  1. Just give all the awards to Saving Christmas. I say that as Kirk Cameron is a disgusting human being. Sure, hate Bay all you want but he is a saint comparison. Take a look at what this pig motherfucker had to say about women.

    So yeah, say what you will but even if I didn't like Transformers 4 but it had something going for it like the unapologetic Hasbro bashing in one particular scene. Besides, he doesn't like the films anymore than you do.

    1. Oh, stop defending that racist misogynist. It doesn't make you look intelligent at all. And unapologetic Hasbro bashing has nothing on this particular scene:

      BTW, there is no Romeo and Juliet law in Texas. The age of consent is seventeen, so whatshisface there wouldn't be in trouble anyway. Basically, Bay just tossed that in there because he thinks statutory rape is funny.

      Kirk Cameron sucks ass, no disagreement from me there.

    2. So I'm more wrong than Brad Jones giving him some praise then? Yes, yes, yes, I know about the Transformers 3 midnight screenings review he did. I'll save you the masculine, mansplaining there.

      I'm just pretty convinced he'll try anything to leave the Transformers given that. He might be oblivious but I don't believe him to be malicious. Kirk Cameron on the other hand, he's a douche.

      Cameron is basically the Demona of Christians just without the bombs.

    3. "I'm just pretty convinced he'll try anything to leave the Transformers given that."

      I don't care, he'll still be blighting the cinema with shit. We saw the movie that represents his "soul", "Pain and Gain" and it was as ugly as a day-old KFC Double Down.

      "He might be oblivious but I don't believe him to be malicious."

      He's oblivious to statutory rape being wrong? That wasn't malicious? Dude... stop it. Read a book.

      "Kirk Cameron on the other hand, he's a douche."

      No argument here.

      "Cameron is basically the Demona of Christians just without the bombs."

      What the fuck?! How do you remember to breathe?

    4. @Movie-Brat: "This guy's worse!" isn't going to fly here. Kirk Cameron and Michael Bay are BOTH awful creators and awful people. Who you think is "worse" between the two of them is irrelevant.

    5. Actually I originally didn't come here to use that argument.

    6. Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas will be more deserving of a Razzie when it makes a billion dollars and is on it's second trilogy. That's what makes Bay worse, that he has fans, that a hell of a lot of people don't see his films as trash.

      Saving Christmas is a joke of a movie, something MST3K would riff on. Very few people who've seen it will think it's good. Myself and a lot of others wouldn't have even heard of it if it wasn't for people talking about how bad it was. Transformers on the other hand has so many people flocking to see it, giving their money for crap films to be made on a consistent basis. And the money's not going away, Age of Extinction was the second highest grossing TF movie, after Dark of the Moon.

      Saving Christmas will be forgotten in the next year for many people, the Transformers films will be going a hell of a lot longer than that.

  2. Speaking of "saving Christmas", I find it odd that movies like Northpole keep coming out (although it wasn't a bad movie) about the need to "save Christmas" when Christmas is so popular that people put their decorations up a month in advance and leave them up for a month afterward.
