Starscream transforming and skidding down the street in Mission city, then jumping up and backflipping into his alt mode and roaring off again.
The Brawl fight.

ROtF:
Constructicons jumping off the boat, then swimming down to revive Megatron.
The whole Shanghai scene.
Bumblebee when Alice is in the car. LOL.

DOTM:
Decepticons arrival in Washington DC - the Garbage truck decepticon is awesome!
Chicago - very cool scene throughout

Was just about to start a thread when I saw this one!

TFTM
- Arrival act ending with the alley scene - goosepimples when Prime scanned and transformed to cab, and the variety of transformation sequences and sounds in the alley really drove home the fact we were in a different age and incarnation

- The Prime vs Bonecrusher scene - fast, furious and totally streetfight that starts fast and ends quick


ROTF
- Shanghai Scene: Prime's rapid mid-air transformations, Sideswipe "Clear a path!" scene
- Forest Fight: Restored all respect to Prime after getting owned in TFTM by Megs
- Jetpack to finale fight: First powermode that looked good, and in retrospect, the last decent fight scene between Prime and Megs

DOTM
- Prime's arrival with Trailer! At last! But ruined by a false showdown between Shockwave and Prime, which is similar to the Gandalf versus Wytch King scene in ROTK (which is why the editors removed that scene!)
- Mexican standoff: All my favourites: Ironhide, Sideswipe and the Dreads in one cool scene!
- Highway fight: the Dreads! I love Parkour and seeing these guys at it... whoo!
- Prime vs Prime: Sentinel must be what Bay meant when he envisioned the fight with The Fallen to be so much more but couldn't due to budget. This is a really epic fight worthy of two Primes... or a final Prime vs Megatron fight :sad:

TF1- The Autobots in Sam's back yard. It would be the only time we got any sort of character development between themselves for the rest of the saga. Close behind would be Ironhide's slow transformation to dodge Brawl's missiles.

TF2- Forest Fight, best scene in the saga too. Ironhide coming in and quoting "Punk ass decepticon!"

TF3-Mexican Standoff and the silent treatment.

I cant name just one from 2007. I felt like such a little boy again watching that movie.

I loved Blackout tearing up the base in Qatar...loved when BB transforms and defends Sam (vs Barricade)...and absolutely was in awe when OP and the 'bots show up and transform to Sam and Mikaela

ROTF..the forest battle is the fight we all paid to see...epic (wish OP woulda stayed dead 'til DOTM or sumthin...wanted to see 'cons win one, ie Empire Strikes Back)

DOTM...not sure yet, several were cool...but I'll go with OP jetpackin in and takin down several 'cons all in one swoop...sweetness

ROTF (2009) - Sideswipe attacking Sideways/Optimus exiting the plane and transforming/the battle in the factory* - The forest battle/Devastator combining - vs the Twins/Bombing - Sam and The Dynasty of Primes/Jetfire's sacrifice - Jetpower Optimus - Final battle

DOTM (2011) - Optimus's silent-treatment/Megatron's base in desert/Optimus's and Sentinel's conversation/Ironhide VS the Dreads - the Standoff/Sentinels true colors/Goodbye/Optimus's "We will kill 'em all!"/Carly and Megatron/Sentinel disarmed by Megatron, Megatron killed by Optimus, Optimus finishes Sentinel/Bumblebee's "wedding" - Carly: "I love this car!"

* - The 'Running the wall and backflip' trick Megatron did while Optimus leaped over him and shot was so cool!(Imagine how it would have looked in 3D)

Transformers: toss up between Optimus' first scene driving down the alley to meet Sam with the music and the full on transformation and at the end when he bursts through the alley and into the streets while transforming

ROTF: When Optimus is given Jetfire's parts and says "Let's Roll"

DOTM: So many to choose from but I'd have to say when the Autobots show up in Chicago and Optimus walks up beside Sam, cocking his gun (the music makes this scene even better) followed by Optimus saying "In the name of freedom we'll bring the battle to them" or something to that effect. Get chills every time. :grin:

I really can't say dotm contained any one scene that made my neck hair stand straight out. There were scenes in the firstwo movies that did, but not in the 3rd. I will watch it when it comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray and figure it out then.

Weapon: Fusion Cannon
Transformers: Megatron killing Jazz. Because it was epic how he got killed and tossed away.

ROTF: Forest battle, specifically Primes death. Because the fight was epic, a real descent fight, deleted scene was cool where op gets attacked. and Optimus had epic death.

DOTM: (there are a few) Highway scene, because the dreads were awesome. Shockwave in Chicago. Close up at his face was awesome, shooting Optimus. Ironhides death, He had to be discharged from duty. decepticons are much better than autobots

So good!
