Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Three-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D / Blu-ray / DVD / Digital Copy)

  • Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon – Triple Play (Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital Copy) Blu-ray

A mysterious event from Earth’s past threatens to ignite a war so big that the Transformers alone will not be able to save the planet. Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and the Autobots must fight against the darkness to defend our world from the Decepticons’ all-consuming evil in the smash hit from director Michael Bay and executive producer Steven Spielberg. 3D Blu-Ray plus a DVD, Digital Copy and Ultra Violet. Over 3 hours of behind-the-scenes special features including: Full-length documentary: Above & Beyond Exploring Dark of the Moon, Follow the cast and crew around the world filming, See more of the amazing Wingmen, Deconstructing Chicago: Multi-Angle Sequences, See how Chicago was transformed into the movie’s biggest action set, A17Uncover how the epic falling building was shot, The Art of Cybertron – And much more!Talk about “transforming.” Michael Bay tested the patience of even the most devoted Transformers fan with the second installment of the franchise, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, but the hyperactive director bounces back in energetic form with number three, Transformers: Dark of the Moon. From the long opening sequence (a zany alternate-history reading of the NASA moon program, complete with cameos by John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon) through the predictably extended action climax, Bay is actually on his best behavior. Sure, his taste is as vulgar as ever (is introducing your leading lady via a lingering butt shot part of the director’s personal signature?), but the story line is streamlined and the action is coherent: the constant chop-chop of the fighting sequences in Revenge is gone, replaced by a long-take approach that actually shows us who’s fighting who. Plus, it’s hard to resist a tilting skyscraper that allows the protagonists to slide down its glassy exterior. I know, right?

Shia LaBeouf returns, armed with a new and improbably bodacious girlfriend (Rosie Huntington-Whiteley); although initially unemployed, he’s drawn back into protecting the planet from giant outer-space robots, as the Decepticons menace the Earth once again. John Turturro and Josh Duhamel return to help, and Frances McDormand and John Malkovich join the club. Let’s reduce critical expectations and say that if you’re going to make a dumb movie about mass destruction, this is the way to do it (and if that sounds like faint praise, compare the movie to its abysmal predecessor). Throw in Hangover funnyman Ken Jeong, computer nerd Alan Tudyk doing a German accent, and the voice of Leonard Nimoy as Sentinel Prime, and you’ve got yourself a three-ring circus of extremely spirited nonsense. Just how Michael Bay wants it. –Robert Horton

    PLEASE NOTE: This product review is for the 3D Blu-Ray… Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Three-Disc Combo: Blu-ray 3D/Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy)

    This is the way “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” was meant to be seen: in 3D! I saw this movie in 3D at the theater and I can tell you it was a great experience. The movie itself has some flaws, but the stereo image was simply amazing… say what you want about director Michael Bay, the man knows how to shoot action sequences! This is one of the most entertaining 3D movies to date, and is a no-brainer for anyone with a 3D TV.

    Not only is the picture quality top-notch, but the sound is great too. I recently watched an interview with sound mixer Greg P. Russell, and he said that the TF3 blu-ray sound mix was specifically tailored for home video release. Anyone who owns the previous blu-ray release would agree that the sound mix is incredible. This blu-ray will make a great demo when you show off your home theater system!

    Here is a detailed description of what is in this set:

    Disc 1: Feature Film — Blu-Ray 3D

    Disc 3: Special Features — Blu-Ray

    Additional Info:

    In summary, the difference between this set and the previous release, Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Two-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo + Digital Copy), is the addition of the 3D blu-ray and a bonus blu-ray with 4 hours of new special features.

    As long as MIchael Bay will see his fans as cavemen, this will not stop., October 1, 2011
    By 

    Sorry with my english for i am from Montréal.

    I still do not want to give up on Michael Bay. When i see him in interviews, underneath his condescending tone and his obvious self-love, i see an educated and intelligent man. I still have hope that he will mature eventually and direct a genuine great film. But right now, he is a teenager. Remember the speech about how Superman views society in “Kill Bill Vol 2″? If he disguises himself as Clark Kent, it is so that he won’t be recognize and he will simply pass off as a “normal” human being. And when you look at the characteristics of Clark Kent, well it just goes to show what Superman thinks of a “normal” human being. I think the same of Michael Bay and how he views the movie goers out there, especially teenagers. He obviously thinks that most of us are dumb, sexually depraved and uneducated. The way he films women, the way he portrays the adults, the things he makes them say and do, the “comedy” that he puts in there and that he thinks will make us laugh, all of this makes me think that Michael Bay simply sees his fans as cavemen. And by reading some of the comments here, well my God, he’s about right!

    It is not a question of putting your brain to neutral in order to enjoy a good old “pop corn” movie. Not all “pop corn” movies are good. “Transformers 3″ is a bad movie. Just like the second one. Probably even more. The characters are stupid. The dialog is corny. The intentions are childish. And we just don’t care about anything. And why, oh why, do incredible and sexy women fall so much in love with Sam? It is so obvious that Bay was a shy and rejected teenager and that he couldn’t get… well, nevermind. I don’t know how Michael Bay and his team can watch a movie like that at a premiere knowing that other people will witness such a disgraceful work of art. How can they be proud of that?

    God knows i enjoy all sort of films. Pop corn movies and art films. I loved the first “Transformers”. But it is clear to me now that Steven Spielberg had more of a word to say in the first one.

    And when i hear people calling this third film “Excellent” or “Perfect”… it’s beyond me.

    The first part of the film, the prologue that is, when it deals with the missions on the Moon, well that part is truly fun. Those small parts are the ones that make me think that Bay will, one day, make a great “Pop Corn” movie. But the more i see him going and the more i hear him talk, i’m starting to think that he won’t be able to do it on his own, that he’ll need someone else to help him along the way, like Spielberg in the first “Transformers”.

    Again, i’m all for “Pop Corn” movies. I enjoy them. But the directors must respect the viewer’s intelligence. Michael Bay does not. He is clearly saying that you are dumb. And some of you are worshiping him.

    Well you get the movies you diserve.

    If you like any special features at all do not buy this version. They are doing the same thing as Avatar. This release gets a full price but absolutely zero special features. Not so much as a trailer. They will be putting out deluxe versions toward the end of the year including a 3D combo pack, blu ray combo pack & dvd. ALL will be packed & you will kick yourself for having to buy this a second time. Many people don’t care about features but if you do consider yourself forewarned. And it’s not like they’re giving you a cut on the price for a “movie only” release.
