   I don’t have much to say about this photo, other than I was going through my, now, decades old  digital archives and ran across this awesome picture. Jim didn’t feel comfortable directing some of the action sequences for the first film, but he did it well and actually enjoyed the experience. He was a great guy who gave us so much. For that reason I felt like sharing this image. Now I feel like watching this one. Sounds like my Sunday movie is is now chosen.

At times there are a few cringe worthy moments, yet on the whole it’s a wonderful film. You can view it for yourself on Netflix.

Turtle Power (2014)

 pizza-gyoza  This is a wonderful documentary on the full history of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s a great, and informative, watch. You can’t beat the rental price of $2.99 either. I was onboard the TMNT train back in 84, when I discovered the 2nd printing of issue number one at my favorite comic book shop, Comics & Comix, in Citrus Heights, California.
