Bumblebee is the movie you get when you combine the badassery of a robot movie with the nostalgic feels of an 80s flick. This movie is a total reboot on the original Transformers franchise.
Unlike the other movies from the franchise, this one is not directed by Michael Bay but by Travis Knight. So, it doesn’t solely revolve around the robot clashes. It is a multidimensional movie with a likeable storyline, relatable emotions, nostalgic 80s music and of course, just the right amount of live robot action.

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 1, nuff said! Bumblebee has an amazing mix of 80s tracks including Bon Jovi’s “Runaway”, The Smith’s “Bigmouth Strikes Again” and many more.

If you loved the 80’s theme of the movies
The 80s are back in many ways. Right from fashion, to music and movies, everyone’s emulating this epic decade. Bumblebee is one among these new movies and TV shows. The 2017 movie “It” based on the Stephen King novel of the same name is set in the 80s too. It has the same classic vibe, but it’s not quite the same genre. Embrace yourself for some 80s-themed horror with this movie.

If you love robot movies
