I need to find an iMax theatre here in Atlanta. You do still have to use 3D glasses, right?

i know most people are not going to agree with this but i have to say that i was very disappointed with DOTM. i went to see it last night and almost walked out have way through it. I'll admit the new character designs were really cool but that's all this movie had going for it in my opinion. ROTF had a much better story and was overall 10x better than DOTM. by the time it got to the decepticon invasion all i could think was "oh look more explosions *yawn*".

Ok,

But apparently you're in the minority on that opinion, judging by the ticket sales for DOTM. For everyone who agrees with you, there are many many people who've seen it and do not agree. Now, had the majority of people who saw the movie hated it but the so-called Transformer fan boy crowd loved it, we'd be looking at different ticket sales figures. Apparently the move was designed for a more mainstream audience and it managed to achieve doing that in a rather big way.

Taken from Wikipedia:

Roger Ebert gave the film one out of four stars, calling it "a visually ugly film with an incoherent plot, wooden characters and inane dialog. It provided me with one of the more unpleasant experiences I've had at the movies.


Visually ugly film? Wow. Maybe they shouldn't let people who don't have full control of their face critic (critique?) movies :-?

He's blind. Visually ugly? He must be one of the people who thought Avatar looked realistic. The characters weren't totally wooden, but the plot kind of was incoherent...too bad that's not enough to take this movie off my list of favorite movie of all time.

Exactly. You can't argue with the amount of success the film is making, the numbers are right there. I love all 3 movies as a whole, even if all my favorite ones died in the end :(

Ebert needs to be put out to pasture anyway. He's dead wrong on this film. Thankfully, film goers don't base the movies they choose to see on the opinions of hack/critics like Ebert.

For real, what really puzzles me is is spite of his complaints of the Transformers movies he liked Cloverfield. That movie is the poster child of ugly visuals and incoherent plots.

That just lets us all know how out of touch Ebert is. I've never based a movie viewing decision on his opinion.
