I just saw it in 2d, I haven't jumped on the 3d bandwagon yet. But from what I have heard, if you are going to go the 3d route, might as well go for the best 3d available(imax).
Very similar thinking. I would pay to see it in imax 3d again. I know when it comes out on bluray its going to be played a lot.

I just got back from seeing it and though I was enjoying it, I kept saying to myself, this would be so much more fun if I had paid the extra bucks for IMAX. Something about the way it was filmed didn't translate as well in 2D

My minor complaints are, the last 20 or so minutes was like watching the last 20 or so minutes of the first two movies, nothing really new, very interchangable, the family wasn't as entertaining as they usually were, something about them seemed really different. the parents usually have me laughing my sides off, I found them to be misplaced and a bit of a bore this time around. Major complaint, the lovey dovy boy loves girl stuff makes me want to barf. Even so, I prefered the relationship he had with the other gal, it was more believable than this new one. Other than those things, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.

I think the the 3rd movie was better than the second. Lots of Star-trek references lol
3D is repulsive cinema.

I enjoyed it, and thought it was better than the 2nd (who didn't?) and is on par or even better than the first.

What made it better was the fact that it wAS MORE ABOUT THE Autobots and Decepticons than it was about the humans, which made it better.


SFX was great. Saw it in IMAX 3d (well worth the money).

Love that they even got Buzz Aldrin in it. I thought that was a nice touch.

Very much agree, I mostly enjoy, SUPRISE!, seeing the bots transform, blow stuff up, knock each other around, etc

Those of you that saw the movie, enjoy this kind of nonsense for what it is, I do appreciate your contributions in answering my questions. Obviously a movie about big robotic talking metal thingies, is something you go to see for dumb fun, just like going to an amusement park, it's a fun ride, nothing more. I hope people don't go to be enlightened. I realize you have to turn to giant blue people for enlightenment.

I'm saving my next babysitter night for Horrible Bosses. The first Transformers was entertaining, now it's just tired variations on the same theme. The effects are, of course, astonishing. But to call it a "film" is a stretch.

Didn't enjoy the "slang" speaking bots in part 2. Not getting another dime of mine.

Unfortunately I'm not that intelligent as to comprehend the sarcasm in your reply. How dare people go to the movies to simply be entertained. I loved it- next stop, the smurfs and muppet movie.
