A long time friend of mine on FB is going to see it... however, I see no reason to jump aboard, I think I'll sit this one out and MAYBE rent it when it comes to Amazon VOD sometime next year, or if it turns out to be really good I'll catch it at the dollar theater. I admit, I do like the designs of some of the Transformers, but it takes a lot more than just changing the designs to make me want to put myself through yet another live action Transformers movie.

Yeah. With Bay out of the picture, this has the most potential to be a good live-action Transformers movie that we've ever had. I just wish they'd start over from scratch.

Agreed on both counts.

I was VERY surprised to see that the first tomato rating on Rotten Tomatoes has Bumblebee currently sitting (at least for now) at a 100% rating. AFAIK that has never happened for any Transformers movie, not even the one from the 80's. I might have to go back on my sacred vow and actually see this damn thing. Still though, if I go see it opening night or the next day I am going to enter that theater very cautiously. Kind of like the way a Mongoose approaches a Cobra.

20 ratings so far, and it's at 95%. That is very impressive.

Yeah. A lot of the actual reviews are like, "Wow. This doesn't suck at all! It's pretty watchable!" It's not exactly glowing praise, but that's the bar the Transformers movies have set for themselves.

Yeah, I'll have to see some more reviews before I'm gonna decide to see this thing. There's something else I want to factor in and that's the run time. On IMDB it says it's 113 minutes and I'm grateful for that because anything over 2 hours featuring giant robots fighting is just approaching overkill even for me.

That surprised me too. I might just flip a coin to decide whether or not I'm going to go see this.
