I just came back from watching the last Transformer movie in 3-D. I wont comment on the 3-D technical aspects of the movie, only in what I liked...and it was seeing the Milwaukee art museum in 3-D!

I remember taking my first 3-D pictures there on the summer of 2006. I used 2 Nikon FM2 cameras side by side and the stereo slides came out very beautiful! I also did my first Quinceanera shots in 3-D there as well. Its the first time that I see that museum in a movie.

I also liked to see Chicago in 3-D. For some reason most movies when filming Chicago don't show the Willis tower (Sears tower before) I think because they charge for it. And in this movie you can see it...in 3-D! Great.

Now that I think it better, it was the summer of 2005 when I took my first 3-D pictures there in Milwaukee. My wife was my model and she was pregnant with David our first son who was born on February of 06.

She was holding those cardboard signs indicating different stereo bases, distances of her vs the camera, lens apertures and even flash settings. It was tiresome for her, but I always like to test everything!

In the summer of 2006 is when I went to see my second 3-D movie, Monster House, I had to go all the way to Chicago too see it in 3-D. My first 3-D movie was Jaws 3-D in 1983. That was in LA.

I refused to hand over a huge wad of cash to watch this in 3D. After seeing it in 2D I'm glad I didn't bite.

I didn't pay a lot of cash either, $5 bucks (including the 3-D glasses)...;-)

I did hear that the 3D in this movie was very well done. Just a pity that the directing and editing was sub par.

Hi Brian:

Well, the 3-D effect in some scenes was practically none...it was like a regular 2-D movie!

There was also a lot of conversion from 2-D to 3-D according to the Wikipedia page of the movie.

It seems that the producers did not like the big 3-D rigs for certain scenes.

I am not a big fan of such movies, I just went to watch it because I read about the fillmimg in Wisconsin and Chicago, and I was curious to see them in 3-D.

Really, I thought it was shot natively in 3D. I think 2D was quite enough for me to be honest.

It's funny how wikipedia explain the plot a lot better than Bay did in the actual movie.

I was thinking the same thing. The synopsis seemed so clear when I read it on WP yet I could not make heads nor tails of the film, at least the first hour or so.

Watched it again, this time at home and I did find it more enjoyable this time. Still a cluster**(obscenity removed)** at the beginning though.

I have 7 3D movies in my Blu-ray collection, but have no plans to upgrade to a 3D projector any time soon. Will see how things pan out over the coming 12 months or so.

I think the tide has turned for 3D theatrically. I used to hear the line "this movie is also available in 2D" Whereas now I hear "This movie is also available in 3D in selected cinemas" Not a huge difference in wording, but it clearly states that 2D has priority. Good news me thinks.

Studios should be pushing IMAX for blockbusters and not gimmicky 3D, especially Pseudo 3D.
