As if he hasn't ruined enough beloved memories from many of our youths, now he wants to make a new Ninja Turtles movie. And best of all? They'll be aliens, yep no mutants in this movie, aliens.

The difference between Michael Bay and Uwe Boll is that Bay's movies make money.

But...ugh. I'm afraid of what they will look like. Maybe sponsorships on their shells?

So...Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles? Or would they be ninjas since that is an earth-based martial arts system? And would they be turtles since they are an earth-based creature? So...Teenage Alien Fighting Amphibians?

OH NO lets fake like we care about childhood tv shows being remade into movies (we don't) and claim we won't see them now (we will) and act like everyone will boycott them with us (they won't).

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.

As somebody that enjoyed the camp of the original TMNT movies and felt the last CG movie was OK, I'm kinda looking forward to mindless action explosion fest this is going to be. That's the one thing I like about Michael Bay: you know exactly what you're getting yourself into. Mind off, explosions on.

I know the Transformers movies aren't perfect, but I'm never sure what exactly people expected when they go on rants about how they hated them.

They are live action movies about alien robots that disguise themselves as cars, and the source material that they are based off of is a 1980's cartoon for children... What exactly do you want? Best picture of the year material? :lol:

I think the issue is that people want the movies to make them feel as happy as they did when they were watching it at 8 years old. The problem with that is most people have significantly higher expectations as adults in comparison to themselves as a kid, plus it's hard to compete with something that triggers strong nostalgia.

You're right, I do have high expectations as an adult. And as simple minded as the cartoons were, they didn't feature any characters with wrecking balls not-so-subtlety disguised as testicles or racially stereotyped characters. Hell the movies have been less mature than the cartoon or original movie.

Well, with the turtles having different personalities, I'm guessing we'll have a jive or hip hop turtle(maybe even gangster at that rate), a stoner turtle, and probably the Charlie Chan Clan. Hell, it wouldn't even surprise me if they gave Splinter HUGE buck teeth and super squinty eyes like Mickey Rourke in Breakfast at Tiffany's...with the accent of course.

Well actually splinter already basically looks like that. Granted the teeth are because he's a rat.

Have you seen Transformers Prime yet (it airs on The Hub)? It is fantastic and takes the source material seriously and doesn't dumb anything down. It is a perfect example of what the movies should have attempted to do. It is probably the best version of Transformers I've ever seen - I can't say enough good things about it. Definitely check it out if you can - season 1 just came out on blu-ray.

True enough, but it wasn't ching-chong-chinaman-esque. Unlike the minstrels from Revenge of the Fallen. I remember the teeth from the cartoon and original comic series and apparently, they weren't that bad from google image or a quick flip through my collection.

I've seen some clips of Prime and it looks really good. Better than Beast Wars, which gets a bum rap.

less humans and randomn t&A and more focus on the robots. also no stupid robot humor and robots using stupid slang terms and and definitely no racial stereotype robots. and no robots with big balls and no robots pissing.


nobody expected oscar worthy material but the transformers films are fucking stupid. how the Fuck can giant robots with weapons that could easily demolish the earth not be able to kill one or 2 particular humans? these movies dont require you to suspend belief they expect you to be retarded.

tits, ass , lame jokes and tons of explosions with no substance.thats all his movies are about and when it comes to some things it just doesnt cut it. the guy is stuck in the 90s.


as far as this turtle movie goes them being aliens is stupid but i dont care the turtles are pretty much a dead property to me. theyve been killed off and resurrected more times than dracula at this point on tv and in films. it sucks they cant come up with something new instead of rehashing the same old shit. hel if you want to refresh something why not flash gordon or bukaroo banzai. im still waiting for a sequel to doctor detroit lol.

You know, IIRC the original concept for the turtles was dark, like Batman dark. The only thing we grew up with was the cartoon show/comics and while the first movie was slightly dark (and obviously my favorite for that reason), it was still wacky enough to be a kids movie. If anything, this is an opportunity to actually get closer to the source material and. . .yeah, it's Michael Bay.

Never-fucking-mind.

Although I hate Michael Bay movies, I accept them for what they are..mindless trash. My problem with him is why does he make movies about a known IP then change it. If you want to make a movie about karate aliens make one, don't make a TMNT movie & change their origin.

If Chris Nolan got hold of this and wanted to make a dark version, like the original comics were, I'd be all over it. It would be the first time that they'd really be done true to the comics.

You should watch Turtles Forever. Its hysterical and those original comic book era turtles make an appearance. I couldnt stop laughing while watching this.

As for the movie.. Teenage Ninja Aliens doesnt really have the same effect as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I wont hate on it yet though. Im not a fan of Transformer movies (then again even as a child I was more a fan of the toys than the cartoons) but I will still give this a chance. It cant be any worse than the last CG Turtles movie. April was a ninja in it! Huh?

I still have the ol' Mirage Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic, Issue #1 somewhere in storage.

That said, I don't care about the property. However, if I were a fan of any property I'd be pissed if Michael Bay acquired the rights to use it in a film. His mediocre Transformers films is a good example of his, well, mediocrity.

I did like his version of The Island, tho.

Both the original comic and pretty much all the comics under Mirage were of a more darker tone and almost nothing like the tv show that everyone knows the Turtles from.

I've been a big fan of them for pretty much my whole life. I was an late 80's early 90's kid so I grew up with the show and movies. Once I got a little older I got into the comics and stayed with them all the way up until co-creato Peter Laird sold the rights to Viacom just two(?) years ago. As a huge fan, I'm pretty worried. Though, I will admit that I'm just glad a new movie is being made at this point. I'm a little outraged at the Alien race bit, but I'll reserve my judgment for now, at least until more story details are revealed. Even Mr. Laird himself has stated that it could be an interesting concept. :shrugs:

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.
