But I never saw Armageddon in theaters. I only ever saw it on VHS at home, so…still, it was awesome.
I wonder if it still holds up today. I’m still a huge fan of The Rock, probably the best action movie ever made. That was good era Michael Bay, as the Screen Junkies point out. Logic be damned, Armageddon is good movies.
I would be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. I couldn’t help myself. The film was too energetic to be boring, and I will forever be a lifelong fan of the Ninja Turtles. That’s not to say it wasn’t a ridiculously stupid movie. There were so many plot holes and gaps in logic that I considered making a whole List of Six out of those flubs.
But I’m a positive guy who loves everything Ninja Turtles related! With a sequel already announced, I felt like embracing this franchise and everything it has to offer!
And I’m only maybe talking about the Punk Frogs. One of the things I loved most about the Ninja Turtles cartoon in the 80s was the huge cast of fun and colorful mutants. But Michael Bay and Friends should probably stay away from adding too many new mutants to a movie franchise. So that’s out. I also probably shouldn’t request they change everything, like the stupid new take on the Turtles’ origin. We’re probably stuck with this new status quo, but it’s not so bad, as long as you just ignore it and focus on other parts of the movie.
As bad as this movie might be, we’re looking at a whole new Ninja Turtles franchise here, folks. I, for one, am going to embrace this new madness! Join me after the jump for my six suggestions for the Ninja Turtles sequel!
This isn’t your daddy’s mash-up trailer. Youtuber MrStratman7 went above and beyond with this bit of silliness. Can you tell how? It’s not that hard. My hat is off to you, you crazy Internet madman!
The first official trailer for the new Ninja Turtles movie hit the Internet today and – holy cow – it’s a game changer!
First things first, the Turtles looked pretty badass in motion. They’re big, imposing, but wonderfully animated. Did you see Leonardo? He was a god among ninjas! Though the up close look at Michelangelo’s face in the end, especially without the mask, looked really freaky. And not ‘mutant turtle freaky’, but ‘ugly giant baby face’ creepy. Still, I’m happy.
Second things second, I can’t remember the last time I saw such a ‘Michael Bay’ movie trailer. It’s insane. The music, the narration, the action scenes, ‘Michael Bay’ really has become his own style of moviemaking.
