Ok, bare with me here. The Lucas thread got me thinking, the SFX driven scenes in TF to me seemed to go by WAY too quick. I'm not trying to trash the guys at ILM at all here, but I don't quite understand where the $200,000,000 budget went. Look at a movie like Episode III and there are entire WORLDS done in CGI, not just stormtroopers or dewbacks....pretty much everything on screen was computer generated. They lasted longer and we got a chance to take in what was on the screen. Pixar movies are ENTIRELY CG. Wall-E's budget was $180,000,000....$20,000,000 short of ROTF, and when the movie comes out we see scenes that aren't even fully rendered. The scene in Shanghai where the twins fall apart as the ice cream truck has horrible framerate, it looked like claymation. What did they spend all of this time and money doing in comparison to these other movies? Rendering Devastator's balls?
