    Hmmmmm…… I watched the movie. Sat in a movie theater for a total of 3 hours and walked out with a smile on my face. Maybe a tad too much foul language compared to the first but my family for the most part were pleased with the movie. Looking at the world wide gross it appears to be a hit with most people. Only time will tell regarding how well the movie will do. If the dollar figures slowly fall off then you can only assume that word of mouth helped the movie as well. If it falls off a cliff then maybe you are right.

    A movie is for enjoyment, where people go to escape their lives and jobs. Not every movie needs some deep meaning. Thank goodness that people have their own minds, and made the choice to ignore you, plus all the other so called movie critics. Money talks, bullshit walks. Enjoy the walk.

    Forget about deep meaning, or no meaning for that matter! I totally saw it and it was b-o-r-i-n-g. The reason so many people saw it the first weekend was it opened wide and everybody went based on the first Transformers plus the hype. That’s why I went, and I loved the first one. Once you bought your ticket though, it was too late. So a big box office only tells part of the story – too bad they don’t do exit polls because I’ll bet there are plenty of unhappy people leaving this movie.

    Why get so bent out of shape? This is a summer popcorn movie. It’s about robots. Good vs. bad robots. Goofy robots. Great special effects. Lots’a noise. Two and a half hours of air conditioning. Maybe you should’ve gone to see MY SISTER’s KEEPER instead and taken your box of Kleenex.
    Get a life and stay away from kid movies promoting rows and rows of Hasbro Christmas gifts on Wal-Mart’s shelves.

    McTavish you are a jackass and Transformers will rip the dark knight at the box office. You are a movie lemming. Get an original review.

    By the way you are supposed to be a writer. If you did earn a degree in journalism or English or underwater basket weaving ask for your money back. I mean, I’m not a writer but shouldn’t your line have read, “just as stupid as the first and second time”

    I did not see the first film. But this one was terrible and good. Special effects were great. Movie was terrible. Yes it was no Dark Knight or even Ironman. Worse summer movie?…that may be taking it to far. Some have said Land Of The Lost was bad. As I was watching this film I said to myself several times that if I was a casting director this movie would destroy careers. Concur about lack of blood. I was good with Megan running and happy to see she has the real thing. Here is something I didn’t get. If the robots could make people robots why did they need to capture the parents? Couldn’t they just make people robots that looked like the parents. The parents by the way were horrible. Also if robots are trying to kill me….worrying about who says the L word first would not be a major priority. Saving my a*s would be. It was just mindless entertainment. Same people that watch Wipeout would like this.
