Unfortunately you gave Transformers a single star, so I cannot believe your reviews now at all. No-one who had watched that film would even give it that much.

Unless of course you fell asleep during the opening credits (which is totally believable tbh), and are judging it solely on the trailers beforehand. In which case I apologise, and accept your scoring mechanism.

;)

I tell you what I'm liking at the moment. The short films by Oats Studios/Neill (District 9) Blomkamp on YouTube.

The first two are awesome with more to come..



A slight majority of a statistically worthless sample size agree.

I don't know, I'd give it the one star for a combination of Stanley Tucci's excellent Merlin and Anthony Hopkins's "I don't even give a shit, look how much fun I'm having!".

That saved it from being minus a billionty stars.

Don't even get me started on why the fuck Hot Rod is suddenly French. Or that fucking C3PO rip off: When even the script references it, you know they're just taking the piss out of the viewer.

I went and seen paddington this afternoon. Bloody hell for a kids film, it was pretty damn good. I went in with no expectations what so ever.

If youre bored, i'd go see it.

It is indeed awesome. Much better than the first two, although I’m not sure about talking Hulk.

Ever hoped that the Midway arcade game Rampage would inspire a feature film starring The Rock? No?

So Justice League isn't a bag of shit. Pleasantly surprised.

I'd put it behind Wonder Woman and call it the second best DCEU film to date.

I do feel sorry for Snyder's personal situation, but I can't help but feel the film got a lot better because he stopped working on it.

His daughter committed suicide and he stepped down as director.
