I don’t consider the ones made a few years ago as cannon. As far as I’m concerned, those took place in an alternate, unrelated universe.I thought the O.G. Henson one at least was accurate in showing the backstory but I haven't watched one since Vanilla Ice's last ditch effort.
'Hey, there's a bunch of huge mutant animals fighting in the middle of my show. Should we panic or come up with a new song for them to perform a synchronized dance to?'
I think the first one had the potential based on its audience. Secret of the Ooze got pretty exaggerated comedy though.I really wish they would have made the lice action ones from the 90s as darks as they were originally supposed to be. Could you imagine Christopher Nolan with these movies?!
Wasn’t in Secret of the Ooze? Or was that just a bastardization of him?Donatello is the best turtle, and it isn't even close. (Oddly, NOT even close to the best artist of the namesakes.)
Krang didn't even make an appearance in the live-action movies (apparently, according to Google, until the second of the Megan Fox jigglefests). How could they be in the same universe? Apparently same with Bebop and Rocksteady. Those three characters couldn't have gone unnoticed - they were major allies of Shredder in the cartoons. Has to be a different universe.
I had to google that, because the last time we watched any of the OG TMNT movies was trying to get my little boy into them a couple of years ago. It looks like Professor Perry (who I don't really remember) was supposed to be a bastardization of him (item 1): LINKWasn’t in Secret of the Ooze? Or was that just a bastardization of him?
Their office is near mine and about 3-4 times a year we do some work with them.Those are quite cool. Everything Sideshow/Hot Toys does is.
Wowsers. I would love to see that. I eat that type of stuff up. While I currently have ZERO hot toys, I'd own 1,000 of them if my wife and finances let me, including every single life-size replica they make. I'm just stoked she allowed me to buy a legacy lightsaber from Galaxy's edge this past fall, which is automatically now one of my favorite possessions. I also really enjoyed checking out Avengers Station in Vegas while I was there where they had Iron Man's Hall of Armor, as well as a bunch of other sweet stuff. Lets just say my wife dropped me off for a few hours on that one to graciously let me geek out all by myself.Their office is near mine and about 3-4 times a year we do some work with them.
If you told me I could spend an hour in their office, or an hour at Star Wars Galaxy's edge with no lines/crowds...it'd be a touch choice. You especially would love one room where they have 9 exact replica full size Iron Man suits. It's really unbelievable.
I literally can quote every line in that movie before they say it and I'm not even remotely exaggerating"Forgiveness is Divine, but never pay full price for late pizza." - my wife gets sick of me saying this every time we order pizza.
The original TMNT movie is amazing, and I watched it with my 9 year old recently, and it has aged incredibly well.
This is great read if you have time:
No one believed in a movie about four overgrown turtles who are trained in martial arts and named after Italian artists. Then it made more than $200 million, and launched a nationwide phenomenon.www.theringer.com
Raphael is the best. Nothing gets done without him.
Looking back the 1990 movie is so far and away the best one. I've never heard anyone argue otherwise. I'm pretty sure the combat and story were stripped down and made more "kid friendly" for the 2nd due to concerned parents complaining about the 1st.I think the first one had the potential based on its audience. Secret of the Ooze got pretty exaggerated comedy though.
Being a kid at that time there was something pretty magic about that first TMNT movie and the first Batman movie.Looking back the 1990 movie is so far and away the best one.

As a kid I loved TMNT 2. It was the only one available to rent at the Casey's in town, but if given the option I probably would have gone for 2 more often than 1. It's obvious that the 2nd one was targeted more at kids than the 1st.
And since the TMNT cartoons and movies came to existence primarily to sell toys it makes sense that this happened (no matter how unfortunate and unromantic it is to think about).
