WHICH DO YOU THINK IS BETTER?!
TMNT 2014
OR
TMNT 3, 1993


I like TMNT 2014 but since a lot of people hate it then WHY NOT?!
so as Shredder in Mutants in Manhattan said:
'tonight THE WAR BEGINS!'

As far as I'm concerned, TMNT 3 is better in almost every conceivable way, save some of the digital effects & that there is very little combat.

TMNT 3, corniness and shenanigans aside. Cowabunga!

TMNT III is my vote, but I very much enjoyed the last movie. To be fair though, TMNT III is my 2nd favorite of the Turtle movies...

Don't get me wrong, Elias Koteas and Tarzan Boy were both really cool, but I just can't handle TMNT 3. It's just slightly better than TNM for me. Maybe that's why I didn't have much issue with the PD movie once I lowered my expectations after Bay's involvement.

2014 movie because it's actually a great movie.

What movie did you watch? 2014 made no sense... the plot was horrid.

It was a fun movie. It did have plotholes, yes, and learning ninjutsu from a book is dumb, but the Turtles are good in it. I liked Splinter VS. Shredder, and the Shredder suit is pretty cool looking.
Movie 3 was boring in my opinion.

I voted the 1993 movie because Corey Feldman returned as Donatello and had more jokes than in the first one.

I also liked the idea of the turtles time traveling...like the SNES game, I wished they had the ability to time travel to another place while keeping the plot somehow.

This. Megan Fox is sublime. Shredder is badass. The turtles look great. Tonnes of great/funny moments and beautiful sceneries.

TMNT3 is better than TMNT 2 Soto but that's it.

Megan Fox is horrid in all angles. Shredder was an after thought and more transformer. The Turtles were Shrekurtles and Fugly as all get out. The story made zero sense. Splinter can't read but he could teach ninjitsu from pictures. And it was a ripoff of Amazing Spiderman (either the first or second, either way). It had a couple funny moments which were all spoiled via trailers.

I honestly cannot understand why ANYONE felt the first one was good. Superman 3 and 4 were both better movies. The Star Wars Christmas Special was a better movie. Green Lantern was a better movie and it SUCKED!

But I've heard decent things about TMNT 2. Such as folks wishing this one had been the first film...

Calling other people look horrid? Please, take a look into a mirror yourself. You're no beauty queen. Sounds like you're the jealous ugly one. :trolleye:

Other than that, Megan Fox secured her place on #11th on EMPIRE's 100 Sexiest Movie Stars just last year (http://www.empireonline.com/movies/features/100-sexiest-women/). She beaten Penelope Cruz, Eva Green, Charlize Theron, Amy Adams, Keira Knightley, and many other beautiful women.

Shredder was an after thought and more transformer.
So they made changes. So he looked like transformers. Big deal.

I like it. It's a new take on Shredder, it looks the best and looks better than 1990 Shredder.

1990 Shredder looks like he's wearing an oversized dress like a raincoat or something. :tlol: So impractical.

Compare this drag queen dress with overbloated mouth piece:

Yep, 2014 Shredder won hands down on the badass look scale. :tcool:
The Turtles were Shrekurtles and Fugly as all get out.
Mutant turtles, different perspective. Maybe if they look at you they tell you look like Shrek and fugly.

Many other fans like the look, this is apparent on the countless fan arts and posts online. Not everyone share your opinion. ;):tcool:

It had a couple funny moments which were all spoiled via trailers.Most things are ripoff of something else anyway. For example, the highest grossest film of all time, Avatar, was a ripoff of Pocahontas story. Big deal.

I honestly cannot understand why ANYONE felt the first one was good. Because you can't tolerate other people's different opinions than your own?

Superman 3 and 4 were both better movies. The Star Wars Christmas Special was a better movie. Green Lantern was a better movie and it SUCKED! I thought all Superman films suck. Well, Men of Steel was okay a bit at the end cause Superman gets to kill someone. Green Lantern was nothing great, just good.

But I've heard decent things about TMNT 2. Such as folks wishing this one had been the first film...You've heard but you haven't seen it.

The 1993 movie is so fricking bad and unbearably cheesy, I don't know how anyone can like it at all, period. Even if you don't like the 2014 movie, it is just plain better than 1993's movie.

TMNT 3. While it's not a great movie and is way too goofy and slapstick for my taste, it did actually have a script with some modicum of heart and a well arched story with a clear beginning, middle and end. TMNT 2014 had none of those things.

I admired TMNT III at the time for taking a risk and telling a different kind of story, something more in line with what the comic books would tell, it taught me not everything had to have Shredder and the Foot in it, and that the Turtles could be defined in other situations, there's also some touching moments

I remember liking the villain of that movie also, can't remember his name though.

I think the 2014 movie is a bit better but I don't hate TMNT 3.

Not having shredder kind of hurt TMNT 3 and the costumes were a bad departure from the previous movies before it. Splinter just looked awful.

The time travel plot wasn't the most interesting but they made it work ok with the ancient prophecy of the Kappas coming to take down the warlord, tying into the secret of the ooze's plot of Donatello trying to find a greater purpose and special meaning.

Raphael's character development was good too with him appreciating feudal Japan for the peace and cleanliness and then forming a heartfelt bond with Yoshi.

Something that bothered me about the movie was how Leonardo's character (my favorite) took a step back in every conceivable way. From dialogue, to his screen presence to having the worst puppeteer for facial movement (seriously did the guy controlling his mouth have his hand crushed in a car door or something).

To this day I still listen to the soundtrack and quote the movie ("secrets leak like the stink from a dead pig") so it has left a mark on me.

The 2014 movie has an awful story, just terrible. You can tell it was riddled with re-writes and last minute reshoots etc. I do like the action in it though and the humor and the turtles interacting with each other was cool. It succeeds at what it is, a summer popcorn action flick. Things like the 99 cheese pizza, and the fight with splinter and shredder were great but the bad origin story made the fight feel hollow. I haven't rewatched the movie in a while though so it may not hold up over time the way the original trilogy does.

TMNT 2014. The only part I liked of TMNT 3 was the dance sequence at the beginning. Casey, the moments he was on screen as well. Just cause of Elias Koteas. I've seen TMNT 2014 at least 10 times.

TMNT 3 may be a bad movie but it took place at a time where public saw the turtles in that light.

TMNT 2014 is made by people who don't care about the source material and instead writes the most unbelievable, plot-holed filled, April-focused story I have ever witnessed in this franchise. There is NO excuse for that movie to come out the way it did!

I liked tmnt 2014 far more because:

1. It had more tmnt characters like shredder, karai, vernon and burne
2. I think the actors in 2014 gave it their best. Even Megan Fox I think did pretty good and none of the casting choices I thought were bad.
3. The story. Sure, 2014 has many problems, but the story explores the turtles origins and actually incorporates the foot unlike 1993.
4. More interesting original characters. Eric Sacks, by far felt alot more memorable to me than any original character in tmnt 3.

I like 2014 more than 1993 and 2007, but not more than 1990, SOTO and OOTS.

I'll take Paige Turco NOW over Megan Fox.

I like it. It's a new take on Shredder, it looks the best and looks better than 1990 Shredder.

1990 Shredder looks like he's wearing an oversized dress like a raincoat or something. :tlol: So impractical.

I would use the word "impractical" more for the 2014 Shredder than for either of the first two movies.

I like 2014 more than 1993 and 2007, but not more than 1990, SOTO and OOTS.

Ok? I don't know. I must be in the minority when it comes to the 2007 CGI film. I seem to like that movie more than most other TMNT fans.

This is supposed to be a movie, not a modeling contest. She won the Razzie Award for Worst Actress for the movie and she deserved it!

1993 was a bad film, but still enjoyable to some degree. It certainly did not damage the property as much as Bay's films did. They didn't try to make the Turtles aliens or turn Shredder into a White guy... yes, Shredder was not even in the movie, but I doubt they'd have done that since he was Asian in the previous two movies(well, except for when he was in Super Shredder form, but that is a whole different matter entirely).

I just have to think about re-watch ability .
I watched the 2014 movie at the cinema. and I did enjoy it. It was a fun couple of hours.
Fast Forward (deliberate use of wording) a few months and I buy the Blu Ray release. Hm. I find that I have not watched it, and never really had the inclination to do so .
The Third (officially untitled) Turtles movie is a lot of fun. It's quite silly, and probably quite childish in parts (just who did they think they were making this movie for?) but... I have watched it a few times. I tend to open up my Blu Ray 3 movie set, and watch the first one all the way through and leave the set out. I usually watch one of the others randomly. So the movie is an easy, enjoyable, fun revisiting each time.

TMNT 3 and it's not even close.

I will say though, I can't agree that it's worse than the Star Wars Holiday Special. I had to watch that monstrosity over 3 days it was just dire! Even TMNT 2014 didn't reach that level of awfulness.

Well, Men of Steel was okay a bit at the end cause Superman gets to kill someone.

Please tell me this is a joke :teek::tcry:

No matter what people think of the third movie it is still light-years ahead of the 2014 movie, imo.

But I'm biased because I don't like the new movie turtles in any way. I just pretend it's some weird and wonky looking wannabes.
