Movies You Should Be Watching: ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’
Posted on August 11, 2014
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles has been the surprise movie of the season. Was it outstanding? No. Did they innovate the children’s movie genre? Not really. But the movie managed to not suck, and that was a major victory.
I didn’t want to see the movie, but we’ve been making a habit of taking our small children to the movies whenever possible because a giant screen and tub of popcorn can calm the most rowdy of children. Entering the theater, I was prepared to hate the movie. From trailers I knew that these turtles had human nostrils and Megan Fox somehow won the role of April O’Neil, reason enough to project a few Razzie Award wins in the future. But in the end, I came out smiling.
