The Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is a lot more mature than I remember

Maybe it's just a product of its time, with a little bit of John Hughes for inspiration surrounding the writing and production, but rewatching the original TMNT with my 6 year old recently had me realize that this is not your average kids movie.

Of course kids movies in the 80s and 90s were a lot different than now, this movie had some hard hitting moments and took itself seriously when it needed to at the right times.

It still stands up as a great film today, especially if you get a remastered high definition edition. The grain on that film feels so much different than any other kids movie.
