I mean, yeah, the show itself was total cotton candy fluff, but that just begs the question of WHY make a movie out of it? We already had a sh*tty "Josie and the Pussycats" and it's almost the exact same thing conceptually. Not every idea has a right to exist. Especially not when it's being done poorly on purpose.
Can it be worse than PDMT? Naw... i mean, c'mon... it couldn't possibly...

Yeah it can, easily. For starters, the budget is supposedly embarrassingly small. Secondly, it's a franchise nobody ever took even a little seriously to begin with (can't blame 'em). Third, four weeks is a really ridiculous shooting schedule. Fourth, it was green-lit by people who thought the GI Joe movie was a really good First Step. And finally, the only appeal the movie has for people who aren't fans of the property is, "Holy s***, Molly Ringwald? She's still alive?!"

It's not just gonna be worse than TMNT. It's going to be one of the worst movies ever released in theaters, period.

We're gonna be sitting through a goddamn live-action Gummi Bears at some point. And no sooner will I hit "Submit" on this post, than some nitwit will be ready to reply with "I'd totally love to see that!" Yeah. I just bet you would.

Same old reasons I guess probably why kids shows meant for boys or both genders keep the girls/women in fewer numbers. Too many and that equals "for girls" and therefore deadly toxic to guys (or seems that way) - unless of course uncensored skin is showing...or, uh, is made of cartoon Ponies.

Hollywood could really use some more smart, talented women behind the camera who can make some awesome female driven movies that aren't dimwitted and unconcerned with putting anyone's boobs in the camera nor making sure that sex appeal is inherently part of the character description.

Ya know... seriously, I didn't really care much before if movie Karai lived - and kind of assumed she didn't considering what happened to her hummer - but actually, come back Karai, you're the only TMNT lady with serious potential who doesn't sit there with Foxface Syndrome the entire time.

You know what I honestly think? I think the situation in Hollywood is a lot like the one in video games. Lots of women get involved because they want to create actual change, "Fight the system from within", all that stuff... then they realize, It's Totally F'n Impossible, because all the people in power within the industry are Men and they're absolutely Not Interested in stepping aside for anyone with the Exact Opposite agenda than the one that's already entrenched. So, these "crusaders" give up, settle for "progress by inches", and come to the practical decision that since the world doesn't want to be "saved", they may as well be able to pay their bills.

Thing is, it's not gonna change. Like, not ever. The entire point of any industry is "The Status Quo Works", because that's what makes the most money for everyone. In Hollywood, especially, the pen-holders at the highest rungs of the pecking order only move aside for family members. It's a completely closed system that doesn't allow newcomers of any kind, especially idealists. And 99% of them are Men. That's not changing. Ever.

I'm not saying that's right or wrong, I'm saying it Is What It Is and that there's reasons why it can't be and will never be any different.

Hey as long as they give it a faithful origin, and stay true to everything we love about Gummy Bears, then it should be great!

Also, why are you sitting through a Gummy Bears movie if it's made? Do you live in some country that forces you to watch movies you will hate?

Sadly yes...I have a hard time understanding people who write things off because it's lead is a woman. Or the entire cast is women. I think the last few years have gotten better, Bridesmaids certainly helped, and SNL has always showcased talented women. Actually SNL's female cast right now is better than the male cast.

I think the reason it is getting better, and it will continue to get better, is that women are not following that old way of thinking of act this way, say these things, dress really pretty so you can meet a good man who will knock you up and you can raise the children at home while he provides. That is such a warped way of thinking.

Women who are not afraid of being themselves are the ones who will truly make a difference in this world, and get people to open their eyes.

Obviously girls watch shows aimed at boys, and nobody will say a thing, and sadly I think shows aimed at boys are more realistic in nature. So there is some small form of relatabilty for the girls when they watch. The shows aimed at girls seem to be for ultra barbie type girls. Pink dresses and being popular and all that stuff. That's unappealing to a boy. I saw the commercials during TMNT this weekend for a show on Nick about a girl who goes from cheerleader to QB for her school, and I thought that is a good show for kids. It's showing that a girl is equal, also putting her in a powerful roll such as QB (leader of the team) and it's not diminishing the guys either.

I think most men who don't really think about it, think feminism means that women de-value men, but they are just looking to be equals. I think if most men really knew what feminism was about they'd understand it.

I think you were the person that inspired me to actually start posting on this board (I'm sure Leo and TrickOrTreater are thankful), over arguments of sexualizing April...now regarding your statement about getting non dimwitted women who don't use sex appeal... Sex is natural, sexual attraction is natural. I don't get why people are so against having anything to do with sex in movies. It just seems odd to avoid that, or suggest that women are sexless. That's kind of what men have been doing to women since the dawn of time. They've looked at women as just there for our sexual needs, only being sexual so we will provide a life to them, and now I notice some women who are trying to make women into these sexless people. Sex is natural...but for whatever reason it may be, some people are not comfortable talking about it or seeing it...and those people tend to think it's being forced down their throat...but it's actually not.

Inherent
: involved in the constitution or essential character of something

In other words... not necessarily removing it, but not always acting like it's an important aspect of a character that has to be pointed out rather than focusing on more important traits.

And you're right, a lot of it seems exactly that way. Which is pretty much my main point (and I guess a symptom of how society is), be it shows aimed at kids or descriptions of adult characters - it's all very one dimensional depictions/marketing.

Right field is getting jealous, don't ignore crashing in right field.

If you do mention right field, be sure we also talk about center field.

Back on topic...

You know what. If this film does (very possibly) win any of those nominations...

If they fix the lair for the sequel and/or have a new home that is just as filled with so much stuff like their 'bedroom' is/was, I want and think it would be very appropriate for them to tuck the/a Razzie trophy in among all their other junk, able to be spotted by a good eye.

(But who ever it belongs to still has to take it home after production wraps up so it can stare them in the face.)

I know what you mean, I was/am kind of disappointed we hardly saw any of it. If only down time existed. I hope it just looked more messed up in the movie then what really was.

Such awesome work done on it (those folks deserve a trophy for that, and not a Razzie), I'm kind of envious of those who must have gotten paid to have the job of looking for all that stuff to build and decorate the place. Basically shopping for them as if they were real. That would be fun as heck.

I can understand why many people did not like this movie. Personally, I thought it was great. However, I do not believe this movie should have been nominated for Worst Picture and other major categories instead of Ouija. That film received far worse reviews than Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I'm very surprised that movie avoided getting nominations.

Problem is, with that you're comparing something that could actually have been something, to something that was never going to be anything. It's kind of a sliding scale.

TMNT was a huge disappointment to many people because, they technically could have given us just about anything, anything at all, and THAT was the best they could do. Well, I for one don't think it was anywhere close to "the best they could do" and am pissed they barely tried. It could have been a lot more, and not just a toy commercial/jokey piece of nostalgic fluff.

"Ouija", however, never had any chance to be anything, and apparently it wasn't. How can you even "grade" something like that? Something with zero potential to be any good turned out to be bad. Meanwhile, something with infinite potential turned out to be "Eh". That, to me, is worse.

It's like, nobody gets upset when the kid from the trailer park gets hooked on smack and starts robbing liquor stores; he's just doing what he's "supposed' to do. When the straight-A honor student who was gonna go to Harvard starts doing blow and stripping, that's when everyone freaks out. It's a matter of, "How much potential did such-and-such really even have to begin with". Make sense?

It doesn't surprise me that this movie is getting nominated for Razzies as I feel it deserves it immensely for how shoddy it was. Sure, there were probably other movies that were just as bad, but I'm still not surprised this one got some nominations.

Great job, TMNT! You did it!

I wonder what the outcome would have been if he'd directed TMNT as well as Transformers (he essentially was the director of Turtles, but still...)
