I have posted myself, many times, about how we should all be respecting each other's opinion, as long as they are opinions and not just baseless statements. I have defended the haters being flamed by supporters of the movie as well as supporters being flamed by haters.
This is a message board. Arguments happen when people feel strongly about something. While I don't like when things get personal, I don't try to 'parent' my fellow tankers. Sonofdestro calls us douches for arguing about something that each side of the camp feels strongly about, while failing to add anything of value himself...and then backs out of the thread he should have stayed out of anyway as I'm sure he knew what he was going to read when he clicked on it (I mean we've been talkign about the same thing for months and I don't think many people have changed their opinions). Are we silly for continuing a pointless argument? Absolutely. Douches? I think sonofdestro should drink some of his own vinegar mixture.

I just got home from seeing the movie and I have the say I loved it. Dare I say more than Transformers 2?
I thought the cast was really good and the costumes weren't near as bad as a lot of people made them out to be. Story was OK. I didn't care for some of the things they changed for the sake of the movie, but I don't think it ruined anything either. I thought there were several nice little nods to the fanboys (Breaker getting Duke's bubblegum in the Paris scene), but I did think Hawk's "knowing is half the battle" line was a little cheesy.
People are certainly entitled to their own opinions, but I thought this movie was handled well. Was it perfect? Nope. Was it entertaining? Yup. Does it make me want to go and buy more ROC toys? Yup. (I'm sure Hasbro loves that!).

As i noticed X-hairs link to my review i thought it might be cool to finally register here and have a talk with you about the movie and the review i wrote.
A somebody mentioned earlier, English is not my first language so i apologize in advance for any mistake in grammar or spelling. ;)
Paris destruction didn't bother much, it was kinda cool to watch the Eiffel tower go down, it was just silly that most of the streets shown were obviously from Prague and not from Paris. The whole itinary followed by the characters was unrealistic but it may be an editing problem.
The unrealistic aspect of the movie isn't what set me off, the bad acting did, so did Ripcord the comedian/jet qualified grunt.
As a matter of fact i liked the first TF movie but i didn't see the second one. Of course i'm not a fan of the transfomers, so i guess i wasn't much bothered by the movie back then.
Finally i was really disappointed by the ROC movie, i was kind of open minded when i sat in the theater.
I hope this post answers some of your questions.
Thanks for reading it. ;)
