    We have both fart and boob jokes in the latest TV spots (i'll post the links as soon as I have access to my always less awkward desktop compüter), with many childhoods raped/ruined. I guess the childhoods of nostalgic neckbeards never involved laughing at fart and boob jokes.

    I think the only potential problem to such a preposterously awesome concept is the sheer realism of the visual effects. Sometimes, it becomes creepy like in The Polar Express.

    What do you think, @Lexicon?

    In the original comic, the turtles were explicitly trained to kill Shredder. Then, Leonardo gutted Shredder with a sword and offered him the chance to kill himself with honor. He kinda didn't, and he ended up getting his ass blown up with a bomb. And resurrected later, sort of, by worms. Kinda different in tone from the 80s cartoon.

    So I'm sure that fans of the original Eastman and Laird comics could've been as pissed off about the 80s cartoon as those who were fans of the 80s cartoon are about this movie.

    latest review quip:

    The way people have been talking about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, you'd think Michael Bay directed it. After seeing it, you may wish he had. I did.
    I dunnno, dude. It ain't looking good.

    The fans who got an early screening didn't seem to hate it. I think that whether or not it's a bad movie, there were still a lot of anti-Bay politics at work amongst critics and bloggers that try to be critics, just like Trans4mers, which I think should have been in the 40-50% range, and Pain and Gain, which was a pretty damn good movie (should have been in the 80% range).

    I wish they would cover TMNT in Cinefex. The performance capture is supposedly more sophisticated than what we saw in DOTPOTA. I would've loved to see the front cover be of the elevator beatboxing sequence. Right, @Lexicon?

    We'll see what happens. GotG had reviews out a week ahead of time -- some of that no doubt self-promoted, but they had the strength of support. With TMNT, the more reviews that trickle out, the worse the ratings get.

    Is it better than "The Purge"?
    That's what I want to know.

    Looking forward for it.

    I read a while back that the director was initially planning the Turtles to be aliens rather than mutations caused the alien technology on normal Turtles. Apparently the hardcore fans were furious. I on the other hand liked the idea of four lonely people having hopes of returning to a home planet full of their own.

    I have read the first 4 (or three) original comics and absolutely loved it. I was shocked by the seriousness of the comics, the realistic action and the violence.

    The 1990s (or was it the 1980s) cartoon though was famous/popular and brought a vast audience to the series it was an insult to the originals when compared.

    I dunno, @Jennifer, but it is better than Into the Storm (a whopping 6%, so far). I almost might have to see this one first.

    A friend here yesterday said, "I want to see that Storm movie," and I had just run across it a few days ago but hadn't even heard of it until this week (BAD SIGN)... it stuck in my head due to the tornadoes and also due to it starring Thorin Oakenshield and Lori Grimes. (And maybe if it had had a dragon in it and a bunch of zombies, it might have done better!)

    When I saw the score earlier, it was 0% so I guess it's been improving.
