Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990 film)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles the live action movie is a bit of a departure for our podcast. Yes, this is our first time covering something that’s live action. However we felt that after 50 episodes we have earned the right to continue to cover whatever we please. Nearly everyone on the planet 35 years old or younger has fond memories of the Ninja Turtles franchise, but it seems we need them now more than ever. How well does this movie hold up? Does it stand the test of time? Do the of today still find it enjoyable? These are the questions we constantly set out to answer for you. Bonus content: In this episode we finally decided to bring in our little mini podcast contributor to help us sort through the noise.
