Is Michael Bay Ruining TMNT? - Archived

Like most of you, I grew up with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Turtles in Time was the first arcade game I ever finished (at a cost of $11!) and I watched the shows and movies religiously (on home taped VHS).

TMNT is the embodiment of my early childhood, and Michael Bay is apparently unhappy with that.

The new TMNT trailer was released today:

and I am very uncertain.


There are some good things in the trailer, but there are also lots of Michael Bay Explosions (MBEs).

And what the eff happened to the turtles? They look like ancient behemoths, not teenage mutants.

(At least they’re not (?) aliens any more.)

Also, where is the Pizza?

Did I seriously just watch 2 minutes of turtles with no Pizza? What the actual deities Michael Bay?

And Shredder. Is Shredder being played by a white guy? Seriously?

And lips? And teeth? Not just teeth, perfect teeth. Who thought that was a good idea?

I want pizza and beaks, not whitewashing and MBEs.
