    So with Transformers III less than a week away, are you going to watch it? And more importantly will you be watching it on release day?

    My Mrs was on set during the major fight scene in Chicago, on Michigan Ave. Thus I'm really excited to see all the CGI added, since she took photos of the set from the hotel [Westin]...

    Watched it this morning. Much better than the second in my opinion.

    I saw it at a midnite showing and I loved it but I am a big Transformers fan too.

    Honestly terrible in my opinion...CGi fest to no end, which i expected, but i was also hoping for their to be at least a some what legitimate story, better than the 2nd movie (which was almost unwatchable), and this film was only a hair better. Would not recommend, and deff would not pay IMAX money again...though, thinking about it, the action sequences were made better with the IMAX experience, so perhaps if you must go, that is the way to see it.

    Either way...meh.

    Michael Bay loved the footage so much he used it twice!


    And apparently it's not the first time:

    And apparently it's not the first time:
    Post production...Bay has little if anything to do with that kind of thing technically (outside of input on the final product), his editing crew used fill in shots, which isn't uncommon. His primary responsibility is making sure the actors film correctly...look at his producers and execs to be more involved with post production editing.

    Some of it goes way beyond fill, thoughto have two films by the same director use the same crash shot as part of a major set piece just looks lazy, regardless of where the blame falls. I mean, it's not like it was in the background; it's the whole focus of the shot.

    Post production editing...I'd be surprised if Bay was involved in even 10% of that process...

    Ok, I admittedly know little about directing or post-production, but don't you think it's at least a LITTLE weird that at least two of his films have recycled footage from two of his own older films? Why don't we see that footage in other blockbusters that he had nothing to do with?

    I'm not saying he's the only guy responsible, but if he works with the same crew a lot, maybe he needs a better post-production team.

    It's happened like this because he's used the same editing crew for over a decade, Jerry Bruckheimer created his team and it's made boat loads of money ever since, so his philosophy is probably why fix what isn't broken? Re-using pieces of old film isn't uncommon, his movies are just so widely seen that it gets noticed more...if you search online for this kind of thing, you'll see it happens a lot more than you'd think.

    I guess. But for a really great use of reused footage, check out Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid.

    i am going to assume i am the only one here who despises Shia LaBeouf.. every time i see or hear about him outside of films he acts like total a ******. TMZ is normally all over this guy and i LOVE it

    that being said, i really enjoyed the first two but i may just wait for this one to hit Netflix..

    Don't know whether to see it in the cinema as I have it downloaded. People saying its not that good

    If I was to see it rather see it in IMAX but in 2D only.
