It Wouldn’t Be a ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ Movie Without a Totally Tubular Rap Song

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

Rebooting a franchise can mean a lot of changes to a beloved film property, and that tends to inspire everything from angry Tweets to petitions and boycotts. Just recall all the complaints about the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie at various stages of both rumor and actual production. Fans are wary of there being too many alterations to their favorite heroes in a half shell, and they weren’t having any of that alleged alien race nonsense. But you know what would really have put pitchforks in their hands aimed at the throat of producer Michael Bay? The lack of a Tmnt-centric rap song on the soundtrack. Fortunately, the upcoming movie does have one of those. We can all finally rest easy with this news. The tune this time is titled “Shell Shocked” and it’s performed by Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J and Ty Dolla $ign with material from Brian Tyler’s score for the film »

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

3 hours 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

4 hours 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

6 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

7 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

7 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)

21 July 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | 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 »
