Did someone here listen to Kevin Eastman's live commentary? Anything interesting or never heard before?

I watched it for a little while. The live feed kept glitching, so I eventually gave up. From what I did see, there wasn't much talk about the film.

I hope one day we can get a full-on commentary track with Barron, Eastman, Brian Henson, etc.

I watched the film and the livestream, nothing a die hard fan wouldn't know. But enjoyable to just watch the movie and listen to him talk about his favorite scenes/moments.

Would have loved to see Peter laird do something like this too, one day.

Yes he also asked where they invented the Turtles and what his favorite Playmates TMNT toys is. So 2 more prizes, but a surprise at what they are.

For anyone that missed Kevin Eastman's live stream of watching the 1990 movie. You can watch the video here.

Gotta say, I just love this film more as time goes on.
Steve Baron totally gets it. The aesthetic is off the charts cool. I immediately geek out upon seeing The Foot occupy a dingy, undercover, diaper van in the most dank New York alley you can imagine. I'd be curious as to how many others geek out on this sort of thing, but to me, it visually nails the Mirage look, with help from the grainy filter.

Then there is the puppetry, which has so much finesse and helps sell the personalities and relationships.

There are compromises, like the lack of "teeth" in the action scenes, and essentially any changes they made to Baron's cut, including music. Despite these flaws, the film holds up incredibly.

Just a miracle of a film to a fan like me. It's hard to imagine another TMNT film topping it, in the sense that even if one were to nail certain elements better than this film, it would be a true feat to one up this film when it comes to heart and, again, aesthetic. At least in my opinion. Sure would love to be proven wrong.
Agreed. I saw this in theaters and love it more and more as time goes on.

The Turtle Power Podcast recorded a commentary track for the 1990 in celebration of the 30th anniversary.

Thumbs up

This is so cool. Thanks for this news. Had no idea about any of this. TMNT 1990 still remains the greatest adaptation of a comic book to film ever made. Taking whole panels, shots and scenes from such an underground comic and introducing the wider TMNT universe to the masses was so great. And the Turtles have never looked better in live action either.
