I loved the first movie but could do without the others much less one from Michael Bay.
By now I'd hope most everyone here is aware of Hollywood's lack of originality. What makes the problem even worse is when the producer is awful. Has this clown produced anything remotely enjoyable? Years ago I attempted to watch his version of Transformers but I only made it to the part when the boy was arrested. I couldn't believe the steaming pile of crap that changed everything I knew from both the comics and cartoons of the 80's. The horror remakes he was involved with didn't strike me nearly as bad though. When I hear of a remake or reboot of an old and popular franchise, I have certain expectations such as quality and doing justice by the back story and what we've come to know. Someone already mentioned three of these horror films made by Platinum Dunes and while I can watch them, I can't ignore the sheer volume of crap contained in them. I'm led to believe the only thing which mattered during casting was the appearance of these "actors." Bay should take a few lessons from Craven & Co. who were involved with the remakes of Hills 1&2 as well as The Last House On The Left.
Will TMNT be worth watching? I'm willing to bet everything I own that says no.
I've become accustomed to holywood ruining every thing, so honestly I'm not really too surprised. You think this is bad? The Akira remake's got that woman from Twilight playing Kei.
There's not a damned thing they won't touch. Wouldn't be to surprised if he picked up the rights to do a Killer 7 movie and have Soulja Boi play Garcian.
I'm not sure what place our expectations on back stories and origins will have in the new order. Seriously, people in this very group would rather discuss hypothetical and factless alternate universes than real history, and they are the majority opinion today.
The reason we don't want to discuss real Sega history as much here is because we all know it by heart pretty much. Yeah a few new details might come out, but it still leads to the same sad end.
By discussing alternate Sega histories though we are not actually going back and rewriting history with the risk of possibly making people think it actually happened. That's the big difference between that and what Hollywood currently does.
Could be as bad as TMNT 3.
Ninja Turtles have been around for a while, but they aren't exactly classic literature or opera. But yeah, hollywood does a pretty good job of perpetuating this whole post modern myth that literally everything is relative and nothing is true. I pretty much cringe whenever they claim to have set a movie in an historical time and place, because they have no respect for anything but themselves. That seems to be going around actually.
great, another 80s series to be ruined by bay. he really is terrible at redisigning characters and this whole everything needs to be redesigned mentality of today is getting really old really fast. as the saying goes "if it ain't broke, don't fix it"
There's nothing bay won't ruin. I am dreading the day he decides to "interpret" Beast Wars. You know that's coming.
You know who else loves Sega....
As a longtime TMNT fan since age 3, I did face-plam on this news (even bit pissed off). However it didn't destroy my childhood because I have feel that 80's and 90's era of TMNT was enough. I mean early 2003's series was cool, but I feel that's done, it's over. Because TMNT was made for an different age, if you want to see what TMNT was all about, then you'll have to dig out old TMNT videos, comics, toys and others from 80's and 90's to see what it's all about in first place.
Movie that Bay is working on, I don't view it as a TMNT, it's more like something else that I really don't know what it is and don't want to see it. I will not support this new movie at all. I highly recommend anyone to watch original TMNT movie from 90's and first issue of TMNT (it can be a reprint) from mid 80's in order for someone to understand that it won't be possible to make it into a faithful movie by today's standard (hollywood of today).
P.S. Mr.Smith, your guts is STILL mine! As a orange werewolf, I should rip out your guts the most painful way that you'll ever imagine! I guarantee this will happen one day! I should eat it like a king.
