I have been following a thread in IMDB talking about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles “Reboot”. As a 32 year old man I shouldn’t care but TMNT was my childhood! I still know the words to the theme tune and the words to ” Turtle Power” (the Hip Hop Song in the first Film by “Partners in Kryme”).
Unfortunately Michael “Sodding” Bay is directing it….sigh. Now i’m not the worlds biggest Michael Bay hater. He did “Bad Boys” and “The Rock” for example! He’ll never be high brow but if he wants he can make an entertaining flick!
The thing about him is that he just doesn’t give a fuck. I loved Transformers as a kid and was excited to see it made into a live action film with todays CGI technology. I let the first film slide as it looked pretty cool when the Transformers ..er transformed…. It was unforgivable that Bumblebee wasn’t a VW Beetle but then Megan Fox is hot so ok that balances out. What didn’t balance out is that the story, for a kids film or otherwise, made no sense and when fighting happened you actually could not tell who was hitting who.
So Transformers 2, still with Bay and still with Megan “The” Fox. So good start but then ohhh lordy what is happening in this film? What is going on? Why is anyone doing what they are doing? Oh there’s John Tuturro cool… Oh i see Megan is bending over again. Who is hitting who now? How long is this action bit dragging out for? How long is this film? TWO AND A HALF HOURS?!?
I didn’t see the third one not just because Megan wasn’t in it!
Now he’s turning his hands to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Except no he isn’t. From what i read yesterday ah is changing the whole story so that they will be aliens. Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles. What a twat! Why change it? What is the point you massive massive git! I’ll tell you why! Because like i said earlier – he just doesn’t give a fuck…
