So... about that new Ninja Turtles movie trailer...

I'm in no position to criticize this new movie. My knowledge about the TMNT franchise only comes from the first live-action film, the CGI movie, the 2003 series, and bits of the comic book. I found the original concept to be incredibly silly but a whole lot of creative fun, which was probably the initial plan.
Besides switching some stuff around regarding the turtles' origins, Bay's TMNT seems like it stays close to the spirit of the original franchise. It basically amounts to a carbon copy of his Transformers movie: silly, ridiculous action with bits of humour here and there to help the medicine go down. How could you screw this up?
Well, I have watched 2 Transformers movies out of (now) 4, and let me tell you: It takes a special kind of talent to screw such a simple formula up... and in this area, Bay's the most talented worker in Hollywood I've ever seen.

But you know what? I'm not even mad, nor do I particularly care about the upcoming TMNT movie. My active rage against the modern movie industry has desolved into passive cynicism. After what they did to Transformers, the Smurfs, and the Last Airbender, why would anyone be surprised about how bad modern movies made from tv shows are?
It truly is a battle between fandoms and the general public, and let's just say fandoms rarely win fights, even amongst themselves.
