  1. Ninja Turtles Movie Review: How the new version stacks up against the original

    NinjaTurtlesBabestaThe Babesta Crew decided to check out the new Ninja Turtles movie to see how this generation’s version stacked up against the original that we watched as youngsters. For the most part, the major movie reviews gave the film some lousy ratings. However, the Babesta Crew begs to differ, slightly. Yes, in the grand scheme of things, the movie does have some flaws, and surely won’t be considered for best picture at the Academy Awards. But we focused on watching from the perspective of a kid, not a snooty film critic. And all-in-all, we thought the movie was pretty good, and will make for a cool outing for the little ones this month. So if looking for something cool for the kids this weekend, strap the little ones up in the dopest strollers and take them to the movies!Let’s start with the good things! The CGI’d version of Splinter and the Turtles were definitely a huge upgrade compared to the lame “football mascot” costumed ninjas from our generation’s movie. This allowed for way more awesome fight and action scenes with spectacular martial arts exhibitions. The comparison is similar to the super lame light saber fights in the first generation of Star Wars films compared to the breathtaking ones in their new generation of movies.The film also did a great job with the character personalities. The original Ninja Turtles that we knew were cool and funny dudes, and they were successful in keeping this intact. In fact they possibly improved on it. The turtles and the rest of the characters definitely seemed like the same “people” we remember, and maybe even a little better.Also, the film was set in New York City. Ahh New York City, a film can never be that terrible when set in this wonderful place as you can get by
