Gee, who coulda predicted critics wouldn't like this one??  Here's a LINK to the R.T. Page for TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN to see just how far its Approval Numbers have fallen by now...

UPDATE: Here is a Direct LINK to Roger Ebert's 1-Star review of TRANNIES 2, which expresses our opinion perfectly...

I'm sure a lot of people are going to like it regardless of critics opinions (because they think they're supposed to), but it certainly helps to validate choosing it as a WotW.

That's the problem with Joe Blow Movie Goers' opinion of critics: Critics hate every movie that isn't a drama, so why listen to them when they bad mouth a summer movie?

I disagree with critics quite often myself (like on T4) but among critics and the general Razzie populace, it seems like when it comes to a Michael Bay Boom-Fest, most of us are going to buy popcorn to throw at the screen rather than to eat...

 20% at RT and yet the movie makes $201 million in five days!!!!

There is no justice in the world! You can almost hear Michael Bay and the studio heads laughing their way to the bank while saying "You see, you don't need a complex story or interesting characters, all you need to do is have an load of explosions and CGI, and the stupid public will throw their money at you to see it".

Precisely the reason I must insist that pandering to the lowest common denominator is such a bad thing.

I cannot agree with the views of Roger Ebert. In my view “Transformers 3” is a really great movie . I had watched it along with some of my friends and all of them rated the movie high. I really wonder what prompted Roger to make such a stupid review. In my view we should try to ignore the critics. They will write whatever comes to their mind for money. I really wonder when we will be having honest critics.

So, if you disagree with the critics, 227 of which joined Ebert on RT giving Transformers 2 bad reviews (Transformers 3 will be released next year), they are all wrong and you are right? Look, there is nothing wrong with including a few guilty pleasures among movies you like, but it was a lousy movie.  Btw, welcome to the board.

Um, "Trannies 3" is still in the middle of being filmmed, so I think it's just a tad too early to be calling it a "great" movie. And no, Ebert hit the nail on the head with his "Trannies 2" review, the movie was an unwatchable train wreck from start to finish. Even Shia Lebeouf and Megan Fox admitted it sucked and when the movie's stars refuse to defend it, you KNOW it's bad.
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.
