Teenage mutant ninja summer: Megan Fox and her half shells

Get ready for heroes in a half shell. My son is already enthralled by the minute plus trailer for the NINJA TURTLES movie with Megan Fox coming out this summer.. Although I have read a few sources that are not as excited as today's youth are with the Michael Bay rethink of the TURTLES..
And others are providing harsh commentary on Megan Fox' abilities to transform into April O'Neill. The only thing I really noted about the trailer was the lack of substance, but instead the reliance on big action bombs and blasts and Megan Fox's face. Not three seconds of the trailer went by without seeing Megan Fox ..

It seems that every time the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES come around, they get bigger. This one is no different. It appears that Michael Bay made them absolutely huge, as though they were steroid-using weight lifting heroes in a half shell .. Maybe too big?

As a student of the 1980s and 90s, the cartoon featured turtles who were short and fun.. As a matter of fact, even April O'Neill was taller than them. Not this go around, though.. Michael Bay made them ugly and huge.. They looked more like alligators than turtles.
And Megan Fox looks more like Megan Fox than April.
And Michael Bay looks like Michael Bay.

But does TMNT look more like Pearl Harbor than a hit?

Will Megan Fox be all thumbs?

Will the new imagined turtles scare kids?

Time will tell, this summer...

The trailer here:





New Year's Eve.. Rockin' without Dick Clark in '13

Welcome to the final minutes of the year 2012. Yes. Already. It was so looked forward to, and it is ending so quickly...

It's minus Dick Clark this year, though. And that is notable. Fergie is showering ABC viewers tonight in the pre-game with Dick Clark related footage. Donna Summers is playing while the Doors are swaying. Yes, it's a stroll down amnesia lane in the fast lane. Dick Clarkless 2013. No countdown with the master of Times Square this year.

The show goes on, of course. With Ryan Seacrest to help. Before Seacrest will be 'out' there will be a number of events that occur. A massive ball will drop in Times Square. Revelers will kiss their hearts out.. then race for port-a-potties and their hotel rooms. Maybe stop by a pub and have a cup of cheer..

All around the world, the events are taking place. Some places on Earth are already 2013. The Pope will have a homily about how peace could be achieved. Fireworks will fly high into the night sky.. People will embrace …
