As you grow older, you stumble across moments when you are confronted with your childhood. It may be a rerun of a cartoon, a family vacation to place you visited as a kid, aunts who think you are perpetually 9 (I am 31 Aunt Sharon)... I remember laying on blankets watching Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with my brothers. It was one of our favorite things in the world. We had the toys. Our dad crafted us weapons so we could pretend to be the turtle brothers in our backyard. We loved the first movie and waited for every new version with bated breath. The Ninja Turtles were a huge part of my childhood. I know my brothers would say the same thing.
Then in the same fashion as the "Transformers" franchise, Michael Bay destroyed my childhood. He gave me CGI turtles, a weak back story, a villain that was more God than man, horrible dialogue, characters who you couldn't like, a plot full of holes and for some reason Megan Fox as April O'Neil. In a swift push of his lack of production talent, he made me look back at my childhood and pray to all that is holy that he never discovers the Ghostbusters.
Thanks for entering my world,
