It's not that you must conform to extremes of love or hate, it's that you start a thread clearly claiming you are happy that DotM is nominated win Razzies. The relevance of the Razzies (and don't get me wrong, they are not relevant) is not important, nor are claims of you having to conform to extreme opinions.

What I'm calling you on is that you are essentially saying, "This is something I liked and I'm happy that it's being branded as utter crap."

It's a matter of you giving us nothing to take you seriously by.


Its amusing, because it is. If you can't laugh at yourself and what you like, then thats your fault, not mine. I am highly amused by things that demean what I like, but that's because I don't get personally offended when things I like are insulted.

No one is putting any words in your mouth. Your actions do that just fine. And call me a kid all you want. Concidering that i'm older than you, that just makes you a baby!(again, your actions are proving that)
Now start acting right before i take you over my knee boy! :HEADHURTS:

Yes, a lot of my comments are negative. But that's because nearly every other comment is for. I gladly point out flaws in everything I watch. I read Naruto, doesn't mean I don't see the constant flaws and comment on them. I love watching Glee, although I wont sit back all the huge flaws they consistently make. There are PLENTY of things I love that are critically panned and I know it and I love it. It's not just DOTM, I'm just not the person who's going to sit back and say something is perfect when it very clearly isn't and I'm not going to get behind people insulting or demeaning things that are considered more perfect in order to try and make what they like seem better.

Call me baby all you want, I really don't care, kiddo.

Mistaking "not being able to take a thing you say seriously" with "angry because you find criticism with things you like" is your malfunction in this thread, not ours. What sets me off is fallacious logic, and your posts stink of it.

Its not about getting offended when the things you like are insulted. captain failure is 100% correct. Your contradicting yourself left and right. If you can't see that in this thread and nearly every other movie thread your involved in then thats your fault. You claim to like the movie yet you seem to go out of your way in attempts to prove other wise.

Its one thing to point out flaws. I'll be the first to admit DOTM is far from perfect, but again, you claim to have enjoyed the movie yet every post of yours is a negative comment against it. This makes it very hard to take your defenses seriously.

No, I didn't. You keep saying I've said things I haven't, that's completely different.

I was one of the first people on this forum to see the movie, because I won a competition to see it before release and my review was very positive.

Quite frankly I don't think you can say wether I like it or not. I want to discuss flaws when I mention flaws, not high-five over what they did right, this forum has enough of that.

And with that, I'm out. Not a single comment on this thread has been on topic. You two just brought different debates and your personal opinion on me in here and took it to hell. Tra la! Seeya!

Starscream GaGa, Capt. Failure, and 5150 Cruiser, all of you need to stop before things go downhill. I will issue warnings if you persist in this argument.

Please keep the conversation focused on the topic.

I'm pretty sure Bay doesn't give a frak one way or another. His reaction to critics is generally to chuckle and say, "Get a load of this guy." Granted if critics reacted with the general childish vitriol to films I made I would also be the better man and ignore them too. Considering the Razzies are an award founded by such trol-er...sorry, "critics" it's no surprise he doesn't attend.

Granted I'd also like to see it, just so he could say, "Thank you for saying my multi-billion dollar film trilogy is somehow a failure, calling my fans and by extension your readers idiots, and making yourselves look like 4chan posters on what are supposed to be sources of professional journalism. This award will be without a doubt the most expensive piece of toilet paper I've ever used."

I really don't think DOTM was a bad movie. In fact, it was a vast improvement over the first two. Especially you, ROTF, you know what you did. It wasn't a great movie, let's be honest here, it's a Michael Bay flick; dumb but lovable. But the worst any-of-those-things? I think not. Honestly the other nominees are way worse than any of the nominees for DOTM.

I would argue the first two, especially the second. The critical establishment has lost touch with truly bad films. Spectacle driven entertainment has always been a part of our culture and just because it's taken a new form doesn't make it any different. The reason Bays films get these awards over truly terrible ones is twofold:

1: It's Michael Bay, who couldn't please critics if he crapped gold eggs.
2: It's easier to take a film critics didn't like that was wildly successful and dump on it further than take something godawful that slipped under the radar and trash that instead.

The Razzies are much like their Oscar counterparts, a circlejerk of supposed professionals yes manning each other. I was 100% honest when I compared modern critics to less than savory image boards. When you attack your readers for disagreeing with you then you lose your right to being called a professional.

Why couldn't they have announced these a month ago, then they might have got a better director to do the next series of movies. Bay can do explosion porn brilliantly, but I'd like a version where I don't need seasickness tablets to make it all the way though.

DOTM was mindless fun, but it certainly wasn't good and deserves every Razzie it gets - especially 'worst onscreen couple'.

I'm laughing so hard at McDreamy getting a nomination though, I didn't think he was any worse in this than his normal performances in the awful Greys Anatomy, but my better half wont be impressed - she loves him :lol:

I can see how most of these are deserving, but Patrick Dempsey as worst actor is just trolling. Gould was one of the best written and performed human characters in the trilogy and one of the reasons DotM was a better story than RotF. The nomination for Ken is IMO totally justified, since his scenes damn near ruined the film. Dempsey did nothing as bad as Jeon did though. It's like they just wanted to nominate the film for as many categories as possible. On a side note, is it possible for the Academy Awards to nominate two supporting roles for the same film?

The CGI effects where good I'll give DOTM that despite my dislike for the overall look of the robots.

The movie is well deserving for all the rest of the razzie nominations. They forgot to add Shia as worst actor. All that screaming of his lines :BANG_HEAD: Dumb. His schtick is getting old.

While I really wanted to like Transformers, the movies only got better looking while the story line and the designs went down hill in my opinion.

The first movie was a nice kick off and an interesting take. There were inconsistencies in the first movie. The second movie was even more stunning and I actually could appreciate some of the designs in the robots, however it stopped being a movie about giant interstellar robots and more of a boy's struggle to become a man. The story was weak, and the entire thing was a flop to me.

The final movie (DOTM) was just a visually stunning movie. Seriously some of the best I have seen and in my opinion close to things like Avatar. However by this time I have come to despise Bumblebee, loath Sam, and was oddly confused on how wooden and lifeless the barbie doll they chose to have in the movie was. By this time the movie was completely and utterly trash as far as a story line and character design went.

You have a Shockwave with a giant mechanical Dune Worm destroying pretty much everything, but he leaves it to get taken out by a human sniper. Soundwave goes out like a punk with a single shot from Bumblebee? Iron Hide gets written out like a 3rd grader came up with his ending, but yet Sam turns into Superman, being able to withstand being tossed around by Starscream and slammed into walls without chipping a nail.

The Autobots in the third movie consider it ok that the Decepticons pretty much eliminate major populated cities, but when it comes down to it the Decepticons are the ones taking prisoners and the Autobots are the ones that terminate without prejudice? The biggest shock to me was when Megatron just sits there and lets a human girl just talk down to him as if he was an emo thirteen year old going through his first rejection. This was not the proud and determined leader of the Decepticons. Bay had turned him into a character from Twilight complete with sparkly little things coming out of his wounds.

There was so many things wrong by the end of the third movie that I just stopped caring and thought, well at least it looks good in 3D and I may get the movie just to complete the set, but it was huge disappointment as far as I was concerned.

Point being, the movies suck as movies. But they're great music videos. Of course I hate music videos, so that doesn't really help.

I don't consider Michael Bay's camera work to be good either, I'm not sure why anyone would. People who have worked with him or have just been around him hate him personally, he leaks douchebaggery from his pores. Many people blamed the writers that ROTF was horrid, Bay pretty much did, but then TFPrime happened, and even if it's story is sub par it still blows the movies out of the park. I think people also use the fact that Spielberg loves the guy as an excuse for thinking Bay is an amazing director, but FYI Kingdom of the Crystal Skull happened, Spielberg is senile and overrated. I don't give Bay props for being a pyromaniac either, I an get my explosion fix elsewhere, like every year on July 4th.

The redeeming factor of Bays films are the special effects, but then he's not even responsible for that, it's a bunch wizards sitting at their computers for months on end. Also I often like the musical scores to his films (dis-including Linkin Park and whatnot) particularly some of the orchestra from The Rock, but hey that's largely because Hideo's sound team kinda ripped it off for Metal Gear Solid. :lol:

People go to see his movies for the big exsplodey stuff, his movies are successful for the same reason people like watching buildings get demolished on TV, it doesn't make him a good director by any stretch of the imagination.

Finally the main reason I'm pissed about another movie being made is because the toys will be shelf warming again. Couldn't care less about the drooling masses who go to see it.

this whole thread starts with people arguing with each other, even including quotes from previous posts but there's nothing before any of it. were things deleted before i got to the site or something? very weird. lol

as for the razzies, there have been MANY movies out the past year a million times worse than everything they nominated and they get no mention. they obviously just target the bigger obvious names to get attention, regardless of how much or little they deserve it.

Why couldn't they have announced these a month ago, then they might have got a better director to do the next series of movies.


Seeing as all the movies have been nominated for Razzies, I think we can safely say the producers really just don't care about an award show telling them they suck.

Gould was one of the best written and performed human characters in the trilogy and one of the reasons DotM was a better story than RotF. The nomination for Ken is IMO totally justified, since his scenes damn near ruined the film. Dempsey did nothing as bad as Jeon did though. It's like they just wanted to nominate the film for as many categories as possible. On a side note, is it possible for the Academy Awards to nominate two supporting roles for the same film?


Actually, I have to agree with you there. Ken Jeong was fun at first, in his early roles, but over time he sort of devolved into what we saw in DOTM. Dempsey was great, though.

I guess you can't see all the posts before it was made into a news post. Which is weird. Are you viewing it from the forums? Because I can see the thread in its entirety.

Ha ha ha! Here we go with this bullsh!t again. Yeah, that's why DOTM is number 4 in the highest grossing movies of all time, that's why it's # 2 on the list for 2011 movies, that's why it made over a billion dollars, that's why Bay is here to stay, and that's why there's going to be a TF 4. You don't get that far with the "worst movie", you just don't. :michaelbay:
