Hey, dudes. This is the one and only Mordecai the Blue Jay. Muscle Man, Skips, Pops, High-Five Ghost, Rigby, EVEN BENSON have all been asking me to talk about today's topic:
THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES!
HEROES IN A HALF-SHELL! AND MICHAEL BAY!
Michael Bay is making a new Ninja Turtles movie and is changing the backstory that involves the Turtles being aliens.
This is ridiculous. The Turtles are NOT aliens. They are baby turtles that fell down a sewer and touched a radioactive ooze that turned them into giant talking turtles that learned the art of ninjitsu from a giant, also-mutated talking rat named Splinter, and they fight a villain named The Shredder.
Look, I actually like Michael Bay. I think he's done a GREAT job with the Transformers trilogy. But that's because Bay was under strict supervision by Hasbro so he doesn't ruin the franchise (yes, I know, I know, the few exceptions being Devastator having Balls and the Skids and Mudflap, but still).
But, I don't think he has what it takes to make a Ninja Turtles movie, ESPECIALLY if he's going to make them aliens. I think the film should be directed by either Stephen Spielberg or maybe someone with more experience, like Avengers director Joss Whedon. I mean, the alien quote seemed vague. Maybe if the radioactive Ooze comes from space, or if the Turtles come from Dimension X (a dimension from the 80's cartoon), THAT would be cool. BUT, if a shell-shaped space craft comes and 4 turtles with bug-eyes and antenna come out of it, THEN we got a problem.
Now here's Mordecai's poll of the day. What are YOUR thoughts on Teenage "Alien" Ninja Turtles?
