    TFTM = 4 out of 5 stars
    ROTF = 2-1/2 out of 5 Stars
    DOTM = 4 out fo 5 starts

    I enjoyed them all but ROTF was more of a visual experiance for me then a story being told. The other 2 had a back bone with story and great visuals.

    Transformers 2.5/4

    Revenge of the Fallen 0.5/4

    Dark of the Moon 1.5/4

    When the TF movies actually focus on the Transformers I think they are brilliant, but the human parts are some of the most annoying, insulting things I have ever scene.

    To the people giving good reviews to ROTF, ask yourself this question. We all enjoyed the Shanghai opening, the megatron and starscream banter, the forest battle and the robo vs robo action like Bee vs rampage. But these parts make up about 20% of the movie. Racial stereotypes, Shia's mom getting "high", humping dogs, Simmon's ass, ATROCIOUS HUMOR and a 40 minute long final battle that was nothing but soliders giving orders, sand and no name protoforms getting shreaded like paper. Even though ROTF had it's moments, it was the biggest 200 million fart I have ever seen a director throw at an audience looking to enjoy a summer movie.

    ROTF: 0 out of 10

    DOTM: 5/10

    Also not every reviewer uses stars so calm the hell down about that. I refuse to use stars and instead rate with clocks, why clocks? because you need to learn to accept that people aren't going to do exactly what you want all the time.

    Any critique that simply uses a numbered or numerical scale is pointless and waters down the effect of cinematic analysis to the point of near-uselessness.

    A critique should look at a film and say exactly where it's strengths and weaknesses lie, citing examples and giving insight, and being as objective as possible, if that critique is to carry any weight or be of any real use to the audience.

    I agree with this.

    Worse case scenario. Use a conversion chart. To convert the scale to stars. Or convert the grade to stars.

    I agree, I've never been a fan of the star rating or number rating on anything. Plus it seems to be the sort of system that gets people the most bent out of shape when some game only gets 4 stars instead of 5.

    Transformers: Full of potential but falls short of greatness. All the fun of getting to see complex transformations on the big screen, but some shots really suffer from it being too dark, too much dust in the air, shakey cam, or being too close to see the bigger picture. Side trips to nowhere like the computer experts sub-plot but the film rolls along nicely for it's length.

    Revenge of the Fallen: A film that should be avoided by everyone except for the most hardened Micheal Bay fan. The plot seems to have been written in crayon on back of a napkin while driving down the freeway on the way to shoot the movie. The leaps of logic are too great for anyone with a basic concept of geography. Overkill with the back from the dead card. Nothing really to the combiner they pushed so hard in the trailers. Provided you don't fall asleep during the super long desert fight the film decides there are other things to do and Prime goes Superman by wearing a dead robot to wrap the film up quickly.

    Dark of the Moon: Perhaps the best attempt yet to tell a story within the franchise but not exactly more than just a passable story. Sam has gone from the teen you could relate to in the first film to a young adult who seems to do nothing but whine and complain about not having the perfect life even if he does have a girlfriend who is way too good a catch for a man like him. No real tension to the film because somehow the bad guys have gotten even weaker, it's to the point where Sam is a robot killer even without the magical McGuffin. Visually the cleanest shots we've gotten out of the entire series so worth watching for the visuals if nothing else.

    Revenge of the Fallen: Very fun movie with a plot equivalent to the first that was ignored because robot scrotum.

    TF1 8/10

    TF2 9/10 (Yes, I said that. Plus I figured out the plot hole solutions without any headcanon whatsoever, so any bashing for that reason is screwed over forever.)

    TF3 10/10.
