Actually I'm more frustrated that Michael Bay is in charge of it, rather than the fact that the origin of the turtles might be changed.

Yes, that's the heart of the issue. Take away Bay's name, the project has much more appeal.

Micheal Bay is the new Uwe Boll.

Going out of his way to make improvements that nobody wants.

Sounds cool to me.

But, I don't think every movie project should be a rehash of the source material. Well really I believe NO movie project should be a rehash of the source material, but should use it as inspiration and do something new with it.

(Then again, I'm not a huge TNMT fan.)

The last movie is the only one you need to see. It was really good. The other movies... AWFUL.

There was an animated series in the early 2000's that stayed pretty close to the gritty books. but most of turtleland has been pretty kidtastic.

Baby turtles that got into some radioactive goo is part of what made TMNT cool. "Mutant" was part of the appeal. If they're going to be ninjas from outer space, what does "turtles" even have to do with it?

... and Michael Bay?

It was on shirt.woot, but I don't think it is available anymore. It is called "The epic begins" so maybe that will help you find one.

Awful? Awful? I think you need to look at that star power of those movies. Vanilla Ice. Corey Feldman. Kevin "Big Sexy" Nash. Thats how you make a movie Michael Bay.


There was a pretty good animated movie I saw on Cartoon Network a year ago or so. It was a crossover, so you had the 2000s turtles, the late 80s/early 90s turtles and at the very end they had the b&w Laird/Eastman turtles.

Is his name a verb now?

e.g "[This classic story] has now been Michael Bayed?"

You probably don’t know me but I did some voice work on the first set of movies that you are starting to talk about sodomizing, I know believing in mutated talking turtles is kinda silly to begin with but am I supposed to be led to believe there are ninjas from another planet? The rape of our childhood memories continues.

-Robbie Riss wrote in a letter to Bay that he posted online (via TMZ).

This sucks. shake

Transformers was a travesty. Mutant is in the name of the turtles. What's next? Elderly Pirate Alien Turtles? Shredder could be a captain for the East India Trading Company!

The thing that sucks most about this is that the change makes absolutely no sense. I can't think of one logical reason why to make this change.

The ooze makes sense from a sci-fi perspective and fit the turtles personality, universe, and style (not to mention their name "mutant"). If they are now aliens everything will have to be changed about them or at least explained in a really different way. And for what?! How is it better?!

This is lame sauce! shake
