Michael Bay has really crossed the line

Michael Bay is rebooting the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, but with a twist: the beloved, zany terrapins from my youth are now aliens.  Yes, aliens.

Cracked.com pretty much sums up my reaction.

I don’t think a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movie works if they’re aliens. I mean, it’s right there in the name: Mutant. It’s already the dumbest, most straight forward and explanatory title in history. It has four words that tell you the premise: They’re teenagers, they’re mutants, they’re ninjas, and they’re turtles. It explicitly spells out the only four aspects you can’t mess around with…

Seriously, it’s bad enough that this guy gets to carve a swath of butchery through all my childhood favorites, such as the abortion that was the Transformers franchise.  It’s downright criminal that he gets paid insane amounts of money to do it while more talented people are stuck making minimum wage as chief fry cook.

Can’t this guy just stick to making crap movies that don’t infringe on the cherished nostalgia of every child of the 80s?


So, to Michael Bay…
