Turtles--

Saw TMNT last night. Charming film. I'm having preview-lust for all the neat movies that are coming out of the Great Movie Womb in the next few months. 28 Weeks Later, Harry Potter--the preview shows a half-second crane shot of Delores Umbrage, and she looks perfect perfect perfect...ly hateful--Shreck III, Transformers--Whee, movie overload!

The movie was a lot of fun. Either a strong kid's film or an acceptable retro-flashback targeted at adults, either way. Animation was pretty good for the turtles--it's probably a good thing they're reptiles, because the camera spent a lot of time lingering on crotches. Don't really know why.

April was a little too competent for my taste, she was always supporting cast to my mind, not a sword-swinging action hero. It's good to beef up the ONLY female role in the movie (well, besides Donatello--what, you didn't know?) but almost creating a new character for her, that was overdoing it a bit.

I've got my fingers crossed for Rock Steady and Bee-Bop in the next film, but it seems unlikely, somehow. We'll see what happens.

I wouldn't hold your breath. Bebop and Rocksteady were characters added to the cartoon against the wishes of Eastman & Laird, if memory serves me correctly, and it seems like they've had more control over the content in the appearances of the Turtles since then.

Sad, sad. I can see the need for laughably stupid henchmen in a kiddy cartoon, and they would break the mood of the E&L story substantially.

Actually, I've got my fingers crossed for Leatherhead. :)
