Things were going great, Bad Robot is will eventualyl be working on a Samurai Jack movie, a third Ghostbusters movie was in the works, and Michael Bay was hearalding a TMNT movie....and now the turtles are goign to be aliens.  Yet another small piece of my childhood is now gone forever.

Jimmy Kimmel which I rarely watch but by chance stumbled on it last night had a funny piece about this in specific but about fanboy whining overall. It was pretty funny IMO because it resonated

So folk are mad because they're making changes about mutated turtles that practice karate, live in a sewer and eat pizza. Well it was funny last night

Violator: Haha! That's what I was thinking too. Especially because his grammar and spelling is terrible.

Oh yeah the remedy in the bit for all this whining was getting a pill called "Alife"

First, Bay gives us the over-blown, loud, and crappy Transformer movies, now he's going to ruin another classic 80's franchise and screw with TMNT. The guy is a hack, and he sucks. So will this reboot. Mark my words!

Why would being aliens make them funnier, edgier, or smarter at all? What is un-interesting about a backstory includinga  Rat who learned Ninjitsu by watching its owner, and Turtles mutated from toxic ooze? Does that make Superman more intersting? being an alien? Not really. If the ooze itself had an alien origin, that would be a decent middle ground. This is the problem with ideas being proprietary: somebody wrote the basis for this errant treatment, and a studio paid for it. Now they are stuck with it. Now a project is being built around a porrly testing concept, and to give up the concept is to throw away all the jobs and contractsm already set. Even if Bay didn't like the idea anymore: "Teenaged Alien Ninja Turtles" he can't change it now, can't stop boosting for it -now the fate of many rests on its success.

for  the last time the ooze was alien origin and at one time in the short lived tv. show TNMNT they even had a female TMNT that had a spaceship and came to rescue the POWERANGERS,  look it up no joke.  so you se it's not the first time they have been playing with the alien backround..there are no real TNMNT, fans if you don't know this...........

 Once again Hollywood can't come up with anything original so they have to put their dirty, sticky hands on classics and mess them up.

 I don't know why people are getting upset about this. I don't see people having fits about Christopher Nolan's Batman films. Sure they're awesome movies, but there are a lot of things in those movies that deviate from the source material. But no one seems to mind.

The original TMNT comics were originally written for adults as a satire of popular comics of the time (the late '80s).  They were teenagers like the Teen Titans, they were mutants like the X-Men, they were ninjas like a bunch of different characters and they were turtles to make them wierd.  Their origin was a satire of Daredevil and a variety of kung fu movies.  The tone of the original was very anxty and adult.

The first cartoon series changed them drasticly.  It wasn't till then that they developed a pizza obsession and surfer dude accents.  They became the TMNT babies in essence with very silly villians and stories. 

The first movie was kind of a synthesis of the two versions with the situation and origin from the original comic series but the characters were much more kid friendly, ala the cartoon.

The Turtles have changed so much over time that there really isn't a "pure" version of them  So this Woman-child is cool with changes if Bay wants to make some.  But I still wonder why.  There is nothing wrong with the original origin so why fix what isn't broken?

As long as Vanilla Ice isn't involved...
