    Um. The reason they're pushing reviews so hard seems sort of obvious; that being, they're doing a push for good reviews to turn around the negative public perception of the film (due to the ROTF feedback)

    the guy is entitled to his opinion about how or why Bay made this movie and the pressure Bay was under to do so. Let the guy speak his opinion. Is it really hurting anyone?

    Why are you people having your panties in a bunch?

    ROTF was given rave reviews about how it was 2 times better than the first movie, and in the end it came out 2 times worse. I would wait until I see it or by word of mouth from ordinary people whose job doesn't depend on not badmouthing people that pay their jobs, as is the case with most TV/film/game journalists.

    "Sucks" well, what a review! I don't expect a masterpiece, just something more coherent than Revenge of the Fallen.

    What negative perception due to ROTF feedback?
    If people ever disliked Transformers2 movie then DVD/BluRay sales wouldn't have been higher than the first movie as much as the second movie boxoffice gross was higher than the first one.
    This is a fact that can't be disproved.
    Don't fell for the all new Paramount marketing tactic trying to tell that Transformers2 sucked and Transformers3 is perfect. I found all of that first of all disrespectful to all those customers that loved the first two movies including the second one which turned it into an higher financial success than the first one.
    It really looks like Paramount is trying to sell the movie to those that didn't love the first two instead of those that loved them this time.
    Which means that they are not confident of having a stronger product at all, otherwise any group wouldn't change its marketing tactics trying targeting other potential customers first but wouldn't care at all and be confident of having the actual customers that paid for the first two spreading the word more than before to keep enlarging actual customers base, which is what happened with Transformers2 despite all the hatred everywhere. People word of mouth did the best marketing for Paramount not critics reviews nor journalists nor 'net forums.

    I think most are more angry that they waited all that time to hear an early report on the film, and all they got was a two syllable review.

    So what will happen when the word of mouth makes DOTM an even bigger hit than ROTF?

    Actually, I found some problems with the Latin American audio/subtitle translations. Bay trusts me and ask me to supervise. Plain and simple.

    You so sure that is what is going to happen?
    How comes you are clearly more confident than Paramount managers and marketing machine that changed its tactic 180degrees doing the opposite of what they did with the first two movies and all of a sudden cares more about critics reviews and journalists thoughts than actual people?

    @Nelson

    Did you help out only with the Spanish translation or did you supervise all of transflations?

    P.S. I reallu apologise for calling you a troll and all that jazz with the whole Dino and Q thing, you were right all along!

    The movie will obviously fail because Megan Fox is not in it.

    She was too busy filming the masterpiece of Passion Play

    No prob.

    I was originally ask to supervise the Spanish Castellan, Italian, and Portuguese versions, but do to the time constraints I ended just working with the Latin American one.

    There have been reviews of DOTM out there for a long time. Don't you remember when Michael Bay personally showed footage to a bunch of press? That was over a month ago.

    As far as official reviews from actual paid critics? Sorry, but you are completely mistaken if you think those are released weeks in advance. Try a few days, at best.
