“THE TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES.” The title pretty much says it all, right? These turtles are mutants, not space aliens, as Michael Bay would have it. And there lies all the controversy.
Fans are up in arms about the “TRANSFORMERS” kingpin director’s retooling of a comic book classic. And what is his response? He says that fans should, “take a breath and chill.” Are you starting to wonder if maybe Megan Fox was right to have differences with this guy? Yeah, it’s time to make a lot of money and these fans can just “chill.” The fans are supposed to be the creeps that the likes of Michael Bay have to condescend to. Oh, poor Michael Bay. Well, no, that would be rich beyond a Ninja Turtle fan’s dreams, Michael Bay. Oh you poor little fans, you don’t know what you’re talking about. You haven’t read the script. Here’s the deal, the fans get no respect and the general audience can chill out too.
