Is it me, or does Megan Fox seem totally disgusted by this kid?

Just saw it today.  I enjoyed it.  Between the two movies there isn't a shred of a coherent plot, but I laughed a few times, got choked up a few times and its probably the "biggest" movie I've ever seen.  For whatever that's worth.  I guess as Micheal Bay would say........."It's awesome!"

I tend to find ways of liking films that other nerds hate on like Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and the first Transformers.  I don't take them that seriously and try to have fun, and it works.

That didn't work this time.  While the robot battles were cool, it doesn't excuse the absolutely poor and stupid filmmaking surrounding the rest of the film.  Even when the robots were talking, I wanted to hit the mute button.  Mudflap and Skids are the new Jar Jar Binks.

Thank goodness I still have a new Harry Potter movie to look forward to this summer.

More than the SPX I'm really interested in the development of the Michella character and also the exploration of the burgeoning relationship between her and Sam.  Will the film deliver on that level and quench this viewers thirst for a director who's willing to tackle all the complications of romance at that age?

My sister and I are seeing it tonight.  Although we cashed in a bunch of free Fandango points or whatever, so at least we're not paying to see it. ;D

I really liked it a lot...great Transformer action. One critisism; it's too long. They could have cut out at least a half hour of fluff in the middle. That being said, a must see on the big screen...excellent FX.

I tried to see the midnight show and it was sold out.  So, I went and saw it tonight.  Very entertaining.  A lot of action and special FX.  This is not an Oscar kind of movie but who cares  ;D  2 1/2 hours of non stop action and Fox  :o :o :o  Now I need to track down the toys

Haven't seen it.  But then I have been mindful of the fact that there really has not been the big promotional push for this movie that the first Transformers got.  It's really not that high on my list of things to see.  And a big part of that has to do with Michael Bay's filmmaking style.  He thinks that blurry, hyper kinetic action is something that audiences want to see.  Personally I find that annoying.

And this whole movie brings to light something that even Steven Spielberg has been talking about.  That being that there are TOO many movies that are designed to be blockbusters.  It used to be that a movie might have a higher budget, but it was the audiences that really decided what was a blockbuster and what was not.  Now, it seems that the studios will build their year around a single movie that is DESIGNED to be a blockbuster.  The effects gags seem to be planned before the story is written.  The whole thing just seems very forced, and the stories seem to be suffering.

Bay said at some point that portions were made specifically for IMAX.  People who see it in IMAX will see a few seconds more of various robot battles.  I'm not sure if that would be shot for IMAX, since so much of that would have come from post-production special effects.

Even if it's being screened at an IMAX theater, it may very well not have been shot in IMAX.  At least not the whole movie.

Does the Loew's in Cherry Hill have a real IMAX or just that fake IMAX?

Its listed as a location on the IMAX website, so I imagine its real.  I know what you are talking about though, sometimes theaters try to sell their "Giant" screens as IMAX, like the theater at the King of Prussia mall.

I'm pretty sure it's a fake one, knowing the size of the real one I have near me at the Trop.

I try to avoid opening day since the nuisance quotient tends to be much higher than I can tolerate.  I'll definitely be checking this movie out though within the next few weeks.  I'm excited because I've heard that the movie is far more about the robots this time, since the studio felt comfortable with having it focus on them as opposed to Megan Fox's hynie and Shia Lebeaf's spit build up on his lower lip (although I'm positive they are both there to ample degrees)
