Hey there... Just wondering if anyone caught the new Transformers movie yet, and if it was any good... I'm trying to decide on a movie to see tonight (I try to see everything), but I don't know if I should rush to this one. The sound and CGI is probably really good at least...

Friend of mine took his lady to see it today. They both seemed fairly impressed.

I wouldn't expect much in the way of plot. Just switch off your brain and enjoy the robot punching.

It should a fun movie to see on the big screen... A better question would be whether I should see it over Angels and Demons or Drag Me To Hell, I guess. =P

"Drag me to Hell" was way fun. I enjoyed it more than the original Transformers, at least.

And I don't know if you could pay me to see "Angels and Demons."

What? It was funny, and campy. And it makes you jump in all the right places.

Transformers was fun, and I'm really glad I saw it in the theater. I would like to see the second one in the theater, too. But DMTH was awesome. Smiley: nod

Yeah, I reallllyyy wanna see Drag Me To Hell, but my friends aren't big horror fans, so it's more of whether or not I can "Drag My Friends to a Horror Flick"... =/

Angels and Demons has been like last on my list, but I try to see as many movies as I can, so I'll watch it if I run out of movies to see. Otherwise, I'll have to catch it on Blu-Ray or something when it comes out...

I'm sorry Belkira, but I just can't be with anyone who doesn't think that Transformers is better than Drag Me To Hell. You'll have to resort to Mindel from now on for husband cheating and such.

I enjoyed the trailer for 2012 more than the movie, but it was decent. Definitely not as good as the first one, unfortunately.

The story boils down to they have this thing and we want it so we are going to spend the next two and half hours fighting a lot to see who gets it. As a special effects filled action movie it was passable. But I certainly won't ever sit through it again.

At least Megan Fox is showing off her tits most of the movie. They are actually more interesting than most of the fight scenes. About the only good one is right around the middle of the movie in which Optimus Prime is killed. The rest are so fast paced and jumbled that you really can't tell what's actually going on in most of them.

Seriously don't mouse over that if you don't want know what happens.

Just got back from seeing his and honestly I cant think of a worse film Ive seen this year. Only positive thing I can say about this is is thats its better than the original which i scored 1/10 on imdb, this one gets a 4 from me. Its just boring unless you like fighting robots then I guess you will love it.

Saw it just now.

I'm a huge fan of the series, and I very much enjoyed the movie. It did drag a little, especially the whole Egypt thing, but I thought it was awesome.

Little less Megan Fox, little more Arcee next time plox. Hubba hubba.

Anyone who went to see this movie should already be armed with the knowledge that there is no plot. Its ultimately going to be about robot fighting and if you thought otherwise then you need to kill yourself. That being said, I loved the movie.

I refuse to pay for this movie. The first transformers was incredibly horrible and this one only sounds worse. I realize a certain amount of chuckling can be provoked for judging a movie I haven't seen, but gold transmuting into jello would be a less significant change than the sequel turning into a decent movie.

It's not just the shiz writing. Shiz writing can be acceptable in certain situations. The problem is that for what is supposed to be an action movie touting its special effects Tranformers looks like shizno. The special effects all look very expensive, but none of it looks very good. It's like someone spent a trillion dollars modeling the most realistic looking computer generated blade of grass ever made and said "Look how amazing this is!" I don't give a damn how much you spent. The action sequences were boring and uninspired. The robots are exactly like Ebert described, a collection of scrap metal barely resembling anything.

I don't understand why so many people like this movie. I can understand ignoring sh*tty story for good special effects, but I can't understand ignoring sh*tty story for sh*tty special effects. I've seen independent films with better actions sequences.

One thing that really stuck out to me about this movie... Did it seem to anyone else like they skimped on the sound effects? I mean, I'm all for not having my ear drums blown out every time a giant robot slams into a building, but seriously... I recall several instances where there was a large explosion or something that should have made a big boom, and the noise was absent; meanwhile, Optimus Prime's speaking voice rang through the theater clear as day. It's great that we could hear him clearly, but it just seemed weird how they skipped so many sound effects.

The new Star Trek Movie blows all of those other movies out of the water.

There's no need to have been a Trekkie, or just a follower of any of the series, or to have seen any of the original series. This is just simply the best science fiction movie that's been made for years. I spent the first hour and a half with goose-bumps going up and down my body.

I never really had an interest for Star Trek, but my friend got me to watch the movie. I was not disappointed Smiley: thumbsup

Also, I wouldn't mind watching the new Transformers. I rarely watch movies for the plot anyway. That's what books and anime are for.

I am certainly not a Trekkie, though I have watched a couple old episodes of the show because I was bored and Shatner is awesome. =P Either way, I really enjoyed Star Trek. It was a well put together film; the acting was great, the plot was great, well directed, and the CGI and soundcrews really did an awesome job. =)

That being said;

Transformers... Better than I expected after reading a couple reviews and hearing things about it on here this morning. It still was only an average movie... I heard that the fight scenes look like a cluttered mess, but what really was more irritating to me was that they put a bunch of columns and broken walls in front of that cluttered mess most of the time. Add a shaky, fast-moving camera, and it makes it even more confusing to watch. John Turturro was funny, but some of the jokes throughout the movie fell flat. Also, there were a ton of really annoying voices on some of those robots... I felt like if more scenes were left on the cutting room floor, it could have been a much better movie, and maybe even a pretty good one... =)

This is one of the only two downsides I'll agree with. I would have liked it more if autobots weren't made of a bunch of scrap parts that you could just absorb to make yourself more awesome <.<;

The fight scenes were also a problem in one and two, but it's not that big of a problem. I had to focus on the fight scenes to follow them, but I was able to follow them. To me that's slightly more win than it is loss. It has you on the edge of your seat so that you're not missing anything.

This is basically the entire point. If you go into a Transformers film expecting anything other than some giant robots fighting each other, you will be disappointed. I mean, I don't rent The Piano expecting to see giant robots fighting, and then complain afterwards that the movie had no giant robots in it.

I can understand why you wouldn't like the film, but don't pretend that it's the film's fault. It has never advertised itself as anything other than a giant robot smackdown with as little plot as necessary to tie the giant robot fights together.

Girls go Lesbo over Megan all the time.

But Seriously, I saw it in Imax today and I was really impressed. I go to movies to be entertained, not look for some epic story or anything. I admit that it was kind of drawn out and dry at times, but it entertains you for the most part.

Saw it about a week ago.

Today I bought a mini Bumblebee toy for my desk today, it looks pretty cool. I would like a metal version, but this one will do for now. =D

Saw it today, deeply offended by the twins, preferred bipedal Devastator to quadruped version with balls of steel (ha), annoyed that Megaton was willingly serving someone without trying to overthrow him, also annoyed that they ripped off Terminator.

Btw, anyone recognize the other 2 Constructicons? I thought I saw all 6 form Devastator then they show up.

Everyone bitched about the first Transformers having too much people, not enough robots. Well, this movie delivered on that request. Wasn't a fan of the "Twins" being there for sh*tastic comedy relief.

Also, I'm pretty sure Galkaman is gay. Less Megan Fox? Her sweaty tits in Egypt while running were fantastic.
