So the new trailer for the new Ninja Turtles movie is out.  Reactions are pretty mixed, ranging from "hey, that actually looks pretty cool" to "yeah, this is gonna suck."  I've personally been a Turtle fan for 25 years now, and the movie even comes out on the anniversary of when I got into them, so regardless of how it turns out I'm probably going to see it anyway.  Still, while people are coming with several reasons for why it should be avoided, I thought I'd take a few points on how it could be decent.

1 It actually looks like it's focusing on the Turtles as a team.  It's written by the same writers who gave us Mission Impossible 4 a few years back, and they turned that into less of the "Tom Cruise and friends" show that the first three films were and instead focused on the entire IMF squad.  From what is seen in trailer we do see the foursome acting like a team, which is more than you could say about that sucky excuse CGI film several years ago.  Though I will admit it's just the trailer and the CGI movie had the same false impression only to sideline Mikey and Don and turn Leo into an absolute, full-of-himself dick who insists on remaining as inactive as possible, so that's kind of a double edged sword at this point.
2 Kevin Eastman helped oversee production on this.  The same man who helped create the characters and is co-writing the current comic.  Considering how excellent the comic is I'd say he still has a pretty good idea of how the franchise should go, so I trust that he wouldn't let the production screw up what they're doing.  And seriously, if you're even a casual comic reader I really suggest checking the new comic out.  It's really, really good, and manages to throw in clever references from the 80's cartoon in there without turning them into cheap gimmicks like the POS that is the new cartoon.
3 Even though there is a toyline, it's actually being backed by a different company rather than Playmates.  Which means that they won't turn it into a 90 toy commercial with no other purpose or reason for the film to exist like they're doing with said cartoon.

So, there we are so far.  While I doubt it'll be as great as the comic from IDW, I do have some faith that it'll at least be better than, again, the CGI film or the new cartoon.  Let's see if Turtle Power actually holds up in four months.

A bit of a revamp from my previous deviant account. Right now I'm working in a couple bits of fanimation and audio dubs that I hope will be released over the next couple of months. I'm also working on a couple projects myself, partially to also help me with my goal of one day becoming a voice actor.

Just for fun I'm also trying my hand at a co-op LP series with a friend of mine, specifically for games that have 2-player campaigns. Here's a list of co-op games that are currently planned (in other words, titles I currently own)

Army of Two (we did footage of this one. We probably won't be continuing it)
Beavis & Butt-head
Champions of Norrath
Contra: Hard Corps.
Dynasty Warriors: Gundam
Gears of War 2
Gears of War 3
HALO: Reach
James Bond 007: Everything or Nothing
Kane and Lynch: Dead Men
King of the Monsters 2 (completed and in progress making it)
LEGO Harry Potter: Years 1-4
LEGO Indiana Jones 1
LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Mario Kart Double Dash
Marvel Ultimate Alliance
Medal of Honor: Rising Sun
Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (Super NES)
The Punisher (Sega Genesis)
Sailor Moon (Super Famicom)
Star Wars Rebel Strike: Rogue Squadron III
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Hyperstone Heist (this one's probably going to be redone next year. I wasn't too proud of the second half)
The Simpsons Game
X-Men Legends
X-Men Legends II: Rise of the Apocalypse
