This Blog and Its Future

When I started this blog, it was initially a knee-jerk reaction to Michael Bay's announcement of his plans with the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I wanted to make some kind of impact, but I never expected it was going to make the dent it did. And I certainly didn't expect that it would (arguably) play a part in pretty much ensuring that the production would stay in indefinite hiatus.

Then comes to pressure in figuring out what to do next. With no new news, there's really nothing else to bring to light, outside of restating and discussing the same facts over and over and over again. This blog has, surprisingly, accomplished what it set out to do. It's not only a personal victory, but a victory for anyone who loves TMNT, and for the property itself.

That's why this site will not be updated in the foreseeable future. Instead, it will stand as a passive beacon to the mess that could have been, and the potential for the future of TMNT on the big screen. And the Facebook group will stand as a collection of fans who don't want their intelligence questioned by Hollywood anymore. Soon, I will start a blog dissecting Nolan's Batman trilogy, and stating why better Batman movies can (and will) be made in the future without his assistance.

However, this site won't be closed forever. When Bay rears his ugly head back out and talks about TMNT, I will be back. But for now, rest.

  1. What about doing a post about what you would want to see in a Ninja Turtles movie?

  2. xD bit full of yourself to make out like it was you or your blog that "made all these changes" or "made such an impact" lol, fans of any long time series get like this either way it really makes no difference, fans would have still complained about anything they didnt like and people would have got onboard, i really dont see what your blog has that all the other blogs dont about the movie, its just your typical everyday rant about a movie, no offence, just think you are getting way ahead of yourself xD

    1. You are absolutely right; there are tons of blogs talking about the movie. However, remember when the initial script came out? The script everyone revolted over? Know who was the first to show it? This blog. Who was the first to review it? This blog. All of those blogs talking about it were linking to this blog because this is where it started. And because of it, I got threatening emails from Paramount's lawyers. As did Blogger, seeing as how they quickly took the review down.

      So no, it's not ego talking; it's clear fact. Next time you speak, make sure you do your research first so you don't end up looking like a jag who has no idea what he's talking about.
