The Transformers Controversy

I guess I don’t have to explain how fantastic the transformers Movie was. Tickets were practically sold out within the first week it was released here. My friend called on Tuesday before it was released (Thurs if im not mistaken) and there were already no tickets. In the US, its already collecting $155,405,412 (as of 11 July 7.00am).

U know that shot in transformers where all the battleships are lined up. This shot..

Doesnt that look rather familiar?

Compare that to this shot from Pearl Harbour (yes! Michael Bay’s other movie).

Looks the same doesnt it?

Read more on the controversy here. As for me, Im planning to go watch it for the 2nd time in the IMAX teather. Who’s with me?

    Apa pun… Citer dia memang best gilEr tahap dewa. Memang aku pun nak tengok lagi. Tapi apa beza tengok citer tak 3D kat iMAX dengan panggung biasa?

    @Aviator
    Apparently the pearl harbour shot was edited to remove the antenna and what not to make it look more simple and in tune with the WW2 era
