    Best of the Bay trilogy

    Posted
    cruehead

    Ok, im sick and tired of movie critics bashing anything with special effects combined with exhillerating cinematography(mainly every Bay movie). Dark of the Moon is awesome. Pure and simple. The story, though nothing mindbending or complicated, is still a good story. Its fun to follow along with it, especially if your big on conspiracy. and theres nothing wrong with the way Bay tells a story, especially this one. You just need to keep up with it. All the new autobots are at least given just a little bit to do this time, versus how in Revenge where Sideswipe just jumped over a car in the begining and that was it. Speaking of Revenge, DOTM is a MAJOR improvement. Its just more complete. The human characters are still charming in their own ways, and Rosey IS better than Fox, so top complainin. Anyway, all the new robots, Sentinel Prime, The Wreckers, Dreads, Que, Brains, ect are all cool additions and for the most part are all needed for the story. And the humor, well, its funny. thats all there is to it. And that finale in Chicago is totally awesome by the way. Even though some of the decepticons are very underused, when it came around to it, it was satisfying for the most part to see them all brawl it out. Id give this movie four and a half stars if i could, but oh well. Im sure the special features on the upcoming deluxe edition will be completely awesome too. ill just honeslty say for now that its the best and most entertaining one of the bunch.

    What did we just watch?

    Posted

    Note: This review is based entirely on my and my husband's experience watching this release of the movie. We did not see it in the theater and therefore can't tell if our problem is with the movie (writing/editing) or with the length of this particular release. After watching this movie my husband and I spent 30 minutes trying to figure out if we had even received the full film. There seem to be whole sections missing. I mean I know Michael Bay is notorious for explosions over intricate stories, but at one point Bumblebee is being held captive but when last we saw him he was saving Sam. How and when was he captured, what was he doing? Other problem scenes include: Sam is being yelled at by the National Intelligence director, then suddenly we're viewing Sentinel Prime being brought back to life, and then we're back to Sam being yelled at. Why was Sam allowed to stay to watch this if he's being yelled at? When Sam discovers information about Sentinel Prime how does he track him down? Was he always with Sam? Where? During this same scene the National Intelligence director, who Sam hadn't met until this movie, reiterates that he shouldn't call her - but when did she say this the first time? After being attacked in the office, Sam's new boss shows up to his apartment for a role reversal (Sam is now the boss, the boss is now the messenger boy). When did Sam's boss get in contact with him? Sam's new girl is suddenly standing right by Megatron. Was Megatron sneaking up on the battle? If not how does she get so close to him/see him when no else does? These aren't suspension of disbelief problems they're either poor storytelling or poor editing problems. Were these all problems scenes with the original movie that no one has bothered to mention before? According to various sites, including competitors of BestBuy, this movie should be 157 minutes long. Our version, purchased from a local BestBuy, is only 154 minutes (which according to imdb was the South Korean runtime of the movie). Did Bestbuy get the wrong version? Are the other releases full length? Finally, we found references to a later release with special features. I assume this will include deleted scenes but I think it's a whole new low if the studios are releasing shorter versions of the movie with out explicitly telling us so in the advertising.

    This is a great movie! Fast-paced and thrilling! It all starts with an ancient Autobot ship crash landing on the Moon and then Sentinel Prime, Optimus Prime's predeccesor, is revived and reveals something that could turn the tide in the Autobot-Decepticon War. What follows is one of the most exciting action movies you're likely to see. Dark of the Moon boasts tremendous visual effects and larger than life action. The movie is close to two and a half hours long, but it doesn't feel that long because the movie is so excting. The Transformers themselves look great. The Autobots and the Decpticons realy look like they are there and the transformations are all brilliantly executed. There's also some fantastic stunt work. If there was a catagory for Best Stunt Choreography, this movie would be a Prime contender for the Oscar. The Blu-Ray transfer makes it look even better. All of the video is crystal clear and highly detailed. The sound is amazing and really gives you the feeling of being there. Another great High Defenition experience. The only thing I don't like in this movie is the way Sam's character has developed. He has become whiny and unlikeable. If they make Transformers 4 (and I really hope they do) they should drop Sam from the movie. All in all, Transformers: Dark of the Moon is a Prime movie. One of the most thrilling action movies I've ever seen.

    Not in 3D but wait before buying

    I was hoping this release came out in 3D format since it was in IMAX 3D. So thinking they weren't going to do a 3D format release I purchased this version. When I opened the disc and saw the insert for the digital copy code and flipped it over I found out they are releasing a 3D format. The insert (as seen in picture I provided) says save $10 from the purchase of the Blu Ray 3D format coming soon. Doesn't say when but just soon. So I wasted about $20 on the movie just to find out I will have to buy it later on to get the 3D version. Granted there is a $10 coupon. I love the movies overall. But I didn't want to waste $20 just to save $10 on the 3D version. They should have waited for the 3D format before releasing it. Other wise, it is a good movie and worth seeing.

    IRONMAN1567

    This is a must have movie. I just bought it today and it was awesome in 3D. The special effects were amazing, it really felt like I was there in the battle in Chicago, and I do live in Chicago. The Special Features were amazing when the showed how they blew up Chicago and how the made Cybertron and the Driller Beast. I got it a good price too. It was only $27.30, but with the $10 coupon for the 3D Blu-Ray I got it for just $17.30, very good price. If you don't have this movie yet, you need to get it during the first week of the realese day of this movie or else you'll pay like $30 to $40 for just one movie. Get while its still at a good price unless you don't care how much you spend. your choice. Don't run, ROLL out to get TRANSFORMERS DARK OF THE MOON on 3D Blu-Ray. P.S: You will probrably have to do some running, I sure did. :)

    Digital Copy expiration = 09/30/2012

    Heroine was pretty lame, but then again, they didn't ask her to be much other than eye candy. Otherwise, I thought they did a much better job telling the story this time than they did with #2. As for this particular item itself, I'm really getting upset w/distribution companies who make sure to put TM after Blu-Ray and R after Digital Copy on the front of the cases yet do nothing to denote there's a caveat to the digital copy. Then they put in tinytinytiny print on the back of the box that there's an expiration date for the digital copy installation. I have really good eyesight & I have a very hard time reading this info. For Transformers #3 the gotcha is that its code may not be valid after 09/30/2012. I wish stores (*cough*Amazon*cough*Best Buy*cough*) selling the products would also make a point of sharing expiration dates in their descriptions &/or covering up the DIGITAL COPY portion of the item once the expiration date has passed as IMHO it's misleading advertising.

    It's not a movie you watch for the plot

    My review may not be helpful to most people because I typically care more about sweet explosions in 3d in which shrapnel comes flying out at my face, than whether or not the plot is actually logical and makes sense. With that in mind, this movie offers plenty of explosions, so if it's got a weak story-arc or poor acting It's all covered up by the sounds of explosions and the red fire-balls they create. If you just want mind-numbing explosions and other such things, get this movie. Now I'm not trying to say the plot is bad, I'm only saying I'm probably not a good judge of the plot, since I got distracted by shiny red and orange explosions too actually notice that a story was happening at all. Then again I loved Star Wars Episode 1 too, so who am I to judge?

    Another great Transformers flick!

    ~~The movie overall is pretty, a few flaws here and there but hey... nothings perfect. The one issue I have with the plot is how the writers were trying to drill in our heads that Sam was SO IN LOVE with this new girl and that he was done with Megan Fox's character Makayla when clearly in the previous 2 movies they tried to drill in our heads that he was SO IN LOVE with her. Its a minor plot issue, but i felt like the movie could have clearly done without the teeny bopper love story. ~~Aside from that... the action is simply amazing, and it looks even more amazing in blu ray disc format on an HDTV! Seriously if you dont have a blu ray player, stop reading this and go get one NOW! The disc is encoded in 1080p/AVC MPEG-4, another excellent job well done by Paramount Blu Ray! If you're a fan of Transformers then this is a MUST OWN!

    Enjoyable if you've enjoyed the last two films

    If you've seen the two Transformers movies before this, then you know exactly what to expect. There's giant robots, lots of explosions, okay acting, and underdeveloped characters. But if you've made it this far, like I have, you're ready to look past all that and enjoy the ride. There's great robot smashing action here and Michael Bay really knows how to make a some really cool scenes. There's a particular scene involving a squadron of military guys gliding over a city that's just amazing, especially when you know how much of it was real. The Blu-Ray itself contains some extras, like deleted scenes and the like, but nothing too stand-out. Otherwise, if you're looking for the third Transformers movie, you're getting exactly what you'd expect.

    Clarification

    Someone said that Michael Bay should stop on Transformers. No offense, but that someone is not thinking. What kind of bad movie will grossed over $1,000,000,000? Movies barely average around $10,000-$100,000. All three Transformers movie have grossed over $700,000 each, $2.6 Billion combined. Michael Bay, in my opinion, is one of the best and smartest director. Not many directors can pull off what he does. I KNOW Transformers is alot of people's most favorite movie. Someone needs to do their research before Judging Directors/Movies....

    Don't buy! ... Yet

    ok, the Transformer movies are a love/ hate. I love the transformers part of the movie, and the action, but most of the acting is terrible, like in the previous 2 movies. But that's not why I'm suggesting not to buy it right now. When you buy this blu-ray, it comes with a $10 coupon to buy the 3D version in Nov. I believe it's going to be a combo version, so just wait and make sure you get the 3D version, to get more for your money. To top things off, this blu-ray does not have a single extra feature. Just the movie. I suspect the Nov. version will have extras. I think they rushed to get this one out, and I'm not sure why, since the next version will be out before the Christmas rush.

    Review of DVD

    Posted
    roskopp

    My Blu-ray DVD of Transformers: Dark of the Moon played like it was supposed to. Flawlessly. I'm not a critic so my opinion of the movies does not matter. You know if you like this type of movie or not seeing as how this is the 3rd in the series and nobody is going to start watching these films starting with the 3rd one. Anyways, I liked it and that's all that matters. If you don't like or don't know if you'll like it then rent it first and quit leaving stupid feedback about the movie like you're Siskel and Ebert. Gimme a break. Nobody gives a flip what you thought about it nor you're critique of it. Get off you're high horse and get in the back of the line wanna-be.

    I have every Transformer Movie that has come out and this one is ranked up there with the first Transformers. The movie is action packed from beginning to the end. The way the movie is created with the designs and the cars and trucks are so lively and vibrant also funny. I love the little twins they rock. I cannot wait for the next Transformers movie to come out. I have to hurry up and buy for more action and more Bumble Bee.and the anxious parents are halarious. I can watch this movie over and over and never get bored. Watching it on my Sony wireless Blue Ray disc player was awesome which I also purchase at best buy.

    Megan Fox. Say what you will about her as an actress, but she brought something to the first two films in the series that is noticeably lacking in the third film. Her replacement is utterly useless and pointless to the story and plot. The action sequences in the film, especially the infiltration of Chicago, are really quite good, however. And, as some of the movie was filmed in my hometown of Milwaukee, I have a somewhat biased feeling for it. It's not as good as the two films that preceded it, but it still has the same overall feeling of the first two that is sadly lacking in the fourth installment.

    JUST THE MOVIE ? Where are the extras?

    Posted
    thekerusso

    The movie was good but I love to watch the extra content. I felt like I was burned when I got Avatar and the same thing happened with this Blu-Ray. Don’t get us to buy a Blu-ray and then tell us .. There is a better version coming soon. 100% FAIL. The action was good but not very believable. The need to input stuff that has nothing to do with transformers was a bit irritating. Keep it real not so fake. Make me believe that there could be giant robots who transform.

    If you are reading this review for the latest Transformers, then it probably means that you already have a passing interest in the movie. If you liked the first one, you will probably like this one. If you liked the second one, you should definitely think that this is an upgrade. Sure, it is more of the same; giant robots, fate of the world...Well, that is exactly what I wanted out of this movie. And it delivers. If you are expecting a masterpiece of plot and acting, then look elsewhere. If you are looking for action and special effects, then this is your ticket.

    Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and his new girlfriend, Carly (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley), join the fray when the evil Decepticons renew their longstanding war against the Autobots. Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen) believes that resurrecting ancient Transformer Sentinel Prime (Leonard Nimoy), once the leader of the Autobots, may lead to victory. That decision, however, has devastating consequences; the war appears to tip in favor of the Decepticons, leading to a climactic battle in Chicago.

    Awesome 3D Blu-Ray

    Transformers Dark of the Moon in 3D is an amazing sight to see. I did not get to see this in 3D on the big screen so when I learned it was coming to Blu-Ray, I knew I had to have it. The 3D quality is amazing on my LG 55" and the audio and video through my audio system is amazing. If you have an audio system, definitely turn it up and you'll definitely feel it in the chest in some action scenes from the subwoofer. Overall, this is my favorite in the series. Highly recommended!

    Great action, weak plot

    Posted
    Scotchbrite

    Overall I enjoyed the movie. It's fun to see the Transformers I grew up with in cartoons now on the big screen. I love Optimus Prime; a real hero's hero. Aside from that, I think this movie has the weakest plot. It's too bad Meagan Fox didn't come back for this movie. I felt like too much time was wasted trying to introduce a new love interest for Sam. I don't think it worked and It didn't need to be pushed so hard anyway. The action sequences were great. I loved the highway chase sequence. Even with the negatives, it's still worth watching.
