    Awesome. I hope it blows the other blockbusters out of the water. They certainly deserve it.

    Go Autobots! Serious, I think TFs can beat Pirates 3 which was disappointing in my books...and I believe the reason why it got such a big opening is because of the cliff-hanger in Pirates 2 and was the final episode of a trilogy.

    That makes the sequel a certainty then. Looks like they achieved their aim of booting a new 3 part franchise. It's always the comic book movies isn't it? No bad thing I guess, but what about a Thundercats movie next? You'd get nostalgia, action and furry fans in one hit ^^

    Bring on Transformers 2!

    I watched the movie again last night with all of my friends and there was a lot of applause at the end of the movie. You know people enjoyed the movie when they clap at the end. That doesn't happen very often. :thumb

    $30M on a Tuesday doesn't impress you? Jeebus, you've got high standards.

    A week? If my memory serves me right, that's still pretty poor compared to POC3, SM3, etc.. I really doubt they'll make a profit out of this movie.. (especially hearing how so many people see all these 'flaws' in the movie and think it was nothing special.)

    But here's hoping..
    (saw it today and loved it. Absolutely perfect.)
