On The Streets Of Chicago - Big Baysplosions And A Little Bumblebee!!

Merrick here...
Our man Highrise sent in a quick video of TRANSFORMERS 3 filming in Chicago.
One of my son's teenage friends is in Chicago. He chanced across the set and was allegedly routed by some "douchey" personnel. Too bad they didn't get video of that - could've been hilarious.

    That baby isn't crying because of the noise.

    He's crying because his dad said "It's ok" & the poor little fucker simply can't articulate yet, that a Michael Bay movie is never "ok".

  • July 21, 2010, 11:15 a.m. CST

    Let me get this straight...

    by Lemure_v2

    you're all wondering why there's so much bandwidth dedicated to TF3? Maybe its because SO many of you hating nerds are clicking on it, watching it, then slating it. You're creating demand. If everyone who hates Bay and his TF movies DIDN'T click on these links there would be less news on TF. And if I'm the one and only person looking forward to this, I don;t give a shit.

    The reason Bay gets a third try

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    The first 2 have made over a bilion dollars worldwide, usually when that happens your given a third try in the producers hopes that more money will come in. People can say Bay raped their childhoods but can you honestly say you don't know why he's back as director?

  • July 21, 2010, 11:26 a.m. CST

    Bay, The "Auteur"

    by @gape

    Again, I reiterate: this "auteur" and "director" has two Criterion releases. Shame on you, Criterion! Shame on you!

    Filming

    by jrummel

    You're absolutely right about the film crew being douchey. I work a couple blocks from this and it has added an extra half hour to my commute for the past two weeks because some pimply fanboy asshole volunteer always makes me take an eight block detour instead of walking the one block to my office. I can't wait for them to get the hell out of Chicago.

  • July 21, 2010, 11:28 a.m. CST

    everyone on this talkback will see this movie

    by RedBull_Werewolf

    maybe not opening weekend, but you all know you'll see transformers 3 when it comes out next year. Bay has you all by the balls and you love every minute of it

  • July 21, 2010, 11:34 a.m. CST

    RedBull

    by @gape

    Bay does NOT have me by the balls! The reviews were so bad for Transformers 2, I have yet to see it. I won't be seeing this abortion of a film, either -- in theaters, or blu-ray.

  • July 21, 2010, 11:37 a.m. CST

    The Problem with Bay

    by @gape

    These days, I refuse to watch anything that does not have at least some level of artistic merit. Films either (1) have to make me think (hey, imagine that!) or (2) provide a sensory experience, an immersive world, so to speak. Bay's films, unfortunately, convey neither of these qualities. Technically, he is sound, and he is gifted with special effects, but there is no imagination, and worse, no story to his films.

  • July 21, 2010, 11:48 a.m. CST

    Bumblebee is to Transformers...

    by treatment

    ...as C3PO/R2D2 is to Star Wars

  • July 21, 2010, 11:50 a.m. CST

    Why couldn't they replace Fox

    by Mr. Profit

    With someone like Odette Yustman? They look a lot a like and younger fans wouldn't notice a casting change. To give "Sam" a hot bitch faced sexy model as a new girlfriend (to replace the superhot girlfriend he already had) is less believable than alien robots who transform in to shiny concept cars that will never go into production.

  • July 21, 2010, 11:52 a.m. CST

    WOW

    by D o o d

    They should hire that guy, his camera work and story telling is way better than the finished result from Bay!

    by kevinwillis.net

    Glad to speak with you as well my friend!<P>Totally agreed on Copley, he was flat out awesome as Murdock. The entire cast, even Jackson did a good job. I just hope they greenlight a sequel, although I am not sure how likely that is considering that it probably is not going to break $100 million in the US....a shame people don't know a good movie when they see it, I guess they would just rather see Bay blowing up shit instead of good actors playing good characters doing it but better. I didn't care for Smokin Aces much, but Carnahan totally redeemed himself with The A Team, and he gets rewarded with mediocre box office, yet the public eats up Bay's movies....go figure.

    I do. I sit down to a Bay movie, unplug my brain, and get stupidly entertained for a couple of hours. That's all Bay's good for, it's all he's ever been good for, and I love him for it. I like some Argento and Herzog too. But for that sheer kick-back-and-enjoy factor, it's gotta be Bay. Fuck the haters!

    by rogueleader66

    Different writer this time, its someone called Ehren Kruger, who apparently wrote Arlington Road, which was a very well written film IMO...of course that means nothing when your working with Bay.<P>I also saw in the IMDB page that the new chick, Rosie whatever, is not a NEW g/f for Shia the beef, but is playing Megan Fox's part, that just makes it worse, replace a hot chick with little acting ability with a not as hot chick with NO acting experience at all and have her play the same character...stupid, flat out stupid.

    I wonder if Bay is bothered at all that he is seen basically as a joke. I can't imagine it bothers him that much when he's driving his dump trucks full of cash, to the bank. Still, a lot of his movies have little to no redeeming qualities. The only one I liked was The Rock.

    Ehren Kruger is spotty at best...

    by Mr. Profit

    Arlington Road and the 1sr Ring remake were decent. But this bastard wrote Scream 3 and The Skeleton Key... I have no faith that he actually wrote a coherent and engaging script. So far it seems like his scripts are made by whoever is directing them. Gore Verbinski's visual flair saved The Ring remake. Wes did his best with the bloodless and comedic Scream 3. And finally according to the writers of Transformers 2, Bay mangled their script. I expect him to do the same here.

    While I dislike most everything Michael Bay has ever touched, it has been really fun to watch them film this out of my window here in the Windy City.

    "douchey" personnel?

    by Logan_1973

    Shut up you fuck. You wouldn't be saying that if your friend's idiot son's life was saved from an explosion by the same guy. There's a reason why they close them off y'know.

    Being on unemployment means having no dick.

    by locke815

    No this isn't about Transformers 3. Nevertheless, gotta get it off my chest. Why are so many morons on here saying that wanting the "Lost" finale to have answers is akin to wanting to know that "Midichlorians" were behind The Force? First of all, Star Wars was not a mystery movie, it was an science fiction/action movie. The whole movie did not have characters saying "What is the mystery of the Force? Why can only Jedis use it? Where did it come from?" nor did plot points hinge on inconsistencies with the Force. In other words, no one asked for Midichlorians. However, "Lost" DID raise such mysteries. What is the island, what is the smoke monster, what are "the rules," why can't women get pregnant, etc. So it stands to reason that one would expect those questions be answered. If you're going to compare the "Lost" finale to Star Wars then the analogy should be that, after Darth Vader tells Luke that he is his father, it is never again mentioned by anyone, and the series concludes with never knowing how or why the father of the story's hero became the story's villain. That's all I have to say. Oh wait, one more thing... all you asshole talkbackers bragging about being on unemployment (which, at 30 months, is not unemployment but WELFARE), it's time that you show some goddamned respect to us taxpayers and stop bragging about being on it. Any man who is on unemployment HAS NO PENIS and EVERYONE KNOWS THAT. You're just like the Harley Drivers in that South Park episode where everyone is calling them "fags" but they think they're cool because their motorcycles are loud. You might think you are cool, but every woman in your life knows that you have no dick, and it's just important to me that you know that.

    Attention Bay Haters

    by Horned One

    The only people who don't like the Transformer movies are the haters on this site and a few sad critics. I loved both movies and I will definitely see number three. Bay took a crappy old cartoon and made something great, so get over it. If I win the lottery, I will personally finance a 4th Transformer movie. It ain't Shakespeare, but it's a lot of fun. You know this to be true. The more you deny it, the more you prove your love for these films.

    You are an idiot. I have liked other Bay movies quite a bit, but I disliked Transformers. There was nothing really good to say about it... it was just soulless and not even exciting as a Bay action film. I was quite let down by it. Your viewpoint is simplistic, as is your understanding of the subtleties of what makes a film work or not. If explosions alone make you happy, well, fine. But don't pretend you know anything about movies based only on that type of credential.

    Sure, Horned, thats why tf2 got 20% on rottentomatoes.

    This report is actually cool

    by catlettuce4

    I have no interest in ever seeing the film, but this is still a neat look at moviemaking in action. With so much of modern films being made entirely in a computer, it's rather cool to see something on this scale being done for real, out on the streets.

    by AsimovLives

    ... that Nolan used for TDK! Jezzz, what a coincidence! Truly, Bay must have a one mean sore ass about Nolan.

    I didn't say critics (professional or amateur) liked it, but it made money which means real people liked it. I think they're ridiculous fun. That's all. They're not Academy Award material, but they're not meant to be. Sometimes you want a gourmet meal, and sometimes you just want a burger and fries.

  • July 22, 2010, 8:14 p.m. CST

    yeah, but even then I want a GOOD burger
