Paling in comparison, I'm surprised they'd even put it up alongside 2012 and simultaneously. Are they trying to remind people Rise was largely unable to hold a candle to its predecessor? (Let alone afford one from Dollar Tree after those lousy toy sale profits.)

This movie comes out 3 days before I last visited this site, almost feels like fate.

Oh yeah because how could Rise hold a candle to 12's poor pacing, underdeveloped supporting cast and villains, plots points that are dropped, abysmal treatment of female characters, god awful shipping that doesn't led anywhere, truly the magnus opus of TMNT media.

Shall we take bets on how many Rise fans that were kids at the time/still are, i.e. the ones that wouldn't have access to this site/Twitter for information, that'll actually watch the movie. Could be a big cash loss for Nick

Who said 2012 has to be perfect, considering how low bar Rise aimed for, it didn't have to be.

The (animated) magnum opus is still obviously 2003 (minus late seasons), and forget candle, that's a wet, used match situation.

This doesn't exactly strike me as "expensive" to make.

You don't aim for the "bar" you raise it or lower it, if you're going to use a common phrase then at least use it correctly.

I'm not sure a Rise apologist has any sort of moral high ground from which to be pedantic.

But... Rise aimed for the low bar and hit its head on it? Bar was too low to avoid the collision.

What do you mean "moral" last time I checked Rise didn't commit a war crime, maybe you meant artistic or intellectual?

Wow that's interesting still not how the phrase works. I don't get you people most of you are in your 40s or at least pushing it, yet for some reason still misuse common phrases and words.

It was too different? Now to me 2003 series was the right amount of different.

So, wait do we have an official release date than? I’m confused.

I’m still just waiting to see this versions of Leo’s leadership skills, that’s the only reason why I’m interested in this thing.

Different can be interesting choices, or it can be stupid/crappy choices. Personally, I saw far more of the latter.

And it bombed so... I can't exactly assume I'm just some minority "rose colored glasses" meanie for feeling that way. I'm open to new stuff as far as stories go and variations on design if they look good (I don't care for this art style or the anime-like animation in places, sorry), but as far as effing with the Turtles and just making most of the episodes BS... nah, no thanks, I don't enjoy seeing them shoehorned into being like any other brainless Spongebob-like Nicktoon made to be all flashy colors and obnoxiousness to entertain 6-year-olds for 10 mins. Heck, even the kids weren't on board with it, as the actual target audience, else it wouldn't have gotten canceled and mid second season.

I mean, if some adult fans like it, to each there own, more power to you then, I hope the movie at least gives it a good send off for you. But defending a show that bombed from negative comments... a bit futile and like defending Next Mutation.

Largely my own interest is in the darn thing just finally coming out so Rise can move on into the past and maybe we can get some other stuff next that is more universally enjoyed.

And some apparently get touchy and nitpicky about weird things and go all grammar figure of speed Nazi over stuff when...I guess needing to fight someone else having an opinion they don't share?

... Kind of a weird statement considering it's the only one of the cartoons to adapt comic book stories for more than 20 episodes, ain't it? And to say the 2012 show had 20 episodes based on comic book stories is a generous estimate based on a loose standard of what qualifies as an adaptation. About half the episodes from the first four seasons of the 2003 show were clear adaptions (despite what Andrew might say), so about 40-50.
