Everything's been said, snarked at, and lamblasted. Every bad line, every horrid moment, every oppotunity to snark at Bay's work having been taken 2000 times aready.

Give it a rest, people.

Might as well close the movie forum until the 4th movie comes out then.

Well the problem is that someone inevitably starts a new thread saying something like how wonderful the films are, and so those of us that didn't like them much must spew our hate over it like a pack of rabid fan dilophosaurs..

I second the motion that we close this forum until film 4, then we can all come back and argue some more.

While no film is perfect some films are just easier to pick apart than others. When films leave just about everyone happy they tend to over look the little things, but if a film leaves people unhappy or unsatisfied then hitting the bad bits gives people a feeling of somehow getting back at the movie.

Plus with the money that Hollywood has to invest in these large summer tent pole event films the movies have to take over a franchise for a while. If Hollywood is nice to the fans then those fans just go on and on about how great the movie was. But when Hollywood comes in, takes over, and it doesn't give the fans what they want well fans are a very passionate lot when they feel like they have been crossed in some way.

Honestly I don't know why people get so worked up about if other people liked it or not. Critics were pretty rough on the first Hobbit movie but that hasn't dulled my enjoyment of the movie a single ounce. Telling people to not complain isn't going to get rid of their negative feelings, it just means you want to pretend everyone loved something so you can somehow justify your own enjoyment.

Why don't the movie fans give praising the films a rest? Everything positive about the films has been talked about and praised 2000 times. Why continue trying to defend them and talk about how good they are?

The people who dislike the films have just as much right to discuss the films as the people who like them.

I think we're much more civilized at this than the Star Trek fandom though.

Because the movies deserve it.
If Hitler were alive would you just stop saying bad things about him? No you wouldn't. You would remind him every single day what a douche he was.
It's a similar principle. LOL!

They do it because the flaws of a movie based of a tv show you watched as a child/growing up - hurt more than just emotionally but also physically and mentally and will stay with you forever - especially when you forked out money to go watch something that didnt reach anywhere near you expectations.

Until the fans have Bay's head on a pole there will be no end to this

Because I truly believe these films could have been some of the best sci-fi action films ever made.
