    Though, nothing can replace the original movie

    Live-action Transformers coming next year and now this?. When does the G.I. Joe movie go into production? Maybe they could get Don Johnson for that one, too (anybody get that reference?)

    The original comic was actually kick-ass.

    I used to play this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtles_%26_Other_Strangeness

    Jesus, I was/am a powertool.

    I'm with you, zimbabwe. Used to play that too.

    And I used to have a bunch of the original comic. Think my brother has/had them. I wish they'd do a movie more true to those than to the kiddie stuff TMNT became.

    I was the neighborhood dungeon master. Or mutant master.

    The Multidimensional (time-travel) expansion to that game was awesome.

    I'm feeling principled aberrant today.

    End of TMNT role-playing inside jokes.

    Hey, it's all good.

    I made a crack about a movie that was seen by about as many people as the average WNBA game.

    Maybe the movie theatres will serve pizza instead of popcorn specifically for the TMNT release

    Dear Weinstein company,

    Saw the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the day it was released. I rode my bike up to the mall after school and reveled in the greatness that is heroes on the half shell. Now you have this.

    This movie ... well, just brings tears to my eyes. Tears of joy.

    I love you, Leonardo. Your level-head always was my favorite part of the gang.

    Rafael? You surly, big-brother as protector bit got old, but God love you ... you're a great man.

    And Donatello, despite being voiced by Corey Feldman in the movie (seriously), you always were my second fave. Lost in your latest project, looking to help the team.

    Oh, and crazy ol' Michaelangelo. Put the nunchucks away before you hurt yourself and have a slice of pizza, you rebel, you.

    Eagerly awaiting March 2007,

    TMNT geek.

    T-U-R-T-L-E Power!
    T-U-R-T-L-E Power!
    T-U-R-T-L-E Power!
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
    In a half shell, they're the heroes four.
    In this day and age who could ask for more?
    The crime wave is high with muggings mysterious.
    Our police and detectives are furious,
    'Cause they can't find the source,
    Of this lethally evil force.
    This is serious so give me a quarter.
    I was a witness, get me a reporter!
    Call April O'Neil in on this case, and
    You'd better hurry up, there's no time to waste!
    We need help, like quick, on the double.
    Have pity on the city, man it's in trouble!
    We need heroes like the Lone Ranger
    When Tonto came pronto, when there was danger.
    They didn't say they'd be there in half an hour,
    'Cause they displayed...Turtle Power!
    [Refrain]
    Now our Miss Reporter was hot on the trail.
    Determined to put these crooks in jail.
    She spied the bad guys and saw what happened,
    But before she knew it, she fell in a trap and caught!
    Yeah, she was all alone.
    With no friends, and no phone.
    Now this was beyond her worst dreams,
    'Cause she was cornered by some wayward teens.
    Headed by Shredder they were anything but good.
    Misguided, unloved, they called them The Foot.
    They could terrorize and be angry youths, and
    They mugged the people. Who needed proof?
    Then from out of the dark came an awesome sound!
    Shouted "Cowabunga!" as they hit the ground.
    From the field of weeds the heroes rescued the flower
    'Cause they possessed...Turtle Power!
    Do you stand for what you believe in?
    And find the strength to do what's right?
    That's TURTLE POWER!
    Heroes in half shell, they're on a mission.
    When there's a battle got the enemy wishin'
    That they stayed at home, instead of fightin'
    These ninja masters with moves like lightnin'.
    They were once normal, but now they're mutants.
    Splinter's the teacher so they are the students.
    Leonardo, Michaelangelo, and Donatello,
    Make up this group with one other fellow
    Raphael. He's the leader of the group
    Transformed from the norm by the nuclear goop.
    Pizza's the food that's sure to please,
    These ninjas are into pepperoni and cheese.
    Back to the story, it's not hard to find.
    Ninjas not just of the body but of the mind.
    These are the words that their master instructed,
    But a letter from Shredder has Splinter abducted.
    That was the last straw, spring into action.
    Step on The Foot, now they're gonna lose traction.
    Now this is for real, so you fight for justice,
    Your shell is hard so you shout, "They can't bust us four!
    Like some old coffee table."
    Since you were young you've been willing and able
    To defeat the snake, protect the weak,
    Fight for rights and the freedom to speak.
    Now the villian is showin' so you take a stand.
    Back to the wall, put your sword in you hand.
    Remember the words of your teacher, your master:
    "Evil moves fast, but good moves faster!"
    Then light, shining for your illumination:
    Good versus Evil equal Confrontation.
    So when you're in trouble to give in and go sour,
    Try to rely on YOUR...Turtle Power!

    I'm a big turlte head and just as long as it's better than TMNT III, I'll be happy. In fact, I'm sure this one will be better than the two which followed the original. It's said to be darker and true to the comic (which is kind of odd because the original comic was a parody of some Marvel stuff..anyway.). I'm stoked.
