New MP3 Riff Now Available! "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

It is a tale as old as time: four turtles are exposed to a mutagen and grow up to annoy the living crap out of every adult within earshot. They form distinct, marketable personalities and headband colors: nerd, joker, leader who seems to not grasp that a long sharp sword can actually cut things, and cool but rude.* Then, when a major entertainment conglomerate deems it long enough since the last movie to be financially prudent, they emerge from the sewers and onto the silver screen. Occasionally Splinter makes a funny.



This iteration was not without controversy, however! Turtles fans were outraged when Witwicky love interest Megan Fox was cast as April O’Neil. Many complained that she was completely wrong for the role, and that the only true April O’Neil was Judith Hoag, Paige Turco, Renae Jacobs, Veronica Taylor, or perhaps Sarah Michelle Gellar. Fortunately, Ms. Fox delivers a subtly nuanced performance, and is often the most realistic looking thing on screen.

Mike, Kevin, and Bill take on the winner of our “Worst Movie of 2014” poll, TMNT!

*It has come to our attention that there is a faction who interpret the theme song lyrics as “Raphael is cool but crude.” These people are literally worse than everyone who was tried at Nuremberg combined.

Indeed. It's great to see a MP3 release of a bigger budget film

I was terrified that I would have to find a used DVD for this movie, but it turns out that I already had to buy it for the Cinester Theater version.  Whew!

Cinester Theater riffed the 1990 movie (and the first sequel). The Rifftrax is for the new movie from 2014.

Wait, they REMADE this terrible movie?

Oh the terror.

Now to find this movie as cheap as possible.....well, without making a copy of the movie.... which is the worst crime of mankind according to some people.

The 90s movies are available for pretty cheap. But this one is too new, so it'll be a while before it sees the inside of a bargain bin that it deserves.

OKay, I'm not excited to see a riff of something I wouldn't have wanted to watch even when I was the age of its target audience--but then again High School Musical is one of my favorite riffs and I love the Twilight series. So if I hear that this is actually hilarious I will think about getting it eventually. For various personal reason haven't yet watched any riffs released this year.

It's funny how often the conversation goes, "Ninja Turtles? Ugh. Worst movie ever." "Did you see it?" "Ick! No!"

I'd never have seen it if not for the riff.  I've never really been a fan of the franchise.

That said:  I've seen it, and I think it was pretty damn bad.

Ah, but that's why we have Rifftrax.  :highfive:

That's why we have reviewers. We have Rifftrax because the universe is awesome.

I know *LOTS* of people who saw it and said it was the worst also. I always like to ask what the expected.
FINE

To be clear, I'm not saying it's great. People just seem to be expecting a disaster of Birdemic proportions, when it's really more of an X-Men-3-level disaster.
