I've been reading through tons of threads from TF fans bitching and moaning about this, that and everything in between and it's becoming mind numbing! Now obviously i could just stop reading these negative posting and move along with my life, but i did want to say my piece before doing so, since everyone and their grandmothers have already spoken on the subject. First things first. You guys do realize that we got pretty much everything we asked for right? Bay and company actually listened to our bitching and moaning from the first installment and tried to add as much of our requests as he could, did he not? Now before you answer that I want to put this whole negative vibe ROTF movie thing into a different perspective, shall we. You can tell a 5 year old to do chores around the house like; mow the grass, clean and organize the basement or even paint your car. You tell the 5 year old, here is a list of things I need done. Once these are finished, ill give you some money. You can be assured that this 5 year old will indeed do most of what’s on that list. He may not understand every single thing on that list, but he will do them to the best of his ability. 9 out of 10 times the completed list will be even more of a mess once he’s finished then it did before the 5 year old began, but what did you expect? You surely couldn't have expected it to be spotless and perfect did you? I mean, the child IS only 5. Guess what else? You still have to pay that 5 year old for the work that’s been done. They did the best they could and you knew exactly what you were getting. This franchise wasn’t handed to Martin Scorsese or James Cameron. It was handed to Michael Bay for Christ sakes! WTF did everyone with such high expectations expect!? If anyone should be blamed for disliking the movie they should blame themselves for thinking it was going to be something it obviously could never be. I’ve honestly got my gripes like most of us do, and I'm not ashamed to say I was one of those people that for a moments time did expect something better. Especially with all the build up and hype over the past 2 years. I DEFINITLY expected some form of actual professional editing, pacing and continuity. Of course I look back now and realize that I expected it from a virtual 5 year old given a list of things to accomplish. He finished his list and he’s getting his money. I just wish the studios could have paid him in gold stars. With all that being said, I actually liked the movie! Of course it’s NOTHING like what we REALLY want to see from our favorite franchise, but there’s no further reason to bitch and complain about it. I mean, we’ve always known who was in charge right? Pretending that it should have been so much more under those circumstances is no ones fault but ours.
