The main theme of every review, critic or regular viewer, that I've seen is that the Turtles are great in this. That's all I need to hear.
William Fichtner is known to play bad guys, so I can see why he said that. He was the villain in last year's The Lone Ranger, he was somewhat of a bad guy in Pearl Harbor, he was quite the dick in A Perfect Storm, he was really good at playing both sides in Invasion, and he was a crazy ass villain in Prison Break.

What is a hard core fan when it comes to TMNT? Is it the ones that are the comic book fans? The ones that are the Fred Wolf fans?

Back then critics weren't ready for comic book movies then...and TMNT as a franchise was only 5 years old when the 1st film hit. There are variables. Now critics could be Turtle fans. I mean....I'm 30. If I could figure out how to make the leap to that career field, I'd totally do it.
I'm 41 and still a Turtles fan.

I think a Hardcore fan means, You like all versions of TMNT that they throw at you, Comics, TV, Movies, Video Games, Whatever.

Then what are the TMNT fans who are not liking the new movie because of white Shredder, the Turtles being grown in a lab instead of being completely unknown, April having possible blood connections to Baxter, the Turtles not being short, at all of that other stuff (mind you, I'm not one of them, I'm just not a fan of the clothing, some of the faces and Raph's too big of a size, and the fart and subtle sex jokes, I wasn't OK with it in the past, and I'm still not ok with it today)

And so, if hard core is considered anyone who liked all of the comics, shows games and whatnot, what would it be about this new movie to piss those people off?

I guess there are different levels of hardcore fans, Some are very deep into the lore of it.

Just because it's Turtles doesn't mean I should turn a blind eye to its quality.

Next Mutation has it's moments, but for the most part it's lousy. Turtle Tunes and Turtle Christmas are the worst....

I was lucky, and missed out on all of the Next Mutation. (I think I was entering highschool at the time, and that wasn't a pleasant experience) but what is Turtle Tunes and Turtle Christmas? Never heard that one before.

I think he was talking about the, " the origin has to stay the exact same or else" hard core fans IMO. Evidence: he states it right after talking about the origin story not being the same. I think hard core fan is a TMNT fan in general. Some one willing to be on this board and talk TMNT. Was wondering if you laughed at the Jizz joke in GOTG or did you also find that kinda wrong?

I honestly don't remember that in GOTG, but there were several jokes that me and the rest of the audience just didn't laugh to. That joke might have been one of the jokes that flew over our heads, or we didn't quite understand because the actors were mumbling. Some of the dialogue from Drax was hard for me to understand because he mumbled more than talked.

When Gamora tells him (starlord) the ship is dirty, and he says, " If you took a black light to this place it would look like a Jackson Pollock painting." I laughed my a$$ off, and so did the audience, with one of those ewwwww laughs.

Jizz joke in GotG-

Spoiler:
Gamora tells Quill his ship is filthy then she heads up stairs (butt shot!). Quill looks over and says 'You have no idea... if I had a black light this place would light up like a Jackson Pollack painting.'


It honestly got the 2nd biggest laugh both times I saw it. Other biggest being Groot's smile during his big fight scene.
