News Post: Michael Bay Talks About Transformers: Dark Of The Moon 3D
I agree with him. Its why I have been apprehensive about 3d....
Bay is one smart guy.
agread some movies should be 3d and some shouldnt even try i hate it when its forced...
he is already making excuses. HAHAHAHA
I agree it Michael Bay. Clash of the Titans still leaves a bad taste in peoples mouth.
oh wow.. Bay said something that I actually agree with. My opinion of the man went up a notch. 3D... who knew he'd actually be smart about something...
Regardless if one finds Bay a bad director or not, the man makes alot of good points and really knows whats he's talking about when it comes to this stuff. I fully agree 100%
I've still yet to see a 3D movie. Transformers won't break that trend. I always choose the regular showings. It's a gimmick. The whole point of the medium is that your eye is already fooled into thinking it's seeing a 3D image on a 2D screen. I like to watch films when I want to watch films and go to the amusement park when I want to go to the amusement park.
/old man rant
I've only seen two... Avatar and Tron: Legacy. Bay is completely accurate: if a 3D movie is shot correctly, the results are amazing. Avatar was unlike anything I've ever seen, and Tron 2 was good, they just didn't do enough with the 3D.
I have no doubt Transformers 3 is going to feature visuals that will blow us away.
I Saw Tron in 2-D and I will see this in 2-D
I really think it's a gimmick and I don't like it at all. I make it a point to catch normal showings of movies anymore.
He's right. 3D needs to be properly planned out for a movie, and not tacked on afterwards. It should enhance the experience.
The only excuse I see here is you grabbing any old excuse to Bay bash.
Not saying that I don't trust his sincerity in the matter—I do—but, one must wonder if he’ll be reversing his stance in the coming days—I can’t remember exactly what it was, but I remember him trashing something only to do a 180 a day or two later.
I don't think you get what he's saying. He saying that the way he did it is the way it should be done and some movies that want to do it differently should forget about it all together.
I don't think twichy cares; he/she/it is running on pure, unreasonable hate for Michael Bay. Logic and reason don't work on people who aren't rational. If you try to be logical with an irrational person, what you are saying will just go in one ear and out the other.
As for what Michael Bay is saying, he makes perfect sense; given the amount of time, effort, and money needed to do 3D right, he is correct in saying that it needs to be planned out.
Who is this guy, and what's he done with Michael Bay? Let's replace "3-D" with other terms:
"The short answer is we did too much with CGI that wasn't ready for prime time," says director Michael Bay, whose Transformers: Dark of the Moon was shot digitally, in CGI and on traditional 35mm film.
"Studios are turning everything they can into CGI without considering whether it should be done at all," he says. "We're already wearing the experience out."
"The short answer is we did too much with random explosions that wasn't ready for prime time," says director Michael Bay, whose Transformers: Dark of the Moon was shot digitally, in random explosions and on traditional 35mm film.
"Studios are turning everything they can into random explosions without considering whether it should be done at all," he says. "We're already wearing the experience out."
Wow Bay said something and I was not facepalming before it was over, bravo old chap, bravo!
I totally agree that 3D in films is half-assed and it even hurts the 2D version, the visuals in the 4th resident evil sucked, granted never saw the 3D to compare it to but the way scenes were choreographed for the 3D made it look like a rampaging mess.
Some of the scenes in Tron:Legacy were really good, but some not so much.
The Thor trailer in 3D was nutz though seeing Colston and Thor's whole faces jetting out of the screen was just weird lol Oh that and the trailer for Rio had some really great 3D though. Not sure I was a Big fan of the flying drool in the Green Hornet though
