It Coulda Been Worse Volume 1: TMNT

Okay, let's face it: a Michael Bay-infused Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles might not have been at the top of a lot of our "must see" lists. Regardless, the movie directed by Jonathan Liebesman is on the way and hitting theaters August 8th.

And in its honor, we're going to start a new feature here at SPT: It Coulda Been Worse. This feature will be an optimists view on something which might entirely suck, but really could have been a lot worse. 

Here's how:

• M. Night Shyamalan's Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

• Tyler Perry Presents: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (starring Tyler Perry)

• Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Mutation After Next (a spin-off film of the Power Rangers-esque series)

How else could it have been worse? Tell us in the comments!
