Movie and Cartoon reviews

I've decided to expand TMNT Entity! Instead of merely boasting reviews of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle comic books, we'll now be covering the franchise's other media outlets, such as the movies, cartoons and occasional live action television series or special (god help us all).

You can find these reviews (as well as other non-TMNT articles by me) over at Adventures in Poor Taste; a site I regularly contribute to. For the sake of convenience, however, I'll index them all here!

i was wondering when you'd do a review for turtles forever ( recently bought this on ebay )

i cant say i watched much of the 4kids series beyond season 2 and i tend to avoid the 87 cartoon exactly because its over the top goofy with the turtles being ineffectual clowns

...maybe thats why i like turtles forever so much it shows what doofuses the 87 turtles are
in my opinion the best thing the 87 series did ( other then you know ignite turtle powah ) is make splinter yoshi turned in to a rat not yoshi's pet

i can believe splinter being yoshi and as such being a master ( as well as wise and the rest ) i have trouble accepting splinter being a mutated rat then again this is a series about 4 ninja turtles
so if i can buy that

having not much of a touchstone for either of the two versions for me turtles forever stands mostly on its own as a last hurrah of the tmnt under mirage

and as such its a great movie which i rank near the first live action movie and the cgi movie ( yes i actually liked the cgi movie it had gorgeous animation and some great fight scenes its story was a bit tepid but no worse then 2 or 3 and thankfully less "comedic" too )

now viacom lets see what you can do......

I still think the Metalhead episode had one ridiculous flaw.

And one inconsistency with the other episodes.

The flaw being that once there is a big blobby weak spot on top of the robot, controlling the robot, why not attack the weak spot? Or acknowledge it?

The only real inconsistency is that the stick he complains about in this episode didn't work too badly in episodes before and after this.

I love your reviews, but I'm surprised you have no reviews on the 2003 version. This doubly surprises me since you seem to speak of it fondly in other reviews. It was my version growing up, and it's a little sad how quickly it has been forgotten. Any chance of just one review for each season?

As we speak, I've finished up my Next Mutation reviews and sent the last installment to my editor at AIPT. The 2003 TMNT cartoon is next! Looking forward to that one.

Though I did jump ahead and review Turtles Forever (linked in the index). But after doing a few episodes of the Nickelodeon cartoon I decided I'd rather do each series in chronological order (which is why I put the Nick reviews on hiatus, for anyone who is wondering).
