    I remember when it was speculated that the movie wasn't going to make it to the top 5 because of Spider-man 3, Harry Potter 5, POTC 3, The Simpsons and Shrek 3.

    Wow, highest non-sequel of the year by far as well, 300 didn't come close.

    That is because 300 was an awful movie. I am very pleased Transformers did so well.

    I saw a list like that last night, but the line-up was slightly different. TF was top ten though IIRC.

    Will be interesting to see how it ranks in other lists as well :lol

    It's funny that one of the worst movies of the year is number one money wise.

    funnier is that the top 3 movies were among the crappiest stories ever written.

    SM3: Sandman shoulda never been in it. Giving him a "story" just destroyed the character. Emo Parker sucked too. Best part was Harry vs Peter.

    Shrek 3: Must we stretch angry ogre and stinky donkey jokes over 3 movies?

    Transformers: Eye candy. Acting: bleh. story: meh. editing/camera angles: BARF!

    Makes you wonder if the writer's strike will honestly affect movie production.

    I can't think of a single movie this year that I left the theater thinking "Wow, that was a solid movie! It's a must-see!" Seriously... hopefully next year will be better. If Dark Knight is 1/2 as good as Batman Begins, we're in for at least one well made blockbuster film.

    With all the negative whining I kept hearing about Spider-Man, I thought TF would top it on that list.

    So, when is the movie going to fail and destroy Transformers forever?

    Have I been lied to?

    well I'm glad it did so well to warrant the sequels. Potter & 300 were also highlights of the year on my list.

    Potter was a disappointment for me for the same reasons that Spider-Man 3 was: too much info in too short of time. A 700+ page novel squeezed into 2.5 hrs never turns out well. Luna Lovegood was exceptional, however. I also wasn't impressed with some of the changes that were changed for the heck of it, rather than changed for story reasons.



    300 was just a string of M rated video game cutscenes taped together... there was nothing about the movie that honestly earned the hype. I'd rather play "God of War".
