Saint Patrick's Day

So here I am celebrating a Catholic holiday. Well, not really celebrating. Just having a really good day.

So this morning we went out to see the new TMNT. That's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to those 'not in the know'. Victoria won some sort of Union-Tribune sweepstakes and we got to go to this premiere showing of the movie. I'm just going to start out by telling you what I thought. If you liked the action and humor of the original series, this movie is for you. The animation is updated to current standards and the voices aren't the same but the movie absolutely ROCKS! I think this is just why the studios host events like this. They want to have people tell all their friends how great their movie is. In this case, they're going to get their wish because they did this right.

In fact, let me go so far as to say this: I loved the Transformers original cartoon, toys and comics. Since the original movie back in 1986, they have completely ruined it. So what to do? How about following what TMNT did. How about keeping all the original characters. Either keep them as their original "vehicle" mode or use their current equivalent (not 100 years in the future). Then simply update the animation to current standards and this series will be a huge hit with kids yet again. As of now there's Beast Wars, Beast Machines, RID, Energon and God knows what else. Keep the originals. Update the animation. DONE. Simple, easy and hard to get wrong.

So to sum up, GO SEE TMNT! I want to go see it again already and I don't say that about many movies.
