I took my kids to see the flick Transformers 3 yesterday. I know some people hate the new film, but I thought it was good enough. I watched the film and didn’t notice the scene that Bay sampled from one of his previous films called The Island mostly because I have never heard of that flick. I guess Bay decided to cut some costs and reused a scene from a bridge in Transformers.
You can see in the photo above that the scene is identical and the only difference is the Transformer arm thing crunching the car rather than the spike in The Island. People are making a ruckus about the sampling. Personally, I don’t care if he samples himself as long as the sample fits in with the movie. You can see the films played side by side on YouTube below.
One things that I did notice that was odd was the opening scenes of the flick bothered my eyes. The 3D effects had my eyes trying to decide where to focus. I have never had a 3D movie do that to me before and I watch every movie that comes out in the 3D format when possible. I’m not sure if it was the way the movie was filmed or what.
