T-U-R-T-L-E POWER! Watch The Original TMNT Film With Us Tonight

Ninja Turtles

Want to see what you’re missing out on at Patreon? Join us at 6pm Pacific for live film commentary on the original (and BEST) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film!

If you aren’t a part of the Laser Time Patreon (and you REALLY should be a part of it), then you might not know we made a change to the Monday Night Movie commentaries! In case you hadn’t heard: From now on, the live stream of the movie commentary will be open to whoever can show up on time (check out the May movie schedule), though the archive/MP3 version of it will remain exclusive to our wonderful Patreon members (and did we mention that as little as $5 a month on the Laser Time Patreon is 100% worth it?!?!). So, what are we going to be watching, live, RIGHT HERE at 6pm Pacific time? The truly radical and bodacious film that made us all believe a turtle could ride a skateboard…

(Is it just us, or do all the voices sound super wrong in this original trailer?)

Way back in 1990, almost no one making films thought a Ninja Turtles film could work, let alone be a huge box office hit. So, what was basically an independent production partially financed by a top Hong Kong studio made TMNT a reality. With a surprisingly dark take and some very impressive tech from the Jim Henson Company, Leo, Ralph, Donny, and Mikey exploded into reality in this gritty (by kids standards) film. So grab your Jose Canseco bat, your turtle wax, and don’t leave behind a sai as we watch what remains the best TMNT film ever.

You can buy the Digital Download on Amazon – or you could use the teachings of the Foot Clan and find a less legal way of watching it, but what would Splinter think of that? Either way, join us at 6pm Pacific to watch along on the Twitch stream below! And if you’re a Patreon supporter, you can download the MP3 archive the day after the stream!

In the meantime, get a taste of how these streams go by watching a previous freebie – maybe it’ll inspire you to jump on the Patreon Bandcamp. Also, just last week we played through the TMNT Arcade game, so watch along if you’re dying for more turtle nostalgia…

  1. If anyone even flirts with the idea of any turtle being better than Donny, I’m out.

  2. I won’t dispute that this is the best film of the TMNT, but I think TMNT 2 is a much more enjoyable watch.
