Michael Bay’s war on the childhood memories of those who grew up in the 80s and 90s — which began when he decided to make “Transformers” a franchise of terrible movies — is marching forward with a sequel to 2014’s horrible adaptation of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” A movie (which he produced, as he also produced this sequel) so bad that it made “The Secret of the Ooze” from 1991 look like a masterpiece (see video below).
Seriously Michael Bay, stop destroying all the fond memories of these goofy cartoons from my childhood with these horrendous adaptations.
Observations from the trailer:
- There is Bebop and Rocksteady, two characters that the filmmaker decided not to modernize even a little, making them look like ridiculous villains from the film “Class of Nuke Em High.“
- I seriously thought Stephen Amell was going to go into his “Arrow” speech when his Casey Jones character is asked what his name is.
- It wouldn’t be a Michael Bay project without Megan Fox’s midriff prominently displayed for no reason.
- The Shredder looks pretty awesome. I’ll give the film that.
