MEGAN FOX Speedpainting... The Transformers Live Action Movie Blog posted this cool video of Megan Fox’s famous car-hood scene from the first Transformers film being re-created digitally by artist Nico Di Mattia. I thought that the video capture below was a screenshot from the 2007 flick... Nope, that’s the final product by Mr. Di Mattia. Awesome work.

As for Transformers 3 news, the third movie is still in the middle of pre-production as work continues to gear up for the start of principal photography...which was rumored to start next month but should most likely begin in May or June (just like Revenge of the Fallen). In terms of rumors, the TF Movie Blog also mentions that TF3 will film in Moscow and Chicago, and that Bay might release the movie in 3-D. I’m just hoping that TF3 will be good as the first flick. Is that asking too much? Later.

Leonardo DiCaprio hugs his dead wife (Michelle Williams) in SHUTTER ISLAND.

SHUTTER ISLAND... I saw the flick last Saturday, and despite some editing issues that were also present in Martin Scorsese’s Oscar-winning movie, The Departed, Shutter Island is one awesome mindf**k of a film. That’s definitely a compliment. It really is pretty odd that Paramount Pictures would release this flick during the s**t month of February (it was originally suppose to have been released last November). For karmic purposes (haha), they should’ve waited till like, May to roll out Shutter Island...since Gladiator and Crash came out in May of 2000 and 2005, respectively, and went on to win Best Picture at the Academy Awards the following years. Oh well. Hopefully the Academy will have a good memory and remember this movie come Oscar season this Fall. Later.

What's in the lighthouse?

The prawns' mothership looms high above the alien exosuit manned by Wikus Van De Merwe in DISTRICT 9.

82nd ANNUAL ACADEMY AWARD NOMINATIONS... Avatar, The Hurt Locker (both unsurprisingly) and District 9 all received Oscar nominations for Best Picture this morning. Nice. Good to see that the Academy didn't drop the ball this time around. Actually, I take that back. Star Trek should've gotten a nom as well. Sorry Trekkies.

And glad to see that Hans Zimmer got a Best Original Score nomination for Sherlock Holmes. I was surprised to see that it was Zimmer who did the fantastic music (since the score sounded very un-Zimmerish) for the Robert Downey Jr. film when I watched the end credits. Word.

Jake Sully and Neytiri in AVATAR.
