Slow news week.

Sorry about missing last week, but I was on vacation and got back late Sunday. I shouldn't miss one again for some time.

haha, the TMNT movie gets moved to the dumping ground of summer.

I was oddly thinking about this earlier and was wondering when it was coming out. with Michael Bay involved, I will find this hard to believe it will be any good. but, Megan Fox is attractive, at least. and it could be interesting??? but probably a mess. but getting moved to August doesn't sound good.

Exactly! I'll go see it, but I expect it to be painful. I mean, this started off by making them aliens instead of mutants. I know that's since changed, but it shows how little they care to be true to the source material.

Is this supposed to be pg-13 type of tone like Transformers? Or are they going for a pg?

eh, I thought it was okay. I wouldn't argue over it. it had its problems, but I found it overall enjoyable.


if anyone other than Bay was making the new one, I would have better expectations. I just fear it'll be filled with terrible jokes and a plethora of comic relief characters that aren't funny and focus more on April than the Turtles.

I always at least half enjoy any TMNT movie just because the characters are nostalgic for me.
