Thirty Years Ago

It's hard to believe it's been thirty years.

I recall first hearing about this back in the day and I was surprised. Never got to see this one in theaters; the closest I could get to experiencing the film were through the few commercials and preview clips they'd show on TV... as well as the comic book adaptation that was quite excellent. Once I got to see the film, it was probably the greatest thing I've seen.

And you know what? Thirty years later, it still holds up.

Other Turtle movies have come along the way and the quality varies... but at the end of the day, I always go back to this one. It's a great take on the material and a nice amalgamation of the popular versions of these characters. Honestly, if someone were to ask me the best introduction to Turtle lore, I'd go with this movie. All the good bits, none of the bad ones.

I can't ever go back to the old cartoon... never had the guts... but the movie is fine. Better than fine. It's great.
