So TMNT is officially the 4th biggest august release of all time, made $20 million more during its opening than the studio's own projections, and it's already been confirmed for a sequel. Never bet against Ninjas.

I'm still suprised how they manage to constantly find an audience among each generation since the 80's.

All despite having been created as a parody.

This is the world we live in. This is a world where Bayformers not only makes money, it breaks records. This is a world where Adventure Time and Steven Universe exist, and are also popular.

> success =/= quality
Its a shame really - from what I've heard from pretty much every source I put any trust in, the movie is absolute shit (even for TMNT).
>>
>>64518481
TMNT was originally created to make fun of the cliches and excesses of 80s comic books. At the same time, it went so far that it came right back around and actually found an audience among the very people who those more mainstream comics were made for. The cartoon did the same thing, except it was for a younger audience. It took the silliness of 80s cartoons and intentionally amped it up to 11. Kids loved it, and as an adult you can appreciate the fact that the show was laughing at itself. The comics, cartoons and films have always been a mashup of popular cliches where you can have a laugh at them while also appreciating what makes them work.

Because people liked the previous incarnations of the turtles and neanderthals liked baysplosion movies and bandwagoners want to appear hip on all the freshest meems, it was almost guaranteed a decent audience.

Doug thought it was OK. Which I was shocked by, considering his angry rant about the movie when it was announced. He said it not a "good" movie but considering that he walked in wanting to hate it, he was surprised at how much about it he liked.

I'm actually glad this movie exists. It's going to make an excellent Rifftrax Live event!
>>
>>64521322
Rifftrax sucks. MST3K was good because they went out and found weird old movies that were perfect for the format of humor they use, and because half the charm was that the movies were old. With RIfftrax they have to do big, new, popular blockbusters that people want to see shredded, because people won't pay for Rifftrax of old obscure movies that they haven't heard of. Most of the time they end up being really boring because they don't have enough to work with. Avatar is a 3 hour long showroom floor demo for TV stores and they still had to make enough jokes to fill the entire movie.

I think that alone, more than anything else this year, is the most salt in the wound for me. HTTYD shouldn't have had to fight for success, it deserved so much more.

I swear, it was bullet point to bullet point the same movie.
April discovered by Turtles by being a little less than ninja, April meets them again in sewer, Splinter expositions backstory (in fact, he does this in BOTH movies), Foot invades layer, Splinter is hurt, one turtle or more is kidnap, rescue mission, they reunite, they make a comeback, rooftop with finale with Shredder.

It's like these guys just took bullet points from I and II and just made that into a modern movie.

Not him but RiffTrax really is a far cry from MST3K. Without the layer of abstraction that the story and puppets added, it just becomes a bunch of men in their 50s talking over movies.

This mashup culminated in a fucking awesome movie called Turtles Forever. If people haven't seen it, it's basically Crisis on Infinite Turtles. The relatively serious turtles of the 2003 series meet their goofy 80's counterparts and eventually their bloodthirsty grim n' gritty original Mirage comic book versions. The whole thing is available on Youtube, it's not optional for TMNT fans.

I think TMNT succeeded because it moved away from the parody aspects really quickly. After the first issue, and maybe the initial arc with the mousers, Eastman and Laird gradually dropped the Frank Miller dialogue and started bringing in all sorts of crazy/awesome stuff like TCRI, triceratops aliens, Utroms, and motherfuckin' Fugitoid. The parody provided a solid base but the franchise didn't really start to thrive until they left it behind and got really creative. I love the original Mirage run, E&L weren't the best artists/writers but there was just a ton of energy and love involved in every page.

Oh yeah I forgot: In America if you're white, your race "doesn't matter" and you might as well be recast as a minority race. But if you're not white, then your race is "integral" to your character and changing it would be "racist."

so he just watched the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie?
>>
>>64523618
>>64526951

The new film certainly "borrowed" plot points from the first film but the execution in the first film was a lot better. The first TMNT film was actually pretty good. The sequels, not so much. The new film, while having a similar story, loses all the charm of the original and the poignant moments of the original are drowned out by Michael Bay's trademark explosions and mindless action focus.

Not at all suggesting the first TMNT film was a great example of fine cinema, but it was a good film for the franchise. This new one not so much.

The turtles look horrible on this movie though

I like how you dumb faggots can only parrot "nostalgia" when faced with criticisms on this shitty new movie.
>>
>>64527548
You missed the point of that.
I'm saying that if people are saying the new movie is bad, then to some extent, the older movies are bad. Though >>64527326 makes some valid points.
The older movies had their share of problems, but Bay's Turtles were lacking in soul and charm. That's why I said it was meh, instead of the constant LOL IT'S SHIT FUCK YOU BAY that seems to keep popping up in these threads.
>>
>>64527326
There were barely any explosions. Michael Bay was not the director.

I could watch it for shits and giggles, and I might enjoy more than say most of the MCU films, but you expect James to be very critical about TMNT. Super Best Friends were tossed out a huge list of flaws from this film, but their rankings were pretty much the same

TMNT
TMNT2
CGI TMNT4
Bay Turtles
TMNT3

How did this garbage make so much money? It was seriously bad. When I heard that the turtles were April's pets I had to facepalm. Its just too stupid. Not to mention omitting all ties to Hamato Yoshi and as a result Splinter learning martial arts from an....abandoned text book.....ugh.
>>
>>64532515
Abandoned textbook written by Eastman and Laird. And Shredder makes fun of it.
>>
>>64531502
Actually, it might be a good opportunity for Mikey's character development if he has to get over April, as long as they don't spend too much time on it or take it too seriously.
>>
>>64532515
Because of retards who still see it despite knowing it's going to be bad like >>64520218 these retards and the retards who actually enjoyed it.

If you paid money to watch this film just to complain about it, you are part of the problem.

Grow some balls and go sneak into a showing after watching a good movie, OR fucking buy a ticket for a good movie you've already scene and then go watch this trash. That way you're not cheating the theater out of it's cut of the money, and you can give money to actual good movies.

I bet they'll make at least two more movies, the merchandising alone will make it worthwhile.

Were there shitty self-congratulatory posts like this on /co/ when the original Bayformers was a success?
>>
>>64526951
Michael Bay is literally the Uwe Boll of comic movies. Only unlike Uwe Boll, people not only eat the shit he shovels into peoples mouths, but they beg for seconds.
>>
>>64533128
>>64533138
Bay is only an executive producer on TMNT. He didn't direct. And contrary to popular belief, he was too busy directing Transformers 4 to "backseat direct" TMNT.
>>
>>64533128
"Self-congratulatory" means congratulating one's self. Is it really self-congratulatory if we didn't make the movie? Or are you implying that we are somehow taking credit for the film's success?
>>
>>64533478
That's not my point.
I'm asking if other shit cash-ins on nostalgia properties were defended this much in the past.

Liebseman's no better than Bay in the first place
>>
>>64533478
As true as that may be, this movie feels way too much like he did direct it given the sheer amounts of product placement, military hardware, and "urban youth slang". Not to mention the fact that once again the human characters take up too much of the plot and we're forced to accept the pretense of Megan Fox as an actor.

And yeah, it's TMNT and they're commercialized as fuck, but even for the franchise this was over the top.
>>
>>64533637
Aside from Humvees there really wasn't much military hardware, and Humvees are available to civilians anyway (or at least they were for a long time). There was no military in the movie at all, either. which is especially funny because Battle Los Angelis was a military movie (directed by Liebsman).
>>
How does it feel knowing Megan Fox has a high power level than you /co/?
>>
>>64533637
The only good part with Megan Fox was when she was being told by what's his face to "give audiences a little candy" translation fanservice. It felt like a neat insult at this no talent whore's career that she probably only got by giving blowjobs.

God I wanted someone to punch her during the two scenes where she screamed "Shredder!" she sounded so shrill and annoying.

Also WTF was up with that Non-Actor guy who was the scientist Shredder hired for the mutagen? He seriously sounded like he didn't want to be in the movie, like he only tolerated showing up in the whole thing just to get a pay check. Even his villain taunts were lacking in emotion ("you're cute, I could just pinch your cheeks"). Its like this guy didn't even know how to have fun with villain taunts. Even fucking Jack Nicholson knew how to ham it up as the Joker when puns and taunts came into play.
>>
I'm kind of interested in seeing the original script, or at least Sacks being Shredder. Hopefully there's bonus clips on the blu-ray
>>
>>64533864
I thought he WAS pretty hammy.
>stupid rich
>>
Would it have been better to have kept the white guy as Shredder or no?
>>
I still don't understand how THIS series of all 80s series was the one to stay alive and continually find moderate success.

I enjoy it, but it just doesn't make sense to me.
>>
>>64534724
No. The guy who they had as Shredder was badass. Also, I can't see Shredder saying "Stupid rich."
>>
>>64535213
The guy they had definitely had a shredder voice at least.

This kinda feels like they took another script and just added turtles. Like it was some generic action movie about fighting off a big bad corporation going to poison stuff. They just added turtles show up and fight every now and then in the script

This might have even been an early draft of amazing spider-man being repurposed
