I don't have any of it handy, but I've read several books that detail Donner and the others smoking mad joints at writing meetings during pre-production of the first "Superman" film. So there's that.

And now that it's no longer "too soon", it's coming out more and more that the animosity between Chris Reeve and pretty much "Everybody" was unbelievable. Turns out the guy had a huge ego and treated most everyone like crap from Day One, until he got hurt, at which point he became a "living saint" in people's eyes, mostly through his activism, which was fueled mostly through little more than self-interest.

Kind of a downer. He looked good in the suit, though, so... we'll always have that.

Well apparently Hackman and Kidder were heavy users, but Reeve didn't partake. My friend did say the he was arrogant and off putting. Then again, maybe when you're the only one sober while everyone else is putting their paycheck up their noses, you might be perceived as a douche.

Still the best Supes no matter what.

Changes I would like to see to the designs:

1) smaller, slimmer, sleeker - more credible as ninjas
2) Raphael's body dimensions - his arms and shoulders were so big he was comically disproportionate
3) lose the lips -too human
4) Mike and Raph's nostrils slightly further apart, like Don and Leo. Nostrils so close gave them an overly human appearance

That's not easy to give up, he'll prob need to use a toothpick patch for a while.

Yeah, I prefer the wider nose, the narrowness on Raph and Mikey just looks look puppy-ish or something to me actually. I swear Raph's got a little bulldog DNA mixed in there somewhere. lol

Did Raph even have the toothpick in the movie? I've more or less wiped my memory banks of all traces.

I think they are gonna stay the same, Except they will probably have different clothing this time. I hope Donnie's backpack is smaller this time, If that thing was a battery pack, Maybe he found a way to make it smaller.

Considering almost 2 1/2 years have passed chronologically (I figured it out when on the season finale of Season 2 when Casey stated that Season 1's finale happened a year ago), I would like to see some signs of physical maturity to show that April and Casey are becoming young adults (April's like 18 now considering at the start of Season 1 she was 16)

I honestly don't see this bomb being disabled. Its like a doomsday machine. Who designs a way for a doomsday bomb to be disabled? And that's these turtles designs for me. They can only get more absurd Out of the Shadows would've been fine. just touch ups to add more of a realistic feel.

Yes, he did. He sort of chewed on it like some stress-relief implement. I didn't hate it actually - it seemed fitting for his character - although I did wonder once or twice how he managed to keep hold of it (buried under rubble, flying upside down towards a Hummer etc)... It was the impossibly durable sun glasses all over again.

Knowing these film makers, if they got rid of it they'd probably just upgrade it to a crazy straw. Gotta have something to chew on, they don't know how else to portray him as tough.

I would reduce their high and their bulkiness since they are ninja, not bodybuilders. Out with those lips; their shells positioned as they look in the cartoon series, not too high like in the movie. Out with the nostrils. About Donnie, I will remove all those gadgets attached to his shell and those Steve Urkel glasses. I will give him nice glasses to use them when he is working on his lab and for going to patrols, he can use contact lenses.

And the Shredder, he is a Ninja warrior, not Megatron.

I would make them a little bit smaller in size and their faces be more like the 2003 Turtles. The Shredder be a little less robotic than he is. Maybe not so much equipment on Donny, also no glasses.
