Rotf was pretty horrible. I won't even watch it on cable.
'Nooo!!!' -- Ironhide (on 'dying' as a habit)
'Such heroic nonsense! BLAM!'-- Sentinel Prime (would've been cool)
The movie sucked.
It sucked less than ROTF, but it still sucked.
I don't care if it bombs really. What I do hate is the fact that it's probably bombing not because of the suckyness of the movie but because a talentless bitch got replaced by another talentless bitch.
Bombing? Where did it say that? Can i get a link? From where i'm from, lines are continuous.
Thank you for such an in depth analysis.
Look at the box office results for Jennifer's Body. Megan Fox did not carry the franchise. The movie is definitely not bombing. Its currently the biggest film of the year.
What, international box office totals dont matter?
Get them up there too dammit!
Why should I go into a in-dept analysis? Everything has alredy been said!
I still have the bad taste of ROTF in my mouth. And I never even saw it.
I think I am going to give DOTM a chance though.

Indeed, regardless of whether or not this is attributed to 3d showings, the movie is expected to beat out the competing 4th of July movies. Even if it as a result of 3D prices, I hardly would use the worn "bombing" as a description of the situation.
That's ok, probably would have skipped along anyway.
Potter is actually going to rip this movie to shreds.
Capt, might blow it away as well.
I don't know about that. It might have started out slow, but I am having a tough time finding tickets for tonight in my neck of the woods. The wife and I will be having our movie date tomorrow afternoon.
So in less then 3 days it made almost 100 mill domestic , not sure how that can be confused as bombing.
So groundbreakingly original!

Definitely expected it to do better than RotF, but I guess that movie doomed the franchise. It'll be years before we see another Transformers movie, if ever.
Holy shit...Captain America looks Incredible. I love everything about it. ESPECIALLY the big ol' red white and blue, and AMERICA like they aint ashamed about it...KICK ASS
Im not so sure. None of these movies have been or ever will be "bombs" it is in fact a CASH COW franchise. I would bet a toe that there are already interested partys checking it out as we debate DOTM
Any future Transformers movie would have to be a reboot because of the jumbled stories of these three and because all of the Decepticons got killed in DotM. Also, directors might be tempted by the potential payday but at the cost of tarnishing their reputation by being involved in this "widely loathed" franchise. Lastly, any movie would have to be made several years from now in order to let people forget about the first three. Clearly, RotF is having a negative impact on DotM even though DotM is so much better in every way. These films have a bad reputation now, and TF4 would be affected by this. It will be at least a decade or more before a new Transformers movie could be made, though I wouldn't be surprised if I never saw a new one in my lifetime. Live-action, anyway; I'm sure a cartoon movie is possible and even likely.
the movie was good, definitely better than ROTF but i honestly felt like this movie was trying to tie up some of the loose ends of ROTF while it was making more. Also, the death of many of the characters in the film were quite, how should i say this,.........unfit. especially many of the decepticons in the film, they were extensivly short and meaningless, the film was mainly focusing on the betrayal of Optimus Prime's mentor. starscream did not live up to is name instead was just a coward and nothing more while megatron was hardly in the film.
I will kick you....in the balls.
Mr. Bay really wanted to make sure that this was it. It was one heck of a ride, i cant say i am sad to see Bay go. Thanks for making all the money for Hasbro! Now please make a proper Transformer movie!!
