  1. Ooooh. Come on. Why the Michael Bay hateing. I know he doesn’t make moves that will go down i history as culturel masterpieces, but we are talking freaking Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Transformers!!!
    As a child a would have given my left foot to see such movies.
    I will take my son to see both, get an extra large popcorn and coke, and have a hell of a time.

      I would seriously argue that Pain & Gain is a cultural masterpiece. It’s basically the contemporary Taxi Driver.

  2. KurtJMac is that guy walking to the end of the world in Minecraft. The series is called Far Lands or Bust, and he raises money for the Child’s Play charity while doing it. This latest season of the show he raised $185,565.14.
