  1. The Bum was right. That was beautiful.

  2. Damn, i’ve never seen him that red in the face before O.O.

    I appreciate your passion Critic, you clearly have a great amount for movies and movie goers. But is it possible you have too much? I just wonder if you’re trying to hold these things to too high a standard.

    Also, how is mindless entertainment in any way supposed to be challenging? Isn’t that the point? To enable us to turn off the ol’ think thank fo a while and just drool over the images on the screen?

    • It’s an art form he’s passionate about. Just because it’s a form of entertainment as well doesn’t mean it can’t be, or shouldn’t be, held in high and serious regard. And it can be frustrating to see someone take a medium that you love and abuse it to pander to the lowest common denominator for easy money. It’s like if you’re an avid fan of literature and you see how successful the Twilight books are or 50 Shades of Grey. It’s not even the poor quality of the work itself that’s so irritating, it’s how successful it is. And it’s even worse when it’s a whole franchise specializing in producing crap.

  3. I liked the first transformers movie, but I’m glad I was able to recognize pretty quickly that the next transformers movie was no different from the first. I’ve seen every transformers movie once, but never in theaters. I don’t think I have ever paid specifically to see a transformers movie other than the first and possibly the second. I will admit though, just the image of a robot dinosaur being ridden by a robot semi with a robot sword….. is pretty damn awesome in and of itself. I just wish it wasn’t attached to such a bad film.

  4. Would if help if I said that I always thought even the first film was overrated? Yeah, no kidding around, people, even the first film I thought was an overblown mess. Maybe it’s because I hung around my mother most of my childhood, but I never really got the appeal of the Bay films. The 80’s film I got because I’m a sucker for fully animated films, but that’s just because that one is what I thought the first Bay film was going to be.

    I would like to point out that I WAS 17 around the time of this film and NEVER saw it in theaters. Ever. Not even the previous two films because it looked like the same thing over and over (though adding Leonard Nimoy was a nice, if waste of a touch of class to an otherwise fully overbloated film). And let me tell you, Bay, you insane, insecure boy among men, you shall not take this dick alive!

  5. Im sorry to all borderlands fans wheres mr tourge when you need him XD
    All and all beautiful review
