    So, for you, how did TF3 rank vs other movies you've seen this year?

    First, I'm a Transfan from the start. Grew up with them, grew out of them, got back into them. I'm primed to like/love the movies. And I did love the first, liked the second.

    But I was let down big time by Dark of the Moon.

    So, for me, unfortunately, I liked every other movie I saw this year over TF3. And that includes Fast Five, Thor, Harry Potter, and Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    I have to admit DOTM dissappointed me too. i wanted to see wheeljack and bumblebee kick ass together like old times but i only saw an old man who can barely fight get killed and bumblebee say "goodbye old friend" HOW THE HELL are people supposed to know that they were best friends. i just wanted to see more robots and actually get to know their stories. but overall the story was great. i just thought that michael bay will properly fix his mistakes from the second movie and make it like the first but he didnt fix the fact that the Autobots were only minor characters. but that was the only thing that dissapointed me about the movie. i actually liked the movie anyways.

    in my opinion it was still a great movie and it entertained me more than any of the other movies that i watched this year.

    for me it was
    1.X-men first class
    2.DOTM
    3. Captain A
    4. HP7
    i thought Harry potter was gonna be at the top of my list but compared to the big bang the Transformers went out with in DOTM it felt like a crappy finale, specially cause i forgot most of the first part, also X-men is by far the best superhero movie since, the original spider-man and the incredibles

    While there were lots of big name big budget action films this summer to be honest I was mostly let down by the crop of summer films. It was kind of hard to get excited about a movie to rush off to the theaters.

    I enjoyed Harry Potter, but then I'm a book fan who has read all the books so short of something really screwed up it was a given I'd like seeing some of the things from the last book on the big screen.

    X-Men First Class impressed me with how well X-Men, some Bond flair, and the 60's stuff all worked so well together. Magneto gets my villain of the year award.

    Captain America impressed me with actually being able to pull it off. A fan of World War II stuff so that also helped in my enjoyment.

    Even though it was late in the summer I think my favorite summer film this year was Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    The rest of the summer films just felt like films I could have passed without missing out on anything important. Just didn't feel like I got my full money worth out of the other summer films I saw and even skipped some of the big films.

    Super 8 is my favorite movie this year, largely because it made me all nostalgic about certain Spielberg movies I grew up with.
    Rise of the Apes, Thor, Pirates 4, and Rango were also (unexpectedly) superb.
    Haven't gotten a chance to see Cap America, Cowboys VS Aliens, Potter, or X-Men because there are too damn many movies this year.

    DotM... had great visuals. No headaches from the 3D, which didn't appear "dim" and actually added to the movie, unlike too many other films of late.
    Of course, every one of the above had great visuals. Plus great story, acting, pacing...

    I think there was a cameo in X-Men First Class that summed up my feelings on the issue.

    Accept what? DOTM was a damn good movie, but it was not the best of the summer. That honour goes to HP 7 or to the movie I haven't seen yet, Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

    DOTM, Rango, ROTPOTA, and a few others that I forget right now were all great in there own right.

    I've also seen a lot of bad movies this year...
