Again, though (debating myself here): if Bay had just made a big, dumb movie about random robots fighting, people probably still would've swarmed to see it, and the studio wouldn't have owed a dime to the Transformers rights-holders.

You'd probably be surprised, VG.

It seems from personal exp that TMNT was a p big deal for people 5 or so years younger than me

I will cop to liking the cartoon and the movie in early high school....but I also wanted to marry Rikki Rockett and wore neon everything so things change.

i'm choosing to believe bay has only ever seen that internet porn cartoon ripoff, has no idea it was an afterschool show with toys etc

goole, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 21:28 (2 years ago) Permalink

I had a LOT of the toys as a kid. One of my friends had the blimp though the bastard

My little brother had all the toys. AND the van. :D

Um, it wasn't just a van, it was a PARTY WAGON.

i'm ok w/ the turtles being aliens as long as there is a 1/1 pizza/explosions ratio

- remember how aweseome Casey Jones was in the movie? I had such a crush on him

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 22:40 (2 years ago) Permalink

I vividly recall a friend introducing me to the (second-gen, kiddie friendly) TMNT comics.
He basically turned into Milhouse. "It's great -- these turtles are really kickass at ninja-fighting and they have a mentor who's a rat and they eat pizza ALL THE TIME!"

Why on earth was April O'Neil's always dressed in a yellow jumpsuit anyways? Wasn't she a journalist?
(Uh, oh my -- image-googlers be warned: turns out there's a pornographer by that name. Not to mention that a lot of people apparently have felt the urge to draw her being banged by the teenage mutant herpes turtles)

Øystein, Tuesday, 20 March 2012 22:56 (2 years ago) Permalink

I think April wore that cos she was so sexy they had to put her in the least flattering costume ever. And she was still bangin'.

I discovered TMNT one day in Elementary school when some kid had a bunch of action figures. The first two movies are really fun to watch. The first one, in particular, is pretty dark and gritty. The cartoon was a staple of my Sat. mornings and the arcade games are some of the coolest licensed games ever.

The CGI movie was pretty fun, good times. Don't understand why they are going live action rather than CGI cos frankly you can't top the turtles from the first movie.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 23:04 (2 years ago) Permalink

Also someone who think Bay is sodomizing the franchise must not be aware of "Ninja Rap", the third film, the TV show with the lady ninja turtle, or the Coming Out Of Their Shells musical tour.

Emperor Cos Dashit (Adam Bruneau), Tuesday, 20 March 2012 23:06 (2 years ago) Permalink

One other point about the upcoming movie: the OG creators were never sticklers about cross-media (or even cross-book) continuity. Like, there are easily a half dozen variants of the origin story, for example. But none of those veered as far afield as Bay's proposed vision.

Also, for those who didn't know, the TMNT are owned by Nickelodeon now, not Eastman & Laird. Which may go some way towards explaining why (wrt this particular instance, anyway) Bay just don't give a fuck.

People crying about the Bay-ificsation of TMNT have apparently forgotten about this abomination...

Ninja Turtles, cartoon on, was never a high-quality piece of thoughtful entertainment (I never read the original comics of it). It's really irritating to me that kids are being marketed the same things their parents were 20-30 years ago. Maybe this trend's gone on for a long time but I never noticed it. Today's children need their own pile of singular inane, commercialized shit to cherish.

I pretty much deny all knowledge of the turtles after the first movie

and even the live turtles in the first movie were a liiiiiiiiiiittle creepy

more fun as a cartoon imo

BTW, Michael Zulli's three-issue run on TMNT in 1991 is the benchmark of the whole series...

feel like the bay movie is likely to skew toward the zulli look

whether or not there's any validity to the complaints, can't we all at least agree that professional grief being heaped upon michael bay is net gain for humanity?

Thing I liked most about the first couple of movies was the connection they had to NY/bboy culture, however vague. It was like watching a live action anime about a bunch of breakdancers. Also hands up everyone who can sing the verse couple of verses of the T.U.R.T.L.E. Power rap from the 1st film....?

But I was a boy heard many legends of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and I remember any early days they were small comic book characters within arms then they truly were cute and lovable they weren't the nightmare monster destruction that they put gum in the minds of the crazed Disney corporate mentality

1 month passes...

just watched the original movie for the first time since 1990 (i'm old) and hey, it's actually kind of awesome! i can't say it's especially 'dark,' but pretty much any time the turtles themselves aren't onscreen it plays fairly straight and serious. they seemed to be going out of their way to make as adult-friendly a turtles movie as possible without going over the top with the 'darkness' shit that everyone seems to want from their comic book movies these days.

also kind of stunned by how much product placement there is in this movie -- there's a can of diet pepsi or something in the foreground of almost every other scene!

Looks less like a movie poster more like the side of a vending machine advertizing a new flavor of Mountain Dew.

if that's the colour palette of the movie then the world can look forward to a 150 minute headache.
