    This is for all those who called every Michael Bay hater a "fanboy." Speaking as someone who dislikes Michael Bay (he's a pompous asshole IMO)...this reviewer is obvously biased and should have had someone else do thie review. Pretty funny stuff.

    It's CNN and it's not written by Lou Dobbs. Promptly ignores review.

    to quote a user from another thread in the forum...

    "CNNOOBs"

    There is nothing funnier on this entire planet than a giant alien robot taking a wizz on a government thug in his underwear.

    That was a VERY poor review. He's definately biased against Bay.

    Yeah, the review in the NY Times was about as favorable. Jerks.

    CNN can suck it dry.

    Fox News too, for that matter.

    all these news channels have been known to be pranked by Howard Stern, perhaps for a reason. Maybe we should find out what Howard Stern thinks about the TF film?

    I've seen plenty of movie's get trashed by critics only to turn around and make copious amounts of money.

    The box office numbers will be the decider, not the critics.

    Why would anyone give this movie a bad review??? I dont want to be pro-transformers biased but it's a GIANT summer actionn picture, effects are astounding, there isn't really anything you can hate or not like about this movie.

    I do think some of it could have been directed better but I think Bay went all out with this and made a more enjoyable film than any of his previous efforts. Does my bias to the TF property have anything to do with that opinion? Probably, but I'm sure a lot of people would agree

    Still, I hate utter negativity and I hate to see things like this, works of entertainment that really don't matter in the grand scheme of things, relentlessly bashed, no matter what it is

    I thought all reviewers hated movies that weren't dramas.

    Dramas, foreign films, indie flicks, that's where it's at for reviewers, anything mainstream that a lot of people can sit down and just be entertained by is shit to them

    Now, I recognize that Hollywood movies are largely formulaic and all, and there's lots of more prestigious, "serious" and critically acclaimed films I really love, but damn, don't hate something just because it's not anti-mainstream, not artsy and deep for the sake of being artsy and deep and what have you. Most of the reviews that just bash all the popcorn flicks do just that

    Let's be fair, opinions are going to vary, and if he doesn't like it, that's ok. So long as it doesn't turn into hateful ranting, it's fine.

    Oh, I know. and if someone watches the movie and hates it, thats fine.

    I dont think anyone should side with any reviews, positive or negative without seeing the movie themselves. thats why I asked. I hadnt seen his opinions of it posted in any topics, so... yeah.
