    Well if they're counting every little ad on the Wreckers on top of them being NASCARs on top of them being a toy commercial then of course DotM would've had the most product placements.

    I have no problem with product placement. I have a problem with what people used to think it was going to become that it never ended up turning into...

    Instead we simply get to see the characters using the same stuff a lot of us do. If someone is using a laptop, what are the odds it's an Apple or a Dell? Pretty darn good. Seems like the studios have done a good job of using it for "realism". Yes, even in the case of Leadfoot it was realistic'ish.

    The part that jumped out at me was when the government woman stopped to change into a pair of Nike trainers for no apparent reason...:crazy:

    Because walking in heels is a pain to begin with, but walking up metal grate stairs and ladders (to speak eye-to-eye with giant robits) is impossible?
