Dude, I was making an acrostic that spelled out "dare to be" with the word "stupid" italicized at the end. It's a reference to some old 80's film about car robots and was meant to negate everything I had written.

These where the things i thought could have made the movie better (SPOILER)_

1. Einstein's robot should have looked more robot like and less human face (felt weird).
2. Sam should have run out to save Bubblebee when they were about to shot him...he felt like a coward just looking.......bubblebee has risked his life so many time. They could have done a epic....bubblebee gets shot (create tension) and Sam runs out and then the cavalry comes in to save the day.
3. Starscream should not have died instead he should have told Megatron that he looks weak and the Primes are winning (instead of the supermodel tell him....funny this dialogue feels like it would have worked perfectly with Megan Fox's character because of her history with the Decepticons)
4. we could have had a epic fight with Megatron, Sentinal and Optimus. Sentinal could have been badly injured. Optimus kills megatron. Sam and Bubblebee destroy the pillar (control for the portal thing). Sentinal runs towards it to save it and get blasted towards Cybertron (poetic justice) as it gets destroyed.
5. Starcream runs away again (classic)

I agree with most of this and I just think there seemed to lack that blockbuster ending that these movies seem to be missing. I did think this was better than the last one, and I did find Shia less annoying than the previous films. I did find it hard to swallow with the change of girlfriends and I kindof felt she detracted, but I guess that happens when co-star leaves the series?
Also, there wasn't any annoying robots like in the last one who kindof took away from the movie, and the two little guys were actually well used in this one.
This one also felt very long and it seemed to drag on and on, they could of knocked off like 20minutes. Overall, it was a worthy effort, just to me the story was kindof weak and end battle was sort of weak,but a good effort.

Ya Totally...i enjoyed it as well...it was a great summer big action movie. Definitely better then the 2nd one...i know there going to be fans that will "fan-edit" 2nd and 3rd one together and trim the fat and make it a much better film. :)

I have a confession that I have been holding back, that confession is that I think that the Decepticon with the tenticles was pretty unstimulating and a waste of money. It's too bad, the money that was used on it could have been used to give the new Transformers more screen time and character development but instead we got an excessively looking plain yet overly detailed enemie that looked ******* fake as hell at times. It's sort of weird considering the fact that I sort of liked it not by much on the other hand.

****!!!!! Igor got the short end of the stick so bad that I even forgot about his existence in the movie, this little guy definitely required more screen time. He was ******* barely in the movie. :o

Better than TF2, but not by much. Ironhide dies and not a single f**k was given by anybody. It was weird rooting for Megatron, even for a few seconds lol. 6/10

It's funny. The audience in my theater more than made up for the fact that nobody mentioned Ironhide after he died. When he got shot, all the fanboys literally shouted out "NO!" I was too shocked for words.

what was interesting was that they didnt even use sad music when he dies. the editing music and short scenes made it look like a bad robot died.

I'll at least give 'em credit for the G1-ness of Ironhide turning grey and dissolving after getting shot. And hooray for Sideswipe getting a handful of lines. Weird accent though.

I think my audience was shocked when Ironhide died...they were pretty much silent.

It was the same way when Optimus died in ROTF.

Me though? I let out a "Aw man...****ing traitor."

Same in my theater, there was a collective "NO!". I think one woman screamed "Somebody stop him."

That's why Bay is a god awful story teller. I just can't turn off my mind like he demands. Apparently some can though. Ooooh boobs, models, explosions, funny obnoxious guys ....

Strong dislike for this film. The plot was drawn out and boring (and unconvincing), and the cliche "humor" parts killed me. I hated how people in my audience laughed right on cue like someone told them "now laugh." I was glad when it was over.

Maybe they laughed because they thought it was funny.

People can laugh at what they like, I just disliked the predictability of the "humor" in this film. Not a fan of "laugh track" humor in ANY movie.

Re: OFFICIAL Dark of the Moon REVIEW THREAD - Part 1
 
I didn't find the humor to be that bad. I honestly don't see why people would. It was pretty minor, and I thought balanced the darker aspects of the film well. As Jake said, I imagine people laughed because they thought it was funny. I thought some of it was funny enough for an action movie.

You ever seen the first Transformers The Movie in 1986? You remember the Autobots giving a f*** about him dying then? Just saying. Transformers are a little more disposeable than X-Men and Superheroes. Most of them were fair game to be killed over and over again without much fanfare in the comics and cartoons. I didn't really notice that anyways. I mean that's the reality they live in, and they had plenty of stuff to preoccupy their minds afterwards.

I'm ashamed to say I just finished that movie for the first time like 30 mins ago(Freakin loved it btw). I at least would have expected an "Ironhide noooooooooo" from Sideswipe who was standing like 10 feet away from SP's betrayal.

Re: OFFICIAL Dark of the Moon REVIEW THREAD - Part 1
 
TF3 for me followed almost the exact same story as TF2. I liked that it was darker and the action was epic but the pacing was slow and boring and we didn't need an hour of worthless new human character moments, it was tiring. So by the time we get to the epic finale, even all that stuff dragged on. Visually great eye candy as usual and the 3d wasn't bad at all. I like these characters, I like these movies, but they lost a little bit of the magic of the first movie, which is a classic imo.

The animated movie is awesome. I've loved it ever since I was 5.

I thought that Sideswipe went down another ramp/entrance. Only Bumblebee, Ironhide and Sentinel were there.

You're right, it was BB. I thought it happened immediately after the Mexican stand-off.

If I could change anything, it was Starscream dying at the hands of [mostly] the humans. He's my favorite character and I hate to see him go out like a punk, although I ought to be completely used to that by now, it's only the umpteen millionth time he has. I also wish they'd given a little more time to Shockwave. He was visually stunning, and I mean it's not uncommon to simply use Transformers like video game bosses, but the audience never even were given a glimpse of his character and he's a very unique Decepticon. I won't be too hard on them for that because really there are a plethora of Transformers I could say that about. Some of whom after 28 years STILL haven't had their moment. Trailbreaker, Skids, Thundercracker, Reflector, Counterpunch and Smokescream all come to mind.
