    Yeah, I bet the Scalpers will get to them.

    But seriously, I hope most critics give this a good review. It seems Michael rarely gets any good press in the media world and it will be great to see 4 and 5 stars everywhere. :D

    It definitely sounds like this will be the best movie he's ever done. I'm dying to see the special features about how shooting with the bulky 3d cams affected his shooting. I generally like his quick cuts and spinning, but he could scale it back and from what he's said, the cams forced him to. That long interview with him about that sort of tech and how he handled the cams was really interesting, definitely want to see some behind the scenes on that.

    That person is entitled to their opinion, just as you are, but to chastise them for their enjoying any film is to expose yourself as both narrow minded and ignorant.

    In addition, your lack of understanding of the real-life story of the pressure that befell a man (King George VI) with a legitimate condition who never desired the demands placed upon him by the irresponsible actions of others in his family only further demonstrates your ignorance.

    I challenge you to find anyone who would have jumped at the chance to lead an entire country right at the very moment it was about to be bombarded by the full might of Nazi Germany at it's height.

    You may personally not have enjoyed The King's Speech, the film, but you are in no position to pass comment on the real life events (and their effect on the British public of the time) that took place at the time, I assure you.

    AutobotSkids -

    I'll happily re-post the review here if you want (and if no one objects). Bear in mind though, that this is a review by The Mirror newspaper, so by definition is about as useful as a kick in the balls...

    Knock yourself out, doesn't tell you much to be honest:

    THE STARS

    Shia LaBeouf, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Josh Duhamel, John Turturro

    THE STORY
    Advertisement >>

    When a mysterious event from the Earth’s past – and more *specifically a discovery on the moon itself – erupts into the present day, it threatens to bring a war to the planet so deadly that the *Transformers, ably assisted by Sam Witwicky (LaBeouf), may not be able to save the human race.

    THE VERDICT

    It’s big metal robot time... and the good news is that blockbusting director Michael Bay has delivered a high-octane bit of fantasy action-adventure that will have *Transformers’ fans relishing the film’s vivid 3D entertainment.

    Granted, the departure of *Megan Fox has meant that the sex appeal quota has diminished. But the casting of some double-barrelled sultriness in the curvaceous form of Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (British model and girlfriend of Jason Statham) as a love *interest for Shia LaBeouf means that she is not massively missed... *especially once the special effects kick in.

    The general opinion – even from Michael Bay *himself – was that the last film, Transformers: *Revenge of the Fallen, was something of a disappointment.

    So it’s a pleasure to say that this third film is a great improvement, with Shia *LaBeouf *really growing into the role of self-appointed liaison between the *Transformers and mankind, and the film also benefits from the addition of some fine *character actors – such as Frances *McDormand, John *Malkovich and Patrick Dempsey.

    With a story that’s not as messy and muddled as the last film, Bay manages to bring a darker and more dangerous tone to the plot.

    And when the *action kicks off – and boy does it look great on 3D – the film offers up a veritable feast of special effects mayhem.

    FINAL CUT

    Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a fantastic feast of all-action entertainment... the first big *summer blockbuster is one worth catching.

    I think a lot of people have trouble connecting with things outside their comfort zone. A film like King's Speech I watch and go oh man, that would be rough, I wonder how or if i could even handle that rather than just looking at it and saying I'm from LA and I'm a loud mouth American that don't sputter (self reference, not directed at anyone but me), I can't empathize with that foo.

    Personally, I think its sad that the role Hugh Grant was born to play was not given to him :wink:  Come to think of it, Hugh Grant should voice a TF... imagine Grant and Shia both going uh uh uh uh uh dialogue uh uh uh sputter together? GOLD!!!
