Michael Bay Protests MARCH OF THE PENGUINS

This article from THE ONION about says it all. For those of you who don't know THE ONION (where have you been, by the way?) you should take the authorship here with a major rock of salt. However, it does have some fantastic lines.
For Christ's sake, there was not a single crane shot in the whole movie!
This film is an insult to the great men and women who spend countless hours in front of computers creating incredibly realistic CGI icebergs.
What kind of a world do we live in when a futuristic techno-thriller starring Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson as escaped clones on levitating jet bikes doesn't outgross the shit out of a glorified Discovery Channel rerun? Don't people realize how much money I spent? How many people it took to bring that vision to the screen? Do people realize how many rewrites and punch-ups we went through? I paid my writers millions of dollars, and they were some of the best in the biz. You know who wrote their script? A bunch of birds.
Dig in campers, it's worth the read.
