Turtle Power, Y’all!

March 26th, 2007 // 1 Comment

I am officially old. A remake of a movie from my childhood that was number one, just before Vanilla Ice was enjoying popularity as a “rap artist,” premiered over the weekend and amassed a staggering $25.45 million in ticket sales. “TMNT,” according to Yahoo! News, “follows the escapades of four hip turtles who mutate into man-sized reptiles and use their martial-arts mastery to fight bad guys.” Sound familiar? Well, if it doesn’t, you’re either too old or young to be reading this blog in the first place. I kid! (Not really. Get out of here, you pop-culture-starved freaks of nature.)

“It’s sequel time, dudes,” said Harvey Weinstein, co-chairman of the Weinstein Co., which is distributing “TMNT” overseas. “We knew from the inception of this project that that the `TMNT’ characters would continue to resonate with audiences across the world.”

Hold on one second? Does this mean that Vanilla Ice is cool again? Oh wait. I checked and nope, he’s still just bitter, angry and looking for new ways to embarrass himself. I’m really hoping VH1 will oblige.

    Vanilla Ice is gross, but TMNT was a great movie. It’s a cute, slightly cheesey, good time.
