New TMNT Movie? Yes please.
Last summer there was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CGI movie released. It was fantastic. Even though Jenn, who I dragged along, didn’t find it that exciting, I was super-thrilled the whole way through and probably had more fun watching that movie than I had in a long time.
Maybe you guys did too, but I grew up on Ninja Turtles. I loved the show, had 3 boxes worth of toys (still have them!), and was obsessed with the movies. So of course I was excited last summer to see them come back. I was especially excited to see the movie have a darker theme with more action. The scene where Ralph fights Leo comes to mind. Sure, it was campy, but for a TMNT freak like me, I ate it up.
Now there’s rumors circulating of a new TMNT movie in the works for 2010. Early reports speculate the new film will feature live action, or CG turtles in live action. What a terrible idea. The only way TMNT should continue on is as a CG feature. There’s no need for men to waddle around in awkward rubber suits anymore.
However, these are just early rumors. According to the 5th turtle, yes a blog dedicated to Ninja Turtles, there are talks in the works, but the earliest any move will come out is 2011.
Well, in 2011 I’ll be 25. Is that too old to be psyched about Ninja Turtles?
