Better Than Vanilla Ice? Hear the New 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Rap

1 hour ago | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

The only way you can forget Vanilla Ice's "Ninja Rap" from the seminal 1991 motion picture about the ramifications of an evil mob's collaborations with a polluting chemical company is if you weren't alive to remember it in the first place. Once you hear "Go ninja, go ninja, go ninja, go!" it's physically impossible to not lose your fool mind to the rhythm of the groove and start searching for a VHS of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. But because nothing is ever sacred, the new Michael Bay-produced Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is turning its back on the proud legacy of Vanilla Ice by creating an entirely new and wholly original song for the Megan Fox vehicle. And as with "Ninja Rap" 23 years ago...

New 'Tmnt' Spots With Ridiculous 'Tmnt' Rap Song Is Kind Of Great

1 hour ago | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Ok, my "history" with this new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie has been an emotional roller coaster.

First, I reviewed a script that had the Turtles as alien beings from Dimension X. It had a pretty good first act that I'd totally watch and love, but it ended with the Technodrome warping into Manhattan. Well it Ended for real with a shot of a bunch of new Turtles, including some chicks.

Then Michael Bay said I was full of crap, then I lined up the dates on the script with the news of what drafts were announced, then I got invited down to the set in lower Manhattan where I was happy to see that the design changes to characters were the most drastic: there was a Shredder a Splinter, an April some Ooze, some Ninjas - you know, a Turtle movie. It seemed like the ship was righted and »

The more footage I see from this film, the better it's looking to me.  Forget the VFX and how the Turtles look for a moment, and the film looks like a lot of fun and they act like the Ninja Turtles we all grew up with and love.  It could be way better than people were expecting.  At the least, the action looks pretty good, and it's on full display with this new Spot (brought from Machinima):

New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles TV Spot Online

3 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

A hallmark of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cinematic outings in the 1990s were the awesomely awful (or awfully awesome, depending on your view) rap tunes that accompanied them, notably Partners In Kryme’s Turtle Power and Vanilla Ice’s Ninja Rap. The, er, proud tradition continues with the new Turtles movie, as Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign have produced Shell Shocked, as showcased on the film’s new TV spot. It’s certainly a step up from the earlier efforts, though the real test will come as to whether it’ll stand the test of time by becoming an annoying earworm in the style of this or this.The new mini-trailer meanwhile, reveals a few new snippets from the film, which finds the heroes in a half shell called upon to save New York City from Shredder and his evil Foot Clan. You know, business as usual for the boys. »

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Song Might Be As Bad As the Movie

4 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Welp, Michael Bay's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles finally got its flashy end credits song, and ... I don't know. "Shell Shocked" is a wall of noise, with Juicy J hogging all the cringey Tmnt references ("All my brothers tryna get some cheddar / We all want our cut like the Shredder"). Although it must be said that Ty Dolla $ign does mention pizza.Anyway: Nope, it'll never be Vanilla Ice's "Go Ninja, Go Ninja, Go" from 1991's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Or the insanely catchy theme song from the Tmnt cartoon of our youths: »

Go Ninja Go! Listen to the new rap song from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

4 hours ago | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

Back in 1991, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret Of The Ooze opened in theaters and featured the up and coming rapper Vanilla Ice performing the song "Ninja Rap". While Vanilla Ice may no longer be a top musician, his contribution to the franchise is still a pop culture favorite. So, with Jonathan Liebesman and Michael Bay's reboot of the series coming, it was time for a new rap song to highlight the film. The musical landscape is very different now than it was in 1991, »

The New 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Rap Is 100% Vanilla Ice-Free (Video)

22 hours ago | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Move over Vanilla Ice: There's a new gang who's cornering the market on crime-fighting turtle-themed rap music.

In promotion of the new Michael Bay-produced "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" flick set to hit theaters this summer, studio Paramount has released a new single that will be on the movie's soundtrack and feature in the film. The track, "Shell Shocked," is performed by Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign, and perhaps intentionally reminds us quite a bit of "Ninja Rap," the single performed by Vanilla Ice in "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze."

Unlike "Ninja Rap," however, "Shell Shocked" is a bit more creative with its verses and chorus, though it can't resist some cheesy lines of its own. (Literally. At one point, the phrase "We make it look easy" is rhymed with "Gimme that whole pie -- real cheesy.") The tune is a lot of fun, »

Purge: Anarchy Hoax Claims 112 Murdered by Chicago Re-Enactors

21 July 2014 11:45 AM, PDT | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

As you may have seen, a news story coming out of Chicago made the rounds across the internet this past weekend, claiming that 112 people had been murdered by a group of teens whose killing spree was inspired by The Purge: Anarchy (review).

It's precisely those kinds of stories that give horror movies a bad name, but thankfully, this one wasn't legit.

The website Cream Bmp Daily reported on the story Friday, which was packed with alleged quotes from both civilians and police officers.

The mass killing was described as a re-enactment of The Purge: Anarchy, taking place shortly after the movie hit theaters on Friday night. The site reported that no arrests had been made and that police would be closely monitoring social media sites, waiting for the teenage killers to brag about their crimes.

Fortunately, the obviously fake story was shortly thereafter debunked by The Epoch Times, who revealed »

A new “Kids React” video from YouTube content creators The Fine Bros. shows that kids aren't all that impressed by the new “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle” movie from producer Michael Bay. After giving their opinion on the opening sequence for the original “Tmnt” cartoon series (guys liked it, girls didn't), children between the ages of 6 and 12 watched the first trailer for the Aug. 8 release from Paramount.

Are CG characters now the main attraction in blockbusters?

21 July 2014 8:07 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Mark wonders whether we're now at the point where CG characters matter more than human ones to Hollywood...

Feature

This article contains spoilers for Godzilla and Transformers: Age Of Extinction. Also, there are some mild spoilers for Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, but nothing you haven’t seen in the trailers.

In the last decade or so, computer generated characters have taken a quantum leap forward in blockbuster cinema. You can probably mark the transition around the time that Yoda went from being a Jim Henson creation to a digitally rendered sprite in Star Wars: Episode II, but bigger technological leaps have followed, particularly in performance capture.

Andy Serkis has been a big ambassador for this, earning a reputation as a Boris Karloff figure for the digital age in the process and a loyal core of fans who still insist that he deserved an Oscar for his turn »

Burning Questions: Are Marvel films Interchangeable?

21 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Amir here and I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore. There is no Marvel movie in theatres at the moment but the world is anticipating Guardians of the Galaxy very soon, as has been the case every few months for the past several years. Like Michael Bay films, discussed in the box office column, Marvel films are entities I have vowed not to ever see again, especially after news came out that Edgar Wright was taken off Ant-Man. I was marginally interested in Guardians after seeing the kooky trailer, but who are we kidding? The off-kilter humor of the short preview is going to give way to explosions and “things crashing into other things” and the experience will be like every single other Marvel film.

Which brings me to this frustrating news: Marvel has announced release dates for (hopefully all) their future films until the end of the decade, »

Falling Skies renewed for 5th and final season

20 July 2014 11:29 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

TNT has renewed Falling Skies for season 5, which is to be the sci-fi's last...

News

TNT's Earth-invasion sci-fi, Falling Skies, has been renewed for a fifth season, which is also to be its last. In summer 2015, a ten-episode final season of the Noah Wyle-starring alien attack drama will bring Falling Skies' story to a close. 

Knowing that the end is coming invariably makes creative teams happier to wield the scythe, so we can expect some eventful episodes to come in this season and the next. As TNT puts it, "Falling Skies has begun an ambitious and thrilling story arc this summer as it sets the stage for next year’s climactic final season."

Also returning next year on TNT is The Last Ship, which will return for an extended thirteen-episode season in 2015. The Michael Bay-produced series, inspired by William Brinkley's apocalypse novel of the same name, »
