    I know that this is extremely late. But, I just couldn't help myself. Read it for yourself:
    I agreed nearly 100% with everything that this guy said. To say that he hit the nail right on the head would be an understatement.

    The movi blog had the same exact opinion when the move came out, specially the first part which is an exact copy.

    But why should we care about ROTF reviews anymore?

    Good point. There was no need for the Fallen's character, really. With only a few script changes, Megatron could have learned about the machine through some other means and been the one to drive everything. I would have enjoyed that, actually. Didn't care to see Megs becoming a sidekick.

    Ohhh, this guy said the "PH" words. A lot of people around these parts don't like them words.

    Considering that the film has been out for weeks on home video, sure let's post a review!

    Well, while I still fail to see what's really so bad about the plot, at least the reviewer said it in a way that didn't just look like fanboy whining haha.

    I agree 100%. Very good ponts by this critic. He wasn't a dick about the movie, nor did he praise it for everything it's worth. The movie was entertaining, yet had multiple flaws, but I wouldn't saw it was bad in the least.

    Even the greatest movie on Earth thinks it's an honest review.

    Hitting the nail on the head would be an understatement

    My sentiments exactly.

    I absolutley hate it when critics say "you're an idiot with no taste if you like this movie" or something along that line. I would love to see if they had the kahonas to say it to someone's face.

    Exactly. Roger Ebert acted like a pompous ass when he replied to me because like a GEEWUNNER he apparently doesn't like the robots.

    Then again, thats Roger Ebert. Can't blame him for being who he is. Meh.

    Wait, Ebert gave a personal reply to you? Or do you mean that blog post he made a while back?
