Oh gosh, yeah, I'm familiar with CinemaSins. I watch everything they come out with for the lolz and even agree with most of what they say, but I just don't agree with a lot of what they say about the TF movies. While I thought the bonus rounds for AoE were hysterical (soooo many american flags ), and realize the videos are made mainly for comedic value, it seems like there's just too much personal bias against the director to actually recognize anything good from the films.
For instance they did Finding Dory today. I really disagreed with what they said in that one, but still found some of what they said to be funny. They started a podcast a few months back and listen to that every week. Even though I know they would rant and rave the entire time, I kinda wish they would spend an entire episode talking about the TF movies just to get all of their opinions on all of them in one place.
They did say on this week's episode that they won't belittle a person if they do like a movie they think is terrible like other people on the internet do, because the internet seems to be pretty bad about that. Everyone on here has been very civil and respectful, even when they disagree with opinions, and that's fantastic.
Maybe I'm just an optimist and find it more difficult to see the bad in movies, but I'll always love the TF films no matter their faults.
I guess a good litmus test for the quality of these movies is that if I think one of them is just awful, then it truly is a bad movie given my questionable standards
EDIT: and actually, I would've added a sin to Part 1. Underage drinking. Hello?!?!
