    I love that io9 review.

    "Oh, and I would warn you that there'll be spoilers in this review — except that, really, since I still have no idea what actually happened in this movie, I'm not sure how much I can spoil it."

    lol, how is Sam being portrayed as a loser? What part was the pointy Fox nipples? I hate stupid exaggerations thrown in to "enhance" reviews, so I stopped reading at this point.

    It's very obvious when people are reviewing the movie and don't give a crap about it in the first place. Such as MSNBC.com's guy, who listed John Turturro as playing Jetfire.

    Did you guys get born without the part of the brain that process the concept of satire?

    It was actually Mark Ryan. Not Turturro.

    I honestly don't understand how you could find the plot, or should I say, "twenty plots" in this movie confusing. They all tie together somehow, and this movie review only makes it sound like a random, all over the place movie because he's making fun of it.

    I understood the plot, I enjoyed the movie, and I did it all while acknowledging its faults. What more can you ask of me?

    then all the casts list on the internet are wrong and you cant blame the review writer for using them

    Sure.

    I don't consider making shit up to be satirical. Anyone can do that.

    Well, I knew it was Mark Ryan before I saw the movie, and I'm not a professional movie critic. So, actually I can and will blame him for a poor effort.

    I realize there's no prerequisite to posting on the internet, opinions and shades of truth abound and there is no right way or wrong way to have a common discourse, but if you are going to argue definitions, then please look the word up and stop looking like...

    Well, skids and mudflap can't read, so maybe you're just emulating them.

    Carry on.

    The only one who seems to be arguing definitions is you. If you have a point to make, make it like what was asked of you. Don't post links and assume everyone knows what you have some sort of issue with.
