Everyone's been a-buzzing about the new TMNT movie, which IMDB refers to as "Ninja Turtles", so I figured I'd give my thoughts: It could work.
I did some digging on the film, and something that confused me is that everyone consistently refers to the film as "Michael Bay's Ninja Turtles". This led me to believe that Bay was directing/writing the film, when in fact this is false. The writers are Josh Applebaum and Andre Nemec of Ghost Protocol fame, and the director is Jonathan "Should-be-banned-from-movie-making-after-Battle: LA" Leibesman. So it confuses me why people constantly refer to this as "Bay's movie", when he's just a producer. He produces God awful horror remakes all the time and no one calls him out on that.
Ignoring that, I'm lukewarm to the film. The early buzz says it's as mind blowing as The Avengers and I do like the writing team, but the director has made a lot of stinkers and Megan Fox as April, while I can visualize it, doesn't exactly ring as great casting. That and the fact that I'm not a die hard TMNT fan, though I did like the animated movie. I guess time will tell, but I'm keeping a semi open mind. All I'll say is the movie better have a bitchin' soundtrack.

Kevin Smith knows how high the expectations are for what was at the time believed to be his final outing. So he takes all the best elements of all his films and puts them all together in one great mixing pot of genius.
There's the brilliant dialogue from Clerks. There's the simplicity of Mallrats. There's the no holds barred comedic stylings of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. But most importantly, it has the heart of Chasing Amy. It's not just insanity for insanity's sake, though that's not to say the film is tame compared to everything else. The conclusion of the film just makes you feel good with how well it all resolves.
Clerks 2 may just be Smith's masterpiece.
