I know a friend (he is a massive TF fan) who is seeing it in a few hours at Sydney's IMAX, but I'm gonna see it sometime tomorrow most likely. Heard a few reviews, and what I heard from Julie White, when she was in Australia for a con a few weeks ago. Hopefully I'll pick a later session.

Re: Transformers: Dark of the Moon - Discuss, Grading, Reviews (SPOILE

It is a shame Megan Fox isn't in the movie. And as I said in the anticipation thread, Camilla Belle is one of the few people I can think of who could have replaced Megan Fox...



As for the other big draw - selection of autobots and decepticons - I've been mostly spoiler free, so I expect a few surprise appearances. What few names I have seen though haven't impressed me.

A good 2.5hr movie feels shorter than a crappy 90 min affair.

Shia LaBeouf returns as Sam Witwicky in "Transformers: Dark of the Moon." When a mysterious event from Earth's past erupts into the present day it threatens to bring a war to Earth so big that the Transformers alone will not be able to save us.

The movie comes out early on Tuesday night (6/28) with previews at 9PM. Hopefully, this is better than ROTF.
Ugh, that looks like an Asylum poster.

This movie I'm going to see just out of going to see a movie but I suspect it's going to give me a splitting headache.

I saw it last night. The first hour is exposition and plot, the last ninety minutes is like Saving Private Ryan's first half hour, but with giant robots beating the ever-living shit out of each other.

Ouch. I have to say, I've liked all the clips and footage that've been released so far, but the reviews are so dire I'm beginning to worry. His review here reminds me of what he said about Battle: LA, which I also disliked for the same reasons he did.

I fell asleep during the second movie's overly long, nonsensical, stupid climatic/ending battle sequence which consisted of explosions, crashes, and Shia shouting nonsensically. Oh, and Devastator t-bagging me.

"Transformers: Dark of the Moon" is a visually ugly film with an incoherent plot, wooden characters and inane dialog. It provided me with one of the more unpleasant experiences I've had at the movies.

The series exists to show gigantic and hideous robots hammering one another. So it does.
God bless Roger Ebert. These movies are worthless, unutterably stupid beyond redemption.

It doesn't really matter who the female is in these films; she's just there as T&A.

So if you already know what to expect, why even bother? It's probably just going to be even more nonsensical. Hopefully reeled back a little bit, but nonsensical nonetheless.
