Critic Review - Hollywood & Fine

At times, the action is so massive and thunderously clunky that I might as well have been watching one of the Transformers movies.

This is the critic rottentomatoes deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll flame him. Because he can take it.

Really he is missing a comma after "what". And your previous comment was lacking proper punctuation as well.

Don't start a sentence with "and".

Actually, he missed a question mark, not a comma. He also missed an "a" after "you" and "film critic".

The guy gave the movie SAFE a fresh and why would you compare the action to transformers? Transformers was heavy CGI, 100+ massive robots. This is real life action sequences.
Irrelavant review.. Nuff said..

http://hollywoodandfine.com/fineblog/?p=154 He doesn't seem to like The Dark Knight either so this effectively invalidates his verdict of the film.

he also wrote an article stating why The Dark Knight should have been Oscar-nominated snubbed. Should have seen this one coming.

I dont know if I like the idea of Transformers being compared to The Dark Knight Rises. Who am I kidding, I hate that idea. As for the review, you don't like it, okay, I'll live. No need to get into a hateful rage because you dislike a movie.

Anyone else think it's a giant leap for mankind that there's almost more bashing of the bashers than bashing of the reviewer?

I do not like the idea either, this guy obviously did not see either of the films. If he did he would understand how much BS is in his statement.

Of course he would give this a negative review. The guy worked for Gannett for Christ sake.

With all due respect I think it is artistically unfair to compare a Christopher Nolan film to a CGI-laden story lacking "boom" movie such as transformers.

Because a 100% rating means something? I never understood that idea. Who cares about the rating. Is 96% rating going to keep you from seeing a movie you already want to see? And God forbid someone who saw the movie has a different opinion on it than someone that hasn't seen the movie yet. Time to get over it. You're going to see it no matter what, anyway.

Giving this movie a rotten review because of loud noises is what makes this absurd. Whether or not it was too much action for his taste, he has to critique the film for what other 99.9% of critics are praising it as...the best superhero movie of all time. According to this guy, Amazing Spiderman has a leg up (pun intended) on TDKR. Ridiculousness!
