I'm gonna try out this whole blogging thing.
thanks to some not-so-subtle prodding from my friends (I'm looking at you daveyyojimbo, mob), i will try to be your geek headquarters for all kinds of stuff. I'll cover comics, movies and TV, books, and give my unwanted opinion every so often. so bear with me as i learn this stuff on the fly. I'll take any tips or help i can get.
okay...first up, the new TMNT movie.
i like the turtles, i do, but this film left me a little cold. let me state for the record that i applaud the use of CGI for a turtles movie. i even like that they resemble the comic versions a bit (except for the color coded masks). they even have the voice characterizations right, and they left out repeated uses of "COWABUNGA!!!!". this movie tried to use a little bit of everything from all versions of the turtles (movies, cartoons, comics, etc.). they did not use the movie to retell the origin of the turtles for the millionth time. i swear, their origin is as well known as superman's. or spider-man's...
who knows...I'm probably in the minority about the movie. i did like it, but maybe i was expecting more. i hope the sequel will be better. they at least set it up so that shredder will return. he was always the best villain for the turtles...well, except for vanilla ice! "ninja... ninja... RAP!!!"
