    Pure awesomeness. This really shows that Michael is a genius when it comes to action sequences. His work on DOTM will be very hard to surpass in the next few years.
    The academy has to blind if they don't give these guys the Oscar for Best VFX. I believe DOTM will win.

    I wonder how the other movies will manage to get 10 min. of VFX material. It'll be hard.

    P.S. Nelson why are the blacks so black in the video? Is it from the compression?

    So do the members see it in 3D and are they able to consider that when voting?

    I was also wondering if this is the same reel they are sent for the sound awards.

    I cannot think any way that another Transformers Live Action Movie Series can top this. Haters can hate all they want and it may not win awards... but to me, this is the real deal.

    Good Luck DOTM! You deserve to win this.

    The special effects in the first Transformers was far better of anything else that had been done at that time. The Academy showed their true colors when they chose the Golden Compass over it. I wouldn't get my hopes up about DOTM.

    The VFX that ILM and DD managed to pull off in this movie is nothing short of stunning. The moon stuff and the wingsuit scene by DD must of been incredibly hard to pull off with all the distortions in the camera. And the amount of destruction detail in the collapsing glass skyscraper by ILM is breathtaking.

    And nelson, any chance you can get hold of the ILM VFX Transformers reel in good quality? It was used for siggraph and such.

    It's bad enough already that these scenes are in this video bro, some people are crazy enough and/or uninterested to see a whole movie and are satisfied enough by watching this and say "ok! I've seen this movie" with a laugh (like my dad does with some movies Fast Forwarding straight to the action, but most of the time he knows what movies are good and watches them in full length, only with certain movies..)

    Thanks for sharing Nelson.

    I didn't get my hopes up. Visual effects and sound don't get any better than this.
    Who's votes for these things anyways. Seems a trend every year for 2 to 3 films to win everything in every category. No different this year.
