Another TMNT Movie?!?!
I was a teen when I discovered the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) at my local comic-book shop. It was issue number one with it’s odd format and ultra-violent content. I fell in love. Every month as I went to see my comic-book guy I would pick up a copy of TMNT along with Cerebus the Aardvark and Savage Sword of Conan. I was in nerd heaven.
Some of the best moments of early TMNT history were found in issues like Donatello: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Fugitoid, and of course Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #8 where we got to see Cerebus the Aardvark team up with the turtles. The stories slowly petered out over the years but that first two years of TMNT was awesome beyond belief.
Some years later I heard there was a TMNT cartoon and my sister was raving about it like it was the greatest thing on Earth. I had to see it. When I did I was so disgusted that I must have screamed at her for an hour.
Eventually they made a movie and it was nearly as crappy as the cartoon. I gave up on TMNT except as a passing fancy from time to time when I would play the TMNT RPG by Palladium Games. As you can see I am very skeptical about the latest installment into the TNMT franchise. I am hopeful that it will remain true to the classic comic-book but I suspect that it will be another rehashing of the horrifying cartoon series. Here is the trailer, you decide.
