I'm a bad blogger....


I've been so busy writing for the News & Record, planning movie screenings, and promoting, that I have seriously neglected this poor blog. If it were a digi-pet, I'm afraid it would be sick, dead and/or surrounded by its own poop.

Will address this situation immediately.

Everything you ever wanted to know about 'TMNT' but were too afraid to ask.


"No special features? No problem!"

That's all I had to say after the recent and very disappointing release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990) on Blu Ray.

So I grabbed an international phone card, called English director Steve Barron, and got answers to some questions that have plagued me for decades. The result is this comprehensive radio documentary that explores not only how this exceptional comic book film was made, but also unmade by studio interference.

You’ll learn of deleted scenes, the origin of the movie’s soundtrack, plus the inspiration behind the movie’s dark and gritty tone.
