I've not seen TMNT, but April was always ginger in the cartoons! I know it's not a defining characteristic but it bugs me a little when they just ignore stuff like that.
Tonight is a special night. One of my very close friends and I have a thing about watching the excellent, if also somewhat nonsensical bollocks film that is "The Core". We once watched it together and both loved it. And now have a somewhat weird habit of doing a running commentary over it, acting bits out and we even bring our own peaches and hair spray (that will make sense if you remember the film). It's pretty ridiculous behaviour but so much fun. We started doing this in high school. I also love her dearly and haven't seen her in quite a while.
To review: the film is total BS. The plot is mediocre, the details are ridiculous but it falls into the "so bad, it's good" category (in my head it goes (Great, Good, Bad, So bad it's good, So bad it's just bad) with enjoyment dropping over the first three, spiking in the 4th again and dropping for the final one). Just don't take it too seriously and I think it's great. I don't know if I'd have liked it if not seeing it with her for the first time, but this film will forever hold a special place in my heart.
In fact, it's her birthday soon. I'm going to head into Town and see if I can find it on blu-ray for her.
I've been a little down in the dumps lately, but this has cheered me up to no end.
A ridiculous film with a ridiculous budget of $60 million! I mean who really thought that was a good enough idea to spend that sort of money on?! However I think the fact that it tried to be a serious disaster movie made the ridiculousness even more fun!
Shame I didn't realise just quite how stupid it was when I watched it for the first time around aged 14... It would have saved me embarrassing myself in front of my class by asking my chemistry teacher why 'Unobtainium' wasn't on the periodic table.
