Is this the first time you've noticed product placement in a movie? Espeially cars. They always seem to stick to the same brand, or family of brands, in every movie, or TV series
Quick hijack here: The Transporter was a big one, they used all GM vehicles and there was even a Bonneville in that one.

Now back on track, I would love to see Transformers, my brother and I grew up with Transformers. Andrew can't wait to see it, he got a nice new cool one for his unbirthday, one of the "good" guys, I am not sure which one mind you. Maybe for WCBF we should all go and keep track of all the GM vehicles we see

Is it necessary to hear the words or just seeing it without sound is enough? I ask this because my theaters doesnt have subtitles for the deaf.

I watched Pirates of the Carib. 3 and was completely lost in the theater.

From what I am learning about the movie, the script is not the greatest, that the special effects are what make the movie, but then again, I have yet to see the movie.

I wish I could have been there when you saw Pirates, I could have signed for you

The plots for these movies are never the greatest, at least according to the critics.

I personally believe to be a movie critic, you have the ability to enjoy a movie as just entertainment (instead of some moral packed social commentary) removed. This is one of those movies you go to to toally escape from reality for a couple of hours. Sit back, shut off the brain, shovel popcorn into your pie hole, and enjoy...

Mos, I 100% agree with you. I do enjoy those movies that make you think and encourage people to think for themselves, but I also enjoy those movies that I can just sit back, relax and not have to pay close attention to.

I feel that some movie critics are just to harsh on a movie, now I know that the Fantastic Four 2 was not the greatest movie ever made, the script was not the best, but you have to take it for what it is, a comic book story. I didn't expect the movie to have Oscar winning performances, it is just supposed to be a family movie, and that is what it was.

Now I have to say that O'Neil and I watched the movie Crank the other night, and that was an AWFUL movie, OMG, it was terrible. I am sorry to those who liked it, I did not.

its just like everyone of michael bays movies, its a movie not a film. if you don't know the difference films are what critics like, movies are what normal people like.
