    There´s being funny and there´s being bland. I´m not offended, but excuse me for not finding this one funny.

    Yatzee shits on many many games I love, and keep finding him funny. This however.. it´s not.

    :lol  I lol'ed. And relax guys, it's tongue in cheek snarky commentary. No reason to jump to the movie's defense.

    You...Do realize who she is, right? Because she's one of the last people who should be called that.

    I think the diffrence is bar the twilight comment (wich i feel is fair for reasons ill get into) she doesnt say you are wrong for liking the movie.

    We all have guilty pleasures and should not be forced to only like high art films, I think the transfomers trillogy is bad Sci-fi but I still like it. Guys like Noah and Bob would call me an idiot with no taste, but I know for a FACT that they have a soft spot for old B horror movies, why can they like those but I cant like transformers?

    Why can I like transformers and some teenage girl cant like Twilight? I hate the films and make fun of them on twitter from time to time, like gail did with transformes, but I dont call people stupid for liking them, just like Gail.

    I just feel this is a non issue.

    Ugh, I hate sitting behind someone in the theater with their phone constantly out, shining like a beacon.

    Was the word Go-Bots anywhere in this movie? Cuz I totally missed it.

    Seriously, who cares? Were any of you upset when the Rifftrax crew did a Rifftrax for the first movie?

    These movies made a lot of money, but they are not universally beloved.

    It's like if she suddenly realised she hadn't written anything bad about "those stoopid robit movies" yet. Would be funny if it wasn't 4 years old.

    P.S. Heck, I love Secret Six.

    This is about as funny as watching a bus full of children driving off a cliff and exploding.

    Actually, that still would be funnier than what I just read.

    doubt she'd be interested in watching a 25 year old cartoon based movie. Would be hillarious if she did though - that movie deserves ALOT of criticism

    Why are people saying she has her phone out in a theater? This movie is OUT ON DVD. Who's the idiot again?

    I follow her on Twitter and so I got this barrage, responded to a few of them. They were good for a chuckle, and it's interesting to see just how flat the movie can fall to people who aren't into TFs (we can be a bit of an echo chamber). That said, I have no *idea* why she's bashing Nimoy, she's way off with her implication that only guys could like this movie (in my personal experience), and if I might be so bold, someone who works for DC Comics bashing another guilty-pleasure entertainment franchise might need to do some patching of her glass house. :lol

    I found that HILARIOUS, plus anyone dissing the gal behind the awesome sauce that once was known as the Secret Six can go get on a bus and get right out of town. You guys need to stop taking jokes so damn personally!
