    A very telling quote:
    "As far as we can tell from the trailer, the robots don't actually talk and are only marginally the “stars” here"

    So they've seen one trailer, and therefore the movie sucks.

    Gotta love reviewers.

    Man, they needed to see the trailer to know the movie would suck? All I needed to see was the poster. I mean, come on! A giant eye over the Earth? What does that have to do with Transformers? This isn't The Giant Eye movie! There was no giant eye above Earth in the cartoon! Man, they totally missed the point! :mad 








    :p

    Boy, I must have been drunker than I thought on the evening of June 28th. I could have sworn the Transformers on both sides talked. I guess I should lay off the beer before going to see a movie.

    Were was SM3?

    God this guy needs to die. He wrote a review on a movie he never watched. That's like me saying the new sandwich on McDonalds is gross even though I haven't even tried it.

    The fact that the article has, as of this writing, a rating of 3.07 out of 5 bothers me almost as much as the ignorance of the article's writer.

    Blind hate needs no logic to justify it's use - That's why it's such an easy weapon to wield: Anyone can use it regardless of their lack of skill or sophistication.

    Cracked just isn't funny. Every time I follow a link there is just sounds like snarky, self righteous snobs who hate everything. Which would be fine if they made funny or astute satire or criticism, but more often than not they're more cringe inducing than the stuff they're attempting to make fun of.

    What a jagoff. On the other hand, its pretty cool that the reality of things is proving just how much of a jagoff he is.

    Oh no...some random faceless person who wrote a list has insulted the movie...what a shock:rolleyes2 


    "only marginally the “stars” here, in much the same way the dinosaurs were the “stars” of Jurassic Park."

    "director Michael Bay thought we'd prefer watching the fat guy from Kangaroo Jack and Aaron from 24 running around in front of the robots saying “Holy shit!” and “Look out, everyone! Robots!” Essentially, you're being invited to watch other people watching the Transformers."

    Those two quotes are spot on, but I'd never include Transformers on that list, the rest yeah. I love the comment for Die hard

    “Hi! I'm an aging action star with no real grasp on the basis of his fans' love for his own franchise!”



    “And I'm a Mac!”

    Can't speak for every one, but my problem is more that hes reviewing movies he hasn't even seen.

    IMO the movie was pretty good. You can't please everyone and that is where this guy comes in.

    He isn't reviewing movies, but predicting which movies probably won't be that great. He is suppose to say something negative about ALL of them. Its not like he singled out Transformers since there are six other movies on that list.
