    I didn't hate DOTM but comic book writer Gail Simone (Secret Six, Birds of Prey, Wonder Woman) did a hilarious commentary as she watched the movie. These are my personal highlights from her Twitter

    My jaw dropped when she insulted Leonard Nimoy's voice acting :mad . Can't she learn any of the TFs names at all??

    Why is Gail Simone, of all people, trolling Transformers? She obviously has no interest in them, and I'm sure she has better things to be doing.

    Pay no attention to these people trying to get cheap laughs off of our thing and maybe, just maybe, they'll go away.

    Shouldn't she have her phone off during the film?

    I'm a fan... not a fanboy... while I liked the films, I do not think they are above criticism.
    That said, based upon her Tweets:

    She's an idiot. I'm surprised that her brain can generate enough electricity to know how to operate a phone and Tweet... let alone breath.

    Who? That name is familiar.


    Same. Maybe if everyone and their brother wasn't a snide smartass.

    Comic book writer. Is writing Batgirl and Firestorm right now, best known for Secret Six, which is FANTASTIC. Also wrote the "Birds of Prey" Episode of Brave and the bold.


    Shes right about the movie.

    Guys, it's... not a good movie. Most of her criticisms are valid. And funny.

    And in fact I think I'd rather read her commentary on the movie than be forced to watch it again.

    Wrong. It is, and very few if none are. Nothing she's said there is new or hasn't been said before.

    I knew I recognised that name. The comic book reviewer Linkara swoons over her in like every other review

    She isn't.

    You think with so many hoping on the bandwagon they'd be able to come up with something new.

    She uses alot of hyperbole but shes trying to be funny on twitter, not be a serious movie critic.

    If these would have been jokes about a movie like Twilight or a shitty Romantic comedy like she normally does no one here would be offended.

    Someone made fun of our Robot movie. Deal with it.

    Good post, hupla! I started out all offended and WTF, but you're right- she was being funny, and yes, some of her criticisms are spot-on, if amplified.

    Funny is funny.

    I feel bad youre only exposure is through Lewis. He talks her up way to much, her current books range from Good (firestorm) and very sub par (batgirl). Shes a funny and smart woman but I dont think she will ever top Secret Six.

    Seriously though is the movie forum so starved for topics that anytime someone mentions the movie in a negative light we gotta talk about it? Lets just let it be.

    That wasn't even a bit funny, it was all stupid and pointless.

    First and second mistakes. Nobody should "try" to be funny. You're either funny or you're not, "trying" only comes of as such.

    Also lol twitter.

    Although funny you mention, her presentation and critiques are, ironically, better then most "serious" movie critics. Not saying much but still.
