That's my "secret", wait until the film has been out for a week or so and go to a matinee. Doing that, I've never been in a theater more than a quarter full.
I didn't think Transformers lived up to the hype either. Guess I'm just getting kind of numb with all the cg based flicks trying to outdo each other. If you think about it, there wasn't a lot of detail in the "transformations" just a flurry of motion to the end result. POTC3, ok but a tad too long. Mimzy, a really enjoyable movie.
