“You are a self confessed Lord of the Rings geek, I know that.. And.. Uhm, when you see something like that, and as a fan, and you’re watching it- you know.. Are you satisfied?” “With Lord of the Rings?” “Yeah!”
Honestly, I love TMNT 2 possibly more than is healthy, but aside from the fact that Donnie was undisputedly the most-featured/most important turt in the whole movie (like, the movie is really fricking clear about how it’s Donnie holding everything together and he gets a total win, I’m so happy you guys) –
– my favorite part of the movie is how over Casey Jones and His White Dude Protagonist Backstory April is. She has no time for Casey until a) he defends the turtles, who are her family; and b) he starts proving he’s useful (“It’s way easier to pick a cop’s pocket than you might think”).
I really love Megan Fox as April O’Neil, and while I don’t like that they did the expected Look It’s Megan Fox and She’s Hot scene in the movie, I do appreciate that it’s framed as April choosing to use that as a way to get the information she needs. She’s a stone-cold badass.
