    It'll get over 60% on RT. I know that much.

    I'm pretty sure I remember Total Film giving ROTF 2 stars, in the paper copy version anyway. Empire ended up giving it 3 I believe. It would be interesting to see how Empire rate DOTM though. I think 4 stars is what they'll go for, considering it's meant to be a great improvement on ROTF and they rated the first instalment with 4 too.

    there wasn't when I saw it. Besides, they wouldn't show a preview of a PG-13 movie in front of a G-rated movie.

    I don't think there's any chance this movie ends fresh on Rotten Tomatoes. The first one only got a 57% and was rotten and the few reviews from critics say this one is not as good as no. 1.

    Okay, you guys and gals have no idea how much you've helped me as a writer. I liked the first TransFormers movie, made me a fan! I hated ROTF, it was just a really bad movie with a story that made no sense, was not fun at all. I'm looking forward to DOTM very much. I hope it's the best TransFormers film yet!

    BUT!

    Here's the thing. Not all of you, but a lot, have said. "I don't need a story to entertain me, I just need there to be explosions there doesn't need to be a story/plot." As much as I raise an eyebrow to this, I looked into it. And yes, for a lot of you, you don't need plot. Hell, you don't need shit. Just fireworks and burning ants would make the best movie ever for you.

    I'm in no way bashing Bay or the TransFormers movie as I am not comparing them to the above statement. As I said, I liked the first one, and I'm looking forward to DOTM very much. I'm talking about a lot of the fans. So...thanks!

    Well I have a feeling I'll being lowering my expectations and turing my overly critical brain off to enjoy this one.

    must keep my expectations at a low but sooooo hard the reviews and the trailers have them so high trying to bring it back down to earth.

    The reviews I've seen said it's the best installment in the Bay franchise. Don't know what you read.

    I wonder if this movie's rating on RT will surpass or go below that of Cars 2?

    Well, DOTM will make more money for sure. I expect the ratings between those two movies to be close, considering the mediocre reviews Cars 2 is getting.

    I saw Cars 2 and thought it was pretty bad. Not ROTF bad, but kinda close. The pacing was too fast and it felt like they were trying to do too much for the time given. Here's hoping that DOTM is an altogether better movie!

    Cut them some slack. Michael Bay isn't a fan of naming the robots in the movie, and they aren't die-hard fans like us.

    Sooooo,

    That accolades trailer on the front page. I get the feeling that was made by someone here and isn't a professional spot.

    Also, it's interesting that we only have 1 review on rotten tomatoes so far. I don't know where these other reviews are coming from, but it's clear that they haven't let serious, unbiased the critics see or release proper reviews yet.


    All that being said, I can't wait until Tuesday or Wednesday! I'm very much looking forward to the robot carnage, and hoping that maybe the actual plot, acting and characters will be worth while for once. But if not- ROBOT CARNAGE!!!! ROBOT CARNAGE!!!

    :D
