So I guess someone (*cough*cough*) decided to close the other thread. God forbid someone make a thread about space robots. We can't have that getting in the way of the quality threads in the Lounge. Oh no.

Well, I just got back from the movie. And it was phenomenal. Yes, to a non "fanboy" I can see where it would be confusing. But all you uptight crybabies (you know who you are) can feel free not to go see it, and feel free to ignore this thread. Your opinions are of no relevance to either myself, or the rest of the universe.

The effects were great. And believe or not, the storyline actually made sense. And paid great homage to both the cartoon series, and the comics (yes people, there is a TF universe outside the 80's cartoons.) And while I am not sure what "Bay-ize" is supposed to mean, if you have a problem with his name being attached to it (it seems to me people like to criticize elements of this film they don't even understand) then go suck it and watch something else.

Am I insulting anyone with this thread? I certainly hope so, because you people (again, you know who you are) are whining, self-posturing prima donnas who can't see beyond your own limited scope of what makes entertainment, entertainment.

End of rant. Please resume with your previously scheduled list of socially critical Lounge threads.

Re: Off topic Transformers--redux

Damn, looks like I missed a good one this time.

I liked the first one and I am looking forward to the second one.

BTW, This was my favorite line in the post above:
"then go suck it and watch something else"

:rofl:

Is this the "self-posturing prima donna" section? I'll just sit here by Tone. :alchi:

The sad thing about Jimmy's rant about people who read negative reviews about a space robot alien movie is that he's 34 years old

Funny enough, when the first one came out, I had NO desire to see it what so ever, thinking it was just another annoying sci-fi movie made exclusively for nerds. A friend invited me to see it at a free theatre later that summer so I said "ah what the hell" and actually really enjoyed it, not just because Megan Fox was in it. :lol: It had a good storyline, a good script, and a lot of great action scenes. I didn't buy it on DVD or anything, but I look forward to seeing the second one sometime next week, even if it's nothing more than a good long popcorn flick. And this is coming from a guy with ZERO previous interest in the Transformers.


But I have to wonder, what's next? A Power Rangers movie? :histeric: God, I hope not.

See,a lot of people that originally gave the first one bad reviews are the same one's that gave the second one bad reviews,which are the purists,just like the Star Trek fans that were condemning the new Star Trek movie before it even came out.Yeah,it's not the Transformers you grew up on,because it's not supposed to be a Saturday morning cartoon,it's a more adult oriented movie whit some adult themes such as war,and if you skip out on it,the first or second one,you're missing a good movie.Sorry they used state of the art CGI(the transformations between vehicle and robot form are damn near flawless and very fluid in motion) and gave the Autobots/Decepticons moving mouths when they talk and made this a live action movie.Sorry they didn't look like they cane straight out of a coloring book.Just remember,just because someone gave it a negative review doesn't mean it's a bad thing,judge for yourself because what they like and what you like may be two very different things..Like the saying goes,one mans trash is another mans treasure.I for one don't read the reviews to base my decision on seeing a movie.


Now,on that note,I can't wait for the G.I. Joe movie to come out.And by the way,if you haven't seen the new Star Trek movie,you should.It's pretty kick ass.

Power Rangers was like the best show on TV when I was a kid, right after Captain Planet.

Saw it with my g/f on Wednesday, then again last night with my buddies. It was just as good the 2nd time around.

Haven't you guys ever heard of hard-core porn? It's way better than sci-fi.

I can't see why everybody is getting so worked up about those can shaped gadgets hanging off of power poles.
