    Here's the link to the article...

    I thought this was really funny. Sorry, the film fan in me weighs out over my need to enjoy every single thing related to transformers...

    "We're just getting started on the storyboards, but I've already got a lot of really contrived ideas about zooming in way too close and shooting everything at nauseating angles," said Bay, who claimed viewers won't be able to tell if the climactic final battle is between two blurry elbows or a half dozen leopard-print pillows. "I promise you'll walk out of the theater feeling like you just flushed $12 down the toilet."

    Ha ha, that was a good one. Sometimes you wonder if other people understand your pain of having to deal with the fact that Hollywood hates you because they let Micheal Bay direct movies, and yet the Onion nailed it perfectly.

    I may have to borrow the line:

    A bit heavy-handed, but also hilarious. Sums up my feelings nicely.

    Oh, and Rob Schneider as Snarf is brilliant. :)

    Deary me...even though I'm a movie fan, The Onion are too damn good at writing for me not to laugh at the delivery. :lol 

    This should be held up as a shining example to all the trolls and haters out there: if you're going to hate, then at least entertain us with it. :)

    lol yeah, I agree with Smog that its kinda heavy-handed. Not really my cup of tea.

    I just can't get into the kind of jokes that feel they need to beat you over the head with the punch line. Good humor is all about subtlety.

    The Onion proves that if you're going to troll someone, do it with style.

    This isn't really happening, is it?

    TFs are one thing, but live-action Thundercats is always destined to suck balls, even if Jesus himself was directing. Seriously?

    No it's the Onion, it's part of how they run their jokes. You take a bit of something real then you add a bit of crazy to make for a really funny fake news story.

    Don't feel bad though I've seen people run with Onion stories far worse without knowing that the Onion was not a real news source.

    Ha ha, but I'm right there with you that a live action Thundercats movie would be a total nightmare no matter who they could put in the director's chair.

    Hah. Michael Bay sucks universally. I think anyone alive who knows how to appreciate a movie knows why Bay doesn't. Even Kim Jong Il knows Bay can't make a movie.

    Bay is Ed Wood with a modern budget/technology.

    This is pretty much how I feel about the G.I. Joe movie. That piece of crap is gonna tank HARD. So will (does?) the Dragonball Evolution movie...
