    Good IM glad it did so well without that whiny primadonna Megan Fox on it.

    Poor Green Lantern. It was a good movie but they put so little action in it that no one wants to see it :(

    Watched it today, my fave Transformers movie so far, it was awesome. Missed Fox, but Rosie didn't suck.

    I totally agree Perez As I saw Trans 3, Larry C, & Selena G, I felt a crowd of record breaking numbers. Almost like the stampede scene in Lion King.

    You're bias towards divas….Celine is a great technical vocalist but she has no soul and she doesn't write her own lyrics ( same problem as Mariah and Whitney but not like Gaga or Carole King or Stevie Nicks). Stop doin these promo crap just because youre gay. I'm gay too and I'm against that. You can't be biased all the time and don't expect irrational people (like Sarah Palin) to do the same.

    I realize this Transformers is suppose to be better but the last two were SOOOOO BAD, it would take free tickets to get me to see this one. And if I had free tixs I'd probably try to sneek into something else!

    Re: LisaRose – LOL! I haven't seen the first two movies and I have absolutley no desire to start now (or see the 3rd). Those movies look AWFUL.

    why is it that American's always come in droves to the stupidest, worst reviewed movies - as long as they have violence and explosions, then it's all good - embarassing

    When you rate films by sales, instead of quality, you are really rating the publicity department.

    I was planning on going to see Trans 3 this week (even though i hadn't seen any of the previous) that was untill i watched Trans 1 last night on Channel 4. It was full of errors (eg "NBE, you better get used to the acronyms around here" NBE isn't an acronym it's an initialism!), cheesey/corny script and the soundtrack wasn't appropriate.
    Now there is no chance i'll go and watch Trans 3 (or 2)
