Transformers - The Movie

Michael Bay, the director of Pearl Harbour, Armageddon, and Bad Boys 2!! is making The Transformers Movie.

Early word has it that it is going to be a lighter, family movie. With references to dogs pissing on Optimus Primes leg, and Transformers trying to hide in gardens from the parents of the teenage helper; the signs do not sound good!

But then the first trailer came out, then these stills. Bloody Hell! It looks good!

Apparently these SFX for the most complicated CGI ever put on camera, with a each virtual Transformer having over a thousand moving parts that the computers match perfectly, and that each frame of film takes 38 hours to render through the super-computers they use! Every penny of Bays $220 budget seems to be up there on the screen

I dont know how it will turn out storywise, but it certainly looks like it will look good. I may have to check it out on the big screen. I will then have to watch an Italian black and white masterpiece to cleanse my pallet, and possibly my soul.
