    So, based on Mikey yelling to Leo "Where's Ralph," I'm guessing Ralph gets separated while with Leo. It'll be a different dynamic on the typical Ralph-gets-separated scenario, with the other turtles getting into trouble instead. I wonder what kind of character development will spring from that circumstance in regard to the Ralph/Leo relationship? I can see a couple different ways to go with it.

    He is correct.

    I went back and watched one of the script reviews earlier today and there was no baxter.

    Just Kraang and "Schrader".

    It really depletes the purpose of even having Shredder and the Foot Clan if all you're going to do is whitewash him into a white Army colonel named Schrader and the Foot into some elite black-ops team.

    I mean seriously... whoever came up with that idea must've been sniffing some powerful glue or something because that has got to be one of the dumbest ideas in a long history of dumb, bad ideas. :doh:

    How many Gov't military operations you know in which they wear those kinda masks? :woot:

    I personally am open to the idea, it's not like I've seen a true to comics Bane, Mandarin, Frost, and the list goes on. Didn't stop me from enjoying the films in those particular cases. They've gone ahead and changed April functions in this new cartoon series to rave reviews...

    Ironically, I did however see a accurate Megatron for all intents and purposes.

    It's not change itself that is bad, it' what the change is that seems bad to me personally.

    From what I've learned after a few years on here.
    All change is bad prior to film release. The red trunks are the most recent example.

    I'd accept "Schrader" if he's got an athletic build (plus a modernization of the classic armor), no paunch, and infiltrated the US government with his Foot Clan under Krang's orders.

    I'd actually really dislike it if Shredder works under anyone's orders. He needs to be the head of his organization and take orders from no one.

    I'm just waiting to see what they're planning right now. I won't be entirely put off if this is the route they go, as IDW did their own reboot thing to an extent.

    Yeah I know, but I'm not one of them, I have a very open mind towards change in general. :)

    Good points. I think shadowplay could be used to show the Turtles going all-out with their weapons. You know, seeing the shadows of the Foot Ninjas losing an arm, head, etc. instead of showing the body, blood and all. I'm really more excited after hearing what's going right for the movie.

    Excellent video. These points he mentions are dead-on and definitely qualities and necessities that all we fans are hoping for. Excellent analysis on how to make this film work. :up:

    In many ways, they were. and lets face it, its not hard to be better than the transformers movies.

    The huge VFX of those movies really make them seem better than what they are which is really bad when you think about it.

    IMO Battlefield LA maybe is equal to the TF movies but Clash of The Titans was pure crap.

    Transformers 2 and 3 were complete bunk as films. So was Wrath of the Titans. I fell asleep watching Battle LA, but that had nothing to do with the movie. I've been meaning to rematch it. With Transformers 2 and 3, as well as Wrath, the onus is all on the scripts. Really, this video nails down the positives, and the targets for the movie to hit that it mentions are obvious enough that Applebaum and Liebesman likely know them.

    Wow, I never thought a set video of the turtles in action would get me a little excited for this film. They're caught in an intense situation with being captured and separated from one of their brothers. This distinguishes a rather emotional scene - and yes, I'm very excited by this. My favorite aspects of the previous live action films was not only the humor and camaraderie between the brothers, but also their genuine concern for one another in situations of emotional distress (especially in the 1990 film). I love the way Leo is screaming for Mikey (and it looks like this adaption is abandoning Mike's surfer accent). So although I still have my concerns for this movie, this little behind the scenes shot gives me some hope. :)

    Clash of the Titans was decent.

    Wrath of the Titans (Which Liebesman directed) was, other than its VFX and action sequences, unforgivable.

    Clash of the Titans was crap...even they knew it which is why they did the half @$$ed 3D conversion to capitalize on the 3D craze.

    I kinda liked darkness falls when it first came out I was only 10 tho. Watched it last week it sucks lol

    Battle:LA was your basic action alien attack movie so the script was bland. The action and direction was ok. Maybe with a good script Liebesman can make a good movie.

    Just gotta hope we get a good movie.

    I thought he made poor decisions in Battle:LA as a director. I don't mind shake came but why is there a need for it in non action scenes...the scene in the office calls to mind.

    Apparently, Darkness Falls was so bad that it made Liebesman want to quit directing movies.
