History repeats and James is now a TMNT fan as his father was before him. He's been talking about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie for a while now, and in a moment of weakness at some point I may have promised I'd take him to see it.
Today I read the review of the movie in the Star and learnt it's not that funny, not as charming as it once was and it's neither a good time for kids or parents. Ouch. I'm wondering what would happen if I simply forgot to take him but made up for it by taking him to something good. Then, we could watch the new crappy TMNT when it hits TMN next March or so. I'm thinking this plan is crazy enough to work.
It's a shame the new TMNT doesn't measure up to the 1990 film I remember so fondly. The sequel to that film featured an embarrassing performance of "Ninja Rap" by Vanilla Ice. As difficult as this is to watch, I fear the new film is an even tougher pill to swallow.
Go Ninja, go ninja, go!
