I’m coming to think that there are several ways in which Michael Bay’s Ninja Turtles could be a success. If he weaves the story intricately and logically, there might be a way to get it done. He did say that the elements of the story we love will be in play (somewhere he said that). He also didn’t mention Master Splinter from what I’ve read. Perhaps he could still be a mutant rat from Earth? I have no idea, but I’ll hold onto that ray of hope until I’ve heard confirmation otherwise. Plus, several people have pointed out a valid point - a planet full of Mikey’s, Don’s, Leo’s, and Raph’s. This seems like a good thing.
My approval of the film still hinges on three things, however. First and foremost, Master Splinter must be believable and badass, and as true to the 90’s and 2K3 story as possible.
Secondly, Casey Jones must be present, and he must be of the same level of competence and skill as his counterparts from TMNT I, III, and 2K3.
Lastly, April O’Neil must be portrayed by a competent actress. Megan Fox, while attractive, will not cut it for me. Auditions are required for her character, and ideally I’d like her to have an actress that has worked successfully in films for a notable time. April O’Neil is an amazing character and deserves at least that much respect.
If any of these three qualifications remains unmet, I shall consider the movie a massive failure.
Seriously though. Where’s that pizza guy?
Someone should make one of this scene with ‘Michael Bay’s got 30 seconds’ (Until his career crashes to an end).
“These turtles are from an alien race…”
NO. NO. NO.
They are teenage MUTANT ninja turtles. MUTANTS AND ALIENS ARE DIFFERENT THINGS!!@$@#!!! SCREW YOU MICHAEL BAY!
Your success with the Autobots and Decepticons can’t save you this time, Mr. Bay.
Your first name is too close to ‘Mikey,’ a name which you do not deserve, so I’ll leave it off. If you change your mind, I’ll use your first name again. If you don’t change your mind, I’ll get Raph to come after you. Hell, Master Splinter’d probably kill you. You’re messin’ with his kids.
Okay, I HAD to squeeze in this idea by muttcutts.
THIS. THIS is how I feel. Hahaha. I might have to do more Bay inspired butt kicking now…
Next thing you know, he’ll be trading in their bandanas for fruit hats.
“Meet Michelangelo, and his lovely bowl of oranges. Next to him, the strawberry-laden Raphael, the grape-covered Donatello, and Leonardo the Blueberry Boy.”
WHAT THE CRAP?!?!!?!?

Does anyone need/want need reaction gifs in anything less than 500px? I just thought smaller would be good for embedding them if you can’t upload it.
Also, this still isn’t the reaction I’m having to “Ninja Turtles - Aliens from Space.” Much more extreme but I’m outta gif making time for today!
Tmntgifs is the best gifmaking blog out there.
