The second adaptation of the film showed me that in Transformers, there is such a thing as "Robot Heaven" which had me dumbfounded.
Take the new adaptation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles we will soon see in which Michael Bay has turned the turtles from Mutations into Aliens. The whole IDEA of the story is completely flawed and all they are doing is tagging a popular thing from the past into the title of the film to get people to see it when it has nothing to do at all with the original story. I watched (and read) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles growing up... Not Teenage Alien Ninja Martians. I know that these are geared specifically for the "summer blockbuster" in order to attempt to break attendance records, but if they are not (or VERY loosely) tied to the original stories, they should not have the right to use that for a title. Think of something else creative on your own, rather than just taking the stories from my childhood and bastardizing them in order for you to have a popular name associated with you product. My opinion I guess, but it's something that I extremely disapprove of.
