Optimus Prime versus Megatron

Counting down the hours to Transformers: The Revenge of the Fallen has me watching this, dare I say AMAZING, scene from the cartoon movie that was released in the ’80s. With references to Shakespeare and set to Stan Bush’s power ballad “The Touch,” this battle between Optimus Prime and Megatron brought a movie theatre, if not an entire generation, to tears when both towering figures died after the battle. One of the few tributes Michael Bay, director of the live-action franchise I pray is revitalized on Wednesday, is the famous line from the scene: One shall stand. One shall fall. For your true viewing pleasure:
