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.
