Way back in the early 90’s I actually went to the cinema to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the original film that grossed over $200m at the box-office.  Back then the franchise was huge…..I mean really huge and I went like an excited school kid and sat there in awe and whooped with sheer joy at the pizza loving sewer heroes. 

I even went to see the sequel a year later, but that was an experience I rather not talk about! 

Ok then if you asked! 

My blind date did not turn up (she might have…saw me and left!!!!!!!) and I had to sit there with my mate who spent the entire film sticking his tongue in a girls mouth…..just when things could not have got any worse…..Vanilla Ice turned up on screen and it was that moment I think I outgrowed the turtle franchise.

Endless new toons and even a toon reboot film from a few years ago as not got rid of Splinter and Co and now yet another new franchise is coming to the big screen.

Paramount Pictures is in talks with Jonathan Liebesman (Battle: Los Angeles, Wrath of the Titans) to direct a live-action film for a planned trilogy and even Michael Bay is on board to produce.

The original film saw four turtles who take on humanoid form after coming into contact with radioactive slime. They are trained in karate by their humanoid rat master, Splinter, to fight the evil Shredder and his army of ninjas.

There are strong rumours that this film will change the entire concept for a new generation.

Since my mother sat me down at the age of five years of age and watched a little called Halloween, I have been hooked on horror. There is no other genre that gets me excited and takes me to the edge of entertainment. I watch everything from old, new, to cheap and blockbusters, but I promise all my readers that I will always give an honest opinion, and I hope whoever reads this review section, will find a film that they too can love as much as I do! Have fun reading, and please DO HAVE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!
