Vanilla Ice throws in his two cents regarding the latest TMNT anthem

08.04.2014

Reviews are starting to pour in regarding the latest TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES feature, but it's time to get down to the review that really matters about the song everyone (no one) is talking about. That's right. Vanilla Ice has given his official review on the turtle's latest anthem, Shell Shocked, and it doesn't paint a pretty picture.

In Ice's own words:

With respect to all of the artists, the song doesn't really do it for me. It feels a little artificial—what I mean by that is that it sounds like a bunch of executives in the corporate world put it together. It really does not fit the theme of the Ninja Turtles legend. I think you have to understand, and be a true Ninja, to possess the Magic to really pull off the secret sound.

I didn't know Vanilla Ice was a true ninja!!! In all seriousness, I agree with his synopsis. Then again, rap isn't really my genre of choice, although I find his Ninja Rap far superior for what it's worth. Our latest JoBlo video review sounds like the movie is exactly that I thought it would be, which is popcorn entertainment. I'm definitely down for checking that out, but somehow I doubt audiences will be able to forgo GUARDIANS come this weekend. We'll find out this time next week!

TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES his theaters this Friday.

Why couldn't they just use this song again?  Isn't retro in?

Going To

Have to agree with Ice on this one. The new song sounds like generic shite. His was corny and ridiculous but that (even then) added to the child-like essence of the film. Instead of having fun with the theme, they made it a little more serious to fit their edgier look and tone. I do understand the intent of the song, but it sucks horribly. It's one of those rap songs where a bunch of people take turns spitting out lyrics with no meaning. It's soulless and lacks any emotion to the film. Fail.

as lame as Ninja Rap was, it has a fun feel to it that can still be appreciated while this new song really doesn't. I dunno, I kinda agree with him on this one. Same goes for that other new TMNT song by...I don't even remember who. Both songs are pretty terrible and forgettable.

I'm glad he's being honest about it. A lot of times, when artists are asked to comment on a controversial re-imagining of their work, they tend to go every soft on the topic and lean positive so they don't risk burning any future bridges. It nice to see someone be no-bullshit for once.

That stupid fucking "knock knock you're about to get shell shocked" is stuck in my head. It is infuriating.

Considering Mr. Rip Van Winkle was completely stoned out of his gourd for most of his "career" (see his tv interviews from the 80's-90's...he's zoned out), and his career isn't going anywhere, it's not surprising that he's making these comments.

Considering the guy has his own real estate company and a very successful show on Home network. Id say he is doing VERY well for himself.

Of course

there's nothing corporate about Ninja Rap. I actually kinda dig "Shell Shocked", both are guilty pleasures. But nuthin' beats TURTLE POWER [link]!
