    pretty cool interview.

    I don't understand how the chud guy could say it was so boring, and go on and on about how boring it was. This guy must eat grenades and shit dynamite if he thinks it was a boring movie. I mean how exciting must your life be to find this movie boring?

    Just weird.

    Devin Faraci doesn't even give any in depth reasons why the movie was bad other than "Michael Bay sucks", "This movie is crap" and "I don't understand why people would settle for this movie". Just weak.

    The guy defending the film, wasn't very good at it. I was expecting him to get abused by the other guy, he looked so timid the whole time with his hair slick back lol and the other guy looked like chewbacca.

    Kinda ironic that the guy who hated it was wearing a Star Trek Shirt, the guy who was saying he liked the film should have at least commented about that

    Saw it this morning !! BOY, did I hated the Star Trek Fat-Ass, nor did I liked the "yes it was good a guy movie"(didn't do a good job defending the movie) !! I'm glad in the end of the interview he couldn't understand why the movie did great when he thought it was bad !!

    PEOPLE DON'T CARE ABOUT NEGATIVE OR POSITIVE REVIEWS OF SO CALLED FILM CRITIC EXPERT, CHUBBY!!! They care only in their opinions and of their on friends (whether they liked it or not)

    Movie goers pour the money to see it!! For the studio, that what it counts, not film critic experts !! Been like that, will always be like that!!

    Bet the trekie ate his laptop when he learned the movie goers liked the film !! Like the rest :lol  Must be annoying for 'em when they put all their "hard work" on their stupid opinions when the public thinks the opposite of them :D  They say "NAY", We "YAY" or They "YAY", we "NAY" :lol  It's been always like that, correct me if I'm wrong.

    I agree the middle part was boring. The beginning of this film didnt give me that chill that Blackout did when he first transformed in TF1.

    Bay did get better at filming, but yes we still want to be able to follow which robots are fighting. . . its always so close up when robots are fighting. Back the camera up and let us see the WHOLE picture!

    Actually getting sick of Kevin's contant ROTF-bashing. There are some valid points but this movie wasn't ever meant to be deep or though provoking or emotional like "The Dark Knight." It was a good mindless movie with giant robo-battles.

    I once said : Movie critics are like 91% retarded (a minority really are good critics, sadly) and a 99% of movie goers real critics (there's always that 1% of real a-holes that don't know WTF are they talking about !!)

    Dark Knight wasn't thought provoking. It reminded me of Death Note with Batsuits :p 

    Still effing amazing, but the moral ambiguity and plot isn't new to anyone.

    No. I can see where he's coming from. A movie like Cube is more entertaining and engaging than ROTF.

    The thing that gets me is, and they alluded to it in yesterdays show, is that they go on and on and on about how bad it was (kevin and olivia), and they only stayed for the first 30 minutes of the friggin movie. IMO, STFU!!!, until you've seen it all. Then pass judgement.

    Crap all over the TDK statement, I will. Ppl only cared for TDK because of Joker, I mean really.

    If ya ask me, these stupid critics just don't know the source material. Take Watchmen for example. They said it was a soft porn, too violent, too long and boring. These morons walked in basically expecting a action-packed super-hero movie more or less. Same thing with TF, they don't touch base on the relationship of humans and robots in the comics or cartoons that much. They may for 2% of the issue or episode but the other 98% is all abotu smash, shoot clobber robots.

    But what about the fans who did know the source material? I knew the source material for Watchmen before watching it, and was disappointed - not as sorely as most critics, but I was disappointed as a fan. Same goes for ROTF, especially since I liked TF1, because I know Bay can deliver a more intelligent and intelligible movie.

    I don't know it seemed pretty boring in a lot of parts to me.

    They blow up stuff all the time on the Discovery Channel so unless you are going to blow up something pretty interesting then explosions are now just been there done that have the tee shirt in my closet somewhere.

    The plot was so insane that you knew there was no chance in heck of the bad guys ever pulling it off so there goes tension out the window. Plus after the total beat down of the two Decepticons in China you pretty much knew the film was going to be as one sided as Andre the Giant vs Pee Wee Herman in a wrestling match.

    Some interesting parts like Prime out of the back of the plane or the forest fight but a lot of boring things I just didn't care about between those moments of things are sort of interesting right now.

    There were moments that were well acted, well written, and/or well executed imo.

    -Same and Mikaela mingling outside Sam's house right before he's driven to college.
    -Optimus parachuting onto the overpass.
    -The spirits of the 6 Primes talking to Sam.
    -Mikaela screaming for Sam when he died.
    -and.. umm.... can't remember anything else that I actually enjoyed (rather than sat through/tolerated)

    see for me I did get a chill when I saw Prime freefall out of the plane, land and transform, roll, transform again. Just the fall then 2 quick tf's was so cool
