I once asked my grandmother why they are called 'movies,' and she said 'because they are supposed to move you.' Today, I remember this quote as I've just seen one of the year's best and most moving films, The Good Lie.
Well, modern consumer scientific research finally has an answer to this puzzling question. And the answer is not just the world has poor taste in movies. The answer is we love judging, or in this case, bashing Bay.
Have you ever been sitting across from your inquisitive child and wondered, How the hell am I going to possibly explain such a thing to this kid in a way that he'll actually 'get it'? Well, this blog is written exclusively for you.
As Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles tops the box office for a second week in a row, we hate to say it, but a little part of our inner child dies. Between the 'roided out CGI turtles, the inevitable sexploitation of Megan Fox, and turtle lips (that should be enough right there), the new Turtles movie seemed poised to disappoint true fans from the get-go.

Fifteen of the most disgusting pizza orders from the TV show.
Many students go to college simply because they believe that is what they must do after leaving high school. I personally think a few years in between might be the best path for some -- while they find who they are as an adult.
Summer means a lot of things: School's out (a big "yay!" for the kids); sports like baseball and tennis kick into high gear; and families spend time at the pool and the beach, enjoying the fresh air and warmer weather.
