Finishing up the character dev course last night - seemed appropriate to charge off and see ILM weave their magic in Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen. I really enjoyed it, you have to go in with the right mindset of course, if you go in expecting a deep psychological drama with heart rending perfomances, then it wouldnt be Transformers. Bay and the team however weave together the logic of giant transforming robots slugging it out across the globe and the bog screen in a truly exciting visual treat. It is like seeing the games we played with the toys brought to life on the screen - those games were all about peril, battles, explosions and heroes - Bay brings us this in spades - SUPER.

The complexity of the CG work on display from ILM is nothing short of staggering. Check out Michael Bay's site/blog for plenty of coverage of the film including some cool stats on the rendering of the film. Check out the TransformersLive blog as well.
Trailer (check here for more vid fun):
The soundtrack by Steve Jablonsky is in tune with the first film and together make for cool combo together in the midst of my iTunes stack.

Trailers for 2012, Harry Potter and G.I. Joe were amazing to see as well - drool.
