    Half that stuff can be figured out with common sense, which Rob constantly sacrifices in order to satisfy his nerdrage quota.

    I don't know who this "Rob" is, but after reading that, I want him dead.

    It's missing one important question:

    Q: How much time do I have on my hands?
    A: Far too much.

    Or he's trying to be satirical. There is certainly a lot of fair comment amongst the sneering anyway.

    Overreaction much?

    Yeah, it's a humor article. It's not meant to be taken seriously.

    Please, let's not be crazy.

    I just found the article funny, and figured I'd share it. Obviously people who actually liked the movie might not find it as funny, and that's fine, but don't give Rob Bricken death threats. Good lord.

    This is painfully unfunny.

    Rob sounds like a douche bag if you ask me.

    Also, this article was posted on June 26, 2009? The same week the movie came out. Did he even wait a couple weeks to write this, or did he feel the need to make the movie look like sh*t right away? I know this isn't supposed to be taken seriously but it's people like him that start a hate bandwagon for movies.

    Misinterpretation, yes?

    Nothing "crazy" was spoken, I don't want to kill him, I didn't threaten his life. Just him being "not-alive" may not be so bad.

    This isn't satire, it's just meanspiritedness.

    I read the first paragraph then stopped. I have my own views and I don't an telling me what his views are especially on the "racist Twins" who IMO, sound EXACTLY how a lot of gangsters or wannabe gangsters sound like. I'm a teen a am around A LOT of people and though slightly exaggerated, the Twins were quite realistic.

    Also yes, ROTF may not be fantastic; I walked away from the film excited by the action and when I recovered some months later and thought, I realised it wasn't that great.

    But what do you expect from a movie that had to figure out its plot and have a script written in 6 weeks?

    That was hilariously on the money. Razor sharp stuff.

    unlikely.

    I saw more bemusement and amusing confusement than nerdrage. If you want to see some rage, check out the comments left by some of the Bay-wunners. The only reason they get so butthurt is because almost all of it is true.

    Huh? You strike while the iron is hot. Why would he wait a few weeks for it to slip into irrelevance?

    G1 Skywarp thinks you're a colossal fuckwit who wouldn't know the words "research", "satire", "humour", or "funny" if they got together, walked up to you and collectively kicked you in your incredibly underused testicles. And I agree with him.

    Not really; simply a way to express my scorn for ill informed idiots in general, as opposed to true indignance at a minor inaccuracy in a veritable fucking SEA of them.
