Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles  
Michael Bay, not content to have screwed up Transformers, now turns his sights on the abuse of "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles". At the annual Nickelodeon upfront presentation last week, über-producer Michael Bay revealed details for an upcoming live-action TMNT movie, including a new origin story for the half-shell heroes that is sure to raise the ire of die-hard fans. "When you see this movie, kids are going to believe one day these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie," said Bay as he took the stage to discuss his new vision for the reptilian reboot. "These turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable."

*blink* *blink*

In response to fans' outcry, Bay responded in maybe the worst way possible, apart from telling them to go fuck themselves: “Fans need to take a breath, and chill.”

As always, fuck you, Michael.

we shall see what he thinks when he bombs in the box office. No fucked up version of TMNT survives. Ever. They keep trying, and failing.

The thing that gets me is, it's not his intellectual property to dick around with... He wants to make a movie about a race of alien turtles? Fine, make that movie - just don't associate it with TMNT when it has nothing to do with those ideas. If you wanna deal with somebody else's work, then make damn sure you stay respectful to the source.

As I told a friend. "This is Michael 'Act 5 Scene 5' Bay."

(Hamlet, soliloquy in act 5 scene 5, the last few lines.)
