The fourth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles trailer just hit the Internet featuring the new song Shell Shocked. Music plays a big part in this summer’s blockbuster movies and the TMNT production team looks to be continuing the trend. We’re quickly closing in on the August 8th release date for the reboot and I find myself still on the fence about this latest TMNT incarnation. There are a lot of things that bug me about this reboot, beginning with those noses and lips, and while some of the new stuff, like this trailer, are starting weakening my determination to hate this reboot, I’m still not sure which side of the fence I’ll end up on.

Chances are that if you’re an original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan from the 80s and 90s, you are having a hard time accepting the new reboot produced from Michael Bay.  To be fair the “fans” of the original comics and the 1990 film were never going to be satisfied with whatever this movie was going to be.  The idea was to take material to another level for today’s youthful demographic and not just to appease overly-nostalgic fans. With that said, this latest behind-the-scenes video has the actors, doing what seems to be,  brainwashing audiences on “how awesome this movie is”. (more…)

‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ New TV Spot And Motion Posters

There’s been lots of grumbling about the new Turtles movie, mostly because director Michael Bay is producing it and seems dead set on trampling over the fondest animated heroes of our childhood. Early sketches of their revamped designs were met with backlash, but criticism seems to be lightening with every new promo.  This new spot proves that the Foot Clan ain’t nuttin’ to F wit when they take some of the guys hostage, prompting Raphael to grimly announce a search and rescue mission. The motion posters are really just short videos profiling the brothers as individuals, rounding out each ending with a moving still of the character. It put me in the mind of motion comics when I first saw it, which ties the franchise back to its comic book roots from 1984. So what do you say? Got a hankering for more Heroes in a Half Shell (more…)

‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ Review: The Same Old, Same Old, Just More of It

- 06-27-14Featured, Film, reviews Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

nb-movie-review-transformers-4-title

This far into the Transformer series of films by Michael Bay you know exactly what you’re going to get, so you’re either going to see Transformers: Age of Extinction and enjoy it, see it and hate watch it, or just ignore its passing and seeing something more engaging to your personal taste at the multiplex. If I could describe Age of Extinction in two words, they would be “too much,” too much exposition, too much action, too much plot, too much Bay-hem… And although it’s not as noticeable, too much silliness mixed in with all the hardcore action. In other words, it’s everything you like, or hate, already about Transformers films, just more of it. (more…)

Don’t Worry, ‘Tran5formers’ is on the Way!

It’s still over a week until Transformers: Age of Extinction makes us fall in love with Bay-hem all over again, but rest assured, Trans4mers won’t be the last “robots in disguise” movie to roll out in the multiplex if Paramount Pictures has there way. At the CineEurope conference in Barcelona, Spain studio bigwigs laid out their plans, and future Transformers films have a big part to play in those plans. Yes fans, in 2016, it’s time to bring on Tran5formers. (Spelling intentional. And trademarked. Probably not by us.) (more…)

Impulse hating on the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot is hard to resist when the production keeps showing us one visually disturbing character realization after another. The latest reboot bungle to incite finger pointing, snickering, and jokes galore, is this new look at the films Chief villain – Shredder.  Hit the jump to check out Shredder in all his High-Tech-Ginsu-Knife glory.

New ‘Trans4mers: Age of Extinction’ International Trailer Here to Remind You That Mark Wahlberg Has Definitely Found a Transformer

- 06-13-14Film Posted by Jacob Knight

Wahlberg

The childlike wonder with which Mark Wahlberg delivers the declaration “GUYS, I THINK WE JUST FOUND A TRANSFORMER!” will go down in the annals of history as maybe one of the best line readings EVER. Despite having hated all of Michael Bay’s previous Transformers motion pictures, my ticket for Terry Hoytes v. Robots is 100% sold (fuck Batman v. Superman – this is the really real cinematic showdown). Now there’s an international trailer (complete with Chinese (?) subtitles) to sell the remaining few of you who weren’t already down with this clash of titans. (more…)

Hear Grimlock Roar While Imagine Dragons Pound Out Weak Sauce Commercial Pop in Latest ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ International Trailers/TV Spots

GrimlockAgeofExtinction

What the fuck is an Imagine Dragon anyway? Aren’t all dragons imaginary? What a redundant name for a band.

Sorry. I couldn’t help but vent there, as I honestly can’t fathom how these ‘musicians’ became popular. Now that they’re contributing their muzak-ready drivel to Transformers: Age of Extinction, I guess we can use them as a baseline for whether or not the person sitting next to you has taste that jives with the lowest common denominator. It’s kind of like that moment when emo music went totally mainstream via Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man 2 and that awful Fantastic Four movie. From that day forward, if you listened to anything remotely resembling Dashboard Confessional or Taking Back Sunday, your taste was automatically “corporately influenced”. (more…)
