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 …

Neve Campbell laments her post-SCREAM life: I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies

Neve Campbell Confirms Her 'Scream' Notoriety Inspired Her Decision to Leave Hollywood »

“I needed a minute. In my 20s, it all hit so fast and so big that it was a little overwhelming,” Campbell shared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. “Wonderful, obviously, and I’m very grateful for it, but it got to a level, also, where the kinds of things that I was being offered were not the things I wanted to do. I was constantly being offered horror films, because I was known for horror films, or bad romantic comedies.”

And this week she will be jumping out of building with the Rock in theaters ..

All 'scream queens' have gone through a period of confusion, denial.. acceptance. And now for Jamie Lee Curtis 40 years after her introduction to movies via being chased by killer Michael Myers, she is back for a final round.. 
Just as Campbell came home for the final SCREAM..
