    Okay...the scene where Maggie is starting to realize that the computer virus is intelligent, adaptable, she's got this line where she's like,

    "You've got to look beyond Fourier Transfers and signal analysis..." and etc.

    Wait, did she just say transfers? It's Fourier Transforms - you take apart a signal and look at its component parts by using a Fourier transformation.

    God, I'm a nerd. :rolleyes:

    I thought so too, but I went back and I listened again...she says stuff ending in "om" or "orm" differently. I think it's a flubbed line. Ah well - throw it on the pile of little film errors in the movie. :lol

    Is that what she's saying? Ugh. I thought she was saying something like "Fury Age Transfers".

    they probably just thought it sounded silly having her say "transforms" when referring to signals in a movie called Transformers referring to giant robots.

    Yeah, I thought that's what she was supposed to say and just figured her accent screwed her up.

    She says "transfer" - I believe you can refer to a Fourier Transform as a transfer it's just extremely uncommon to do so. I imagine that made her say "transfer" as they wanted to avoid using the word transform too much.

    Anyway, that whole scene (and the entire hacker subplot) was completely cringe worthy.

    This is what I'm thinking.

    Though I think the subplot is nessesary (showing that the Goverment has acknowledged the alien invasion and is doing stuff) I agree, way too much time spent on it.

    I thought it was just a Fourier analysis(just took a acoustics class) though, or is this just a different way of saying the same thing ?

    2nded. I just spent the whole time that Maggie was making these "discoveries" and "inspirations" going "Really? I mean, c'mon...really?" :rolleyes2

    I agree the subplot was necessary but firstly, way too much time on it, secondly, a drop-dead gorgeous chick is also one of the world's most talented signal analysts? Oh come on. Thirdly, Glen.

    Just one okay-looking guy or girl to be the signal analyst, interacting with Voight aka Keller.
