    Really? Who the HELL gave it bad reviews? I went in with low hopes, not from reviews, but I was like "eh its another movie, one was pretty good, this should be too"

    And came out with a boner (and not just because of Megan Fox).

    Brilliant story, history revealed, moments of tragedy, moments of absolute hilarity, and an ending that you did not imagine could be. It shocks you to the core.

    Not too mention, as you guess, the action makes you hate your life for the sheer boredom it represents in comparison.

    I was told that Ebert gave it a bad review so I looked it up. Then I went to rottentomatoes and it had a 20 something % rating. most critics hated it.

    wow, who pissed in their cheerios? Well either way, its one of those movies if you dont see, you will be pissed because everyone will be talking about it for the next 2 months. Its worth having under the belt, enjoyable at least.

    I still give it an 8.8-9.0 out of 10 personally, and I am hard and judgmental on movies.

    "If you want to save yourself the ticket price, go into the kitchen, cue up a male choir singing the music of hell, and get a kid to start banging pots and pans together. Then close your eyes and use your imagination."

    "The movie has been signed by Michael Bay. This is the same man who directed "The Rock" in 1996. Now he has made "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." Faust made a better deal. This isn't a film so much as a toy tie-in."

    "There are many great-looking babes in the film, who are made up to a flawless perfection and look just like real women, if you are a junior fanboy whose experience of the gender is limited to lad magazines."

    Ebert is a huge movie fan, and he reviews the vast majority of movies favorably. This movie must be awful for him and ~75% of other critics to review it negatively.

    Was at 22 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. That is a large group of critics. I may go see it. The reviews are scaring me away.

    I am not too big on these Michael Bay films. Its like they converse in one liners. The dialogue is very weird to me. And the action is entirely CGI. I just cant get into it like I can with movies with better charactar development.

    Shia LeBouf = Horrid Dialogue + box office poison.

    I saw it Wednesday. They had it open to some of the Brass, so I went. It wasn't as good as the first one, which was/is one bad ass movie, but it's still better than what some are reporting. And Megan, well, I'll just leave it at this...


    The best movie thus far this summer, The Hangover; I laughed like there's no tomorrow.

    Just got back... Plenty of action but over all the movie was a big disappointment. I expected a lot more. Just too many stupid moments that wrecked the good parts.

    I enjoyed it for what it was: a mindless action film. It would have been nice if the plot was a little more solid, but I was too destracted by the crazy action sequences to care.

    Had quite a few funny moments too. Not all the attempts at humor were sucessful, imo...I guess they were trying to reach a wide audience. And those two over-stereotyped robots: omg, wtf was that.

    Not one of my favorite movies, but it was a lot of fun to watch in the theater. The slow-mo of Megan Fox running = gold.

    The 3rd, Return of the Sith. Great movie, best of the new 3 by far.

    Honestly the one minute of the movie with the lil truck bot doing you know what to Megan Fox made the movie for me ^.^ I LOLed for 10 minutes. That lil robot was doing hat every man, and half the women, in the audience would do.

    Did Total Recall and the original Terminator have good plotlines? Why yes...yes they did. It can be done with actual writing talent.

    I saw it opening night. Actually don't know what disappointed people. There were some intense fight sequences. This film was geared more for the Transformers than humans. It was pretty intense watching Optimus fight with two swords. Was it a perfect film? No. It wont be as good as the first because there can only be a first. I did like it though. Very much an interesting film that kept my attention after a grueling leg workout.

    I think X-Men had a similar plot of traveling back in time to to prevent future crises(Cable?) as well as a few other series, I cant remember at the moment though, I just seen it. I Know there was also an instance with Green Lantern like that.

    The plot was basically simple like most protagonist/antagonist movies: stop the bad guy.

    Sam's character is a simple kid that is really a wimp that takes up the challenge to help out...even though he is ill equipped. Its really inspirtational in the underdog not giving up when he should.

    Honestly if I was in his shoes at that moment, I probably would scream like a girl too LOL. Well, I dont think my vocal cords could do that, but I would scream like a lil biznitch. Then again, anyone who says he wouldn't is lying to you lol.

    He both just got you know whated by a robot, and pissed of Megan Fox.

    It's part of the reason so many people love LOTR/Hobbit. It's the little guy sucking it up and showing courage, loyalty and determination.
