VOTD: Every 3D Movie is the Same

Watch enough movies, and you’ll find that you occasionally walk out of the theater sometimes with the vaguely disappointing feeling that you’ve just shelled out $14 to see a movie you’re already seen before. Sometimes, it’s no surprise that a film looks derivative — did anyone really expect Underworld: Awakening to wow us with its originality, for example? — but even great movies fall prey to old habits sometimes. The Avengers was exhilarating, but Lord knows we’ve seen the dear old Big Apple demolished more than a few times before, and often in very similar ways at that.

Or when a female extra was left with brain damage after an accident during filming of the third film in Chicago? (She recently filed a lawsuit against the production.) Well, the hits just keep on coming. Literally. Monday afternoon, a Washington D.C. police officer responding to an emergency call narrowly missed crashing into Optimus Prime before slamming into Bumblebee on the set of the Transformers: The Dark of the Moon and it was beautifully caught on tape by a local news team. We’ve got the video and details after the jump but there’s no word if the Decpticons were behind the accident. Read More »
