    Bassed on the new plot info released today, alot of people are saying that DOTM will be alot like cloverfeild when it comes to the chicago scene. Seeing as how Sam and the crew only head in to the city to save Carly I dont think that that is the main reason for them going into the city. Theyre part of the atobot team so they should be there for the final battle , well what i assume is the final battle, and that the Carly thing will just be another thing on top of everything else.

    I'm surprised you guys didn't think Battle L.A.

    I mean the army fighting evil invasive robot aliens come on.

    He knows, he's saying he's surprised that you thought Cloverfield over Battle: Los Angeles.

    I'd say it will be more like Black Hawk Down, especially as even Bay thinks it will be similar.

    Me neither, hah!

    Never saw it, but I don't think he's thinking it'll be "similar" - but rather I'm sure he's only going with the general premise of: get in, get our friendlies the hell out.

    It's kind of the Hollywood formula these days to make movies more like other films than taking a big risk with being original so I'm sure we will see plenty of bits that remind us of other films.

    Reading that plot detail did make me think of Cloverfield. Which is kind of funny considering people some times say that Bay's camera work jumps around only slightly less than Cloverfield so maybe Bay put it in as friendly jab at himself.

    This. i bet we're gonna get a HUGE arguement between Lennox, Epps, and Sam about going into the city because of how dangerous(and probably stupid) the idea is before sam convinces them to do it. ...next thing you know there's death everywhere:rip

    I thought so too. Everyone kept telling me that it was a great movie, and when I bought it, I ended up doing laundry while it was on. I couldn't stay interested in it.

    I just it's kind of like Cloverfield. A group of folk go through a bunch of crazy city shit to save some chick.

    But this has giant robots!

    Really? I thought it was awesome. Camera shaking constantly was ok I guess, but the fact that the monster ended up wining was a plus.
