    Yeah, um, Paramount did this early screening program on Facebook. Basically, if you were a fan of the movie on Facebook, changed your profile pic to the shattered Decepticon symbol seen in the trailers (not Shattered Glass), and lived in LA County, you could enter in a contest to go to a screening on Thursday night (tomorrow, the 18th). I entered, and was sent a private message asking me to give my zip code and confirm I was over 13 and was available at said time. Fortunately, I turned 14 the day before receiving this PM. And I won! So I'm seeing Transformers 2 tomorrow at a theater in LA. I won't say which so that none of you can impersonate me :) .

    I feel kinda guilty that I didn't tell you guys about the contest on Monday when it started. Sorry guys!

    EDIT: Thanks to all who have left a slightly more congratulatory or amiable comment. I original intent in starting this topic was not to spur jealousy or enmity, but to inform you about the contest and my process through it, which is why this post is more centered on the contest than my winning of it. I suppose I did get a little carried away, but I assure you I did not mean to anger any of you. I sincerely apologize to any of you who feel that this was a threatening topic or meant to instill resentment or jealousy in any of you. I was simply excited and wanted to share, what I thought was good news, with all you.

    Um... okay...

    Kinda seems ironic you turned the required age on the same day, though.

    Aint is not a word, and there is no such thing as PG-15. This kid is lucky enough to see this movie, and you wish bad things upon him. You have irked me good sir.

    Day before actually, but still! It's great!

    That kinda hurts :p .

    I'm sorry if that's the impression you get. I do admit a ton of guilt for not remembering to have posted information about the contest on the day it began. sorry <:]

    Congrats on winning the contest, although I'm a bit miffed because I also entered the contest by changing my profile picture to the movie logo, and I didn't win. Sigh.

    Are you serious? I wished bad things on him? No shit there isn't a Pg-15, it was a damned joke because he just turned 13 the day before he won the contest. And ain't is a word. You have earned a time out good sir.

    Yes, I used their shattered Decepticon logo (got it off their site as well), posted a comment in that thread about the contest, and I'm 30-something. Just sucks that I didn't win.

    Then happy belated birthday! I spent my 14th birthday in a sweaty hell hole at the base of an active volcano in Costa Rica but you get to watch Transformers...

    Uh...I think we should raise our glasses to you, actually. While it was obviously a far from pleasant experience ("hell hole"), it's an experience most of us (and most people, for that matter) will never ever get to see.

    One of nature's most dangerous and awe-inspiring creations, and you're right there experiencing it first hand.

    That's awesome. ROTF will hit DVD and Blu-Ray at some point, but no one can bottle or capture a live volcano and being there in person.

    You sir, win the thread.

    Why do you always have to blow everything out of proportion?
    Who gives a shit? Get laid or something.

    I stayed a mile from a volcano. loud, earthquakes, humid as hell, No a/c or a breeze, eruptions, not knowing if the damned thing was just gonna pop or what? Other than that, my trip was killer once we got outside the jungle. The bartender agreed to give me drinks as long as I gave him my hat. So there, stick it.


    You sir, killed the thread.
