My brain has been conned into giving Michael Bay a handicap. With Age of Extinction and the first installment of this TMNT reboot being his most recent participations that I've subjected myselft too, I had a super SUPER soo-per low bar when I decided to watch this TMNT2: Out of the Shadows trailer.
I'm a little ashamed to say that I liked it. As in life, I try not to let old offenses continue to hold reign over me, so the fact that the turtles still look like they belong in some 1990's hybrid of Super Mario Bros and Tank Girl isn't shocking to me this time. They are what they are... and despite my hate of their roided out features, that's old hat.
If I choose to excuse all the old dumb things, the new dumb things aren't that awful really... I think I may like this one...
As of Trailer #1, I'm going to throw my vote behind this one. As long as we don't get any more Megatron/Shredder with magnetic razor blades, I say it will come in at like 65% on Rotten Tomatoes, and I think all involved should consider that a monumental win.
