The thing that amuses me/appalls me most about this upcoming TMNT movie is the fact that, despite taking huge liberties with continuity, there appear to be no actual new ideas in it at all. So far in the two trailers, you’ve got April fainting (again), Splinter reminding them they are brothers (again) and lots of shots of mysterious green liquid being pumped from one place to another (again).
Now we just need a trailer where Raph seems distant and angry and we’ll have the full set of TMNT cliches. Why bother spending so much money on a movie and fucking around with the minutiae of continuity if you’re just going to repeat what’s gone before?
Am I the only one who sees ‘BAMF’ and thinks Nightcrawler every time?
Nope. I see it all the time too.
