Default Do all HD-DVD fans like Transformers? Do BD fans like Spiderman3?

I've noticed a common theme among HD-DVD boosters: Transformers!

Do you guys actually like this movie? I've heard uniformly negative things about it. It has a "Rotten" rating on RottenTomatoes. Its a Michael Bay film for god's sake! He's reached the point of self-parody in Hollywood.

The same can be said of Spiderman3. Although its faired considerably better than Transformers critically, its still a mediocre film. It doesn't deserve to have so many BD fans fawning over it.

I think we may be losing sight of what actually matters: Movies! Let's not stoop to praising garbage just because it sells well on our format (lol) of choice.

I admit a good demo can be breathtaking even if the movie is lousy, but there's plenty of good demos attached to films that are actually worth watching.

I'm watching the Big L right now.

In HDM it is brilliant.

It's always been about the movies.

This movie alone is worth the 200 bucks.

/transformers is a rent, Sm3 belongs on VHS.

I really hated transformers, and I think Spider-Man 3 is meh. I feel Spider-Man 3 is a much better movie out of the two though.

it would also be interesting to ask if all HD DVD fans hate spidey3 and if all BD fans hate Transformers...

Spidey 3 was the worst of the 3 and Transformers is the reason I went neutral...

BD is my format of choice!

I'm a HD DVD owner and been a born again Transformer fan since 96..... and I love the movie..... Not because of the acting, which was mediocre (really common in a lotta Michael Bay films) I didn't buy the HD cuz of the quality either..... seemed too stylized and grainy in a lotta shots....... The only reason I liked the movie was because of the badassness of the Robots that we all remembered from way back when....

I don't care for blu ray yet... but I really wished Spiderman 3 was coming to HD.... I read all the reviews and everybody said it sucked n this n that, but I really liked it.......liked it more than the first 2.... and Yeh it's cheesy, but all three movies are cheesy.... IMO

Transformers was AWESOME. Pure unadulterated fun. Sure it was kind of stupid, but god damn was it entertaining.

Spiderman 3 was meh...some good action sequences, I like the characters, but it was a pretty sloppy movie. Still worth watching and owning for me.

That being said, I own Blu-Ray, and have no intention to buy HD-DVD...and look forward to it dying. Then I can get my Transformers on my format.

Neither will win a lot of oscars but I did buy SM3 on Blu and would have bought Transformers if it were available on Blu.
