    Default The Title NINJA TURTLES

    Paramount marketing changed the name. They made the title simple. The characters you all remember are exactly the same, and yes they still act like teenagers. Everything you remember, why you liked the characters, is in the movie. This script is being developed by two very smart writers, with one of the original creators of Ninja Turtles. They care VERY MUCH about making this film for the fans. Everyone on this team cares about the fans. Just give them a chance. Jonathan the director, is a major fan of the whole franchise. HE'S NOT GOING TO LET YOU DOWN.

    I hope everything is clear for the fans now and we can go with a free mind in the next week of P&G filming.

    Mike, I know you guys will do a great job. Hopefully, the Turtles fans are happy now and we can all focus on "Pain & Gain".

    I like just plain old 'Ninja Turles' better than 'TMNT' (the 2007 animated film). That one was alright, but having an abbrieviated title... WTF. And besides, this'll distinguish this new film from the 1990's trilogy.

    Oh, and, Mr. Bay, have fun filming!

    Ok, here is my thing....for those that remember the original TMNT Comics written and inked by Eastmand and Laird....every movie and cartoon since then has not done them justice in any way shape or form. The comics did not depict the turtles as the joke cracking fun loving type. As far as I am concerned, this reboot can only help my feelings towards how Hollywood has treated this franchise. I would like to see more input from the creators of TMNT, but I don't know if they even own the rights anymore.

    I know many people have said this will destory their memories of the turtles....well, hollywierd already did that for us ORIGINAL FANS of the comic, I say go for it, but try not to make it a comedy. Go read some of the original comics, not that cartoonish crap that came out when the movies were popular, and forget that crappy cartoon. To this day I regret selling off those comics, but I needed the money.

    The problem is, when most people think of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, that "crappy cartoon" you're referring to is what's going to come to everyone's mind. In fact, it wasn't long ago when I learned that it was based on a comic book.

    With that mind, the upcoming reboot is most likely going to draw much of its inspiration from the cartoon. Because that's what everyone remembers!!! It's what I remembered when I had a few episodes on VHS. Imagine if they just followed the comic books. "What? No 'kowabunga dude?' No pizza? These are not the fun turtles I remembered!!!" Personally, I'd more pissed about that than the whole alien controversy.

    Don't forget guys, Paramount needs to market this movie to kids too. Dark and gritty may not be an option.

    The 2003 series, was much closer to the comics, and I loved it. The Turtles barley ever said kowabunga, or ate pizza, and I ended up liking it more than the old series. I don't get why you have to make stuff goofy, and stupid to appeal to kids. Batman Begins was dark and gritty, and still did well. It managed to get a PG-13 rating, without having Batman dress in a blue costume, and have BAM! and POW! appear on screen ever time he hit someone.

    Its funny that they are getting a lot of publicity over this. It would be even more funny if this turned out to be one of those "lie rumors" Michael Bay tries to implant.
