    Many of us liked the films. Many of us didn't. Many had no problems with them, while others did.

    So- how about a thread or forum- either a sub forum in MOVIE or RADICONS or somewhere- where critics can try to write their own film.

    At least Conceptron did- gotta respect her for that.

    So what say you?

    I say either way we all bask in the overwhelming awesomeness that is Sideswipe.

    Rotf plot twist

    I really liked the movie I just wish some things were different


    I loved the movie until prime died...

    (except take away sams mom getting high..that was annoying!)

    so besides him dying megs stabs him in the back but before he gets the finishing shot off ironhide comes and spears him...the other autbots fight off megs and starscream...ratchet goes to primes aid and realizes he needs energy so jolt actually has a purpose and uses his electric whips to keep him alive...basically a resperator...however rachet cant repair him completely so sam still needs to retrieve the matrix!!! after the autobots go back to base they have a 5 minute scene with all of them except bee skids & mudflap to develop charatcer and decide what they should do...

    leo leads sam & company to simmons but leo and simmons dont come becuz they did nothing but provide pointless humor...sam gets jetfire they go through space bridge and besides there being like a da vinci code quest jetfire leads them to the matrix...

    the final battle begins jetfire bee skids mudflap help sam getting to optimus...in the main battle we see more of the autbots fighting cons...sam revives prime....then the autubots begin to win but then megs orders the formation of devastator...this would have enabled there to be less confusion cuz the constructicons could have been fighting but they were losing so they formed him...there wasnt like devs and then more individual constructicons...after devs is formed he does a lot of damage then begins destroying the pyramid but the autobots (not a stupid rail gun) work as a team to bring him down...in the process jetfire is wounded then the fallen shows up he starts kicking ass but jetfire gives his spark to prime and prime kicks the fallens but....in the final scene all the autobots who lived are standing on the aircraft carrier with prime and sam to let us no who made it..


    this would have gave us less humans and humor and more characterization of robots and more of them fighting....it would have been so much better this way! IMO

    the thing is while I'd just love for people to just put up or shut up TFW and most of the internet is a forum based around personal views and as such you cant really censer one side of the fanbase even if they might be over acting.

    IMO if you dont read it you cant get mad at it.

    Movies aren't about "Put up or shut up." Are you only allowed to like it if it's a perfect movie? Are you only allowed to criticize something you can do yourself?

    If you can't play piano, does that mean you can't tell a virtuoso from a kid banging on the keys? By your logic, if you can't play piano yourself, you have no business listening to someone else do it.

    This thread is openly inflamatory. It's a discussion forum; it's supposed to be about opinions.

    YES!! Because that's EXACTLY what we need is another thread about why somebody did or didn't like the movie and why he/she/they can do better!

    seriously folks theres really is no such thing as a "perfect" movie, in all movies thereis always that little something more the director would have liked to do but couldn't for any of a multitude of reasons, in any given movie there is always something no matter how small and inconsequential, that at least 1 person will take issuse with and hate and rant about , we all need to agree to disagree and chill the f*ck out!
