Seibertron.com member, Nick Kubasak, has brought to our attention that IFC.com is highlighting movies with notable swearing. Ironically, The Transformers: The Movie(1986) made the list!

IFC.com had this to say:
If the creators of "The Transformers: The Movie" set out to traumatize a generation of children, mission accomplished. The old "Transformers" cartoon show is remembered as a genial half-hour toy commercial where good robots that turned into cars fought bad robots that turned into guns or planes or boom boxes (it was the 80s) in a series of low stakes laser battles.

"The Transformers: The Movie," on the other hand, showcased the brutal deaths of half its cast, including beloved Autobot Optimus Prime, who was savagely cut down in the film's first reel to make way for a new generation of heroes (i.e. toys). The addition of (to be fair, minimal) cursing to the robots' vocabulary was just the shit icing on the urinal cake; all that was missing was a weird robot-on-robot sex scene. There's no way Michael Bay's upcoming live action version could ever be half as dark, disturbing, and adult than this crazy little cartoon.
