    I was sitting around doing a bit of thinking about the TF movie coming out on Monday.

    I honestly have never been a TF fan. I grew up on Ninja Turtles. The first TF toys I ever bought were the classics, and I own all the movie toys (because of my love for the movie.) I think I became a fan of TF but only for the new live action movie.

    With that said, as we approach Monday, the first time the movie will show, we should all give thanks to many people, and remember how lucky we are to see what could be the biggest, coolest, best crowd movie this year, if ever for the time being.

    I quietly roam these forums, looking at news, watching clips, yet I never heard of this site until the movie news started spilling out.

    I am very stoked to see this movie. So much infact I have never wanted to see a movie so bad in my life. However some aren't as lucky...

    While I never knew the guy, we have to be thankful just for waking up everyday, where many don't get to. As we walk into the auditoriums, we muct reflect on people like Shaun C. A person who aparently wanted to see the movie very badly. We get to see it, he doesn't. So going in and laughing, having a good time, let's do it for him. Let's enjoy it, as if he were in all of us.

    As for thanks, we should really thank Bay and company. Mike Bay didn't have to do this film, Spielberg didn't have to care, nor did the writers. Hell the whole crew deserves thanks, because of their hard work, everyone gets to enjoy a really good movie come Monday and for the rest of our lives.

    I seen alot of people get flak for making this movie, which I find to be a bit selfish by the people who dished it. No one even had to utter an idea like this. TF could've stayed a TV show forever, and no one had to care, but these fine people did. I for one am thankful.

    I myself have selected screenwriting, and filmmaking in general as my career, and many diretors have inspired me to try and beat them at their game, but it's all the same. Michael Bay is one of them. I have personally liked all his movies, and if he hadn't made such cool, action flicks, my imagination could've never ran wild.

    So everyone should really give thanks to those who made this happen. We should also remember any TF fan who couldn't wait for this film, but is no longer with us. I myself never liked TF until the movie, but here I am amongst a community I never knew about.

    Let's help Dreamworks have their first big franchise (non animated,) Michael Bay, Spielberg, the writers, and whole crew, as well as those TF fans no longer around, make this movie what it needs to be.

    Well said. Stick around, we could use some more fresh outlook around these parts.

    Well while everyone, including me, can sometimes take advantage of life, sometimes we gotta look deep to be thankful.

    I do this kind of thinking all the time. I'm not some super christian, or some super mellow person either, as I love acting crazy and having fun in life. Like I said though, I do take time to think about how lucky I am to wake up every morning, or get to eat the bomb food in this world, or see the next coolest thing, it just gets you thinking.

    Many of us have outlasted little children, who don't get to grow up like we have, so anytime something cool happens, I always feel like it's an honor to be able to see and do the next thing in life.

    Trust me though, I have a ton to be thankful for. I have gotten myself into many dangerous situations, that I could've easily landed myself in jail or dead, but something must be watching over me, so I finally thought, man I should calm down.

    When you're messing around with a chick at a lake in your car, that has been home to a serial killer, and you walk away from it, well you know what I mean. Such is the nature of growing up though, you never think about that stuff until you grow up and look back and laugh at it, or think, "man I'm lucky I'm not dead." :D

    It's nice to hear a positive opinion from someone who hasn't even seen the movie.

    I was a fan as a younger kid, but the movie sparked my interest a lot more. It appeals to my more mature mindset, while at the same time making me feel like a kid again.

    I'm all for Bay directing the sequel. Judging from this Movie, he has proved that he has a decent grasp on TF and I'd like to see what else he could do if given more time to explore the rest of the franchise/mythology.
