Here’s a quick list of my thoughts about the TMNT teaser trailer that released yesterday :
- Michael Bay sucks. - Megan Fox sucks. - A white Shredder? That’s dumb. - Foot Clan as mercenaries? That’s dumb. - The Turtles look cool, but there’s a few things I would’ve done differently. - Action seems a bit over the top, but that’s typical Michael Bay. - Why so many lens flares? Michael Bay is producing, not directing. - Mikey’s voice acting fits him well. - Mikey is also pretty funny at the end. That was done well. He’s funny without seeming like an idiot. - Leo looks pretty badass. - The scene where the Turtles are sliding down the mountain looks pretty badass, but a bit over the top. Are there snowy mountains in New York City? Can Turtles really obliterate military style humvees? It certainly looked cool. haha - Where’s Splinter? - If that white guy really is Shredder, why? And if “Shredder” really did create the Turtles then how does Splinter fit into that? - Why is Megan Fox April O’Neil again? - Why is Michael Bay involved again? They could’ve paid me much less.
What do you guys think of the trailer and our first look at the heroes in a half shell? Let me know.
A new jam from one of my favorite Southern rappers, “Lac Lac”, is a track that shows off K.R.I.T’s production and his sometimes quick-sometimes smooth delivery. The beat is laid back, but does everything it needs to do to get you to nod your head along. The chorus has a Bone Thugz feel that boasts a catchiness K.R.I.T delivers with his signature Southern slang. A$AP Ferg lends his character to the second verse fitting in with ease.
I can’t wait to hear more from Krizzle and see what happens when his new effort Cadillactica hits retail.
In case you haven’t noticed, I’m trying to be more active on my Tumblr. I’m trying to write more in hopes of sharpening my literary skill. A lot of posts will probably be photos accompanied by brief write ups about the subject of the image. But I’ll also get back to my music reviews, show write ups, movie stuff and more. While the main goal is to get better at writing, I’m also trying to show/express more of the things that have made me who I am. You’ll see more sports stuff, more music stuff, etc. I’m at a point in my life where I’m trying solidify the person I am, and I want to do that by reminiscing about the places, people and things that I love.
I’m working on building my queue as I type this. Stay tuned.
Thanks for your viewership.
