Michael S. Palmer has reviewed 'Transformers: Age of Extinction' & 'Transformers: Age of Extinction 3D'. This is the first Dolby Atmos release, and he has all the details on that as well.

Boy this seems like it came out fast, it's still at the bloody movies here. Edge of Tomorrow isn't even out yet and I'm sure that FINISHED at the movies before this even started.

Will be purchased for eye and ear candy purposes.

Thanks for the review, can't wait to break the sub with this one!

One thing, in the review you stated 7.1 TrueHD multiple times, but those screencaps you show only had TrueHD 5.1 in them. Typo?

The audio selection track certainly seems confusing. It should be simplified. Dolby Atmos/True HD 7.1


And may we please also have Josh Z's "The Movie Itself" rating?

I am like Shannon, have the other 3, will most likely get this one but still have not opened them yet.

Hey, Favelle, check this SCREENGRAB one more time.

The Audio options are as follows:

--Dolby Atmos (select this for 7.1 TrueHD if you do not have Atmos)
--5.1 English Dolby Digital (NOT TrueHD)
--2.0 English Dolby Digital (NOT TrueHD)
--French, Spanish, etc. in 5.1 (NOT TrueHD)

Does that answer your question?

Why would you ask for another reviewer's rating of the film? That's pretty distasteful. Moreover, Palmer's paragraph explaining his "The Movie itself" rating was a stroke of genius. I would hope you would be more appreciative of that. He clearly told us that he would subjectively give the film a 1-star rating, while also explaining that the film did everything that it set out to do for fans of such nihilism.

I'm not trying to personally bash you, but why did you buy them and not open them? I find it mildly annoying when people do that. I typically only buy movies I want to watch.

Also, I agree that it is a bit distasteful to request a second opinion on the movie itself here. Have you really NOT read enough critics' opinions on the movie to decide if it's for you of not? He did a pretty good job of laying it out for people of different tastes. Whether you'll like this one is not that hard to figure out.

A 3 is too much for a movie we have alreadly gotten three times beforehand.

I believe that all reviews should have a second opinion box or score... since opinions on movies are subjective and personal anyways. Perhaps Krawk finds that his tastes are more in line with Josh's opinion, and is curious to know his thoughts on TF4... if you actually understood what Michael S Palmer was saying about the nature of reviews, then you would likely assume that feedback on this film from other reviewers would be welcomed, not taken as an insult.
