Michael Bay + TMNT = OH GOD NOES
Goddammit, I just read that Michael Bay will be directing a live-action film of TMNT. The man's already ruined the Transformer movies for me, what with pissing robots and toilet humor as well as a completely unlikeable main character (I'm looking at you Shia).
Best of all, he's not even going to bother to try adapting the source material apparently. According to him "The turtles are from an alien race, and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny, and completely loveable."
Great, now we can expect yet another childhood classic to be dirtied and made grittier for no fucking reason other than the fact Hollywood thinks fans like it. Here's a hint, no we don't. We like our childhood classics to be like what we remember from childhood, ie. innocent and fun. It's why we liked the Muppet film so much (thank god Michael Bay didn't direct that one -_-). Instead, what will we get with this new live-action film? Aliens. Who will probably piss on each other and have toilet humor in there somewhere as well.
