Review: Transformers: Dark of the Moon 3D Blu-ray Limited Edition

I watched the 3D Blu-ray version of Transformers: Dark of the Moon over the weekend, and I can’t recommend it enough for those of you geeks who’ve adopted 3D at home technologies.  When I first heard that Bay wanted to take 5 months extra to produce the 3D version of Transformers 3 I was disappointed.  I wanted to see this spectacle on my 3D TV setup so bad that its absence during the August launch of the regular blu-ray left a bad taste in my mouth.  Let’s just say that now that I’ve watched it I’m thankful that Bayhem took the extra time to perfect the 3D blu-ray process, because it is a visual and auditory treat like none other.

EB 10 out of 10 Buddhas

If own a 3D TV and a capable blu-ray player you owe it to your senses to pick this film up in its 3D form.  Out of all of the 3D movies I’ve seen on my setup this one has been the best to date.  The extra care that Bay put into crafting the 3D version is clearly evident in the presentation of the film.  The effect is masterfully implemented, and when you combine it with the amazing surround sound mix, this film becomes one of the best home movie experiences to date.

Movies like TDotM are the reason why I wanted to have the third dimension in my home theater in the first place.  The depth that the effect provides is on par if not better than what you’d see in a movie theater, and the clarity of the picture can only be achieved with the Blu-ray format.  On top of the expertly crafted 3D effect this limited edition also boasts an amazing soundtrack that should only be heard on a 7.1 surround sound system.  There’s nothing better than watching robot on robot action in 3D accompanied by a top notch sound scape.  Bay may be an a*shole to work with, but he nailed the 3D process in this film, as well as it’s limited blu-ray release.

Action scenes really pay off in 3D with great surround sound

The 3D effect won’t make up for some of this film’s issues like length, or fight scenes that are so complex your eyes want to vomit, but it still warrants a purchase for your blossoming 3D home library.  If you absolutely can’t watch this movie in one sitting I recommend that you at least queue up the last hour of this movie, because it provides some of the best 3D at home imagery that I’ve ever seen.  Not to mention there’s some great action in general taking place during this time frame as well.  Just wait until you see Bumblebee punch a Deceptacon’s gut and then blow his robot brains out from within his chest cavity in 3D!

Without a doubt if you own a 3D TV you need to purchase Dark of the Moon’s 3D blu-ray release.  It’s well worth the price, and I promise you that it won’t suck.  This is the movie to show off to your hating a*s friends who made fun of you for buying a 3D TV in the first place. Pop this sucker in and show them why it sucks to be poor!  You’ve just found something to do this weekend…

Rosie in 3D? SOLD!
