    Does anybody else find the articles he posts about transformers annoying? He knows nothing about the movie and he criticizes it so much. His lack of knowledge and ignorance for the series is making other people on that site think bad about the film.

    I've never been to the site, but the two most recent TF articles are the ones about the new clip (wherein he criticizes some wooden acting). Which is justifiable, considering that it isn't exactly great. And the Best/Worst Crossovers list, which after reading seemed pretty spot on.

    So, based on that sample set, I find him much less annoying than people who start threads to complain about perceived slights from a geek blog.

    Well I'm not just talking about the most recent ones. Or the articles about the toyline. At all.

    I usually find them pretty funny and insightful.

    ^Funny? Occassionally. Insightful? Not in the least. All Rob does on TR regarding the movies is pure mindless bile without an ounce of logic.

    Well, its a bit much to expect them to have the same level of familiarity as we do, as topless robot is a more general-interest blog.

    Fair point but he shouldn't talk as if he knows what he's talking about when he clearly doesn't

    He also seems to like hammering in the fact that "The movies suck" and "Michael Bay sucks".

    If something is even SLIGHTLY movie-related, the article will always have about one or two sentences stating his thoughts. I get that not everyone likes the movie stuff, but when you have to remind everyone in just about every article it stops being funny and starts getting hacky and annoying.

    Sometimes hate is so overwhelming it is self sustaining.

    He saw the first two movies. I don't know what else you expect from a casual fan.


    And just because someone didn't like the movies doesn't mean they don't know anything about them. This thread reeks of butthurt.

    Speaking of which, I'd like a refund. I came into this thread expecting to see a topless robot, but didn't even come across a nipple related Wreckgar joke.

    The only thing I have against Topless Robot is how that place is just one enormous circle-jerk. The amount of toadying sickens me.
