It extends the possibilities of what movies can do. Cameron's talent may just be as big as his dreams.
Lol, if it has Peter Travers' seal of approval, it is alright with me. I like him more than Ebert. Even in the reviews I disagree with, he actually supports his arguments well.

It doesn't get much better than Travers. Consistently one of my favorite critics.

His 0/5 Transformers 2 review is endlessly hilarious. The man has never been wrong to my knowledge.

There's a reason that Rolling Stone is so consistently featured on DVD ads: Travers phrases his opinions well and is a good litmus test for a good movie.

"Unlike hack-of-the-decade Michael Bay, who can transform anything into instant stupid..."I laughed.

and if travers had gone the other way he would have been the biggest douche bag in the history of the world

Not necessarily. I mean, some might think so, but I think most people would still take it into account.
Overall, when I want to see a movie, I always look for Peter Travers and Roger Ebert's reviews. And seeing that both of them are on-board...well, I'm on board too. I'll definitely be trying to make time to see this movie.

Did you see the message board for his Transformers 2 review?

I just went back and looked at the Transformers 2 comment board for Peter Travers' review and I was laughing so hard I started crying. The people on the board attacking each other remind me of those two stereotype(?) transformers beating each other to a pulp. Haha, I'm dying here, for example:
"Saying turn off your brain and enjoy the movie is like saying gouge out your eyes and enjoy some paintings"
"The movie's quality was somewhere between a really really immature MadTV sketch and having someone crap on your head."
ahahahaha... that last one is an AWESOME quote

It was but I just love seeing how easy it is to get fanboy approval and how easy it is to lose it. Though as a film student its quite depressing to see how rational thought and maturity seems to a dead concept among fellow nerds.

That's true. Personally, I leave the final judgement of a film to myself. If I like it, even if the critics don't, then that's that. I don't think any better or worse of the critic.
Heck, I don't always agree with Travers or Ebert. But I respect their opinions and reviews, as they have been in the business for a long time and earned their reputation.

Technical talent perhaps, but as a story teller, good lord, the man made the most predictable, heartless, faux emotional drivel possible. Literally laughed at the dialogue and the ending was pure hyperbol. I mean really, this is considered a revolutionary film. I could have cared less about the characters and was hoping that the bombast would return so that it would bludgeon the cheezball script. Nice light show. Crown got up and left without any emotion whatsoever. Not a single cheer or clap. But it is brilliant, ya right! There is 10 times the emotion in a single episode of he original Star Trek, than this Drek.

"Unlike hack-of-the-decade Michael Bay, who can transform anything into instant stupid..." -Thank you Travers! Thank you for saying what anyone with a brain has been thinking after watching just one of his movies. I laughed so hard when I read that. Thank you for always giving great, spot on, reviews. I don't think anyone else has the integrity.
