Because CG effects are obviously the main criteria critics use to judge action movies. Not things such as "plot", "characterization" or "acting".

I think Dark of the Moon might end up as a benchmark but not in a good way.

It seems like it's going to be the film that critics go to when it comes to calling something big, loud, and stupid, but still makes money. It could remain as the number one whipping boy until something else comes out that is even more spectacle and less substance.

That's like saying, "Those type of things make me angry because they bomb twilight, but when another movie such as Nosferatu has vampires they are all over it!"

Ha ha, yes I do get a kick out of the if one film has it then you have to like all the films that have those same things. Sure Lost Boys and BloodRayne both have vampires but that doesn't make them equals.

Star Wars has aliens so I wonder if that means people can't say Battlefield Earth is a bad movie because it has space ships and aliens as well

+1

It's not just about "one has a giant worm and so does another one but this new one is more awesomer!". It's about how it works in the context of the film, as a whole.
Interested in anything to do with voice-acting? Look no further than Behind the Voice Actors!

I don't think DOTM set a benchmark. I do think the franchise as a whole did though.
