To be honest, when the following trailer first came across my virtual desk, I thought it was a joke. In fact, I'm still not entirely convinced that it isn't a joke. Michael Bay, master of explosions and killing all of my childhood memories, is about to release a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie starring Megan Fox as April O'Neil. Like, it's bad enough you've destroyed Transformers for me, Michael Bay, but now you also want to make me turn against Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo, too?
I have a lot of thoughts and questions about this new film, which hits theaters August 8. The most important one being this: Will Vanilla Ice be appearing in it? And will he perform his mega-super-awesome hit song "Ninja Rap"? In case you've forgotten the song in question, it's the one with the catchy chorus of, "Go ninja, go ninja, GO!" Look, I've even embedded it here for you:
The rest of my thoughts and questions include:
– Remember the awesomeness of the cartoon theme song?
– I wonder whether I can find copies of the three films made in the '90s...
– Megan Fox? Seriously?
It's not that I don't want a live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film—in fact, I'm totally going to see this—but I've been burned by Bay before. I'm worried he's going to taint my childhood memories again. Either way, check out the first official trailer and then decide whether or not you approve of this madness:
Whaddaya think? Will you see go see this movie? Is Megan Fox as April a horrible decision? And most importantly, which turtle is your favorite?
