The original TMNT movie does not hold up particularly well. While some of these criticisms are off-base (it was not uncommon for small – portable – TVs to have batteries, back in the day), there are some really goofy things going on.

Incidentally, I was watching Drew Carey Show the other day. There was a scene where you could pretty clearly see a dude standing in Drew’s bedroom in a scene where there very much would not be some dude in Drew Carey’s bedroom. Oops.

About the Author

Will Truman (trumwill) is a southern transplant in the mountain east with an IT background who bides his time taking care of their daughter while his wife brings home the bacon. You will probably be relieved to know that he does not generally refer to himself in the third-person except when he's writing short bios on his web page.
