    Is it me, or the politically-correct term "little person" actually more offensive than the archaic term "midget?"

    "little person"? WTF? That's the PC term?

    Oh man, I can't believe you've got to use the subject line "little person" when you email them...

    I have nothing against "little people" but whenever they are in a movie it's usually a sign of bad Mini-Me humor.

    I agree, I don't have a problem with small people. It just seems that in an action movie it will be a source of bad humor or it will just seem out of place.

    I can't wait for Ewoks in TF2. No one dislikes Ewoks right?

    Oh those evil evil bastards. They just knew I might skip the second film so they decide to put in a midget because they know I'm not going to pass on a midget in a film.

    Sorry if anyone is offended by midget but I hate the term "little person", but maybe that's because I'm 5'6" and have family members shorter than me.

    Yeah, I have the feeling this will be played out for cheap laughs, which is the kind of thing Bay loves.


    I *LOATHED* the New York sequence of Armegeddon where the black dude argues with the stall owner for no reason, and then the stall owner is killed, buildings explode, people fall out of offices faceplanting the camera (or almost), and the entire scene is played out for laughs.

    Pretty much my thoughts on the matter, too. Bay doesn't seem to discriminate against any one given race or type of person, though. He just insults everyone. . .especially the audience :)

    Hmmm. What would be clever is if said midget is a holographic disguise for a small TF (Frenzy, anyone?)

    I'm hoping Frenzy survived.
