    I would imagine the same reason they gave the turtles those soft pillowy lips was to make lip sync easier on the animators. Same reason the Lizard from the last spiderman movie had that weird flat face. Still, it kinda looks "off".

    I've never seen a Michael Bay produced movie, and it doesn't look like I'm going to start now. I'll keep my TMNT arcade and old cartoons nostalgia instead of modern day productions like this one.

    I'm actually ok with how the Turtles look. I know i'm in the minority on this but hear me out.

    I knew they were gonna look different. I wasn't holding my breath and honestly? This could have been WAY worse then it was.

    As far the movie goes I can't and won't say if it's going to be bad as of right now as I'm reserving my judgment for when the film comes out. If it turns out to be good, I'm all for it. If it turns out to be bad? Eh, whatever. It'll probably be as bad as the other stinkers I've seen.

    What i'm far more upset about is Megan Fox being cast as April O'Neil.
    OUT OF ALL THE ACTRESSES THEY COULD HAVE CHOSEN.
    THEY
    CHOSE
    MEGAN
    FOX.

    With that said, I'll be impressed if she doesn't stick up this film with her attempts at acting. If she can kill it, i'll be impressed.

    I wanna add I also though that Sarah Silverman was gonna be awful in Wreck-It Ralph.

    I ain't afraid to be wrong.

    Every scene without the Turtles looks like it was footage for Transformers.

    And it is worse, they once again Whitewashed characters, especially the Shredder.

    Also, I think uncanny valley is a problem if something is so hideous they're driving people away.

    Are the turtles really Onions?




    Oddly enough the toys look less hideous than their CG counterparts they're based from, except for the fact I think that one dude from Beatlejuice came and shrunk Raph's head

    They're still ugly, but not scarey like the CG in that movie.

    Let's face it, mutant turtle creatures were never going to be handsome.

    first thoughts on seeing the trailer was 'Uncanny vally much'

    I can get the nose, but the eyes are way to human for my liking, not to mention LIPS and those presteen clean teeth that just look toony oO;

    The problem for me is the designs. Those turtles really look like Shrek´s long lost brothers to me (Thanks QTMelon)
    They sure did orc up those poor turtles.
