My Thoughts on TMNT 2014

I reluctantly saw Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie...

I was expecting it to be totally awful... It wasn't TOTALLY awful.
But it was kind of awful...

The Turtles themselves were great...the movie surrounding them...not so great...
It was filled with plot holes, and reasons to keep Megan O'Neil around...

with that being said...typed?...

I wasn't the worst thing in the world...
Sure, it wasn't a cinematic masterpiece but it had its moments where I truly enjoyed it.

It added some elements that hadn't really been seen in other incarnations of the turtles.

and the Turtles (aside from looking like nightmare fuel) were REALLY enjoyable to watch.
They felt like the Ninja Turtles I know and love...

... then there's the Michael Bay Factor....

I had been on a "Baycott' for a while before actually seeing the movie...
Even though he only produced it... it was still a Michael Bay movie...
explosions... bad acting... cheesy jokes... attractive women for the sake of having an attractive woman... it was all there.

Watching it, it kind of felt like a Transformers Movie *cough**cough*Shredder*cough**cough*

The movie also focused too much on the human characters...
it's a Ninja Turtles Movie... they should be front and center for at least 90% of the movie.

I'm actually considering watching the already announced sequel...
no promises though...
