Platinum Dunes Sets Us All Up For Disappointment with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Remake

Platinum Dunes is making a name for themselves with Remakes, Reboots, Redo’s or whatever they’re called.

Platinum Dunes 8-Step Film Making Formula:

Step 1: Pay for the rights of a beloved genre property.

Step 2: Hire an unimaginative team of screenwriters.

Step 3: Hire a music video director.

Step 4: Rent/Buy the biggest fog machine possible.

Step 5: Watch Michael Bay masturbate.

Step 6: Provide a half ass, watchable, yet immediately forgettable movie.

Step 7: Watch fanboy/girls cry into their palms and then venomously bitch and moan via the internet.

Step 8: Wipe collective asses with handfuls of $100 bills.

That 8 Step Formula will be applied to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles property.  *Shrug*

Movie Review: Transformers – Revenge of the Fallen

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Rating: ★½☆☆☆ 

Directed By: Michael Bay

Starring: Shia LaBeouf, Megan Fox, John Turturro, Ramon Rodriguez

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen exists only to fuel Michael Bay‘s U. S. Military and Gigantic Explosion masturbatory fantasies.  It is an exercise in excess gone horribly wrong.  Maybe Michael Bay just wanted to create a Frat Boy Drinking Game movie, “Every time you see an explosion or cleavage, take a drink!” So, maybe he succeeded in what he set out to do.  However, Mr. Bay, I’ve cut you slack numerous times, but I would like my 2 AND A HALF HOURS of my life back.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is Officially the Worst Reviewed Highest Grossing Movie of all Time


Slashfilm has done the research and concluded that Michael Bay’s Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is the Worst-Reviewed-Highest-Grossing-Movie of all time.

So far, $600 million has been collected from masses for this mindless suck-fest.  Granted, a lot of these were pre-sold tickets and the marketing for the film was pretty damn awesome.

However, once reviews came in from critics and geeks alike….things didn’t look so good.  But, bad word of mouth hasn’t stopped this cash cow of a crappy movie.  Thanks everyone for empowering and thus inflating Michael Bay’s ego even more.

Check out the stats that Slashfilm discovered after the jump:

Transformers 2 Worse Than Wolverine and Terminator Salvation


It’s official: X-men Origins: Wolverine is the 2nd best reviewed Blockbuster of the Summer (behind Star Trek, of course).

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is getting a BEATING by almost everyone who’s seen it.  Both critics and fanboys alike would love to crucify Michael Bay.  It is currently resting at 20% on, as compared to 2007′s Transformers which settled at 57%.

Head over to Rotten Tomatoes to read all the reviews.  I’m actually surprised that it’s being hated on so much.  The effects look amazing, however it looks like Michael Bay’s horrible sense of humor and bloated running time ruin the proceedings.
