Well said. Anyway, we can all see the movie and make our assessment.
Actually just keep your face its just butt-ugly................
I was just voicing my opinion when this guy ^^ decides to jump in which his obvious comment about how my opinion is my opinion. I guess he could argue with me about the merits of my argument, so he did what many but-hurt apologists for bay and these movies do, which is to make snarky comments and try to make things personal. To my credit, my response was simply to rebut his claim that my opinion was my own by factually stating that many critics agreed with me.
F-ing amazing! I just got back from the cinema and I culdnt beleve how good the 3d was! Must see, must see!!!!!!!
Only problem is, if you state how other people agree with you, you're no better than the butt-hurt apologists.
These men here would like to have a word with you:
jakes on you. I havent seen rotf, and I def aint spending money on this either.
Hey roy, at least be man enough to adress me by name.
"When General Magnus..yadadada.." See it´s not so hard.
Just got back from the Premiere here in the UK up where I live.
It is the best movie I have ever seen!!!
Oh men if these 2 werent busy with Avatar and Prometheus respectively they would be PERFECT for Transformers.
People be nice!
Even though he doesn't rely on heavy F/X as often as those two, I'd put Richard Donner up there as well.
the problem now is how to attract a quality director to a franchise that is now known for it's lack of quality, at least from a critical, academic standpoint.
example: flash gordon. it has the elements that would make it an awesome movie, but who would want to be professionally associated with most recent one? (yes the 'queen' soundtrack one, and yes I loved it )
Found it interesting that AICN reviewers are 4/4 in positive reviews. Massawyrm in particular had a great take on the movie.
Oh I can't wait to see his review...and how over the top he will be!
I just know he is gonna hate it
from his Twitter
Me...I am excited as hell to see TF3. (seeing it at midnight) it's gonna be Awesome!!!
Bark at the Moon. LAWL!. Oh man Spoony is gonna rip it a new one.......
Oh man, I can't wait to see Spoony's review.
I have noticed the same thing. I suspect you are correct. It's also interesting to note that, on page 1 of this very thread, on the big list of early reviews praising the movie, almost half of them are Fox affiliates. Are they more likely to be in line with Bay's movie themes? NOT trying to start a huge political discussion. Just an observation. Maybe movies like this and directors like Bay set off some strong opinions about politics and culture that influence critics' and media's reviews. Occasionally it surfaces in fan discussions like this too, as we have seen.
I'm glad Bay and co. redeemed themselves with this film... and I STILL don't care.
Yes, ROTF hurt me THAT much.
Sorry, but I don't buy that there has to be some set of rules for things you must do making movies. Movie making is an art form, and no other art form has these "standards" that you speak of.
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. You find what you like in things or you don't. Hey an original Da Vinci might be worth millions of dollars. Means nothing to me. I have an Iron Maiden poster on my wall...not fine art but it sold MILLIONS of copies, how many copies did that Da Vinci painting sell over the same time?
Nobody would ever compare Da Vinci to an Iron Maiden poster, yet both do represent art. Few would consider an Iron Maiden poster art at all, yet that sold millions of copies.
The moral of the story is that all art is a free forum way to express ideas. It's up to the viewer of it to find the meaning and beauty and nobody else. With movies we have an opportunity to take what we like and leave the rest if we so choose. We don't have to like every thing about every minute of every movie to have fun watching it and find the things we do like.
It never helps with movies like this either when people just take the shit way too seriously!
Transformers movies are not unlike an abstract painting. If you only glance at it a few times, there's no way to get any meaning from it. It's not until you really look and peel back some layers that you find some meaning to it. The TF movies are the same way. IF you only watched them once or twice, then scoffed...well it's the same thing. The more you peel back the layers and look past the spectacle of it all the more you end up understanding things about it you didn't quite get before.
