    The whole G.I Joe thing is strange. I think Paramount is making a mistake not screening it.
    I also think if the film gets a 20% positive on rottentomatoes the sites that were allowed access and gave it big time postive reviews will be somewhat tarnished by default.

    I think it was a smart move and I am excited to check it out (since I was a child of the 80s and loved the cartoon).

    I think it’s safe to say that Transformers 2 is pretty much set to clean-up at the Razzies. It’s impending domination will echo that of Titanic’s and Return of the King’s during their Oscar-winning years.
