yea the movie and effects was really amazing. I even glued a transformers head on my steering wheel which looks kinda stupid but oh well.

some interesting facts I found was that it took ilm 38 hours to render each frame of the transformer shots. they say its the second longest time ilm took to render a frame after the lord of the rings battle renders. I also read that ironhad's cannon is 1 million faces alone. It's amazing how they manage to get perfect animations and lighting with such overwhelming scenes. I mean when I'm doing one I always like to do a full render for everything I change.

I've been to see it tonight and the effects are definitely very good
Pretty much a typical summer action blockbuster that is cool - wonder how much they will make out of the merchandising alone
Roll on the next one
