    I beat you by 15 minutes, but as long as people see the article, I don't care.

    For as much as bay is lauded for the money he saves on the set, he wastes an egregious amount of money on CGI. All of that for 2 seconds....all on a character that was inconsequential to the movie as a whole. I'd love to know how much money was blown on Devastator.

    The stupid thing is..I saw this in the theatre and I thought Alice's transformation looked very fake, opposed to all the other robots. Now, most of the problem I think was with the full body shot, but I couldn't help but think it as well in the face close up.

    I think most of it has to do with the squirmy tentacles that pop out of her jaw..maybe it's not so much that it looks fake, but just plain weird..I dunno.

    Insane to see how much last-minute work goes into such a minor portion of the movie!

    Even though the character was kind of pointless, that was one of the best effects I've ever seen in a movie. I was wondering how the did it.

    Movie forum.
    Really, I don't care who reads what thread as long as people get to see the article.

    Your title is better fitting anyway.
