RELAX nerds. Take a breath. Play a video game. Sip on a Mountain Dew. You are going to live. The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is going to be fine.
I distinctly remember seeing the first movie in the theaters in 1990. I was a fifth grader at Franklin School in North Andover, and my neighbor PJ invited my brother Andrew (then in first grade) and me to go with him and his mother. Oh how we loved it. And then we went to McDonald’s for dinner. Yes, fancy is the word.
What else do I remember about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the movie, in 1990? That I thought it was a cinematic masterpiece. That it was my favorite movie since Ernest Went to Camp. You know what I thought was great in 1990? Milli Vanilli. In other words, my taste from that era is not to be trusted.
So people who are worried that this new movie won’t hold up, it is okay. Your life will go on.
Not sure if it did for these turtles from Ernest Goes to Camp though. One of my all time favorite scenes from a movie! I had to do it.
