    First one not bad.

    by imagin78

    I actually think the first Ninja Turtles movie is pretty good. For what it is worth, Kevin Smith thinks it is one of the best comic adaptations. <p> The second is pretty bad what with the Ninja Rap and all. <p> The third is such a pile of shit. Late critic Joel Siegel actually had the gaul to compare it to Kurosawa. Kurosawa!

    ernie reyes jr?

    by Bouncy X

    oh, so he's involved again. this will make 3 TMNT movies for him since he was Donatello's "stunt double" in the first and of course played the awesome and cool pizza delivery kid in part 2.

  • July 13, 2009, 7:03 p.m. CST

    What?!

    by ltgalloway

    The first TMNT is still a favorite of mine, and the second one is also remembered fondly. Really hope the new one turns out well, and stays away from the G.I. Joe film's style.

    This is a bad, bad idea

    by SoylentMean

    The TMNT movie was pretty ok, with some disparity between the quality of animation for different characters, yet I thought it showed promise (and it hinted at Shredder's return). The live action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movies of the early 90's were accepted by the youth of the time because CGI hadn't become the norm. Now, if kids see grown men dressed up as turtles, well there will be laughter. Probably some baseball bats as well.

    You mean like, A José Canseco bat? I hope no one payed money for it. Also, practical effects can still work if given the proper care. So lets assume they won't dust off the same suits from the 80's. Maybe they'll have some moderate cg added in. Hey, Where the Wild Things Are looks pretty good from what I've seen so far and those are suits too.

    by darthvedder81

    Even if you didn't like it, it still was-as Ebert put it-the best possible Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie. I hope they retain the gritty but fun tone of the first movie but I won't hold my breath. It will be marred by conspicuous Matrix wirework bullshit and shakey cams.

    by Nasty In The Pasty

    The whole late 80's "surfer dude" asthetic from the original animated series has been poisoning the concept as kiddie krap ever since. Not that I need a Dark Knight-style TMNT movie, but those original comics had a pretty impressive mixture of seriousness with humor that rose naturally from the characters and situations, instead of "PIZZA DUDE!" bullshit. Yeah, I liked the cartoon series as a kid, and enjoyed the first movie, but by the second film, I had already essentially outgrown the "kiddie" version of the Turtles. A PG-13 Turtles flick would match the original comics' level of violence while still allowing kids to see it.

    This event might be a bit of fun, but ultimately you are not going to be cast as a somebody in the movie you are going to be cast as a nobody... worse than a nobody - 'a minion'.<p> I don't think I could live with being a minion in a Turtles movie. Telling the grandkids - "That's me, look quick, see that guy in the black hood being kicked by the twat in the turtle suit. There."<p> "But granpappy, you were only onscreen for .5 of a second."<p> "I know. I know. But that is the shame that 'a minion' must live with."

    What happened to John Woo's Turtle movie?

    by Geomancer21

    CGI/Live action hybrid. With JW's fighting style? that would have been awesome.<BR><BR>But yeah, bring on the Live Action Technodrome. I've been waiting to see that one eyed tank bitch tearing ass through times square since the first movie was announced.

    Nasty In The Pasty, you kinda already got Eastma/Laird

    by MurderMostFowl

    The first TMNT movie was nearly panel for panel the origin story/shredder story. Yeah the tone was lightened a little, but far less than the cartoon was. You have to remember, the cartoon was at its peak when that movie came out... that they were able to tell the original story at all was a miracle.<BR><BR>To your point though, it would be nicer to see a more serious story line, with consequences , blood etc... I used to be solidly in your camp on this, but now I'm looking back and saying... well, TMNT isn't exactly shakespeare.... maybe going the darker route will damage the story.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time

    by turketron_2

    The movie. Since time travel and alternate realities are all the rage now, just do the turtles in time thing like from the video game. NEON NIGHTRIDERS.

    FUck, I forgot about the Third movie... NO MORE BACK TO THE PAST

    by turketron_2

    For the turtles, but the turtles in the future fighting all kinds of crazy shit from Dimension X would be cool.

  • July 14, 2009, 8:34 a.m. CST

    and yes, i realize i'm probably shitting on the comic book fans

    by bringing up storylines from the videogames and cartoon.

    turketron, don't corrupt the Turtles 'universe' dude.<p> The Turtles 'world building' has been a carefully crafted work of art, with a depth and subtlety that makes the Turtles, Shredder, and even the minor subsidary characters, live and breathe.<p> By bringing in storylines from the video game and cartoon you risk disturbing the space/time continuum of the Turtles universe. Why would you risk that man? Why??<p> WHYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!

  • July 14, 2009, 12:24 p.m. CST

    don't make it a remake! make it a sequel to the first one!

    by ironic_name

    elias kotaeas! judith hoag! corey fucken feldman! <P> acknowledge that they're older and just call them "ninja turtles"!

    but they'd have to really use their weapns. Give me blood. Give me one of them turtles eviscerating The Tick. He could put his guts back into his stomach cavity with a SPOOOOOOOOON!!

    Will we finally get Krang, the Technodrome,

    by ThePilgrim

    and Shedder as the main villains to deal with, along with Bebop and Rocksteady. <P> They couldn't even give us that in the original movie... 1 was about Shredder and the Foot. 2 delt with Bebop and Rocksteady wannabes, 3 was plain out fucked. In the end we never got Krang, or the Technodrome.

    Fresh Prince's "Uncle Phil" is Shredders voice

    by ThePilgrim

    That shit makes me laugh. Not exactly James Earl Jones epic. Keith David should be the new voice of Shredder. He's got a seriously cool voice.

    July 18th? Hey that's on my birthday. Am i thinking of auditioning? Hell no...i've got better things to do on that day or with my life than waisting my time with that crap...

    Leo cut Shredder's head off in the new cartoon

    by Geomancer21

    Gotta give it props for that. And that whole ending to that ep was all kinds of fucked up. Not to mention the badass three parter that was essentially a reworking of the first movie.
