Hello Everybody!

Hey everyone! Brand new to the forums, as of a couple of days ago, looking forward to chatting to you all!

In my 30's, so I've grown up a TMNT fan since first seeing the 87 series, as a wee lad. Love the 1990 movie (and to a lesser extent, Secret Of The Ooze!), the 2003 series was pretty great and I absolutely adored the 2012 Nick series also!

Favourite Turtle has always been Michelangelo, favourite character is probably Splinter overall- though 80's BeBop and Rocksteady are firm favourites too.

Feel free to say hi, call me on my crap or tell me you hate me for throwing shade at TMNT II.

P.S. The Platinum Dunes Michael Bay produced TMNT movies, weren't that bad...

Welcome to the Drome!

I think a lot of people didn't like Ooze as much as 1990, though you always get exceptions. All opinion

Hope you enjoy it here.

Yeah! I never thought TMNT (Or TMHeroT, as I'm in the UK!) would still be a "thing" when I was 38 years old...or that I'd still be buying toys from it haha!

Thanks! As to Secret Of The Ooze, it still has the "Yeah...a little TOO Raph!" scene, if nothing else! Can't argue with that!

Welcome. I love the 1990 film too and the 2003 series was great alright. I agree the Bay movies weren’t that bad.

Secret of the Ooze is the worst imo. Oddly enough, I like TMNT 3. My favourite characters are Leonardo and Raphael, though I like the others you’ve mentioned nearly as much.

Welcome to the fold, do still around.

Secret of The Ooze is still my favorite TMNT film and an overall favorite. The Shredder, evil mutants, action, funny moments, and still a bit dark. Now as an adult I would prefer the scrapped ending even if it would have confused me as a preschooler and more to the confrontation with Super Shredder other than a suicide/murder attempt by dropping a pier on them. "I have always preferred Cowabunga, now Go Ninja, go!"

As a child I was never a fan of the original film series, because the extraterrestrial origin of the mutagen wasn't there (even if the first film is a good start-up). After later learning about the original ideas for TCRI and the Utroms, I'm still mad at New Line Cinema for not producing such a film.

New Line Cinema owe all TMNT fans the remake.
