Why....Did bay beat you up will yall were kids? Because of your disdain for bay you are going to miss out on one of the most visually stunning best sounding movies ever? to each his own.



It was one the best 3d movies ever. It wasnt like clash of the titans and other 3d/2d movies. This was all 3d all the time. I saw it in the imax. Sound was amazing and the movie was visually amazing. Not once was there a gimmicky object flying out at the audience in 3d.

As for the movie, I dont understand why people continue to bash all of bays transformers movies. If you remember the cartoons or the cartoon movie, the plots and storylines were not top notch either, nor were they meant to be. So why do people continually go see these types of movies expecting deep thought provoking plots? Its and action movie and nothing less.

I had a couple good laughs during the movie. A few of the action scenes were so awesome that the audience had to clap! IMO this was a epic movie. Had me on the edge of my seat a few times. It was nice and long. I cant see a great action movie being good if it is not long (batman and watchmen are good examples)

I think i will be going to see it again in the imax just to enjoy the sound and visual orgasm again.

Possible spoiler, but I don't thinks so. I mean, I don't think there's much to spoil in a TF movie.

Happens all the time. But I'm sure it's also indicative of what a lazy, worthless, awful director Bay is, right?

You said that, not me. I just thought it was interesting. He also used a repeat Predator scene from TF1 in TF2.

I just wonder why. I doubt he was trying to save money, so what's the reason? Maybe you're right....laziness.

I guess he had a time frame to when the studios wanted the movie complete for release so he had no time to do those scenes.

He also reused a carrier scene from Pearl Harbor in the 1st Transformers.

Again, happens all the time. Here:

What's the consensus on Transformers 3? I read a review in the paper the other day. They only gave it 1 1/2 stars. I doubt it was that bad. But I don't mind Michael Bay. To quote a line from the review "it was a soul sucking 154 minutes long." That made my laugh.

Yes! It wasn't bad after seeing this you can do without number 2 and go straight to the third.

It is unquestionably worth seeing in 3D.

I'm gonna have to break down and see this in the theater. Preferably at an IMAX.

It's nothing I got excited about. Won't be buying it on 3D.

I dunno, Franin. I can see you adding the 3D BD to your collection. So Rosie Huntington-Whiteley had no problem filling those big acting shoes vacated by Ms. Fox?

No problems at all! You go from one to three and it works well. Know if I got stuck on the island scenario and had to choose between Megan and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Rosie will win hands down.

That is a tough call. Megan can look pretty darn hot, but she's a bit goofy. OTOH, Rosie also can look hot, but has kind of a goofy face. I don't think there's a wrong choice here.

Certainly isn't.

Just got back from seeing it and I have to say it was worth the wait. The story was pretty decent and it was enough to justify the action. I hate watching big action pieces when you just don't care about why any of it is happening. The battles in TF3 were well choreographed and the fights were light-years ahead of TF1. I appreciated the wider shots, when you can actually make out the robots' moves.

I watched TF1 earlier today and I noticed how Sam grew up from being a nervous, quirky boy into a confident young man that was on a mission and wanted to matter and make a difference. If there was any character depth in this franchise, that would have been it and it's a nice touch. Shia did a pretty good job. Interestingly, Optimus Prime also has some added depth. Normally, he's very reserved and stoic but in TF3, he got downright pissed at times and it really heightened the sense of urgency. Also nice to see Turturro return to fine form. His character was so badly written in TF2 that I felt so sorry for him. Other key cast members (Gibson, Duhamel, Rosie HW) did what was expected of the them, providing support for Sam and the autobots, without overdoing it. I still wish Fox would have finished it off but she bit the hand that feeds...so c'est la vie. Malkovich and Jeong both provided just enough comic relief and did not overstay their welcome.

The 3D was amazing. I recall only one "in-your-face-3D" shot and it was funny as hell so it worked. 3D should always be used to immerse the audience and Bay knocked it out of the park. At first, the colors were a bit dulled and I was a bit nervous. But it wasn't long before the color looked as sharp and saturated as a 2D film, only with depth. The audio in the IMAX theatre was superb. Best audio I have yet heard in any commercial theater.

On a personal note, I love Washington DC and loved seeing the landmarks. Prime had a tussel with another robot at the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial from where I photographed the Capitol building!

I'm sure the audio is great in a worthy theater. We're heading out of town tomorrow and will catch this one in a good theater in Florida.

The drawback with seeing any film in the theater is that you never know for sure that the audio and video will be good. Too often, there's something wrong with either or both.

Seconded. I have a problem with women whose thumb looks like a toe.
