    The way I see it, the guy almost invented/perfected those kinds of shots, even if not everyone likes em. They're like Kubrick's deep focus, or something. :D

    Sounds rocking, the news about Megs getting an Earth form after-all is great, can we assume we'll get at least 2 big versions, pre-Earth and Earthen?
    I cannot wait, July cant come fast enough.

    Good article

    Whoever wrote that must've been ghosting the boards. Because judging by some of his words he's certainly got a feel for the "fandom drama" regarding the movie ;) 

    And I LOL'ed at the term "Geek Rage" :lol 

    But it's always good when you can tell someone's been doing their research before writting an article:) 

    And to me DiBonventura's reasoning behind the screen time of TFs is reasonable. It must be expensive animating these things for a 100+ minute movie. Heck Beast Wars cut stuff out for cost and that was just a 30 min TV show

    And you should. It's not the first time we get this tidbit, and people have been suspecting he's actually talking about Starscream and his Raptor alt mode and mixing things up, since they were indeed given limited access to some Raptors for the movie, but apparently nobody, even the military nuts, has ever heard of a project called Razor. The fact that the design/toys leaks point to an alien jet doesn't help either.

    That little blurb about maybe including the original theme sounds promising.

    "...Optimus Prime comes in, you know... not too late. But late enough where we can afford him."

    Wow. Is this going to be the Blair Witch Project of Transformers where we have to use our imaginations for 90% of the film??? I know it will be for Megs as he will prolly come in just before the credits and die like a bitch.
