Haven't seen it, nor will I anytime soon.

The first movie blew so hard I had a hard time even sitting through it.

The only hope the second movie has is to take out any and all dialogue. The only sounds should be explosions and the only non robot fighting scenes should be Megan Fox bent over the hood of a late 70's Camaro.

If you take it for what it is and want to be entertained for a couple hours its good.

If your looking for more than you will probably be disapointed.

If you like the first one then you will probably like this one and vice versa.

Wow the first one blew that hard? I thought the first one was pretty darn good. And I have heard only good things about the second as well. Can I ask why you would take out the dialogue? I would think it would be a very boring movie with no talking. I guess it's just be me, but growing up with Transformers and then seeing it in live action, was beyond amazing for me.

I'm with ya born, I thought the first one was decent. Not great, but decent. It could have had more Robot action for me, but I still liked it. Don't know if I'll pay the $50 to see it in a theatre though.

And from what I understand, part 2 has double to triple the robots. And I am with ya on not spending 50 bucks to watch it in theaters. Ill spend 20 when it comes to dvd.

Don't waste your money on the big screen. Wait for the DVD. Great show but not worth the money. Best seen in the movie was at the end with Megan Fox runing towards the camera. Nice grin

I just saw it this past weekend. I didn't like it. The last battle was not epic at all, no character development, too long, most of the robots kind of look the same. The new Decepticon "The Fallen" wasn't designed very well.

I grew up on Transformers as a kid and Michael Bay has ruined them. Michael Bay sucks. I hope part 3 can get a new director.

I think had James Cameron or JJ Abrams been director they would be a lot better, or even Steven Speilberg.

I agree- The movie was too long. Lots of special effects and sound but overall not that good. Lots of eye candy though! smirk some good humor as well.

I would take it out because it literally makes the theater smell like dog carp. Seriously, listen to the dialog between OP and the LaBeef kid. Most playstation one video games have better dialogue.

Face it that movie was made for 10-14 year old boys and they threw MF in there so dads could choke it down for two hours with their boys.

Don't get me wrong, I am not some snobby movie buff that only watches independent films blah blah blah. I loves me some die hard or some cheesy arnold movie. But transformers flat out stunk.

I guess it's just me, but growing up with transformers and then seeing it in live action, was beyond appalling for me.

I brought the kid to it on Saturday night and thought it was pretty good, it's pretty much like the first one.

I saw it on Wednesday last week and wasn't impressed. For one, 2+ hours is too long for this type of film. There wasn't a break in the action at all, it was overdone in my opinion. Megan Fox...mehhh. It was very hard to follow certain fight scenes as a couple of the autobots were grey/silver just like the deceptacons, couldn't tell who was who. All in all, I was not impressed. I can not recommend the movie.

Looking forward to seeing Public Enemies tomorrow evening though.

Wow. I am sure it would be nice if all the robots were different colors(I for one would love to see Optimus Prime in a nice Firetiger outfit with matching leg guards...jk!). But come on now they are robots! And you may have grown up watching Transformers, but if you didn't get goosebumps with the first movie, the second wouldn't do it for you I am sure. I collected Transformers(my godson still has all of them in a safe place), so I was into it a little more than the average bear. Heck I was Optimus Prime for 3 straight years for Halloween!! To everyone their own, but I am a Transformers fan through and through. And please people, NO SPOILERS!!!!! Public Enemies looks really good. I am also looking forward to it!

    • We would add 1/8 of a teaspoon of Alum to make the pickles stay crisper.
    • We actually put a hitch onto ice castle and pulled 2  wheelers. It worked pretty well. 
    •   If nothing else bring the old ones in closer to ice time so they don't rust up again and have one of the bait store guys send them in to their blade sharpener exchange guys.
    •   How do you keep them crispy? I bought a jar of homemade Hot ones at a farmers market which were good and hot, but limpy?
    • Rain soaked major portions of the state for yet another week, with much concentrated in the southwestern region. This has kept area lakes and rivers high and flowing water moving fast. Several properties in the southwest are still dealing with storm damage. Badger State Trail has some closed sections and areas with standing water. The Sugar River State Trail is usable but needs resurfacing at various locations. Mountain bike trails remain closed at Blue Mound and horse trails and the horse camp at Wildcat Mountain remain closed. All roads have reopened at Wyalusing and Nelson Dewey state parks, but some trails in both parks remain closed.Fishing pressure waxed and waned with the weather this past week. Northern pike, bass and musky continue to be caught on the Flambeau River. Anglers on inland lakes have been reporting success for panfish, bass and walleyes.Anglers were out in force though the weekend on Green Bay many brought out by a walleye tournament. Walleye fishing was relatively consistent, with most boats catching at least a couple fish. The bass bite has slowed along Door County with the best success coming from piers, but perch anglers were having some luck over the past week with most boats harvesting more than 10 fish for half a day's trip. Trout and salmon fishing was beginning to pick up off Marinette on the west shore of the bay but trout and salmon off the Door County side were struggling to find fish. .
    •   That is what I'm wondering.......I found some 8in "jiffy" blades on the bay of e. However it doesn't say anything about them being jet blades and couldn't tell on the pictures if it looked like a slight curve in them..........they were in the package so a decent side view was about impossible. Somebody has to have had one...
    • The curved blades may very well be the "Jet" part that made it different from their other hand augers?
    • It's always nice to have fresh homemade pickles in the winter. Jalapeno peppers will be next.
    •     Well just in some of the data and articles I read, which might be fake news I don't really know. It looked like the amount/lbs of walleye were in the lake just that there are a lot of large ones and not many small ones.......The data also showed that the bait fish were really dropping in amounts/numbers.....   Interesting to see that a report from someone like yourself is just like what I had heard from the guy I met at upper red who was from the area. Thought maybe he was pulling my string or something when he told me the fishing was great, then seen the DNR shut the lake down.
    •   Thats the thing, I can't find really any good pictures of one. I was given this auger a few days ago buy a guy who didn't use or want it.  He only used it once when he forgot his power auger. There is a string with a price tag on it for $89. It was sitting in his machine shed in a corner collecting dust.   I cleaned up the auger and touched it up. There was a slight ding in the auger flighting up a turn or two from the bottom. That I fixed. However,  the mounting head for the blades didn't have any of the original powder paint damaged, none had flaked off, and there was no rust spots. The blades where rusted up but not damaged. I assume if they were bent the powder paint would have expanded & flaked off. The two blade angles seem to look like they are how they should be. So I'm really kinda leaning that the blade mounts might not be bent with the way it looks.    If I look at the shaver blades from the top or bottom they look like a normal shaver blade. However, when looked at from the side they seem to have a very slight curve that matches the blade mount. Did jiffy have a design like this different from the others? So I'm confused.......what would be the odds of both the blade mount sides being bent to what looks like exact angles.......if they were bent what is the odds of both blades seeming to conform to the bends without cracking or breaking........I measured from one outside blade edge to the other and got 8in......but I know 8in augers can go from a range of 7.5in-8.5in depending on brand and other things......If the blade mounts were bent I would think some powder paint would have flaked off.......I'll do the ice bucket trick.....was hoping someone had one or could chime in. It looks a little like a design between a flat shaver and a curved blade if it's not bent......I do really like the design if that is what it is meant to be. I also love the blade cover being a rubber that is tight and doesn't fall off. I just really don't know if they are bent or not bent. Confusing.....Also wondering if flat shaver blades would work on it or if I would need to find a set of Jiffy blades that had a slight curve to them.....
