She's probably a Foot member or something, but we don't need something like this. Ugh!

We're opposing everything because, based on what we've seen, they haven't really gotten many things right.
Let me name off the things that they've gotten right:
-Foot Ninja.
-New Shredder, who looks like a ninja.
-The fact that Bebop and Rocksteady are in this movie.
-Same Turtle actors.

Now, let's look at the bad.
-April O'Neil is still in this movie, and is most likely the main protagonist again.
-Casey Jones doesn't look like Casey Jones, and probably will not behave like Casey Jones.
-They're spending more of the budget on cars than they are on Turtles.
-The same team who brought us that "amazing" 2014 movie is still on board with this one.
-The NINJA Turtles get captured by the police.
-The SIX-FOOT TALL BULLETPROOF NINJA TURTLES are RESTRAINED by the police.
-The police are ESCORTING said six-foot tall bulletproof Ninja Turtles.
-They're overstuffing the living hell out of this movie.
-Megan Fox is dressed AS A SCHOOLGIRL.

There are MANY MORE negatives about this movie than there are positive. The first movie alone should determine that this movie isn't going to be stellar.

Well said, Foom. They haven't learned their lesson, and we have the right to point these flaws out. That's what discussion is for.

Edit: Because not everyone wants to see Megan Fox dressed like a sl*t to go undercover.

Considering how combative you've been lately, I'd suggest you take your own advice & simply ignore those who frustrate you.

You're right. It's a lot more fun to just watch this forum get locked down yet again.

I'm with you. In spite of everything, they gave us this:



At least it's something. Blonde suits her.

The long black hair needs an update.

Yeah, sorry, I think that's actually a very small benefit in the grand scheme of crappy Platinum Dunes movies.

Actually, it IS fun to watch that happen. Some men want to watch the world burn, after all...

Not a fan of the schoolgirl concept , but yeah, add some strawberry hue to that wig and it's far more closer to being April and done simply enough; ends up as April rather than "Megan Fox meets and Turtles and says some lines."

There's no denying Megan Fox looks hot as f*ck in that schoolgirl costume, but it's not April. It's most likely not going to add anything to the movie, and it just proves that all of these producers just care about the sex appeal to the teenagers, who aren't going to see this movie anyways.

It's no doubt for the dads who are taking their 7yr-olds to the movie...

There's nothing wrong with sex appeal. Sexy is'nt a crime.

Her acting is criminal, in that all she brought to the screen was an attempt at sexy, which wasn't sexy when paired with what she said.

April IS a sexy character, whether she's a reporter, a computer programmer, a scientist, or a small business owner. She's got her **** together, so she's sexy. She's EXTRA sexy because she's physically attractive, she takes care of herself, and accepting of otherness - a rare combination of traits. At times she's nurturing, strong, independent, and at others she's vulnerable and demure. She's kinda the best of all worlds.

Unfortunately, Megan didn't give any of those vibes in her first outing, and instead we were subjected to other characters literally pointing at her sexuality and commenting on it. That isn't sexy, in any form, and never has been, be it the objectification of the self (be it Zsa Zsa Gabor or Cindy of 3's company, or Baywatch) or via some other party.

But we really need to stop vilifying sex. SEX is not the problem, and neither are beautiful people. Don't let the Puritans win, we're all better than that.

I gotta wonder... was Megan able to breathe with her mouth closed before the plastic surgery? I'm not being a hater, and I hate when fans tear her apart over her physical appearance, but this is an honest question. I noticed her mouth is always open, and now I can't unsee it. Gah...

Well said, Powder. Couldn't have said it better myself.

I was wondering that, too. Makes no sense to me. If you don't like what we say about the movie, just ignore it and move on. Not too hard to do.

dude re-read my last post. You're not the ONLY culprit, just using this as an example, but it really does seem to be generation wide.

Some people just don't like plastic surgery. I'm all for it if someone's been in an accident or something, but other than that, what's the point? Everyone should be happy with who they are instead of trying to change themselves for the sake of beauty.

Everyone should be free to do what ever the **** they want, and not feel the need to conform to what others feel is acceptable.
