Michael Bay is at it again–ruining my childhood heroes. A few months ago I saw Transformers part 4 and I swear it was the same movie as part 3 which was the same movie as part 2 which was the same movie as part 1. Mr. Bay needs to put down Transformers and slowly back away.
I’m a lifelong Ninja Turtles fan. I had a childhood full of the TV cartoon, figurines, tshirts, and of course, the movies. I couldn’t help but take a long lunch break and see the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie on opening day. Did I like it? Yes. Did I love it? No. And it is Michael Bays fault!
Now, Michael Bay didn’t actually direct the movie but he was the producer, which means he probably had a say in who was going to direct the movie. He picked, Jonathan Liver-Face (or something like that). It doesn’t matter what his name is because nobody knows who he is. If you check out his IMDB profile, he’s done nothing noteworthy. Why would you place such a precious franchise like the Ninja Turtles in his hands? This guy did Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the movie, not the actual massacre).
Forget about Liver-face. He doesn’t matter because this movie has Michael Bay’s fingerprints all over it.
Here are my takeaways:
Mr. Bay needs to stop putting hot chicks in movies just for eye-candy.
Speaking of hot chicks, Dear Megan Fox….please go away forever. Can’t she find a job elsewhere? She is not a good actress.
The movie’s back story was as weak as Michael Bay’s little sister.
The four turtle characters save this movie. Awesome CGI. Great action. Hilarious dialogue. (I’m hoping for a sequel that doesn’t contain the words Michael nor Bay in the credits)
If you grew up loving the Ninja Turtles GO SEE THIS MOVIE and you will
love it….I mean, like it.
If you can’t name all four turtles without Google’s help. Skip it and go see Guardians of the Galaxy.
