Transformers - Revenge of the Fallen

How We Determine Our Grades

After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.

Transformers were introduced in the mid-1980s. Most of the children who played with them would now be in their mid-twenties to early-thirties. How does this movie try and capture that audience, while attempting to generate interest in the toys for young potential purchasers?

What are your feelings about using a toy aimed at young children in an adult context? Do marketers have a moral obligation to ensure products associated with young children’s toys are presented in a manner suitable for that age group?
