    I like 3D, and so naturally I digged it.
    Has it changed anyone's mind about 3D movies?

    I didn't watch it in 3D, because the movie looks darker with 3D glasses and also because most movies nowadays have only like 5 scenes in 3D which is a waste of money, and I thought DOTM may be like that.

    Best I've ever seen. There was one part of the movie that I thought some asswipe in front of me was standing up and blocking my view, but 4 seconds later I realized it was just Sam Witwicky with his back to the camera. If that ain't immersion, I don't know what is.

    I've seen it 5 times... twice in 3D/IMAX, once in 3D, and twice in standard. In all honesty, there are only a few parts where the 3D actually makes a difference: the opening sequence on Cybertron and anytime there was a floating object (e.g. the pillars on the Ark) or flying fire, sparks, and ash particles during a battle sequence.

    I loved DOTM in 3D. Did it change my mind about 3D in general? Nope. I still think all other 3D is awful because it's treated like a gimmick to rake in a few extra bucks and looks like it. No more 3D for me unless it's done the way Cameron and Bay did it.

    Say anything you want about the actual quality of the film, but you can’t really fault the 3D.

    i only really noticed the 3D right at the beginning [the whole astronaut prologue and stuff] and at the end here and there midst the final battle

    the 3D at the beginning was especially cool to me. Even though they were shots of just dudes standing at desks and stuff the illusion of perspective and depth of field was really great!

    Other than that, i'm not honestly a real big 3D fan. Just not that impressed really

    If you're referring to the scene where he talks with Optimus at the Xantium, then I totally agree with you. I had the same reaction, I turned to my friend and remarked on the apparent audience member getting up, and she just looked at me and went "you know that's Sam, right?" at which point I promptly shut up and slumped down in my seat out of embarrassment

    I loved it. So immersive, it really brought me into the film, if that makes sense. It was 3D with depth and layers, not just random things popping out at you for shits n giggles (ala Spy Kids 3).

    I Loved the 3D it was spectacular! :rock 
    I saw it 4 times in IMAX 3D, it
    wasn't dark at all and it really brought
    me into the screen, the Last time I saw DOTM
    it wasn't in 3D and I Noticed a Big Difference
    Thats when I know the 3D is good because I
    Missed it when I saw it Without it :thumbs2:

    The 3D was amazing and very well done in this movie. It still doesn't mean that I love 3D, just that it was very well done for DOTM and it really added to the movie's appeal. There's still movies that have terrible converted 3D and some movies that don't even need it but it's there as a gimmick.

    The same thing happened to me with this and other scenes... in the Chicago sometimes a paper flew across the shot, and I moved my head aside to "see better" as if a real paper had flown in front of me.

    Amazing.

    It proved that 3D is good when it's done right. And Bay sure as Hell did it right. Let that be a lesson that filming in 3D is much better then post-conversion.
