It's been a long time since this blog has had any activity. Mostly because this blog was a knee-jerk reaction by a couple TMNT fans who were confused and infuriated by Michael Bay's insistence that the Ninja Turtles were aliens. It didn't help when people behind the film insist that since the turtles are products of aliens, it could mean that they are an alien species (a concept that was greatly discussed on this blog). Then, it was revealed that the official name of the project was changed to "Ninja Turtles", and more and more people were getting behind the idea. It seemed like all hope was lost, until...
Paramount shut down production of the latest reboot!
It's official! According to some sources, the date was pushed back. However, considering the other information given in the article, the production is shut down.
What does this mean? Well, first and foremost, it could be just a rumor. If it's not a rumor, it means that a TMNT big screen reboot won't be happening any time soon. While some might be saddened by this, at the same time, this would be less of a reboot and more of a completely different movie all together.
Despite the fact that this might be a rumor, it was someone talking about the TMNT "reboot" shutting down, and it got me excited enough to post this. With the failure of Battleship, the people are finally sending a message to Hollywood that we're tired of the "They're aliens!" shortcut, especially with adaptations and reboots. And that we want to see something different, while staying familiar to the source. The Ninja Turtles aren't aliens, and finally some are getting the message that if it were to be released tomorrow, it would fail.
I wonder, are the Turtles aliens in the new Nickelodeon cartoon? I haven't watched because, well, I've already seen TMNT cartoons aimed at children.
