Like it or not, those ratings closely mirror film quality in general.

Bays Transformers have a huge disparity between critic and audience ratings..huge. But you don't see people around here praising those films do you? And its the same people who used the 'box-office doesn't equal quality' argument against IM3 that are now doing a u-turn and using that argument to support MOS. Its just funny.
Well, critics and ratings are only gladly invoked when they match our opinions. Critics opinions are interesting just to compare and contrast. But both the BO and the GA ratings did favor Transformers because people enjoy CGI fests.
