    This needs to be front paged. Its just another thing to slap in James cameron's face with his blue kitty people.

    At last, James Cameron's Giant Smurfs will be no more!

    I didn't see Avatar mentioned in the article. Was it the previous record holder? Honestly, if DOTM is even half the film Avatar was, Bay will have surpassed everything he's ever done.

    I think he already did, seriously, both Transformers movies were less predictable than Avatar, probably the most predictable movie I ever saw in my whole life.

    Yeah, I'd be hard pressed to find any Bay movie that wasn't better than Avatar, and I'm not all that high on the Transformers movies thus far.

    To all the people who were worried about the promotion of DOTM: I think it's safe to say it's gonna be OK.

    I know people who have never seen the first 2 movies talking about this movie.Alot of guys I work with thought that TF's were dumb and are now taking an interest in the franchise.

    well that's going by your personal preference, so you're not wrong there. I'm sure there are those here that will agree with you, you're certainly not alone, but go by IMDb, Rotten Tomatoes, global box office, any available measure, the story will be different, and it'll be pretty one-sided. I guess it's a conspiracy.

    TF1 was reasonably predictable... Autobots won, Sam got the girl. But I'll agree that ROTF was much less so. It's easy to be unpredictable when your story's a heap of nonsense.

    Stupid question, Who is it up to whether this info goes on the front page and I get a news credit? One of the mods? I posted this on the Michael bay forum and they front paged it right away

    I never said that it WASN'T predictable, I said that it was LESS predictable compared to Avatar.

    Being more precise:

    Transformers 1, at the beginning of the movie: Optimus will win, 'Cons will lose.

    Transformers 1, at the end of the movie: Predictabl-- WAITAMINUTE, did they just killed Jazz?

    Transformers 2, beginning of the movie: 'Bots win, 'Cons fall, rock on.

    Transformers 2, end of the movie: As usu-- wait, JETFIRE? NOOO!

    Avatar, within the first five minutes: Quaritch is the main villain, Jake will become a giant smurf and stay with them, humans will get their ass kicked by the severly less avanced cilization, hippie message and whataver the hell else.

    Avatar, at the end of the movie: Oh look, I think I was unable to predict what, two frames of movie?
