Like, totally major bummer, dudes! The Jasons take on the Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014). They discuss the film being a reboot of the 1987 "Turtles" cartoon show, who this movie could possibly be aimed at, plot holes, character motivations, edits and re-writing your script mid-shoot, William Fitchner and the Shredder, Megan Fox, why is Will Arnett in this movie?, bizarre geography, character design, inter-species romance, improbable finales, and more!
Wish I could say I was surprised here. Like, okay, it’s better than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III, but pretty much everything is better than TMNT 3. For the kind of money they spent, shouldn’t the goal be slightly higher than “be slightly better than one of the worst movies ever made”?
Just watch the Nickelodeon version, folks. Still the best example of Turtle media out there.
Oh, and don't forget to check out our coverage of the original Turtles live-action trilogy here!
