  1. Like Joe, I must also admit to having seen the new TMNT…though like Joe, I also goit away with not paying for it (thanks Ege!). My sentiments on the film are similar, but my experience did have a “happy ending” and no, I don’t mean by that what Michael Bay would probably mean.

    No, when I got home from TMNT all I could think was “man, I really love the turtles, and I haven’t watched anything related to them in a while, what could make for better viewing?” so I tracked down two films I had never seen and was very, very happy with both of them.

    First, I watched Turtle Power (2014) which is a documentary all about Eastman and Laird and the universe they created…and guess which of all the generations of TMNT on screen is conspicuously missing from the film? Yeah, so basically it’s perfect, everything TMNT that you might be curious or nostalgic about with absolutely no mention of the newest film/franchise. It’s a lot of fun, it’s well shot, it’s interesting, and holy crap how did I never know about the connection to Heavy Metal before?

    Second, and this took some doing, I tracked down (by means best left mysterious) the uncut UK version, widescreen without commercial breaks, of Turtles Forever (2009) which I have to say is 100% of what the new film could have been and 0% of the crap it actually is. Turtles Forever is a feature-length animated film that combines all the previous generations of turtles in a dimension-hopping, in-joke dense, enjoyable kid’s movie that’s as unafraid to make fun of itself as it is inclusive of all things TMNT. I absolutely loved it, and consider my voice added to outcry of fans online who want to see a legit USA release of this in HD.

    If you guys remember old school TMNT fondly, definitely check these both out…and of course lemme know if you have any trouble finding either. 😉
