Reel Facts & Opinions

FACT: With just a couple days to go before the third TRANSFORMERS film is released, series director Michael Bay has been calling upon the chief executives of major theatre chains to make sure his new film is played out with brighter projection so the (goddamn) 3D looks it’s best. The idea is that shoddy projection is one of the reasons fans have been opting for the 2D versions of films lately.

OPINION: Bay deserves props for wanting his film to look its best. Let’s face it; all moviegoers have experienced shitty film projection more than once in their film watching careers. Outside of that, Bay and his new pal James Cameron need to remember that a film needs to stand on its own, and not rely on the gimmick of the third dimension to carry it. It could be Bay is on to something; early screenings of the new TRANSFORMERS film have generated very positive feedback on the (goddamn) 3D, saying it even surpasses the execution of AVATAR’s third dimension.

FACT: The latest issue of EMPIRE magazine features a great new shot of Ian McKellen in his Gandalf the Grey garb, shot on the set of the now-filming THE HOBBIT

OPINION: Ian, you haven’t aged a day. The next 18 months are going to be one long wait.

What say you?
