Apparently, bootleg copies of Transformers 3 made it to Asgard.
Even though I haven't seen this movie yet, with the positive outpouring of every other critic I had to read your review.
It's funny how you think that the exposition leading up to the climactic battles near the end detracts from the movie, or the fact that there wasn't a serious amount of time set aside to learn about the characters. Just for a comparison: you watch Twilight movies (and gave them positive ratings). You took a road trip to Forks, the town where the movie takes place. Those are some of the worst movies to ever grace the silver screen, and require investment from the viewer to have watched the previous entries in order to understand what is going on.
Yes, we know what's going to happen. We know that with every movie. Jurassic Park: the dinosaurs will escape and people will die. Back to the Future: they will go back in time and probably meet their parents. Who cares? We are in it for the ride. It makes sense that you gave this a poor rating as it largely complies with your review stack of giving most movies without a romantic sub-plot a lesser rating.
Have fun going against the trend!

EDIT: She also gave Bourne Ultimatum a rotten rating. So, in your world, Dear John > Bourne Ultimatum? Is your bedroom covered in Twilight posters and tubes of cookie dough on your night stand?

the movie is not even out yet
Apr 25 - 07:34 AM
It's been open released to about 10 countries on April 25th. Not to mention the hundreds who've already been to sneak peeks, test showings, and premieres. Trust me, plenty of people have seen this movie. My brother-in-law in South Korea saw it yesterday and says it rocks. Personally, having to wait another week and a half in the U.S. is b.s.

Seriously, all you have to do is look at her previous reviews to realize what a cinematic idiot she is...
Having not seen Avengers, I am not prepared to comment on it, but if her previous reviews are any indication, I'm glad she didn't like it. That means it is probably pretty good. For the love of God, she listed Burlesque, I Don't Know How She Does It, and Country Strong higher... do we really think this woman has ANY idea of what makes a film worth watching?

I didn't think the review was overly negative, she seemed to enjoy the movie a whole lot and as a reviewer needs to point out any negatives she finds. It's not like this is IGN or something.
I loved the 'I know less about them then I do the fighting Panda in Tekken' line and I agree with The Hulk stealing the movie.
Clam down, take it wasy.
Apr 25 - 08:58 AM
I can't take it wasy. I'm too darn wangry for wonsense like this.
Apr 25 - 09:25 AM
I dont think her review was overly negative and it seemed she was saying people would enjoy it
And she gave it a 3/5 "C"
But then she gave it a rotten? :/ and I read she tweeted that was based on a coin toss?!
Doesn't seem very professional to me
Plus the tweet I read where she said her pancakes were 96% good seems kind of mean
I just can reconcile the review and 3/5 with a rotten and honestly it seems like she did it for attention or she just didnt really care that much and if thats true she shouldnt have reviewed the film at all
If you thought it was okay and worth a "C" make it fresh
I do wish people would stop with the hate comments as it makes her look sympathetic and is just plain offensive
Apr 25 - 09:33 AM
Okay I read the review and while I disagree with some of her points she seemed to be saying it was gonna be what fans wanted and she didnt seem to hate it
So yeah I gotta ask whats up with the rotten ranking? 3/5 and a review that, at least on the surface, seems mostly positive but you gave it a rotten?
I hate to say it but it does seem a little like you wanted people to see you as the spoiler.I mean I would have expected a more negative review and lower grade with a rotten
Wont keep me and my friends from rockin it come may 4th but it does kind of stink
Apr 25 - 09:48 AM
Yeah, lol. She likes that she was the spoiler. She posted a tweet picture about her 96% good blueberry pancakes right after the avengers had dropped to 96%
Apr 25 - 06:20 PM
Nick Frost? So I guess 100% of critics who paid attention liked this movie
Apr 25 - 11:03 AM
I suspect the comments will increase towards the movie's release date. This will become Armond White's Toy Story 3 review all over again.
Apr 25 - 11:48 AM
I sincerely hope she quits her job
Apr 25 - 01:01 PM
This is amusing
The TDKR trolls on IMDB are plagiarizing her review as if they wrote it and claiming they say the film and it stinks :p
Apr 25 - 01:29 PM
You should honestly go die Amy, please do the world a favor and just jump off a bridge for your awful awful taste in what makes a good movie. A COIN TOSS!!?? Are you shitting me? Just stop living..please.
Apr 25 - 01:44 PM
This lady has no idea what she is talking about. All of her negative arguments don't make any sense.
I'm fairly certain she just wants some attention. Well good job lady you got it. And everyone thinks your a dumbass.
Apr 25 - 01:53 PM
Wow! All this from 1 review that wasn't all out negative. The first negative reviewer of TDKR beware! :)
Apr 25 - 02:00 PM
Nick Frost?! Wow, what a TROLL!
Apr 25 - 02:41 PM
Amy, that's why you will never make it to be critics for top publications !
It's a slap on your face when everybody give it fresh !!
Get a life, quit being critics and be potato couch instead ~!!
Apr 25 - 02:49 PM
I saw this yesterday and still on a high. Reviewer, if you rated this as rotten, then it's time to switch jobs.
Apr 25 - 04:44 PM
I'm guessing most children who post on here don't know what an opinion is. So what if she didn't mostly care for the movie? Does that mean you can't go see it? Or are you only typing all this hateful stuff because she is a woman? I understand as a nerd it's hard to talk to a woman without pissing yourself in terror. It doesn't mean you have to attack everyone who doesn't share the same point of view as you with hateful stuff you saw in the porn you found under your dad's bed. Grow the fuck up.
Apr 25 - 04:50 PM
I think part of it nerdism taking over. The other part is that she appears to be the new Armond White. Look up some of her old reviews.
Apr 25 - 05:32 PM
I'm not going to deny that some of those reviews are questionable. I just think the hate being thrown at her is insane. There's better ways to say you don't agree with a review.
Apr 25 - 06:56 PM
plz teach me Master
Apr 26 - 01:03 AM
Nope not hating on her because she is a woman. Are you her knight in shinning armor or something? STOP KISSING ASS its pathetic! I saw the movie, and she stated her review where people can post comments. STFU IF YOU DONT LIKE THAT PEOPLE DISAGREE WITH HER. Why can she give her opinion and other people can not state what they think about it? Get a life chump!
