I thought everything with that guy was hilarious.
Yeah, I think Bay has lost it. I'm almost certain I just caught him flaming people on Nostalgia Critic's Pearl Harbor review on Youtube. Why do I think so? This same guy has been popping up on just the same, one video all day & all he is doing is vehemently defending Michael Bay, insulting Nostalgia Critic, insulting anyone who even remotely agrees with the review or says anything even remotely negative concerning Michael Bay at all, even if it's not insulting, and he keeps reverting back to "Transformers made a shit ton of money, so go fuck yourself." Over & over again. And he's getting worse as he goes, even though people are largely ignoring him & not really trying to be insulting.
Anyway, the only two reasons I can see why Megan Fox is in this movie:
1) Megan Fox is fucking Michael Bay
2) Michael Bay has snapped & is blatantly flipping people off.
I'm not even remotely familiar with the TMNT franchise, but even I can think of several actresses who would do great as April O'Niell. Tabrett Bethell, or Ellen Paige, or Jennifer Lawrence, or Lindsey Fonseca, or Noomi Rapace- anyone who is familiar with any of these actresses work, I'm sure, would agree with any of these, at the least? Megan Fox has no acting range beyond her normal everyday personality & she knows it...:redface2:
She'll get raped by Shredder or the Kraang, considering that:
Dragon Tattoo Trilogy [Svenska] - She gets raped and victimized many times.
Sherlock Holmes 2-She's a gypsy that is victimized.
Prometheus- gets raped by an alien species and gives birth to the titular Xenomorphs.
Her entire filmography is of rape , just like Jennifer Connelly always looks out at the sea on a pier, Keanu Reeves commits suicide to thwart evil, Nicholas Cage is an action star who is either on fire . And somehow, Ellen Paige finds herself in every predicament relating to sexual manners including her sexuality, like X-Men and Inception and Juno/Whip it.
Honestly, Tabrett was the one that came to mind & I kind of had to think about the others. I just really want to see her get a good part in something after watching her play Cara in Legend of the Seeker. She's kind of sweet dispositioned, but she can kick ass & she can have this really amazing intensity at times. Plus, even though she's a New Zealander, she can pretty much hide her accent flawlessly.
I think they should just call the whole kit-and-kaboodle "Alien Alien Alien Aliens", and be done with it.
Hope the reboot is good.
As for the new TV series, I need to do some catching up
the new TV series isn't anything special. Its the same nonsense as before though sometimes the humor shines. They've definitely done better for the turtles in the past.
True. I think taking a step back to the zany kind of humor kind of negates the drama a bit, while I love the original cartoon, I'd rather it remain one of a kind.
I don't think thats necessarily fair. I feel that the new series has done a much better job at fleshing out the turtles personalities and made them more than just the leader, the hothead, the nerd, and the party kid. They've become believable personalities with multiple layers. The 2003 and original series dont even compare in this regard.
You can now go back to loving the franchise/movie but doesn't mean we still like Bay.
Hell...if Bay brought Venus back and made her badass...I'd be amused. Screw what Laird said...Saban didn't do her any justice and she ended up as a Robot Chicken gag.:redface2:
"A Vampire Hunting, Dragon Slaying, mystical female Turtle" > "Racist Alien Big Boobied Explosions"
(...and yes...Doug Walker should be knocked out for giving Bay ideas...):laugh:
definately not seeing because of megan fox and they seem to botching it on purpose
Megan Fox definitely wouldnt be my first choice for April ONiel but my god man, at least wait until a trailer comes out.
First set photos
Megan Fox with April O'neil badge
Looks like the Colonel Shrader(Shredder) character may have stayed from that rumored script
I never had the Nostalgia of the 80's Transformers (I grew up with Beast Wars), or TMNT so I never understood Nostalgia hate of anything
I really can't hate Bay any more (Pain and Gain was Awesome and he's only producing TMNT) but I really don't have the power to watch another movie with Megan Fox as a lead
Strictly speaking, the leads of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, not April.
Not in Bay movies. I mean look who the lead in the Transformers movie was. It certainly wasn't any of the transformers. They were pretty much an after thought.
Megan sporting a familiar yellow jacket
She's definitely working as a reporter for Channel 6, as other photos confirm (although she's not wearing the jacket in them)
Will Arnett is playing Vernon, April's snobby and envious cameraman from the 80s cartoon
Good thing this isn't really a Michael Bay movie, then, since his involvement begins and ends at producing it.
If you really think a producer doesn't have a say in how things go in a movie...
