Probably was discussed several times already, but
The best scene in the whole movie was
The whole arrival scene of the Autobots. Just as awesome as the president speech in Armageddon. Pure Bay moments. Especially the "truck comes through fog" with the great score and great Bay camera angles was breathtaking. Almost cried so beautiful it was. Goosebumps all over the place.
Two of the other best scenes were when the Autobots were driving to the city... on that highway. Fucking awesome and breathtaking angles and photography. And at the beginning the start of the attack of the humans on that Scorpion thing with that great score again.
The only thing I wished could have been better and that's with all Bay films. DO THOSE SCENES LONGER. I'm not talking about the fast editing. That's great. Just let me see those fast edited scenes longer, you know... I could watch a movie just with those three scenes mentioned on loop for 3 hours.
It's funny because I always say that after each Bay movie. Only Bay has those great looking scenes in a movie and they're still too short. Damn it!
Bay, make more and longer Bay scenes please!!!
To be honest I have to say I'm still no Transformers fan although as I said previously, it was the biggest and best action Hollywood blockbuster in movie history.
But as you can see the best scenes were the "normal" scenes with great looking cars and stuff. I still don't like robots that much. So the best Bay project for me would be Transformers without the robots just with great looking cars, camera angles, stars etc. ehehee. Well, ok you have to have that great looking robot end fight, so some robots can be in there
Now to the bad scenes, mainly visual-wise (anything else doesn't really matter in a Bay movie anyway). Although or exactly because Transformers had some of the best looking scenes in a Bay and any movie ever it also had the worst scenes in a Bay movie so far. It doesn't really matter when watching the movie, but still..
As discussed in some other thread, there is nothing worse than a picture which looks "digital". I don't know on what Transformers was filmed, if it was filmed on digital cameras entirely or what. At least it looked great like film for the most part.
But there were those "digital looking" shots which were just awful. I can't remember all of them, but the worst was of course the one where the blonde hot chick (with Australian accent) run at some point at night? (can't remember exactly). It looked so bad amateurish Mini-DV like, just like in Blair witch or Open water e.g.
And some of the other shots at night of course. Those looked so digital it sucked as hell. They just didn't fit AT ALL with your usual Bay visual quality.
Oh and the ship in ice scenes with Shia's father looked very fake too unfortunately..
So yeah. I hope there won't be any of those in the next movie (although probably will) and there will be more and longer awesome looking car scenes instead of robots.. but ok, that's just me I know
What are the best and worst (visual) scenes for you?
PS: I also didn't like the seamless transformations of the cars/robots because there should have been gaps between their different "parts" or something when they transform back to car form . And the reason I might be so nitpicking is that I just expect perfection visual-wise in a Bay movie. It's still the best looking movie ever (by best i mean most beautiful like a commercial imagery) of course.
