LOL YES YES YES!!!

Can’t wait to see NC and NNEEEEEEEERRRRDDD reunite!!

Also, I’m probably going to be singing “Thirty Something Nerdy Critics” the entire trip home from work today.

The MegaNerd

At this point I think there’s some unspoken rule that if anything TMNT happens they have to review it together.

So much epicness. My computer can’t take it!

Brehmstorm

Then it’s time to upgrade, because the PS4 and Xbox One aren’t worth it.

Arwijn
Guest

That is one hell of a teaser! This is going to be interesting indeed!

SpeedyEric
Guest

No, it’s gonna be as predictable as NC’s 10 minute long rant on Transformers: Age of Extinction.

The MegaNerd
Guest

So you’re just going to ignore the fact that James is part of this too?

FataMorganaPseudonym

Then go ahead. Tell us how the review’s going to go if it’s so predictable. We’re waiting.

looks the best out of any of the turtles reviews so far,like an event.

The heart of the Ninja Turtles thing kinda worries me,just from hearing that you know he’s going to try to tell us our business at the end

I’m also worried that they may vindicate the people who hate on haters of this movie for no reason,because let’s be honest,the majority of NC fans don’t have minds of their own and unless they have a strong opinion on something already,they’re essentially like “What he said.”

SpeedyEric
Guest

I have a mind of my own, and I like movies like Daredevil, the Ghost Rider films, The Matrix Trilogy, and this one. Also, I’m not that negative unless it’s for good reasons. For example, too many people like Family Guy, and I hate it, because of the constant use of cutaway jokes, joke that will eventually be dated, unlikeable characters, and jokes that go on for too fuckin’ long.

The MegaNerd
Guest

Hey! I also like Ghost Rider, I also like Daredevil, I also hate a popular cartoon series (South Park, It could be so much funnier if it didn’t rely on shock humour so bloody much) and I have mind of my own!
It’s almost like we’re…human beings! With our own personalities and interests!!!

saint22
Guest

if you get past the shock humour, south park is actually the most brilliant animated show ever. is way too clever to just see it as shock humour, thats just their style

DevMo

>I hate it, because of the constant use of cutaway jokes, joke that will eventually be dated, unlikeable characters, and jokes that go on for too fuckin’ long.

I can’t tell whether you’re talking about Family Guy or Nostalgia Critic.

SpeedyEric
Guest

The Nostalgia Critic sketches are funny, because it’s in relation to what’s being reviewed.

Backhand
Guest

i forgot to say I’m the same way(if I don’t care about the subject enough)

It’s undeniable after a TGWTG or CA(whatever) producer has an opinion,in following comments sections more people agree with it,than not. Just try to go to a comments section,outright disagree with say,Linkara,and see how many commenters attack you.

SpeedyEric
Guest

This episode is gonna be full of nitpicking, and I actually like the 2014 film.

Moviemantweeter1999
Guest

That was o.k. but can’t wait to see the cruddy movie be Tared apart

dcmarvelimage

Wish they could bring in someone that knew the newer cartoons honestly im sick of people acting like the 80’s cartoon is the only thing in the TMNT that matters it would be like if Batman fans only talked Adam West. Ah well James reviewed the comics so I guess they atleast know the basics

CainZeros
Guest

You didn’t watch the Critic’s crossover with the Blockbuster Buster, did you? There was a bit in there that made it pretty obvious that the Critic enjoys the Nickelodeon Turtles series.

The MegaNerd
Guest

Pshaw! Do you honestly expect a fan of the Nostalgia Critic to watch other people on the site? If there’s one thing the fan reaction to the Nostalgia Critic ending taught us it’s that to most fans only the NC exists on this site.

saint22
Guest

well. most other reviewers in this site suck. i like rap critic and renegade cut, sometimes i watch new guys or the snob and the blockbuster buster out of sheer boredom and they never get a laugh out of me. if anything i wanna punch the blockbuster buster, he annoys me

dcmarvelimage
Guest

Actually MegaNerd I watch Linkara Cinema Snob Midnight Screenings and Todd in the Shadows your ignorant assumption is false.

The MegaNerd
Guest

I think saint22 just proved my point.

dcmarvelimage
Guest

Chainzeros that was done for a joke and should not be taken at face value good sir.

TheSKARD1
Guest

Spoiler: The heart of the franchise was selling toys.

The MegaNerd
Guest

You’re quite the cynic aren’t you?

TheSKARD1
Guest

I may be a cynic but I was also right.

SpeedyEric
Guest

I actually have the Turtles, Splinter, and Shredder figures from the movie’s toyline.

FataMorganaPseudonym
Guest

Right, because they sold a crapload of toys during those years before the cartoon came out, when it was just the Mirage comic. Selling toys was all TMNT was ever about, sure.

vetom
Guest

hate to break it to you mate but TMNT was very obscure when it was just the comic, a toy company called Playmate wanted to produce TMNT action figures but found the original source material a little to violent for little kids so they have to soften it, the company’s solution make a cartoon with kiddie friendly turtles, and that cartoon was the one that introduce them to the world, so yeah if you take the 80’s show everyone uses as starting point selling toys was all they where about, don’t believe?

Woooo! I’m really looking forward to this! It’ll be great to see the Nerd and the Critic team up again…

NerdCritic
Guest

I know this movie is ot everyone’s liking but I still love it. Plus the sequel is going to fulfill what the old ones didnt.

The MegaNerd
Guest

Krang?

SpeedyEric
Guest

Close. Rocksteady and Beebop.

Hinatachan360

I wonder if Miyamoto Usagi will make a future appearance? I love me some ronin rabbit, but I’m kind of wary of how a Bay-onized Usagi would be portrayed. The bond between Usagi and Leonardo forged through bushido is the stuff of legends. Though it would be pretty awesome to see Usagi on the big screen…I have my doubts the Bay would get the character right.

Can’t wait, gentlemen!

Light
Guest

I’ll watch but I’m afraid they’re in the end going to say that it’s bad but it’s a good kind of bad or a kind of bad that has some good aspects of it. I haven’t seen it, not do I want to, I’ve boycotted Michael Bay and Megan Fox movies completely and I don’t care if it’s nostalgic, I won’t watch anything that involves directors, producers or actors or anyone major contributor that I hate. I won’t even partake in this stupid thing everyone calls ‘hate-watching’.

The MegaNerd
Guest

Hate-watching? What the flying friggin’ heck is that?

Light
Guest

In a nutshell, it’s a pathetic excuse to watch something to cover up the fact that they are bloody hypocrites. Like this: https://youtu.be/IvJD9fHS8Hk?t=3m

The more accepted definition is when one watches something for absolutely nothing but the sake of the enjoyment one derives from mocking or criticizing it.

saint22
Guest

pirate it. dont give money to those people. thats what any good citizen does

SpeedyEric
Guest

To saint22- whatever happen to “rent it” or “borrow it from a friend.” Why does everything have to do with piracy? Oh, and BTW, piracy is ILLIGAL.

The MegaNerd
Guest

🙂 I’ve found a cyberspace brother!
The word is ILLEGAL by the way.

SpeedyEric
Guest

What with all the stupid Michael Bay and Megan Fox hate? People always say thay hate these people, but give no reason to why.

vetom
Guest

then probably you never really listen or read beyond “I hate them because..” PEOPLE ARE ALWAYS SAYING WHY THEY HATE THEM, on Michael Bay is quite simple: all of his movies are overused CGI and explosions with really crappy stories in other words shit, Megan Fox is not an actress she is just a piece of ass (an overrated one at that) for you to stare a for the whole whatever movie she’s in, in other words with a bay/fox matchup screw the story, screw character development, screw creativity, is just explosions, CGI and ass.

Hinatachan360

Megan Fox’s acting is just plain awful. When she’s on the screen she’s just there, taking up space. I can’t decide whose acting is worse. Hers or Kristen Stewart’s. I haven’t seen the TMNT 2014 movie yet. Not sure if I ever will. I grew up on the comic books and enjoyed the characters, including the villains. The Shredder was actually terrifying to me, as he should be. And April in the comics was intelligent, resourceful, and interesting. Megan Fox epically fails at portraying any of those traits in movies I have seen her in.
The MegaNerd
Guest

Great! Can’t wait to see it tomorrow! This was a great teaser!
(humming) “thirty something nerdy critics…”

BlueHero

Got to see this at Zenkaikon. Amazing time getting to meet you and Rob. Was so glad to see you pop into the Charity Auction as well.

The MegaNerd
Guest

Sounds cool, You’re lucky, I would kill just to meet any of these guys just once in my entire life.

PS Hey buddy, would you by any chance happen to be blue da ba dee da ba die?

The MegaNerd
Guest

Hey everyone! Who do you think the NC hates more; Michael Bay or M. Night Shyamalan?

SpeedyEric
Guest

The smartest choice would be Shyamalan, because he hasn’t made the big bucks since Signs, because all his movies since Signs suck hard. Bay’s Transformers movies a still making money, because they know their audience. Oh, and the Bat hate has gone overrated since the release of Revenge of the Fallen.

Akai
Guest

This is going to be good!

Chicken Parma
Guest

Who did the song? Was is Skitch, or Rob Scallon, or both?

vetom
Guest

but if they find the heart of the franchise that means that they’ll find out that the franchise was technically destroyed since the 80’s cartoon, people seem to forget that that was the first time the turtles where used as a big commercial to sell toys

Mc t zimms
Guest

This is going to be shit
*the shit*
The best shit that anyone has shat.

valereth
Guest

That made me happy

RD
Guest

Catchy theme song. Though I’m kinda worried the ‘heart of the franchise’ thing will be something pretentious when let’s face it it started as a parody comic of Daredevil and then turned into a silly cartoon to flog toys. :p

RD
Guest

Also, having seen the 2014 TMNT, I can say…it was just okay. Fairly average blockbuster flick, and it had some nice parts, like the turtle’s personalities and their interactions with Splinter. Yeah there were also some annoying bits, like Mikey’s weird infatuation with April and the lame bad guy plan, but overall it at least didn’t bore me like Transformers 4.

And, as James said, it was better than Turtles 3. Maybe not saying much but oh well.

THE CINEMATIC MIND
Guest

The best weapon to temporary vanish Michael Bay is boxes. Can’t wait.

JohnnyElRojo
Guest

Everybody knows that the best TMNT are the early two thousands version.

Even though I don’t really liked the Nerd, I’m still really excited for this episode to come today. 😀
