It seems that even though Transformers Revenge of the Fallen may have issues even us hardcore TF fans can't ignore, that the main stream media and critics seem to be blasting it a bit harder than usual. Not sure what's up with that. So lets use this thread to voice your opinion on what you think about all the hatin ass critics out there. Do your best to keep it constructive and reasonable. Try to do point counter point. If you speak about a particular review, reference it with a link. Humor is welcome. Just make the post interesting and let folks know why you as a Transformer fan think their analysis was bullshit. The best post within the next week will win a $50 USD Gift Certificate to StylinOnline.com! Stylin Online is sponsoring a series of contests here on TFW2005, running 1 per week until July 8th (4 total). Each week, Stylin Online will be giving away a gift certificate valued at 50 USD. Each Wednesday (or Thursday when we are slow asses) we will announce the previous week's winner, and reveal the next contest. All you need to do is be registered at TFW2005 and logged in to participate. 2005 Staff are not eligible. Get to talkin! UPDATE: DISASTER RECOVERY... OK, I guess either I didnt make myself clear, people didn't read the board rules, or we are all assholes. So let me clarify what the point of this thread was SUPPOSED to be before it devolved. It was meant for the folks that DID like the movie, who DISAGREED with what was perceived as the overly harsh mainstream critic response to the movie. This is not to say that the critics were wrong. Or that folks who DONT like the movie are wrong. Or that TFW2005 supports ROTF as Gone With the Wind level cinema worthy of a sweep at the Oscars. The folks that do agree with the critics, and don't like the movie, there are other threads on this forum that you can respond to, and are free to do so. That's just not the point of this particular thread. During the early part of opening week, I felt there was an stronger than normal negativity floating around the movie by PROFESSIONALS, and wanted us, the fans, to respond. In a constructive, FUN manner. So, I will give this one more shot. Ive deleted several hundred posts from this thread, leaving less than 25. Let's try to stay on target. New Rules You must quote a professional critic's original story. You must reference 2 points in their story and explain why you feel they are wrong. You may not comment on anyone's posts from this thread or forum inside this thread. You may not respond to anyone who posts a review here. This thread is not for back and forth fan commentary on the movie or movie industry. It is meant to speak about particular critics and why you think they are wrong. If you think they are right, stay out of this thread. You may not call anyone anywhere a name. It must be more than 3 sentences. I apologize to everyone for not staying up on the management of this thread, I've been busy and didn't think a festering swamp of puss was brewing in here like it was.
