stoli n coke: calufrax: Okay, own up - who keeps giving Michael Bay money?

I can wait all day until who ever did it admits...


Studios don't care about quality. Bay's movies make tons of money. Until his movies start losing money, he'll have no problem getting hired or getting $200 million budgets to make crap.


See M. Night Shyamalan as a prime example of same.  Once he started to lose Hollyweird money, they started saying "no".

Can we take it back to when Eastman and Laird were still writing the comic? I don't want to sound like some kind of hipster douche-bag, but the Turtles were much better before they got turned into a kids' show with color-coded masks.

They still made cheesy puns and smart-assed wisecracks, but the comic was dark and gritty. The sword had an edge. The sais had points. The 'chuks and staff broke bones. The Shredder got a freakin' thermite grenade dropped down the back of his armor.

A group of people collectively known as America. Maybe you've heard of them.


Actually, one of the reasons that Hollywood product has been dumbed down over the last several decades is that the global market is increasingly important and often where movies become profitable. Big, dumb movies are most profitable across global markets so that's what investors bankroll.  Example

This is not because foreign moviegoers are less sophisticated, it's because lowest-common-denominator films don't lose anything in translation; French indie movies are not well received in Russia.

So it's not any one culture's fault. Globalization has made the far-flung collective of least-demanding moviegoers the single most attractive audience for return on investment.

fallingcow: browntimmy: As a grown up I don't give two shiats about it and am fairly certain if I went back and watched the old shows they'd be terrible.

Good, don't ever watch them again.  They are terrible.

Some things have held up (Muppet Babies, Animaniacs).  Some things haven't (David the Gnome, Turtles).


I still like the original Turtles movie and watch it from time to time.  It really is quality especially considering the era and target audience.  Everything after sucked.

I was probably a bigger fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as a kid than all of you. As a grown up I don't give two shiats about it and am fairly certain if I went back and watched the old shows they'd be terrible. I did want to read this thread for the Michael Bay hate parade because we can all agree that while he's rich his legacy is a complete joke.

Most of his movies do better overseas than domestically.  Europe and China love big-budget, low-dialogue action flicks.

I watched a couple of episodes of the new TMNT show on Nickelodeon, and I hated the Animation so much that I simply couldn't keep watching.

Come on.
At least.... AT LEAST.... get an actual hot redhead to play April. There are more than enough for any kind of April you could write for.
You do not need Megan Fox to slut up another movie. There are more than enough hot redheads who could produce just as much sexual attraction WITHOUT TRYING.

Here are some:

If she does not talk, and keeps her hands out of the frame, then she's perfect.

Why is Megan Fox still doing cheesy action movies? Jodie Foster and Natalie Portman were acting in more serious movies when they were still teens. Megan needs to move on to better roles even if she's in a low budget indie.

I thought TMNT was a dead project, after word spread of what Bay wanted to do to the franchise?
