    Watching it my 4th time. I found one of my fav. parts, SOOOOO funny. It's when the kid is running to take pics of the Auto bot crash landing, and he screams out, this is "100 times better then Armageddon!!!!" which is another Mike Bay film, and also....SO SO true, hence funny because it is true.....

    I don't blame ya, you were probably too entranced with the arrival of the Autobots and the kickass orchestral score to hear what some fat kid had to say. :)

    Yea, not quite sure how you missed that. It was pretty clear... and I loved that entire scene of their arrival!

    The first time I watched it, I didn't even notice the score. I was almost suprised the second time around realizing just how much emotional impact it added.

    The score in that scene is incredible. I would pay real good money to get the score for the entire movie on CD. There are some really, REALLY good themes in there at various parts.

    Still, I laughed the first time at that kid saying it's a 100 times cooler than Armageddon. It was hilarious.

    That's coz it isn't a movie. It's a sloppy, choppy toy and car commercial. The last 30 minutes with Megatron is the closest it comes to being about Transformers. The two hour filler before was just tacked on as an afterthought.

    Actually the line was improved by one of the kids while filming. Bay thought it was so funny he asked the kid to do it again. :) 

    Can't remember where I read or saw this but I thought it was pretty cool.

    I like how Bay accepts the universal critical disapproval for his style of movie making and makes fun of him self for it. I guess he just enjoys doing what he does. And the money.

    Sorry to skew a bit off topic. But I never knew of Bay or his style being disliked until this movie was being made. I thought it was funny that I really like most of his movies. They're always a lot of fun (except Pearl Harbor). I guess my taste in movies sucks huh?

    Critics have an issue with it. The general public eats it up. Critics are soulless heartless creatures who suck the fun out of anything.

    Critics like to believe that any movie worth watching needs to be some deeply philosophical paradigm shifting, mind-blowing, hugely budgeted deep-thought experiment. Any movie that's just fun to watch without being preachy is a piece of crap in their eyes.

    I've enjoyed most of Bay's movies too. So long as you don't let his underlying theme of attempted intelligence eat at you like some people seem to, they're a lot of fun to watch.

    To me, yes most of his movies suck, There are a few, like the Rock, Bad Boys 1, cant think of anything else off the top of my head.
    I think he continues to do things his way, A. because that is HIS way,
    B. the more people talk the more buzz it gets. Hey in showbiz bad buzz is better then no buzz.

    i think it's cuz a lot of his movies are done the same way. but i really dont care. transforming robots, explosions, and hot girls, that's all i need. and the story wasnt even all that bad. it's a heck of a lot better than the cartoons.
