    Oh, I see. I didn't know when they went their separate ways. I read they didn't like Bepop and Rocksteady, so that's why they weren't in the second film. I wasn't sure if that was just something they didn't like about the cartoon and thus didn't have it in the film.

    I know Laird was involved with the 2k3 toon and it that's why it turned out well. I still feel it and the first film are a good template of what can be done with the new film as far as tone goes. TMNT seemed to try to do that. I stopped watching early on with Fast Foward. Don't know how it ended up. Same with Back to the Sewer.

    TMNT deserves it's own forum. This is too huge for just a couple of threads.

    I think TMNT was a GREAT movie. Second best incarnation of the Turtles in film or TV, IMO. Unfortunately it suffered from being made by an unknown animation studio and a new villain no one had ever heard of.

    But IMO it does the best job of making the Turtles their own. In the original film, Donnie was a bit too much like Mikey, and Leo was insufferable at times. But TMNT did them all perfectly.

    I hated TMNT's animation but that's just me. It was okay though the story could have go down a different direction.

    I think it's should have it's own section :up:


    Fans should also be vocal if they have a valid concern. Last time fans were vocal , Michael Bay removed the twins from Transformers 3 , I believe.


    At some point they definitely need to bring in Casey Jones.


    You would have to get a lot of people to do that for it to truly work. I think the script probably revolves so much around their space origin that they would have to scrap everything. What are the chances they would do that?

    It didn't have the polish of Pixar, that's for sure. But I'd rank it close to some of Dreamworks' stuff from the time.

    I liked it it a lot. I thought it would've been better to have used some other villian or one who truly was one. I liked the animation, but saw it would've been great if they had a bigger budget. I liked the turtle designs and how each one was slightly different like Raph having the biggest muscles or Leo standing a little bit taller than the rest. Same with their faces. The humans were ok. I really loved that they got actual voice actors for the turtles at least. Didn't see much need for "celebs" or whatever as the humans.

    Plus, they gave us this...

    That comment by Eastman also solidifies that Liebesman did get the job and is already past "final negotiations" as I and others suspected.

    Laird has been snarky ever since Paramount/Nickelodeon acquired the property.

    But on the same token, Eastman is actively involved with the property at this point with the comics, so he's not the most unbiased source. Though I do hope he's being sincere.

    Yea. I don't think he's a terrible choice. Far from my number 1 choice. But he's not terrible.

    I was surprised how well the cgi looked in TMNT (2007). I think it would of been cool to see a sequel to that even though I'm glad they are returning to live action.

    It was such a great scene. The close up on their eyes before the fight is my favorite part.

    I too wanted a sequel and the hint of Karai being Shredder was nice. Well, I think that was the hint anyway.

    The Turtles have evolved a lot since the early comics. Hell, what made them world famous was the eighties cartoon, followed by the nineties movie. So, obviously the creators, created them, but a lot of the franchise's success is the work of other people as well.

    According to collider.com, a site that I really like, they heard its way better than the first 'Clash'.

    love, love, LOVED the TMNT animated movie. absolutely love the set up of the tention between raph and leo and the pay off of the fight. the action is top class and I even liked the chessy plot of finding the 12 beasts. I love this far more than I liked the original live action movie but the turtles move and fight like I imagine them to move and fight

    'THAT' is how I imagine the turtles to move and only the animated movie has given me what I want

    I also really enjoyed TMNT 07. I thought it was a very well done movie and was pleasantly surprised by it.

    Personally I didn't like TMNT all that much.

    And yeah Turtles definitely deserves their own forum here.

    What if scientists extract 4 eggs from an Alien planet.. They hatch into 'normal' turtles!! Only to show human qualities as they rapidly excel!!? Something goes wrong at labs, they get set free, an old ninja looks after them and guides them? Splinter is human! but is known as a 'rat' as a bit of a bum living rough! He has a beard, long hair pony tail, kinda whiskers in his beard! He has history with shredder and the foot clan? That I could accept!

    You know what bothers me about a lot of the art posted in the precursor to this thread? Most of it is just convoluted, amped up, 'roid freak versions of TMNT characters because that's what all the Red Bull swilling freaks are into. Same with the attempts at "realistic" portrayals of the Turtles. Why? It takes away from the charm of them IMO.
