NO, I don't think so, if anything it's TF1 TIMES 100!!!
That's precisely what's turning some people off.

It's like saying, you liked this spicy food, now here's some more with 100X the hot sauce. Sometimes more is less.

sounds like he was too busy covering his eyes from the pretty women to even try to follow the story

there is a sense of the intelligent film watcher looking down on the simpleton who enjoys an empty film like this vibe going around

it's like the reverse of high school were the jocks were the ones doing all the scoffing lol

I think that the critic that i posted was referring to the slimy way that bay shoots his movies. The pornographic way he portrays women, makes jokes and portrays action. He explicitely says that he understands this movie. He understands that fans and kids like a movie about fighting robots and that he respects that. His problem is the way this film is shot and the way Bay directs.
And yes, i feel that he is right when he says that this movie was only made to make money. We are TF fans and we would love anything TF that comes our way as long as its decent. But did this movie have any heart, any depth? Did you feel like the producers put much though, care or love into it? Did you feel that women were objectified and there barely was any plot?
I agree with him on everything he says about Bay's ethics, directing and sense of aesthetics and humor.

The fact that i enjoyed myself has to do with my love of TF and not because the movie was anything special. On the other hand, Ironman was both entertaining and a good film.

a. one thing bays films always have is heart
in fact, they're considered very cheesy at times due to the fact.

b. tf fans would love anything as long as they felt the director respected their material(which most ppl believe bay does not), point in case the flames and how they were received.

c. that "critic" didn't review the film so much as he reviewed the style(happens often)
and he didn't like the style, it would be the same as a critic reviewing a modern art painting and talking about how much he hates the style so much he doesn't talk about say the balance or shapes and composition, the movements..etc

for example:

the first thing optimus says (to sam) when he wakes up is what?
as a story element how does that relate to
the last thing optimus says (to sam) when he dies?
what does that say about the characters?

I guess in a film like this critics don't need to review such things...yet they demand it of the filmmaker..

he's just talking about "oh. I hate hero shots in a super hero movie like this...I hate that everything has to look awesome.."
well sorry, I didn't know this was supposed to be shot like "sense and sensibility


my cat could review a film more fairly than that critic just did

give me a break
give me a kit kat

Roger Ebert responds to petulant Transformers fans' claims that critics "are out of touch" in not liking Revenge of the Fallen: http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2009..._brainiac.html

Boom. Home-run shot right there.

I completely agree. And again, I think it's because Spielberg had little to no involvement in this one other than when Bay let him view it a couple months ago. I could live with some of the Bay-isms in the first one because they were on a leash and the overall movie was amazing. But this one, the leash came off and Michael flooded us with his juvenile sensibilities.

impressive.
considering you cannot fully grasp my incomprehensible posts, I'm surprised you even managed to deduce that that post was in bays favor.

or are you just assuming?


I have plenty of bounds, I'll display them when other display theirs.

Cute. But you saying that Bay's films actually have "heart" is just plain incorrect. His movies are filled with vapid, two dimensional relationships and a general sense of mean spirited vulgarity.
