I don't watch Trailers online, but I'll catch the Turtles trailer when I go see Ironman 3. Ultimately I have low expectations for the film but I imagine it could be entertaining, and worst case scenario it brings more attention to the brand.

For the record, actually the Nick Cartoon is better than the preceding film, where the Turtles had weird tension to their muscles. The nick series is, well, the polar opposite of the designs of the current film.

Really the best Turtles material right now is the IDW comic series.

... Okay, I actually grinned at seeing the actual Turtles in action.

Plus the end of the trailer actually got a laugh out of me.

Even if Mikey looks like Shrek underneath his eye-bandana.

I like the grotesqueness, and it was kinda funny.

Hopefully it leans more on cheese rather than DARK EDGINESS.

I almost feel like they're trying to pretend the movie is more grimdark than it is.

Lets eat the ground together. Lets all eat dirt. It's so earthy and flavorful.

I don't know what to think.
On the one hand, Michael Bay.
On the other, that last gag genuinely got a laugh out of me.
On the other other hand, the Year One trailer also got a laugh out of me and that turned out to be the worst film in the history of the world.
AND SUCH

I was never into TMNT, so I'm pretty neutral about this.

Plus the end of the trailer actually got a laugh out of me.

Yeah, that was easily the best part. Even if some aspects of the production are causing fans to panic, maybe they will focus on strengths like this and pull off at least an entertaining product.

Am I a bad person for finding this picture so hilarious? (look at the release date)

[spoiler][/spoiler]

Also, movie debuts tonight. And according to RottenTomatoes, it blows.  :P

Rotten Tomatoes gives Indiana Jones and The Crystal Skull a 78% percent fresh rating. And it gives K-PAX a 40%.

Rotten Tomatoes is a website you can look at on the internet.

I saw it Thursday. I was one of maybe eight people in the theater.

It does blow. But nowhere near as bad as I would've thought.

[Spoiler]
- Splinter and the turtles are lab experiments by the Foot to create an antidote for a gas they were planning to disperse over the city.
-April's dad catches wind, destroys the lab and April saves Splinter and the turtles.
-The mutagen starts working. Splinter finds a "How to Ninja" book in the sewer and teaches the turtles after he learns himself.
-The foot clan only fire guns wildly, they're basically just terrorists and could be called anything because there is nothing ninja about them.
-You never see Shredder's real face.
-Shredder says, "Tonight, I dine on turtle soup." before donning the armor.
-Mikey hits on April constantly. Penis jokes occur.
-April is a moron. She spends the beginning of the movie trying to convince people the vigilantes attacking the Foot are turtles like people will not throw her into a psych ward for doing so.
-Instead of Casey Jones, we get a guy twice Megan Fox's age whose only purpose is to ogle Megan Fox and freak out about turtles.
-The Shredder armor is slightly less ridiculous in motion than in pictures, but still overdone. The Shredder barely does anything except fight Splinter and the turtles and bitch at people off camera.
[/spoiler]

Granted, Ninja Turtles isn't fine art but just stick with the original movie. If you feel like seeing it, go see Guardians of the Galaxy and sneak into Ninja Turtles after.

I still might see it. Like you said, it's not fine art. Do they remix the theme song from the 80s cartoon for the credits?

They apparently did at some point, according to the credits, but I didn't hear it. As for credit music, though:

A question: If you know a movie is likely to be bad, why still go to it?

Because a friend of mine scored tickets for free and asked if I wanted to go. Only reason I went.
