Smile Dark of the Moon DVD/Bluray released

DVD is out, y'all.

It even comes with a $5 coupon for Transformers toys, which in no way discredits it as legitimate cinema, lol.

Giant worm smashy-smashy time!

If I got my facts right, its ages away from a UK release though, right? Which is totally fair. . .

You'd think somebody would have advertized it..... Wal-Mart usually has ads all over the place.

They started sticking them on the theft detectors by the doors about a month ago.

Boo, the local DVD store isn't picking up Dark of the Moon until the two/three-disc special editions. I'll need to wait for November.

Because they're more expensive.

Troll shops, damn you.

3 months from cinema to DVD release is rapid. The time between gets shorter and shorter.

All that's being advertized on the theft detectors at the local Wal-Mart is video games.

Your Walmart must be run by a bunch of robophobes. You should protest.

I wish it were, but guess it'll wait until the end of November. I'm looking forward to picking up the 3 film Bluray set and watching the lot in glorious HD for the first time too!

Woo!

Got Transformers: Dark of the Moon delivered on Bluray today (I think official release date is this Monday 28th November over here).

Watched it earlier, and it looks great and is a good fun film. I don't get why Empire rated it so poorly lately (two stars!) - it's actually a very good blockbuster. It was also my first Transformers experience in HD, and was awesome!

I got the boxset to upgrade the others from DVD to Bluray, and I must say, while I'm excited about watching them all in HD, saying the set is lackluster is an understatement. As I'm sure we all know, there are no extras at all and the Blurays are just provided in their individual release cases all within a dull and tacky cardboard slipcase. Very poor show - I would have preferred at least consistent box-art (the three are quite different), although a space-saving box containing all three discs would have been even better.

It's as if they aren't expecting to get much interest in the film. Was it really so unsuccessful? I would have thought the boxset would have mileage on the basis of the first film at least, and especially with Christmas round the corner. Really don't get it - DOTM is such an improvement on ROTF, and compares well as a sequel to the first. It's a shame the world seems to have decided to hate it offhand.

Ach well - highway chase, giant smashy-smashy worm and fall of Chicago are all highlights, and Sentinel Prime is just such a great character!

I haven't been paying too much attention, but is there any word as to when the "full" DOTM release is happening? I was assuming it would be out before Christmas and was thinking I had heard a late November date a while back, but maybe I just made that all up.

I think he means the two-disc ones with bonus features.

Question

According to Christ McFeely on Twitter the Blu Ray is missing some dialogue, most noticeably the "Is your daddy home?" bit from Laserbeak, though oddly this is on the DVD included in the same triple play box. Can anyone confirm this?

I don't know about outside the US, but here, the full Blu-ray special editions (with 3D Blu-ray and all the special features) is coming out on December 6th. At least according to this website:

Excellent! An excuse to watch it again! (Not that I need one...)

I'll check the Bluray when I get back from Arran tomorrow.

I have watched DOTM and ROTF on Bluray now, and both look amazing in HD. However, ROTF is so much poorer than DOTM it has become painful... The difference in story quality is stunning - but nothing takes away from the absolutely breathtaking transformation of Devastator!

Need to watch TFTM on Bluray still - can't wait for Blackout's arrival in HD!

I think if DOTM had been the direct sequel to TFTM it would have received less panning. ROTF was shoddily scripted and runs like a G1 cartoon - which is fine for me, and the action scenes are brill, but it must have turned lots of the public and critics off from Transformers and tainted their view of DOTM which is a far superior blockbuster.

But, yes, full version meaning that the "quick to video" version came without any special features and Bay promised a mind-blowing follow-up disc experience that was going to take some time to get together. I hadn't heard the Dec. 6 date, but that makes perfect sense and makes me happy. I just got a PS3, so I might get to experience the Hi Def difference now too!
