There were tons of parts when I laughed and no one else did. Like when Ralphie blew a bubble at the dome and it hit him in the face. "AHHH BLOWBACK!!"

Other people didn't laugh at that?

Not the point at all. Transformers has immense effects. Whether the movie is decent or not (I'm not seeing it until Wednesday, so can't yet comment). So it benefits from the big screen experience. There's nothing about Simpsons that requires the big screen at all.

Yeah, but the rest didn't. That's what made it a bit a of let down for me. The bar was set so high in the first 30 that it faultered after that.

Well I see what you mean, I guess I should've said "the type of movie thats better with alot of other people".

And not to spoil it for you, but the effects in Transformers don't mean jack cause the shitty camerawork doesn't let you see anything

That's why I hate most of those new action movies. "We spent $500 million on special effects, but you won't be able to tell because it was filmed by a guy having a seizure to make it look more realistic." Everything's edited at a speed that would put Steve Harris to shame, and shots don't last more than a fraction of a second.

Besides all that, the special fx for Transformers are just stupid. It takes OPtimus Prime like 8 minutes to transform form truck to robot, with all sorts of microscopic spinning parts. And then at the end he's still got those truck fenders for pecs. Huh? Every inch of your body is spinning around ridiculously for the past 8 minutes but somehow you can't get rid of those truck fenders?

I think it's worth seeing on the big screen. But really, by the logic in this thread, what is worth seeing on the big screen except for effects laden robot orgies?

I caught The Simpsons midnight showing and saw it again on Saturday with some other friends. Hilarious both times
