Yeah, I don't want a planet full of turtles. The fact that the four of them are unique and isolated is part of the point.

Frankly, I'm looking forward to copious amounts of cutaways to turtle-on-turtle humping. Bay is one of those rare directors that really have their finger on the pulse of comedy.

Don't forget the ninja that carries a bola on the front of his belt so it looks like testicles.

  Something I just realized. All this negative vibes coming from this production are only going to lower expectations. Something that can only benefit how people percieve the final product. At least, those that give it an honest chance, that is.
  And since Michael Bay isn't going to be directing it himself (he will be ruining Transformers AGAIN), someone else will be. So if on the off chance this movie doesn't completely shit the bed, the real director will get that credit for making a watchable movie DESPITE Bay. Either way, Bay still is crapped upon because of his (well earned) bad reputation.

In the immortal words of South park... the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are history.

I hope there won't be a rap version of the Pizza Power song.

Well I guess the solution to getting half the title wrong is to drop half of the title! It's just "Ninja Turtles" now.


Quote from: Michael Bay
"Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE'S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN."

All things being equal, don't care about shortening the title. Changing the origin, bad. Changing the title will just help us tell it apart on the DVD shelf.

I thought it was being directed by Bay. It's not guaranteed to suck more than anything now.

Well if they are only keeping HALF the title, why are they keeping part of it that it's not, since they aren't TURTLES anymore?
