    and there is no way it should be a 97% on Rotten tomatoes, NO FRIGGIN WAY, I saw it in 3D, the 3D was lame, the only thing you saw in 3D was some ash that was floating in the air, the film was dull, long boring moments towards the end, no action, no emotion with the famous dumbledore heaven/limbo scene, did not show any fighting away from Harry, The final scene was so lame, it should be up for a razzie. Seriously, how is this film getting so many positive reviews? If Michael Bay directed it you know it would be below 50% on RT. I'm not just saying this because I'm a transformers fan, I've liked the prior Harry Potter Movies, but this one was lame and I honestly believe DOTM was way better. Any one else agree?

    When I watch, I will comment.

    But beforehand I'll say: I doubt, I SERIOUSLY DOUBT that I'll find Mary Sue Potter 8 better than DOTM, I seriously doubt.

    Whatever, I'll give you three seconds before a Potter-Transformer Flame War begin, three...

    I greatly dislike the entire franchise, it'll get none of my cash. Just not my thing, so boohoo.

    Also, f*ck RT, Bad Teacher has a higher percentage than Cars 2?!

    Can't you just accept the fact that the Harry Potter films are critical successes because they are WELL-MADE films? Why is it that part of being a die-hard supporter of the live action TF films means that you have to act like any other series that is popular is a threat to your existence?

    The Potter films all reviewed well, because they're good movies. They're not like Twilight, for crying out loud. Critics hate those, because they're terrible.

    Which doesn't give anyone the right to say Bayformers are not well-made.

    On this case, he has a point on them being enemies, is only natural we discuss.
    Yes, he's overreacting and bashing with no reason, but the core of the idea is right ["Harry VS TF"].

    Your Mileage May Vay with them being good movies.

    haha. I knew something like this thread would come up.

    I saw it too. I really enjoyed it. I thought it ended the series very well.

    I like DOTM a little more because I'm a transformers fan but I do beleive that The Deathly Hallows was a better film. I don't feel like anyone has to be so defensive. Both films will gain so much money. Its likely that Potter will win out in the end but I don't think we should make things into Potter vs. DOTM. Can't we just appreciate both films for what they are? I loved both!

    Trukk not Potter

    I was a HUGE potter fan when I was a kid but... now it has grown old and tired. I'm sure the film is great, I just have no interest in seeing it. And obviously critics are going to love it over DOTM, because...it probably is a good movie but! There's no highway chase scene with predator transformers in harry potter is there?

    I think I made my point. :lol

    You have to be a pretty, awful, shallow person to think that the fanbase of one movie is AT WAR with the fanbase of another. It is the RIGHT of a critic to criticize movies. Don't be so goddamn butthurt just because YOUR favorite movie is hated on and the one you hate people like. It's beyond childish. It isn't even a legitimate discussion. I'm a Transformers fan and I would've loved to see DOTM do well in the critic's eyes. But I'm not going to treat it as a war. I think the Harry Potter stuff is quite a success, and it's definitely earned it's place in history, book and film wise.

    Want legitimate discussion? Howabout start by asking why Harry Potter seems to be a success and what Bay could've done to achieve a success on par with Harry Potter. THAT is legitimate discussion. Not this bullshit about one fandom at war with another.

    I see. We had the annual Roger Ebert vs. Transformers, now its time for Harry Potter vs. Transformers.

    Whatever.

    Also, when will you people learn that a 97% 'rating' on Rottentomatoes does NOT mean the movie is worth a 9.7 out of 10. It just means that 97% of the reviewers liked the movie.
