Ninja Turtles Weekend!!!
Of course I went to watch this movie. Okay… okay… I know it seemed kind of lame, but I enjoyed it!
At first I didn’t know if I really wanted to go watch this film in the theater. The trailer seemed interesting, but I didn’t know how I felt about the crazy looking cgi Turtles and the whole Megan Fox/Michael Bay baggage. My husband convinced me to go being that he’s a lifelong fan and it was his birthday weekend.
To be honest, while watching the movie I was so wrapped up with the action and their individual personalities that I completely looked past how weird they looked. I also surprisingly didn’t mind Megan Fox too much. She is a very attractive actress and I was very happily surprised they didn’t try to exploit it (outside of Mikey’s crush on her). She wore plain jeans, a tee, and the same awesome yellow leather jacket throughout the whole movie (laundry must be easy)! Each Ninja Turtle had their own awesome personality and I loved how they bickered back and forth like brothers do. They actually reminded me of my cousins, so they definitely embodied the “Teenage” portion of the Ninja Turtles to the best of my knowledge; I haven’t really encountered any other kind of Ninja Turtles, mutant or otherwise!
I think Donatello was probably my favorite of the Turtles. He had an endearing nerdy personality that appealed to me. OMG was Shredder scary! His armor was amazing and terrifying. I think I got cut just looking at all those blades :p. I also really enjoyed the relationship between Splinter and the Turtles. His fight scene with Shredder was probably my favorite. You could tell he was a father protecting his children and he wasn’t just their master.
All and all 2 radical thumbs up!
