"Leia, I’m adding your mother to my list of people I never wish to fight. Currently, only your mother is on that list" - Gaius

Just saw the new TMNT movie.

Or maybe I should say, the April o’Megan Fox movie, featuring some Turtles. Well, it’s not as bad as Transformers, as the turtles show up early enough and are featured prominently enough. Overall it’s an average summer action flick.

Now if I had to pick any one thing to really complain about, it would be the villains. The foot clan and Shredder suck in this movie. The Foot clan isn’t even a ninja clan, it’s a bunch of thugs with guns who are as generic as any other action movie grunts. Karai serves no real purpose other then to have someone named Karai in the film. Shredder himself is one of the most one-dimensional baddies I’ve ever seen, he has zero motivation for his plan, which seems to be mostly be conceived by our movie original villain: Eric Sachs. Earlier drafts of the script had Sachs being Shredder and it really shows in the film. While they made it so Shredder wasn’t now suddenly some random white guy, they really didn’t bother changing much and it leads to several scenes where there are some pretty big holes that could only be filled if Sachs and Shredder were the same person. Honestly they should have kept the two the same character and just had him be Oroku Saki, let the Foot be actual ninjas and not generic gun thugs, and it would have made the movie feel a good 50 times better then it did.

Looks like Crystal isn’t going to be a 1:1 adaption after all, Jadeite didn’t die in the fight here and fled instead, and can be seen in the next episode preview. So my complaint is if you aren’t going literal 1:1 adaption here… WHY DIDN’T YOU LET TUXEDO MASKS HAVE ROSES?

I swear Kubo if this ends with Hitsuguya stabbing Momo again somehow…

Oh my God, it’s literally a New Game+ and Yu carried over his MAXIMUM SWAG stat.

Come on people, American copyright laws. This is why Gundam’s name is now GundHam. Like I know the Gundam series has kind of fallen out of the sight of most people, but the copyright is still there.

As for Souda being Soda, I think the localization team just couldn’t help but take the easy joke of having a character named after soda pop.
