If the Ninja Turtles Wore Clothes, They Would All Have Popped Collars

Basically, the more trailers I see for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie, the more I realize they’d just a bunch of bros. Michelangelo, especially. And not ‘brothers’, which of course they are, but I mean popped collar, beer chugging, fraternity pledging, ultra bros. It’s kind of off-putting.

Possibly because I’m more of a geek, and reject those bro-life stereotypes. But man, this movie is clearly being made to appeal to a certain audience, and considering that same audience is pushing Transformers: Age of Extinction towards $1 billion, I have a sinking feeling that the new Ninja Turtles movie is going to be similar.

Whereas I just want Guardians of the Galaxy to succeed! Come on, people. Go see Guardians of the Galaxy multiple times!

  1. Images Unplugged

    Yeah originally it was supposed to be a darker film more like the original source material, but the later trailers have me feeling the same way. Now TBH I’m one of the millions who helped Transformers but then again I can’t help watching a good popcorn flick or B movie for nothing more than the enjoyment of things blowing up and well eating some popcorn lol.

    • So say we all, friend. I saw Transformers 4. I’m not ashamed of seeing these movies. I just super hope that Guardians can hold its own against the TMNT juggernaut since it comes out only a week afterwards.
