Not my bag
I read as well.
Good column, but not my thing. While I will acknowledge that TNMT (the first film only) won me over to point where I was even humming/singing the theme-song from the humpty-hump guy, it's always going to be a struggle to get me to like this kind of thing. Maybe when I feel that I'm sick and tired of everyone being cool and bad-ass I might want to see anti-serious satires such as Boris the Bear, Tick, etc. In the present, I'm down with Dark Knight, Iron Man, and Captain America if they make the movie like they have a pair of balls.
