I think the record will show that I'm a pretty big fan of Hasbro's cartoons from the '80s, and one of the things I love most about them is how great the soundtracks are. Not just the theme songs, but the incidental music that provides the background for Jem and the Holograms, or that smooth jazz version of the GI Joe theme that plays under the closing credits. Heck, even in the years before More Than Meets The Eye came along and made me stop hating the Transformers, I still had to admit that the music was pretty great. The only problem is that I can't listen to it whenever I want, but now, it looks like that problem might be coming to an end. Composer Robert J. Walsh has confirmed that he's remastering the soundtracks for the Hasbro shows, with plans for Sony to release high-end versions that will include new footage and artwork, too.

10. That’s the number of years we have left in the Transformers franchise…for now. This year, Paramount and writer / producer Akiva Goldsman recruited a brain trust of writers to formulate plans for Transformers sequels, as well as potential spinoffs and animated projects. Their work yielded plans for Transformers 5, as well as an animated origin story prequel. But how many more films are in the works? Rumor has it they have plans for at least five.

If you’ve been putting off watching The Hunger Games, World War Z or the Rocky movies on Netflix, now would be the time to take advantage of them as the company’s deal with Epix is coming to an end. Netflix has opted out of renewing their contract with the premium cable service, just as they previously did with Starz. As a result, several major films will disappear from Netflix in September.
