TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTheOriginalMovieHave been a bit of a Ninja Turtles kick these last few weeks.  Since I have been reading the reboot comic book series.  So today I sat down and watch the original live action movie, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.  This movie came out in 1990.  Remember like it was yesterday going to the  theater to see this.  After weeks of my brother and I bugging our father to take us.  All so remember loving this movie.  Thought it was the greatest thing ever.  Lost track of how many times I have seen it.  Have rented on VHS.   Wanting to buy a copy.  Used to see it every were for sale as a kid.  They wanted $30.  That was a lot money, which I never had.  All used to borrow it a lot from a cousin.  When I was in my 20’s remember seen a copy on DVD,  I had to buy it.  Like I was saying that is what I watched again today.   For being 23 years old it holds holds up pretty good.  Mind you, you can see all the flaws.   The rubber suits are pretty bad in some spots.  That doesn’t really matter because all the charm is till there.  It’s very silly, doesn’t make sense at times but over all still every fun.  It is it a cult classic.  There is a live action reboot being made.  Not much info on that but it set to come out in June 2014.  Pretty sure that will capture the migration of a new generation.
