Cheers to passionate fans!!!  wouldn't have it any other way!!!

Always happy to read your comments!!  And you have a good approach to voicing your opinions, that's something I admire quite a bit because so many get it so wrong!

My favorite movies usually come out between May and August, and that's why I hate the oscars, because most of those films get snubbed for being too popular and successful.  This year was no exception, The king's speech was as boring as a bulgarian porn compared to Inception,The FIghter and Black Swan.......and yet.........whatever.....

I love this site.

holes in my logic?  explain!  I gave you as straight an answer as I could!!  you just didn't like that it made sense!!

And just why would you come here and comment on a thread that's about someone you hate so much?  Why woulnd't you see TRANSFORMERS in the title and just skip right on by?  Because you like to start shit and you like to read your own posts.  You feel the need to tell people when you oppose something because it makes you feel good.  You are a passionate person and have very strong opinions and I wouldn't choose to be around any other type of person, but maybe you should skip commenting on the threads of projects you hate if you don't like that people take it personally.  And why wouldn't they?  You only came here to slag a guy they like and a movie they loved and only so they could see that you are an opinionated guy with a passionate hate for things you oppose.

@sarcastic:  to your first comment, it's awesome to you and your classmates, but only average to a professor that's probably a little jaded from feeling he's seen it all.........and this happens more often than not by the way........a very good example.  Both would be right because it's opinons, which can't be wrong, and how many successful writers had to battle that exact circumstance to get where they are?  All of them I would guess.

And as for the music question, to millions and millions of fans, the beatles suck and the new kids rule.  Is your opinon so correct that you would say they are all wrong?  And what do you mean by best?  is that best for you?  or best for business?  This is exactly the clarification I'm talking about.

@sarcastic:  I actually do believe you come here to start fights sometimes, I never said the oscars should be decided by money, I said if they wanted to be truly objective then money is the only real way.  You say that's idiotic?  I believe it's idiotic to ignore the monetary success of a film in favour of the collective opinion of a small group of hollywood's elite critics.  I've liked most oscar winners over the years, but I maintain that the oscars are SOMETIMES consolation prizes for movies that were liked by a small crowd and didnt' make much money.......but it was the right crowd......the voting crowd......

@keithdaniel: I'm just gonna quote you:

" My overall point on Bay is that I feel that what makes him a hack is that he's had the opportunity to make some great stories from his movies and has failed because he has focused too much on the commercial aspect of his work, thus making him more successful than good. There's a difference between the two and obviously not everyone here gets or accepts that. The doctor comparison isn't a good one because even though I like the overall work that mine has done for me, I know there are others who don't like her"

It's your opinon that he fails with story, it's my opinon that he doesn't, it's a FACT that his previous success in all aspects of film-making have brought us here to the point where we are arguing over the 2nd sequel in one the biggest movie franchises of the last decade.  Not a failure dude.  It seems that you are the one not getting or accepting that the difference between successful and good are only in your head and the heads of people who agree with you.  And you missed the point about the doctor, you like your doctor, but some people you know don't like her, but regardless of peoples opinion, your doctor answered correctly on the majority of her tests probably as a result of studying and being naturally intelligent and therefore has earned the esteemed title of "Doctor".  Calling her stupid would be ignorant of that fact and just wouldn't be true.  That is exactly the same as saying a highly successful movie is not a good movie.  It's saying that your opinion is right because it's yours. No matter how many intelligent points you come up with to justify your opinion, things that are successful and make money, do so because they are good.   And yes this includes the twilight series and all the kid-friendly movie franchises that have been pumping out for years and years, because for every one of us that hates it and calls it crap, there is a future film-maker out there who thinks there is nothing better!!!!

I just want to say:  I don't come on here to start fights or insult people, but it does bother me when people try to say things like:  Michael Bay is a terrible film-maker, when clearly he isn't.  He has Speilberg's endorsement and would you say he's a dummy for liking Bay?    And then there's the endless debate about profits vs quality.  If a movie makes huge amounts of money, it means enough people liked it to pay for it and tell their friends they liked it and so on......but one guy, who claims to be an authority on movies can say it's bad regardless?  I think that's about as ignorant as you can get.  If you don't like a movie, you just don't like it, regardless of how much money it makes.  It's like and dislike, it's good or bad when referring to your own opinon or financial success.  If you find enough people to agree with you then you can justify your claims because you have like-minded folk agreeing with you........regardless of box-office success.........and again all this means is that you and your group of friends just don't like it.  Only by your own criteria is anything bad or good, how much money it makes is a finite indication of whether or not the film was "good" in terms of doing what it was designed to do, which is entertain and sell tickets/copies/downloads or merchandise.  We all know there are 2 worlds when it comes to movies, the artistic and the commercial.  Sometimes they mix and sometimes they don't. 

Now for the big reveal:  Not one of Bay's films would make my top 10, that list is reserved for Nolan, Cameron, Scott (both Ridley and Tony) Darabont, Boyle, Speilberg, Cuaron and the mighty Peter Jackson.  All capable of making both artistic and blockbuster type films with truckloads of awards between all of them to brag about. 

I get very offended when someone makes claims of my level of intelligence being low based on my opinions of entertainment.  For all you know I could be a doctor, lawyer, accountant or scientific researcher who's on the verge of discovering the cure for cancer.  If you can tell a person's intelligence based on a few comments on a fansite then your own level of intelligence is being wasted by commenting here. 

Going back to the earlier point, saying that just because a film makes tons of money doesn't mean it's a good film, is like saying that just because a person is a doctor, doesn't mean they are smart.  In both cases the person or film passed all requirements to recieve thier current status and no opinon in the world can change that result.

Having said that, it's also pointless for me to try and change anyone's mind, but I can at least ask that people clarify between what is fact and what is opinon.  If you can't recognize that difference then you have a problem with literary comprehension. 

Before anyone gets on here and counters everything I've just said, keep in mind that I'm well aware of all the "dumb" doctors out there and that some people just get lucky on test day and that there are always going to be concessions and exceptions. 

I'll try to not to be such an asshole next time someone pees on Michael Bay, but you gotta admit, on this site the guy could use a few friends!!

Starships!  This show is just brilliant!  It's so good to see them somewhat relaxed, I mean, they averted the apocolypse and they have angels on thier shoulders.........and they walk around like they own the place and I love it!!!

"this place is crawling with starships!!"
