IMHO, TDK got blown way, way, out of proportion. There is some EE. But, EE aside, the transfer was pretty solid. The movie was amazing

This was a crap movie that I will still drool over some of the demo material that they will showcase when I walk into Best Buy (the forest scene in particular).


Don't worry! You aren't alone. I have quite a few friends who liked the first as passingly enjoyable, dumb fun (like Small Soldiers or Godzilla or disaster flicks). 100% of them detested TF2. It was an insultingly written and acted movie.

The producers, the writers, the actors, and the director treated the audience like a bunch of retards (they even had two extremely dimwitted and unfunny Autobots that seemed to show just how little they thought of the viewers). I would have walked out in disgust, but the theater I saw it at didn't have a money return policy if you didn't like the movie. Come to think of it, I should have anyway... but Paramount already had my $10!

And I also spotted the less than stellar CGI integration with the live action. I think they were hoping people wouldn't notice all the cringeworthy story, dialog, acting, editing, camerawork, and SFX faults as they would be glued to all the hot buxom babes (especially Megan Fox) shot like MTV video bimbos. Plus... did you notice how often they disparaged Megan Fox as being nothing more than a good looking, shagadelic airhead in the actual script? Her character was developed the same way. Does Megan even understand how degrading that part was?

John Turturro should be ashamed of himself for being anywhere near this crapfest.

Listen up, studios! Just say "NO" to DNR and EE!!

Who said we are looking for it, once you can see it you see it.

Just be happy that you cant see this type of issues.

I'm on a 23" screen and it's very noticeable.

The guys' lips look terrible. They have more lipstick on than Megan does. That looks aweful.

Still don't see the point of posting screenshots if you're not gonna do it right... (i.e. not sourced from a low-bitrate 720p re-encode, original 1920x1080 frame, set to PC levels, PNG etc).

trailergod's screenshots look like they are from a 500mb divx encode.

Normally agree, but since it's all that's available, something is better than nothing at this point. Those that have the BD obivously aren't sharing screenshots.

The 1024x427 first ones posted are terrible though, there is an ~8GB 720p encode available, which would give us a better ballpark idea if done properly.

I think everyone knows to take early pre-release screenshots with a spoonful of sodium.
