Hollywood placing 3D faith in ‘Transformers’ - is it the right move?.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2011/07/6hUqMe.jpg[/newsimage]Entertainment industry analysts came up with a phrase that explained flagging 2011 ticket sales: the "post-Avatar effect." Some blame can rightfully be leveled against James Cameron's blockbuster - its massive success doesn't happen in the industry every week, and an 8% drop-off in domestic 3D ticket sales since 2010 lends credence to a 3D bar set very high by the film. Indeed, future tries at hurdling that bar were attempted by filmmakers who possibly forgot to put on the glasses required to properly see it in the first place. With 3D films increasingly under scrutiny by experts who clamor that the trend is headed towards a crash, the latest response has been to place all bets on "Transformers: Dark of the Moon."

Seems like it cleaned up at the box office, it set records for 5 day gross.

As much as it’s doesn’t have a great story, plot development, great dialog or much character development either, it was quite the spectacular 3D experience. Insane never before seen action that only michael bay can pull off.
It was good summer action / sfx fun and I had a blast with it.

Samlar it’s playing in 2D too if you have issues with the 3D.
