Record Date: August 06, 2014, 11:44 AM

Plot Summary: A quartet of adolescent turtles use their martial arts skills to fight crime in New York City.

Note: The heroes in a half-shell are back on the big screen this Summer, so Witney (co-host of The B-Movies Podcast and film critic for Nerdist Industries) joins me to revisit the original, theatrical outing of the green foursome. We discuss the history of the franchise, animatronics versus CGI, the political backlash against violent entertainment aimed at children during the 1990s' and the cultural climate change between moviegoers, then and now. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your DVD, and please support the podcast by clicking on the "Donate" button at the top of the homepage.
