I disagree because the only reason Megan Fox worked in Transformers was because she was only there to be the sexually appealing love interest. Granted, April O' Neil is incredibly attractive as well being a redhead in a yellow jumpsuit, but the thing is that's not the only thing about her that characterizes her.

There's no real way I'm ever going to look at Megan Fox and say "That's April O' Neil, right there." Instead all I'm going to think is "WTF is Megan Fox doing here in a Ninja Turtles movie?"

She's not a bad actress though - she just didn't get anything to work with.
Every human actor would look totally out of place in a Transformers movie.
I'm more surprised about the fact that Bay's working with her again after he kicked her out of T3 to replace her with a pair of skinny asscheeks attached to a lifeless flesh-version of an emotionless robot.

John Turturro was in the first two movies, you know.

Can you name some movies that she was a compelling actress in?

I've seen Jonah Hex and Jennifer's Body, and I didn't like her in either of those.

I can, actually: Transformers 1 and 2. I never got the impression that she delivered her lines or acted badly. The lines just SUCKED because of the script (I'm looking at your, Kurtzman and Orci) and even for a human she didn't have a real role in the movies. That makes the character crap, certainly. But i wouldn't fault the actor for that. They feed ya shit you ain't shittin' gold.

He and his bodyguard need their own movie. Like, right now.

See I disagree again because even if the script is shitty, the actor still needs to put on a good show.

I don't know why they don't just have April O'neil play April O'neil.

I wish they got a better looking actress. I don't find Megan Fox hot at all.

Honestly if they were just going to pick someone hot they should have just went with Christina Hendricks. She probably wouldn't make any better of an April O' Neil, but at least she has the aesthetic down by being busty and redheaded.

Not sure how those two work together...

Also, granted that I've only ever been a fan of the cartoon and the video games during childhood, but April never struck me as a sex object, nor as a physically appealing character. That really wasn't her role in the story, as far as I am concerned.

The thing about words is that meanings can twist just like a snake, and if you want to find snakes look for them behind words that have changed their meaning.

No one ever said elves are nice.

It's a Michael Bay movie. Even the EXPLOSIONS are sex objects.

Today has been a shit day. Shit weather and nothing to do.

Maybe I should study, just to keep myself occupied with something.

Last day of classes before spring break, 3 papers due tomorrow. Decided to play hooky and finish them. Woke up at 4, and have been masturbating constantly since.

Why does your day sound incredibly similar to mine right now? (Granted, all I'm having to do is one research paper.)

Viagra isn't meant to be a study aid.

Interestingly, I too am studying for my exams this saturday, and have been doing so for the past 15 hours.

Sans masturbation though. Celebrating with a friend on saturday, and will be saving myself for that.

In all seriousness I seriously regret learning to make Turkish coffee. It's incredibly strong (honestly, it's almost like a coffee-pudding) and for the past 15 minutes I've felt like my ribcage is losing a fight with my heart.
