Michael Bay says shut up, Transformers 3's 3D looks just fine
It's no surprise that the studio forced Michael Bay to change his tune on 3D to make the next installment in the hugely profitable TRANSFORMERS series to be a 20-30% more hugely profitable, but a recent report from IESB said the process has been painful and the effects "looks like shit."
Well enter Michael Bay to clean house on internet rumors, coming to the defense of the format he used to loathe.
"Wow, I read these morons on the internet who think they are in the know. “We have have problems with our 3D????” Really? Come into my edit room and I will show you beautiful 3D. There has never been a live action show that has pushed the boundaries of 3D like Transformers 3. We shot the entire movie with 3D cameras. I actually loved shooting in 3D. I will give full details of my process and why I liked 3D in the next week right before the Transformers announcement piece comes out on Tron and Narnia…"
To which he follows with:
"And don't watch this movie in 2D, we made it for 3D."
Sure, give me a 30% ticket price discount, and I'll do just that.
Simply put, I have not seen a good live action 3D movie since AVATAR, and that has caused me to boycott the format entirely. That is until I went to see JACKASS 3D and my theater didn't even have a 3D OPTION thus turning the $7 student price I was planning to pay into $14 to force me to watch Chris Pontius' dick wave around in 3D.
As for TRANSFORMERS? If any style of movie was made for that format, it's blockbuster action movies like this, but these it's hard to keep track of the action in these movies in two dimensions, and I assume a third one will probably cause some people to pass out from exhaustion trying to process it all.
