TF3: an overdue review

I’m just sorting through some old Moleskines (making sure that I’ve copied up all the blog posts that I’ve made in them etc before I crack on with the new one) and I stumbled upon this short review of Transformers 3 – aka Dark of the Moon.

It’s old, I know. But I fancied sharing it.

TF3: Moleskine Review

In short: the best Transformers film to date*
*Not exactly a hard thing

High points

  • 1960s!
  • OMFG! BEST TRANSFORMING SCENE… EVER!
  • EPIC BATTLES
  • SENTINEL PRIME!

Low points

  • THE END IS HORRIFIC
  • WHY IS MEGATRON IN A SCARF?
  • MEGATRON / NEW GF SCENE OF FAIL

Going to the NYC premiere was fun (as was the Michael Bay screening in Miami), but the film – although featuring several rather spectacular set pieces – was not awesome. Figured the best way to illustrate this was through the above ‘interest curve’ idea that I nicked borrowed from Total Film.

S’all I got.

  1. Transformers 3 was filmed mostly in Chicago, and when you come here later this year I will have to show you some of the scene locations, including my back alley! It was interesting watching the filming as it was going on.
