I don't understand why everyone is so angry about this....

a.) He changed bumble bee into a camero in transformers. His story change decisions are defaulted to shit in my opinion. No need to look any further into anything he did from that point forward.

b.) It's a ninja turtles movie. Find me anyone that liked any single one of these movies beyond the first one, & you've got a point. Hell, can you even tell me what the plot of the 2nd or 3rd one was?

Ninja turtles movies are garbage by default. Let Michael Bay fuck it up. Who cares?

Clearly people care - so kindly take your meta hating out of here... I have much angst and foaming at the mouth ranting to do about this... and yes.. the third plot was Turtles in Time: I had the game. The second movie had mega shredder in it. |P

Sorry.

Everyone I know hated the sequels. I didn't see a point to getting all built up about another one.

The same reason why Christmas shellacks on the 1950's charm each year with little deviation - nostalgia. Except for that it's those pesky baby boomers... for this it's me.

shredder finds the last can of ooze and uses it to create toka and razor. keno and raph infiltrate the foot clan while the other turtles find a new headquarters in the subway station, raph is caught, keno tells the turtles, they are led to a trap. they escape, formulate an antidote out of donuts, and neutralize those two big dumb idiots during a vanilla ice song. after getting knocked out by a fucking keytar, shredder uses the leftover ooze on himself, creating SUPER SHREDDER. but because shredder is dumb he takes out the dock and ends up smashing himself. so dumb. then splinter says 'go ninja go ninja go' and they all laugh hysterically.

DON'T FUCK WITH MY NINJA TURTLES NUMBER TWO.

also, the difference is when he changes bumblebee into a camaro, he didn't change the POINT of bumblebee, which is that he was still a protector. (he did fuck up the point with countless other robots though so i guess it's a wash). when you change the origins from MUTANTS to ALIENS, you're really really fucking up the point. (although maybe it's just related to krang in some way and he is just talking bullshit)

Sorry, that makes no sense at all. Have you seen Japanese entertainment?!? Anything can be a ninja Japan! Robots, undead, high school girls, demons, sometimes all at the same time.

I found pretty good link for TMNT in Japan. If the word "mutant" is dropped, it would really only be through translation ambiguity. That they didn't actually care about the reference.

There is nothing that can't be done in anime. Things that most non Japanese would find profoundly offensive are common. The idea that something would be changed due to an offensive nature is absurd.

Anything that wasn't Eastman & Lair was just queer.

  • Announce the sequel
  • Forget the plot, and get Vanilla Ice on board
  • ???
  • Profit!

One had a female turtle appear for some reason which I can't remember, the other they travelled in time for some reason which I can't remember. They are really memorable...

edit: Apparently the reason for TMHT was because we Europeans were scared of exposing children to the word ninja and also nun chuks

The female turtle was in the TV show... Venus de Milo. Personally I was against it because I prefer my fanfic to be based on inter-species erotica and not among dirty mutants.

TMNT was one of my favorites.

I probably wouldn't have watched it if they were aliens instead of mutants.

I do like movies that have no plot and explode explode.
Like not love.

Although, I think if Ghost Busters was remade to Alien Busters with the exact same crew of busters as the original there almost wouldn't be a Ghost Busters fan that wouldn't be upset or at least irritated.

I think Ctrl+Alt+Delete might be on to something... I could see myself buying a ticket to this movie:
