    you guys got to get one thing straight, do you like transformers, or do you like the movie.
    i LOVE transformers, i went and bought leaderclass ironhide just before this mess, but damn, you guys should know bad movies from good ones, this is exactly the same case with me in ROTF, i thought i was pretty decent and fun after watching, but by the time i watched it again on blu ray, it sucked !! yeah, the fights were good but the story is the most important part of the movie, you might as well just watch the youtube fight scenes if you're into that.
    i know i'll probably get flamed here, but i need to know, for those who say it was good and awesome, please educate me. tell me what's good about the movie with out mentioning the fight scenes.

    Moved my original post to the right location. I just want to reiterate that I still can't fathom the reviews claiming this movie was "heartless", "soulless", or anything to that effect. Honestly, as was already pointed out, a lot of the criticisms are vague, unspecific, and have a very cut-and-paste feel to them.

    I like both and I think you'll find a lot of other people feel the same way. It is entirely possible to like Transformers and still like the Bay films. The implication that the two are somehow mutually exclusive is, IMO, flat-out wrong. Still, if you're looking for a bit of an explanation as to why I (I can't speak for anyone else, of course) thought the movie was good: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/trans...-i-have-seen-dotm-thread-250.html#post6285203

    Kermodes TFDOTM review is on radio : BBC - Podcasts - Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo's Film Reviews should be another on the BBC news Channel sometime too.

    Here's some hilights of said Mark's expected rants ;

    QUOTE :
    "It's Horrible Vile, Vulgar & Hideous",
    "Shia LeBeuf ; The Charisma Vacuum.. Does not Act",
    "Michael Bay has a Pornographic sensibility, if he was not directing movies, that is what he'd be doing"
    "The Last 60 Minutes of Transformers (3) is a Fluster Fruitcake"
    "The Worst of all this is, that Michael Bay 'Thinks' he has a sense of Humor"

    I think he could have spent less time moaning and more time reviewing personally , I wonder if he has a text review someplace. (Anyone?)

    Stop making sense your going to piss off those who are using their last brain cell to defend Bay's right to bare arms. lol

    I will say this I ll agree with you on movies 1 and 2 not a big fan of either the acting completely makes it impossible to like those movies and well a plot is um well someone will find it some day.

    Part 3 was at least better in a lot of ways but I think I may just be used to how bad Bay's movies are cause I was happy that there wasnt overly stupid humor and generally the human actors were not a distraction this time.

    Also Sentinel was a good character I thought his shift to being evil so quickly required more explanation but was interesting. Cullen did a good job of making you feel how upset prime was. poor ironhide could of atleast not been decapitated i mean jesus.lol

    seriously your proving a point there lol

    why do people not understand that every movie is not aspiring to be their favorite classic movie of all time still?
    its a summer movie. i think you should go in knowing what you are going to get. especially with 2 movies already in the bag from the SAME creators.

    -The spin on the moon landing was well done and really liked how they mixed actual footage with new scenes.

    -The comedy was better and didn't dominate. Brains and Wheelie were great, and Deep Wang served a purpose and had little screen time but provided some laughs. As did Malkovich.

    -Robot designs have gotten even better, the amount of detail is staggering.

    -Laserbeak's home invasion scene was down right creepy, "is your daddy home?"

    -Transformations are insanely crisp.

    -Shia really came into his own and turned in a solid performance. The growth he has shown from the first movie is great.

    -The wing suit scene was great.

    -Much more emotion in this movie: thinking the autobots got destroyed, Que and Iron Hide dying. Carlie getting taken away

    -Bay has really outdone himself on this one with some amazing camera work, being able to see the action clearer, as well as the scale of the whole movie.

    Those are some points. This movie isnt perfect, but which one is? So with that said, do you have anymore stupid challenges for the people that liked the movie so you can try to force your opinion as fact? I know, how about you now say something like "okay, take out the sound effects, Chicago, the moon, and make the movie black and white, would you still think its good?"

    Take out the dinosaurs from Jurassic Park, would you still like the movie?

    Bay haters are the most entertaining people on the internet. They are simply parrots and repeat what they hear in other places and try so hard to feel elite. You are basically the Toronto Maple Leaf fans of movies.
