Michael Bay is becoming more and more like a multi million-dollar budget Uwe Boll.

I do not approve. Why do you keep caring? If you don't like a movie/series/whatever - don't watch it.

I do like this movie/series/whatever and thus why I care. I don't think they should make it like that sorry for having an opinion that's related to the topic thread

@gaijin: It's hard not to be when someone talks back to me in an argumentative manner. It's my opinion and one that I shouldn't be badgered about on a thread talking about how this will suck. So why pick on just me?

First off, I wasn't picking on you - it was more of a general question regarding everyone raging on the internet about some minor cultural item that really doesn't matter at all. Second, If you don't want dissenting opinions, don't write things in a forum that is open to discussions. Third, try to read things without actually having a personal stake in it.

Ok, allow me to take it to a new level: why do you care about caring, Gaijin?

Nah, you don't have to answer it. I don't care why you care.

Look up "floccinaucinihilipilification". It's a fun term, not only to say or write.

Caring can be fun, too, sometimes.

It's not the caring that I really mind. I care about things too. It's just the sheer outrage about tiny insignificant shit that bugs me. And it bugs me because it influences my life even though I'd prefer it if it didn't. That's why.

Isn't existence a self-complicating phenomenon? Particles form stars and planets, energy shapes the substances, substances create life forms, life turns non-organic into organic, organisms evolve into complex entities, complexity leads to advanced life functions, which in turn allow living beings to think, thought leads to interaction with environment, interaction with environment makes societies, societies create civilizations, from which culture and education, and a wide variety of other related phenomena spring to life.

And before you know it, you get people raging over distribution of virtual goods in dreamlike worlds (i.e. ninja looters in World of Warcraft).

It happens. People can get so involved in increasingly complex features of the universe, they temporarily have their field of view narrowed down. Which leads to even more complex creations.

Well that was deep. But yeah, they are Teenage MUTANT Ninja Turtles, not Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles. Bay should get his facts straight.

It's not an outrage, it's more like eh this looks like crap. So let's talk about it. Didn't make a huge impact on my life that Michael Bay is making this movie. Just something to discuss you know? My original post was actually not even super extreme. I didn't think it would turn into a shitstorm, makes me want to not even post anymore

Rather mild shitstorm, I'd say. 'Snot even raining poo yet.

I'll repeat the words of Eddie Murphy: "All y'all people who are easily offended.. you should probably get the fuck out now."

"Hurr durr they said something negative about that thing so they're obviously OFFENDED."

No, we're not necessarily offended per se, we just think the idea of retconning the Turtles' origin story like that is a shitty idea.
And even if people are offended by it, what the fuck is it to you? Was it your idea to make them aliens? No? Well if you don't like people talking about something you have zero investment in, don't read the bloody topic.

It's been my job to read through all pages of this forum for almost ten years, it's a habit that's hard to stop. It's also not quite that simple, and you know it. But if you really want to be a dick about it, I'm sure we can sort it all out in a rather swift fashion.

And for the record, if you read about an idea that's bad and you take the time to write a forum post saying how bad it is - you're way too invested in it all from the start and should probably chill the fuck out. And that goes for you too, Palantyre. It'll be better for you in the long run. ;P

Sure, but I wouldn't call "Hey that looks dumb, I wonder what my pals over on the Machinae forums think about this" anywhere near "way too invested". You don't necessarily have to be all CONSUMED IN RIGHTEOUS INDIGNATION to post a thread about something! People on the internet are also pretty prone to use hyperbole so you have tons of people saying they hate something when it's honestly just something that mildly annoys them.

Oh and guys they could still totally be mutant aliens.

I'll be honest with you: I don't think I am even going to watch the movie. :P We'll see, Caranfin. Most of those movies inspired by comic books prove to be alright in the end anyway, don't they? I only watched Iron Man. I don't know Tony Stark's past or what is canon and what is not, but it was a pretty decent B-grade action movie in my book.

But then again, I enjoyed watching Uwe Boll's Postal.

Yes, because Michael Bay changing something about a TV show you watched as a child to make a blockbuster movie with too many explosions is right up there on the importance scale with ending discrimination, defending free speech, and stopping senseless violence. The law says I can't get married where I live, governments are trying to impose regulation on the Internet, and countless people are losing their lives to tyranny in other parts of the world, but have you heard about the new Michael Bay movie? He must be stopped!

Sorry, Mashed. I understand the point you're trying to make, but the two simply don't compare.

Of course those things you mentioned are more important  :)

I think it should be "Teenage Alien Ninja Turtles and Other Important Matters", but that'd just be too long. In any case, I feel oddly used to people from the first world complaining about crap that is way different from for instance what Gaijin and the Team write about.
But to be honest, I have nothing to add about Michael Bay retconning the Turtles' origin. I am more interested in The_Fan_of_All_Things_Japanese's complaints.

So yeah... Apparently I am not the only one who finds the original topic of the thread to be kinda meh, seeing how it went off its tracks.
