Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011)

Postby BigGuy101 » Fri Jul 01, 2011 7:20 pm

On Wednesday, I took my girlfriend to see Transformers 3. Personally, I thought it was, in one word: awesome. It was the best 40 bucks I've spent all week, if you ask me. The best in the trilogy. If you guys have seen it, post a comment on what you think about.

Sadly, there won't be a Transformers 4... or at least not for Michael Bay.

The Transformers live-action movies have raped my childhood. The first one was actually okay. I didn't see the second one because a very reliable source said it was going to suck balls. I'm not even touching the third one.

I know a couple of guys who walked out of the first one. I might go see 3 by myself.

It's a shame it can't transform into a good movie.

I think people are forgetting the original concept of the Transformers. They were novelty toys. (Ooh! A car turns into a robot!) All the stories were contrived to sell the damn toys.

And now they're in super-duper 3d computer animation kick-ass mode with drama and cinematic effects....but they're still toys.

Oh, I know. Still, if you're gonna make a motion picture intended for theatrical release, I want it to be a believable plot. I'm probably asking for too much, but that's what I want. I didn't really get that.

Looking forward to all the negative reviews by my favourite youtube movie geeks, the worst action or romance films give me more to laugh at than the best comedies. It's not as fertile soil as the prequel star wars or new indi film but...

im sorry but... This movie KICKED ASS

seriously, I unterstand some movie franchises get destroyed by sequels. ie. indiana jones ,star wars

But that does not mean you should want to hate the film!
some people just want to hate movies!
Idk maybe because im a testorterone filled dude who enjoys explosions, Kick ass, real life looking effects, and hot chicks :oops:.

I dont know, i try to enter a movie trying to get the best out of it and enjoy myself, not critique it. plus the 3d was pretty Sweet. (this could be due to the fact i have not seen a 3d movie in a while)

This is not directed to anyone here. just some people i know.
Ahhhhh hamburgerss!

Just got back from seeing the 2D version. It was okay. Y'know, for shoot-em-up/blow-em-up, destroy a city type of stuff. Which is fine, I was in the mood for something like that. The thing's almost 3 hours long though. I had to pee twice during it. Luckily the second time I was able to hold out to the end credits.

I waited till the movie was over to go pee. I saw it in 3D.

Sorry, BRM, but I HAVE to wait until a movie is over to go to the bathroom. I don't want to miss a single thing. (Also, I try to go before, too.) Anyway, I still need to see "Green Lantern" before too much longer.

Actually, the movie came out on June 29, and the one thing that is so annoying is the movie ad on the SPS home page that always says, "In theaters June 29", even though the movie came out almost a WEEK ago, and the ad is SO over a month overdue.
Still the same as it ever was.

I tried to hold off, I really did. After an hour of holding it, I just couldn't wait any longer.

I'm always amazed that these multi-thousand ton transformers can stand on skyscrapers without collapsing them. Also, their mass seems to triple in robot form verses vehicle form.

I suppose I'll have to see this new one eventually since they filmed a bunch of it here in Milwaukee. See if they turned the art museum into a transformer or something.

And *spoiler alert* No, not so much.
