It's a bit like with Athiesm. A passionate athiest still thinks about gods all the time, albiet in terms of denying their existence. Then you have other forms of athiest who have just dismissed the idea of gods altogether so much that the topic never even enters their mind. There are some who hate the movies so much they have turned it into a consuming passion - often talking about them far more than people that loved the flicks! Then there are others who didn't like the movies so much they have put them from mind and wouldn't even consider bothering to chat about them.
I've seen them all. Am i allowed to talk about how i hate them?

What amuses me is that you post on a transformers forum, in a thread discussing the pros and cons of michael bay and have to ask why we're discussing the pros and cons of michael bay.

I have no idea what you're on about with atheism and Michael bay movies.

Is it wrong people want a better transformer movie and want to discuss it?

Perhaps try reading the actual points that were made in the last few pages about why people are not happy with the movies. Or you could raise points of your own as to why bayformers are great.

Haha! Oh god here we go again!

Discuss it all you like! I'm not saying you are wrong to do so or that your opinions of the movie are wrong. Nor did I ask why you were debating it. I was demonstrating how some people hate the movies and nearly a year after the last one are talking about their dislike, while others that disliked it just never want to think about the movies again. The atheist thing was an example of similar behaviour to help illustrate what I was on about. I'm not saying the movies are great or trying to convince you of such a fact. It was an observation of behaviour - not a judgement of it.

Really, this is not that hard a concept to understand folks

At the end of the day, the fact the movies generate such heated opinions and discussion is probably a successful thing.

They may not be memorable in the RIGHT ways depending on your point of view, but they are memorable enough to cause some kind of emotional sentiment about them.

And let's face it - for Bay - any marketing is going to be good marketing because it does put the films out there. People will watch because they like Transformers. People will watch for the mindless non-storyline action and explosions. People will watch because of all the criticism and can't believe a movie about such cool childhood toys could possibly be THAT bad... For him it's a win-win whatever any of us think.

^ I have no dispute on his attempt. It was at least a good effort. I only wished it was better.

Quit while your behind big fella, your point is clearly sailing over people's heads

My personal opinion I expressed when I saw the movie. Done. Feel no need to drum on about it either way a year later. Snore fest

Heh - yep! I really didn't think it was difficult a concept but I guess I'd best go back to your tack and be an entertained observer, otherwise as Trent so succinctly pointed out -

So go for your life kids! Love or hate the movie till the cows come home! No judgement from me (not that there really was in the first place. I did say I was amused but then when my toddler dances to the Wiggles I am amused by his behavior and it certainly doesn't mean I'm judging him negatively for it - it just makes me grin )

Slightly going back to a Trev post er... somewhere back there,
I saw the movies and hated them, but I feel that I have got my amusement from talking about how bad they are. Oh and my money's worth too. Although I didn't pay , so yay for free tickets.

To me, Bay films seem to be a random collection of action scenes that looks cool, and someone has to string them together somehow. Transformers especially so.

90% of atheists agree too.

Just saw some of ROTF (it's on Go! right now) and I know it's an unpopular opinion but I'd have liked to see more of Leo.

Second thought, watching them run around the desert I wonder how this movie would look if the colours of this movie were made more natural rather than the blue/orange colour grading (Like that Man of Steel in Colour video that went around a few weeks ago).
