First and for most cue my damn music: The Prime Time Players Entrance Video
Dude I have no issues with you believe it or not a dude this passionate about the turtles and want the best for the franchise I gotta tip my hat to you even tho I disagree with you on the movie(and DMC). I get it why people are cautious fans don't want the turtles get the Revenge of the fallen treatment, no character development, racial stereotypes, story doesn't make a lick of sense and the turtles take the back seat where the movie focus on the humans and you don't get the full turtle experience towards the end of the movie.
I never said this movie will be the greatest thing Turtle ever, all I said let me see more before I judge it, all we got is two trailers and an ad. And if you can make your judgement off two trailers and an ad then god bless ya. I don't mind the turtles looks because after all they supposed be real turtles that got mutated into human form. From what I've seen from real turtles they ain't cute plus real turtles do have noses. For those complaining about their looks please pick up Soul's Winter tell me how they look there and they're in line how they look in Out of the Shadow. Plus if they went the safe route and went half way between cartoon and real folks would complain about how they chicken out making them look real.
Back to the topic: there are 3 groups of people hating on this movie 1. folks who hate anything post 1987 show. 2. folks who hate Michael Bay movies but still go out and see them and 3.people who just fear the unknown. And each time I meet these people I pick their argument apart, like the turtles size they concede the fact the turtles in the 2k3 series were also big and few human characters were bigger than them. On their looks they also concede the fact there has been other media that went the realistic look and different designs(again look at Soul's Winter or popular fan art) and the Shredder they also concede to me the one Shredder they romanticized about(the 2k3 Shredder) he wasn't Asian himself. Plus Kevin Eastman has given his thumbs up considering he work with the team that wrote the script.
So what are the people saying "I'm not going to see it" or "I know it's going to be bad" base this idea on? Megan Fox? While she's not the greatest actress in the world neither she's the worst. This is why no one takes internet fans seriously, they base their opinions on nothing but feelings.
