Thoughts on Michael Bay’s “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”…

I don’t like Michael Bay movies just like most people. I hate what he did to the Transformers movies but surprisingly enough, Michael’s take on the “TMNT” looks kind of interesting to me. This trailer is getting mixed reviews. You either love it or hate it. Some are willing to give a chance and I am too. I think it looks pretty promising. I know CGI Turtles is kind of silly but if you think about it, the CGI Turtles is the right thing to do. I think it would be pretty tough for a human in costume to do all those dangerous stunts, ya know? Back in the 90’s when the original turtles were made for the big screen, the CGI technology wasn’t big back then.

With that being said, I think the new Turtles movie looks pretty cool and I’m willing to give it a chance. I’ll probably go check it out.

Keep in mind, this is just a “teaser” so the next trailer will show a lot more footage from the movie. People shouldn’t be so quick in criticizing.

Report: Paramount pushes back Ninja Turtles reboot to May of 2014…

Michael Bay’s planned, “Ninja Turltes” re-boot is being pushed back by Paramount Pictures to May of 2014, instead of the original release date of Dec. of next year. The reasons being, is the script. Maybe they just want to take their time with the script and make it good?

I love the Ninja Turtles, I just don’t like Michael Bay being in charge of this movie.

I haven’t been that impressed with Michael Bay’s movies over the years. I only like very few of them, although, I will admit, that the 3rd “Transformers” film, “Dark of the Moon” was actually really really good, so much improvement there. I just hope Bay doesn’t fuck up the Ninja Turtles.

I was a big Turtles fan as a kid. Used to read the comics, watch the cartoons, played their video games, saw all the original movies, etc. I hope they won’t make the Turtles CGI characters, which I have a feeling they will be anyway.

Brock’s thoughts, on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles controversy…

As a huge fan of the TMNT, I thought I would respond to this as I’m sure some of you are curious on my thoughts. Director Michael Bay, put his fans into outrage again after he announced that he is adapting a re-boot of the TMNT franchise. Then he went on to say that the turtles came from an alien race which upset some of the die-hard fans. Michael then, responded again, telling fans they need to calm down, saying he wants to expand the origins and give it a more complex back up story.

Read the full article, here.

While everyone knows they aren’t aliens, they were actually mutants. They got turned into mutants by radioactive waste. They didn’t come from space or other planets.

While I’m sure that’s not what Michael Bay means, the TMNT’s re-boot is still gonna suck. He’s still going to destroy TMNT’s, just like he destroyed the Transformers franchise. You can betcha the TMNT’s re-boot will be a huge special effects movie full of CGI. I sure hope the Turtles themselves won’t be CGI characters, they probably will be, I wouldn’t be surprised.

On top of all this, it’s not the first that the TMNT’s origin story has been changed. It’s been changed before through the cartoon series, and the animated movie, “Turtles: Forever”. I’m sure they changed the origin stories through the comics many times, as well.

I’m not sure if Michael Bay is directing the “TMNT’s” re-boot or if he’s just producing it, but either way it’s still going to suck. If they can make Master Shredder, all badass and evil looking, I might give it a chance, but I’ve been skeptical of this re-boot even before this controversy started.
