Which ones are your favorites??

Let’s talk about Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, shall we? In the comment section, leave your thoughts. Here are mine: I wish that movie makers wouldn’t feel the need to deviate so much from origin storylines such as this one in order to make it different if the original works. It’s a small matter in terms of this one, but still. I don’t mind the looks of the turtles and I’m actually impressed by how they look. Still not feeling Megan Fox but at least she says nothing in the entire trailer. I can’t wait to see Shredder in his suit! We’ll see. What are YOUR thoughts?
